Window Replacement Kitchener
Vinyl windows have become very popular among new and old homes in need of a facelift. Their simple design, low maintenance characteristics, and energy efficiency make them a perfect choice for any window replacement project. However, not all vinyl windows are created equal. In fact, there are numerous differences in quality between windows that may look identical.
Here at Southfield, we use 100% uPVC extrusions, but what does that mean exactly? The UPVC (Unplasticized polyvinyl chloride) extrusions are prepared with our patented formula, where modifiers and stabilizers are added to polyvinyl chloride (PVC) making it rigid and suitable for use as window frames. This high-quality vinyl is rot, mold, and maintenance-free, and comes with a lifetime warranty against any cracking, warping, or fading.
Glass is another important factor to take into consideration when choosing your windows. Most windows in today’s market are double glazed- meaning each Insulated Glass Unit (IGU) comprises two panes of glass connected by a thermal spacer. For enhanced energy performance Low Emissivity coatings (Low E), and argon gas are added. Triple glazed units are also used for added efficiency and noise reduction. All Southfield glass units come with a minimum 20-year warranty against seal failure, with certain glass combinations being offered with a lifetime warranty.
