Basement Hopper Windows Guide
Basement windows, also known as hopper windows, are most commonly installed in basements, as the name suggests, and swing open from a hinge on the bottom of the frame. This window style is important for bringing light and fresh air into a space of your home where this is particularly difficult to achieve. Below you’ll find information about how basement hopper windows operate, pricing, pros and cons, and more.
About Basement Hopper Windows
Hopper windows tilt down and can swing either into or out of the house. The downward tilt prevents dirt and dust from falling into your home. They are similar in design to awning windows but are hinged on the bottom to expedite airflow into rooms on the basement level. Hopper windows, as seen from the outside, are found near the foundation of the house due to their interior location near the top of basement walls. They can also be found above glass doors in older homes.
How to Operate Basement Hopper Windows
Hopper windows can open using the commonly employed crank mechanism or using a hinge, which makes them extremely easy to operate. The crank is controlled by using a fold down handle that glides the window open and closed.
