When building a new home you are faced with numerous decisions and choices to make including finding the right location, developing your plans as well as to make your visions of your dream home a reality. With the cost of energy continually increasing, choosing the right windows and doors is very important as they will have a major impact on the overall energy efficiency of your new home or addition. The initial purchase price of a well sealed, high efficiency window or door unit will likely be higher than a standard production unit commonly used. However, inexpensive windows and doors may end up costing you much more in higher energy costs as they are the major sources of heat loss or gain in a building. It is also important to consider the architectural style of your new home, as well as exterior finishes and colour schemes.
