Bow Window Features & Options
Windowsville bow windows are made from a unique, 100% lead-free Canadian-made premium uPVC. As a result, our windows withstand impact and discolouration better than competition.
Looks Fitting any Design
Our bow windows can come in both traditional window look and contemporary designs depending on your preference and window location.
Our bow windows come standard with precision mitered, fusion-welded corners, providing attractive appearance and eliminate the need for adhesive and sealants. Welding of internal walls yields increased structural solidity.
Our easily removable bow window screens are placed on the inside of the windows, where they are more protected from the elements and can be removed easily from inside. While featuring a light construction and elegant design, the screens are sturdy and provide protection allowing maximum air flow.
Low-E Glazing Options
While Low-E coating is not visible for most of its grades and lets most visible light through, it provides year-round solar control and comfort in all types of weather. In hot weather it rejects the sun's heat and harmful UV rays. In cold weather, it reflects heat back into the room. Different levels of Low-E coating are available.
Argon gas filling
The inside of the thermal glass unit is filled with argon instead of air. Argon is an inert, odourless, safe gas, which is denser than the air. As a result, our bow windows provide reduced inter-pane convection and yield improved thermal insulation efficiency. Coupled with the Low-E coating, Argon brings the temperature of the window closer to room temperature, while also offsetting water vapour to prevent condensation.
Warm Edge Super Spacer
The non-metal, structural foam spacer is the seal that keeps the glass unit in place. The dual-seal unit combines the sealant that performs the adhesive function and the second sealant which has moisture and vapour resistance properties. Both sealants perform well in both high and low temperatures and withstand height humidity and ultraviolet exposure.
Internal Air Chambers
Our bow windows have high number of sash air chambers, providing them with top perfect insulation and effective sound proofing advantages, as well as thermal efficiency and increased sturdiness.
Organic Foam Chamber Insulation
Certified organic polyurethane foam injection ensures safe and toxin-free insulation, while improving the overall thermal and sound performance of the bow windows.
Double and triple-pane insulated thermal units
Our bow windows can come with two or more layers of glass joined in a completely triple-sealed thermal unit which provides effective barrier to heat, humidity, and sound transfer for optimal comfort.
Get Creative with Grille Options
Make your bow windows special by adding unique decorative grille pattern. Decorative grilles can make an otherwise standard window look extraordinary and add a whole new dimension to your home appearance. Majority of home owners prefer the look of grilles in their windows to complement the architectural design and augment the look of their home. Any grille configuration is compatible with any grille type to get the desired effect.
Interior Grilles are installed between the glass units and require no maintenance, which leaves the window surface smooth for easy cleaning.
We carry most of the grilled in the same colour as our windows with optional metallic, silver, or gold.

Textured glass can be a beautiful addition to any room, adding a touch of elegance and style. Textured glass is known for offering superior privacy while allowing sunlight in and is remarkably versatile. Windowsville offers a variety of textured glass options, so you can choose the ideal glass for your property.
Should you prefer to add a gorgeous exterior look to your house, increase privacy, reduce the brightness of exceedingly sunny rooms, and control the climate of your space more effectively, tinted glass may be an excellent option. It comes in bronze and grey hues and is becoming increasingly popular. Additional benefits of tinted glass are glare prevention on computer or to screens, less visibility from outside, better furniture and fabric preservation due to more effective blocking of UV light, and to name a few.
Tempered glass is often called safety glass due to being 4 to 5 times stronger than ordinary annealed glass, which makes break-ins through windows much harder to do. It is heat resistant and its thermo stability is twice that of the regular glass, meaning it can withstand higher temperatures. In addition, should the glass break, it does not separate into large and dangerous chards as the regular glass does, but shatters into small pieces, significantly reducing the risk of injuries especially for young children.
Laminated glass is constructed of two layers of glass which are bonded together with interlayers to form a permanent bond. The interlayers work to support and hold the glass to create a strong, uniformed layer even when broken making the glass remain in its frame. The strength of laminated glass make it almost impossible to break, so any unauthorized person would struggle to gain entry. Other important benefit of laminated glass is that it causes noise waves to become disrupted when they travel through the material, helping to significantly reduce noise pollution.
Self-cleaning glass is a cutting edge technology in windows and doors industry. It is a special coating applied to the exterior of the window blocking streaks from precipitation and build-up on the glass from forming. This effect is achieved by forming an invisible "screen" on the glass surface, which, during precipitation, causes the water to glide off the glass rather than leaving droplets of moisture, which are the cause of streaking. This option is particularly useful for larger and hard to reach windows.
Bow windows and bay windows each have their own unique characteristics:
- Bow windows are typically comprised of four or five window openings, although variations with three or six windows are also available. In contrast, bay windows typically consist of three window openings projecting outward at angles.
- Bow windows feature a gracefully curved design, resulting in a rounded exterior appearance, with all windows being of equal width. Bay windows, on the other hand, have a configuration that includes a central picture window flanked by two smaller windows.
- Bow windows, with their semi-circular outer structure, complement architectural styles reminiscent of the Victorian era, while bay windows, with their angular lines and flat planes, are often favoured for modern homes. However, both types can complement a wide range of architectural designs.
- Bay windows provide additional floor space on the interior as they extend further from the wall into the exterior space.
- Bow windows typically allow more natural light into the room due to their increased number of glass panes compared to bay windows.
- Bay windows, due to their three-panel configuration, tend to be narrower than bow windows.
- Bow windows offer the unique option of wrapping around a building's corner, creating a distinctive turret shape on the exterior and an inviting nook on the interior. This configuration also provides views from two sides of the home.
Yes, bow windows tend to be pricier compared to other window types. However, the additional square footage and enhanced curb appeal they provide can justify the investment. Their distinctive curved design and multiple panes facilitate increased natural light and ventilation, creating a sense of spaciousness in your space.
