Bow Windows

Bow windows have a more curved appearance, making them softer than the original bay, which is much more angular in shape. The main advantage to using bow windows in any property is the fact they can be customized based on the design and style of the home.

Single hung windows are a simple type of window. It is not that different from the double hung window, except for the fact that only the bottom half of the window can be moved. The top sash of the window is unable to be moved, which is how this differs from the double hung window.
