A rough opening is defined as a structurally stable opening in an outside wall. The opening may be surrounded by framing members (e.g., studs, lintels) or by solid material (e.g., concrete, solid wood logs). A rough opening serves the purpose of installing one or more windows or doors. The Canada Greener Homes grant initiative incentive is offered per rough opening, as opposed to per number of windows or doors installed within the opening.  For example, a bay window with three window units installed into one rough opening is eligible for only one grant. Skylights are not eligible.

ENERGY STAR certified means that the model meets or exceeds the ENERGY STAR levels. Each certified model comes with a temporary label showing that the unit is ENERGY STAR certified.
