What Are Hopper Windows?

hopper window installationWhile similar to awning windows, hopper windows are hinged at the bottom and typically open inward from the top. In contrast, awning windows are hinged at the top and open outward from the bottom. Hopper windows are typically installed in basements to bring more light and ventilation to otherwise dark and stuffy areas.

Pros and Cons of Installing Hopper Windows

There are numerous benefits to bringing this window style into your home. With hoppers, you bring light to darker spaces of your home, and the airtight seal against the window’s weatherstripping makes them extremely energy-efficient. The top latch lock also makes these windows more secure than other window types. They can also open inward or outward, unlike awning windows.

However, hopper windows also come with their own set of challenges every homeowner should consider before installing in a bathroom or a basement. These windows opening outward can trap rainwater, debris, and insects falling down the side of the house because of their V-shaped opening. Inward-opening hopper windows can interfere with drapes and curtains in the home. Additionally, the top latch can be hard to reach and may require a chair or stepladder to access.
