Canada is known for our extreme weather both in the summer and in the winter. The weather conditions outside your home should not appear on the inside—a good sign that your windows need to be replaced. You often ask yourself: “Do your windows leak water or let in too much air in the winter and summer months?” Inefficient and old windows can leak, allowing water to come into your house both in front of and behind the walls—this is actually a leading cause of mold and mildew in homes. These old and worn-out windows or patio doors often leak air, resulting in high energy bills during peak heating and cooling months. It’s time to replace them with the help of the experts at Ottawa Doors and Windows! To help you through the replacement process, let me, Sam Crupi – Ottawa Doors and Windows Professional, conduct a free home assessment to determine what the best type and style of windows and doors will give your home a fresh new look and a stronger exterior and to protect your windows!
Your old windows have glass that may be loose or the seal between the sash and frame may have weakened. Ottawa Doors and Windows recommends replacing old single-pane windows with new windows that feature dual-pane low-E glass from VinylBilt for substantial energy savings. You’ll see the cost for replacing failing windows is often diminished by overall household energy cost savings. Remember: if the weather outside is coming inside, you’ve got a problem and it’s time to call for help!
Here at Ottawa Doors & Windows, we use energy efficient windows to improve the comfort of your home, while saving you money on your energy bills.
The windows we use are from VinylBilt, don’t just trust our word on it, here’s what VinylBilt says on their website about the quality of their windows:
TRIPLE WEATHER SEALS
These seals are oversized for higher performance and built into the frame to prevent any air transfer, allowing for a completely sealed unit.
MULTICHAMBER POLYRESIN 3 PVC
Our advanced multi-chamber vinyl frame, manufactured from our exclusive Lead-free, 100% virgin Polyresin 3® PVC. Designed to draw moisture away from the window to the drains, reducing condensation and the formation of mould and mildew.
WHITE “S CLASS” SUPER SPACERTECHNOLOGY
Inside quality built windows you will find a spacer between the layers of glass. The spacer is usually constructed of steel or metal. Its purpose is to separate, seal and insulate the layers of glass, helping to keep your home warmer.
At Vinylbilt we improved the spacer. Vinylbilt utilizes the White “S Class” Super Spacer® constructed with flexible, 100% polymer foam, instead of metal. This allows it to expand and contract. This breathable foam is able to absorb moisture, and reduce the formation of condensation.
A LIFETIME OF DURABILITY
When it comes to durability, our White “S Class” Super Spacer® outperforms other spacers in the industry’s toughest tests with a simulated 90-year lifespan.
