Replacement Windows in Toronto


I am looking for some help with my options for replacing windows. I have been through many of the previous posts on the board looking for related information but unfortunately most of the information seems to be for locations in the US. I would like to do the install myself and would like some feedback on local options to purchase the windows. I have not been able to find a supplier in my area that will sell the windows alone. Every company seems to only provide the package with installation included. I am in the east end of Toronto up here in Canada.

I am looking for something other than the low quality options available from Lowe's Home Deport and Rona.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks.

Home Depot and Home Hardware carry the Jeldwen brand. Jeldwen has different lines to suit any budget. These store chains would be happy to sell the windows seperate. Rona carries a brand exclusive to their chain called SuperVision. I have 4 basement windows, i installed from them. Their made in Montreal, and i dont have any complaints. I work in windows and doors retail, if you have any questions............

Thanks Bjamin.

After my initial trip to HD I wasn't too impressed with the quality of the Jeld Wen products as I was looking for something a little nicer but after a closer look at their website it looks like they might have something that will work for me. I think my intital thoughts about the quality might have been because HD only stocks the lower quality lines in store. I guess the nicer products need to be custom ordered. What retail do you work in? I'm curious to know what you would sell?

I work in windows and doors at Rona in Windsor.........we carry a wide variety of windows. most rona stores only carry the supervision line, but we also carry all the special order Jeldwen.

HD and Rona and all the big stores carry "entry" line windows in stock. 95% of windows i sell are a special order.

Try building supply distributors. Here is a link for your area. Thats where I bought my Simonton windows (at a distributor). Also, if you have a brand you like, you can always check the manufacturer website for local distributors of their product.

Hello Bjamin;

I have been to my local RONA outlet searching for replacement windows with no luck. The ones for which I was searching were 31-1/2" x 46-1/2" casement and fixed aluminum clad windows for 2x4 construction. They had "interior simulated divided lights" with a "rectangular grille" pattern. They also had no brickmold and a 2" flat casing around the windows. I hope this makes sense to you. Do you have an estimate on what these might cost? Thanks in advance.

Gary Ryan.
