Choosing new windows or doors from such a diverse range of options can be a difficult and time-consuming task. It is important to select windows or doors that suit your personal taste, needs, budget and climate.

Doors and windows vary in design, purpose and cost. These structures and openings can also significantly impact the value of your home and property.

Great Canadian is here to help you navigate the substantial assortment of doors and windows available so that you make the best decision for you and your family.

Windows

Whether you are looking for lots of light or have a specific style in mind, there are different windows with varying functions on the market to choose from. Here a few windows worth considering.

Casement: A popular choice, casement windows are attached to the frame by hinges. They open outward from the house to allow for natural light and fresh air.

Tilt and turn: These versatile windows open inward from either turning or tilting. They offer considerable protection against rain.

Double-hung: These windows slide vertically to open. They are an effortless and a timeless choice.

Sliding: Easy to open and close, these windows are ideal for sunshine, ventilation and unobstructed views.

Louvre: This type of window has blades or shutters that favour brightness and ventilation. Louvre is a popular choice for warmer regions.

Picture: One of the few windows that don’t open at all. A picture window lets in light but nothing else.

Doors

The focal point of your front entrance should protect against the weather, offer security and be tailored to your liking. Interior doors should match your decor and meet your needs. Here are a few doors that are popular on the market.

Storm: This popular choice is an effective answer to volatile weather. As an additional door, it is energy efficient and protects your exterior door against damage from rain, snow and wind.

Panel: This type of door is an assembly of stiles and rails. It is commonly used both as an interior and exterior door. The best part is that it conforms easily to most architectural settings.

French: A beautiful and conventional option for any home. This illuminating style is one where rectangular glass panels span the entire length and are usually separated by frames.

Sliding: This door relies on rails instead of hinges and does not take up additional space in any setting.

These are just some of the options for doors and windows for your home or business. The idea to choose something is fashioned to your needs, wants and location.
