SUCCESS STORY! - 962 BOURNE CRESCENT

 

These homeowners had procrastinated on replacing their windows ever since buying this home. Believing that new windows would cost at least $10K, they endured with the original single-pane aluminum windows for over 20 years. True story - their daughter used to keep an ice scraper in her bedroom so she could see outside during the winter!

In the Autumn they took notice of us replacing windows at their neighbours' and decided to at least have us over for a free, no-obligation estimate. Imagine their surprise when they found out we could COMPLETELY replace (no retrofits) all 7 of their large windows with our Premium, Canadian built, LIFETIME WARRANTEED windows for just $5400.00 plus hst!

Needless to say, they have just enjoyed the most comfortable Winter in more than 2 decades and can't belive they didn't call us years earlier! We'd love to help you too!
