Adding Value With Awning Windows
A great way to value to an existing room, as well as added style and function, is to replace the existing windows with hinged awning windows. Also known as casement windows, awning windows are hinged at the top, allowing for the window frame to move inward or outward. (windows hinged at the bottom are known as hoppers).
They are primarily used singly or in pairs within a common frame, in which case they are hinged on the outside. The windows are opened with a crank, lever or a cam handle, which is placed approximately hand height for the average person.
Function, style, and security are major strong points of awning windows. You certainly wouldn’t be making a bad choice if you wanted to add awning windows to an existing room. High quality awning windows are a strong selling point and makes an estate agents job easier when showing potential buyers around a property.
