The windows in your house or building are the “windows” to your property in both literal and figurative sense. They are indicators of your property’s elegance and overall value. They also speak a lot about you and your taste as homeowners. A rundown window reflects on the poor state of your property while a shiny glass window exudes luxury and sophistication.
Glass provides a unique combination of excellent beauty and functionality. Its clarity and transparency make it a premium material for your windows.
Top Reasons Why Kelowna Homeowners Choose Glass Windows for Their Homes
- Glass windows provide strong protection from external and natural elements. Glass, the major window material, is resistant to weather and can hold up to the effects of wind, sun, or rain.
- They allow natural light into the house brightening the rooms and boosting the mood of the occupants. Glass transmits as high as 80% of available natural sunlight, which can lower electricity bills.
- They provide insulation from extreme heat and cold. This benefit increases, even more, when low-E glass is used. In the winter, it prevents heat from escaping through the glass, helping keep the home more comfortable. In the summertime, it keeps your home cool as it helps block radiant heat and ultraviolet rays.
- They are energy efficient. The low-E glass used in glass windows keeps the temperature in the house consistent by reflecting the interior temperatures inside.
- They enhance the aesthetic beauty of homes, even more, complement houses’ architectural style lending them exquisite visual appeal, and restore your home’s curb appeal.
- They provide noise insulation. Sealed glass panes transmit very little sound.
- With the glass’ smooth, glossy surface, glass windows are dustproof and can be easily cleaned.
- Glass windows, with all of their benefits, add value to homes.
Signs that Your Glass Windows Need Upgrading from a Kelowna Glass Window Installation Company
Here’s a list of warning signs you need to be aware of before you start to upgrade your Kelowna glass windows according to experts.
Moisture between the panes of glass is a telltale sign of seal failure. While you might be able to replace the glass panes, in most cases, the windows will need to be replaced to fix the issue.
Old windows often become drafty over time. The comfortable air from inside your home escapes or you might feel the air from outside in your home when standing close to the windows. This can result in higher energy bills. Nearly one-third of your cooling and heating costs come from energy loss from old, drafty windows.
Outdated windows are often made up of a single pane that provides little protection from the air outside. Windows are hot to the touch during warmer weather and cold to the touch during colder weather.
Difficult to Operate
It is frustrating to have windows that don’t operate as intended. Windows should be quick and easy to operate.
Outdated and Unsightly
Even when they are functional, windows that are more than 15 years old or are original to your home should be upgraded to boost your home’s curb appeal.
Cracked Window Panes
Even if cracked glass can be fixed by replacing just the glass, old single-pane windows can cause bigger problems for your home’s energy efficiency. It is advisable to upgrade to modern glass windows for better energy efficiency which can save you more in the long run.

Our windows are made from the highest-quality glass and other materials from industry-leading manufacturers. Whatever your design preference is for your Kelowna glass windows, we have them.
We fabricate and install different types and makes of glass windows including the following:
Single-hung windows. Also known as single-sash windows, they have a lower operable sash and an upper, fixed sash. The bottom part of the window slides up and down, while the top part remains stationary. Single-hung windows provide ventilation through the bottom sash.
Double-hung windows. The lower inside sash in a double-hung window slides up, and an upper outside sash slides down, improving air circulation and making full screens ideal.
Horizontal roller or slider windows. They are designed with tracks at the top and bottom of the frame and work as a sliding glass door, opening and closing horizontally while providing uninterrupted vertical views and airflow.
Awning windows. They are windows that are hinged at the top and open outward. The sash presses against the frame, so they close very tightly.
Casement windows. These window types are hinged on one side, and let you open them outward through a crank. They allow unobstructed views and when fully open allow good ventilation and easy cleaning.
Jalousie windows. Jalousie windows are composed of parallel glass set in a frame. They are exceptional for ventilating your house throughout the year. In comparison to glass pane windows, however, they provide less security.
External glass walls. Also called curtain walls, they are an outer covering of a building in which the outer glass walls, non-structural materials that they are made of, are utilized only to keep the weather out and the occupants in.
Picture windows. They are fixed windows that are used where lighting but not ventilation is important. They’re airtight and are available with unusual shapes or in decorative glass accents.
Impact windows. They are windows designed to withstand high winds and impact from objects. They are less likely to shatter, even from direct blows. This is made possible with the use of a combination of a heavy-duty frame with impact-resistant laminated glass.
Do not worry that you do not have an ample idea about their differences. Our Kelowna glass window installation experts will enlighten and guide you should you need new glass windows installed in your home or business place.
