At Magic, we pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best window replacement in Toronto. Read on to learn why Magic comes highly recommended by homeowners across the GTA.
1. We Provide Detailed, Educational In-Home Toronto Window Replacement Consultations
Whether you’ve made the commitment to replacing your windows and you’re unsure how to proceed, or you’re still deliberating whether or not you’d like to make changes, one of our certified project managers can help. We offer free, in-house consultations where will walk you through the window replacement process as well as the innovative ways in which we’ve updated and optimized window and door design.
By having the consultation in house, we ensure that the information we provide is tailored to your home and your unique situation. These consultations are not aimed at pressuring you to buy. Instead, we ensure that you understand the window replacement process and how our windows perform better than other replacements on the market.
2. We Design the Most Technologically Advanced, Durable Replacement Windows in Toronto
Over 40 years of operation, we’ve developed numerous patents that deal directly with making our window perform better, for longer. With that, here are some of the innovations that set us apart from other companies offering window replacement in Toronto.
The most glaring problem with outdated crank windows is that the physics behind them is flawed. Because cranks only work by moving the sash from the bottom, the top of the sash only ever reacts to this movement. Over time, this type of uneven motion will cause the sash to warp, sag and bow within the frame. This can lead to other issues if left unaddressed. Crank mechanisms will also strip, break and loosen over time. Plus, they face seasonal-specific issues such as frozen gears and hinges as well as rust.
In designing our casement windows, we created Parallex® hardware, an award-winning system that eliminates mechanically-flawed crank hardware. This system eases operation and improves the window’s durability, performance and functionality.
With Parallex® hardware, a large galvanized steel rod runs through the internal part of the sash. This rod connects to two extremely durable nylon/brass shoes that sit in parallel tracks at the top and bottom of the frame. By securely fastening the sash to these tracks, Parallex® technology forces the top and bottom of the sash to move together. This equal distribution of torque is what allows our casement windows to operate without any risk of warping, sagging, or distortion.
Hybrid Fusion Frame Technology®
Most replacement windows in Toronto are made of hollow vinyl frames. In other words, plastic. While this material is energy-efficient and cost-effective, hollow plastic is prone to damage, expansion and contraction. These designs may save you money upfront, but they can be a disaster in the long term.
Our Hybrid Fusion Frame design uses a skeleton of steel and aluminum wrapped in vinyl (U-PVC). This frame provides 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.
Slide ‘N’ Hide Retractable Insect Screens
Conventional, unmovable insect screens block natural light, obstruct views and accumulate dust, dirt and allergens. And while screens are an essential component of any operable window, there’s no reason homeowners should not have the flexibility to use them on an as-need basis. That’s why we created our patented Slide ‘N’ Hide® Retractable Insect Screens. These fully retractable screens allow homeowners to completely control the use of their screens. Plus, these screens can lead to 50% improvements in Visible Transmittance (VT) and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC).
Retractable Solar Screens and Thermal Blinds
Our Solar Screens also utilize Retractable Slide ‘N’ Hide® technology. They allow for unprecedented control over how much solar light and heat enters through a window. Homeowners can now utilize or block out the sun’s heat whenever they choose to.
Our fully-retractable thermal blinds can double the insulating value of a window. They reduce utility bills by preventing comfortable internal air from escaping the home. The blind can also completely block out light penetration, providing increased privacy and security.
3. We Customize Replacement Windows in Toronto to Suit Any Home’s Needs
Every home has slightly different needs when it comes to window replacement. As a result, we approach every replacement window project in Toronto with the goal of optimizing performance based on the unique needs and preferences of the home and those who reside there.
Custom Formulated Glass
One of the most important ways we do this is by custom-formulating all of our glass. We formulate our own glass units to meet specific solar and energy-control needs of different regions and climates. There are a variety of customizable options including glass types, gas fills, glazings and coatings (which you can read more about here). By bringing glass production in-house to ensure quality control, we are able to incorporate the most advanced technology in the industry. All that ensures that you get maximum energy efficiency and longevity out of your thermal units.
We give all our customers in Toronto the aesthetic flexibility they need to either match an existing style or make a bold statement with their replacement windows. These custom style choices include custom textures (such as wood-laminate), custom colours and custom grill patterns.
4. We are an Industry Leader in Installation, Servicing and Warranty
Designing and manufacturing innovative windows is just half the battle. At Magic, we also offer full installation services, as well as a promise to service your windows should any issues arise.
Additionally, all of our windows and doors come with an industry-leading 40-year warranty. We don’t offer a lifetime warranty because “lifetime” warranties don’t really mean anything.
The Office of Consumer Affairs (OCA) tells consumers to specifically watch for phrases such as “lifetime warranty” because there is often no legal definition associated with it. That’s why we offer you the industry’s best 40-year warranty. No more misleading information and voided warranties — simply the best product and service care on the market.
