Awning windows are a versatile window style that suits any home, from classic Victorians to ramblers. But with so many window styles to choose from, what makes awning windows different?

An awning window design allows the window sash to open outward, instead of inward or up and down. This design means that awning windows take up very little space while providing considerable ventilation. In fact, awning windows were commonly used between the 1920s and 1950s in schools, manufacturing plants, and some homes prior to air conditioning due to this design.

The outward opening design of an awning window is perfect for tight spaces, such as in kitchens or bathrooms. The angle of the opening also provides wonderful ventilation even in rain, as the window opens at the bottom which helps prevent most rain from entering the home when the window is open.

Awning windows work well in conjunction with other window styles, such as casement windows or even picture windows. At Renewal by Andersen, we have a variety of colors, hardware, grilles, glass and insect screens to customize your awning windows.

Hear From Our Customers

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!
