Fast Facts about Bow Windows

Shopping for best replacement windows for your home can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to picking a style that aligns with your personal preferences and the build of the house. With many options of window sizes and configurations, reading up on your election will determine the best choice.

How to Tell If Your Home Windows Need Replacement

With high intensity weather, house windows will start to show their wear. You feel breezes, the noises are louder than before, there’s moisture present or you find they need an optic refurbishing. Noticing condensation build-up in the winter months or after a heavy rainfall? This can be a sign the window is weathered, worn and needs replacing. On a hot day or a cold day, place a hand on the window and feel the temperature. If it’s hot to the touch in the summer and freezing in the winter, the pane has been beaten down from the elements and requires some replacing. If you are noticing cracks along the frame the deterioration has taken over, breaks will also cause rot from broken down caulking. Maybe you have decided your home needs an update because your windows remind you too much of your childhood home and not in a good way. Modernize and revamp with new home windows.

Bow Windows

Bow windows allow for a panoramic viewing during all times of the year. Made with 3, 4, 5 or 6 grilles, bow windows give a beautiful design to your home by allowing more light and a natural visibility of the outdoors. Having vinyl rids the need for staining or painting the interior of the window. You can purchase in different colors providing the ultimate look to fit your desire. Reliable windows installed by a reputable contractor come with an anti-moisture penetration system, keeping water away from the inside of your home. Here at Lindus Construction, we have a custom stain shop that allows us to color match windows with the rest of the home’s preexisting woodwork.

Benefits and Disadvantages

Bow windows give off a rounded look to the outside of your home. Changing the design of it will draw attention to your dwelling while providing a gorgeous view. Since bow windows are more uncommon, they raise the upsell price on your home, giving you the upper hand on potential buyers later on. These windows also add more natural lighting and affixes value to your square footage. Adding a small bench in front of the window gives a pleasant allure as well.

Although there are many benefits to having a bow window, they tend to be a more costly choice than a more basic window. Adding extra windows takes more space on your walls, taking away the option of hanging artwork or photos. Bow windows take more width of a wall than regular windows.
