Awning Window Replacement

Awning windows, sometimes called crank windows, are a type of window with hinges on the top, allowing them to swing open from the bottom. Contact our team at J-Tech Construction for our awning window installation services in Lincoln, Omaha, and Grand Island, Nebraska.

An awning window, like a casement window, will have one or more hinges and open outward with the use of a crank handle. Awning windows are most often seen above a kitchen sink or in a laundry room. Awning windows have been a window of choice for years; people have always liked the choice of an awning window because you can even open it when it’s raining outside!

What Are Awning Windows?

Awning windows got their name from their unique ability to swing open from the top, as opposed to opening from the sides like other windows. Awning style windows are popular in both residential homes and commercial buildings. Homeowners can choose to install awning windows higher on walls for more privacy or lower for easier access. Like other types of windows, awning windows can also be combined with a screen to allow airflow while preventing bugs from getting in. Because awning windows open upward, one of their key benefits is that they allow airflow in a building while preventing rain and snow from getting in.

Frequently Asked Questions


You can choose to put a screen in during the awning window installation process to allow for air circulation without the risk of letting bugs in. Since awning style window screens are installed on the inside of the window, you’ll also need a winder to crank open the window when necessary.


Installing awning style windows will allow you to circulate fresh air into your house throughout the year to reduce heat and stuffiness. Since they swing outward from a top hinge, you can also open up your awning windows while it’s raining or snowing outside without risk of getting the inside of your home wet.


Some awning windows can be cleaned from inside, but if you have a screen installed, it will be more difficult. You will either need to remove the screen to clean the area surrounding the window, or you will need to go outside to clean the window.
