Why are bow & bay window prices different?
To understand why bow & bay window prices are different, you should first know the difference between the two window designs.
Both of these designs are windows that stand out or project from the main body of the property, but there are some significant differences in how they are built and installed.
for example: Double Glazing Vs Triple Glazing?
A Bay window is 3 sides of a square or rectangle, with one big picture window at the front and 2 smaller windows at the side. Very often a bay windows will be floor to ceiling, but you can get them just to fit the window opening space. So a bay window with 3 sides has 3 separate windows.
A bow window is one long curved window, mostly seen fitted into an existing window opening, but sometimes floor to ceiling. A bow is made into one continuous curve by joining a series of windows (commonly 5) together. This process requires a high degree of technical skill.
So the process to make either style is very different and installation is also not the same method – hence the difference in price. Learn more at doubleglazingpriceguide.org.uk
