After spending all day in the office or on the job site, the last thing you really want to do is come home and sit inside. Canadian summers are beautiful but short, so we’re always looking for ways to maximize our outdoor time.But what about those days when there’s no shade from a hot sun or when a light rain shower has you running for cover. How many times have you stood in the rain watching over a lit barbecue hoping the food would hurry up and cook? You’ve worked hard for what you have, you deserve to enjoy the outside of your home, condo or cottage for more than a handful of days. Q-Exteriors awnings provide shelter from the sun and rain while complimenting your existing exterior aesthetics. Adding an awning can lower the temperature on your patio by an astounding 20F.
Eavestroughs, not the most exciting aspect of your home’s exterior! Every home has them, they’ve been designed to blend in, to go unnoticed. You don’t really think about them until a heavy rainstorm creates a miniature Niagara Falls, and water is cascading down the side of your home. Without properly installed and operating eavestroughs the exterior of your home is exposed to water, which is the primary cause of damage to a home’s structure. Water can compromise paint or get into a seam in your home’s siding and cause mold. Water pooling around the foundation of your home will find a crack, cause it to worsen and eventually enter your home’s basement. Then you have a real problem which comes with a real expense.

The windows and doors of a house are the first things an observer notices. Try this experiment next time you are out, consciously look at a house, it can be any house, yours, your neighbour’s, just a random house you are passing by. Look at it and be aware of where your eyes are drawn to and where they come to rest. It will probably be a window or the front door.People place significance on windows and doors. We have made them into symbols. Eyes are the WINDOWS to the soul, doors represent opportunity and paths to success. So if the symbols of windows and doors carry so much importance, shouldn’t the literal windows and doors of your home also be a significant choice?Windows and doors are the crown jewels of your home’s exterior. They’re how your home makes a first impression and they can say quite a bit about who lives there. They can be modern or traditional, subtle and private or open and commanding, they can say ‘this house is a castle,’ or ‘this is a home and you are welcome here.
