Door, window improvements

Based on excellent reviews on Homestars, I contacted Archie of Sobol Inc. for a quote for a new door and window I needed installed in my home. He is very professional and knowledgeable and recommended the right products for both those jobs. He also noticed areas in one of my existing windows and front door that needed weather-proofing, and came up with a very affordable solution that didn't require heavy investment. They gave me a set day for work to start and arrived precisely on that day at the appointed time. Archie and his team did a superb job of executing the work with craftsmanlike attention to detail, and finishing touches so the new door looks like it is actually part of my century-old home. In spite of a couple of setbacks in the process, they came in on time and on budget and I am delighted with the results. Thank you, Sobol Inc.!

Delayed by weather, very good at keeping us up to date with the situation. Did a beautiful job with the trim around the window. Cleaned up very well. Very professional and easy to deal with.

Slider replacement

I've owned and renovated 5 old homes in downtown Toronto and dealt with dozens of contractors. Sobol Inc is first class in their customer service, quality of workmanship and expertise. They replaced an older slider with a more efficient and larger one a few days ago. It involved a lot of tear out, framing, rebuilding and problem-solving. The schedule was tight and they encountered lots challenges, as my home is more than a century old. I'm very happy with the job they did. I recommend them highly!

Replacement of bedroom window and fix patio door

Archie was great, very professional and his quote was significantly less then the other company that I got a quote from. You can tell he has experience and isn't just trying to upsell you. They were right on time, left the place clean and the window looks fantastic! Thanks I would definitely use them again, and definitely recommend them.

Window Replacement

Our experience with Sobol began with Archie making a single trip where he clearly explained the options, took measurements and then he followed up with a quote by email. We signed back and delivery and timing of installation was exactly as promised. The work itself was excellent, and the quality of the finishing trim was much better than we'd expected - particularly in our wonky old house. But the real difference with Sobol was the little things. Politeness, taking care while in our house, being very friendly and good natured with two little children wandering around. Absolutely no complaints or suggestions for improvement!

Bedroom window replacement

I has looking for quotes for replacing bedroom window. Archie was very quick to respond to my inquiry and visited my place to give a formal quote within a few days. While replacing the window, the installer determined that I had a leak in the roof and water was seeping in the window. He stopped the work until I can get the leak fixed. They came back to finish the installation after i got the roof repairs done. The installer was very friendly and knowledgeable. The whole process was very professional with Archie following up regularly. I would use Sobol Inc. for future projects

Replacement Windows

Sobol had replaced windows for my neighbours on either side of me, so I knew I would get quality products and service. I was not disappointed. Archie and his team are consummate professionals; they worked quickly and cleaned up at the end of each day. The trim work around the windows was outstanding. I will not hesitate to use Sobol again for my future window and door needs.

New Windows & Doors

A bit late with my review but I had to make sure I posted just how happy I am with the service provided by Archie and his team. In November I had all the windows on the main floor, two on the upper, and the front and back doors all replaced. In addition, I had the back door moved which required brickwork. Sobol was on time and on budget. Exactly what you want from a contractor I had about 5-6 contractors come and quote. Sobol was competitive with the all the professional companies out there. They are not a fly-by-night cheap job type company. They offered good value for my investment. Archie took the time to go over options, explaining where a retrofit vs a brick mould install would be better. He was very accommodating with the number of times I changed my mind on certain aspects of the project and was quick to update any changes to the quotes I requested. His team were very friendly and personable. They kept the project space very clean at all times. My house is finally draft free and warm!! I would absolutely recommend Sobol and will use them for any future projects.

new windows

I contacted Sobol on my neighbours recommendation to have windows replaced throughout my townhouse. As soon as contacted, Archie came over a few days later, was helpful in recommending best options, not necessarily most expensive options. Installation took place in January, during the polar vortex! In spite of the weather, it proceeded without delay. Was surprisingly painless. The team was efficient, courteous and friendly, cleaned up after themselves at the end of each day, and got the job done within the 3 days they were scheduled for. All in all, a very good experience. I would recommend Sobol to anyone looking for windows or doors.

New back door and basement window

I called Sobol on the recommendation of my sister who recently had all her windows and doors replaced by them. Archie came to take measurements and discuss our needs. I noticed his attention to detail when he spent a lot more time looking at our oddly sized back door, taking many more measurements than other companies did. He provided a very detailed quote a couple of days later. The door and window were ready when they said they'd be and we were promptly booked for installation. The installers did a great job but when I noticed a slight issue with the door sweep a couple of days later, Archie quickly came back to make it right.

Replacing bedroom windows

This company replaced our sliding glass doors to the deck 3 years ago. They have great customer service, answer all emails promptly and are very knowledgeable. If the project lasts more than one day, your house is left clean and free of tools and construction waste at the end of each day. On the first day of this retrofit, Archiel contacted me to let me know that there was less work than expected and that he would revise the price. It was over $1000 cheaper than we had planned. Many contractors would have been tempted to not do the work and just pocket the money. You can count on Sobol to provide excellent workmanship, attention to detail and high efficiency Energy Star rated windows. You will also find their prices extremely competitive. I recommend them whole heartedly.

