Install New Windows and Save Money While Giving Your House the Facelift It Needs

From new homes with sealed units that don’t insulate properly to old homes with windows that leak and cause drywall damage, window problems are one of the biggest sources of stress that a home owner can experience.

While the cost of new windows can be prohibitive, the cost of not replacing your windows can be far greater. The cost of installing windows that properly insulate can pay dividends in heating/air conditioning costs saved. If your windows are leaking, they can damage your drywall, and possibly leak into your foundation, causing a number of problems to be fixed on top of your faulty windows.

But defective windows aren’t the only reason to consider replacement. Your home’s curb appeal is only as good as its weakest feature; if you’ve replaced your roof, front door, or siding, and your windows may not be reflective of your updated aesthetic.  When trying to sell your home, investing in new windows can go a long way to increasing the value of your home. If you have updated the rest of your home’s exterior but still have the same windows you did 20 years ago, it may be time for an upgrade.

Choose Edmunds for Your New Windows

Finding a reputable window installer that you can trust is hard; there are a lot of contractor horror stories out there. At Edmunds, we’ve been installing windows in the York Region and Scarborough area for over 25 years.

At Edmunds, we install vinyl, wood, and fiberglass windows from a number of manufacturers: Vinylbilt, KV Windows and Doors, VWD, and Pella. All of our work comes backed not only by our manufacturer’s lifetime material warranty but by our 10 year labour warranty as well. We don’t know of any company that offers a warranty that covers labour for more than 5 years.

Because we offer a variety of windows from various manufacturers, we’re able to take the time and consult with you on every aspect of your new windows. Does your home back onto a noisy street or highway? Our triple-pane glass option will ensure a soundproof experience. Are you especially concerned about energy efficiency? We’ll include insulating foam in the frame of your windows to ensure maximum interior heat retention. Need a non-standard colour to match the rest of your home? We’ll match any colour you can think of.

 

At Edmunds, we’ll be with you every step of the way to ensure that you get the best windows for your home and a reliable, warranty-backed installation. For a free window estimate, call Edmunds at 905 472 0276 today.

Get a Return on Your Investment When You Choose Edmunds for Your Front Door System

Still not sure a new door system is worth the investment? You’re likely losing out on more money than you realize: investing in a new door system has been shown to increase the value of your home by 4.2%[1]. For a $2500 entrance system installed in a house valued at $500,000, this works out to an ROI of $18,500.

 

When most people decide their front door needs to be replaced, they either give it a new coat of paint, buy one and try to install it themselves, or look for the cheapest installation option. These solutions almost always fail.

 

  • With installations, you get what you pay for. At Edmunds, we’ve heard many horror stories of customers who go with contractors that charge 50% of what we do. Their doors dent and scratch easily, don’t open and shut properly, and don’t provide adequate insulation against the elements. And when the customer calls up to have their door fixed, the contractor is nowhere to be found.
  • Installing your own door is an incredibly risky endeavor. Entranceways come in all different sizes, so there’s no guarantee that your mass-produced door from home depot will fit your home. Even if you contact a manufacturer and have a door custom-made, you have to make sure your measurements are perfect—this is easier said than done. Unlike windows, which have a little more room for error, doors have to fit perfectly if they are to function properly.
  • Unless your front door is a beautiful old wood door, don’t paint it; the result is almost never an improvement.

 

 

Here’s What Our Customers Have to Say

“I have been using Edmunds Home Improvements for the past 25 years now and you name it they’ve done it! They’ve done my roof two different times now, fixed my eavestrough, and also replaced all my windows and doors. For the most recent project they did was some aluminum capping and replaced my door and three different round windows. I am in real estate and I always recommend their services to all my clients in Unionville.”

Tired of Stressing Over Roof Problems? Edmunds is Here to Help

Why Waiting to Fix Your Roof Could Cost You More Than $10,000

Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home: it keeps water, snow, and animals out while defining the aesthetics of your property. Therefore, it is no surprise that a roof in need of repair can quickly become an endless source of stress.

While a new roof can cost anywhere from $5000-$10,000 or more, the cost of neglecting your roof is often far greater. A leaking roof can lead to drywall needing to be replaced, costing anywhere from $500 to $2000, or foundational damage, which can end up costing $5000-$10,000.

