The Anatomy of a Window – And Why You Should Care

Buying new windows for your home is a huge investment but one that is definitely worth it. New windows can increase the energy efficiency of your home by helping to keep it warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Additionally, those new windows can completely update and change your space, making every room brighter, not to mention the value they will add to your property.

Before you go shopping for windows, here are some terms to familiarize yourself with. 

Sash
The movable part of the window that holds the glass in place. It consists of the rails that run along the top and bottom and the stiles on the sides.

Stiles
The major vertical supports of the window sash, located on the sides.

Rails
The horizontal parts of a sash that connect the stiles, located at the top and bottom.

Muntins (or Grille) 
The grid of the window, also referred to as the grille. Muntins can be purely decorative and just snap into place over the glass or they can help hold the glass in place, dividing the glass into sections often referred to as lites. They can be mounted between the panes of glass, especially on thermal-insulated windows. Windows with inside-mounted muntins are easier to clean than windows with muntins on the outside of the glass. 

Grilles for double-hung windows are named according to the number of squares they form (for example: four over four). Note: Muntins should not be confused with mullions which are the vertical or horizontal pieces between adjoining window units. 

Glazing
The glass in the window frame. Glazing can be single, double or triple glazed with air spaces in between. Triple glazed is the most energy efficient. Also referred to as the lite.

Apron
The horizontal piece of trim attached to the wall under the window sill. 

Sill
The shelf-like piece that runs along the base of the window frame into the interior of the house. Also known as the stool.

Casing
The horizontal and vertical molding that surrounds the window. It covers the space between the window and the wall to provide a finished look. It can be installed inside or outside the house and can be decorative or plain.

Jambs
The pieces that form the window frame and support the sash and glazing. 

Operator
The crank that allows you to open and close casement and awning windows. Newer windows often have a crank that folds in for a cleaner look.

Scissor Arm or Extension Arm
The arm attached to the window frame either at the rails or the stiles that is extended or contracted by cranking the operator handle to open or close the window.

Latch or Lock
The locking mechanism on the window. The latch not only locks the window, but also helps seal the window closed for better energy efficiency. There are even upgrades available like magnetic locks that lock windows automatically when closed.

Being familiar with the correct terminology before you go shopping or have an in-home consultation will help you understand exactly what you want. If you want to have Muskoka Window and Door Centre experts in to help you decide on the best style for your home or cottage, contact us today! 

How to Deal with Rotting Wood Window Frames

Rotting wood window frames and sills mean that your window probably isn’t performing as well as it should be, and is very likely on its last legs. A rotting wood window frame or sill isn’t a problem that you can afford to ignore for very long. In addition to your windows causing drafts to enter your home, rotting window frames can be an eyesore and, if left untreated, will surely become a home for mold.

If ignored for long enough, rotting window frames and sills could spread all around the affected area, leading to potentially widespread damage to your home. If you’re waiting on a window repair professional to inspect the problem, there are a few things you can do to alleviate the problem.

How serious is rot?
For homeowners with exterior wood window frames, rot is always a fear. No matter what measures you take, rot will eventually set in and diminish the natural beauty of wood window frames. Rot is caused by moisture coming into contact with the wood exterior over extended periods of time, weakening the frame over time and destroying it from the inside out. While rot is usually an inevitable part of wood being exposed to the elements, it’s not usually a problem that can’t be solved by a professional.

Rot is a timely issue though – failure to address a rotting window exterior can cause irreparable damage to the window frame and lead to lessen performance and mold growth, both of which can significantly affect the interior of your home. All it takes for rot to set in is a small gap that hasn’t been adequately sealed against the weather – once that happens, your windows are at risk. With time working against you, it’s important that you take the correct measures to solve the problem as soon as possible.

How to deal with rotting wood windows
The first step you need to take is to examine the extent of the rotting, as this will help you determine the most appropriate next step. Make sure that the rot hasn’t made its way to the majority of the frame – if the damage is widespread, it’s recommended that you replace the window frame completely. If the damage is contained to a smaller area, you can work to reduce the damage done.

Remove the rot from your window frame or sill using a chisel or screwdriver to dislodge it, and then use a brush to remove debris and dust from the frame. Once this is done, drill a number of ¼ inch holes into the affected wood – these holes will be used to secure an epoxy filler to the frame. When the holes have been drilled into the wood, apply a liquid epoxy consolidant to the wood. Finally, apply and pack an epoxy filler or another wood filler to the frame and mold it accordingly using a putty knife or a paint stirring stick. Once the wood filler has dried, you can go to work on sanding it down until it’s smooth and flat, and then priming and painting it as soon as possible.

