The Ins & Outs of Bay Windows

It’s no secret that the presence of natural light is an instant mood booster.  An ample amount of windows within your home can create a peaceful environment, especially if you have an enviable view.  Therefore, it should come as little surprise that bay windows are one of the most popular styles within the marketplace.  This is because they allow in generous amounts of sunlight & can showcase a home’s landscape.  Here’s what you need to know about the inclusion of this type of window within your home.

What They Are: Bay windows consist of a sizable window that does not open with smaller windows on each side that both open and shut.

Why Homeowners Love Them:

Increased Resale Value: Bay windows will make a room feel more sizable, a trait that home buyers are frequently willing to pay a premium for.

Daylighting: An abundance of light within a room positively changes the area’s entire dynamic.  You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better way to do this than with a bay window.

All-Encompassing View: The enormity of bay windows makes them ideal for highlighting picturesque scenery.

Sophistication: The incorporation of bay windows within your home allows you to embellish a room with refined features, such as designer drapes & curtains.

Worth Considering:

Upkeep: By their very nature, bay windows have a more sizable glass surface than other styles, which means that keeping them clean can be a tedious task.  This is particularly true when children and pets are part of the equation.

Installation: Rarely is this a project that an amateur should attempt; special care must be taken to ensure that bay windows are installed properly.  Without this, your home can be vulnerable to structural problems, such as sagging.

Price: Bay windows are oftentimes more extensive than other styles because they have more glass.  That, coupled with the fact, that an experienced professional should be hired to perform the project, all adds to its final cost.

"Products are great.  The people that came to our home to install the windows and gutters were very nice and knowledgeable."

"I had the Marvin windows installed and I'll tell you they're better than Andersen.  The guys who put them in, Tony and Ryan, were excellent.  I'm going to go get some more windows from you as long as Tony and Ryan install them.  I'm very pleased."

"Jim and Jake just did my windows and doors! They were like a well oiled machine! Looking forward to the remainder of my project!"

"All work was done by very polite workers.  I like the lifetime warranty .  This company, to me, is A+.  Everything was done as promised and they replace the whole window and frame instead of just putting insert windows in like their competitors do. And their competitors were more expensive for less value."

"From the sales presentation to the installation we were dealt with fairly. Installation a few weeks ago went smoothly; the crew picked up after themselves; the amount of light from the new windows is awesome; color match to existing trim is amazing; the house is now secure.  We are most pleased with the windows and the process. Highly recommend Lindus Construction."

"We had a couple of our windows replaced with Lindus Construction. They were prompt and very quick. They sent out two crews to get the work done (it was a very cold day).  We also are doing more work with them, and we received a call from the scheduler to let us know they hadn't forgotten about us, but the work couldn't be done until the temps got warmer - good communication!"
