How to Find a Window Replacement Company in Calgary

Replacing the windows in your home is a big investment that will impact your quality of life for years to come. Choosing the righwindow replacement company will help to ensure that you get the best value and that your window installations will endure Calgary's climate. Not all window companies are created equal so make sure you do your research. Here are some tips to help you make the best choice.


Correct Window Installation is Everything!

Correct window installation is as important as the quality of windows you buy. Some window companies can cut costs by sub-contracting out to low cost, inexperienced installers but that can be more expensive in the long run. Incorrect window installation can lead to a myriad of problems including:

  • Drafts and water leakage which can lead to damage to the window frames and the walls of your home.
  • Poor insulation that often negates the benefits of modern, energy efficient windows.
  • Poor functionality if the window frame shifts over time.

Get your windows installed right from the start by hiring a quality window company.

  • I waited to write this review to see how the windows & workmanship would be after 1 year of use. The windows are triple low E glazing and frames are fibreglass. Well on a rating of 10, I give 10 for the installation, followup and the product. I would recommend these people to anyone who wants good service who back their products.

  • After a competitive evaluation of three potential suppliers we chose Old West Windows and Doors to replace 11 windows in our home. We were very impressed with Rick's knowledge and experience as well as the excellent reviews of his company. Kyle and his crew of installers did a first class professional and timely job taking care to minimize any disruptions.

  • Great service, great price, professional and knowledgeable installers. Installers worked on an extremely cold January day and took the time to explain how windows work and asked if we had any questions before they left for the day. Will recommend to others and use them again without hesitation for our future window needs.

  • Service and Quality are what Old West Windows and Doors provided for the installation of 10 windows on our main floor. Now the cold weather has arrived I cannot believe what a difference these new windows make. I found this companies name on Home Stars and they truly deserve the high star rating they presently have.

  • I couldn't be happier with Old West from start to finish. I had three estimates and Old West was very competitive. What impressed me the most and made me choose Old West was the professionalism and customer service from the first time I called to request an estimate. I'm so glad I chose Old West because of their professionalism and quality of work.

  • We replaced 5 old windows in our century home with white vinyl casements. Rick was very patient with us as we shopped around and tried to make a decision and always responded to emails quickly. He was also able to speed up the installation with an earlier than planned date and Jeremy and his great team of quiet and tidy installers completed the job in a single day.
