Types of Window Frames
 
Aluminum Frame:
Aluminum is a thermal conductor and causes major thermal bridging, which can significantly reduce the overall R-value (insulation value) of a window unit. 
However aluminum frames require very little maintenance and are fairly strong, unless they begin to rust. They also allows condensation to build up quickly around the frame, which can cause warping in the surrounding wood frame. 

Installation of Teragren Signature Naturals Bamboo Floor in Montreal

 

The Project: Brand new Bamboo Flooring Installation

Location: Brossard, QC

Photos of the renovated space in Brossard with Teragren Signature Natural

The homeowners had decided to complete a full renovation of their condo, and approached us with a request for high quality sustainable bamboo flooring. They were looking for a supplier to provide them the exact product that they were looking for.

 

They had researched that the Moso bamboo species is the most stable bamboo available. Gladly for both of us, Teragren bamboo is made with Moso bamboo, which is harvested after achieving maturity at the age 5-6 years. Teragren is the only brand we have selected to sell for bamboo flooring, and this was decided after testing various other companies at our Montreal office. Teragren far outperformed its competition, and offers the best value between price and quality, and it has a 25 year residential finish warranty!
