Energy Efficient Awning Windows in Toronto
Awning-style windows are somewhat similar to casement windows in terms of how they are built and operated but with one notable difference - they are hinged at the top instead of the side.
In this type of window, the bottom of the sash is pushed away from the frame for up to 45 degrees, which ensures proper ventilation and doesn’t obstruct the view. This particular feature makes a vinyl awning window great for allowing airflow even on a rainy day.
Awning windows are equipped with a small fold-down handle, which tucks nicely into the base of the holder when not in use. Multi-point locks on either side of the window allow for a tighter seal and added security.
Taking full advantage of natural light and ventilation, the high placement of this window also allows for the maximum use of wall space, so positioning art and furniture is never an issue. A great way to maximize ventilation without the threat of water entering the home, the awning window is a favorite for placing in basements as well.
You can install a double awning window in areas like bathrooms because these windows when upgraded with textured glass can still be open without compromising privacy.
Modern awning windows can also be paired up with large fixed windows and make a suitable option for awkward areas where the available width does not allow for a casement option.

Awning Windows Sizes
Almost all windows used in homes do not come in standard sizes, they all get custom made to fit the openings available. There are some common sizes used by builders as 36 x 36" or 48 x 42" awning windows, but it's a small fraction of the market. It's actually cheaper and easier for the manufacturer to make the new windows rather than store all available sizes, which are pretty much endless.
Any size awning window can be made as long as it's within allowed size restrictions. At some point, the window becomes too small to fit the operating mechanisms inside the window or too big for those to hold the window's weight. The double-pane awning window should not be wider than 48" and higher than 72". For triple-pane heavier windows, it's 40" x 60".

Our clients ask
What is an awning window?
Awning windows open outward up to 35 degrees, so they can be left open even on rainy days. They have handles at the bottom and two lever locks on the sides. Awning windows provide extra ventilation and a wide open view.
When should you use awning windows?
You can install awning windows in most areas where an openable window is required, but in general they are used in bathrooms (because they can give you both ventilation and privacy), and kitchens (since you can open them with a crank for quick ventilation). Awning windows are a perfect solution everywhere, where you need to increase natural lighting and ventilation.
Are awning windows cheaper?
Compared with casement windows, awning windows are a little bit more expensive, because they have 1 extra locking handle, which makes them one of the most energy-efficient choices.
How big can awning windows be?
Standard awning window sizes are from 2” to 4” in width and from 2” to 6” in length. But there is also a variety of custom size options. Due to the hinge on top, awning windows can carry more weight, this means they can be much bigger than casement ones.
How much do awning windows cost to install?
The installation cost of an average size awning window is around $160-200, but the price may increase depending on the size of the opening, location and type of installation. The design of the window does not affect the price.
How long does it take to install the awning window?
A new awning window installation usually takes up to 2 hours. These time frames can change, depending on the location, size of the window and type of installation.
Do awning windows have screens?
All our openable windows come with screens by default, and awning windows are not the exception. The screens are placed on the inside of the frame, because the windows open outwards. The frame of the screens is made from aluminum, the mesh - from fiberglass. They are very easy to remove due to the spring-loaded retention system.
How secure are awning windows?
The security of awning windows is hard to beat. They can only be opened from the inside, because there are two locks on both sides of the frame, and when the window is closed and latched the only way to open it from the outside is to break the glass. Besides traditionally awning windows are located high on the wall, that increases security further.
