Wrought Iron door and sidelight insert

Our door look awesome. Barry and his team did a fantastic job. Our neighbours came over to comment on it they absolutely love it. I would recommend this company - great value, excellent customer service and the quality of their work is awesome, Now my foyer looks even bigger and bright.

We must admit your doorway does stand out from the rest on your street.
We also admired the faux finish painting your husband is applying to your door(s).. Thanks for choosing us.
P.S. You also made a great choice from the custom sidelight drawings we did.

Stained glass inserts

We bought a new home and werent sure what to do with our front door. We wanted privacy but still wanted the natural light. After seeing many signs in our neighborhood we decided to give What a Pane a call. We are so glad we did. The price for a door insert and two sidelights was very reasonable. Barry came out to the house with some samples for us to look at and when we found a designee liked he was able to insert it during the same visit. The sidelights were a custom order and took a few weeks to come in, which was okay because they were worth the wait! What a beautiful entrance to our home. Barry was very nice to deal with. Both Barry and the installer who came to the house were professional yet friendly and got the job done quickly with care. Thanks!

Front door inserts

My wife and I wanted to maximize the light entering the house but we did not want to have any curtains or blinds by the front foyer of the house. We researched many companys until we found What a pane which provided wrought iron glass panels but also allows privacy so that no one could see inside. Barry was very good and extremely professional. I would recommend this company to any of my friends and family.

Repalce builder inserts

We moved into a new home with large window inserts in the double doors and have seen other homes with nice inserts and wanted something that would not only look nice but have an impact. We drove around and saw a lot of lawn signs from different companies but it wasn't until I saw the What a Pane designs via Homestars that we found something we liked.

I emailed Barry and he was great at getting back to me the same day with estimates. We booked an appointment and he came by with a few doors to choose from (I told him ahead of time the ones I was interested in) and we selected the design we liked best. The install was quick and Barry was really pleasant. There was a small manufacturing flaw on one of the inserts and Barry came back the next morning and quickly switched it out. Overall, it was a great experience with the only issue being that when Barry replaced the inserts he left all the little screw covers in our foyer. Not a big deal but taking those away when he took the old inserts would have been a nice touch.

My neighbours and family have all commented on how beautiful the inserts are. I've already recommended What A Pane to others.

Raj,

Thanks for the review. Yes those darn screw caps from your old inserts. They are so tightly wedged in that they tend to fly all over the place, when extracted. As we didn't want to step on your new hardwood floor, I guessed we missed some.
Anyway glad to be of service Raj.

What a Pane - What a great experience

Great great customer service, fair price. Genuinely strives to achieve high customer satisfaction. Installed inserts that did not match and Barry very promptly came a few days later to rectify the problem. The new insert has a defect in the wrought iron design and Barry has promised to get it changed as soon as he gets new stock of the Lyonheart insert.

Door Insert

Barry made things really easy. From the moment I called him he was able to meet right that weekend to take measurements of the door and bring a few samples that we had picked out from his very functional website. He came to install the door insert first as the other components were being produced (custom made) and he was in and out and even without the other components in place we couldn't help but think how much more light was flowing through the house with the full length door insert. They came a few weeks later with the components (transom and side inserts) and again in and out with minimal disruption and they left no mess behind. Barry is easy to get a hold off and responds to e-mails very quickly. I can assure you that if you're considering What A Pane for your next job you will be very happy that you did!

Aum,

It was also a pleasure dealing with you and your wife. Your entranceway, in my opinion, is one of the best on your street!. Not only for your choice of our "Destiny" design but the symmetry that was created by your input, was superb.

Front Door Insert

I called Barry on Friday afternoon and he set up an appointment the next day. He called and let me know that he was delayed, which I really liked.
He had the insert that I liked and a few more options in the van. He and Dan were very friendly and worked fast and efficiently. My front door is both elegant and beautifu. I highly recommend both Barry and Dan.

Stephen,

Thanks for the review. I am sure you mean 'Wrought Iron' Design rather than "Wrong Iron", nevertheless it was a pleasure dealing with you.

Front Door Glass Insert

Very nice wrought iron design, admired by our visitors and neighbors. Price is reasonable compared to other vendors. Service is great, Barry and John are friendly and very professional. They even came back to fix the issue with the door frame originally installed by the builder. I would recommend this company.

Service required about an hour.

Yes, this was an older door without any glass. There were 8 raised panels glued to the door, that had become loose over the years.
With some careful measurements we transformed the look of the house.
Thanks Lois for the kind review.
