Updating your home awnings

Awning windows offer you a clear view to the world outside.

There are many different product lines, styles and options available to best fit your needs.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t give a special thanks here to our dear friend, Nikki Wynn of . There’s one over the bedroom window on the curb side and a long one covering both living room windows on the driver’s side.

Usually they are wider than tall, their entire sash opens to provide full side-to-side ventilation.

Awning windows are simple and easy to open with just the turn of a handle, no need to lift or lower sashes.

It means that as we select each component to make our finished products we look at how it improves thermal performance, functionality and dependability.

And it means paying attention to all the small details throughout the manufacturing and delivery process—even hand-washing each window before it’s packaged for shipping.

It’s the perfect DIY project and we’ll show you exactly how it’s done.

It’s such an easy job that we’re not sure what took us so long to finally get around to it! We're happy with the techniques and products we use, but be sure to confirm that all methods and materials you use are compatible with your equipment and abilities.

Before placing our order for a matching A&E / Dometic awning, we noted the color code of the fabric and hardware from our original awnings and measured the window to determine what size we’d need.

We’re taking advantage of the extra space on each side to order one that’s wider than usual, extending 9 inches out on each side of the window.

Awnings were designed to suit any area in your home.

Awning windows are hinged on the top and open outward.

We have lots more videos in the works and our subscribers are the first to hear about them.
