How to Install a Skylight


  A skylight opens up your home’s design plan to the beauty of the open sky.   It’s the perfect way to introduce more natural light into your space, creating a more spacious and bright environment.  Where there is no exterior wall to install a window into, you can utilize your ceiling space for this purpose by installing a skylight window.   Before you go knocking a hole through your ceiling, you need to plan really well.  Keeping the sun in mind, decide where you want to position your skylight as having a window versus having a skylight in the room…

What to Expect When Installing Your Own Windows


                              Replacement windows is similar to vehicle maintenance or repairs.  Most people don’t start thinking about it until the obvious symptoms that a replacement is needed starts to show.  It isn’t until rain is leaking through the cracks in the window or there is obvious damage to the window that we begin to look into our options for replacing our windows with new ones.

                            A finished basement can be a fabulous addition to any home, creating another livable room for enjoyment, well-needed space, and storage.  Not to mention the separation from the rest of the home can make your basement a great place to relax, entertain, or the perfect place to workout and practice yoga.

  With all things in life that you may purchase, you’d hope you would be buying something that is a good balance between being both cost-effective and high quality.  It would be a shame to buy something that initially seemed like it was saving you money but wound up being worthless, non-functioning, and costing you more to replace in the long run.  It’s this kind of challenge that most consumers face when making the important decision to purchase new windows for their home.  Are they really worth it?

There’s an old joke that goes, “there are only two seasons in Canada: Winter and construction”.  With our winter season here in Ontario getting some pretty extreme cold weather conditions, it would be a kind of hard justifying exposing your home in freezing cold weather to install replacement your windows and doors unless it was to…
