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.

Love our new windows and doors. We had all our windows replaced on the main floor, side door and front door, as well as the storm doors. The installation team was great. They removed the existing awning and were really great at cleaning up after the work. There were a couple of issues after the install, but the after sales service team of Alex and Walter were able to resolve it promptly. Great advice from Walter about keeping the humidity inside the house to maintain the windows, and also how to operate them properly. And thanks very much Alex and team for buying the doorbell and installing it for us, as well as fixing the bottom part of the door frames to cover holes on the flooring. Appreciate all your hard work and for going the extra mile. Will definitely recommend your company to friends, neighbors and family.

NorthShield did an excellent job with our house. They were the lowest price our of 4 companies I contacted for quotes. The windows look beautiful, and the molding is very well done. The installation was very quick, they replaced all of the windows in our house in about 4 hours. They cleaned up everything completely afterwards inside and outside, you can't even tell they were here! Very professional, very high quality installation, materials and work. I would highkly recommend them.

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.
