Casement vs. Awning: Which Makes The Best Garage Window?

Every garage needs a window to allow light and ample ventilation to enter its enclosed space. Two of the most commonly used garage windows are casement and awning windows. However, they don’t fit all garage types and you should understand their differences to determine the best one for yours.

Asher Lasting Exteriors, the leading gutters installation company, discusses these two window types.

Casement Windows

The casement window is composed of two sashes opening outward on a vertical axis. It is available in one, two, three, four or five-lite configurations to suit whatever taste or design a homeowner wishes to have. A casement window is suited for spaces with greater height than width.

Awning Windows

Awning windows are similar to casement windows in that they are hinged on one side and open outward, but where casement windows open sideways, awnings open upward. They’re quite the space savers since they fit tight spaces due to their width.

The Verdict

Both of these crank window types give homeowners unobstructed view, effortless operation, easy maintenance and proper ventilation. They are both also the right standard size. The biggest variation differences between the two window types are their size, use and style.

For single door garages, the awning window is the perfect window to install. An awning replacement window won’t take up much space and would complement your exterior.

For multiple garage doors, the casement window is the way to go. It allows more ventilation for a bigger enclosed space, as well as allow more light inside.
