5 Reasons To Replace Your Windows

Every season brings its own elements and the wear and tear that comes with it can take a toll on your windows. In Canada, it is imperative that your windows are high quality and that they are sized, fit, and installed properly so as to ensure that your house and family are protected. After many years, some of us may also want to update the look of our windows to complement our homes! Let’s dive into 5 reasons why you may need to replace your windows this season.

1. Cosmetic Updates

Many of our customers request new windows to enhance the aesthetic and cosmetic appeal of their homes. Our customers are often surprised to see what a difference new windows have on the overall look and feel on the inside and outside of the home. They are also easy to open and close quietly and offer the security your family needs. 


2. Fogged Appearance

When the glass on your windows looks foggy and dirty all the time regardless of the weather and cleaning, that is a sure sign that your windows need replacing. This usually happens to old windows that don’t have much protection against the elements.


3. Weather Damage

Canadian weather comes with a wide range of temperatures and climate conditions. Over time, the glass on your windows can crack and become damaged due to extreme weather conditions and low-quality materials. If your windows are older and the quality isn’t best suited for Canada’s temperate climate you may consider replacing them. Our windows also contain optimal weather stripping materials to keep the elements where they belong—outdoors!


4. Energy Efficiency

Old homes were often made with wood and a single pane of thin glass. Not only is this outdated but the energy efficiency simply does not compete with our premium quality glass panes. Our customers often complain that their old windows would rattle in the wind and that their homes would struggle to keep the heat in during the winter and the heat out during warmer summer months. Having new energy-efficient windows is convenient, easier on your wallet, and healthier for your family.


5. Noise Control

Along with the sound of rattling windows, customers would often note that their old windows’ weather stripping was worn out and that they offered no sound control. Our double and triple-pane windows keep the sounds of the neighbourhood outside and supply a more comfortable and quiet environment inside.
