About Awning Windows


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.
