Very happy with my windows. I used this company to install replacement windows in my home in early December. I worked with Steve. He was very clear about pricing and what would be involved in the window installation process. All the new windows were installed in two days. Very good prices and a good experience. I would recommend this company.
Upgrades and updates for a home are a homeowner’s bane, forever is he or she is bombarded by the next big thing to make the home look more presentable or energy efficient or squeeze more size out of your existing configuration. Flyers in the mailbox, calls from telemarketers, or booths set-up at fairs or gathering are all inundating a homeowner with information that may or may not be useful for their goals of the gentrification of their home that will be cost-effective while enhancing the inner beauty of the property you fell in love with when you saw it.
Some of the goals are laudable, upgrades that require less use of fossil fuels come to mind as a goal worthy of pursuing, but what is the best way to approach the responsibility while improving a home’s overall look?
Unseen upgrades like furnaces and water heaters offer a brief respite from high-energy bills, as do smart appliance that can improve the look of a kitchen per se, but don’t speak to the character of the house or provide the kind of savings that say replacement windows might.
Whether done in whole or in part – replacement windows can reduce energy consumption while improving the exterior look of a home. Sure, you don’t want to replace your home’s windows piecemeal because you wouldn’t enjoy the maximum savings that new energy-efficient windows provide, but it is a project that is one of the best ways to accomplish your goals.

When you talk to one of the windows and doors consultants he will meticulously define your needs and wants and incorporate them into a recommendation that will serve your home’s windows needs well.

Bow windows share some similarities to their cousins’ bay windows; they expand the size of a room through the protrusion that is the selling point for the window and let in more actual light than flat, conventional windows. But that is where the similarities end and the bow windows difference become relevant. A bow window isn't geometrically shaped – meaning it isn’t a flat piece of glass that two other pieces of glass set at an angle to the glass centre. Bow windows contain a number of panels – five usually – and are set so that the window takes a crescent shape to it. Also, different from bay windows is the fact the bow windows will open to allow ventilation – you can have just one panel open or more depending on taste.
Vinylbilt bow windows
As per the Platinum Series of windows, the bow window comes in the standard white colour but can be modified for the customer to fit the design décor of the home. With the bow windows by Vinylbilt, the panels can be four-panel or five-panel windows and they can have moving parts or non-moving windows to suit for taste and application. Depending on the type of glass used in the construction, energy efficiency ratings can vary, but be assured that they are the highest Energy Star and NAFS-08 ratings on the market. Bow windows can create great views for a homeowner and they have the uncanny ability for additional space like a bench or a breakfast nook. The windows are installed on a radius line on outward and they have the distinction of adding another dimension to a home’s décor inside and out.
A bow window will add more natural light to any room, provide ventilation that a bay window can’t, they have a modern look about them and the clean lines carve out a profile that says ‘look at me.’ The improved curb appeal that bow windows provide also add dollars to the bottom line through increased value of your property with a bow window making a statement when you approach the home. The bright and airy look that the bow window provides is like catnip to homebuyers as they are looking for these features when purchasing a new home.
