Bay and Bow windows are striking, and also strikingly similar. Both window installations project outward and feature multiple windows. If you are thinking it might be time to add one of these beautiful installations to your home, here are the pros and cons to consider to help you make the right decision.
These window units are comprised of three windows arranged as a single system that projects outward. The center window is generally much larger than the other two flanking windows. All three can be picture windows. Most often, though, the center window is a large picture window and the side windows are operable, either casement windows Oak Park, CA or double hung windows. The angular arrangement of these windows works well for more modern homes.
These are made up of four to six windows arranged in a gentle, protruding arch shape. Like the bay window, these add more cubic feet to a room and make it feel larger. The elegant curve of these windows works best for Victorian style architecture. This type of installation is unique because it can wrap around building corners and turrets, giving you a wide view out of both sides of your home.
Why Choose Vinyl?
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is a construction level material with multiple purposes. Because it is a polymer, different additives combine to make each material unique. Most vinyl used for windows contains organic tin and titanium dioxide, along with other fillers, plasticizers, and pigments. These “ingredients” improve strength, energy efficiency, and prevent warping and fading. These are important features to have in Agoura Hills, CA.
