Bow & Bay Window Costs
Bow and bay window costs range from $1,400 to $6,000 installed. This is a huge price range so we will break it down into entry, mid range and high end projects, along with some details as to materials, glass, hardware and options to expect in each price range.
Entry Level Bow & Bay Window Costs
Entry level bows and bays windows usually have 3 fixed frame windows - usually a prefabricated unit that is delivered to the home by the installers - three installers is typical for this project. The frames will be a vinyl on the interior and exterior and the frame color choices will be very limited (white and off white). Homeowners can expect a low end low-e glass and plastic hardware on the unit.
Mid Range Bow & Bay Window Costs
Mid range bows and bays will typically still have only 3 windows and be prefab units. However at this price point the side windows may be movable for ventilation - most likely casements or double hungs. The frame material might be a high end vinyl, fiberglass, aluminum or even a wood clad. The glass package should be a mid range low-e option with fills and there should be some nice upgrades and options as to frame colors, finishes, grids, screens and hardware materials.
High End Bow & Bay Window Costs
High end bows and bays can get very expensive. They will almost always be custom made windows installed onsite and may have 4, 5 or 6 windows in the design. These will almost always be wood clad with a quality wood interior and a fiberglass or aluminum cladding on the exterior. Homeowners can expect tons of upgrades and options like triple pane glass, exterior frame colors and finishes and premium hardware options.
Bow and bay installation prices range from $600 to $2,000. Install pricing will depend on how well the replacements fit inside the existing opening. Damage to the sills and jambs can quickly elevate the price. A standard 3 window bow that fits the existing opening should take an install crew of three 4 to 6 hours to replace and will average $900.
