At Forst Builders, we’re in the business of all types of windows, including window awnings. Whether you are in Franklin, Brentwood or Nashville, windows are important. Your home's windows determine not only how you see the world, but how much energy you save, and of course how your house looks.
Awning windows are hinged at the top and designed to open outward, providing additional airflow to a room. They open and shut easily with the turn of a handle.
What are the key benefits of an awning window?
The biggest benefit of an awning window is being able to reach the crank to open the window, and crack it even when it’s raining, letting that fresh rain smell in. Since the awning window is hinged at the top, a little drizzle won’t stop you from enjoying a nice breeze drift through your home.
Awning windows work well not only in traditional homes but can be found on other home styles including cape cod, colonial, victorian, craftsman, ranch, cottage, farmhouse or tudor home.
What rooms works best for awning windows and why?
Awning windows work great in any room of the house, especially hard to reach areas like above a tub. These windows pair perfectly with fixed styles to add ventilation. They can be used in basements where there is no outside obstructions, so they can swing out.
If you've been thinking about getting an awning window, now is the time to act.
