Hopper windows are well known for their use in basements. Basement areas without natural light can seem cave-like and dank. Hopper windows provide a solution that keeps out unwanted yard debris while allowing for ventilation and lighting. Perfect for any hard to light area, hopper windows are durable and affordable.
The construction of a hopper window features a bottom hinge that allows the top of the window to tilt inward. The result is an area of ventilation while the sash prevents unwanted dirt or mud from entering the home. When closed the windows are secure and prevent airflow and moisture, a must-have for any window solutions that are close to ground level.
In addition to basements, the hopper window is great for other areas including attics and small spaces where other solutions won’t work as well. If necessary, you can open the full window for the benefit of airflow.
Hopper windows are similar to casement and awning windows. The main difference between all three lies in how the windows open. Hopper windows feature an easy-open handle that eases the latch on the window open with a simple turn. These windows are ideal for spaces that require a window to open toward the inside.
Natural ventilation in otherwise small or closed-off spaces can improve the health of individuals living in the home. It can also improve the home by allowing fresh air in and reducing the amount of moisture or mold growth when used appropriately.
