How to choose the window covering style that is right for you.
- Find your style
Are you a minimalist or a maximalist? Learning about how you like to style your home will help us find the right coverings to match your unique style. If you want to integrate natural materials, try our wood blinds or light filtering shades. If you want a more traditional look for your picture window, try vertical shades with beautiful drapery –– the choices are truly limitless!
- What are your needs?
Want something durable and easy to clean, or would you prefer something with a touch of luxury? Whether you need simple and easy shades or want to add drapery and side panels, we have a window treatment that will suit whatever you throw at it. Tell us about your needs and we can offer an elegant solution. Perhaps you’re a shift worker in need of black-out shades for your bedroom, or a plant aficionado who needs light filtering shades. Our design team will work with you to make sure your lifestyle and window coverings align.
- Are you thinking of energy efficiency?
Window coverings are a great way to utilize sunlight as a passive source of heating and cooling. Did you know that as much as 30% of your home’s heating and cooling energy is lost through windows? We have a variety of shade options specifically designed to mitigate this energy loss –– known as the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC). Talk to us about energy-efficient solutions for your home.
A smart home is a cozy home.
Enjoy the ease and luxury of motorized window coverings by adding automated technology to your window covering package. With our easy-to-use app, you can choose your desired light throughout the day. Choose how to open and close your shades with custom parameters––like opening at sunrise and closing at sunset.

We will walk you through each step, from programming to integration with your other smart home devices such as Amazon Alexa, Siri on your Apple device, or the Google Assistant.

Are your windows collecting frost? It might be time to upgrade your windows. Over time, the barriers between your panes of glass deteriorate and collect moisture, making those pretty little frost patterns and ultimately, expelling a ton of energy. Did you know that 25–30% of residential heating and cooling energy use comes from heat loss and gain from your old windows? Upgrading your windows can save you money and is more sustainable for the planet. We’re going to talk about how.
How do windows deteriorate over time?
Double and triple pane windows use sealed air spaces to insulate you from the Canadian elements. Over time, as the glass expands and contracts that seal can become worn. If your windows were installed incorrectly or have surpassed their lifetime, you may notice condensation and frost build-up between the panes. This can be a good indication that you need to upgrade your windows. Other signs that you may need to upgrade include rot, water damage anywhere near the window, and excessive drafts. We recommend visually inspecting your windows both inside and outside annually. If you notice anything amiss, we are here to provide a free estimate for you and your home!
Energy-efficient windows can save you money!
If you’ve been procrastinating about upgrading your windows, you’ve probably been spending more money on heating and cooling your home than you realize. Upgrading your windows can prevent excessive heating and cooling loss in all seasons, meaning you need less energy to stay comfortable all year long.
What is the difference between triple or double pane windows?
1. Triple Pane
This style of window uses three sheets of glass with a sealed dry air barrier between them. The benefit of a triple pane window is that it provides increased insulation, making it especially ideal for extreme climates. Triple pane windows can be up to 60% more efficient than a dual pane, making them an attractive option for your home. In addition, the third pane also dramatically reduces street noise.
2. Double Pane
These are the standard for Durabuilt windows and will still be a major upgrade, especially if your windows were single pane glass. It still features a sealed dry area between panes that functions as insulation and is an excellent option for upgrading.
