When planning a window replacement, bow and bay windows are usually the top choices for homeowners. These types of windows add beauty and curb appeal to your home. They are attractive and help natural light to flood into your room.
There may be different window types in the market, but only a few suit your home aesthetics. If you have large spaces for your window renovation either bow or bay windows are perfect for your home.
Window installation expert Renewal by Andersen® of Phoenix offers a wide selection of expertly crafted including the bow and bay windows. If this is your first time thinking which of the two window styles are worth it for your window replacement, we discuss them in this post to help you choose.
A bow window usually has four or five and usually extends beyond the exterior wall. It has more glass area because of a curve in the corners. A bay window has three openings, available in angled projections. It is square, while some triangular bays are made up of just two windows.
A bow window is more expensive than a flat window with a similar opening. Because it is not a single window, it requires more work and window parts. A bay window is cheaper. However, the cost of these two usually depends on the installation.
It is harder to install a bow window due to its larger size and weight. DIY is not recommended for bow or bay window replacement or installation. Hire a professional contractor to make sure the work is efficiently done.
Both bow and bay windows make way for natural light into your room. However, a bow window allows more light and provides a wider view of the outdoors. Both windows are perfect for your living room, kitchen, or dining room where you want to direct more sunlight.
Whether you’re getting a boy or bay window, you always need to know the difference between these two window styles. Your window contractor inspects your home and provides you with a solution if what window type is applicable to your home. You can also speak to your contractor if you have any goals for your windows. Do not only look after the style, but also the cost, and what’s necessary for your home.