I used Archie and his crew for the first renovation 3 years ago. They replaced the windows on my first floor and the back and side doors. I loved their work and therefore rehired them to replace the original but badly worn front door. The door looks spectacular and their workmanship is superb! They matched the old lintel that had to be reomoved on the inside of my 1917 house and matched it exactly. The site was as clean as it could be and my property was left better than it was before. Higly recommend him.

Window replacement

We recently decided to replace our windows in our home. Our house is an older double brick semi-detached and the windows were quite old. After doing a lot of research and meeting with several companies, we decided to go with Sobol Inc. Windows and Doors. It is one of the best decisions that we have made. Right from the beginning, we felt confident. To put it simply, Archie?s expansive knowledge allows him to see potential problems that others miss and his consistent ability to offer proactive solutions always amazed. For example, our front bay window was sagging a little to the right, so Archie didn?t just slam the new windows into the old holes. Instead, he rebuilt our entire bay. The end result is beautiful showpiece that everyone on our block has commented on. Further, as one might expect in an older home, some issues came to light as the old windows were removed. Not one of them phased Archie and his crew. They were always quick to offer several solutions and the end result was always wonderful. Beyond expertise, the care that Archie and his crew put into our job was evident. The workmanship was beyond reproach. They took real pride in their work and left the job site perfectly clean at the end of each day. Further, Archie is incredibly easy to deal with. He is clearly interested in making sure that the job ends with a happy client and goes above and beyond to make sure that this is the case. Throughout the whole project, we always felt like Archie was as interested as we were in making sure that the final outcome was perfect. Lastly, the project came in on time and on budget, just one more thing that left us with a giant smile at the end of the project. Working Archie and Sobol Inc., we always felt like someone genuinely cared about solving our problems and not just completing a project. We can?t say enough about their professionalism, knowledge and level of customer service. All our neighbours are eager to use them in the future and we wholeheartedly recommend them.

Called Sobol prior to a reno because the contractors didn't do windows. Archiel was at our house taking measurements within a day (even though he was recovering from nasal surgery) and the window was in ahead of time. Archiel was friendly and informative and offered us different solutions for our windows. We are having them come back to install 5 more windows and a door. Strongly recommend!

Two new windows in master bedroom

This review is long overdue as I got my new windows installed back in March. We have an old victorian semi, and the windows were in rough shape in the master bedroom. I probably had 6 or 7 companies come through to give me quotes, and Archie from Sobol was the last one. After meeting him and getting their quote, I knew right away that I'd be going with them. Almost 4 months in, and I couldn't be happier with the work they did.

replace 6 windows

SOBOL is a company I'd be pleased to recommend to anyone. Archie and his friendly, reliable team easily handled the unexpected posed by our 90 yr old home. We're especially pleased with the addition of insulation in the walls around our bay window, a value-add which we didn't expect.

— Robert Kennedy, Old Toronto

front door replacement

Our window replacement project went so well that we decided to get Archie to replace our front door too. During the installation they corrected unforeseen defects in the way the previous door had been installed including the absence of a lintel! Excellent value-add and the finished result looks great.

I am very happy with the service provided by Archie and his team. He provided a written quote and itemized all the work that would be done.

all windows/screen doors replaced

I had 5 quotes for our job including three 10 star Homestars window installers and two contractors who neighbours were very happy with. Archie came to measure and give our quote; he was the *only* person who took the time to inspect all the windows, the frames, and to notice variations in measurements between windows in a double-story bay. His price was very competitive; I was actually really surprised! We had his team come first to replace 7 windows (including one massive window) and install a screen door; we liked them so much we had them back a few weeks later to replace the remaining windows in our home and add another screen door. Both times his team finished installing the windows in one day and came back the next to seal from the outside. They were polite, efficient, and professional. Archie was a delight to work with. I would highly recommend this company!

Install window

I will definitely hire Sobol again. Archie was great - very knowledgeable and patient during all our last minute changes. I am confident that Archie will always make sure the job is done right. I had another company make the hole in the wall for the window, because they were in doing some other renovations. My only regret is not hiring Sobol to do the entire job of making the hole and installing the window.

Replace Windows

I am more than pleased with Sobol Inc. I chose Sobol after noticing the work they did on a Victorian home on Grant St a few doors from me in the Queen St East / Broadview neighboerhood area. I also visited a house where they were installing all the windows. Because it was under renovation and unoccupied I was allowed to enter and talk to the installers and was shown different options and how they compared. I was impressed My windows on the 2nd floor of my Victorian home at 59 Grant St were installed yesterday. Workers arrived on time and did a beautiful installation and left the place spotless. Because theirs was the lowest quote I spent extra checking references since I was not just looking for the lowest bid. The men I dealt with are gentlemen and I am happy to recommend them . PS I want to replace my roof and eves . If any readers have an excellent personal experience please return the favor and e mail me at No business replies please.

