Windows Options

Choosing window replacement North York is as easy as knowing if you want your new windows to be fixed (letting in lots of natural light, but with no open/close moveable panes) or operational with opening/closing panes. Windows of today have addressed many issues of the past, and our engineered ‘high performance’ windows reflect those changes. The most popular type of windows are casement windows (they are very versatile, can easily be multiplied to provide a more expansive swath of incoming natural light and loads of fresh air, they are aesthetically appealing, fit into any architectural structure, beveled exterior sash designs (larger glass area) and slim appearance). Casement windows use a crank handle to open & close the multi-directional panes, and in the closed position, the handle locks down into place, ensuring a tight seal and adding security. Then comes the also popular single & double hung windows (the single hung window has one sash that opens and closes vertically, and the double hung window has two sashes that open & close and slide vertically). Other types of windows available for your consideration are awning windows, that opens and closes just like an awning, from the bottom and outwards, and controlled with a hand crank. End vent slider windows have a fixed centre window with an operable window on each side for fresh air flow. Bay windows & bow windows are great for providing wider expanses of glass panes (which casement windows can be added for both air intake & more expansive views (which also creates a lovely little ledge on the interior of a home).

Window After Care & Maintenance

Gentle soaps, warm water, soft rags and gentle glass cleaner are all you need to prep your windows for an oncoming season. Rinsing the residue of any soaps very well will ensure that there is no residue to damage any parts of your windows. Never use any harsh chemicals, scratchy cloths or sponges and do not use acidic solutions like vinegar. The hardware or working parts of your windows do require lubrication from time to time to keep them in good working order (you can use lithium grease, automotive grease or even petroleum jelly, but not petroleum-based lubricants!). Apply a small amount of lubricant to working parts, then use 3-4 times to work in the lubricant. When it comes to lubricating rollers and hinges, use a silicone based lubricant.
