Sometimes, a little bit of air and a little bit of light is all you need. If that’s the case, Andersen awning windows may be the ideal solution for your Oakland or Macomb County home.
In fact, having these types of windows installed is especially optimal for Michigan homes, as they are particularly weather-resistant yet can provide just the right amount of air circulation.
What are Awning Windows and What are Their Benefits?
Awning windows are smaller windows that have hinges at the top of the frame, and they swing out from the bottom. They are typically opened with a crank of a handle.
Every now and then, you need to let the air in, even when it’s cold outside. For that reason, awning windows can be ideal for Michigan homes during cold weather, specifically. They let some air in or out without blowing bone-chilling wind throughout the entire room.
These window styles are smart choices for bathrooms, home libraries/dens, spice kitchens, laundry rooms, and office buildings. They also can be used to complement stationary picture windows installed in larger spaces.
Benefits of awning windows include:
- Getting fresh air in without worrying about rain or snow entering the home.
- Increased circulation.
- An option to open windows while maintaining privacy.
- The addition of light in small spaces, whether the awning window is open or shut.
- Being able to clear stagnant air inside a room, such as in a secondary kitchen or laundry room.
Andersen Awning Window Installation Options
If you’re hoping to have Andersen awning windows installed in your Oakland or Macomb County home, you can choose from several high-quality options through Rochester-based DeYonker Window & Door.
400 Series: The Best Seller
The 400 series windows feature vinyl exteriors that offer powerful resistance against water damage. They are available in natural pine, prefinished white, dark bronze, or black interiors. The windows crank open from the bottom and can be designed with a modern or traditional look.
They can be up to 6 feet wide and 3 feet high, and multiple hardware options and grille patterns allow homeowners to personalize the look to match the design of the home.

The A-Series awning windows offer the greatest weather resistance. The triple-pane glass provides outstanding energy efficiency, and the standard sizes are 6×4 feet. Sizes can be customized as well.
E-Series Awning & Push-Out Awning Windows: The Most Customizable Options
The E-Series windows can be made to order to virtually any size, color, wood style, or finish. They also offer VeriLock wireless security sensors. The push-out awning windows can open to 60 degrees and offer wood-veneered insect screens.
