where are all the hopper windows?

tobes36June 21, 2013


I have a shed style roof in my living room. Right now I have a bank of 4 picture windows 5' x 1.5' along the high side of the room. I want to replace at least one of them with a awning or hopper type of window so I can ventilate the space. I would prefer a hopper type of window so I can have it screened on the outside. There are a lot of insects where I live.

The window is somewhat protected in that it is under an eave. I've noticed that the big names don't make them (andersen, milgard, marvin).

What are my options? I need one with a pull ring because it is about 12-14' high.

Suggestions? pitfalls?

Commercial aluminum (Traco, Kawneer, Efco) and I do believe most vinyl companies make a hopper as well.

Marvin has a tilt turn which turns into a hopper

I would look consider a slider for that size,and replace the whole bank with one window. It would probally cost less and be more functional.

As stated above, most vinyl companies make hoppers. The Marvin tilt and turns are fabulous windows, just be prepared to take out another mortgage on your home to pay for them.
