    Better planning leads to better choice

    Date : 12 Août 2020

    Windows are one of the most attractive qualities of any house. Windows improve the look of a house, whether admired from the exterior, or the interior. Windows allow light to enter a residence, while conserving heat during our notably extreme Canadian winters. The selection of a window’s shape and characteristics – while keeping energy and aesthetics - in mind – is very important and remains an uncontested plus in the value of your house.

    Customize your windows according to the architecture of your house 
    Choose from opening systems, glazing, tiling and assembly combinations that will enhance your home. Various choices of special glass: frosted, tempered, tinted, choice of colours and materials.

    Materials
    PVC: an inexpensive and most advantageous option. Its use has increased in twenty years from 5 to 60% of the market. Easy to maintain, good thermal performance, good looks, we like it.
    Hybrid: The durability of aluminum (exterior) combined with the recognized energy efficiency of PVC (interior).

    Double and triple glazing
    The main advantage of multiple glass layers is a Low-E (Argon gas) film layer can be inserted In the space between the panes. In Canada, all houses are required to have double glazing at minimum. In certain regions, triple glazing can prove more advantageous to further reduce heat loss, condensation and noise.
