Everyone Says They Have The Best Products. What Makes Verdun Different?

There’s basically two types of products on the market. There’s “new construction” standard windows and doors that typically end up in new homes. You’ll find these products at big box hardware stores and retailers. Many may look nice, but they’re not manufactured to last very long and tend to be on the lower end of the quality scale.

Then, there’s the “renovation” standard. Products made specially for home renovation needs and mean to improve on what they’re replacing. These are made from the best components and are designed to last. You’ll find quite a few companies in the region that offer these products, but they typically tend to be expensive. The old adage - “you get what you pay for” applies in more ways than one.

This is where choosing Verdun is different. We’re able to offer our clients the better “renovation” standard products for an unbeatable price because we manufacture the product. – Energy Star certified windows and doors backed with our famous “No Bull” warranty on parts and labor.

Renovation project? Window or door replacement? House construction? Regardless of the application, Verdun windows and doors are the best investment you can make for the most important place for you and your family – your home.

St. Patricks Day Parade was a Good One.

Thanks go to Al Dickie, AJ Dickie, Curtis and Julianne, Renata, Connor and Mackenzie Gow for helping out on our Capital City Speedway contribution to the St. Patricks Day Parade. This was the second year in a row for us, and if all goes well we will be back in the parade next year. The parade was a shorter route than last year due to the construction at Landsdowne Park, but the turnout of people was still great. Rogers TV was on hand to film the parade and was shown on Rogers TV.
