PVC, aluminum, hybrid or wooden windows?
When changing condo windows and patio doors, you need to make a choice between some common materials for the frames of your windows. You'll find among others the most common styles that are PVC, aluminum, hybrid model and wood. Which one would be most suitable for your needs? This is the question our experts could help you determine the answer to.
A material that has good insulation and is especially affordable. It's a winning solution for a solid price/quality ratio. It's possible to find these types of windows in several forms that can tie in well with the curves of your condo's facade.
For a formula with very little maintenance required, you can never go wrong with aluminum. It's a very resistant material, with a beautiful finish and is available in several colours. Its cost is slightly higher than that of PVC.
The advantage of hybrid windows is that you can attain the benefits of more than one type of window for outdoors and indoors. For example, you could adopt a classic style of wood in the interior of your apartment and have the advantages of weathering PVC and aluminum on the exterior.
This style is more common in houses with an authentic and rustic character. It's rare to see windows with entirely wooden frames for condo buildings.
Several styles of patio doors are available for your apartment block or for your condo. From PVC to aluminum and wood, so many designs and styles are at your fingertips. Moreover, the style of opening is not restricted to the conventional sliding one. You always have the front opening which is more up-to-date and becoming more and more common in Quebec. In short, a multitude of options are available to you.
Tax credits for any responsible eco-change
Did you know that your windows can be a source of air infiltration over time due to the state of their insulation. So you may be spending dozens or even hundreds of extra dollars every year, since your heating and air conditioning appliances have to work harder to combat the outside air and maintain your set indoor temperature. Extra heating or cooling leads to excess energy consumption, which can, in turn, negatively impact the environment, so the Canadian government is working to encourage you to opt for new, energy-efficient windows that offer better insulation and save you energy and money.
Currently the Reno-Vert program is in place until March 31st, 2018 and allows you to claim a 20% tax return on your expenses exceeding the first $2,500 on your window replacement. It's a worthwhile program that saves you valuable dollars in the end!
