Victoria Strata Completes a Renovation Overhaul


The Centra Windows team is proud to be wrapping up yet another successful Multifamily Strata restoration project in Victoria.

The Royal Alexandra upgraded 78 windows and 69 patio doors using our 2900 series casement windows and 5200 series patio doors during this renovation. The best part is that they upgraded all our products to the durable Black ColourShield technology! Exterior Black frames are the latest trend and they’re here to stay. 

The homeowners were dealing with several issues as a result of their old aluminum windows. The complex is facing the water and as a result, homeowners dealt with condensation, cool drafts and inconsistent temperatures throughout the year. After deciding to upgrade with Centra’s energy-efficient windows, homeowners are already experiencing a drastic turnaround in their level of comfort and are very pleased with the transformation.

Strata Representative Doug Hildenbrand speaks about the Centra Experience.

“Centra Windows, led by our lead installer Josh and his team have done an amazing job of keeping the schedule and ensuring everyone has been pleased with their installation.

There has been nothing but good comments from any and all residents to date, especially regarding Josh, Cal, and Clayton. They all went above and beyond to make sure everyone was satisfied with the installation and pleased with their service. We already feel a change in temperature, sound and overall feeling in our homes. “

The Project featured a new insulated Hardi panel detail to cover up the old top/bottom aluminum spandrel panel. For how a window looks, you want to consider the balance and location of the frames, along with the colour of the frames. These design features can be incorporated into any upcoming project, whether it is a building or single-family home. Windows are very much an architectural feature and they will significantly contribute to the style of the exterior while creating a feeling within the home. After the windows were upgraded, homeowners in this multifamily complex have already experienced a warmer interior. With the winter season officially upon us, this element of comfort is integral. The white interior frames are a great stylistic choice and it has also brightened up their homes, providing a much more modern finish.
