Brantford, Ontario, was founded on the banks of the Grand River by Joseph Brant, a Mohawk chief who led his people during their early years of settlement in Upper Canada.
The river crossing Brant used lent itself to the name of Brantford. Alexander Graham Bell, perhaps the most famous Brantford resident, is the reason Brantford is also called Telephone City. His telephone was conceived and built in his father's Brantford home, known then as Melville House, and more recently named Bell Homestead.
Brantford transformed from an agricultural to an industrial town during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. However, the industrial decline of the late 20th century affected Brantford as well as other cities in the northern US and southern Canada. Brantford experienced an economic turnaround starting in 2004 when Procter & Gamble, along with other manufacturers, moved in.
Brantford is a humid area that reaches an average high temperature of 21 degrees Celsius in summer and an average winter low of -10 degrees Celsius. Brantford residents seeking new windows and siding look to Mitten Building Products. Mitten Building Products has been in business for over 60 years and offers the siding inventory's most comprehensive selection in the area.
Ottawa, Ontario, the capital city of Canada, is located on the Ottawa River bordering Gatineau, Quebec. The city area is known as the National Capital Region. The town was initially founded as Bytown after Colonel John By in 1826 and later incorporated as Ottawa in 1855. The city is named after the Ottawa river, from the Algonquin word adawe, meaning "to trade."
Ottawa lies at the junction of three rivers: the Ottawa, the Gatineau, and the Rideau. Historically, Ottawa was the center of the area's logging and lumber industry, and the rivers played an essential role in that trade. The Rideau River is part of the 200 km (126 miles) Rideau Waterway system that became a primary transportation system for military, commercial, and later, recreational purposes.
Public Service of Canada and many notable high-tech companies have become the most prominent employers in Ottawa, earning the city the title of Silicon Valley North. Many federal departments have their headquarters in Ottawa, and tourism plays a significant role in the local economy.
The Ottawa climate is humid, with average temperatures of 1.4 to 11.3 degrees Celsius. In the summer, temperatures rise to around 21 degrees Celsius, with average winter lows at -15 degrees Celsius. In Ottawa, windows, and siding provided by Mitten Building Products ward off extreme weather in any season. Call Mitten Building Products at 519-805-4701 for a quote.
Scarborough, Ontario, is an administrative division of Toronto in the eastern part of the city. The first European settlers arrived in the Scarborough area in the 1790s and a scattered collection of rural villages and farms incorporated in 1850 as a township. It joined Metropolitan Toronto in 1953 and then designated as a borough of Toronto in 1967. Scarborough became an independent city in 1983.
The Scarborough region has an archeological site showing evidence of nomadic occupation by hunters and foragers many thousands of years ago. It has been populated longer than records can show. Scarborough is known as a popular destination for new residents of Canada and has a diverse, multicultural population. Recommended destinations around the city for both residents and tourists include Scarborough Bluffs, Toronto Zoo, and Rouge Park.
Scarborough's economy has largely integrated with that of Toronto. It's home to various manufacturing, scientific, technical, and professional services companies.
Scarborough has a moderate climate due in part to its proximity to Lake Ontario, and its southern location lends itself to humid summers and cold winters. Average summer high temperatures reach over 26 degrees Celsius, and winter lows reach -9 degrees Celsius.
Mitten Building Products supplies residents and companies in Scarborough with replacement windows and siding that stand up to the town's worst weather, no matter the season. Call Mitten Building Products today at 519-805-4701 to talk about your siding options.
The City of London, Ontario is the most industrialized and densely populated area in Canada. British General and first Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada John Graves Simcoe named London and the Thames in 1793. The Thames and surrounding farmlands dominate the local geography around London.
