Hopper Window Installation & Replacement With Zen Windows

Popular in Basements & First Floor Bathrooms


Our window company offers hopper windows, which utilize a bottom-hinged system to allow airflow to circulate in a room that does not benefit from full-sized windows, such as basements and downstairs bathrooms.

Installing hopper windows is a great way to bring natural light and fresh air to darker spaces of the home, such as basements. Dark, musty areas don’t have to stay that way: Custom hopper windows can be added to your home to accommodate your living space’s specific needs. Read on to find out why hopper windows might be a better solution than awning windows for your home.

For hopper window installation or replacement services, trust our window experts at Zen Windows – call us at (877) 583-0423 today!

What Are Hopper Windows?

Hopper windows are similar to awning windows with one distinguishing difference: Hopper windows are hinged at the bottom and typically open inward at the top while awning windows are hinged at the top and open outward at the bottom. Usually, hopper windows are installed in basements in order to give more light and ventilation to otherwise dark and stuffy areas. However, there are plenty of interesting architectural designs that include hopper window installation, like adding them beneath classic double-hung windows or above doors for a truly unique aesthetic.

Hopper Windows Pros & Cons

Adding hopper windows to your home can provide you with great benefits. Not only are you allowing light to access darker spaces of your home, but the airtight seal against the window’s weather stripping makes it extremely energy-efficient. The top latch lock also makes hopper windows more secure than other window alternatives. They also have the ability to open inward or outward, unlike awning windows.

However, hopper windows come with a unique set of challenges every homeowner should consider before installing. Hopper windows opening outward can trap rainwater, debris, and insects falling down the side of the house because of their V-shaped opening. Inward opening hopper windows can also interfere with drapes and curtains in the home. Additionally, the top latch can be very difficult to get to and may require the use of a chair or step ladder to access.
