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 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 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.
