Window installation can seem like a daunting task – however, eventually the time will come when your old or factory-grade windows go from bad to worse. Repairing might only fix part of the problem, as existing contour series windows may be cracked, rotting, or broken, making them wholly inefficient. Don’t put off the problem: the best time to take action is now. Here are some tips and general advice for having windows installed in your home
Have your home’s existing windows started to look shabby and worn? Would you like to reduce your energy bills as much as possible? Do you intend selling your home shortly, but have discovered that its existing windows are reducing its value substantially?
Once you know why you’d like to replace single hung window panes and frames – or other types – it will make it easier to determine what types of replacements should be installed.
For example, if you are considering selling your home, you won’t want to spend as much on Toronto window installation as if you were looking to go as energy efficient as possible. However, if energy efficiency is your end goal, then you would want to consider installing double- or triple-paned units instead.
Once you know why you are considering installing replacement contour series windows in Toronto, you can then start comparing the different window types and styles that are available. If you’re looking to add a little more space to smaller rooms in your home for instance, you might consider installing bay or bow windows. Another benefit of bay and bow windows is that they provide your home with an elegant and classy appearance, which will in turn increase its curbside appeal tremendously.
If you have young children, you will want to ensure that they cannot fall out of any new windows that have been installed. This could prompt you to install awning windows that will be too high for them to reach, or alternatively, installing locks on other units to prevent them being opened while you aren’t around to supervise them. In cases where you may experience a lot of inclement weather, you’ll still want to enjoy a flow of fresh air through your home. The best way to achieve this will be to have awning windows installed. These units hinge on top and open outwards, preventing rain or snow from entering your home.
Although there are many tasks that can be undertaken as DIY projects in and around the house, Toronto window installation is most certainly not one of them. Windows that are not correctly installed will leak during inclement weather and allow unwanted air to enter your home as well.
In addition, many window suppliers will not be willing to honor warranties if their units have not been installed by an accredited and experienced technician.
Another aspect to consider is that you could seriously injure yourself while attempting to install contour series windows in Toronto yourself. In many cases, health care plans and life insurance cover providers will not pay out for injuries caused as a result of a DIY or home maintenance project going wrong.
When having new contour series windows in Toronto installed, you may experience inconvenience in the form of additional dirt, dust and noise. However, this can be minimized even further by preparing ahead of time.
This can be done by removing curtains and drapes beforehand, covering large furniture items with sheets or drop cloths to keep them as dust-free as possible and removing any alarm sensors that may be on existing windows or frames.
The window installers will also require easy access to all rooms where new units are going to be installed. As a result, it’s recommended that smaller furniture items and anything else that will be in their way be removed and placed elsewhere until installation has been completed. This will not only enable the job to be completed faster; it will prevent any accidents occurring as installers carry old and new window panes and frames through your home.
While your new Toronto window units are being installed, it is also recommended that children and pets be kept away from the work areas, as this will prevent them from being injured by work crews – while this may not happen deliberately, accidents can happen. If possible, organize a sitter or have your children stay at Grandma’s until the project has been completed.
Before signing a contract with anyone to have replacement contour series windows in Toronto installed, you should check to ensure that they are not only reputable, but also accredited and insured. This will ensure the job is done according to required industry standards and it will prevent you from being held liable in the event of any of the installation team being injured on site during the installation project.
When looking for a reputable company to install your new contour series windows in Toronto, it is recommended that you ask if you can view other projects that have already been completed or obtain references from existing clients. Reputable installers who are proud of the work they do and who honor their warranties will be more than willing to provide you with this information.
Although it may be tempting to accept the lowest-priced quote you obtain, this practice is not recommended. Not only is there a strong possibility of being provided with poor quality products and workmanship; you may also end up having to perform cleanup yourself, which can be costly – especially if you have to deal with disposing your old windows. Always ensure that quotes include everything required to do the job to completion – including cleanup.

I had Canadian Choice and 2 other companies come out to give me a quote. By far Canadian Choice was the most professional and the price was fair. We dealt with the sales representative Jemal, who was polite and very informative. He even came by after installation, which we did not expect, but we're delighted he did. We had 10 windows installed and will be doing our last 6 basement windows and doors with Jemal and Canadian Choice in the spring.
