Decisions When Building New Or Working On A Major Renovation

When quality matters partnering with a window and door company will make a huge difference to your design looks – inside and out – your energy consumption, and the life of the products you choose – all of which may impact your budget – but will offer lasting peace of mind and the quality and significance of the various views and looks of your cottage home.

When Investing in New Windows and Doors you will want to Investigate:

  • key features and benefits of the type and style of the products you choose.
  • What is involved in the installation process? How important is it that your window and door supplier are experts in the timely installation of the products based on what is often a moving target of building completion dates? What is actually included in the installation process? Your builder or general contractor will require expert installation for the simple reason that warrantees are voided if installs are not professionally done. Muskoka Window & Door Centre installers are all professionally ‘supplier trained’ by our partners. We know cottage country and the many pitfalls involved in building new and structural renovations.
    In short – timing can be a deal breaker. While the investment you are considering is significant, it is an over sight to cut budgets on windows and or doors, which, in the long run provides huge energy savings and the various views that you will enjoy looking out, on your special landscape. Knowing that you are working with a neighbouring company that has local cottage country experience, is a significant factor. Don’t be fooled. All of our installers are full time employees who are specially trained to finish your home or cottage to exacting standards.
  • Quality products – through our 35 years specializing in the Window and Door business, we have developed specialized partnerships with suppliers that we can count on to deliver products we can recommend to a range of budgets and quality.  Consider that five to ten to fifteen years hence, you’ll still enjoy the decisions made together based on the options, final designs, and operating products chosen. In short, all of our partner/ suppliers have time-tested warrantees that will give you peace of mind when such a significant part of your build budget is involved.
Builder / Architect / Contractor Relations

Often the relationship with your builder, architect, or general contractor and your Window/Door supplier is an over looked consideration in the planning of a new build or a renovation. We work closely with many builders, design specialists, and contractors who are familiar with our specialized scope of product offerings and installation procedures. Introducing your building partner to us can save time and even budget in this process. Whether investing directly with us, showing us your plans or having your professionals contact us, it is still a very good idea to visit our showroom to see and operate the various products we offer. This is time extremely well invested, that will pay dividends long after your build is complete and you are looking out on your lake, river or stand of trees. One of our many commitments to you is to simplify this process for you.

Our Partners

We do have options, and on occasion, these options can be somewhat overwhelming. By visiting our showroom in Muskoka, an appointment with our experts can save you time, because we can help ‘drill down’on the basics of your style and design wants and needs. We’ll also demonstrate the operation of the various windows available today. You’ll be somewhat surprised and amazed to see the new technologies available today, especially in the large category door openings, and new security feature offerings.

Randy Hodges:“When building new or doing a major renovation, you’ll want a good selection of quality options to make an informed decision. At Muskoka Window And Door Centre, we listen to what qualities are important to you and we’ll provide the best solutions for your project.”

How To Choose The Right Windows For Your Home Or Cottage

5 Tips From The Experts At Muskoka Window And Door Centre

Your Cottage Country windows do more than provide you with a view to the outside. They play a critical role in maintaining comfortable indoor temperatures and the energy-efficiency of your home or cottage. So how do you choose a window when you really don’t know anything about them? “It happens all the time.” says Jeff Hodges – partner at Muskoka Window and Door Centre: “Our clients, whether owners, builders or architects, need and expect assistance.  There are many excellent options for both windows and doors, and we help with that.  We work hard to simplify the decision making process.”

Here Are 5 Tips For Our Experts To Help You Make The Right Choice:

    • Select the right window material: Windows are available in a wide variety of materials. Understanding the pros and cons of each type will help you make an informed decision.
      • Wood: Offers the best insulation but is also high-maintenance
      • Vinyl: An affordable alternative to wood, with increased energy-efficiency when paired with high performance glass options
      • Aluminum: A practical choice for areas of high humidity as well as hurricane-prone areas
      • Clad-wood: A low-maintenance exterior  of vinyl or aluminum combined with a wood interior that is resistant to temperature transfer
      • Fiberglass Composite: Energy-efficient, strong and durable with enhanced resistance to twisting and warping. Eco friendly and is virtually maintenance free.


  • Determine your window style: Your choice of windows influences the curb appeal of your home or cottage as well as its functionality. A variety of styles including casement, awning, hung, fixed/picture, sliders, and tilt and turn, etc. allows you to choose the best fit. Many property owners combine multiple window styles to complement the different areas of their home. For instance, if you want a view but not necessarily ventilation, a fixed/picture window is ideal. On the other hand, if you like to leave your bedroom or living room windows open for fresh air, casement windows offers both easy operation and cleaning. A choice of glass, grilles and colours allows you to further personalize each style.

Randy Hodges – Partner Muskoka Window And Door Centre:  “Awnings are back with the renewed demand for natural airflow. The contemporary design world has rediscovered awning windows for great viewing and continued ventilation even in inclement weather. The top hinging action provides rain protection and ventilation. Big view fixed bottom units with manual or motorized operating top units brings natural ventilation back without compromising the view.”

Jeff Hodges on choosing the right window:  “Form and function are two concepts that need to come together to choose the right window for the right application. For example an out swinging casement window is not practical over stairs or a short deck where people could walk into them. But casements have maximum view and ventilation for anywhere else on your home or cottage. We can help with those designs.

