Homeowners these days have more choices than ever when it comes to windows. From double or triple panes of glass, to windows in various shapes and sizes, there are nearly endless choices for you to consider. Here are a few of the best window styles that are ideal for modern houses.
Awning windows in Toronto are ones that are hinged at the top and are opened by pushing them outward until the glass is slightly at an angle. These windows are ideal for letting a breeze in without allowing pets or children to escape. They tend to be slightly wider than they are tall to allow for better airflow. They can be placed anywhere, but work especially well in bedrooms and bathrooms. Many people choose these windows for finished attics because of their slightly wider dimensions.
Unlike awning windows, casement windows in Toronto are hinged at the side. As such, they open by pulling the panel open much like you would a door. Smaller windows may contain only one panel, while larger ones are likely to have two. These windows are perfect for kitchens, because they open quickly to let smoke and odors escape. They can actually be used in any room of the home due to their simple design that blends well with any décor. Larger ones could even be used as fire escapes, making them perfect for children's bedrooms.
Bay windows consist of three separate windows: two smaller ones on either side and a larger one in the middle. Bay windows protrude from your exterior wall somewhat, and can help give your home curb appeal. They also allow for better views, since there are more panes of glass. These windows are ideal in smaller rooms, because they allow more natural light in to make your space seem bigger. They may be used in family rooms, foyers, living rooms and dining rooms, particularly those on the front of your home.
Bow windows are sometimes confused with bay windows; however, they are slightly different. Bow windows also contain a larger center window, but may have two or three smaller windows on either side. The fact that they contain more windows means they also have a more curved appearance and protrude from your exterior wall more. They are better suited for very small areas such as a sunroom or covered front porch, since they do tend to provide a bit more space than bay windows. While bow windows do provide a better view than traditional windows, it's not quite as panoramic as what you can achieve with bay windows due to the added hardware needed to hang them.
Aside from these options, you can also choose windows that contain features such as frosted coatings or multiple panes or sections of glass. Windows are also available in various materials such as wood and vinyl. We invite you to look at several different styles in order to find the one that is right for you.
We just wanted to write to say thanks because the window quality is great and your helpful craftsman and professional installers made the entire experience wonderful. We only wish we could have this experience with all of our renovation projects.
We recently moved to our new house and needed to do some repairs and renovations. Your company was recommended by our very pleased friends. The windows look amazing and the installation job Richard did was first class.
It’s not everyday that I take the time to email a contractor… but my wife insisted! You guys did a great job and you kept it quick and quiet. We’ve got a newborn who sleeps often and your man did a good job not waking her up. Cheers.
We had done our share of research before finally deciding to go with your company and we must say that EuroSeal really had the greatest value. Guess we can chalk it up to working with a manufacturer.
It is our pleasure to say thanks for a great job done by your company. Luke and his colleague did a lovely job and they were very well mannered. It was a pleasure having them around.
We especially appreciated the help of your craftsman in choosing the appropriate style and colour for our first home. In the end, the windows look beautiful and I’m extremely happy with how easy they are to clean.
We damaged one of the external hinges a month ago, and your company’s prompt and efficient handling of the service call was impressive! We appreciate how quickly your company sent over a representative to fix the problem.
