There are a variety of window styles available to you. Whether single, double hung, awning or casement, all of them are useful in their own ways, helping to provide ventilation for your interiors and allowing natural light to enter your home. While most window styles are good at providing ventilation, not all of them are as good in letting natural light into your rooms and indoor spaces. Choosing the right window style for your home, then, is crucial.
What’s more, a study showed that about 26% of people consider naturally lit rooms to be one of the most important features of any home. If you plan to put your property up for sale in the future, the right window styles can significantly add to your return on investment

Awning replacement windows can be installed above, beside or below other windows, and they add more openings in your walls. As a bonus, they also provide adequate ventilation to any home.
