What You Need to Know Before Getting Bay Windows

Windows are one of the most defining elements of any architectural design and, among the different styles available today, nothing is as unique as the bay window. Bay windows offer large glass areas and additional floor space, making it perfect for a cozy reading nook, extra seating in a small breakfast table or simply more shelving and storage space for living room knick-knacks.

Bay windows are a common sight in traditional Mid Century and classic Victorian-style homes, but newer versions are also available to fit whatever style you might have. However, before you sign off on a bay window installation, here are a few important reminders from our professionals at Renewal By Andersen® of Long Island.

Finalizing Details

If you’re getting a bay window replacement, you’re essentially getting three windows arranged in a curve that will extend past your exterior wall. So first, it’s important to define what your goal is for this installation. Where will you position the window? What purpose will it serve? Will it be a central design feature or will it be part of a set? Discuss your objectives to your window contractor so they can find a way to customize the window to further fit your needs.

Important Factors

Once your objectives are set, it’s time to tackle the nitty-gritty parts of the project. Size, composition, positioning, frame material, as well as glazing options will affect the final outcome (and cost) of your brand-new bay window. The initial consultation is the perfect time for you to talk to your contractor about these important factors before the installation begins.

"I was very impressed with Renewal by Andersen. They showed up in time and we received several follow up phone calls as the installation was being done as well as the sales representative stopping by to check in on the installation. The delivery/ installer was very professional. I would highly recommend Renewal By Andersen."
