Awning replacement windows are an excellent choice for your property. They offer better ventilation and more privacy, and they can architecturally enhance your home. Zen Windows believes when you know more, you make better-informed decisions. Here’s what you need to know about awning replacement windows:
What Are Awning Windows?
Awning windows are small windows hinged at the top. They open outward like casement windows, except they open from the top, not the side.
Awning windows are usually installed:
- Above another window for better ventilation and to accent the “main” window
- In tight spaces
- Where privacy is needed
You have lots of variations and configuration possibilities with awning windows. For example, installing an awning window in a high location allows for more natural light and ventilation without sacrificing privacy. High window placement also lets you utilize more wall space for décor or furniture placement.
How Do Awning Windows Operate?
Awning windows are perfect for those rainy days when you want to enjoy the gentle rhythm of raindrops on your window and the clean, earthy smell of renewal. Your open awning windows block the rain, but they allow the sounds and smells of nature in your home without jeopardizing floors and furniture.
Awning windows can be installed in places where other types of windows just won’t work. Basements are a popular place, as are the spaces above kitchen sinks and countertops.
Are Awning Windows Energy-Efficient?
All Zen Windows are energy-efficient, and awning windows are no exception. Awning windows may be considered even more energy-efficient than most because their design has no moving parts, so there are few potential leak spots. Our replacement awning windows also have an airtight seal when closed, which eliminates drafts and helps lower your energy bill.
Awning windows can be double- and triple-paned for greater efficiency. You can also buy awning windows with options that include thermal-enhancing features:
- Insulated frames
- Low-E glass
What Do Awning Windows Cost?
Costs vary by region because materials and labor are different within U.S. states. You can use a ZIP code calculator to find median prices for awning windows. Median prices are “middle of the road” best-guesstimates. (You’ll find lower and higher prices.)
The biggest factor in determining an awning window price is the material from which it’s made. Wood is the most expensive material for windows. A wood awning window can cost $1,000 or more.
Fiberglass awning windows are the second most expensive. They cost more, but they are stronger than vinyl. Fiberglass windows are as energy-efficient as vinyl but more eco-friendly: Fiberglass can be recycled at the end of its lifetime.
Quality vinyl awning windows are less expensive than fiberglass but deliver amazing quality. Our vinyl windows have a lifetime warranty. They’re the most affordable option, and they are:
Replacement windows deliver a measurable ROI (return on investment) for your property. Professionally installed vinyl windows can return as much as 77.5% of your cost. You may also be eligible for tax credits with ENERGY STAR® rated Zen Windows installations.
Installing replacement awning windows is not a DIY job. One reason is if there is damage to your property as a result of a handyman or DIY remodeling, your insurance company can deny coverage.
