Awning vs. Casement Windows

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

Differences Between Awning & Casement Windows

The most notable difference between awning and casement windows is that awning windows are hinged at the top while casement windows are hinged on the side. Both open using a hand crank and are an excellent choice when you want an unobstructed view, 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 awning windows 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.

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.
