What are bay & bow windows?
Often times customers are confused about the differences between a bow window and a bay window, and rightfully so, they are very similar. Similarly, both windows will project out from your home, creating extra space to the interior of your house.
However, when noting their differences, bay windows typically have a picture window in the middle, with operable side windows; Bow windows are typically four or more windows joined together – creating a curve, where all the windows may have the ability to open in some way.
Both Bay and Bow windows may utilize either single-hung, double-hung, or casement windows as part of their construction. The mullion posts between the windows in the unit are not only structural, but they are filled with energy efficient die-cut EPS foam which creates energy efficiency by keeping temperatures from transferring through the window.
Additional Bay Window and Bow Window features:
- Choice of windows that serve as flankers – double hung, casement, or picture windows
- Strong 9-Ply hardwood head and seat construction
- Energy efficient 1″ dual pane insulated glass units
- Choice of Birch or Oak hardwood
