Ideally, the window should also provide an elegant new look to your home. A carefully selected color, shape, and style will all contribute to making your home more comfortable and esthetically pleasing.

Criteria for choosing vinyl windows

Criteria for choosing vinyl windows

To choose high-quality vinyl windows, there are many aspects to consider from the insulating properties of the glass to the stylish design. It’s also important to properly measure and install the windows. You can get a rough estimate of measurements yourself, but our experts will double-check them before installation. At Buildmart Windows & Doors all measurements are taken for free, so you need not worry about costs and the work associated with this.

When selecting a vinyl window, the following features should be considered:

Window type

Window type

There exist two windows types: stationary and opening windows. The first type of windows is fixed. The windows do not open, have no handles or additional mechanisms. The opening windows are mobile and can be open or closed. Often, customers will select a combination of both window types for their home.

Versatility

Versatility

Vinyl windows are simple and easy to use, and their main features include a wide range of types and shapes. For example, you can choose slider windows that move easily without taking up space. Or opt for an awning window to air the room even during a rainy day. It’s important to determine which functions you expect from the windows and make your choice accordingly.

Insulating glass unit

Insulating glass unit

When it comes to insulating glass units the following criteria are important:

The number of chambers in a double-glazed window is important. The more chambers you have, the more soundproof and insulating the window will be. The best option for cold weather protection is triple glazed windows.

The second important parameter that will keep your home warm is the energy efficient glass. Energy efficient windows or energy star windows have a thin spray with a metal alloy, which reflects the heat from the window into the room and at the same time allows the daylight to pass through. Despite the spray, the glass remains transparent.

As for the inert gases, they are used to fill the chambers of a glass unit. Windows that use inert gases will ensure the house retains heat more efficiently. We recommend choosing the LOW-E Argon type which in turn ensures your heating costs will be reduced significantly.

Durability and warranty

Durability and warranty

A new window should serve for decades; a vinyl window will do just that. Vinyl is a sturdy and weather-resistant material that can withstand chips and cracks. It can easily endure Canadian climatic conditions. Ideally, it is best to buy windows with a guarantee, so that you can use them worry free.

Appearance

An entry door should perform multiple functions at once. It must protect one’s home from invasions, as well as have good thermal and noise insulation. That is why the choice and installation of your home doors must be made carefully.

Over the years, we’ve noticed clients chose an entry door based solely on its appearance without considering other properties. We also notice clients opting for the cheapest option and risk getting a “cardboard” like door that can deform or swell from the weather. To avoid these situations, Buildmart Windows & Doors will help you determine what quality doors and trim are right for you.

Characteristics to consider when choosing an entry door

Characteristics to consider when choosing an entry door

The most popular options are either classic or steel entry doors.

Classic doors are a versatile option that will suit any house interior. They come in a variety of material options, often made from solid wood with finger joints, solid wood veneer composite, or from a variety of wood species. The classic doors are easy to maintain, they are durable, which makes them a pleasant aspect to your home. You can also include fittings, sashes, and decorative glass to these doors. The classic version is suitable for those who want to independently choose all the components of the door and its appearance.

A good and reliable steel door should be selected when considering the following criteria:

The first thing you should consider is the intended use of the door. The front door should be not only sturdy, but also resistant to weather conditions. For apartment entry doors, the insulation from the penetration of odors and noise is important.

On top of this, you also must know the exact location of the door in your home. So, if you choose a garden door, you can select unique garden doors or patio doors. With these types of doors, the aesthetic appearance is more important, and the protection aspect is not as high of a priority.

The street door on the other hand, must be sturdy and tough.
