Energy efficiency requirements in the Ontario Building Code, coupled with advances in glass-making and glass-coating technologies, have made today’s windows extremely efficient. Say farewell to drafts and stuffiness, AND reap the benefits of increased comfort and lower utility bills.
If you’re replacing or adding windows as part of a larger remodelling project or planning the construction of a new home, consideration should be given to location, size, type, style, function, operation, material, interior and exterior finish, hardware and assembly.
It can seem overwhelming, but this is where your builder, renovator or window and door expert should help you to work through the choices and determine the best combination for your specific needs and preferences. Working with professionals, will also ensure there are warranties on the windows and on their work.
