I was looking for a replacement sliding patio door as my current one was at the end of life and was exhibiting all the signs:- drafty, cold, condensation build up, and difficult to slide etc.
There were a few products out there in the market, so I consulted some of the window installation companies to provide me details and quotes for their sliding patio door offerings.
After having done my own research I had more or less settled on a particular brand of sliding door, that is until Oliver from Canadian Choice Windows came to my home.
Oliver offered a different product that the other competitors did not provide and was superior in all respects.
The quote was competitive and warranty offered was excellent.
Oliver's knowledge and experience of all aspects of sliding door and the benefits it provides came across very well and he was able to recommend some installation options.
I opted to go for a custom sliding patio door and for brick-to-brick installation which would provide for a neater installation and also meant I could do away with the old wooden door frame which was also looking tired.
I also visited the Canadian Choice showroom where Oliver provided a demo of the actual sliding door. It was here that I was introduced to Tomas, one of the installers. I had many questions about the installation and Tomas was able to provide the answers.
On the day of the installation Tomas arrived, upon removing the old door it was found that the subfloor and joist under door was rotted, this was due in part to a poor previous installation. I had to get this repaired in order for the installation of the new door proceed.
I was able to get this repair done quickly and in the meantime I kept in touch with Hanna at the office who was able to coordinate and reschedule Tomas back for the installation of new sliding door without any further delay.
The installation went like clockwork, Tomas is a good installer, he knows his craft very well, and provides excellent attention to detail. The work area was left clean and tidy after he finished.
I was impressed how well the new door fitted into the opening, the clean installation (no visible screws), the new interior trim work, the professional caulking work on the outside and new drip cap installation.
Overall the new Sliding Patio Door looks amazing from the inside and outside !!!
Thank you to Oliver, Tomas, Hanna and the team at Canadian Choice Windows for excellent service and a great installation.
I recommend them for any new sliding patio door work.
