Bay Replacement Windows
Combining moveable and fixed panes of glass, bay or bow windows form an arc that extends past the building’s walls. Protruding from the exterior of a house, bay and bow windows allow more light and room within. Furthermore, they allow for more ventilation and natural light into the area, creating the impression of more space and depth.
At Leap Windows & Doors, we install high-quality bay windows that do more than just look beautiful—they also offer the impressive energy efficiency and security you need to feel confident in your investment.
What is a Bay Window?
A bay window consists of three windows: the outside two can open and close, while the center one is fixed. Different from a bow window, these have sharper corners. This is why bay windows are more popular in modern and transitional architecture.
In contrast, bow windows are a curved arrangement of four or more windows. When possible, windows are standardized in size and shape. Bow windows are wider than bay windows and require at least 80 inches of space in an exterior wall or corner. These panes of glass are commonly found in Victorian and older-style dwellings.
Bow windows, box bay windows, and oriel windows are all variations on the bay window theme, and the many names for bow windows include “compass windows,” “curved windows,” and “eagle’s nest windows.”
