Bay Window Replacement
A standard bay window is a combination of three windows in one construction. We commonly offer one large picture window in the center and two smaller angled windows on the end lites. The end lites are typically double hung or casement style windows, which project outwards. This combination adds a perception of depth to any room.
The large picture window allow more natural daylight while the angled end lites allow efficient ventilation into the house. For stability, all these windows are framed together and supported at the bottom, from the exterior side of the window. In addition, the projected bay window will be supported by a custom built roof or tied into your existing soffits. It’s very important to not have any projected window exceed the width of your existing soffit as weather such as rain or snow will build up on top of projected bay window which will cause long term damage.
Bay windows are complex in design and extend beyond your homes walls, which makes for a more costly installation process. However; bay windows add tremendous curb appeal to any home. Although bay windows aren’t for everybody, we can help guide you through different window style options to achieve your dream window.
Advantages of Bay Windows
Unlike most of the other windows which are affixed to the wall, the bay windows stretch out and project out of the walls of the house increasing your view. With a bay window you also allow more light and air into the room. As part of the bay windows, the picture window portion is large and unobstructed and as a result, offers you a wide view outside, thus creating a perception of depth to your room. Location of the bay window is essential in enjoying this benefits.
Enhanced Floor Space
Especially valuable for space tight homes, the bay windows create more shelf space along the base of the window construction. As the windows project outwards, more space is created on the inside making a rather small space seem big. It not uncommon to add at least ten square feet to the initial room size with a single bay window.
Provides a Convenient Seat Board
Depending on the projection of the bay window, you will enjoy an additional space for plants, books, or other interior decorating items to enhance your homes inner beauty.
