WINDOW REPLACEMENT CHECKLIST

Examine your windows for some of these signs. Windows in a house should be replaced approximately every twenty years.

DRAFT TEST 

Hold a candle, match or lighter around the edges of your window. If the flame wavers, chances are your units are drafty.


INSPECT THE CAULKING ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE WINDOW

A broken exterior seal can be one of the biggest factors contributing to heat loss in your home.  Check your caulking annually for gaps and holes.


EXAMINE THE CONDITION OF THE WEATHER STRIPPING

It is crucial in ensuring high energy efficiency in operable windows.  Hung and slider windows wear the weather stripping down faster than other units, so pay extra attention there.


CHECK WNDOWS FOR EASE OF OPERATION

Make sure all cranks, handles and latches work properly.  Operable hardware become rusty and heard to operate.



ENSURE THE HEALTHINESS OF YOUR FRAMESS

Weather and temperature changes over time can cause deterioration.  Pay close attention to corners and joints: this is often where the frame begins to take the most damage.


SEE THROUGH THE GLASS

Broken or cracked panes mean the unit isn’t airtight anymore.  At the very least, in the event of a crack or sealed unit failure you’ll have to replace the entire sash.


MONITOR HUMIDITY LEVELS IN YOUR HOME

Warm air contains more moisture than cold air. Your windows are more likely to get condensation in the winter time.  Turning your thermostat down just a couple of degrees can prevent condensation. 


Correct installation is the most important part of successful window replacement. Each window is made to accommodate the existing opening.  We use spray insulation which minimizes drafts and seals your windows from the outside.


When removing old windows, we ensure that there are no rotting frames.  We will replace any frame components before inserting new windows. 

Our installations are done in accordance with Canadian Standards Association (CSA) guidelines and local building codes.  We specialize in residential window and door replacements.

We have an excellent rating with Trusted Regina and ensure that all work is done to the highest standard.

When the installation is complete, we ensure that your residence is left clean and all the construction debris and waste is cleaned up.


As part of our promise, we are dedicated to take care of your windows if any problems arise.

These amazing drapery tops are sure to wow!


Classic Pleat 

Our custom drapery has sewn seven beautifully constructed pinch style pleats onto the face of the panel so it looks just like a custom-made pleat panel when hung on a rod. The pleats are perfectly spaced and fixed so that the beauty of the folds remain even when the panels are drawn or closed.


Grommet Panel

The modern clean look of grommets work beautifully with any décor. The grommets are evenly spaced across the heading of the drapery and when woven on to a rod, structured columns are created across the face of the drapery.


Inverted Pleat

We’ve taken the best features from the faAB Pleat and incorporated it into the Inverted Pleat. This exclusive heading is a modern twist on a classic drapery heading.



Trusted Regina mortgage expert gives us some valuable information about Refinancing.

Trusted Regina Mortgage Associate

Refinancing...is it for you?

Canadians today face many reasons to refinance their mortgage. For example, you may have been working at improving your credit score and now qualify for a new mortgage with a better discount, or you may want to stabilize your payments by changing from a variable rate mortgage to a fixed-rate. Refinancing is also a good option to pull out equity for consolidating debt, home improvements, investments, college expenses, and more.


Refinancing isn't necessarily a bad thing or term

There are many things that play a role in whether or not refinancing is a good move.  The first thing is to determine what your overall goal is by refinancing.  It can answer many questions for you including providing you with these benefits.  Why do you want to refinance?

  • Getting a rate that reduces your monthly payment while being low enough to offset the costs of refinancing is one common reason to refinance
  • Paying down higher interest debts like credit cards or loans or lines of credit .
  • Having your monthly payment reduce to help you pay off your mortgage quicker as your not incurring more debt but able to now focus on just paying the mortgage off
  • Buying a rental property or 2nd home(cottage).
  • Increase your quality of life now, maybe buying a boat or trailer for those family outings.
  • Doing some investments and get a higher rate of return on your investments and borrowing the money at a lower rate for the mortgage.
  • consolidate their high-interest debt to reduce their overall interest rate and free up hundreds of dollars in cash flow every month.
  • Doing some much needed renovations to your home using the existing equity to increase the value of your home it's a win win .

Here is something most people don't know when considering when doing a refinance all costs can be included in the mortgage including lawyer fees and penalties. 

When done correctly, a refinance can save families money on long-term interest.
