About the Harvey Classic Vinyl Basement Hopper Window

Basement egress or "hopper" windows are almost always used in basements and open inwards from the top. They work this way to avoid accidental damage from the outside and to keep water out.

The Harvey Classic vinyl hopper window is custom made, delivers excellent performance and offers a variety of styles, colors and options to meet your needs. As one of a very select group of Harvey Elite Dealers, we are able to provide enhanced benefits including free lifetime glass breakage coverage, a more affordable triple pane option, and an upgraded service warranty option.

Pros and Cons: Harvey Basement Window

  • Hopper windows, like casement windows and awning windows press against the frame when closed and generally create a more effective seal. That makes them energy-efficient in any climate.
  • Though hopper windows aren’t very difficult to get open, they simply aren’t very big in most instances. That means that they aren’t a security risk like some taller windows.
  • Hopper windows are excellent at reducing humidity in areas of your home like basements and bathrooms. Even though the windows are small in size, they work very well for ventilation.

  • Since hopper windows open up inwards from the bottom, they can allow water to enter into the home if left open during the rain.
  • It can be difficult to cover up hopper windows with blinds or a window treatments due to the way they open and close. This can cause limited privacy for the space and offers visibility into the room from the outside.

Solar heat gain coefficient measures how well a product blocks heat caused by sunlight.

The lower the number, the more it will help reduce the use of air conditioning and energy use. In cold climates, a higher SHGC is desirable to collect heat from sunlight. SHGC typically ranges from 0.25 to 0.80.
