What is Name or word for the edges in the top of windows outside the building/house which are marked in the pictures? In most buildings/houses which is big where a person can stand or even sit. Not I’m not referring cornice, balcony or porch.
I just found, in India we call this slab. Does any agree with this word?
This used to be called a pentice (really the old spelling and pronunciation of penthouse) or a pent(ice) roof , but it appears that this term is no longer so widely known or used as it once was.
On Google I find many architects and builders calling it simply an overhang or a window overhang; and that is probably a better term anyway, since a pentice should be a sloping roof, like a fabric awning.
You are not alone in finding a name hard to track down: here is a question about it at *doityourself.com
