Project Name: Gordon Neighbourhood House
Address 1019 Broughton St, Vancouver, BC V6G 2A7
General Contractor – Heatherbrae Builders
Window Type: Ultra Series with 2 1/4″ renovation wider flange
Building Exterior: Chocolate brown stucco
When to use a wider flange: We went with our 2 ¼” Brickmould flange in our Ultra Series to match the already existing white trim around the exterior of the building. The unique details on our brickmould flange helps even out the solid look of the stucco. The final result, is an atheistically pleasing and eye catching home.
