Windows & Doors

Choosing the right windows and doors for your home can be difficult, and finding someone reliable to purchase from and install them can be even more frustrating. Here's what you need to know...

When it comes to selecting new windows and doors for your home, it’s very important to consider a number of different factors. To ensure you make the right choice, there are certain things you should look for and certain things you should avoid.

Here are three important aspects that every home owner should consider before making this important decision:


When you invest in new windows and doors, the warranty is an important part of the decision process. Be sure to read agreements very cautiously, to ensure you understand what portion of the product is covered and for how long. Be careful because time frames can vary; for example, you may find certain time frames on one part of the window like the hardware, but limited warranty on the seals. Also, you should always ask your manufacturer how they track warranty claims and whether or not they make warranty exceptions. Lastly, you can get a good idea of how long companies expect their products to last, based on the limitations they put in their warranties. If the company is confident enough to give you a lifetime guarantee on their work, then you should be in great hands!

Energy Efficiency

Your windows and doors are the most common culprits when it comes to home energy loss. Your home can easily and quickly lose heat to the outdoors through air leakage and through conduction.

Here are a few things you should look for:

- The frames are insulated and also durable
- The product has tight air seals
- The product has cavities between double and even triple panes

For the ultimate piece of mind, keep an eye open for the ENERGY STAR® label. The Energy Star symbol is internationally recognized in all areas of energy efficiency and in order to be Energy Star certified, products must meet and exceed minimum Canadian federal energy efficiency standards.


A good reputation is everything! It all comes down to ensuring that the company installing your windows and doors has a good track record for delivering high quality service and for installing a high-quality product. It’s always a wise idea to do some research online and investigate; keep an eye out for customer reviews, photos of their before and after work, comments and complaints. Or, you can always do this the ‘old fashioned way,’ by calling the company directly and asking for references.
