"We had a new steal roof put on this past fall, we chose to go with a more expensive steal, as we like the slate look. They were all very professional and dedicated and stayed late some nights. Our old roof was very old and they ended up taking all the shingles off and adding new plywood so the roof was more stable. Our experience was a positive one and we love our new steal roof and gets of positive comments from people. We are also getting this company to put new siding on in the spring as well. Thank you so much and can't wait to get the siding done. Thanks Ed and Paula Amsinga"
"They are truly worthy of "1st choice", the best sales, installation, after-service, I've seen in my life."
"Top notch company. We had 6 windows replaced and are more than happy with the results. The whole team from sales to planning to accounts to after service and finally installation are superb. Their window install team is a family of 5 and they run like a well-oiled machine. They were in and out and cleaned up in half a day. We even had a minor afterthought issue and they were very accommodating in fixing it for us.If you are looking for quality windows, workmanship and price give them a call."

- "1st Choice Home Solutions supplied and installed four windows and a patio door in our home. The installation was exceptionally done and they completely cleaned up after the installation. The front windows have dramatically reduced the excess heat and glare we experienced with our windows. The patio door is the smoothest operating door I have ever had. Overall I would give our experience 5 stars and would recommend this company to anyone. Dan in Lucan"
- "Loved dealing with 1st Choice. Great service and ppl top to bottom. Definitely will use again."
- "I highly recommend 1st Choice Home Solutions! They recently installed beautiful new windows in our house. The installers were quick and efficient. The customer service was top notch and the prices were competitive."
- "We have had several new windows installed, great team of installers and awesome finished job. I would highly recommend, thanks for the great service 👍"
- "From start to finish, 1st Choice provided professional and quality service. The owner himself does the estimate and there is no pressure or upselling. He answered all my questions honestly and made valuable suggestions. The installers for both the roof and the eavestroughs were friendly, professional and timely. The job was finished ahead of time and the workmanship is high quality. I am extremely pleased and would highly recommend this company."
- "I highly recommend First Choice for anybody investigating installing a metal roof. It started with the patient and knowledgeable Glen Chard and carried through with the excellent work crew and office staff. At the end of the installation the property was well cleaned up and the garbage bin was carted away within an hour of the job's completion. Professional, courteous service was evident every step of the way. Price wise, First Choice was competitive with our other two quotes; but First Choice had a superior product."
- "I decided to come back and update my review of 1st choice home solutions and change the star rating. I still maintain that the installation could have been done a lot better. This update is mostly because of the excellent post installation response and repair of a leak that was discovered near the chimney. Glen had his guys over twice (within a day of calling) and repaired the flashing around the chimney. No more leaks (fingers crossed). We signed a contract with 1st Choice home solutions to replace our roof in June 2019 and this time around the experience has been a lot different compared to 2016. Communication and organisation on their side is sub par. Have delayed the roof installation twice and all I hear is excuses. This used to be a good company. Not sure what is going on. Not the same company I dealt with in 2016. _____________________________________________________________ We have been in our home for 20 years now and have had some experience with contractors, some good and some bad. Glen and his team have been just about the most professional we have ever had the pleasure to work with. We had all our windows replaced with new Wardco vinyl windows. These were by far the best windows we were quoted. Great quality at a reasonable price. We even got a glass upgrade for better energy efficiency. The installation happened on the day that we booked (why can't all contractors show up when they say they will) and the installation team was amazing. Quick, efficient, clean and professional. They installed 17 windows in one day and cleaned up nicely after themselves. The capping was just superb. No more painting for me. They even inspected all windows to make sure they open and close with no problems and answered all our questions. Great experience. Thanks"
- "Glen and the rest of the staff at 1st choice were great from start to finish with the measuring, order, installing and coming back to double check that we were 100% satisfied with our new storm door and metal door. We were so impressed that we have just placed an order for 2 new bedroom windows and a front bay window. Very impressed. Would highly recommend."
- "1st Choice Home Solutions deserves 5 stars! The product is fantastic and I really appreciated how they took the time to help me select the style and colour. They made the installation look quick and easy! I would definitely recommend 1st Choice Home Solutions in the future."
- "1st Choice Home Solutions provides excellent quality for a very reasonable price. We had a metal roof installed and we were able to get financing as well. The crew completed the job in 1.5 days, were very courteous, and cleaned up before they left. We plan to use 1st Choice again when we replace our siding. I would 100% recommend."
- "We are very happy we chose 1st Choice. Some of the selling points for us were, they are a local family owned business that offer many services. We replaced our roof, skylight, eavestroughs, windows and some siding. We were looking to give our home a more modern updated look and with Glen's expertise and guidance we achieved this and are very happy with the finished product. Glen is very knowledgeable and friendly, he is always on time, his quotes are very detailed and don't change. There was never any sales pressure whatsoever. 1st Choice are competitive with their pricing and their products are of high quality. Glen has a great team of people around him and we will be using 1st Choice again in the future. We have already recommended 1st Choice and will continue to do so to anyone interested in getting work done to their home. R. Lake"
- "Nov 2020. We had a metal roof installed with 1st Choice Home Solutions. We are very happy with the product and especially with Stephen and his team. They worked diligently through some cold & windy (even snowy) weather to get a beautiful result! We highly recommend 1st Choice Home Solutions !!"
- "1st Choice recently installed a new door and front windows in my home. From start to finish, I couldn't be happier with the service and the results. I had four other quotes from various local companies. Two of those companies stated a new door would be too difficult to install due to it needing to be custom made. The other two companies said that my options were very limited. 1st Choice was the only company that stated with confidence the job could not only be completed, I could have my choice of product and the final pricing was comparable to the two others that said they could do "something" but not what I wanted. The entire team was friendly and professional and nothing was too much trouble to ensure 100% satisfaction. I would highly recommend them for whatever outdoor home improvement you're looking to have done. I will also definitely use them again for other home renovation projects in the future."
- "We had 1st Choice Home Solutions install our new roof in 2019 and we were extremely happy . The whole process from start to finish was very professional - Glen is very thorough and explained everything from start to finish. The work crews are very professional and tidy and get the job done. The communication from 1st Choice is great too - any questions we had were answered immediately. We this year needed a new back exterior door, so of course we called 1st Choice and appointment was set up with Glen. Great service again! Door was ordered and due to covid 19 it took a little longer for it to come in so Tanya at 1st Choice sent a card with personal message apologizing for the delay and a Tim Horton's card - which we were not expecting at all! Super customer service and with covid affecting everyone, 1st Choice has made sure their customers come first! Would definitely recommend for any upcoming projects. I am sure we will be booking again in the future. Thank you for the great service Glen, Tanya, Les and the entire staff!"
