Planning upgrades for your strata or multifamily complex? We know how much work is required and how stressful it can be, and eventually, you're left with no choice. At Centra Windows, we’re about making the process as smooth and easy as possible for you and all the building residents. Let’s take a look at how we do that and why Centra is the right choice for your project.
Of course you want to see your multifamily renovation project succeed, and the best way to do that is to bring Centra in early. Our experts are well versed in all aspects of this process. They can help with depreciation reports and ensure your strata is getting the best value for money. Thanks to Centra’s diverse experience with building envelope remediation, they can also help with Building Envelope Condition Assessments and determining the likelihood of uncovering any unexpected problems. If there are any nasty surprises and the project ends up being bigger than anticipated, we’re definitely the team you want on your side.
It may be in the name, but we aren’t just a window company. We can also do doors, balconies, and other exterior remediation work without bringing in subcontractors. We don’t even use other companies for our scaffolding and do it all ourselves. This makes things far easier on strata homeowners as we’ll be the sole point of contact and take responsibility for the whole project. It also means you’ll see consistency in terms of workmanship and quality. We’re even able to deal with hazardous materials such as asbestos ourselves.
Because we’re a one-stop shop and do everything ourselves, we’re able to offer an industry-leading warranty that gives homeowners much-needed peace of mind. This has been a huge selling point for stratas. Renovation projects on this scale are always going to be costly, so stakeholders rightfully want assurances that the new products will last a lifetime and any service issues can be resolved without complications or finger-pointing between different companies.
Centra has almost four decades in the industry. We started our strata work because of leaky condo issues in the late 80s and early 90s, and our windows and doors are designed and built specifically for the BC climate. We’ve all seen how hot and cold it can get, and many BC stratas have old windows. We’ll replace them with ones that’ll keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Modern window technology makes a much bigger difference than most people realize.
Another significant benefit that Centra Windows bring is noise reduction. As our neighbourhoods become busier and more built up, noise can become a serious problem for strata homeowners. Old windows do next to nothing to block sound, but Centra’s high-performance windows can make a major difference and bring peace and quiet.
We can also work while the building is occupied, limiting disruption to homeowners as much as possible. Because our local teams are Employee Owners with a stake in the company, they go the extra mile to clean up as they go and keep customers happy.
Centra has worked on individual strata units in the past, but it’s better to upgrade the building in one go. You’ll see considerable cost savings when multiple units are done at once. That’s not to mention the fantastic savings homeowners will see throughout the year. As mentioned, our windows and doors are highly energy efficient and keep you comfortable all year round. This means a huge reduction in the need for heating and A/C, and much lower energy bills. We also have fantastic financing plans for large-scale projects.
These are some of the reasons why we’re trusted by BC property managers, strata councils, and owners and why they constantly rate their Centra experience so highly.
