It may seem like the whole point of a window is to be able to open it; however, some windows serve a different purpose.
Fixed casement windows are exclusively made to let in natural light. They are usually installed as part of a larger window unit, like a bay window, and are designed to let in as much light as possible while keeping heat in. They are energy efficient because they let natural light into the room to help heat it. They also lock in heat so it doesn’t escape which leads to lower energy bills. The less heating you have to use, the less you’ll pay in heating costs. Non-opening windows may seem like a lost cause but in the end, they are very effective and more than just ornamental; they’re energy efficient.
Fixed casement windows allow sunlight to pour into a room easily. They’re stylish and can compliment any home’s exterior and interior.

We’ll give you beautiful new windows that you and the sun will love.

There are just a few things you’ll want to plan for: 1. Someone must be home to let our installers into your home. 2. Make space available in your driveway if at all possible so our driver can park close to your house. 3. Clear furniture from the area near the location where your new windows and doors will be installed. Our installers will be happy to help you upon their arrival if you’re unable to clear the area beforehand, but we cannot be held responsible for any damages. 4. Remove all window treatments from the windows including blinds, shades, curtains, etc. 5. Turn off security systems if applicable.
Measure the width between the side jambs at the top, middle and bottom. Measure all the way to the jamb and both sides and the middle and record the smallest measurement. Your objective is to buy a window that fits within that opening.
If you are deciding which new home window styles you are wanting to have installed, you may want to look at the different costs of each window style beforehand. Window replacement costs on average $280 to $750 per window installed based on the window type and additional features.
There are five key elements to look for: 1. Do you see moisture, condensation or fog between the panes of glass? If so, you probably have a seal failure. 2. Is your furniture or carpet faded from the sun's ultraviolet rays coming through the window? If so, you probably do not have Low-E glass that blocks the sun's harmful rays. 3. Do you have windows rated for your climate? Cold Canadian climates require higher ER ratings to increase energy-efficiency. 4. Do you struggle to open, close, or lock your windows? Poor operation means the window structure is weak and failing. 5. Do you see peeling or rotting wood around the window frame? If so, it’s time for a replacement.
Vinyl windows are a common and affordable type of window to install in your home. How do you decide whether to replace your old windows? Learn your options, relative cost and effectiveness of repairs, and how to judge whether a window should be saved or thrown away.
