How to Prevent Homes Overheating with Centra & CTV

Choose A Top Local Window Company

Employee Ownership

If you’re looking to upgrade your windows and doors, you want to make sure you get it right. This is a big investment in your home, and doing your research and choosing a top local window company can make a huge difference. In this blog, we’re going to take a look at the reasons why.

Knowledge of the Local Climate

Everywhere is different, and you want your windows and doors to make your home as comfortable as possible. A company that has a lot of experience and understands the unique needs that arise due to the local climate is well-placed to help you. Some places may get incredibly hot in summer, others very cold in winter, and some may experience excessive rain. Living in Canada, we know how extreme the weather can be.

Centra has recently expanded into Alberta with the purchase of Supreme Windows. Along with that came a new manufacturing plant in Calgary and staff with decades of experience, making us BC & Alberta’s Window Experts!

Knowledge of Local Code

Building Codes differ depending on the country, and even the province or state. If you’re looking for windows for a new construction home, you’re going to want a company that knows everything there is to know about local code requirements. This will help you save time and money on your project.

Manufacture & Install = A Big Win

Want a top warranty for your windows and doors? Who wouldn’t? The best way to get a long, hassle-free warranty is to find a reputable local company that both manufactures and installs their products. This is a big reason why Centra is able to offer an industry-beating lifetime warranty that covers you for decades instead of just a few years. Short warranties are a huge red flag when it comes to quality and trustworthiness, so be sure to do your research in this department.

Supporting the Local Community

We all like the idea of supporting local businesses and jobs, providing there’s a suitable option when it’s time to choose. This also tends to be the greener choice as products will not need to be transported as far. Some companies ship products thousands of miles. Doing so with windows can be problematic and gives a higher chance of damage. This can affect performance and is best avoided if possible.

Thankfully when it comes to BC and Alberta, Centra ticks this box. We make and install our windows locally, and we keep our recruitment local too. We also support great local causes through our Centra Cares foundation. Because our Employees are also Owners, they go the extra mile to make our customers happy.
