I'm really happy I went to Kingsway... they created a custom solution for my patio doors that are 11 feet wide by 8 feet tall... and the blinds look beautiful. They were so helpful and knowledgeable in planning the unique solution... I simply could not have gone to home depot or blinds to go. Better still, they did a masterful job at the custom installation, and it was included in the quote. They came when they said they would and the installer was very professional. So 6 months after the installation the pull string on the Hunter Douglas roller blind snapped... it's still functional, but the problem is being a custom installation, I can't remove the blinds to take it in under warranty. I called them and they said I had to uninstall myself and bring in the blinds... I feel they installed it and they should come out and uninstall. I would also say this the second time I've had defective issues with Hunter Douglas brand... they are overrated and overpriced in my opinion... for such a quality blind, the pull string is so cheap. Anyway, I would go to Kingsway again and I would recommend them because my situation is so unique based on a custom installation. I'm a little disappointed at the after sales service, but I cannot complain about their expertise and installation in the first place.

The best compliment I could give Steve and Dan from Towne is that I would absolutely hire them again (and I will next year for the basement reno!!!). You will not find a more honest and reliable contractor... no job too big or too small. They say what they'll do and they do what they say. In addition to a full kitchen reno, they blew out my back door and window and installed beautiful 10' patio doors, they moved a load bearing wall, they redid stairs, they refinished floors, they installed appliances. And you know what, they became like family after a while, because they treated my family and I with such respect, it was like having "Cousins Steve, Dan" and the boys working in my house. They were on budget and super trustworthy. And best of all, the end result looks AMAZING... we get breathless comments on our reno all the time... I've already referred Towne to a couple I've known for 30 years, and they too were happy with their reno. I will post some pics soon. Some people have unrealistic expectations that renos will always go smoothly, but there are always unexpected issues through no one's fault... Towne always dealt promptly with these issues and always informed us of our options. Anyway, I can't say enough... if all contractors were like Towne, Mike Holmes would be out of business... these guys are true professionals that treat people as they would their own family. Thanks Steve and Dan... will be calling you for the basement soon. I only wish I had more renos to do LOL!

Total Appliances in Mississauga is a smaller retailer that offers personal service from the owner and they have their own delivery trucks. This means they are reliable and great to deal with. Sure the show room is not big and fancy like some of their bigger competitors, but they make up for it with personal service, reliable delivery, great pricing, and after sales service. They carry all the big brands. We bought Thermador Fridge, Freezer, Range Hood, and Bosch stove, cooktop, dishwasher, and U-Line bar fridge and are thrilled with the look and quality. Thank you Tony and Frank!

Furnace broke down on coldest night of the year and called them at 7pm and the owner Rolly showed up within an hour...amazing! Had to get a part from Lennox and came right back next morning. Furnaced was fixed properly and is now keeping us warm...thanks Rolair!

OK, so they're not cheap, but if you want to cheap on the front of your house then go to Home Depot, LOL! Seriously, I now own the most beautiful front door in my neighbourhood, and we're talking about million dollar homes. I also shopped around, and frankly replacing my double doors generally cost $4000-$6000 for a decent door pretty much everywhere. The difference with Entry Doors is that you get a truly impressive and beautiful product... fibreglass with wood grain that looks so real. And best of all, their installer Gabriel is a true combination of technician and artist. This is the BEST investment I have ever made in my house... it makes a stunning curb appeal statement. Remember the old adage: "the pleasure of saving money is forgotten long after the satisfaction of quality" (or something like that). Seriously, if you care about the security and curb appeal of your house, then for the love of pete don't cheapen out on the front door! Thanks Alex and Garbriel.

Hi Mike,
It is one of the top review I've received ever :)
Thank you so much. I hope you'll enjoy our fiberglass door for long time.
Sincerely yours,

For such a low price of one assessment (less than $100 tax in), this is one of the best things you can do to protect your home and family. Frank was so nice and clearly knowledgeable. He knows all the burglars' tricks and will point out the weak points around your home. After taking Frank's advice, we feel much more secure. We still use our alarm system, but Frank enabled us to "fortify" our home and increase our peace of mind. Thanks Frank!

It has taken 2 months from our first service call. The first guy came in and things seemed ok. Charged me $80 to show up and diagnose and order parts for the next guy. Problem is, it took over a month to get the next guy in... two guys showed up without the parts. The fourth guy finally figured out he could make the repair without any parts and he did so for a reasonable price. Which means, the first guy should have done the same and saved me 2 months and all that hassle. Additionally, their call centre/dispatch service was brutal... numerous last minute cancellations and no-shows. These guys are a mess... I feel bad because they have good people working for them, but they have some fundamental problems. Stay away!

Robert is a real professional who does great work at a reasonable price. He has done 3 jobs for us: moved location of the A/C, installed a dishwasher, and repaired our furnace. Each time, his work was professional and in the price couldn't be beat. When it comes time to replace our furnace and A/C, Cancool will be the first one we call!

Overall I was quite satisfied with the experience. Jason is great at consulting and provides value added service due to his flair for design and style. He was able to get a painter out to our place in fairly short order and they did the job quickly and efficiently. I would have rated them a 10 out of 10 but I deducted one point because we did have a misunderstanding, half of which I admit to being my fault, but when you ask someone to paint the trim around the garage, I don't mean SOME of the trim, I mean ALL of it... should I have to explain that? They painted exactly what I asked for, but in the end, I think a reasonable person looking at my garage would have recommended painting all the trim. Jason was great, but he spent all of his consultation trying to get me to change colours, and in the end we basically picked the colours that were there before... would have preferred he spend his time making sure all the necessary work was identified. Oh well, shame on me for not pointing out specific trim pieces that seemed to me to be obviously scuffed and in need of paint. To their credit, they did everything they said they would do, on time and on budget, so in the end I have nothing to complain about. I will try a different painter next time, but I can honestly say I would fully recommend Renaissance.

Tony and his crew are amazing. These guys show up on time, do what they say they're going to do, do it professionally and with beautiful results! They transformed our boring and featureless suburban backyard into a modern oasis, and we have rehired them to do the front as well! Highly recommended. Thanks

Donovan was very professional and helpful. The installation was done very professionally and we are extremely pleased with our beautiful new garage doors and garage door opener. The only little nitpicky issue we had was that the installation took over 7 hours and we were told it would be completed in less time, and on top of that the installer forgot the decorative hardware (which he came back to complete in a matter of days), but that's a real small issue and compared to the quality and satisfaction overall, almost not worth mentioning. Thank you Donovan, Paul and Andrea at All City... I highly recommend you guys!
