House Tune Up - Here's why they're the best

Wow, this is by far the best window company in Canada (IMHO)! First, the windows are technically advanced far beyond ordinary windows. They look much better, insulate better, and offer the most amazing security features.
After researching a number of companies, and getting quotes from four different ones, we went with House Tune Up (Dako Windows from Europe). Here's the main reason: our next door neighbours demolished their home and rebuilt a nice new one. During the construction, they had some building supplies removed from the job site late at night. So my neighbour Mark put up some security cameras.
A few weeks before they were to move in (but after the appliances, etc were installed), they had an attempted break-in early one morning. The man was caught on film throwing large rocks, using a big hammer, and finally trying a crowbar to open the door. Although the door was bent slightly from the crowbar, it didn't open. After 22 minutes (on film), the man left empty-handed. Watching the video, even the police couldn't believe how the Dako product thwarted the attack.
The second sell point is their pricing. Although they weren't the cheapest quote, they were much less than two other companies, for a product that is clearly superior.
Third, these window look incredible and operate perfectly. Plus they can be super-wide, giving a more pleasant view of the outside.
Lastly, the customer service at House Tune Up is top-drawer. Although there's a fairly long lead time since they're coming from Poland, once they arrived in Canada, the delivery went very smoothly. The installation went more quicker than they estimated and they're follow-up service was excellent.
Since you've read this far, you're clearly interested in getting the best windows you can buy, at a fair price. You just found them! I encourage you to get quotes from other companies, then compare quality and pricing, and I'm pretty sure you'll make the same decision we did... House Tune Up! Five Stars, 10 out of 10, two thumbs up.

Would Not Buy Windows and Doors Elsewhere

Maciej of House Tune Up supplied and installed all the windows and doors for our home renovation. The windows are awesome and Maciej's after sales service is great. We had a few issues but he took care of each and every one of them.
If I ever need windows and doors again, I will not waste any time and go back to House Tune Up. I can wholeheartedly recommend this company and would work with them again in a heartbeat as they are reliable, trustworthy, and honest.

Bathroom Renovation

House Tune-up did a fantastic job on our bathroom and we were very pleased with the outcome. We were kept informed upfront of progress and if they would be unable to come on certain days during the project. When issues arose as is common in older houses, Maciej provided potential options to address these. The quote provided was accurate and for any extra work required additional costs were agreed up front and kept to.

Kitchen Renovation

House Tune Up has done a beautiful job renovating my kitchen and front hallway. It has transformed the entire first floor! Maciej Falger surpassed my expectations, he is a highly skilled and talented contractor who pays attention to detail and takes great care with every aspect of the job. He is easy to work with, and offered helpful solutions through out the project. Maciej is punctual and works steadily until the job is done. Work was completed as estimated and on budget.
I highly recommend House Tune Up, and certainly would use them again for further renovations. 10++

House Tune Up just completed a 1,300 sq. ft. In-Law Suite for us, which included a kitchen, bathroom, 2 bedrooms, mud room etc. We were a 1 hour drive away from the renovation, which meant we needed to have good communication at all times as issues arrived. Maciej Falger was always professional, eager to offer suggestions - even when it meant more work for him! The workmanship from House Tune Up was impeccable. I have worked with many contractors in the past, but none I could put so much trust in, as House Tune Up. We highly recommend House Tune Up for any size job, and will continue to use their services.

We hired Maciej to do a complete renovation of our unfinished basement including a kitchenette and 3 piece bath. To be honest this was our first renovation experience and we were a bit nervous. We interviewed at least 5 contractors and we immediately felt at ease with Maciej. Throughout the project, it was obvious that he took great pride in his workmanship and attention to detail. The project was finished on time and on budget. We are thrilled with the results and we are enjoying our new space. It was a pleasure working with Maciej and we highly recommend House Tune Up. Thank you for a great job!.

I hired HOUSE TUNE-UP to do more than just a tune-up! My basement was flooded after the flash-flood in Mississauga in July 2013 and needed total demolition and reconstruction. Maciej certainly did the job well.
He was punctual and completed the work in the estimated time frame. His original estimate was accurate and on-target in all aspects. There were no hidden surprises.
Maciej was not only well-informed about by-laws and regulations but also resourceful and creative. He demonstrated an excellent knowledge of the latest products available on the Canadian home improvement market. He made many invaluable suggestions for changes to make my basement more flood-proof--very important in my case!
Maciej listened and responded to all my concerns and tried to fulfill my wishes as much as possible. He takes pride in his work and it shows!
I would certainly recommend using HOUSE-TUNE-UP for all your home renovation or improvement projects.
