Replacement Window Systems – Selection, Second to None
There is a wide range of window styles and designs in the residential market today. Comfort Windows and Doors carry only the best; replacement window systems include:
the traditional choice for so many homes. Attached to the frame on one side, casement windows open outwards, usually with a crank mechanism. They are versatile, very secure, and energy-efficient. But they must be of good quality, and they must be installed right. Our selection of casement windows and commitment to quality covers all the bases.
These are also a type of casement window, but with the unique feature of opening outwards, from the bottom. Hinges run along the top of the frame, and the window is pushed open, and pulled to close. Their distinct advantages include:
- Flexible placement – they are particularly good for higher-up installations
- Excellent moisture protection – water runs down and off them, not into your house
- Airtightness – awning windows provide excellent insulation values, as well as sound deadening
- Ventilation – particularly when installed up high, they allow for superior air flow
Single Hung Windows
consisting of two sashes, one fixed and one sliding. This configuration is great for tight spaces, restricting movement of the window when opening. They are also versatile in their design and placement options; as well, and are perfect for installation of window air condition units. Single hung windows are also very secure and easy to lock with a single step.
Double Hung Windows
feature two sashes, both of which slide up and down for opening and closing. There are also designs which allow them to pivot inwards, for increased ventilation. Double hung windows are versatile – allowing for control over the amount of ventilation required, using one or both sashes. They are also the preferred design for window air conditioner installation.
Double Tilt Slider Windows
Consist of two movable, but separate sashes. They slide side to side, as opposed to up and down, like hung windows. They are designed to tilt inward, making for easy cleaning of the exterior. For higher floors, or difficult to reach areas from the outside, these are a great alternative. Also, with two sashes that can be moved, double tilt slider windows offer a wide range of ventilation options. Because they do not open outward, they are an excellent choice at ground level, where space is limited.
Single Tilt Slider Windows
Single Tilt Slider Windows consist of two sashes, only one of which slides, in horizontal fashion. The sliding sash is also able to tilt inward, to allow for easy cleaning. This style of window is very economical, and a great choice if there are budget considerations, coupled with a need for quality and durability.
Large fixed, low profile frames, offering wide views to the exterior. They are usually a centrepiece to the room they occupy. Because they don’t open or close, they are often coupled with other styles of windows to allow for ventilation, etc. In addition to providing maximum outside view, picture windows will also maximize the amount of light coming inside. They come in many standard sizes, but can also be custom made to fit any dimension required.
Fixed Casement Windows
Fixed Casement Windows consist of dual panes of glass that do not open. They are used to allow extra light into your home’s interior; casement windows can be used on their own, or in combination with other styles, which can open and close, for ventilation or emergency exit purposes. They also offer maximum security because they don’t open, which can make them very useful in certain parts of the home.
a type of projection window, consisting of four or more window lites, that protrude from the room, creating a curved addition to the home, as they extend beyond the exterior wall. Unlike bay windows, they offer a smoother curve, and “rounder” effect. Bow windows can be fixed casement style, or they can be designed to open, allowing for ventilation. They are also an excellent choice for increasing interior light, given the large number of panes in the assembly.
a type of projection window, consisting of three panes of glass – a main centre pane of glass, and two side windows. The final look is more angular than bow windows, which achieve a more rounded effect, due to the use of more panes of glass. Bay windows add a few extra square feet of space to the room they’re installed in. They are often used for extra seating space, or display space, for plants, etc. Bay windows also enhance the exterior look of the home, making it appear larger.
Tilt and Turn Windows
The ultimate in versatility. Tilt And Turn Windows are in fact an amalgam of three different styles: a fixed window, a casement window, and an awning window. They offer top-of-the-line performance, in terms of airtightness, acoustical qualities, security and ventilation. A newer addition to the North American market, tilt and turn windows have been popular in Europe for decades.

Will my home comfort improve after installing energy-efficient windows (and doors)?
The obvious answer is ‘yes’ just because you’ll no longer feel the drafts that result from cold air entering through low-quality windows. There’s actually much more to an improved comfort level though. First off the insulation around your windows and doors is replaced with insulating foam which fills every void that might have been present resulting in more drafts. Window upgrades also keep your home more comfortable in the summer by
retaining cooled air and help to control indoor humidity throughout the year.
How do I know the new windows and doors I purchase are energy efficient?
All Energy Star products have a symbol and label on them that indicates they have been certified to meet stringent technical requirements. Always look for the Energy Star label when browsing for replacement windows.
What does it mean when a product is Energy Star certified?
Energy Star is a program run by Natural Resources Canada that was created to monitor and regulate the efficiency of various home construction products such as windows, appliances, furnaces, etc. Manufacturers submit their products to be tested and certified. If compliant, it means that products rank in the top 15 or top 30 percent in the niche in terms of energy performance. Energy Star certified products not only save money on your utility bill but also increase the value of your home.
When do I know that I need to replace my windows?
You can actively identify if your windows need to be replaced by being aware of the following:
- You notice fog, condensation, or moisture on your glass consistently. When the view through your window becomes hazy like this it usually indicates that a seal has failed.
- Certain areas of your home become faded from where the sun enters the window. This could be furniture, carpeting, or even hardwood and it means you need to upgrade windows because your current models are allowing harmful UV rays to enter your home.
- Your current windows are not rated for the new climate regulations. Colder climates require a higher ER rating to satisfy energy efficiency recommendations. Your windows are grandfathered in and a replacement isn’t mandatory, but just know the amount of energy you are losing by having these lower quality units installed.
- If your windows are having difficulty opening, closing, and locking it could be time for replacement windows or at the very least a repair. Having a window that doesn’t properly open is a violation of building codes and is a huge safety risk in case of a fire.
- Rotting or pealing wood means the windows are past their prime and ready for replacement. The older your windows are, obviously, the more likely this occurrence will be.
