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.

Replace Old Cottage Screen Enclosures with the Weatherwall

Advice from Muskoka Window Systems Experts

“It’s time to stop covering up those old screen enclosures in your porch or Muskoka room with heavy plastic or ugly shutters every time the season changes”, says Randy Hodges at Muskoka Window and Door Centre. “When you invest in Weatherwall window systems, you will enjoy unobstructed views with maximum ventilation and protection from the elements at your fingertips. There’s no need to install Plexiglas. Realizing the benefits of Weatherwall, many home and cottage owners have asked our expert installers to help them upgrade to this convenient and smart-looking window system”.

Weatherwall Cottage Enclosure

Advantages of a Weatherwall screen enclosure:

  • It converts easily from a screen to a weatherproof haven (and vice-versa) at the press of a button. The four-track system, consisting of four panels nestled one behind the other and each in its own track, can be pushed all the way to the top, down to the bottom or in the middle—just the way you want.
  • It is customized to fit the unique dimensions of your window or door openings; high ceilings and extra-wide or tall windows and doors are no problem at all. You also have a choice of four colours for the window frames with an option of clear or tinted glass (in bronze or Muskoka blue).
  • Weatherwall can be installed almost anywhere—in porches, sunrooms, balconies, vestibules, gazebos, cabanas, or even a mobile home.
  • Its heavy-duty construction withstands normal wear and tear to deliver years of trouble-free service.
  • The elasto-vinyl window glazing withstands any challenge and returns to shape if pushed or stretched.
  • It’s easy to maintain and can also be removed for cleaning.
  • An extended 10-year warranty provides you with complete peace of mind.
