Awning Windows Defined

Like casement windows, awning windows open outward with a user-friendly folding handle to enable ventilation. The difference with awning windows is they are hinged at the top of the frame and swing outward from the bottom, making them an excellent window choice for homeowners who desire additional airflow while protecting their home’s interior from the exterior elements.

The Milgard Ultra Series fiberglass windows are top-of-the-line when it comes to window technology. Fiberglass is an eco-friendly window material that provides the highest energy-efficiency levels available. Fiberglass is made primarily of silica sand, an abundant natural resource. Glass is made primarily of sand. Thus the frame and glass expand and contract at roughly the same rate while remaining resistant to swelling, rotting, and warping, allowing for a longer lifespan.

Features and Benefits:

  • Extremely durable with an expected lifespan of nearly 80 years.

  • Strong frame material allows for large custom sizes

  • Paintable frames that homeowners can update to match current home color trends

  • Low expansion/contraction rate through 100-degree temperature changes means less glass and caulking failure over time

  •  An Energy Star package tailored to the Seattle region for optimal energy efficiency.

  •  Custom colors, hardware, and glass options to match any home design.

Awning Window Maintenance Tips

Although your new awning window replacements will last a very long time without any maintenance, proper care will help you extend the life of your windows and keep your home comfortable and energy efficient for years to come. Here are some tips to keep your awning windows, and all other windows, in top shape:

  • Clean the windows often: Regularly cleaning your windows and frames can help prevent the buildup of dirt, debris, and mold.

  • Inspect hardware: Check your windows’ hinges, locks, and handles periodically to ensure they’re well-lubricated and in good working order.

  • Inspect caulking: After a couple of years, inspect the weatherstripping, caulk, and sealant annually and reseal if necessary.

  • Double-check locks: Over time, test the locks on your windows to ensure they’re in good working order and secure.

  • Replace weatherstripping: After a few years, check weatherstripping for signs of tearing, cracking, or peeling and replace it as needed to ensure an air-tight seal.

Awning Window FAQs

What is the difference between casement and awning windows?

The primary difference between awning and casement windows is the placement of their hinges and the way they open. While casement windows are hinged on the side and swing from left to right like a door, awning windows are hinged on the top and turn upward from the bottom, leaving the pane to act as an awning over the window opening.

How safe are awning windows?

Awning windows are an excellent choice for providing enhanced security and privacy for your home. Locking the lower sash against the weatherstripping makes your awning window more difficult to open from outside. Additionally, the tilt in design allows for easy cleaning, minimizing the ability for passers-by to peep in. If you have any additional questions about the safety features of your awning windows, please don’t hesitate to contact us!

How far out do awning windows open?

A modern, hand-crank awning window can open to 90°, leaving the pane to protrude anywhere between a few inches up to five and a half feet, depending on the window size.

Are there any disadvantages of awning windows?

Although awning windows are great for security and privacy, they offer less ventilation than other window types. Since the window swings inwards, it can be difficult to open in tight spots. They can also become clogged with rain or debris if in an area of your home that receives direct rainfall.

Aren’t awning windows a bad idea in Seattle?

Awning windows are an excellent choice for Seattle homes. The enhanced security and privacy, easy cleaning, and efficient air sealing can be beneficial in the rain and harsh weather of the Pacific Northwest.
