Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of casement windows?

There are several benefits to choosing casement windows for your home. They provide excellent ventilation, as they can be fully opened to allow fresh air in. They also offer great energy efficiency, as they create an airtight seal when closed. Additionally, their simple design makes them easy to clean and maintain.

What are lift-out slider windows?

Lift-out slider windows are a type of window that slides horizontally along a track to open and close. They can be lifted out of the track for easy cleaning or maintenance.

Are there any downsides to installing picture windows?

Picture windows may not be ideal if you want a window that allows for ventilation as they cannot be opened. However, their thin frames make them great for beautiful, unobstructed views.

How do I clean fixed casement windows?

  1. Remove any dirt or debris from the window using a soft-bristled brush or vacuum cleaner.
  2. Use soap mixed with warm water and a soft cloth to wipe the window frame and glass pane.
  3. Immediately dry the window with a soft dry cloth to avoid streaks.
  4. If you notice any stubborn stains on the glass pane, you can use a commercial glass cleaner to remove them.
  5. Inspect your fixed casement window for any damage or wear that may need repairs.

Are tilt and turn windows energy-efficient?

Yes, tilt and turn windows are energy-efficient. This is because they have multiple locking points that create an airtight seal when closed, which helps to prevent drafts and heat loss. Additionally, tilt and turn windows can be opened in two different ways: either tilted inward from the top for ventilation or swung open like a traditional casement window. This allows you to control the amount of air flow into your home without compromising on energy efficiency.

Tilt and turn windows can also be made with insulated frames and double or triple glazing, which further improves their energy efficiency by reducing heat transfer through the glass panes. All of these features make tilt and turn windows a great choice for homeowners who want to save money on their energy bills while still enjoying plenty of natural light and fresh air in their homes.

Can I install a screen on a double hung tilt and turn window?

Yes, you can install a screen on a double hung tilt and turn window. There are different types of screens available that can be customized to fit your specific window size and style. Contact our team to learn more about our screen options.

What material do you use for hopper windows?

Our vinyl hopper windows are affordable, low-maintenance, and energy-efficient. They're also available in a wide range of colors and styles to match your home's design.

Can bay and bow windows be used in small spaces or only in larger rooms?

Bay and bow windows can be used in small spaces as well as larger rooms, depending on the size and design of the window. In fact, bay and bow windows are often used in smaller rooms to create the illusion of more space and bring in additional natural light. However, it's important to consider the size and layout of your room when choosing a bay window design to ensure that it fits well and doesn't overwhelm the space. We can help you choose a bay window that works well for your specific needs and budget.

Can awning windows be used in any room or are they better suited for certain areas of the house?

Awning windows can be used in any room of the house, but they are particularly well-suited for certain areas where ventilation is important. For example, awning windows work well in bathrooms or kitchens where moisture and cooking odors need to be vented out. They can also be a good choice for bedrooms, as they provide natural light and fresh air while maintaining privacy and security. Additionally, awning windows can be a great option for basements or other areas that require ventilation but may not have enough wall space for traditional sliding or double-hung windows. Ultimately, the best window type for your specific needs will depend on factors such as your home's architecture, climate, and personal preferences.

How can I customize my window?

There are several ways you can customize your windows to suit your needs and preferences. Here are a few options:

  1. Choose the material: Windows can be made from a variety of materials, including vinyl, wood, aluminum, fiberglass, and more. Each material has its own pros and cons in terms of durability, energy efficiency, and aesthetics.
  2. Select the style: There are many different window styles to choose from, including double-hung, casement, awning, slider, and more. Each style has its own unique features and benefits.
  3. Add decorative elements: You can customize your windows with decorative elements such as grilles or muntins (the strips that divide the glass), as well as hardware like handles and locks.
  4. Opt for energy-efficient features: Many custom windows offer energy-efficient features such as low-e coatings or insulated glass that can help reduce your heating and cooling costs.
  5. Choose the colour: Some custom window manufacturers offer a wide range of colours to choose from so you can match your windows to your home's exterior or interior design scheme.
