WINDOWS FAQ’s - CHOOSING WINDOWS
Q: There are so many different kinds of windows. How do I pick the right ones?
A: Self-education is probably the best way to start, but you don’t have to go it alone! The All-West Glass team is always on hand to field your questions about different window options, helping you understand everything that’s available in the market today.
Q: Why should I buy windows from you instead of a big box store?
A: Windows and their many safety features and hardware/aesthetic options are our specialty, not a sideline of what we do. Our professional staff is trained to help you sort through all of the choices, and we will spend the time to make sure your order is right.
Q: Do you have window samples I can look at?
A: Yes. Each All-West location has sample window displays, cut-away samples, glazing comparison charts and product display boards showing an assortment of window trim options. Our sales staff is knowledgeable and can recommend the options that will best meet your needs.
Q: How does vinyl compare to other materials used in manufacturing windows?
A: Vinyl frames combine cost effective pricing with adequate strength, non-yellowing durability, relatively low thermal transfer and good looks, making them a popular choice for many consumers. If necessary, vinyl can be reinforced to increase its strength.
Q: I need a window in an unusual size and shape. Can All-West Glass help?
A: Of course! Our informed staff can help you find, design and manufacture a custom window of any kind, in any shape or size. Our staff is always delighted to put our expertise to work helping you get the exact window you want.
Q: Are insect screens available for my windows? What are the options?
A: Yes! Most of our window manufacturers provide insect screens with fibreglass mesh as a standard screen. However, some do give options for tougher wire mesh, or even a tighter no-see weave.
Q: How do I go about getting a quote for new windows?
A: Call your local All-West Glass location to arrange an appointment. We will visit your home, cottage or business to discuss your needs, take measurements and provide you with a local courtesy estimate.
