Do you want to add ventilation, natural light, value, display space and additional benefits to your St. Louis home? If so, consider investing in bay windows. They are among the most popular types of replacement windows in St. Louis. Perfect for any room in an energy-efficient home, they are versatile as well as attractive.
Angling for the Best Views?
Homeowners may choose from double hung or casement windows with side angles that range from 30 to 90 degrees. Exterior finishing options often include wood and cladding alternatives with interior selections that range from various paints and stains to stickling. There are also other decisions to be made in terms of casing, hardware, divided lights and glass.
Don’t Sweat Missouri’s Hot Summers
Given the spacious feel of bay windows, many St. Louis residents choose to go with turtle glass for several reasons. First, it helps deflect heat and intense light on those hot, Missouri afternoons. Second, it comes with a buyer’s choice of argon or air-filled models. Although both are excellent at helping to maintain building interiors, many people find the gas-filled options more to their liking in terms of energy efficiency.
Stop Leaking Money Over Bad Decisions
Our replacement window professionals believe that they are energy-efficient too. However, it is important to point out that any type of filled window has a chance of springing a leak. If that happens, the replacement windows will lose the very materials that help make them more efficient than their counterparts. As such, they will need to be refilled or replaced. Oftentimes, bay window replacement is the ideal choice.
Why? Refilling windows is generally costly, inconvenient and complicated. Plus, it doesn’t always work and not all bay windows are eligible for refills. So, we recommend that customers simply choose to invest in replacement bay windows as opposed to focusing on salvage efforts.
