Last week we installed 4 windows in a home in Port Credit.
The clients did their homework and came to us as they liked Strassburger windows. Their post-war era home is 1 ½ stories on a busy street with a rail line close by. One of their biggest complaints was noise and secondly, drafty existing windows, which had been retrofit into the old frames a number of years ago.
We discussed the options and ended up selecting casement and awning style windows for their tight seal and compression gaskets. For the glass, we looked at a number of options like triple glazing, laminated glass and Heat Mirror film.
In the end we selected double glazing with two different thicknesses of glass 3mm & 5mm and used Cardinal’s Low E 366.
This was a very cost effective solution and we are happy to say the clients are thrilled with the results. We removed the window frames back to the brick, insulated with low expansion foam between the frame and wall, and replicated the interior trim and sill details to the home’s period.
The customers could not get over how much different the noise level had been reduced by.
Another job exceeding expectations.
