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.

Likely a good company for windows, installers seemed competent. However for doors they seemed to have much less experience. My salesman left the company midway through the process and I wasn't informed, and turns out some miscommunication between him and I led to a product I didn't want. The door is nice, just not what I had thought I ordered, and it took about 4 months to get, so I accepted it. The paint also chipped after they left, which leaves a bad feeling (even though that's more of a manufacturer issue than NorthShield issue). I'm not saying these guys are going to be bad for you, but I'm not thrilled with my result. REPLY December 5, 2018: I had called about the paint chip and wrong door options already at the time and was told there was no recourse for me. The paint chip was there when I came home from work after the door was installed, but you provided a picture the installers took before the paint was chipped, so at that time I was told there was no recourse. The wrong options I was told was due to a salesman who took my order having left the company, and there was no paperwork showing my chosen option (no door handle hole to be cut). I will call again tomorrow and update this with the results of that conversation.

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

Very professional workers that despite finding, no vapor barrier and wood rot on our deck, fixed it right and continued to install our very beautiful door and side light without complaint. I would highly recommend Northshield to any friends, neighbors or anyone else. I am a very Happy, Happy Gal with my beautiful new door!

Installation crew showed up on time. Brought coverings and tarps to contain any mess. Installation went smoothly and the guys were very polite and considerate. The old windows and frames were removed and the jobsite was clean when they left. Great work at a good price! Thanks Andy and Serge.

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.
