Bay & Bow Windows in Milwaukee
Bay & bow windows are an elegant way to add drama and value to your home in the Milwaukee and Waukesha area. Choose from wood or vinyl, three to five panels, and many other options to customize the window to your home and unique taste. Most homeowners enjoy the abundant amount of natural light that comes through these large replacement windows, as they can truly open up a room to make it feel larger.
The Planning of Bay & Bow Windows
Bay & bow windows take a high level of planning and expertise to execute successfully. There are several questions to ask when replacing bay or bow window, such as:
- Is there an overhang above or does a custom roof need to be constructed?
- How far would you like the unit to project to the exterior of your home?
- What is the existing thickness of your wall — critical for proper unit sizing.
- Would you prefer hung or casement venting units for your bay or bow windows?
The average carpenter may not be able to ensure a leak-free installation of your window. It requires an experienced professional window installer to get the job done right.
Once a qualified installer is chosen, operator quantity and type should be determined. Price will generally rise as the size and number of panels goes up. A three panel bay is generally the least expensive, with four and five panel bows the most costly. A bay window has the option to use double hung units as opposed to casements, but for long term performance casements are preferred.
Bay and bow windows are generally offered in the same colors and options as the other operator choices in a given product line, including triple pane glass, interior and exterior colors, etc. Keep in mind that a window that will project outward into the elements will be more prone to energy loss and condensation, so insulated head and seat boards along with triple pane glass can be worthwhile.
