Get a New Angle on Your Home with Awning Windows
Awning windows can give a unique tilt to the look of your home thanks to their unusual opening style and wide variety of looks. The outward tilting movement of an awning window makes a home with even the most mundane of appearances stand out amidst all of the other houses on the block.
Awning windows get their name from the way they tilt upward and open at an angle over the rest of the window. The resulting position of the window is similar to the position of a traditional fabric awning that is placed over a window.
These types of windows can be opened in a number of ways. Some awning windows are opened by a crank that is turned to raise them upward. Other windows are simply unlatched and can be pushed open. The windows can be secured by a latch lock that is raised or lowered to lock or unlock.
