Tips To Keep Your Home Warm This Winter


Many homes are designed to keep the interior cool during the hot summer months, but the same can’t be said about retaining heat during the colder months. A lot more energy is needed to keep your rooms comfortable in extreme cold than in very hot conditions, especially if you have to keep your heater on both day and night. This can drastically increase your energy costs unless you take the necessary steps to insulate your home this winter.

Why Is It Better To Choose Patio Doors Over Garden Doors?


When it comes to replacing your doors as part of your home improvement project, there are not that many options to consider as there are with windows.

Both options offer function and style, but how do you choose the right door that will give you access to your backyard for the next decade-plus? Energy Efficiency Patio doors are…

Sound is not necessarily a bad thing, but it becomes a nuisance when you are unable to control it, at which point it becomes noise. Loud and unusual sounds at the wrong place and time can be distracting and stressful, making it impossible to sleep, work, or study, and if prolonged, can be detrimental to your health. The best ways to manage noise are by eliminating it at the source and moving further from the source. But this is not always possible, like when you live near a nightclub, pub, a busy road in the city, or a construction site,…

Benefits Of Argon-Gas-Filled Windows


Argon is an inert (non-reactive, non-toxic, colourless, and odourless) gas that is used within insulating gas units (IGUs) to enhance thermal performance. Since windows have a fairly low R-value (the capacity an insulating material has to resist heat flow), every improvement including extra glazing layers, low-e (emissivity) coatings, and gas fills help to improve efficiency. Windows that contain argon feature a sealed unit comprising two or more panes of glass with argon gas filled between them. Argon is the third most abundant gas in the atmosphere at 1 per cent, after Nitrogen (78 per cent) and Oxygen (21 per cent).…

Unfortunately, many parents overlook the fact that accidents that occur in the home cause far more fatalities and injuries to children than anything else. According to the Journal of Pediatrics, a massive 83 per cent of the cases of children falling out of windows involve screened windows.
