Wrought Iron Insert

John from "What a Pane" was prompt, considerate and thorough. He was extremely professional and answered all of our questions. His prices were far better than what we had anticipated and given the current economy, we were very happy that we were able to provide our home with this wonderful luxury. The wrought iron door insert gives our home a grand look. We couldn't have asked for better service. We would highly recommend "What a Pane". John, thanks so much. Best of luck.

Wrought Iron Insert

What A Pane was at our front door within four days of our initial inquiry with an assortment of inserts to choose from. I couldn't make up my mind and Barry took the inserts I liked and allowed me to look at them in the exact position they would be in if inserted. His patience was welcomed as I had called other companies and felt pressured to choose an insert I wasn't sure I even liked. Barry also designs some of the inserts. As he was installing he was flooded with questions from neighbours but never let us feel like we were not his customers first. The insert installation was beautifully done and my husband and I are thrilled with the elegance it adds to our home! Thanks What A Pane!

Glass door insert

We've been looking for a glass insert for our solid front door for years. Something a little different than what you find at Home Depot, etc. Last week a pamphlet was delivered to our door from What a Pane. Flipped it open, scanned the pics, and thought "We've found it!". Went to their website and found an even better insert. Emailed them. Barry responded right away with the price and we booked the install. BUT when he arrived he said "We may not be able to do this. Your panelled door is not standard." They measured carefully, got a bit creative, and 20 minutes later ... PRESTO! My wife was out ... when she came home and saw it, LOVES IT. While I've been retired from practice for some time, I am a licensed architect ... so I'm, well, fussy. What a Pane gets my top recommendation!

Brian,

We love a challenge! Yes this was a slightly difficult job. The door handle was in the way and the 9 panel door was not exactly standard.
Dan, my installer has a creative mind!
Glad you like your new door insert. Thanks for choosing us.

Wrought Iron Inserts

I found What A Pane via internet and boy am I happy I did. After reading the recommendations, I gave them a call. John was very helpful and made sure that when Murray came he would have the ones I was interested in on his truck. Murray arrived on time and showed my husband and I an assortment from his well stocked truck. Love that they are manufactured in Canada. Inserts were installed in 45 minutes and very cleanly. Can"t say enough of how I feel or how pleased we were with our new doors. We wanted to complete the look, so we ordered our custom transom, which should be ready in 60 days...can"t wait for the finished look!

Professional, quality product at a reasonable price, great service, friendly/knowledgable and efficient.....What A Pane....We love you! Murray you are great! See you soon for my back patio doors too.
To the What A Pane team, keep up the great work....amazing quality and craftmanship....Anna and Ben Venditti

If you need door inserts, call What A Pane...you will not be sorry you did....

Glass insert for front door

The glass insert transformed my front entrance. Thanks for your help and assistance. They were quick and on time and made no mess. They even brought a selection of window inserts for me to choose from because I was viewing them from a catalogue.
Thanks What a Pane!

To see the real thing as opposed to a photo in a catalogue, makes a significant difference. Thanks for your custom and the superb review.

Stained Glass installation

I obtained service from What A Pane as the previous hire was not adequate. I was very happy with the order I received and the installation process. They were very professional and left no mess behind. I would refer this company to anyone.

Afia,

Thank you, it was a pleasure dealing with you and fixing the problems left behind by the other 'comnpany'. It should be a warning to all that this business is plagued with part-time weekend money grabbers that have no sense of customer service. Anyone it seems can buy a few glass inserts from a from an importer, knock a few doors and run off with the procceeds. I am amazed she did not return your deposit for the side windows that you ordered.

Afia, good luck with your new home.

Stain glass insert in front door

I had my front door insert put in today and it looks fantastic!!! I highly recommend What a Pane and the guys were polite, fast and efficient. I can't believe the amount of light I get in my familyroom now. I hate a great experience and the price was very reasonable. Thanks!
