I a a real estate person (www.sharmaajay.com). We (Myself and my associate (www.punam.com) got a very difficult house for sale few months back. The expected price and house condition was decent but the windows were all old (some rotten) and even some of the window glasses were broken. We had a budget within which we had to get the windows repaired to sell the house at client's price. We knew there was no way we can sell the house at the expected price if windows were in such a bad shape. We had no choice but to replace the windows.
Even though we have our own team of repairmen, I decided to search for a new contact for window repair purely for cost savings and budgetary constraints. I looked at Kijiji and found Henry's info. I contacted him, and somehow developed confidence in him after talking to him and fixed appointment to have a meeting the same evening. We met at my house in Brampton. He arrived on time. We discussed the project (Replacing 10 windows with new energy star vinyl windows and removing the old ones from the property). I did not have to negotiate with him. His price from the first and only quote was @ 2,750 including tax (Energy Star Vinyl Good Quality Windows - some double hung- to be delivered/installed in 10 days). It amazed me. The cheapest quote I got from 3 other suppliers was $4,975 plus 3 weeks delivery/installation time.
I paid the deposit and signed the contract. My associate was shocked. She did not believe that I had just handed over $ 400 cash deposit to a person I have never met before (I did take his driver licence copy). But somehow, I felt I could trust him.
Well, the end result was fantastic. The work was done in time, with high professionalism, at the promised price and we were truly satisfied with the job very well done.
Based on my experience, I will highly recommend him and his company for all windows work.
