Have You Looked Under Your Bay Window?



The picture shows the under-side of a bay window. You can see the exposed plywood under the window - this is the same plywood whose other (painted) side is exposed in this home's kitchen.


The opening around the plywood is subject to insect and animal intrusion, is an opening for

drafts into the home, and a cause of heat loss in the winter due to being uninsulated.


The underside of this bay window should be insulated and sealed to help prevent insect and animal entry, minimize drafts, and improve heating efficiency in the home. The plants in this window will be happier too!


So, what does the underside of your bay window look like?
