When selecting replacement windows for your home, there are numerous types of windows to choose from. For maximum ventilation and unobstructed views, awning windows are a popular choice. Awning windows are similar to casement windows, but are hinged at the top instead of the side, and are ideal for windows that are wider than they are tall. Lifetime Aluminum in East Hanover, New Jersey, has been installing windows in Morris County and the surrounding area since 1956. This includes our awning windows, which offer homeowners many benefits over other replacement windows.

Why Choose Awning Windows

Awning windows open outward fully, which provides maximum ventilation and natural light. This makes them ideal for places where you need ventilation like kitchens and bathrooms. Since they’re hinged at the top, you can even have them open during light rain without the worry of water seeping into your home.

Because they don’t have rails or bars, they provide spectacular, unobstructed views. This makes them perfect for any room you want a magnificent view of the outdoors. Our awning windows frame your view with a stylish, contemporary look, combined with functional hardware that allows safe, trouble-free exterior surface cleaning from inside your home. This makes it easier to keep your windows sparkling, so your unobstructed view stays unobstructed.

Our awning windows have one of the industry’s lowest air infiltration rates because they include three consecutive seals of weather stripping. Your new awning windows will stop uncomfortable drafts from penetrating your home, and their weather-tight construction makes them energy-efficient.

Installation Considerations

Awning windows can be installed higher up than many other types of windows, which maximizes natural light and ventilation without compromising your privacy. However, this window style does require ample free space on the exterior of your home to allow it to fully open. Areas with nearby trees, shrubs or other obstructions aren’t compatible with awning windows. When you choose awning windows from Lifetime Aluminum, you’ll enjoy:

  • Stepped internal and contoured external profiles that minimize the frame and sash for more daylight.
  • Low-profile, dual-lever locking handle controls for added security.
  • Squareness ensured through our adjustable hinge system.
  • Dual weather-stripping system for added weather protection featuring a high-density polycell gasket and primary bulb seal.
  • Recessed screens positioned farther outside to maximize the appearance of the stepped profile and further increase viewing area.
  • Polyurethane window frame insulation for added comfort and the ultimate in energy efficiency.
