What are bay and bow windows?
Bay and bow windows are very similar in the sense that they both protrude from the exterior of the house. They are made up of more than two panels and offer you more room inside the room for a window seat, shelves, or storage.
However, there are also some distinct differences between bay and bow windows, which we’ll detail below.
Bay windows usually made up of three panels; however, they can adopt up to five panels. The middle panel is the largest and the two smaller panels sit either side and attach to the window frame. The angles that the smaller panels are fixed onto the windows are fixed and cannot be adjusted. Bay windows are very popular in both modern and historic houses alike.
Bow windows are often larger than bay windows and they use more panels to create a curved look rather than a sharp structure, creating a bowed shape. They’ll often feature 4 to 6 panels, but there is the option to opt for even more panels. The possibilities are endless!
Bow windows are longer than bay windows, but their width is less substantial. This means that bow windows won’t reach away from the exterior of your building as much as bay windows will. Victorian-style houses greatly benefit from bow windows, but they’re also beginning to become popular in the modern scene.
How much does bay and bow windows cost?
Unfortunately, we have no way of determining exactly how much your bay and bow windows are going to cost. However, we’ve collated some of our average prices to give you some insight into the overall cost that you might be looking at.
Bay and bow windows are made up of more than one panel of glass and therefore cost more than flat windows do. They also often need to be custom made to your specifications, which adds more labor charges to the bill.
Bay windows made from uPVC are often priced starting at $1,000 for a 3-panel model, around $1,500 for a 4-panel window, and upwards of $2,000 for a 5-panel bay window. On the other hand, uPVC bow windows are slightly more expensive and start at $1,500 for a 5-panel 3500 x 3500 window, around $2,000 for a 5-panel 3500 x 4000 model, and can reach prices of up to $3,000 for a 5-panel 4000 x 4000 bow window.
