They arrived on time and quickly replaced the original solid windows with venting windows. Easy to work with, grateful for the quality job. Cleaned up after themselves, no damage to the doors. Thanks for the great job! Photo shows frosted window cling on one of the windows (for privacy).

We have wanted to lighten up our front entry area for years, but did not really want to invest in a brand new door. Luckily found this company on Homestars, and could not be happier. From initial contact to consultation and installation, Barry and John were attentive, responsive, creative and professional. They were also very helpful in straightening the door for us. Truly a custom job, and a pleasure to work with.

Betty, Thanks for the review. We know you had a hard time in finding someone to do this sort of work but we are glad you found us. The extra light made a huge difference to your solid wood door. Thanks again Barry & Dan (What A Pane Team)

I hired Barry to install my 2 front doors and upper panel based on the great service that I received approx. 8 years ago at my old house. The service and professionalism is nothing but A+.
What a Pane was completely professional. I didn't have to ask them to be careful of my freshly laid hardwood floors or to clean up afterwards. The care taken while doing the install is very important to me and a quality that many contractors these days do not possess.
The What a Pane team are very competent at what they do. They are quick at what they do and quality doesn't suffer at all!
I would highly recommend What a Pane to anyone.

Called Whatapane on Friday told them my measurements and they said they could come by the next day. They came on time finished the install, cleaned up everything, no mess no extra sells just exactly what we discussed. Definitely great guys to work with - I'd recommend them to anyone looking for door inserts!

The longer inserts (22X80) look perfect for your home with the 8ft doors in Whitby. Good choice! A pleasure dealing with you. What A Pane Team.

This was the second project done for us by "What A Pane". We were very pleased with our first project so we were confident that they would do a great job for our front entranceway. From quotation to installation, the team of Barry, Dan and Neil provided excellent customer service and completed the job in the time frame promised. We highly recommend "What A Pane".

Norman & Lois. It was a pleasure working with you on both projects. Bit of a snowy day for an install but we are glad it was completed in a timely manner. Thanks for your business and the kind review. What A Pane Team

I hired Whatapane to replace my shattered door insert. Was amazed with their prompt, courteous and professional service. Barry responded quickly to all my emails and the installation took place quickly on schedule.

I would definitely recommend Whatapane and would use them for any future projects.

Mike, Nice of you to write this review. Would like to point out that it was not OUR product that shattered but an imported insert (they are prone to it) that was installed in your home by the previous owner. Glad we could be of service.!

This is the second time we have used what a pane. Service is excellent and the product is beautiful. Our installers where Barry and Dan and they where very Courtesy. I would highly recommend using what a pane. If I ever need to do a door again I will get what a pane to come back and do it again.
