Why Choose Awning Windows?

Both stylish and practical, awning windows stand up to a range of weather conditions and look great while doing so.

Locals know that Canberra nights (particularly in winter) can be freezing. However, Canberra also experienced the hottest summer daytime temperatures on record in recent year, so it’s important to have a house that caters for all seasons.

That’s why a double-glazed awning window is the perfect fit for the changeable Canberra climate, as it can open up to provide air-flow when it’s warm a and seal in heat in the evening or during cold snaps.

All awning windows from New World Windows are fitted with compression seals, making them water tight when closed. The locking system provides security and protection against the elements.

A variation on the casement (hinged) window, awning windows are popular in European countries that experience cold winters and warm summers for this very reason. As they open outwards, they are also perfect for keeping out the rain while allowing fresh air into your home.

Awning windows can make a romantic statement when sitting above a desk or reading nook in your home’s second or third floor, particularly for houses with great views. It’s also possible for them to blend into the background, sitting unobtrusively around larger windows or doors in your house.

A versatile style that looks great in homes with a ‘modern’ aesthetic as well as traditional houses, awning windows are what you make them. If you’re considering awning windows but don’t think the style will work with your particular home’s layout, keep in mind that here at New World Windows, we are also fully licensed and insured to build. This means we can execute any structural changes you may need to introduce your dream windows and make your home a light-filled, cosy and well-ventilated space.

At New World Windows, we oversee every aspect of the job from initial consult to final handover. You will deal with only one representative from start to finish. This process provides you with:

  • A solid initial quote, eliminating cost blowouts
  • Full accountability for every aspect of your job
  • A truly personalised experience
  • The best possible outcome for your project


  • What is the time line for the project?

    Once ordered, the windows themselves will take anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks to be manufactured depending on work loads of the factories and peak seasons.

    Every installation is different, timelines depend on the style of construction of your home and the style of existing windows you have but generally, we aim for 4 to 6 windows a day.

    As a rule, we will only commence work in a room that we intend to complete the installation of on the same day. We find that this is a better experience for the homeowner as it contains the elements and building work to one portion of your house at a time.

  • What is the total budget?

    Because the initial and final measurements are done by the installers we can give you a fixed and firm quote. There are absolutely no hidden variation extras or costs, the amount on the quote and contract will never change.

  • How is the project initiated?

    Once the window frames and glass are delivered to site, our installers carefully check that everything has made it to site in 100% perfect condition. We then proceed with the installation room by room ensuring the build process has as little impact on the day to day running of your household as possible.
