Awning vs Casement Windows: What’s the Difference?

Whether you have a traditional, modern, or neo-modern home style, NEWPRO Home Solutions will install the most energy-efficient windows available. Beautiful, perfect windows greatly enhance a home’s exterior, and first impressions mean everything when it comes to house buying.

If you’re wondering where to begin, NEWPRO Home Solutions is here to help. We provide premium window installation services that fit your needs and budget. Our business offers everything from vinyl window frames to triple-pane glass. If you have an unconventional house with uncommon window shapes, sizes, or designs, we can provide custom window solutions to fit your needs.

In this guide, you’ll learn more about the similarities and differences between awning and casement windows.

Awning vs Casement Windows

Known collectively as crank windows, awning and casement windows come in different configurations and designs. If you’re trying to choose the best windows for an area of your home where you want maximum ventilation such as your bathroom, kitchen, or basement awning and casement windows are both excellent choices. Both window styles open fully outward, allowing for excellent ventilation and airflow. However, there are situations where one is a better pick than the other.

Differences Between Awning & Casement Windows

When considering an awning vs a casement window, the most notable difference is that awning windows are hinged at the top, while casement windows are hinged at the side. Both open using a hand crank and are excellent choices when you want unobstructed views of the outdoors, as they don’t have middle rails or meeting sashes. They’re also exceptionally easy to clean, as you can reach both sides of the glass from inside your home.

The main functional difference between the two — and the possible advantage of choosing awning windows — is that they can be left open during light rain because they provide a shield against raindrops entering your home. Awning windows are also ideal when the width of the window opening is greater than the height, while casement windows are the better choice if the height is greater than the width.

Both window options let in tons of fresh air and natural light. Awning and casement windows are also incorporated into other types of window designs. For instance, casement windows can be incorporated into the installation of bow or bay windows. One, two, or more casement windows can flank a picture window, in configuration. You can also have awning windows flanking a picture or fixed window. 

Casement windows are great for kitchens. You can have one installed over the kitchen sink. Meanwhile, an awning window is an excellent choice for smaller bathrooms, especially if it opens upward to let out musky odors.

The locking system and crank mechanism for both widow types have evolved. They are much easier to operate, which is excellent for older people or people with mobility needs. Contact NEWPRO today to get efficient, new windows for your homes.

Cold stays out in the winter. Cold stays in during the summer.

The best thing I love is the craftsmanship from NEWPRO. You'd never know we had the old door cut out because it was rotted from the New England weather.
