Benefits of bow windows


Extra light

Larger windows allow more light to enter the room which means that you can enjoy natural light rather than artificial light in that room. Not only is this better for your mood and well-being but it's also great for your electric bill! The less you have to use your home lighting, the more you will save! You can even position your bow window in such a way that you get light from more than one angle as the sun moves. Take note of the positioning of your home and ask an expert if you are unsure about maximizing natural light.

 

More space

Bow windows don't just give the illusion of more space, they actually add some extra space to the room! From a visual aspect alone, the size of these windows helps give you that feeling of more space since you are almost joining the outdoors with the indoors. The extra space can also be used for a number of purposes and storage which can really help ease that clutter.

 

Versatile

As briefly mentioned above, your bow window is extremely versatile and can be used to display or store a number of things. For example, you can create a comfy reading corner by installing a window seat with a nearby bookcase. Under your window seat, you can store various items like blankets, cushions, and so on. So you are using your bow window to serve two purposes! Alternatively, if you are looking for a great home for your piano, your bow window will be perfect! It keeps your piano accessible while out of the way.

 

Greater curb appeal

Bow windows are not only great for the interior of your home. They can also make your home look even more attractive from the outside. Curb appeal is a great selling point for any home which is what makes bow windows such a significant investment. Even if you are not planning on selling your home anytime soon, you will still benefit later from making this upgrade. Enjoy the perks of a bow window while you live in your home and let it boost your property value when the time comes to sell.

 

Given the size and nature of bow windows, it's important to make sure that you ask your window manufacturer about professional installation. Not only does each window need to be installed properly, but they also need to line up to create the right visual effect. In addition, a professional team will most certainly get the job done far quicker than if you were to do the job yourself.

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.

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!
