A new bay or bow window will immediately become the focal point of any room and has the ability to transform the design and ambiance of your home from both the inside and out.

Bay windows typically consist of one large picture window in the center with a casement or double-hung window on each side to form one large curved window unit. It is an attractive window design that bumps outward from the wall, allowing for expanded views.

Bow windows usually consist of a series of four or more connected windows creating a rounded bump out from your home. Each window in the unit is the same size and style and can either be operational or stationary. Bow windows are designed to create additional space as they project outward and provide a greater view of the outdoors.

Bay and Bow Window Replacement FAQs

Do bay and bow windows need a roof?2021-11-17T20:48:31+00:00

Bay and bow windows both protrude outwards from the wall of your home, this means they will need to have a covering. In many cases, both window types are installed under overhanging eaves, but if this is not possible a small roof is required to be built across the top of these window styles.

What’s the difference between bay and bow windows?2021-11-17T20:46:44+00:00

When looking at both a bay window and a bow window it is common to think they are the same type of window. After all they both consist of multiple sections and protrude outward from your home providing better views, increasing space and allowing for more light to enter. However, there are several main differences:

  • A bay window consists of 3 window panes, a center, larger picture window and either two fixed or vented windows on either side. A bow window typically has 4 to 5 equal window panes.
  • Bay windows have more angular lines as the 3 window units connect at a 30-degree angle or higher. Bow windows are more rounded, as their window panes connect at a 10-degree angle. 
  • Bay windows protrude further outward than bow windows, adding slightly more interior space.
  • Bow windows allow for more natural light to enter a home as they have more windows and lower angles.
  • Bow windows can fill a wider opening than bay windows as you can add additional window panes.
What are the benefits of installing bay and bow windows for your home?2021-11-17T20:47:42+00:00

here are several key benefits associated with installing a bay or bow window in your home.

1.Added Space: Due to the fact that both bay and bow windows protrude outward, they add a small amount of additional space to your home, but they create the feeling or illusion of a much wider open space within your home. Additionally, a seat board can be added to the edge of a bow or bay window increasing your seating capacity and creating a great space for reading a book or just enjoying the views.

2.Additional Natural Light: Both bay and bow windows will allow more natural light to enter your home when compared to a standard flat window, such as a picture window because they bump out from your home and allow light to enter from different angles.

3.Improved Views: The same way that the curved, protruding windows allow for more light to enter your home, they also provide wider views of the outdoors. With either a bay or bow window you will be able to see areas of your yard that would not have been seen through a flat window as you can look through varying angles.

4.Increased Curb Appeal: Both window styles have the ability to change the design and feel of your home. Added character and aesthetic appeal are a positive by-product of installing a bay or bow window.

5.Boosted Home Value: Like most home improvement projects, not only do you benefit from improved aesthetics or convenience, you also get a return on your investment with an increase in your property value. Installing a new bay or bow window will increase your home’s value.

When should you use bay and bow windows?2021-11-17T20:47:59+00:00

Bay and bow windows can be used in any room with a larger window opening, however they are typically used in larger rooms such as living rooms, dining areas, kitchens and bedrooms. They are perfect for areas of your home where you want to increase space, expand the view, bring in more natural light, or want additional ventilation. Both windows can also be used to add character to your home’s exterior and increase curb appeal.

CTEWS redid the siding, replaced rotten plywood, rotten decking, all the trim, new windows & painted everything. All for a very fair price! Best of all though, was the service.

Great communication and his guys went above and beyond in purchasing new wood trim (which they painted) to frame around the window. They have my appreciation and strong recommendation.

Paul Hickernell

Great overall service and quality windows, highly recommend. This is an owner/operator business, so you’re not dealing with a whole bunch of corporate nonsense.
