If you see that your windows already look shabby and do not perform as well, as supposed to, then it is just the right time to consider a windows replacement project. With the help of new winos you will not only improve your home’s both interior and exterior design, but will also make it more energy efficient and comfortable place to be at.

Today the market of Winnipeg windows has hundreds of units to offer. New windows are made of different styles, shapes, sizes, colors, with a variety of features, so the choice might seem to be pretty overwhelming. This is why it is important to understand the basics of your perspective units. This article is dedicated to the windows materials and glass options to help you choose the right one for your project.

Material of Window Frames and Sashes

  • Wooden Windows: Wood is the oldest and most classy option for windows frames and sashes. According to Calgary windows experts, this is one of the most durable and energy efficient materials available today. However, with the perfect look, you need to pay for its maintenance a lot.
  • Vinyl Windows: This is the most popular material for modern windows. Vinyl replacement windows are energy efficient, nice-looking, and maintenance-free. On top of that, you also get the best ratio of quality-cost.
  • Vinyl Clad Windows: Vinyl-clad windows are a combination of wood and vinyl. This material combines all advantages of both materials and eliminates their disadvantages. As a result you get perfectly looking windows without much maintenance and perfect energy efficiency characteristics. Vinyl-clad windows will also cost less than wooden units.

Choosing Window Glass

Now we would like to have a close look at glass and its characteristics, as this is the second most important part of any window.

First of all, consider the number of panes (layers) of glass that you choose. Most frequently double-pane windows are those you are looking for. Keep also in mind that you can fill the spaces between the panes with special gases, such as argon or krypton, to improve energy efficiency of your new units.

Apart from the glass itself, consider having special coatings to improve efficiency:
  • Low Emissivity (Low-E) Glass: This coating is invisible to the human's eye which reduces the amount of heat flow through the glass itself and as a result helps to preserve constant comfort temperature inside of the home.
  • Impact Resistant Glass: This coating is extremely useful if you have a child. It is a layer of material that keeps a glass together if broken. As a result you get absolutely safe windows that will not break under the hardest impact.
