Tips for Customizing a Bay Window

Bay windows are made up of three to four window panels that push outward in a linear pattern with sharp lines. With them, you’ll get a more expansive outdoor view, make your home more appealing and even increase energy savings. This window style is ideal for common spaces in the house like living and dining rooms.Tips for Customizing a Bay Window

But it’s important to customize your bay window. Here’s how.

Choosing a Size

Bay windows are available in various sizes to fit any opening. The sizes usually range in width from 3 feet 6 inches to 10 feet 6 inches and in height from 3 feet to 6 feet 6 inches. Installing a bay window that’s the same size or smaller than your old windows will cost you less than choosing bigger ones. However, larger windows will allow more natural light into your home and have more visual impact in both your interior and exterior.

The Best Material

Windows are usually made of wood and vinyl. However, here at Renewal by Andersen®, our windows feature Fibrex® material frames and sashes. This unique material has the beauty of wood and is twice as strong as vinyl. It also insulates better than vinyl or pine window frames. You can make the most of these benefits by hiring a certified windows installer.

Type of Sash

You can go for either casement or double-hung windows for the sash of your bay. In most cases, the bay sash is the same as the other windows in the house though you don’t have to make them the same. Casement sash is ideal for taller, narrower bays while double-hung sash looks great on shorter units.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
