Windows are gateways to your home, framing the outdoors for inside viewing. They let in the elements you want (ie: light and fresh air) and keep out the ones you don’t want (ie: noise, heat, rain).
At EconoShield, we offer every style of window you can imagine, from replacement windows to customized window constructions and every type of accessory you can think of. No matter how simple or complex your needs, we can create windows to instantly update and beautify your home. All our windows are energy efficient, easy to maintain and are extremely durable.
Casement windows offer an unobstructed view from all angles. They can be fixed (not openable), for maximum energy efficiency, or swing open like a door, to the left or right, to provide superior ventilation. Operating with a folding handle, the window opens up to 93 degrees, allowing generous access for cleaning. Casement windows are strong, durable and extremely energy efficient.
An awning window operates similarly to a casement window, except that it pushes outward from the bottom window sash. This feature allows superior air ventilation while preventing rain from seeping in.
Awning windows are a popular choice for kitchens, since they allow in more sunlight. When installed in combination alongside larger fixed windows, they provide maximum viewing area while simultaneously allow in airflow.
Double Hung Window
A double hung window has two sashes that allow for up and down movement of half the window. Both sashes can be tilted into the room for easy cleaning. Operating one or both sashes at the same time allows for better ventilation control.
Since the sashes in double hung windows do not open outward, double hung windows are the best choice for rooms that face walkways, patios and porches. The durable tilt handles make operation of the tilt feature almost effortless. Double hung windows also have a sloped exterior finish to allow for easy water drainage outside.
Bay windows are customized to your taste and specifications. They maximize space and add diverse viewing space. A bay window typically consists of a large window flanked by two smaller casement windows, all joined together to form one large viewing area. This type of decorative window projects outward from the wall and commonly features a seating area beneath, known as a Sit Down Bay window. Each window can differ in style, offering a multitude of features and function.
A bay window adds curb appeal from the outside while creating space and impact from the inside, making it one of the most sought-after choices for Alberta homeowners. They are popularly featured in living rooms and master bedrooms.
A bow window is a series of five or more panes joined at equal angles to form an even curve or radius (usually less than in a bay window) in the wall. A curved or bowed window allows for an increase in viewing directions. Each glass unit can be stationary or operational and in any combination.
Bow windows allow in more light and increase the sense of a room’s spaciousness, provide rich views and allow multiple additional design options such as window seating, a breakfast nook or a plant ledge. Bay and bow windows are an especially popular choice for living rooms and master bedrooms.
Egress windows serve multiple functions. They can add aesthetic value and are essential for emergency access, such as exit from a fire. As such, egress windows require specific size considerations, large enough for a person to exit in an emergency. Alberta building codes require egress windows installed in all bedrooms.
Our professional installers have the capacity to cut through concrete to complete the task. We adhere to all Alberta fire and building codes and offer a lifetime warranty on all our products.