While this measure can save your window frames from needing to be replaced immediately, the wood filler solution is considered to be a temporary fix. Eventually, it’s likely that rot will once again set in, and at that point, it’s recommended that you enlist the services of a window replacement professional who will be able to restore your home’s windows to their former glory, and recommend low-maintenance windows materials like vinyl that are far less susceptible to problems like rot and mold.

The window products featured in the showroom at Muskoka Window & Door Centre are manufactured with high quality materials that are built to last. To get started on your window replacement, contact Muskoka Window & Door Centre today.

How to Fix a Window Temporarily

Many homeowners know the frustration of having a window suddenly break at the most inopportune moments. Whether a stray ball has shattered your window or you experience an extreme weather event, you’ll be left with a broken or cracked window that is now exposing the interior of your home to the outdoors.

Cracked and shattered glass or broken window frames should be fixed immediately to avoid damage to your home, but it’s not always feasible for a window installation expert to assess the damage right away. While you’re waiting for a window replacement or repair, there are a few temporary ways you can minimize the damage and keep weather and pests out of your home. It’s important to note that these fixes aren’t permanent, so you’ll need to contact an expert as soon as possible so the problem can be solved professionally.

First steps to take when your window has been shattered
Once you’ve noticed that your window has been shattered or severely damaged, it’s important to keep the safety of yourself and your family in mind. If the glass has been shattered, put on a pair of heavy duty work gloves and remove any shards of glass that have made their way into your home. If there are still glass shards in the window pane, you should very quickly work to cover the broken pane or panel with plastic sheeting, cardboard, or even a heavy duty trash bag – you can use strong packing tape or a staple gun to secure this in place.

A secure cover ensures that the glass will not be hazardous to anybody inside your home, and that the problem is isolated until the glass can be removed. If you’re worried about intruders using the broken window to enter your home, it’s recommended that you use boards to cover and secure any large openings that can’t be secured using plastic sheeting or other means.

How to temporarily repair a cracked window
Windows can be cracked by impact, stress, or pressure. If you notice that your window has been cracked, you can use household items to temporarily fix it until a window replacement professional can visit your home. The first thing you should do is don a pair of heavy duty gloves and gently press the glass to ensure that it won’t fall out. If the glass feels sturdy, you can work to remedy the problem using clear packing tape. Apply the tape over the crack in the glass, and if possible, on the opposite side as well. Make sure to smoothen out the tape to ensure that there are no bubbles.

If you notice that there are small holes in your window, these can be temporarily fixed using clear nail polish. Brush the nail polish over the small holes in the window, applying it in layers and letting each coat dry between layers. This will temporarily patch the holes in your window, but will not serve as a long term fix.

Once the shattered or cracked glass has been safely and effectively addressed, you should immediately contact a window installation expert to book a replacement or repair. If they can’t visit your home for a number of days, they may advise other ways to temporarily patch or secure your broken window until they can send a professional to assess the problem. Window replacements can be complex jobs, making it important that you contact a professional to solve the problem quickly and effective to ensure that it doesn’t cause problems down the line. If your windows have been cracked, shattered, or otherwise broken, contact the window installation experts at Muskoka Window and Door Centre for professional and transparent service.

A Stunning Cottage Build Made Perfect with Bigfoot Windows

There’s nothing quite like a project that comes together perfectly. One of our proudest projects saw our team of window and door experts installing Bigfoot windows on a new property on Lake Joseph. The build, which features a modern design with almost entirely glass walls necessitated the use of large architectural windows and doors that could hold up to the elements year-round and complement the home’s modern architecture.

Bigfoot windows

Bigfoot’s line of windows and doors were the perfect match, coming in large XL and XXL custom sizes that were ideal for use in this build, and featuring thermal insulation that will stand the test of time without sacrificing comfort or functionality for the homeowners. Bigfoot Door allowed us to lend a grand feel to the property, installing massive fixed and functional windows that overlook the lake and other gorgeous surroundings.

Bigfoot Door has made it their mission to continually innovate within the window and door industry, creating high performance products that have been perfected over the last 30+ years. Bigfoot prides themselves on the superior customer support they offer to clients, which has led them to becoming one of the top window and door manufacturers in Ontario.

