Four Reasons Why Bay Windows Are Irresistible


The charm and style of bay windows are favoured by homeowners and always prove to be a worthwhile investment. Some of the most significant reasons for the on-going success and popularity of bay windows include:

 

Versatility

Bay windows suit any part of your property. They can be installed in living rooms, bedrooms, dining rooms, and especially in the kitchen. There are various sizes and shapes available which mean that homeowners can choose the design that best suits their needs, budget, and style.

 Adding a bay window can also help you get creative with your floor space! You can use this extra space to add: a reading nook, a special spot for your piano, the perfect spot to take an afternoon nap, or even extra storage space. The possibilities are endless.

 

Air and Light

Large windows make it much easier to air out your home quickly and efficiently. Even if you don't keep your windows open all day, that fresh morning breeze or crisp night air is just what every home needs to ensure that the air inside does not become stale or stagnant. During the winter months, larger windows allow for fast ventilation when you need it most.

The size of these windows also mean that your home will welcome that much more natural light. Natural light can be a great way for saving on your hydro bills. Natural light has a charm and warmth that can’t be matched by any form of artificial light.

 

Your Property’s Value

Style and versatility will always increase the value of your home. And just like you, your property is totally unique, featuring it’s own personal style. Creative and unique features like bay windows can help potential buyers imagine themselves living in your home and enjoying its one-of-a-kind comforts. There are so many other ways that bay window’s are able to increase the value of your home, including the expansion of your ceiling. A bay window gives the illusion of a wider, higher ceiling. This means your bay window is helping to emphasize the height of the room; a feature that holds significant weight with homebuyers. Since bay windows help expand your living space, you can also be sure that this extra interior space will help attract buyers since your home will be that much more spacious.

 

Style & Theme

For homeowners looking to emphasize the details and style of their Victorian or Craftsman style properties, bay windows are the perfect authentic accent-pieces. Once your bay windows have been installed, you need only add the proper accessories (like traditional shutters or gables) to make sure that your home’s exterior holds true to it’s style or theme. Bay windows don't only influence the style of your home, they also enhance the personality already present. They will give your home added curb appeal, and they will make your home particularly attractive to all those romantic home buyers out there!

 

These are just some of the top reasons why homeowners should consider installing bay windows. We’re confident that once you experience the benefits of your first bay window installation, you'll want one in every room of your house! At NorthShield Windows and Doors, our bay windows come with a lifetime warranty, LoE Glass and are available in various colours.

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!
