How to Find the Perfect Windows and Doors on the First Try

How to Find the Perfect Windows and Doors on the First Try


We know it’s difficult. There’s so much going on, and such a wide selection to choose from, that it can be tough to really feel like you know what you’re doing when you start shopping for windows and doors. They’re a crucial component of your home and will make all the difference when it comes to letting in light and keeping in warmth during those long Canadian winters. If you’re renovating or building your own home, you’ll probably be working with professional builders and renovators. Here are a few things to keep in mind for all the people involved, so you can be sure you end up with the products you really want and need.

  1. First of all, you need to ensure that the professionals working on your home are aware of your design sensibility: what you’re looking for and why. If you’re replacing doors and windows in an old home and want to maintain its Victorian look, for example, it’s crucial not only that you find the same architectural style of window — casement, awning, or bay, for example — but also that the wood stain or finish, the sills, and the hardware all work to recreate that vintage look you love. In order for your builders and renovators to accomplish this with premium windows, they’ll need resources, product specifications and performance details, which can all be found on our website.

  2. Once you’ve established a clear communication with them, you’ll also need to provide input on the kind of products available for each window type. For example, a decision must be made on whether aluminum clad exteriors should be used, or whether the interior and exterior look of a window should match seamlessly. Renovators will of course advise you on the options more convenient and practical, but it never hurts to explore the product lines for yourself.

  3. Finally, don’t be afraid to ask questions. If you’re a builder or renovator and will be in charge of installing the product yourself, the instructions that accompany each of our products are an invaluable resource to making sure everything goes smoothly. If you’re a home designer without a builder, have no fear, because here at Golden Windows, we also have an expert installation team that knows the product and has been collaborating with other professionals in the field for many years.

Trust our premium windows to bring you the perfect option for your home — we provide an incredible amount of variety in style, finish, colour, and mechanical performance because we know that style sensibilities can be as diverse as people themselves. You might simply explore our Energy Star Rating, Warm Edge Technology, and ISO certificates to assure yourself that we put our clients first, and customer care has functioned as the very root our our growth for decades. When you choose from our curated selection of warm and rich colours, you’ll experience the satisfaction of knowing that our standard options make the product as easy to use as it is to look at.
