The Latest Project by EuroLine Windows in Scenic West Vancouver

With extra safety precautions in place for the health of our employees, EuroLine is still working diligently to complete projects for expectant homeowners. We are also taking appointments for new projects in our meticulously sanitized showroom. An excellent example is one of our most recent projects in Vancouver.  This 6000 sq/ft luxury home sits high on the hills of scenic West Vancouver. Our client wished for windows and doors that allow the melding of indoors and outdoors so they might enjoy both equally. This choice is proving to be an especially valuable breath of fresh air in this time of indoor isolation. 

To achieve their goal, we worked with the client to install a range of Euroline windows and doors in their open and airy contemporary home. 

Overlooking the City and Sea

Tilt and Turn Windows Sea View

The client’s sunlit bedroom sits on a hill overlooking the city of Vancouver. Euroline tilt and turn windows and doors allow for the sunlight and fresh air to be enjoyed in full.

Luxury Doors West Vancouver

Easy to Use, Easy to Clean

Tilt and Turn West Vancouver

All the Euroline tilt and turn windows throughout the home are easy to use and easy to clean. The inside and outside panes of glass can be accessed from any floor without issue when fully open. When closed, they use a multi-point locking system to ensure optimal security. 

The Beauty of Tilt & Glide

Tilt and Glide Doors West Vancouver

Our Euroline tilt and glide doors were perfect for this light and airy home. They are also terrific for saving space as they don’t take up real estate on the inside or outside, unlike a standard swing door. Our doors are super easy to use and can be moved around with one finger. 

These doors feature gaskets on the frame and sash — so when you use a multi-point locking system to seal the door, it has gasket-on-gasket compression. This results in an incredible seal that helps conserve energy and leaves you feeling secure.

Inviting in the Light

Luxury Glass West Vancover

With a breathtaking view and incredible outdoor living area, the homeowners wanted to bring the outside inside. To accomplish this, we installed a very wide set of French doors with sidelights. As a result, the expanse of doors allows the interior to spill into the outside seating area and the backyard beyond.  Thin crisp lines accentuate the view and help give the home that clean, contemporary feeling. 

Artful Arches 

Arched Windows West Vancouver

Custom arches create a beautiful focal point in this hallway, adding a classic nuance in this otherwise contemporary home. Our Euroline team made these custom arched windows onsite with amazing results. 

European Windows West Vancouver

Bathing becomes an experience under these custom Euroline arch-top windows. They can be a bit more labor-intensive to make but, the result is totally worth it as they give the room a lovely touch of European style. 

We are happy to consult on how to get the most function and beauty out of your own new build or remodel. Contact us online or give us a call to make an appointment to explore our showroom and the possibilities EuroLine has to offer.

Everything You Need to Know About B.C. Government Window Rebates 

Looking to replace your drafty windows with new energy-efficient ones? There’s never been a better time to do it! Not only will you reap the rewards of lower energy bills and lessening your carbon footprint on the environment, but you’ll also be rewarded financially by the government of British Columbia. We’ve created the simple guide below to help you understand everything you need to know about B.C. government window rebates before investing in your home:

What are B.C. government window rebates?

With the Better Homes Rebate Program, those who install new energy-efficient windows and doors may be eligible to receive a rebate for their efforts. Unlike the previous rebate programs, where you had to install triple-pane varieties to qualify, the current program makes receiving a rebate much more achievable with basic glass upgrades. 

What are the benefits of applying for window rebates?

In 2020, you can receive up to $2000 in rebates for installing energy-efficient windows and doors or up to $100 per window or door and up to 20 windows/doors per Tier. 

Rebate Tiers

  1. Tier 1 windows/ doors: $50 per window/door (maximum $1,000). Just a note, tier 1 window and door rebates are not available in the City of Vancouver.
  2. Tier 2 windows/doors: $100 per window/door (maximum $2,000)

Your current windows or exterior doors must be replaced with program qualified products. Additionally, this upgrade will count towards an additional Two Upgrade Bonus or the Home Energy Improvement Bonus.

Who is eligible?

Make sure your property and your choice of new windows and doors are eligible for the rebate with the following guidelines:

  • The invoice date for the installed windows and doors must be on or after January 01, 2020. If your invoice is dated before this date, see the “Other” section below for FAQs on what rebates are available to you.
  • Your upgrades must be installed by a licensed contractor with a valid BC business license for the trade applicable to the installation work.
  • You must have a residential utility account with FortisBC, BC Hydro, or a municipal utility.
  • Your home must be primarily heated with:
    • Natural Gas or piped propane supplied by FortisBC
    • Natural Gas supplied by Pacific Northern Gas
    • Electricity supplied by FortisBC, BC Hydro, or a municipal utility.
    • Oil or propane not supplied by FortisBC
  • Premises primarily heated by wood or other solid fuels are not eligible.
  • You must live in an eligible home.
  • The home must have a minimum of 12 months of consecutive utility billing history.

Is there a deadline or time limit for applying for the rebates?

Government funds for the window and door rebates are limited, so you’ll need to have your new window and/or door install completed and submit your rebate application before funds run out. Additionally, you’ll want to keep the following deadlines in mind:

  • The application form for individual upgrades must be submitted within 6 months of the invoice date of the upgrade.
  • The application form for the Two Upgrade Bonus must be submitted within 6 months of the second bonus-eligible upgrade. You must complete your second bonus-eligible upgrade within 18 months of the invoice date of the first bonus-eligible upgrade.
  • The application form for the Home Energy Improvement Bonus and EnerGuide Home Evaluation Rebate must be submitted within 6 months of the date of your post-retrofit EnerGuide home evaluation. 
  • You must complete your post-retrofit EnerGuide home evaluation within 18 months of your pre-retrofit EnerGuide home evaluation.

Things you’ll need when applying for your rebate

  • Assessment records & files, including your pre-upgrade assessment and recommended upgrades, and a detailed list of completed work. 
  • All original receipts and window product model numbers.
  • Retailer invoices reflecting a detailed accounting of the number of windows installed, the window types, the window manufacturers, and the date of the installation. 
  • Proof of 12 consecutive months of energy bills from your energy provider.

Say it in French — La Belle Porte Française

In 17th century France, influenced by Italian Renaissance art and architecture, the French fashioned a new style of doors made with wood and wrought iron. Essentially, these double doors were floor length windows which usually led out to small balconies. Later, as the glass industry developed, individual glass panes were incorporated into the doors and held in by small frames. This style of door not only added visual appeal to the home, but also allowed more daylight into rooms. This innovative design was the precursor to our modern day French doors.

Today, French doors are still considered to be the ultimate in elegance and functionality.

Why Choose French Doors?

Let’s talk about some of the benefits of installing these charming doors in your home:

Flexibility

French doors are versatile — they can be inswing or outswing depending on your needs. Alternatively, you can have the “active” side on an inswing door made as a tilt and turn door. You can also combine them with fixed windows on one or both sides to create a stunning wall of windows.

Bring the Outside In

French doors allow you to open your home in a variety of ways. Use them to connect two interior rooms to each other, creating larger spaces for entertaining. Or bring the outdoors in by giving open access to your patio or garden.

Light and Space

These beautiful doors brighten your living spaces with natural light and provide lovely views of your yard. When your French doors are fully open, you can enjoy all the advantages that Mother Nature offers while making your interior feel incredibly spacious.

Performance

Modern French doors are energy efficient, secure and durable. With standard features such as double pane, LoE coatings and robust multi-point locking hardware, these doors will attract potential buyers, increase your home’s worth and help you save money on your heating/cooling costs.
