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.

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.

Your Awning Windows and The Options for Colours & Finishes

Big City Windows offers three exciting choices for colours and finishes. Choose the one that you like best for those awing windows in Ottawa and you'll love them for decades.

Start with our basic paint options. We offer a total of 18 colours to choose from. All of our paints are formulated to be ecologically safe for the environment. They resist fading, cracking, and other problems you might find with lesser paints.

If you like laminate, you'll love our pre-finished woodgrain interior laminate. Made using a state of the art method developed in Europe, the laminate finish adheres securely to a vinyl coating. The result is a strong cherry laminate that will not fade, chip, blister, or peel.

Speaking of vinyl coatings, check out our Capstock colour product. The colour is extruded right along with the substrate uPVC used in the production process. Expect the vibrant colours to remain true for years. You'll also not have to worry about scratching or a change in the gloss level for a long time.

Accessorizing With Grilles & Divided Lites

Big City Windows is well-known for the quality of our window accessories. That includes grilles and divided light options. You can go with our basic interior grille that' found in the layers of glass forming the panes. Choose from a variety of colours, styles, and sizes to find the perfect match for your home.

You can also choose our Simulated Divided Lite (SDL) option. Rather than in the glass, the grille is applied to the exterior. The result is a grille that has all the visual appeal of traditional grilles that were created and installed using historical methods. In terms of authenticity, it would be hard to tell the difference between SDL and traditional grilles.

Remember that the glass you choose can be beveled, grooved, leaded or tinted to your specifications. Caming options for your new windows also include brass or zinc finishes as well as a patina that's encased between the glass layers.

Never second guess where to buy awning windows. The only real choice is Big City Windows. Call us today and let's get started on designing the perfect windows for your home. From our standard designs to custom fitting and sizing, we will ensure you are happy with those new windows and will enjoy them for years to come.