Upon realizing that your roof may require replacement, a number of questions often arise:

  • Is my roof leaking?
  • How long has my roof been leaking?
  • What kind of damage has already occurred?
  • Is my roof under warranty?
  • Can it be repaired?
  • How much is all of this going to cost?
  • Why are some roof estimates half the price of others?
  • I’ve heard all sorts of horror stories about dishonest roofers; who can I trust?

At Edmunds, we’ve been answering these kinds of questions for our customers since 1947.

Turn Your Old Roof into the Highlight of Your Home

One thing that we have found is that, once a homeowner realizes that their roof problem is under control, the process of having a new roof installed becomes exciting. This makes sense, given the beautiful rooves we’ve installed for our customers over the years (click here for pictures of our work!). We take great pride and satisfaction in turning worn down, stressful, problematic roofs into a point of pride for our customers.

“I have been using Edmunds Home Improvements for the past 25 years now and you name it they’ve done it! They’ve done my roof two different times now, fixed my eavestrough, and also replaced all my windows and doors. For the most recent project they did was some aluminum capping and replaced my door and three different round windows. I am in real estate and I always recommend their services to all my clients in Unionville.”

Bruce, Markham, ON

“I used Edmunds to replace my Roof Shingles and Windows. Both services were completed to my satisfaction. The workers are professional, polite and hard working. They found other problems and resolved them on their own initiative knowing that was the right thing to do. Pricing is reasonable and in the middle range. You get what you pay for. I would recommend Edmunds to anyone.”

James, Markham, ON

At Edmunds, we stand by our work: all of our new rooves come with a 10 year labour warranty. We don’t know of anyone else that offers a labour warranty longer than 5 years.

The Singles We Rely On

Our roofers install CRC/IKO, GAF, Certainteed, and BP fiberglass shingles, as well as Decra metal shingles. Being able to offer a wide range of shingles from the best manufacturers across North America allows us to bring our customers an endless array of choices. From economical “3-tab” 25-year warranty shingles to lifetime warranty architectural shingles, Edmunds will find a shingle that suits your budget while providing peace of mind and adding top-of-the-line curb appeal to your home.

Edmunds is Your One-Stop Shop for Eavestrough, Siding, Soffit & Fascia

Eaves, siding, soffit & fascia are some of the most important aspects of your home, both aesthetically and functionally. At Edmunds, we have been installing and repairing aluminum work for over 25 years. We use the best materials from local manufacturers and all of our work is backed by our 10 year labour warranty.

Transform Your Home with Vinyl Siding

There are few choices more important than picking the right siding for your home. Siding is responsible for keeping the elements out and providing insulation; it also sets the tone for the style of your entire home. For these reasons, Edmunds installs Gentek siding. They offer 8 unique styles of vinyl siding, each with a range of colours to choose from. Gentek siding comes backed by a Lifetime Limited, Non-Prorated, Transferrable Warranty with hail protection and lifetime fade coverage.

Vinyl is not the only material used to make siding. For more information on the different materials available (and why we recommend vinyl), read “Choosing the Right Siding for Your Home: Function and Aesthetics.”

Prevent a Host of Leakage Problems with a Quality Eavestrough Installation

For a part of your home that so frequently goes unnoticed, eavestrough plays a crucial role in preventing roof leakage. At Edmunds, we install continuous aluminum eavestrough using Gentek and Kaycan heavy gauge gutter coil and interior hangers and screws, ensuring a durable product that won’t work loose over time. Using two manufacturers has enabled us to provide twice as many colour options to match your home’s aesthetic.

For eavestrough that lasts a lifetime and is maintenance-free, we highly recommend the Alu-Rex line of gutter protection products. The importance of a quality gutter protection system is discussed in “How a Quality Gutter Protection System Can Stop your Foundation from Rotting and your Roof from Collapsing.”

For more information on how the quality of your eavestrough installation affects the rest of your home, see “Think You’ve Got Roof Problems? Check Your Eaves Trough First.”

Keep Your Attic Ventilated in Style with the Right Soffit & Fascia

Soffit & fascia present a unique opportunity to augment your home’s style while maintaining a well-ventilated attic. The team at Edmunds installs Gentek and Kaycan soffit & fascia using only heavy gauge aluminum. Unlike wood, which needs to be painted regularly, and steel, which also needs to be painted and can be prone to rust, aluminum provides a maintenance-free solution without sacrificing durability.

To learn more about the importance of soffit & fascia for the health of your roof and attic and why Edmunds goes above and beyond industry standards to provide a superior installation, check out “Why You Can’t Neglect Your Soffit & Fascia.”
