Door Materials: Opt for energy-efficient door materials to ensure optimal insulation.

Weatherstripping: Our advanced weatherstripping solutions help in reducing energy loss and enhancing efficiency.

Western Windows came highly recommended to us from one of their former customers. We still shopped around and got a few quotes from other companies. Although Western Windows were not the lowest price, it was evident their product is superior. We also liked the fact they are a family run business and their products are built locally in Calgary. But what really sets Western Windows apart from the other companies is their customer service. From their receptionists, to installers, to the owners of the company, their customer service is outstanding. We replaced ten windows and one sliding patio door. From the time of our initial contact, to the completion of the installation, this has been an easy, and pleasant experience. Thank you, Jeremy, and everyone at Western Windows! We highly recommend your company. Wendy and Steve

Many companies can learn what impeccable customer service is about from these folks. They replaced our back door, frame and windows. Amazing job. We will use them for future projects and recommend to others.
