Bay Windows and Bow Windows
Bay window has three panels. A Bow window has
four or more panels. They are sometimes factory constructed
on a one and one half inch thick piece of oak plywood
with roofs above them. The manufacturers we
use custom build these units to the quarter inch.
Bay windows, the standard configuration is to have
a picture window in the center and either double hung
flankers (the two outside windows move up and down)
or casement flankers (windows that crank out).
Bow unit has four or more windows placed in a semi-circle.
It is also constructed on one and a half inch oak
plywood and custom sized to within a quarter of an
inch. Retro-fit bows and bays can work a bit
differently depending on the application.
units like the one in the picture are assembled on
the job site from individual windows. We then
custom bend mullions inside and out to make a completed
product. This enables us to work with the existing
brick in way that pre-manufactured bows really don't
allow. As you can see the results are truly
