If your Calgary house still has wooden windows, EnerClear can replace them with neat vinyl (PVC) window installations that will serve you for decades. Wooden window frames often look elegant depending on the type of wood, grain patterns, stain or paint chosen. However, wood window frames, like all wooden exteriors, require routine treatment to prevent rot and tear. They are expensive to maintain and are the least thermal-efficient of all types of window frames.
Again, aluminium window frames are hardly used for Canadian homes because metal naturally conducts (and thus, easily loses) heat. Sometimes, our clients opt for wood frames with aluminium on the exterior. This is more durable than wood alone, yet retains the aesthetics with the wooden portion visible inside the house.