Big Foot windows come in different sizes

After the project requirements were laid out, the team at Muskoka Window & Door Centre went to work on installing the home’s many custom XL and XXL window and door units. We went to work installing a variety of Bigfoot products, including their fixed double-glazed windows, which can be customized to provide grand floor-to-ceiling design in any room, as well as highly functional tilt and turn windows, and premium power operated awning windows.

Insulating Your Windows for Cold Weather

If your home or cottage never seems to be warm enough during these frigid winter months, there’s a good chance that your windows are old and drafty. Older windows can turn any comfortable home into a nightmare of drafts and high heating bills during the winter, leading to homeowners trying just about anything they can to keep the warm air inside where it belongs. If you haven’t yet gotten around to replacing your old drafty windows, there are temporary measures you can take to keep your home warm this winter.

Apply caulking around your windows
Caulking is one of the most common ways to insulate your windows during the winter months, working to block drafts from entering from outside. You’ll have to begin by removing any old caulking, dirt, and grime around the window’s outer perimeter. Once the surface has been sufficiently dried, simply apply new exterior-grade caulking between your window’s frame and exterior trims boards or the siding. Exterior-grade caulking generally features silicone content that will stand up to the elements for a longer period of time.

Make smart use of window coverings
Heavy layered curtains and other window coverings like cellular shades and blinds are a stylish and effective way of reducing the effects of leaky windows. Window treatments reduce the amount of cold air entering your home through old drafty windows, adding some extra insulation to your windows. The downside to using heavy curtains and window coverings during the winter months is that on colder days you’ll be sacrificing letting sunlight into your home for insulating your windows against the entry of cold air.

Install weatherstripping around the window sash
Weatherstripping is a cost effective and easy to install solution that’ll help you close the gaps in and around your windows, serving as an air-tight barrier that will seal off many of the drafts in old windows. Weatherstripping comes in many different sizes and materials, with options that are ideal for windows of any type and size. While weatherstripping can last for long periods of time, regular window operation can cause it to wear down and detach from window sashes.

Good old fashioned insulation film will help reduce heat loss
Insulation film is the most popular way for homeowners to insulate windows during winter months, standing as a tried and true method of keeping cold air out. Insulation film is a plastic sheet affixed to the interior of your window with double-sided tape and then heated with a hair dryer to shrink it down to size and remove any wrinkles that may allow cold air to leak in. Insulation film is one of the most cost-effective ways of insulating windows, but comes with one major caveat – views are completely obstructed by the plastic film, and windows will not be accessible while the it is in place.

Draft stoppers
Another affordable but slightly less effective way of insulating windows for cold weather is to make use of draft stoppers. These can be quickly installed on the bottoms of windows and doors to lessen the flow of air leaks. Draft stoppers come in various shapes and sizes, acting as a cheap and dirty way to keep your home warmer until the spring. If your old drafty windows are making your winters more uncomfortable than necessary, it’s time for you to replace them. The winter is the perfect season to book your window replacement, as businesses become busier in the spring and summer, making it difficult to have your windows replaced before the cold weather comes around again.

How to Eliminate Winter Window Condensation

Interior window condensation is one of the most annoying things to accompany the arrival of the heating season, obstructing the view to the outside and causing homeowners to constantly have to wipe down their windows. During the cold winter months, some homeowners will find that condensation is produced on the inside of windows. This problem can be extremely damaging not only to the affected windows, but to everything around it. If you’re plagued by winter window condensation, there are a few ways you can reduce or eliminate this annoying problem.

What is interior window condensation and why is it a problem?
Condensation happens when water vapor or moisture in the air is turned into liquid water. It happens after interior air that has been able to warm up and hold more moisture cools down and contrasts, reaching a saturation point where the excess moisture turns into liquid water.

Condensation happens on windows so regularly because the warm air circulating around your home makes contact with cold window panes, causing the air to quickly cool and reach its saturation point, releasing excess moisture as liquid on the surface of the window. Condensation regularly happens on window exteriors, especially during more humid summer months – that condensation is considered to be normal, whereas excess interior window condensation is not.

Condensation on window interiors can quickly become a major problem for homeowners, as it means that there may be excessive moisture in your home. This can eventually cause problems that include mold growth on and around the window, as well as visible rot and decay around the windows. The unchecked spread of mold, rot, and decay can cause damage to your home and to the health of those within it. If this is not remedied, it can cause irreparable damage to the windows and surrounding parts of the home, demanding costly repairs.

