In respect to this, how do I open the hopper on Windows?
Awning windows hinge at the top and push outward to open. When the window is open the glass pane creates a little roof over the opening. Hopper windows are similar, except they hinge at the bottom and can push outward or pull inward to open.
Additionally, can you install a hopper window upside down? The other issue is the these hopper windows open from the TOP (ours open from the bottom) and this makes it even harder. The installer can't install them upside down because that would defeat some of the drainage principles of the window.
Just so, what do you call a window that opens upward?
A casement is a window that is attached to its frame by one or more hinges at the side. Casement windows are often held open using a casement stay. Windows hinged at the top are referred to as awning windows, and ones hinged at the bottom are called hoppers.
