It has been a pleasure to deal with GEM. They are professional and organized. From start to finish they took care of everything. Excellent product and installation. We upgraded our older basement windows to brand new triple pane windows that qualified for the rebate program. GEM took care of all the paperwork and submission.

Windows

Last year I had helped my parents get new window and they did NOT use GEM -- what a horror story from a constant price changing to product promises that fell through to sloppy installation to no service afterwards. So when it came time to do my own house, I was scared. But unlike my parents, I went to GEM and between the knowledgeable sales staff, the innovative products, good prices, and great installation, I couldn't be happier! What I loved most was when we ran into some design questions, they came up with innovative (and beautiful) solutions. What I hated most was all the time I wasted checking out other window suppliers before I chose GEM. In two years when I replace the other set of old windows, I'm going straight to GEM. Thanks Spiros, Taz, Melissa, Lily, Frank and the whole GEM Team.

Algoma Street - Replaced all windows and doors

A big thank you to Gem windows for their great customer service. It started with meeting Tas in the showroom, who was a great in helping us decide on our selection of windows and doors to order.

Another thank you to the installation crew, with Joe, Mike, Paul and Turaz, all of which were professional in the workmanship and their attention to detail was also great!

Finally, a thank you to Jimmy, who took personally responsibility in ensuring that we were happy and satisfied with the installation. We did run into a small issue with our bay window, but Jimmy took care of it!

Regards,
Enzo

Consumer Service

A very big thank you to Gem Windows, there customer service is probably the best I have encountered in a very long time. Jimmy thank you for understanding to the sash lock issue and helped correct the problem right away. They gave me extra sash locks sliders at no charge. Wish I had went through you guys when I bought my new Windows.

Best Regard, Janet

Sliding door repair

Jim, the manager was very helpful. He provided me with advice and two complimentary blocking pieces to secure the fixed portions of the sliding door.

Based on my experience with Jim, I would highly recommend Gem Windows and Doors.

Rreplacement windows

We bought 5 replacement windows in 2012 and 4 more matching replacement windows and a new storm door in 2017. All the windows were ordered with full screens. Unfortunately, in 2012, the screens for the set of three matching windows in the living room arrived with screens only for the bottom sections of the windows. Supposedly, replacement screens were ordered at the time. I followed up a couple years later and was told the new screens would be ordered immediately. When I was placing the 2017 order, I again enquired about the missing 2012 screens. I was told they had been ordered but when they went to look for them, they found they had come in but had been forgotten at the time and had gotten damaged in the meantime. The screens would be re-ordered in 2017. When the screens arrived and were delivered, they were half screens again. Over the winter, the 3 full screens arrived and were installed.

All of the windows and the door work well and look really nice. However, when I was renovating and replacing the interior window trim in the bathroom last month, I realized that the 2012 replacement window was about an inch short and a 1/2 inch gap at the top had been filled with white silicone caulking. Since follow up is not Gem's strong suit, I haven't reported it to Gem.

Deno,

First of all thank you for taking the time to write you comments, here at GEM we value all our customers and take all notes, both positive and negative, seriously. In the case of your screens, we apologies for the delays and confusion surrounding it, but as you see GEM did not disregard your request and did in fact continue to work with you to get the screens correct for you in the end.

As for the gap around the window, it is standard practice to have a 1/2" gap around the window to allow for shimming and foaming the window all the way around. Silicone around the shims and exposed areas help to seal the window and minimize any exterior air being transferred into the home.

We would be happy to discuss this with you and provide third party confirmation that the gap in question is correct.

TEAM GEM!

Great Products. Great Service

Tas Merchant at Gem Windows was very efficient and organised in my interactions with her. The products provided were of top quality and operated exactly the way she described them.

The 8 blinds for our cottage came on time and were very easy to set up. They worked perfectly. I also ordered windows for my home in Toronto from Gem Windows and I requested Tas as a sales person. She organised the home measurements with her contractor exactly when I wanted it to be. The contractor was top notch and I ordered the windows with Tas ready to be installed shortly afterwards.

I would recommend Tas Merchant to anyone who is interested in purchasing blinds and/or windows for their home.
