The top stores for windows and doors in Toronto can help you upgrade your home when the time comes to invest in some energy-efficient, stylish portals to the outside world. Whether you choose to refurbish what you already have, bring home some architectural salvage or get brand new customized pieces, it helps to know where to shop and who to talk to.
Here are my picks for the top places to buy windows and doors in Toronto.
Regan Brunette and his business partner Aaron McGill have been restoring, repairing and manufacturing specialty doors and windows out of the junction. If it's a replica you seek, or have a neat idea, its nice to know there is an option out there for homeowners who seek to reuse architectural items that just need a bit of love.
Fieldstone Windows and Doors Ltd.
Since 1997, Fieldstone windows and Doors have been helping people outfit their spaces with quality items. With a reputation for excellent customer service as well as a portfolio that includes finishes in wood, vinyl and fiber glass. I think Fieldstone Windows and Doors is a solid one-stop shop when it comes to doors and windows.
Chateau Windows & Door Systems
If you are looking for some ultra-cool steel framed windows for your home, Chateau can help. Though the cost may be prohibitive for some you can also opt for a wood frame window painted out to look like steel. As a supplier of some of North America's most reputable manufacturers, Chateau can provide and install some amazing products.
Clera Windows and Doors
As a manufacturer and installer, Clera is able to provide quality windows and doors with a lifetime warranty. As a family run business since 1978, they stand behind what they make and have a great reputation for providing homeowners with exceptional workmanship.
Delco Windows and Doors
Offering excellent warranties on their products Delco is another solid option when shopping for windows in Toronto. Specializing in the replacement and installation of vinyl windows, steel, fiberglass, patio and storm doors as well as porch enclosures since 1989, has earned them a great reputation.
The Door Store Ltd.
In the early 1970's, Sam Mirshak established The Door Store as a place where architectural items removed during home renovations went to be saved from the dump. It has since become a staple in Toronto for design junkies as a treasure trove of salvaged doors, hardware and a vast array of antiquities.
Brock Doors and Windows
Brock Doors and Windows have been providing solutions to Toronto and the surrounding area residents for almost 25 years. In that time they have earned themselves a reputation as a solid company who can meet the needs of its clients. From the smallest casement window to the biggest porch enclosure, Brock can help you out.
The Window and Door Specialist
With a large array of products at their disposal, the "specialists" can probably get you whatever it is you seek. Unlike most window and door outlets, the Window and Door Specialist carries shutters, steel doors as well as lock systems. Check out their virtual showroom tour if you want to take a peek at their wares without getting in the car.
Encore Home Improvements
In business since 1987, Encore specializes in energy efficient window and door replacements. As well, they also can provide customers with sound and noise reduction windows. With a good reputation in the industry, I'm pretty sure you can't go wrong with Encore Home Improvements.
Habitat for Humanity ReStore

If used windows and doors will work for your project, you must visit a ReStore. You can score some amazing donated stuff and the cause - as well as the price - will make you feel great.
