Bow Replacement Windows
What’s the difference between a bow window and a bay window? We get that question a lot. A bow window has four or more units joined at equal angles to form a gentle curve, while a bay window is a three-sided installation with three or more windows. Both configurations add the benefits of light, space and a panoramic view to any room. Bow windows can add an element of graceful spaciousness whether used in the shallow arc contour of a window seat or to open up sweeping views in a round room addition. You can choose from single-hung, double-hung or casement styles with any combination of fixed and venting windows.
A bow window could be the perfect solution for a room that needs an update, like a bedroom, family room or kitchen. A classic four-window bow can add visual interest and extra space with a slim exterior profile. With so many frame styles, glazing options and window configurations to choose from, you’re sure to find the right bow window for your home.
Bow windows are available in many interior and exterior materials and finishes, with lots of options for lites, grilles, glass and hardware so you can have exactly the look you want. Materials include combinations of wood, aluminum clad, vinyl, and fiberglass. Exterior finishes include stain or paint for wood and fiberglass, or primed, powder coated or anodized finishes for aluminum-clad exteriors. There are numerous glass options to choose from, lites can be authentic divided or simulated divided, and optional grilles come in many styles.
A bow window may be the perfect accent for your home. If you’d like help in choosing the right one, contact us for a free consultation or stop by the Chapman Windows Doors & Siding showroom.
