When building an extension on your home, it's crucial to take existing as well as potential air flow into consideration. It is important to install the right type of windows on the extension, as obstructing air flow can result in severe dampness and mold developing over time.
#1 – Awning Windows
When considering awning windows in Toronto, these not only allow for plenty air flow throughout a home; they can be left open when it is raining because their design enables water to run down the panes and drip off the bottom instead of coming inside. This means there is less chance of everything feeling damp and muggy during wet weather, which also prevents mold from forming inside your home. Owing to the fact that awning windows in Toronto can be opened quite wide when needed, they can improve air flow tremendously when added to an extension.
#2 – Bay Windows
If you want to maximize the amount of air flow through an extension, you can do so by installing bay windows in Toronto. These are normally the most common option to install along with a window seat in homes because they not only let in a tremendous amount of light; one or all of the panes on bay windows in Toronto can be installed as opening units, meaning that you can open different sides depending on how much of a breeze you want blowing through a room. If the wind changes direction, a window on another side of the bay unit can be opened to take advantage of the breeze coming in there.
#3 – Casement Windows
In most instances, casement windows in Toronto are installed in pairs, with one opening in one direction and the other opening the opposite way round. Installing them on an extension will let you make the most of directional air flow in much the same way as bay windows would. One of the only disadvantages of installing casement windows in Toronto is that they usually cannot be left open when it rains because the style of them doesn't keep the rain out.
#4 – Bow Windows
Bow windows in Toronto are very much the same as bay windows in that they are normally installed to let as much light into a home as possible. These are however a rounder shape than bow windows, which usually have sharper angles. As with bay windows, bow windows can be made up of multiple opening units or a combination of fixed and operable panes. However, the more opening panes there are on Bow windows in Toronto, the more air will be able to flow through a property extension.

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.
