Bay Windows Need Care and Upkeep to Stay Beautiful Southwest Marietta, GA
A room with a bay window.

Bay windows are a beautiful way to add more light to your room and provide a nook for seating. Often bay windows are used off a kitchen as part of the breakfast nook, or you can have a bay window in the family room or living room and add cushions to have a cozy place to read. Bay windows are also great spots for plants; even your cat will love them.

What is a Bay Window?

A bay window is a window that bows outward from the wall and contains three sections. The bay window has a large front window and windows on either side. Because a bay window protrudes from the walls, the bay window must be properly supported. If not, they can begin to sag and move away from the house’s foundation.

Are Bay Windows Old-Fashioned?

Bay windows were popular years ago, but are they old-fashioned? When building a home, natural lighting is a big plus. A bay window allows much more light than regular windows. Because the light is so good, a bay window can be a boon to a plant lover, offering a wide area to display potted plants or seedlings. In addition, a bay window can be used as seating.

Do Bay Windows Cause Problems?

Obviously, windows are made of glass, and bays are no exception, so there is always the potential for breakage. However, there are a couple of issues that can cause problems. First, many bay windows leak when it rains. Many times, this can be repaired with weatherstripping. However, the scary problem is when the window sags.

Because the bay window is extended from the main foundation and the windows are extremely large and heavy, sagging can be a problem. In addition to the weight of the bay window, furniture such as a table adds more weight. If your bay windows begin to sag, problems can happen. As the sagging increases, the windows become harder to open or close and can jam.

When your bay window needs repair, it is essential to choose a foundation expert to ensure the repair is permanent and effective.

Tammy S.

From start to finish, everyone at Anglin's was amazing! Gus was responsive, always answered his phone, knowledgeable, professional, honest and fair. He went above and beyond to make a stressful situation less stressful. Scheduling was a breeze and the crew that arrived on the job (on time, I might add) were courteous, respectful and efficient. They allowed me to watch and take pictures, and explained the process step-by-step, as well as what results were to be expected. Iggy was so knowledgeable, professional and amazing. He was able to pin point a problem that 2 other competing companies couldn't explain or relay in layman's terms what needed to be done and why. He was an absolute superstar in easing the mind of the buyers purchasing the house. His 27 years experience was so valuable. Shelly was quick to send paid invoices and warranty information. Everyone did an amazing job and I would recommend them highly.

I cannot say enough good things about GUS at Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry! GUS, was fast and gave a free estimate on raising, reattaching and fixing my brick stairs. I will be sure to post before and after photos! Thank you GUS for your no nonsense, straight forward approach! Thank you for listening to me! The Greensmith’s

Regina Renee Kalasz

Today was a install of a 2nd beam for our house... first one was easy, 2nd one gave them a run for their money. But they stuck it out and got it done! Awesome work! I'd throw a + behind my 5 stars if I could. Sorry I held your crew up, but they were determined to get it done with no issues. So shout out to your team Chris, Leo and Dan!

Scott Lapin

The team that lifted our chimney was prompt, courteous and efficient. Other then the repair, you simply could not tell they were even there despite the fact they had to remove part of our deck to do the work. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

Melissa Reed

Diagnosis and estimate from a picture, arrived as scheduled, done in just a couple hours and results were absolutely amazing. Price, workmanship, clean up - everything was absolutely 5 star!! Highly recommend these folks!!! I must add, 2 other well known and much advertised companies came out and estimated 6x the work and price, claiming we had more issues than what was actually going on. These guys call it like it is - honesty and integrity are hard to find in construction.

Dana Brennan

This crew is top notch. Worked with the office and mainly with Gus on site who was great. Showed up early, super knowledgeable, tons of experience. We really felt served in the way he recommended only what needed to be done and at a great price. Had another company wanting to add in other extras and unnecessary work. HIGHLY recommend Anglin!!

Aaron Gray

Quick to call back and totally honest. I wasn't sure if I had a foundation issue or a flooring issue but after a few questions, Nathan helped to figure out that it thankfully wasn't a foundation issue. Insteand of trying to sell me a job, Nathan helped me to make a good decision. I hope I never have foundation issues but if I do, this is the company I'm hiring.

Jake Herman

Another masonry contractor referred us to Anglin because we had a concern about the structural integrity of our chimneys. We were told that they were the best people to talk to. I called them and they actually came by to assess my house within two hours. Although I was fully prepared to spend a lot of money to stabilize my chimneys, he did a full assessment and very honestly told me that my chimneys were fine and just needed some caulking where the mortar met the brick. I greatly respect his expertise and honesty and would recommend him without reservation.
