From Concept to Construction: Replacing Windows and Doors in Toronto with the Torwin Touch

Concept to Construction – Replacing Windows in Toronto and the GTA

Torwin has served the Canadians in replacing windows particularly in Toronto for nearly 35 years. In that time, we’ve developed the unparalleled expertise, professionalism, and knowledge needed to replace the windows and doors you currently have with fresh, new options that best suit your needs while complementing your home’s overall style. 

With a detailed consultation process, we make sure to accommodate all the musts on your wishlist while keeping you on budget. And if you’re not sure what you’re looking for, we can help with that too! Whether you want to browse our selection, show us a rough sketch, provide us with an inspiration board or ask for our recommendations, we can work with you to achieve the style you’re looking for.

We understand that any home renovation can be draining. Typical projects can run both overtime and over budget. Our goal is transparency, reliability and accountability: keeping you informed and aware of what’s going on. That’s why we’re there, from concept to construction, to make sure you’re comfortable every step of the way. That’s the Torwin Touch. Here’s how it works.

All Window and Door Replacements Are Made To Order

Did you know we don’t keep a large stock of windows and doors? Instead, all our products are made to order for your unique tastes and needs. There are no “one-size-fits-all” products or cookie-cutter designs at Torwin!

At our showroom, you can see a sample of the choices available. Take a look at our finishes, colours and hardware in person. Test out the windows and doors that pique your interest to see if they align with your vision from a functionality perspective. We encourage you to tell us what you have in mind, even if it seems impossible. We can recommend similar ideas within our current selection or mix and match features for a custom design.

With so many styles and options to choose from, there’s sure to be something that matches your taste. And what’s more, you can always rest easy knowing that, with Torwin, you’ll always get the most up-to-date, energy-efficient, and secure technology. Ask to see our EnergyStar certified choices!

Replacing the Windows and Doors in Your Home

If you’ve counted the number of windows in your home and gotten a little nervous at the size of the undertaking, you don’t have to worry. If you’re concerned about costs, we have a vast selection of windows at several price points and can work with you to develop a design that suits both your taste and budget. We also have flexible financing options that can help you achieve the look you want without having to stress about expenses. 

If it’s the disruption you’re worried about, we can work around your schedule, providing you with realistic timelines, keeping you informed and having our in-house team tackle the work in a manner that will minimize hassle on your end. We’ve kept thousands of projects on track and on budget. An added bonus: replacing your windows and doors usually involves much less downtime than other home improvement projects, such as bathroom or kitchen renovations. 

If you’re concerned about whether you’ve made the right style choice, you don’t need to be! Our design experts will conduct a detailed review, making measurements and notes on the size, build and materials that will best complement your home before providing you with recommendations. Whatever you choose will have been pre-vetted by us. 

We can do the same with doors as well! While door installation tends to be a smaller job, a well-chosen door can become the focal point of your home’s exterior. We can help you make a statement within your budget. And don’t forget your garage doors! An updated colour or design can make a bold impact, especially given the oversized nature of the average garage door. 

Our On-Staff Carpenters Can Handle Custom Work

Custom work is the Torwin Team’s specialty! Many of our competitors hire a general contractor for bespoke builds and unique designs. We have a team of in-house craftsmen to bring your window and door dreams to life.

What’s the in-house advantage of replacing windows in Toronto?

Reliability: Our carpenters aren’t scheduling competing jobs and shifting their availability to accommodate high-paying projects. We provide and vet the tools and materials they use, so you don’t have to worry that anyone’s cutting corners to save a buck. We treat every installation job with the same care and respect, whether it’s replacing just one window or replacing them all. If we’ve scheduled you in, you can be confident that we will be there to do the work!

Experience: You can rest assured that the professionals we send to your home have years of experience building, installing and finishing custom windows and doors. We send a staff member to your home to make detailed measurements to ensure the product we order will be the perfect fit, both in size and style. This is their life’s work, and they take pride in both the process and the product. You may not be able to say the same for a general contractor hired for a one-off job. 

Support: This might be your first time replacing your windows and doors in Toronto. If you’ve opted for a custom design, the process is probably new to you as well. But our carpenters have seen it all before. They can anticipate issues and offer recommendations to resolve them from the design stage to minimize any unforeseen surprises. Their experience means the entire project is in the very best hands – and their job isn’t considered finished until you’re completely satisfied. 

Our highly skilled and experienced on-staff carpenters can tackle:

  • Bay and bow windows, as well as greenhouse windows.
  • Custom aluminum capping, profile capping, and raised panel capping.
  • Bullnose sills.
  • Arched windows and trim in one piece.
  • A wide variety of wood species that are ideal for either painting or staining.

What’s more, we can handle knockouts, which make your windows or exterior doors a little bigger or even create an opening where there wasn’t one before. Our skilled carpenters can do the job!

We ensure our fully custom builds are energy-efficient by using top-of-the-line glass, seals and materials, so your windows and doors won’t just be beautiful to look at, they’ll be practical too.

Points to Remember When Replacing Your Windows in Toronto

Any home renovation project is an investment, and it’s essential to keep that in mind. New windows and doors will bring about a good ROI in reduced energy bills, improved aesthetics and better performance overall. For that reason, we encourage you to make your decision based on a few factors.

Appearance: Part of the fun of installing new windows and doors is the immediate impact it makes on your home. Modern, updated windows and doors can help even an older home look fresh and polished. Our experts can help you find a style and design that complements your house in a way you didn’t think was possible, even if you’re not aesthetically inclined!

Functionality: No more creaky and sticky hinges – new doors and windows should open and close smoothly! Choose between windows that slide up or fan out to open – or windows that don’t open at all. You can ask for doors that accommodate more than one lock for security and incorporate a touchkey pad or smart lock instead of carrying keys! Make your new windows and doors a joy to use by customizing the features that matter most to you. 

Price: The cost of replacing windows in Toronto will always be a significant consideration and one you shouldn’t overlook. But your decision should never be based on price alone. Prices that are too good to be true probably are – they’ve either cut corners in the materials used, during construction or in the installation process. Some windows may look fine in the showroom but leave a lot to be desired regarding quality. At Torwin, we only offer the best in both windows and doors, ensuring you get what you pay for – in a good way! With the proper upkeep, our products will stand the test of time.

“Knowing that this was going to be a major job and a large financial commitment, I wanted to ensure that we were making the best choice. I did my due diligence and I connected with Torwin Windows and Doors.

Not only were they quick to respond, but the owner himself came out to do the initial site visit to provide the quote. He listened to our concerns before he went over a number of options. Never did we feel like he was pushing the sale or trying to upsell us.

The quote process was easy and we worked through options to make sure we were happy while staying within budget.

COVID set back our installation but they kept in touch with us every step of the way, ensuring we were comfortable while they were in our home and respectful of safety regulations.

The work was quick for a big job and the crew was very polite and kept the house as clean as possible. The house was immediately more insulated, warmer and quieter. The house was also cooler in the summer and we have noticed a difference in our heating and cooling bills.

We would definitely recommend them and in fact we have already done so.”
