I'm going to try to make a long story short.
The first dealer I checked for prices for doors and windows very quickly let me know I was in the wrong place if I was looking for the best price .I left there feeling a little discouraged with a quote of $14,000 and I would do the work myself.
I went to Brock Home Improvements next where the salesman showed me why it would be in my best interest to have their people do the work.We looked at their products and made an appointmment for him to come to our house to take measurements and for us to make final decisions on style,type,etc..
On the way home I stopped at a big box store to get another price on the windows and doors and I would install them.I left a copy of all the measurements with the appropriate dept.and they were to call me with a price.I did get a call the next day, but only to learn;they had lost the measurements.THAT WAS MY SIGN....I WASN'T MEANT TO DO THIS JOB.
I placed the order with Brock Home Improvements with them doing the installation.We weren't sorry for that.
In 1 1/2 days the crew of three people (one of them a lady I might add) changed 13 windows and a patio door.(The old ones were removed down to the rough opening)
I guess I didn't make it a short story after all,did I?
I was very impressed with the quality of the work,and the professional work ethics of everyone I dealt with as well as the products which make our home much more comfortable and energy efficient.
Thank you Brock Home Improvements for a job well done,especialy to Terry and John and his crew.....Wayne and Helen Cardinal ,Brampton,On.