Monitor internal humidity levels and adjust accordingly
One of the first steps in eliminating window condensation is to monitor the humidity in your home with a hygrometer, a device that allows you to easily gauge internal humidity levels. Being able to determine how much humidity is in your home is key to deciding how to tackle the problem. If your home contains higher than normal humidity levels, purchasing a dehumidifier is recommended, as it will regulate internal humidity levels which has been shown to reduce internal condensation on windows. If you have a modern thermostat in your home, it may come with a built-in humidity meter.

Lower the temperature
While it may seem counterintuitive to lower the temperature during the winter months, doing so will go a long way to reducing buildup of condensation on windows. Warm air in your home contains more moisture, so lower the thermostat by even a degree or two will greatly reduce its ability to carry excess moisture. If you can spare a couple degrees, lower the temperature inside will reduce some of the humidity and condensation.

Improve ventilation and seal leaks
Improving the ventilation is another major way to reduce condensation on windows. To do this, homeowners can run fans while using appliances like ovens or dryers, or even during showers. Unblocking covered or blocked vents is another way to improve the ventilation in your home – this can be done by moving furniture away from vents and cleaning ventilation covers to ensure that air can easily move around your entire house. Vents should be cleaned if you notice large amounts of dust, as dust can impair ventilation and reduce airflow.

Changing filters and monitoring filter health is another recommendation to improve air quality and ventilation. It’s also recommended that you seal any leaky ducts that may exist in your home, as these leaks are responsible for a huge amount of air loss from your home. Fixing these leaks can improve the flow of air and improve air circulation, reducing humidity and condensation. With the right strategy, your windows can be free of condensation this winter. The winter season provides the perfect opportunity for homeowners to install new windows in your Muskoka home or cottage. Not only will upgrading windows reduce interior condensation, they also work to prevent energy loss, keeping you more comfortable and increasing your home’s overall energy efficiency.

Cozy Window Coverings for Winter

Canadians everywhere are bracing for another long, cold season. During winter months, you’re going to want to do whatever you can to make your home or cottage a little warmer so that you and your family can be comfortable. Your home’s windows play a big role in keeping you warm during the winter, but they can be easy to overlook. A great deal of heat can be lost through your windows if the proper precautions aren’t taken, giving you higher hydro bills along with frosty toes. One of the best ways to reduce heat loss and keep your home comfortable throughout the winter is to use the right window coverings for the season.

Why use window coverings to keep your home warm?
During the winter months, older windows are responsible for losing up to 30% of a home’s heating energy. One of the most effective ways to combat this heat loss (other than having new high-performance windows installed) is by using window coverings, which work to insulate your windows and reduce the amount of heat loss, keeping the heat inside your home where it should be. The effectiveness of your window coverings will depend on what type of covering it is, and how effectively it’s used.

What kind of window coverings work best?
One of the most important elements of an effective window covering is fit – in order to act as a barrier to avoid heat loss, a window covering needs to fit as close to your window as possible. The most effective type of window covering for the purpose of keeping you warmer in the winter months are cellular shades, which are designed to fold up like an accordion, and usually sit at the top or bottom of your windows. These coverings are most effective because of their honeycomb-like cross-sections that act as an insulating barrier against energy loss. Cellular shades can reduce heat loss by up to 40% in the winter months, saving you money on utilities and keeping you more comfortable.

Window quilts are another great way to reduce heat loss throughout the winter months and have the distinct advantage of fitting snugly against windows and costing less than cellular shades. While curtains and drapes don’t provide a snug fit against your window, they can reduce heat loss by up to 10%. Traditional shades and blinds also work to reduce winter heat loss, though they are less effective than cellular shades, window quilts, and curtains.

Window coverings are most effective when they’re used strategically by homeowners. The majority of homeowners keep their window coverings in the same position every day, which can actually work against you in the winter months. Opening your coverings on sunny days will let natural light into your home, maximizing the amount of heat in your home. Closing window coverings in the evenings will trap some of this heat inside, lowering the demand on your heating system.

