There are different types of bay window available these days and it is a good idea for you to understand exactly what kind of work will go into replacing the type of bay window you have:
- These windows have bay poles on a curved or part bay. The poles connect the sections together, making the angle of the bay and supporting the weight from above.
- Square bays have a post on each corner which shape the bay into its distinctive “box” or “square” shape. These corner posts also work to support the weight above the window.
Bow Bay Windows
Bow bay windows are one of the most common and often evolve from normal flat windows. To turn a normal flat window into a curved bay window, the old window and internal window board are removed then replaced with a new white dura-board window board. This new board is cut to the shape and size of the new window.
The new window is then installed and it makes the curved shape of the bay. Finally, a GRP fibreglass canopy is installed to complete the roof before lead is installed and chased into the wall. This lead keeps the window watertight and prevents water ingress.