  • Choose energy-efficient windows: As an important component of your building envelope, windows impact indoor temperatures and consequently your heating and cooling expenses. By ensuring your windows are energy efficient, you will be able to improve the comfort of your home or cottage without increasing utility bills. Look for ENERGY STAR® qualified windows that are tested and certified by The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) for their R-value and visible light transmittance. To learn more about ratings for energy-efficient windows, click here.
  • Value for money, rather than price: Don’t base your selection solely on price. The most expensive window doesn’t necessarily provide you with the best protection and performance, while a cheap product will likely need replacement soon and may even cause damage to your home. Look for a trusted manufacturer with a proven track record. Many homeowners choose Andersen windows for their style, performance and durability. Additionally, Andersen’s energy-efficient windows are backed by the most comprehensive warranty on the market, providing their customers with absolute peace of mind.
  • Hire an experienced installer: Many operational problems are caused by improper installation techniques and inexperienced installers. To protect your investment, look for dealers like Muskoka Window And Door Centre that have manufacturer-trained window installers on their team, so you can expect efficient, safe and timely window installation.

Visit us at Muskoka Window and Door Centre to see and evaluate your options. As an official supplier of many trusted brands, including Andersen windows, we offer a full range of quality products. Our knowledgeable and helpful staff are always happy and willing to help. We can assist you in selecting and installing the best products for your cottage or home.

Premium Products And Service For Your Home And Cottage

Door and window installation is a highly specialized job. Many common performance issues are caused by improper sizing and faulty installations. In addition to selecting a quality product from a trusted manufacturer, always ensure that your installers have the right training and experience. It will help secure a longer lifespan for your investment.

Advantages Of Skilled Door And Window Installation
  • Saves time and money: Trained professionals are more efficient and install doors and windows quicker. This helps builders, architects and homeowners complete projects on schedule. Reduced installation time also means lower cost.
  • Fewer performance issues: Installation quality not only impacts performance but the lifespan of your windows and doors as well. This begins with correct sizing and fit. Proper alignment of your new doors or window replacements, ensures they operate seamlessly now and in the years to come. Qualified installers will make sure that your doors and windows fit right, stay secure and are properly sealed. This helps avoid injuries and product damage as well as improves energy efficiency and indoor comfort. Detailed attention, like concealing fasteners and screws makes your windows and doors look good inside and out.
  • Avoids leaks and property damage: Inexperienced and incorrect installation is among the main reasons for leaking doors and windows. This reduces the lifespan of your products and can cause substantial damage to your beautiful wood or carpeted floors. Floor replacement expenses aside, you are also faced with the risk of mold and the additional cost of getting rid of this health hazard.
  • Protects your warranties: Using the wrong products can damage your new doors and windows, and nullifies their warranties. One of the most common examples is misuse of low expansion foam products resulting from the lack of knowledge on the part of homeowners and contractors. Manufacturer-trained technicians at Muskoka Window and Door Centre will prevent these unnecessary complications.

The installation team at Muskoka Window and Door Centre is manufacturer-trained to ensure precision perfect installs for your cottage or home. Intensive onsite training familiarizes us with how the products are manufactured and the finer nuances of the installation program. Our technicians are also engaged in continuous education to be updated on the latest technology. How does this benefit you as our customer?

Professional installation and finish enhances product lifespan

“When we are doing a replacement installation on a cottage or home, our team of specialists are experts at caulking all the products we sell.  This may not seem a significant item, but when you see a poor job, it stand out like a sore thumb, and often that installation will not last.  The product will leak air or water.  Our experts will not allow that to happen,” assures Rob Kennedy

Saves thousands of dollars in repair and replacement

“Often, when we are called in to replace and repair a poor install, we find patio doors not leveled, or the head of the door has been ‘over foamed’.  The foam expands and the door is crushed. No surprise that the door will not slide. Sounds simple, but it is this type of experience that can save thousands of dollars,” adds Rob.

Reduces common performance issues

“Smart home tech has evolved into our business.  We have many new and innovative products such as motorized drop down windows, doors with concealed screens built right into them and wireless sensors for security locks.  These are great examples of why you want experts installing these products.  Not only must they look perfect from inside and out, within the architecture of your building, but they must operate with ease, smoothly and efficiently,” Rob explains further.

Enhances customer confidence and peace of mind

“Our suppliers also invest in our people every year to ensure we know exactly what is involved with installation procedures.  You might be surprised how critical it is for the products to arrive at the site at the right time, with our crew arranging a complex install high up on a granite face, or within a heavily treed lot.  Make no mistake, experience matters. This is a key reason whycottage country builders, contractors and architects count on us.  It’s very difficult to put a price on that confidence and comfort knowing that what we install is going to endure the Canadian climate. It’s a generational experience.  We have almost thirty years of satisfied customers to generate that confidence,” says Jeff Hodges.

Our business is satisfied customers

“This is a significant investment that we make in our people. Products are changing, with more sophisticated technology and component parts, our installation team members must be on the leading edge of installation techniques.  One aspect of our business is selling windows and doors, but professional,expert installation is crucial to the completion of the work.  Our business is satisfied customers,” says Randy Hodges.
