Replacing Windows & Doors ?

Let the Kloog Contracting Toronto Home Renovations install the right product for your specific home needs


Replacing windows and doors now needs to meet certain standards in the Building Regulations to reduce energy loss. This means that you need to comply with the Building Regulations when installing replacement windows, doors, or roof lights in both domestic and non-domestic buildings. The Building Regulations have controlled glazing in new buildings for many years but it is now a requirement to improve the performance of existing buildings so as to achieve national energy saving targets.

 

Ventilation

If your original windows have trickle vents, then replacements should also have them. In addition, habitable rooms and rooms containing a toilet should have an opening window of at least 1/20th of the floor area of the room.

 

Means of escape in case of fire

The means of escape in case of fire should not be made worse by new glazing particularly for any up stairs rooms and any rooms only accessible through other rooms. Opening windows should be at least 0.33m2 in area with a minimum dimension width or height of at least 450m (for example a 450mm wide opening will need to be at least 735mm high) and they must not be more than 1100mm off the floor.

 

Note!

Certain pivot type windows do not have an unobstructed openable area suitable for escape purposes.

 

Combustion air to fires and heating appliance

Certain fires and heating appliances may possibly have relied on ventilation through ill-fitting windows and doors. You need to have any of these appliances inspected by a qualified person like a CORGI installer to ensure that there is no danger and we need you to sign a declaration about this.

 

Structure

Check that the window opening is properly supported. New windows are not strong enough to support the walls above and a suitable lintel may need to be provided.

 

Protection from falling

Windows with openings within 800mm of the floor need a device to prevent a child falling through but this must not prevent means of escape in case of fire or other emergency. Your installer can advise.

 

Retention of accessible thresholds

Some door openings are designed for wheel chair access. Your new doors must not affect this.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Windows Types

There are basically two types of windows; those that open and those that don't... referred to as operating and fixed windows. One can install as many fixed windows in a home as the local building code will allow, without forgetting that many building codes require at least one operating window for security reasons involving fire or other emergencies requiring a rapid exit from the building. Fixed windows are more efficient, for they are better sealed than operating windows. They also offer greater levels of security.

 

Operating Windows

Operating windows are available in many models: awnings, casements, canadian hoppers,guillotines,tilt & turn and sliders.

There are two ways of rendering windows airtight; namely compression weatherstrips or slide weatherstrips

Windows with flexible neoprene compression weatherstrips are usually the preferred choice, and do a better job of keeping the cold out

Casements, awnings, tilt & turn, and hoppers should have locking mechanisms that keep the sash closed tightly on the compression weather stripping.

Pro-Fit   Replacement Double Hung windows provides aesthetic appeal, energy efficiency and low maintenance, all in a modestly priced window. A long list of standard features, combined with a multitude of performance and design options, let you create a window that will not only fit your needs, but your budget as well.

Sliding Window

The Replacement Sliding window offers clean, simple sightlines and tremendous functionality. Two horizontally sliding sashes make this window ideal for areas where the use of projecting windows is prohibited, such as patios and walkways.

The Replacement Casement Window has many unique features, which make it an excellent choice for any room in your home. This window offers energy efficiency, low maintenance, and long lasting beauty. With so many sizes and venting arrangements to choose from, there's sure to be a style to meet your needs.

Premium Double Hung Window

Energy efficiency, convenience, appearance and durability are all features of the Premium Replacement Double Hung window. This quality window is built to provide a lifetime of performance and energy savings while providing the low maintenance benefits of vinyl construction.

 

Ultimate Double Hung Window

The Ultimate Replacement Double Hung window offers an unparalleled combination of beauty, craftsmanship and performance. This superior window design will enhance the appearance of any home while keeping it warmer in the winter, cooler in the summer and help to reduce heating and cooling costs.

 

Doors

Doors have less variety of models, and are limited to massive, massive with insulating foam core, massive with glazing, and massive with insulating foam core and glazing. Sliding doors can be made in aluminum, pvc or wood and function like large sliding windows, whereas french style doors use a compression joint/weatherstripping much like doors of an aircraft, thus offering better performance.
