Bay Windows

These windows were designed to increase the space inside your room. The windows extend out past the external walls of the house, which creates a number of benefits:

  • More floor space – as mentioned above, some bay windows can open up more foot space in your home, all while looking great!
  • More natural light – The nature of bay windows means that they can let in floods of natural light. Not only is this good for the environment, it also allows you to save on your electric bills.
  • Easy access – By being external, it means that bay windows are typically easy to get to when it comes to maintenance.

Sash Windows

These traditional double glazing windows are brilliant at giving your home a cosy look. And they’re easy to open and maintain!

Sash windows can either be single-hung, or double-hung. Single-hung means that only one of the window panels can be moved up or down. Double-hung (which is a newer design) allows window panels to move up or down.
