Would recommend this company. This is the second time we have used them for replacement of windows for our property's.
Of all the people I’ve had to deal with for my home renovations, Tony D was by far the best. So pleasant to deal with. Very knowledgeable, understanding and easy to talk with. Any issues resolved quickly and easily with Tony. All questions asked responded to very quickly. He’s wonderful! Thank you Tony!!!
Recently had 11 new windows installed and very pleased with the service and product. Igor was project manager, and from the first time we met he was very knowledgeable, extremely responsive, answered every question and clearly delivered. The window installation teams were so impressive, efficient and fast, with no sacrifice to attention to detail. Work space was cleaned every day. We did compare options and will say Canadian Choice demonstrated a real want for the business. No problem recommending Igor and his team. Wishing we had done more windows.

I would like to thank especially the installation crew, they were beyond awesome in their job, so efficient, they cleaned everything, professional and were patient with all our questions.

Do you find it chilly outside while it’s cozy inside? That’s when condensation often forms on windows, as their surfaces are cooler compared to the well-insulated walls of your home. A few simple measures can help prevent this type of condensation: consider using a dehumidifier, open windows for better ventilation, or run exhaust fans in high-humidity areas like the bathroom or kitchen.
Windows that see regular use may develop issues with air and water leaks over time, which is referred to as air and water infiltration. Water infiltration is often more obvious, leading to condensation on the windowsill. This occurs because windows are designed with weep holes to allow internal water drainage. However, under specific weather conditions, this can lead to water accumulation on the windowsill.
Indeed, our customers have experienced up to a 30% decrease in their energy bills after window replacement! However, keep in mind that total energy savings can fluctuate between different households due to other variables like the quality of insulation and weatherproofing.

Low-E, or low-emissivity glass, is coated with a thin metallic layer designed to improve energy efficiency. This coating allows the sun’s short-wave energy to enter the building, but reflects back the long-wave infrared energy, which is key in preserving indoor heat during the winter. It’s perfect for colder climates like ours here in Canada, where it’s crucial to retain indoor warmth and reduce reliance on heating systems. Curious to know more? Read our detailed article here: https://www.windowscanada.com/whitepages/what-are-low-e-coatings.html
“Window sweating” is a term used to describe condensation that forms on windows during colder months due to high indoor humidity and low outdoor temperatures. This can cause an obstructed view, dripping water, or even ice formation on the glass. It usually occurs when the temperature outside is very low, but it’s warm and humid inside the house. If left unchecked, severe window sweating can lead to mold or mildew growth, so it’s crucial to address it promptly with a professional. Do you have sweaty windows? Reach out to us today for expert advice: https://www.windowscanada.com/contact-us.html
For any home, UV protection is a wise choice. Our sealed units feature LowE coating, which provides UV protection and ensures year-round comfort, no matter the weather. During summer, the LowE coating blocks heat and harmful UV rays from entering, while in winter, it acts as an insulator, preventing heat loss and maintaining a cozy environment indoors. Homeowners appreciate its cost-effectiveness and lightweight nature. Don’t miss out on UV protection! Learn more about it here: https://www.windowscanada.com/contact-us.html

U-Value and R-Value are measurements used to assess the energy efficiency of windows. The U-Value indicates the amount of heat loss occurring through a specific window. A U-Value of 0.1 signifies minimal heat loss, while a U-Value of 1.0 indicates high heat loss. On the other hand, the R-Value represents the overall insulating value of a window. A higher R-Value typically indicates better insulation. For windows, a good R-Value range is typically greater than R-5. If you’d like more information about U-Value and R-Value, feel free to reach out to us: https://www.windowscanada.com/contact-us.html
