ENERGY EFFICIENT

HOME TEAM® vinyl windows are energy efficient meeting building code and Energy Star requirements. Dual pane or triple pane glass adds to the efficiency and can be custom suited to meet your energy and budget needs. Proper selection and addition of outside and inside mouldings will also help ensure the best installation of your replacement windows; these include exterior brickmoulds and interior wood adapters or drywall returns.

STYLES & MATERIALS

Sliding, tilting, bay or bow — windows come in a variety of designs to suit your preference. If you’re looking for airflow, you may opt for a window that opens or slides, or for adding style and depth to your home design you may want a large bay window to let the light in. Windows come in standard sizes or can be custom built to suit your design. Typically available in wood or vinyl frames, contact Van Dolder’s and speak to one of your knowledgable team members about the advantages of both.

RESIDENTIAL & COMMERCIAL

Van Dolder’s Custom Exteriors sells and installs standard and custom built windows. Our expert installers can replace existing windows, building them seamlessly into your space, or provide unique design options for new builds.

We provide residential windows from top brands like LePage Millwork, Ostaco, and Armor, as well as commercial windows from Wind Spec and Tilt Co.

We recently had a custom made casement window installed in our 150-year-old Victorian farmhouse in Meaford. Both of your installers were so helpful and skilled. They were extremely polite, efficient and knowledgable, and displayed a great “windowside” manner.

Bay and Bow Windows

Bay windows are a three-panel window with a 30, 45, or 90 degree projection. They consist of a large low or high profile fixed window in the centre with either single or double hung windows on the sides, or casement style windows for ventilation. It is common to see bay windows with a padded seating area to provide a comfortable place to enjoy views. Bow windows are a series of 4, 5, or 6 equal width windows that create a radius projection from the wall. They are assembled similar to bay windows with a head and seat and any configuration of low or high profile fixed windows with ventilating single or double hung and casement windows.
