Vinyl Windows

Why Our Windows

  • Energy Star - All of our windows have the ENERGY STAR Most Efficient 2020 seal of approval, providing your home with protection from the unpredictable weather.  

  • Lifetime Warranty - All windows are backed by a transferable lifetime manufacturer warranty for as long as you own your home, giving you peace of mind in knowing you are covered if you have any issues with your windows.

  • Strong and durable – vinyl windows do not require painting or staining, and modern advances in vinyl windows minimize peeling, cracking, warping, and fading. With basic maintenance, new vinyl windows will last for decades.

  • Energy-efficient – vinyl windows offer superior thermal protection compared to wood or aluminum windows. Modern vinyl windows are designed with energy efficiency in mind and commonly include energy efficiency options like multiple panes of glass, LoE coating, and insulation.  Vinyl windows keep heat in during winter and out during summer. This reduces heating and air conditioning usage for lower energy bills.

  • Low environmental impact – vinyl windows not only last longer than wood and aluminum windows, but they are also recyclable—making them a very environmentally friendly window choice.

  • Colour - We offer a variety of different colors. Windows can be painted any Gentek color available that year. 

  • Maintenance-free - Vinyl windows are nearly 100 percent scratch-free. They never have to be painted, scraped, or stained and they’re easily cleaned with soap and water. Because they’re resistant to the elements, they don’t age as fast as other windows.

  • Quiet - one major benefit to higher having windows with higher R-values is the amount of noise reduction they offer.

  • Inexpensive - Vinyl is the least expensive of all window materials, but this doesn’t mean vinyl windows are low quality. Vinyl is durable, and it won’t rust or corrode.

Window Styles

There's a variety of window types and styles to choose from and each has their own advantages. 

Window Casing

Casings are the trim that goes around your window on the inside of the house. Although they don’t play a part in making your window more or less efficient, window casings are an integral part of creating a specific look for the windows and doors in your house. This is also an area where you can express yourself and customize to make sure you get exactly what you imagined.

In modern custom windows, casings are usually made from vinyl or wood. Because, as we mentioned, casings don’t play an integral part in the performance of your windows, the choice really comes down to what kind of look you’re trying to create inside your house.

For our windows and doors installation in Toronto and Montreal areas, we mostly use the vinyl casing for its clean look and zero maintenance. There is no right and wrong way to choose casings for your home. It really depends on what you envision the final result of your replacement project to be. The vinyl casing is generally more durable and long-lasting while wooden casing allows you to create a custom look to make sure your new windows match your home ideally.

Vinyl Casing 


Vinyl casings are an ideal solution for a modern, complete look in your home. Vinyl is a great material because it does not deteriorate or rot with time. It will also perfectly match your new vinyl windows. There are also numerous options when it comes to selecting rosettes (trim corners), that will add a unique look to your windows. Although clean and polished, most vinyl casings tend to look similar and offer little in the way of customization for a pickier customer.

Wood Casing


Because wooden casings can be stained or painted, and come in a variety of height and width profiles, they can be made to match your baseboards or another moulding in your house. The drawback with wooden casings is that they have a much shorter lifespan than their vinyl counterpart. As moisture levels change in your house during different seasons, the wood expands and contracts, meaning your casings may need to be changed long before it is time to change the window.

Window Grills

Our most popular grill patterns are available on all our windows and doors.

The overall pattern varies with window size. Here shown the most popular window grill patterns, although many more patterns available.

Exterior Finishes

There are two common types of exterior finishes used in Canada:

  • aluminum cladding (capping)

  • brickmould.

Key points:​

  • Aluminum capping is used when siding and trimming custom shapes, bay and bow windows, or an older home where PVC may not work so well. 

  • Vinyl brickmould is used in full-frame replacements. Windows with vinyl brickmoulds perform better, look more modern, and have fewer problems in the future.

Aluminum Capping

The actual exterior side of the window gets covered with bent aluminum capping on the top. The bending and cutting of aluminum are done manually by the window installer.

Vinyl Brickmoulds

There are several reasons why vinyl brickmoulds are a better choice compared to aluminum capping where possible. For starters, it is all about materials. Unlike a combination of wood and aluminum, vinyl is much better at withstanding contact with moisture and the elements. Vinyl brickmoulds come in a single piece which reduces maintenance and gives moisture fewer places to get in. Aesthetically, it lends the home a richer look.



The cost of the material to trim a house with aluminum is less than buying PVC trim pieces, but the cost of installation using aluminum is higher because of the increased labor. In most cases, the total cost for either is similar.