Great company, great service and Great pricing.
We had another five windows replaced on our home. This is a total of seven this year and again, the quality and service is excellent. We will be calling next year for more windows. Thank you Odka and his crew for another job well done.
So pleased with our new entry doors and window!! The whole process was a pleasure, starting with our sales rep, Joe, he took the time to explain everything to us, and help us decide on which products to get. Day of install was a breeze, our installer was very meticulous and took his time installing and making sure everything was perfect. We're so happy with everything that we're going to do the rest of the house in time. I will be contacting Canada Choice again and I recommend them to all my friends and family!!
3 main floor windows and 3 man doors changed in one day by 3 knowledgeable, masked and gloved employees respecting the current virus circumstances. Had excellent service and staff - very happy with the products
I have ordered windows two different times of which the first time had some issues but it took no time at all to have the glass replaced and repairs made. No fuss, no muss. They listened to my issues and repaired them.
The second order was quick and fast. I have a high end home, and these people took very good care of my floors and belongings as they worked. Their clean up was second to none inside and out.
All day long long I would say they do a great job and would hesitate to use them again, which I am as I placed another order.
I know good work and trades as I dealt with trades for 37 years as a adjuster and project manager. I have done from 100 dollars to 10 million dollars, I would not be afraid to use on anyone of them.
Absolutely made the right decision to get Canadian Choice Windows and Doors to replace not only the damage windows (cause by hail) but the for the entire house. Big thanks to Bob for recommending the casement type, it's gorgeous! Kudos to Orest and Andrew , the installer, for great, fast and awesome work. Good job guys! Thanks.
Sales representative was communicated very well. Went out of his way to research options that fit our needs/requests. Installers were very professional. Lined and protected floors and wore masks when in the house. Very happy with the end product. Would definitely recommend. Had complements from neighbors already. I think one neighbor has already booked his own installation with them. Money well spent.
Great service, very professional installers!
Olga, the sales rep, provided a very competitive quote, answered any questions we had. Sergei and the crew did an excellent job. The installation of 11 windows was done in a day.
Thank you! We highly recommend their work.
We had 6 windows and 2 sliding doors replaced. Our representative Adriano was very knowledgable and friendly. He was always available for any questions or concerns. The installation was professional and fast. All work was completed on time as promised. We love our new windows and doors and will definitely have additional windows replaced by them when needed. We would highly recommend.
Excellent service right from start to finish. Kevin and James did the installation and did an amazing job. True professionals. They came in and put tarps over the floors to protect them. They replaced 9 windows and results are beautiful.
Once they were all done they cleaned everything up. We then did a walk around inside and out showing us each and every window to make sure each one met with our expectations.
We are extremely happy with our new windows and highly recommend Canadian Choice.
We had all our main-floor windows (except the big picture window) replaced two years ago by Canadian Choice, and finally got the big picture window replaced this week. The sales representative, the installation team, and the office team all showed great professionalism, courtesy, and helpfulness in answering our various questions.
The installation team showed great skill, were careful not to damage any property, and even did a superb clean-up after their work was finished.
We were quite surprised at how quickly the work was completed, and how great the results turned out! We would gladly recommend this company to anyone without hesitation,
We would recommend this company and their product to anyone.
I replaced five windows/patio doors last year from Canadian Choice Windows and Doors. Stan came to my place multiple times and offered answers to lots of questions we had, and Yuri came to install windows last September. I received quotes from at least 5-6 companies and Canadian Choice was the 2nd lowest in terms of price. The quality of the windows may not be the top but it was very good. I waited until spring to write a review after winter season. No problem whatsoever. I will definitely order rest of windows in my house from them and strongly recommend Canadian Choice.
Approximate cost is for both projects. Windows were $22K, front door $3K. We were very happy with the products and service provided by Canadian Choice. Marina was very helpful and responsive, providing good advice and responding to our questions. Yuri's installation work was well done. Both responded quickly to our calls or emails, and advised us in advance if work had to be delayed for some reason. We would recommend Canadian Choice to anyone looking to replace doors or windows.
