Basement windows often come in three different types: hopper windows, slider windows, and awning windows. Additionally, basement window installation may come with the installation of a specialty window well or window bubble.
Hopper windows are the most common window used for basement windows. Hopper window hinge to the bottom of the window frame and open on a horizontal axis. Basement hoppers are installed to open by tilting the sash inward from the top. For this reason, a basement hopper window screen is installed on the outside of the window frame. Basement hopper windows are usually the most affordable type of basement window and offer the widest range of options in sizes.
Basement slider (or glider) windows are designed to open and close by sliding the sash to the side. These are well-suited for larger windows as well as areas with less room for a sash to swing inwards. The screen on a slider basement window may be either on the inside or on the outside of the window frame. Slider windows are often more affordable than the awning basement windows.
Basement awning windows are usually offered in the most contemporary style and can come with many more design features than hopper or slider basement windows. Like the hopper, basement awning windows open on a horizontal axis. However, they are hinged to the top of the window frame and open by swinging from the bottom outwards. Since this window tilts outward at an angle, it can still be opened for ventilation in inclement New England weather. The window screen of a basement awning window is usually installed on the inside of the window frame.
Basement window wells are structures that extend outward from basement windows. They can serve as an emergency escape route that allows for safe exit in the event of an emergency. Basement window wells are often necessary to comply with building codes that require sleeping quarters or other livable spaces to have an escape window. Additionally, the well allows more natural daylight into the basement.
A basement window bubble is a dome-shaped, plastic or vinyl cover designed to fit over the window well. Also known as window well covers, these help insulate the window well and keep it shielded from dirt, animals, plant debris, and the elements. Window bubbles also help prevent potentially dangerous falls from above.
