Broomfield Window Company's Awning Windows.
Broomfield Window Company - Awning and Hopper Window Replacement Services
What do you know about Awning Windows? Most of the time, you will see an Awning Window in a bathroom, in a basement, or in a kitchen. Awning Windows are being used in more and more places, thanks to their versatility.
Broomfield Window Company loves to include Awning Windows in their ‘must-have’ list of Window Replacements, because of the above mentioned versatility.
Do you know what an Awning Window is? An Awning Window is hinged at the top of the window, much like a casement window, but opens at the bottom by the simple turn of a crank. The windows open up from the bottom to allow ventilation from both sides of the window, allowing air to blow freely through a room where the Awning Window is located. Normally, you will see an Awning Window in a bathroom because they can be opened very discreetly, allowing privacy in bathroom settings while still providing ventilation. Families traditionally install a privacy awning window in bathrooms so they don’t have to worry about anyone seeing inside a bathroom when in use.
Broomfield Window Company specializes in installing Awning Windows, especially as a Window Replacement for traditional sliding windows in bathrooms.
Kitchens are also great places for Awning Windows, because of the easy ability for the Window to swing outward and not bother anything sitting on a windowsill. Only the crank gets in the way, and that is normally off to the side, or in the middle for easy access to open the window. Kitchens have become an increasingly popular place for Awning Windows in the past few years, especially in a city like Broomfield that often experiences high wind.
Where else would you find Awning Windows inside your home? In the past, we have installed Awning Windows above fixed windows so there is ventilation allowed inside a specific room. By opening the sash of the awning window slightly, you have the ability to allow air in during a light or heavy rain without letting the water in the windows. This is unlike other windows that open from the bottom or side that would let rain, wind, or debris into a room if they were open.
Some of the benefits of our Broomfield Window Company Awning Windows are as follows:
Basements are the most traditional place for a different kind of Awning Window, called a Hopper Window because they can swing open to the inside, most often inside of a window well.
Some things to keep in mind when choosing Awning or Hopper Windows are where you will be placing them. You won’t want to place an Awning or Hopper Window anywhere near a high traffic area due to the fact that they can get dirty very easily. Also, Awning or Hopper Windows need to be cleaned quite often, so keep that in mind before choosing to get them installed in your home.
Broomfield Window Company specializes in Installation of Awning and Hopper Windows, and recommends them for New Window Replacements because of their brilliantly aesthetic look. They are modern, provide incredible ventilation, and they offer great secure construction so that they seal shut when you close them.
Hopper Windows are almost the same as Awning Windows, except they are hinged at the bottom of the Window, opening at the top. Because they don’t offer the protection against the rain and wind that Awning Windows do, you most likely will only see Hopper Windows in basements.
