Replacement Bay Windows

Replacement bay windows are beautiful additions for any home. Bay windows are a particular window type that can open up small or dark rooms and provide a panoramic view of the world outside. They are a great place to set your favorite chair or the holiday tree in the winter time. They add architectural detail to the outside of homes as well. Investing in bays for vinyl or glass replacement windows is a great way for homeowners to dress up home exteriors and give themselves more living space on the interior.

Replacement Vinyl Bay Windows

Vinyl is popular as a choice for a window material for many different reasons. Manufacturers love it because it is inexpensive to procure and easy to work with. This keeps material and labor costs down, which allows manufacturers to keep their own prices low for consumers. This, in turn, leads to one of the reasons why consumers love vinyl.

Replacement bay windows framed in vinyl are generally more affordable than any other material. Once they are installed they are easy to maintain and provide many years of great performance. For many folks, the maintenance issue is just as important as the price. The average bay window buyer who chooses vinyl would rather not put the work in that is required to keep wood windows up to speed and in good shape.

On the interior side of the home, replacement bay windows are usually trimmed out with decorative trim. Depending on the width of the wall they may be flush mounted on the exterior side and inset on the interior, requiring drywall finishing or window stop material to finish it out along the edges. But all of these details vary and depend on the specifics of the house and the replacement bay windows themselves. In any case, the appeal of this particular product type is great and the effect it has on a home is stunning.

How Bays are Finished

Sometimes a replacement unit is installed right in the place of the old one, and sometimes the rough opening is opened up or somehow altered to accommodate changes in design. The latter is often true when replacement bay windows are involved. A homeowner may have an existing double hung in his living room and decide that he wants more visibility to the outside. It is hard to accomplish this when available width is limited. But one option is to convert over to bay windows when the replacement is done.

The area where the new units are going to be installed usually is built out from the home but attached to the wall, so the existing home structure supports the new framing. On the outside, the new part of the wall does not extend all the way to the ground but overhangs it. The area is finished with siding or some other material once the replacement bay windows are done. And the top of the new structure is roofed in with shingles, or with painted steel or copper panels. These window additions are done best when the old unit id under a gable so that there is room to build up a bit for water runoff as well as building out to accommodate the replacements.
