Common Awning Windows Sizes
October 11, 2010
Awning windows have a unique style because they are hinged at the top and open at the bottom with a crank handle. These windows are ideal for any room where you want the flexibility of air circulation even when it's raining.
Common Awning Windows Sizes: Living Rooms and the Like
There are many common awning windows sizes in square and rectangular shapes. In a large space, you might want a 72-inch square window or a 72-inch by 63-inch rectangle.
Awning window sizes are designed so the window can be used alone or in combinations, depending on the overall room size. Some people use them at the bottom of large, stationary rectangular windows in a family room or sunroom. This gives you the best of both worlds--expansive views and good air flow.
Common Awning Windows Sizes: Smaller Spaces
Awning window sizes for a basement or office would be smaller, ranging from 16 to 26 inches wide. In general, you'll find common awning windows sizes from 16 to 72 inches wide, typically getting larger in increments of four to eight inches. Custom windows are always an option, but they typically are more expensive.
Awning windows are priced from $200, depending on the size, shape and material.
Some awning windows have narrow jambs so they can fit as replacement windows into an existing window framing. If a standard window size is a little small for the opening, the contractor would build out the window framing to make a tight fit.
