Bay and Bow Windows from NorthShield Windows and Doors


When you're thinking about renovating your home for the first time it can be hard to know what to look for. If you haven't spent much time thinking about the construction of houses, all the terms can be terribly confusing. Luckily, NorthShield Windows and Doors is here to help.

 

You could give us a call right now at 204-272-3725 and set up an appointment to get your free estimate, but first, start by reading on to learn about the difference between bay windows and bow windows.

 

Bay Windows

 

Bay windows typically consist of three windows of different sizes. The centre window is generally larger than the two side windows, which are angled from the wall at 30 or 40 degree angles. The side windows are usually double hung—so they open from the bottom—allowing them to provide excellent ventilation.

 

Bow Windows

 

Bow windows consist of three to six window panes. These are usually all the same size and installed so they appear to curve into one another. Their most noticeable difference from bay windows at first glance is that bay windows have harder angles. Bow windows can be single hung, double hung or hung in casements—whatever you decide works for you. A NorthShield Windows and Doors professional will be able to tell you what will work best in your space.

 

What These Windows Do For Your Home

 

Bay and bow windows both add architectural insterest to your home. Think about the houses you remember in movies, the bedrooms. How many had a bay or bow window? Install a seat and your bay or bow window becomes the perfect spot for light afternoon reading.

 

Bay and bow windows also significantly increase the worth of your home. These windows are more than just pretty panes of glass organized in an unusual way—they're a solid investment towards increasing your quality of life and your net worth. With a professional installation from NorthShield Windows and Doors, these windows could make a huge difference when it someday comes time to sell your home.

Alex and the team at north shield were amazing. Great customer service, along with a great team of installers. North shield replaced my 2 front living room windows in 1 day. They even took away my awning! Highly recommended

Jim gave us a great price, and I was also very happy with the installation team. Great workmanship, product, hey we’re friendly and clean. I am left feeling good about the company we chose to do our windows. I would certainly not hesitate in recommending them.

Andy and his crew installed the windows as agreed and were extremely pleasant. The cleanup was exceptional. They arrived on time. I would recommend North Shield to anyone looking for new windows. The service was incredible, The pricing was very good. The sales person Jim Scammel was very informative and knowledgeable. We had quotes from five (5) companies and feel good with our decision. The overall product was exceptional, but Andy was the STAR!!!! We did 17 windows and a door, so this was an important decision to our family.

We love our new windows. It was a challenging job for the guys as we are on the second floor of a condo but they were very professional and up to the task. Windows look great inside and out.

We had our windows installed last summer and absolutely love them - especially the large kitchen window. Our sales rep Jim S. was terrific and knowledgeable. The installers did a professional, skilled job of installing our windows. And the windows themselves are high quality, easy to open and easy to clean - as well as reasonably priced. We are very happy with our entire experience with this company and highly recommend them. Thank you!
