What Affects the Cost of Window Replacement in Toronto?

Window replacement prices in Toronto can fluctuate quite drastically depending on:

  • The materials used
  • The energy-efficiency capabilities
  • Additional high-end window features
  • The level of service your installer provides

Quality replacement windows are a significant investment, but they are worth it. Investing in quality now means saving time and money in the long term. Yes they will cost a little more upfront, but you’ll see lasting savings – both on energy bills and when you don’t have to revisit this again in few years.

A Unique Hybrid Window Frame

At Magic, we use a performance-modified vinyl window frame design. The design uses a skeleton of steel and aluminum wrapped in vinyl (U-PVC). This way, we provide the best of both worlds: the strength and durability of steel and aluminum with the efficiency of high-performing U-PVC.

This is key for the extreme weather fluctuations in the Toronto region, keeping homes better insulated year-round.

We’ve also improved on traditional frames with our ultra-slim design, which reduces the frame’s size and maximizes the glass surface to create a more contemporary look.

Top of the Line Energy Efficiency

You can have the most stylish windows in the world, but if they aren’t energy-efficient, they aren’t worth it. That’s because you can save anywhere from $125 to $340 annually on your energy bills with the right windows.

Let’s cover some key components of an energy-efficient window:

a) Low-E Coated Window Glass

Low-e coating is a transparent, very thin coating added to the window’s glass. It helps to control the passage of solar radiation through the window and into the home.

Low-e coatings can be customized for the right performance for specific regions! In Toronto, where the weather changes drastically from hot to cold over the year, a balanced Low-E formula such as the ClimaGuard 70/36 is best. This design allows you to take advantage of the sun’s heat in the winter, while not having it be overwhelming in the summer months.

b) Insulated Window Filling

In the cooler seasons, your windows and doors are tasked with the essential job of keeping cold out and keeping the heat in. The energy efficiency metric associated with this job is U-Factor, which ultimately describes how well your windows can insulate your home. Gas fills can improve this metric!

Noble gases such as krypton, argon, and xenon are used to fill the space between the glass panes in your window units. The addition of heavy gases allows the unit to resist air transfer and retain heat. Most manufacturers will fill just ½ – ¾ of an inch of space with gas. With our innovative approach to glass formulation, we’re able to extend that gap to a full inch. This means we can fill our units with 25% – 50% more gas, and more gas means better insulation.

c) Warm-Edge Window Spacers

Warm-edge window spacers act as seals that insulate the edges of the window, keeping the glass panes apart from each other. These spacers are essential to a window’s ability to remain energy efficient over the long term.

At Magic, we take this technology further. We use a duralight soft edge spacer made of a 4-layer material that naturally expands and contracts with any movement of the unit. This makes seal failure virtually impossible.

Extra Performance-Enhancing Features

a) Patented Hardware

When it came to designing our casement window, we decided to do away with outdated crank hardware. Our patented parallex® hardware turns outdated casement windows into crankless feats of engineering. Instead of operating the sash with a crank, our revolutionary parallex® hardware allows homeowners to swing the sash outward by sliding it seamlessly along a horizontal axis.

b) Retractable Insect Screens

Standard insect screens block light, obstruct views and can become clogged with dirt and allergens over time. Built with our patented Retractable Slide ‘N’ Hide® technology, our fully retractable insect screens address these issues but also allow homeowners to fully control when and where they use their screens.

c) Built-in Solar Screens

Our retractable solar screens allow for complete control over how much light and heat enters through a window. The retractable option lets homeowners let in or block out the sun’s heat whenever you choose to. With this control, users can also reduce the amount of potentially harmful UV rays that can enter the home via windows.

d) Built-In Thermal Blinds

Our fully-retractable thermal blind doubles the insulation on a window. The blind can also completely block out light, while providing increased privacy and security. Plus, it reduces utility bills by preventing internal air from escaping the home.

Premium Customer Service

We understand that investing in high-quality replacement windows is a significant investment. That’s why we offer free, no-hassle consultations to quell homeowner concerns and fully explain the replacement window process.
