How to Select the Right Window Design for Your Home

Selecting the right window style for your home involves some thought and planning. You need to take a variety of factors into consideration, such as how often you clean your windows, the size of your home, and the design style you prefer.


At Canadian Comfort Windows & Doors, you can choose from a wide range of window styles. Whether you opt for Gentek windows or North Star windows, the number of options may surprise you. We are committed to helping your find the best windows for your home, and we can install them for you, too.

Use the following points as a general buying guide when you are shopping for windows:

● Materials: One important factor when window shopping is the kind of materials you want. You might choose vinyl, aluminum, or wood for the frames. All of these materials offer benefits and disadvantages. Vinyl and aluminum are cost effective, and wood has a natural look and feel. North Star even offers a hybrid frame series, so you can benefit from both an aluminum exterior and a vinyl interior.
● New or Replacement: If you are replacing the windows you currently have installed, you will need to determine whether you want replacement windows or entirely new windows. If you simply wish to replace the glass, then you would only require replacement windows. Doing this involves less labor because the existing frames will remain intact. If you seek a new frame style, shape, or size, then you will need completely new windows.
● Styles: One of the exciting aspects of shopping for windows is exploring all the possibilities. If you are looking for an option that is easy to clean, you may wish to have tilt-in windows installed. These can be tilted indoors for easy accessibility, and they may be an ideal solution in homes with more than one level. Slide-and-turn windows also make cleaning an easy task. Garden vinyl windows are designed with shelves and multiple panes, so you can use them as a display option for plants and flowers. Getting these could be an excellent strategy if you do not have much outdoor space for gardening. You can even customize windows to fit your exact needs.
