Awning Windows

Awning windows provide functionality, yet they must also blend in flawlessly as a component of the home's overall architecture. Awning windows allow the window sash to swing out and upwards and are typically hinged at the top. Our Awning windows open up to 45 degrees from the bottom letting air circulate freely, while providing a unique protective shield to keep rain out and come with an easily removable screen.

What Awning Windows Will Do For You And Your Home

When you choose to invest in awning windows in Ottawa, a number of advantages will come your way. Here are some of the ways that installing this window design throughout your home will benefit you today and in the years to come.

Enhancing Curb Appeal

One of the things you'll notice about this window style is that it adds a new touch to the look of your home. There's something about windows that are hinged along the top and swing out that help to boost the curb appeal of just about any home design. If you've lived with a different design for years, you'll appreciate how having these windows opened slightly makes a big difference in how welcoming your home looks from the street.

A Nice Breeze Even When It's Raining

If you like the sound of the rain but don't care for having to close all your windows during a downpour, awning windows in Ottawa are an excellent choice. It's easy enough to open the windows just enough to create a nice flow of air through the house and still keep the rain from entering through the open space. Think of what that means in terms of listening to the soothing sounds of the rain and still getting to enjoy the breeze.

Privacy is Simple

If you prefer some privacy, it's easy enough to go with frosted or tinted glass for your new windows. Even if you choose tinted windows, it's still possible to swing the bottom of the window outward slightly and enjoy some natural light and air. Along with providing the privacy you seek, tinted or frosted windows add another decorate element inside and outside.

Capstock Colour Options

Our Capstock colour is co-extruded along with our substrate uPVC profile. The unique Capstock material is specially formulated for exceptional weatherability and durability with outstanding colour retention, scratch resistance and gloss control year after year.

Woodgrain Interior Laminate (pre-finished)

Big City uses a technological advancement from Europe that allows a wood grain laminate finish to be bonded to the vinyl. The result is a permanent finish that bonds with the vinyl and is heat reflective and will not peel, blister, fade or chip. Available in Cherry laminate on this product.

We offer 18 water-based, environmentally friendly exterior paint colour choices that are both weather and fade-resistant.

The Premium Hardware is available with 8 finish options to fully customize your window selections.



Solar Solutions Glazing Options

Big City's Solar Solutions glass options provide you with several choices to maximize your energy savings. All our products meet or exceed the Energy Star requirements in Canada. The insulating values improve even further when we apply our gas into the sealed units. The gas is applied right at the time of sealing the unit and is a one of a kind system that allows us to certify the gas content in each and every unit. Our non-conductive Super Spacer (S.S.) also helps to keep the cold or hot from transferring to the interior helping reduce condensation build up in winter.

From blistering heat to frigid cold, your windows and doors could expose you to higher energy costs and damaging UV exposure. Inefficient windows and doors can add 30 to 40% to your yearly heating and cooling costs. Our Solar Solutions glass options allow you to customize the performance of your windows and doors as well as providing safety, security and reduced sound transmission. There are also two tints available for your glass (Bronze, Blue).


Big City has upgraded our glass with the latest technology, so when the weather turns frigid, LoE-180™ glass is the perfect cold remedy. It provides excellent insulating capability, blocking heat loss to the outside and reflecting heat back into the room plus it allows the winter sun's heat to pass into the home. The dramatic improvement in comfort from windows with warm glass surfaces also means the relative humidity of the indoor air can be controlled and maintained properly. The better insulated the window glass, the warmer your room will be.

Neat Naturally Clean Glass

Big City introduces Neat® naturally clean glass. It harnesses the sun's UV rays to loosen dirt so water can rinse it away, leaving windows virtually spotless. Your windows will stay cleaner longer and will clean easier.

Homeowners and builders will enjoy the effects that a little sun, rain and Neat glass brings to windows. Not only that, because Neat is applied to Big City's LoE® 180 coated glazings, homes stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

Grilles & Divided Lites

Big City Offers a full selection of Grilles and Divided Lite Options

Grilles and divided light options can add a whole new dimension to your homes appearance. Big City can create that unique architectural element by customizing either your internal or external grille selections. Custom grilles can be conveniently located between the glass for easy maintenance or for a more traditional look, exterior Simulated Divided Lite (SDL) options are available.

Simulated Divided Lites (SDL)

SDL grilles will provide the traditional look of hand crafted windows while maintaining a single sealed glass unit. The grilles are applied on the outside of the glass, creating the craftsman look. You can choose from various sizes, patterns and colour options, all designed to enhance the unique style of your home.

Interior Grilles

Totally maintenance free, these grilles are inside the insulated glass. The available profiles, colours and styles can give you a perfect way to add an extra level of decorative detail and styling. They are also available in a variety of colour options to match your window colour choice.

Our decorative panels, made up of leaded, beveled, grooved or tinted glass provide the ultimate architectural look. Caming options include brass, zinc or patina encased between two panes of glass.
