Seaway Now Offering Enhanced Bow & Bay Window Options to Homeowners
Posted On Tuesday, Jan. 7th, 2014
Seaway is pleased to announce exciting new enhancements to our Bow / Bay product line.
Seaway’s bow and bay windows will now come standard with a pre-insulated seat design comprised of layered 3/4″ exterior grade plywood and a 1″ High-Density Foam Core. This enhanced insulated seatboard is thicker and stronger and yields an insulating value of R-9!
This enhanced, pre-insulated seat is available in three designs:
1 & 2.“Stop at the Jamb” or “Stop at Specific Distance from Inside”- Insulation stops at the outside wall, thus providing insulation where needed without reducing the overall height of the window.
3.“Entire Seat”- The insulation is completed on the entire seat. This design is used when there is an obstruction near the sill area, prohibiting “stop at the jamb” design.
The vertical mullions in Seaway’s enhanced bow and bay window system are reinforced with threaded steel rods, attached between the head and seat, using counter-sunk weld nuts. The weld nuts provide superior fastening capabilities as compared to standard screw-on nuts. This bolted assembly provides for a sturdier bay or bow window frame.
Lastly, Seaway’s bow and bay windows now come standard with an adjustable, turnbuckle cable hanging system that can be secured to the soffit rafters or side wall studs and can be used with roof systems or fascia extension applications. Each turnbuckle cable hanging system includes the following: screw-on eyehook mullion top, 5/16″ x 18×6-3/4″ hook and hook turnbuckle, 36″ length 1/8″ steel aviator cable and cable clamps, and 3/8″ x 3″ eye bolt lag screws.
Keep checking for more exciting product enhancements throughout the next few months!

Why Replace My Windows Instead of Repair Them?
Posted On Thursday, Oct. 3rd, 2013
For most people, their home is their biggest financial asset, so protecting its value is very important. When faced with deteriorating or poorly performing windows, you have the choice to either repair or replace them. Repairing your windows only temporarily relieves your problems, rather than providing you with a sound investment solution for the long run. Your windows are the HARDEST WORKING ITEMS IN YOUR HOME.
Think about it. You expect to see out of them with excellent visual clarity, while allowing sunlight to stream into your home, but also keeping out unwanted ultra violet light. You ask your windows to provide outstanding ventilation when opened but want them to remain virtually air-tight and thermally insulated when closed. You demand your windows to protect your family
from insects, extreme weather, wind, rain, snow, ice, and forced entry. They must be easy to operate and clean. Above all, they should last a very long time.
Considering the important role windows play in your home, choosing to replace them with premium Seaway vinyl replacement windows is an intelligent investment decision. This choice allows you to protect and enhance your home, increase your resale value, and significantly reduce your energy costs; all while substantially adding to your safety and comfort.
Your windows are too important to consider skimping with low value replacement windows.
