Upgrading Florida old awning windows

I have the old three glass awning type crank widows, and I want to replace them with more efficient windows. My house is a typical 2 bedroom house in Central Florida, with a stucco type exterior and 6-52" H x 49.5" W, and two large windows with two 52 x 49.5" units. Any suggestions for replacement windows and is this a DIY type project?

Welcome to the forums!

Your windows should be mounted to pressure treated wood. You'd unscrew the window frame from the window, you'll probably need to chip out the stucco next to the window frame. Before you start you should measure your current windows and see if you can get any that size. Slightly smaller will work but slightly larger could be challenging.

I'd probably suggest a 2 lite casement. Either XO, OX or both operating right and left.
