We offer all types of windows: casement, awning, simple or double slit, with shutters (to facilitate maintenance), sliding, bay-bow, architectural or special forms. Several opening mechanisms, such as swivel-opening, interior awning, tilt and turn and espagnolette, are available based on needs or the specific project.
PVC windows, aluminum windows, windows made from wood or composite materials – almost anything is possible! Choose from our wide selection of windows based on your taste, budget and requirements. Our expert advisors will guide you, helping you to navigate our various technical and style options!
The door to your home is its smile. It can be simple or double, contain side panels, topped with a transom, contain clear or satined glass, stained glass or a magic eye.
It can be modern, contemporary, classic, adorned with executive paneling or decorative mouldings.
The different door panel motifs, the palette of different colours, the ball-bearing or decorative hinges, the colour of the doorstep, the model and finish of the handle that you will choose are all decisions with which our consultants will be able to guide you based on the architectural features of your property, your neighbourhood, but also according to your tastes and touch of style that you want to give.
Your door is also something that protects your household from the outside. This is why we offer solutions that can enhance the degree of security, such as the multipoint mechanism or a steel safety plate, that reinforces the solidness of the frame in terms of the drilled holes required for hardware.
All these configuration choices involve different components and manufacturing steps.
The doors of our house brand are manufactured in our own plant, which was the first stainless steel door manufacturing plant in Québec. Fitted with digitally-controlled equipment, the precision of our machinists and the expertise of our employees ensures that a door will not only be esthetically appealing, but sealed and resistant to our harsh climate.
The requirements of the Energy Star certification involve using glass components that have been tested and a manufacturing procedure that has been audited by Natural Resources Canada.
The vast majority of windows are available double paned and some manufacturers even have the option of triple panes. Glass offering the best energy efficiency and required for most Energy Star certified windows are those covered with a low e-coating (commonly known as Low-E) and whose space between the glass is filled with inert gas (argon). This gas has the effect of reducing the loss of heat by conduction. Window glass is also available in a choice of decorative finishing (frosted, pinhead or glue chip) or tinted (gray or bronze).
It is possible to add a decorative touch to your windows by embellishing using different tiles (between the different glass panes, on the surface or using both for a more realistic effect). Tiles placed between glass panes also makes cleaning easier.
The sealing (weathertightness) of double and triple panes, as well as insulation of the glass, are ensured by an insulating material, called a spacer, installed on the windowsills (or on the perimeter) of the glass. Manufacturers use different materials to produce the spacers, in foam without any metal insert (Super Spacer from Edgetech), in low thermal conductivity stainless steel and in INEX (thermoplastic filled with silica).
Window frames are available in several materials, but PVC windows continue to be the most popular these days. Those in wood are primarily sought after for their charm, heat, wood grain beauty, the stain and the material’s natural look. Aluminium is known for its solidness and longevity and is more resistant to fading in the darker shades. For those looking to take advantage of several materials at a lower cost, we offer hybrid windows that combine two materials: PVC and aluminium or wood and aluminium.
Weatherstripping is a key component in designing a window, because it will play an important role in determining the energy efficiency of the product and in its long-term weathertightness
The Energy Star certification ensures a level of strong energy efficiency based on a given climate zone. It is, however, important to speak with a consultant, because each product’s specifications are different and influence the degree of energy efficiency
For several years, fenestration products have been offered in a wide range of colours that meet the majority of market demand, but it is possible to produce colours on special request in an almost unlimited palette
