Thanksgiving is just around the corner, which means many homeowners will endeavour to wrap up home renovation projects before the snow flies. Several of the most common fall repair or replacement renovation projects tend to be roofing repairs, eaves troughing, entry doors and windows.

Should you find replacement windows are on your “to do” list, the team at BestCan has a few tips to help you select the perfect models.

STYLE

Windows are often selected to accent the architectural style of your home. In most cases, a window model can showcase the interior and exterior of your home. Many contemporary and modern homeowners will gravitate towards large, clear view casement style windows. Whereas victorian or traditional homeowners may opt for bow windows, high profile windows, sliders that may feature interior grills, Georgian grills, or pencil grills.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Windows provide a bright, airy outlook in your home. Unfortunately, older windows are also the primary source of heat gain and loss, which can impact the temperature control and cost of utilities in your home. By choosing the right glass options and finishes, the insulating properties of new windows can provide significant savings for both your wallet, your energy costs and your carbon emissions.

DURABILITY

Thanks to advancements in manufacturing techniques, window performance and durability has drastically improved in recent years. When shopping for new windows, take the time to explore the various manufacturers, learn about their specializations and systems. Read reviews. Get a feel for their quality and craftsmanship (visit a showroom or dealer, try the hardware and opening methods in person). Windows are an investment and you owe it to yourself to select a product that will stand up against the harsh, Canadian elements for years to come.
