Specialty, Bay & Bow Windows

Bay Window

Canton Aluminum offers specialty windows in bay and bow styles in addition to garden windows. A gently arched bow window or an angled bay window can make your home feel bigger and brighter. Specialty windows add architectural interest to the exterior of a home and bring in the beauty of the outdoors.

Bay windows are made up of three sashes that are angled to project from the exterior of your home. Typically the middle sash is a picture window that doesn’t open and the side sashes are double hung or casement windows.

Bow windows are similar to bay windows, but they typically have at least four sashes and are much less angled. These window installations have a more rounded look, and project gradually from the exterior of your home.

Garden windows are similar to bay and bow windows as they extend from the wall to the exterior of your home, but they are usually square or rectangular in shape. Garden windows get their names because they are often used to allow sunlight to reach potted plants or herbs. These functional windows typically have sliding sides to offer ventilation into the home. 

Canton Aluminum offers double and triple pane specialty windows for energy saving efficiency. If you’d like to select sashes for your bay or bow window design, check out our window types here.
