Installing new windows is one of the best investments you can make in your home.

Our crews arrive early and on time.
For GTA projects, crews usually arrive at your home between 8-9 am.
Most installations are completed on the same day or, within two days for larger projects. Occasionally we will schedule multiple crews to the same project to minimize the duration of the renovation period for our clients. Large multiplex projects require more time.
You will know it is us, by our uniformly marked trucks that you see driving all over town! Our crew will ask for permission before they pull into your driveway.
Lubricating the operating components for windows.We recommend using a silicone spray on the operating components of your windows. On casement windows this would include the operating arms, handles, rubber seals and screws. This will prevent then from rusting, ice buildup or tearing of the rubber seals.
On sliders we recommend that all tracks be free of dirt and grit. Awning windows should be treated the same as casement windows ensuring all operating components are lubricated.
