Creating style, security & energy savings. Protect your biggest investment… your home.
By choosing MNH Windows & Doors you will avoid hassles such as: chronic repairs and/or early replacement. Our quality windows and doors are available in a wide variety of styles and colours. We stand behind our product with a 25 year guarantee.
Whether you plan on building a new home, renovating an existing house or simply replacing some windows, there are many choices and options available. From all the choices for location, size, type, style, function, operation, material, finish, hardware and assembly, allows each and every client to customize their options to match the desired style of their home. So here’s a look at some of the options you have, especially with regard for function and operation.
Awning Windows are hinged at the top and open outward to let fresh air in while keeping the rain out. Because an awning pivots up and out, the sash effectively creates a mini awning that prevents the rain from coming through the window opening.
The window is a single sash that’s attached to a frame on one side. Hinges, or a hinge, is used to make the attachment, allowing the window to swing exactly like a door allowing for the greatest amount of circulation. But a casement window invariably only swings out.
This window will either tilt in at the top (being hinged at the bottom) or swing in (hinged along one side). A lever is used to engage or disengage the hinging system so that either the window tilts in at the top, or swings in from the side. These windows are an excellent choice where there’s a desire for an easy-to-clean window that can meet building code requirements and just be open a slight bit when some fresh air is desired.
French Casement Windows
This window provides a large opening with no vertical element to split the opening when the window is open. A French casement allows the design to have a visually consistent casement size throughout the project while also ensuring that the window opening meets the minimum standards of the building code.
Double & Single-Hung Windows
The double-hung window, along with its cousin the single-hung window, is just about the most common window there is. As its name implies, the window is made of two independent sashes that are hung in a frame. The sashes, one at the bottom and one at the top, can slide up and down within this frame or, as in the case of a single-hung window, only one sash will be movable.
Fixed Frame Windows
Fixed Frame Windows are non-venting (do not open) and are available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and styles.
Sliding Windows open from both the left and the right and open to allow for maximum air ventilation. The sliding or gliding window functions much like a double-hung window. The big difference is that the sash will slide horizontally rather than vertically. It’s as if a double-hung is placed on its side.
Entry Doors & Entry Door Systems
Entry Doors can enhance the overall look and image that is wanted for your style of home.
French Doors are often used as an entry way to a patio or deck, they also create a stylish way to divide rooms.
Sliding Doors require much less space that a hinged door, and come in many different styles to best fit your homes look.
The siding of your house is very important, most clients want a “one and done” approach to the exterior of their houses. They don’t want to repaint, restain or any of that. They want something that looks good on day one and for many years to come. And of course there’s the budget factor. This guide to exterior siding choices will help you pick one that goes the distance for your house.
Horizontal Lap Siding
Probably the most common of siding choices, horizontal lap siding can be made from wood, aluminum, vinyl or fiber cement and can be finished in an unlimited range of colors.
This siding choice is a natural fit for a colonial, or traditional-style, home as it works well with simple, boxy forms and symmetrical compositions. So whether your home is a stately colonial or a humble Cape Cod, you’ll find horizontal lap siding to be a good choice.
Board and Batten
Available in wood and fiber cement, board and batten siding is, like horizontal lap siding, a good choice for traditionally designed homes. Unlike the horizontal lines of lap siding, board and batten puts visual emphases on the vertical, creating taller-appearing houses.
Lap siding combined with board and batten on the same exterior can create a comfortable, rurally inspired look.
Available in vinyl (polymer), wood (cedar) and fiber cement, shingles (also called shakes) are well suited for traditionally designed homes. Cedar shingles are commonly used to accent areas of the exterior of your home to give it that unique aesthetic appeal.
Wood Strip Siding
Wood can also be used as a flat, horizontal siding. Sometimes installed in a tongue-and-groove configuration.
The range of heights and colours available allows homeowners to choose the look and style of home they desire.
Fiber Cement Panels
Large sheets (often 4 feet by 8 feet) of fiber cement panels create a flat, uniform surface treatment with shadow lines that reveal where the panels meet. The aesthetic tends to be more contemporary but the same approach can be used in a Prairie-style home by placing battens over the panel joints.
Available in natural or synthetic form, stucco is a great choice for exteriors with large surfaces and simple geometries. Though the texture can vary from fine to coarse, stucco is best suited where surface shadows should be minimized.
Stucco is an excellent siding choice for many home styles, such as modern and contemporary, but it’s most closely associated with the Southwestern Spanish colonial style.
Durable and requiring almost no maintenance, brick is an ideal siding material for many homes. It’s also available in many sizes, textures and colors, and it can be stacked, or laid up, in a variety of patterns.
Though more closely associated with traditional designs, brick can be used on houses ranging from contemporary to Prairie and just about every style in between.
Like brick, stone is durable and low maintenance. Available in a wide range of colors, textures and sizes, stone is adaptable to just about any aesthetic.
Traditionally, naturally quarried stone was stacked in large, heavy pieces that were quite expansive to install. To reduce costs while keeping the look of stone, some manufacturers started making stone veneers, a man-made material that is pigmented and shaped to resemble stone. Not to be outdone, the stone quarries developed technologies to cut natural stone into thin veneers. The result is lower prices and a wider range of stone materials.
Using multiple siding options can give your home the desired look your after. The example here combines Shingles at the top, Horizontal Lap Siding in the mid-section and a Stone accent along the base of the house.
Another thing to remember is that the front of your house is the focus. Using less expensive materials along the sides of your home keeps costs down and increases your curb appeal.
