Front, Rear Doors & Sidelights - Awesome!

This company was recommended to us by a friend. We has a look at that job and being suitably impressed, contacted them to do our two doors and sidelights.
Everything was done via e-mail and communication was excellent. Their website showed a great variety of different products and we were easily able to make our selections. An estimate was provided and a work date given.
Installation was done quickly and efficiently and our installer was a real gentleman. Due to unforeseen complications with the sidelights a work around had to be devised and was installed a couple of weeks later, exceeding our expectations. Everything looks like brand new very professionally installed.
We are delighted with the outcome, with no mess, no fuss, great communication, and very professionally installed cut outs, handles, and sidelights.
I highly recommend What A Pane Inc. You get great work, great people, and great doors, at a fraction of the cost of a new door. Family, friends, and neighbours all thought we got new doors and were amazed that they were our originals, upgraded by What A Pane!

Hi John, Your existing sidelights could not be removed because of the exterior aluminum cladding, hence the workaround with new panels and trim installed on the interior.
Glad we could accommodate your requirements and thanks for the glowing review!

I am very happy with Barry and his assistant during the installation of the front door and window inserts.Barry was very professional and cleaned along the way. I am a repeat customer because of his quality of service and great price. I would recommend Barry to my friends and family that wants someone that they can trust. Thanks you for a great looking front door.

Claudio, we are very happy that you appreciate our work, no once but two times. You mentioned you will require some further upgrades to some fogged windows. Looking forward to seeing you again in the Spring of 2022.

Stellar from start to finish.

We replaced the glass in our front door. It came out amazing. We couldn’t be happier. Barry was very patient and helpful. Work was done in a timely and diligent manner. I have recommended “What a pane” to at least a dozen people since.
Thank you so much.

Front Door & Transom

What can I say except AWESOME! From beginning to end excellent customer service and craftmanship. We started with the door insert and then decided to do the transom. Not disappointed at all! I can't stop looking at my door. Recommend these guys for sure!

Great product and service

We recently had our front door glass insert replaced by Barry and his team and we’re very happy with the results. Barry is knowledgeable on his craft and made the entire process quick and easy. Would definitely recommend What a Pane to anyone who’s looking to update their glass insert.

Exterior double door stained glass inserts

The whole process was so efficient from a showroom visit and 15 days later Barry and his colleague came and did the installation in about an hour. They returned to install the hardware 7 days later which was very much to my benefit as it gave me time to paint and get the doors ready so now I have a perfect job. I love the look of the stained glass "mystique" and am thrilled to see such an amazing upgrade without having to spend thousands of dollars on a whole brand new door ensemble.

In love with our new custom door inserts!!!

We couldn’t be happier with our new custom door inserts! Barry was so helpful from the minute we were referred to him. Barry’s knowledge, communication, and professionalism made the whole process of creating and fine tuning our design very easy. They did a great job with the install and now we have a new front entryway that is beautiful, elegant and one of a kind!!! I highly recommend What a Pane if you are looking to add something special to your front doors!

Barry is amazing

Well. After having a door from Barry put in 6 years ago, the handle got loose. I called Barry expecting him to tell me to get a new handle. Instead. Within hours he drove all the way to my home. Took it apart. Fixed it. And told me don’t worry about cost. Even tho I was more than prepared to pay him for his time and Labor. He didn’t want a cent. The door was 6yrs old. What a guy. Thanks Barry. That type of kindness and ethic is why I would recommend You to anyone. Much appreciated. - Rish
