Modern Home Styles in Canada

Traditional homes have long been the go-to in Canada, with designers and builders sticking to what they know best. However, the modern home style is becoming increasingly popular, with many homeowners craving a sleek, contemporary design. The modern home is defined by clean lines, lots of glass, minimal decoration and flat or shed roof lines. Contemporary homes also embrace qualities such as energy efficiency, as much natural light as possible and ventilation and air quality. Gentek carries everything you need to create that modern home look, from windows to patio doors and a large line of siding products.
