Just because home shows are canceled doesn’t mean you can’t do your home renovation research! This year Duxton Windows & Doors is launching an all-new platform for bringing homeowners into the showroom… virtually!
“Many homeowners are choosing to renovate their homes this year,” comments Chris King of Prairie Windows & Doors. “With so many people working remotely, people want to make their home more comfortable, and more of an oasis. They want great insulation, natural light, and really nice-looking finishes from their windows and doors.”
Normally, when a homeowner notices it’s time to replace windows and doors, a great starting point is to visit the local home show: wander the different exhibitor booths, get the look and feel of the different products, and meet the professionals to ask some key questions.
This year, we are all learning to use technology to adapt. A virtual setting is a tremendous help in making important decisions for your home, with the professionals walking you through it, step by step. Research can be done from the comfort of your home – less the driving time, show entry fees, parking costs, babysitters, “magic brooms”… just valuable insights into design tips and best practices!
“We have shot footage in our showroom demonstrating all the different product types, performance, and options. It’s a really exciting way for people to feel as though they are right there. They can almost ‘reach out’ to touch and feel the products for themselves,” comments Al Dueck, owner of Duxton Windows & Doors.
With video footage, you can actually see a multi-point lock in action – and why this allows for better security and warmth from a swinging door. You can also see the slim, modern window frames up close, and how the style truly updates the home. You can visualize the impact of black contemporary interior finishes or warm real-wood options.
After the showroom tour, Duxton will be showing impressive Before & After examples – some substantial remodels, and other very simple replacement projects – to help homeowners understand what they can accomplish at any budget.
Lastly, Duxton will be connecting homeowners with certified installers, who are highly experienced, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. Our local installation partner is a family owned and operated business called Prairie Windows & Doors, with 15 years’ experience in the industry. Combining an excellent cold-climate fenestration product (proudly made in Manitoba!) with high quality installation provides the best effort all the way through.
