What Affects the Cost of Window Replacement in Toronto?
No matter what your reasons are for purchasing and installing new windows, there are a number of factors to consider that can affect the cost of replacement windows in Toronto. Prices can fluctuate quite drastically depending on:
- The materials used
- The energy-efficiency capabilities
- Additional features
Because these factors can change drastically depending on the characteristics and needs of different homes, it’s important to have a trusted, reliable company assess your needs and provide a quote for the job. Committing to quality replacement windows is a significant investment, but it’s one worth making. Investing in quality now means saving time, money, and energy in the long term. Read on to learn more about the differences in pricing between low and high calibre windows and why investing in quality replacement windows is the best option for the long term.
Magic Window Innovations Produces & Installs High-Quality Replacement Windows in Toronto
When it comes to manufacturing materials, energy efficiency and additional features, Magic Window Innovations delivers some of the best replacement windows on the market. Here are just some of the innovations that allow our windows to deliver on style, performance and efficiency year after year, season after season.
Hybrid Fusion Frame Design
As opposed to inefficient materials like standalone aluminium and expensive, unreliable wooden frames, vinyl windows are cost-effective, durable, energy efficient and require very little maintenance if they are constructed properly.
For added performance, Magic Window Innovations uses a performance-modified vinyl window frame design. Our Hybrid Fusion Frame design uses a skeleton of steel and aluminum wrapped in vinyl (U-PVC). In 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. Our frames adapt to weather fluctuations, keeping the home 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.
High-Quality Double-Glazed Windows
Many companies rely on heavy triple-glazed windows that reduce light transmittance and put a strain on hardware. Our custom-formulated double-glazed windows pass the rigorous energy-efficiency standards of programs such as Energy Star and the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC).
Insulated Gas Fills
Our insulated glass units (IGUs) are filled with krypton and argon gas, which impede the transfer of heat through the window. Most IGUs on the market are separated by ¾ of an inch. Because our patented parallax® hardware can stand more pressure and external torque than these traditional crank windows, we are able to extend that space to a full inch. This means we can fill our IGUs with 25% more gas. More gas leads to more effective insulation.
Warm-Edge Window Spacers
Warm-edge window spacers are another integral part of an insulated glass unit. They act as seals which insulate the edges of the unit and keep 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 Window Innovations, 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.

Additional Performance-Enhancing Features
Patented Parallex® Hardware
When it came to design 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. They can literally “grab” air from the exterior of the home to help keep the interior cool. Our patented hardware can withstand much more stress and weight than traditional crank windows. As a result, they outperform these outdated designs in every way possible.
Retractable Insect Window 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 by allowing homeowners to fully control when and where they use their screens.
Built-in Solar Window Screens
These solar screens also utilize Retractable Slide ‘N’ Hide® technology. They 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 they choose to. With this control, users can also reduce the amount of potentially harmful UV rays can enter the home via windows.
Built-In Thermal Window Blinds
Our fully-retractable thermal blind can double the insulating value of any window. Consequently, it reduces utility bills by preventing comfortable internal air from escaping the home. Furthermore, its ability to retract allows for natural light transmittance that would have been lost with an equivalent triple-glazed window. The blind can also completely block out light, while providing increased privacy and security.
