The Pacific Northwest offers some of the country’s most beautiful views, but its coastal climate can sometimes be unforgiving, particularly in the wintertime. Hail, freezing rain, fluctuating temperatures, etc., can all negatively impact the structural integrity of your windows. If you’re a homeowner in Vancouver, Victoria, Surrey, Burnaby or similar region, you’ll want to invest in windows that are large enough to admire those breathtaking vistas without compromising on durability.

No matter what the cause of the damage, you need to take steps to restore your home’s security as quickly as possible.
