Do you need new replacement windows for your home? Whether you’re doing a complete exterior remodel or just want to replace your old, drafty windows, bay windows are a great choice, especially if you’re looking to enhance the exterior of your home.
Typically, bay windows are picture, or fixed-pane, windows with two or more operating windows on either side, called flanker windows—usually double-hung or casement windows are used. The flanker windows are installed at 30, 45 or 90 degree angles, and the whole structure is projected out from the exterior of your home, forming a recess on the inside.
Bay windows offer a number of benefits—they:
Can be energy-efficient: Picture windows and casement windows, which are often used for bay windows, are very energy-efficient and can help you reduce your heating and cooling costs.
Add architectural character to homes: Bay windows are one of the most architecturally unique windows on the market! They can add distinct beauty and character to your home’s exterior.
Enhance your home’s interior: In addition to enhancing your home’s exterior, bay windows also make a difference on the inside. The interior recess formed by the protruding exterior design can be used for anything, from a cushioned window seat or a plant display!
Provide great views: Do you want a window that offers expansive views and highlights your home’s landscaping? Bay windows are great for this.
Can brighten dim rooms: Bay windows are big and, therefore, let in a lot of natural light. They can make any room brighter and seem more airy and spacious.
Can help boost curb appeal and value: Because of their architectural character, bay windows can help increase your home’s curb appeal and marketing value. This can be especially beneficial if you’re moving in a few years and want to up the resale value of your house.
