Bay & Bow Windows
Bay and Bow Windows are made from either Casement, Flush, Tilt & Turn or Sliding Sash Window frames connected together with what is called a bay pole.
From the outside it creates a beautiful feature to your home and on the inside can create additional seating whilst enjoying more views. With all of our windows you don't need to worry about draughts or a cold area as all of our windows have great energy efficiency.
The main difference between a Bay and a Bow window is the way it projections from your home. A bow window is a segment of windows planted onto the wall and therefore the projection created cannot be stood in, whereas a bay window adds a projection to the wall which can be stood in from the inside as well as usually supporting a Bay Window on the floor above.
Regardless if its a Bay or Bow Window we have options for any type of home.
We have 3 materials for you to choose from - Aluminium, Timber & uPVC

Bay & Bow Colour Options
We find that when our customers choose a colour with uPVC and Aluminium they tell us a RAL number. This has become so popular that as well as Delux, Farrow & Ball and Little Green, Timber Windows can now be matched to RAL colours as well.
This has helped a lot of our customers as before this they were having to choose an either/or that made some customers abandon their original choice of windows and go with the next best thing.
At Decor we have so many colour options due to texture finishes on our Aluminium Windows, a realistic woodgrain effect on our uPVC Bay & Bow and Micro-Porous/Stained finishes on our Timber range.

Aluminium is very commonly known as being a conductor of cold air, we would be lying if we said that is not any different now - this is because the technology has improved by introducing a Polyamide Thermal Break between the profile Thermal Break that improves Energy Efficiency by 30%. This gives our Aluminium Sliding Sash Windows a B Rating by the BFRC.
uPVC is now known as the warmest window and with the uPVC Chambers within the profile it helps to break down cold air as it tries to get through. Along with Double Glazing this helps our uPVC Sliding Sash Windows achieve an A Rating and with Triple Glazing can boast an A+.
Timber is a natural efficient window, as their are no Chambers needed or Thermal Breaks it proves that sometime nature wins. Accompanied with our Double Glazing gives our Timber Windows an Energy Rating of A as standard and upgrading to Triple Glazing helps us to achieve A++.
We are sure at Decor you should see a reduction in your fuel bills no matter what material choose.