Protect your cottage this winter with security shutters
If you’re planning on shutting down your cottage for the winter, you should strongly consider investing in security shutters that will keep your belongings safe and secure throughout the season. Pentagon security shutters are the best way to ensure that your cottage is protected and your belongings are safe while you’re away, keeping out intruders and protecting your home against extreme weather. Pentagon’s low-maintenance security shutters are custom made to fit your windows perfectly, featuring easy-to-use manual or remote control operation that will restore your unobstructed view to the world around you.

Should I Replace Windows Before Winter?

The cold winter months are on their way, forcing Muskoka cottage owners to consider whether they should replace their windows before winter arrives in cottage country. Replacing windows during the winter is possible, but is obviously easier in the fall. And if you wait until spring, installation slots get booked quickly.

Install windows as soon as possible for immediate results
It’s a good idea to plan your window installation before the cold weather and snow arrive. There’s a chance that your old Muskoka windows aren’t performing as well as they once did, letting in drafts, moisture, and affecting your overall comfort. New energy-efficient windows will save you the most money in the winter, so starting now ensures you get the best use out of your windows.

New windows will make your home or cottage more comfortable by regulating the temperature inside, keeping it nice and toasty inside the house during the colder months. New windows will also protect your home against drafts, which saves you in energy bills because your furnace won’t be running as frequently. Taking a proactive approach to having your new windows installed will ensure your comfort throughout the winter, and help you save big on heating costs.

Other complications involved with winter installations
While installation experts take care to reduce energy loss when installing new windows in the winter, some energy loss will still occur. This happens when old windows are removed in order to make room for the new window being installed.

To reduce energy loss, many window and door installers will do their best to install one window at a time. They will take measures like closing doors in the room where work is being done and closing off adjacent areas.

Winter installations will also require you to clear the area around windows, ensuring that snow and other debris won’t get in the way of your installation professional. This means taking the time to shovel snow away from your house, requiring much more effort than simply clearing debris from around your windows.

Winter installations are still possible
If you don’t have the time to book your installation prior to the winter season, or discover that your windows need to be replaced mid-winter, worry not – window installations are possible throughout the winter.

Understand that winter isn’t the ideal season for window installation, and that your contractor makes take additional time in order to get the job done correctly. Inclement weather is more common during the winter, so this may also pose complications during winter window replacement projects. Installation experts will do their best to reduce energy loss from your home, and finish the job as quickly as possible given the circumstances. While winter window replacement isn’t ideal, it’s far from impossible.

Should You Replace Your Windows Yourself?

Choosing to install replacement windows in your Muskoka cottage or home brings with it a wealth of benefits, including reduced energy bills and increased energy efficiency, a quieter home, and added aesthetic appeal. It’s often tempting for homeowners to choose to install their own replacement windows, but doing so can sometimes result in poor or improper installation, leading to reduced window performance. It’s important to not take this decision lightly because it can make such a profound difference in the look and performance of your windows. Before you choose whether to install your new windows yourself or hire the services of a professional, it’s recommended that you consider the following.

The argument for DIY window replacement

If you have experience in home renovations, you might naturally assume that you have the skills needed to replace your own windows. The process appears simple, especially if you already have the tools needed to get the job done. Doing your own installation will help you avoid expenses incurred by hiring a professional, as well as time spent looking for and communicating with an installation professional.

Before deciding to go the DIY route, take into account the amount of time you might save yourself by hiring a professional, and how complex the overall job is – how many windows are being replaced? What kind of windows are being installed? Do you know what to do if anything should go wrong during the installation? Installing your windows will also see you foregoing any installation warranty, which is another major consideration. You may quickly come to find that hiring a professional will be an easier, more time-consuming option.

The case for professional window replacement

A professional window installer is far more convenient than attempting to do it yourself, saving you countless hours of planning and labor, and the potential embarrassment that can come with a botched installation. It’s also important that your windows be installed properly to ensure that drafts don’t let air escape from or enter your home, and that moisture is controlled. An installation expert will be able to detect any problems in your new windows and will know how to effectively seal them against the elements.

Window and door companies are well-versed in a wide variety of window types and have handled complex installations in the past, greatly increasing the chances that your installation will be correct the first time. A proper installation free of drafts will save you in future utility bills, as your furnace and air conditioner won’t have to keep up with fluctuating temperatures in your home. If your windows are faulty or mistakes are made in the installation process, your installation warranty will cover the work needed to fix the problems – performing the installation yourself won’t afford you this luxury. Your professionally installed windows will perform flawlessly for years to come, and you’ll be thanking yourself for not taking the much riskier DIY route.