Archie and his crew were professional, courteous, and efficient. They went beyond the normal expectations for this kind of service.

I highly recommend Sobol and I will be calling on them again for future projects.

Retrofit Entire House with new Windows

We hired Sobol to replace all the windows in our old house. We went with fiberglass in the main room and all bedrooms and vinyl in the basement and extremities. Archiel and his wonderful crew showed up on time, covered our floors with cloths, they were friendly, and they reviewed the process before starting. We had an issue with the colour and Archiel worked hard to solve the problem. At the end of each day, the crew removed the cloths and swept the floors. In the end, our new windows look great, there were no surprises on the costs (right on budget). In fact, I suspect they did a little extra on two windows and replaced some rotten wood at no extra cost. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sobol to anyone who needs windows installed.

Window pane replacement

We had Archie over today to replace a broken window pane in our large wood window. Prior to dealing with Archie, I had contacted a couple other companies (both with 10/10 ratings on Home Stars). Both suggested replacing the entire wood window with a vinyl one which would have meant replacing both large windows in our front room so that they would match. We were not interested in going vinyl, or having mismatched windows in our house. I spoke with Archie and he came over soon after to assess the damage, take measurements and provide a quote. He told me he could do it no problem and was very friendly, personable and explained things clearly. Today he came on time and performed an excellent job replacing the pane which was rather labor intensive. I was extremely happy with the work and glad we went with Sobol. Archie's very detail focused, precise and takes the time needed to do an excellent job. These qualities are hard to come by in the trades industry in our experience. He also cleaned up afterwards - the room is cleaner than before he arrived:). Overall, we are extremely satisfied. The cost was very reasonable and we plan on having him back in the future for further door expansion/instalment. We would definitely recommend him to friends without hesitation.

Replace Windows & Doors

We hired Sobol to replace the remaining old windows and doors in our Victorian semi-detached; 4 double-hung, 2 picture windows, 1 exterior glass door, and 1 exterior aluminum door with integral blind. From the outset they were among the best contractor/services we have hired. We had another major window company provide a quote. In comparison, Sobol (Archiel and Kozue) conducted a thorough assessment of our work, provided a highly detailed quote, and clearly indicated the installation timeframe (they were quite busy). Archiel provided helpful advice about window and door options, and sent several alternative quotes for coloured aluminum exteriors and architectural door handles ? which we ultimately selected. The installation crew was also great ? they took the necessary time to ensure that the finishes were well done (including virtually rebuilding our deteriorated wood door frames), and the daily clean-up was excellent. There were no extra costs above the original quote. It has been several months since the installation was completed and we are very pleased with the product and quality of the installation. We would highly recommend Sobol Inc. [We would also recommend selecting one of their custom colours for exterior windows and doors ? the additional cost was minimal but the result was a significant upgrade over standard white.]

Replace Windows & Entry Door

We were looking to replace a couple of windows in our house and expand/replace the front entrance door. We called a few companies for quotations - Sobol was the 3rd company to come out for measurements/quotation. When I met Archiel I immediately felt comfortable with him. He was knowledgeable, easy to talk to and by far the most thorough in comparison to the others. Most importantly, I felt he was trustworthy and he did not disappoint. Archiel and his crew were courteous, professional and respected our home. They were meticulous in their work and took responsibility for cleaning up after themselves. We are extremely satisfied with the quality of work and the crew?s expertise. I highly recommend Sobol Inc and will definitely use them again.

Replaced 11 windows (including 3 bays)

When we started to look into replacing the windows in our 100 year old home, we had no idea where to start. After contacting 2 window companies (one of which never called us back), we found Sobol Inc on Homestars and contacted them as well. Archiel had responded within a few days and when he came by the house to view the windows, he was very helpful and had some great suggestions and input. We could tell from our meeting with him that he was very meticulous with his work and cared about our needs and the detail in his company?s workmanship. We chose to hire Sobol Inc not only because of the above, but also that they were able to give us more than what we expected for approximately the same price as other quotes. The crew worked for six days and was very careful at keeping the house clean as they worked. They tidied up every night before they left and made sure the front and back yards were tidy as well. As the finishing trim was going up, they asked us for our input on certain details, instead of making decisions on their own. In the end, we were so happy with the crew, the windows, and the workmanship. We would highly recommend Sobol Inc. to anyone looking to replace windows, especially in an older home. We know we would use them again.

Window Replacement

We had 9 windows replaced, one repaired and a new one installed into our double brick home. We were so impressed with Sobol! Archie was very professional and so as his crew. They used drop clothes throughout the house, they vacuumed their mess, they arrived on time each day, they caulked and finished the windows with new trim and even filled the nail holes. We were most amazed that the new window was installed and surrounded by a beautiful casement that matched the trim that is in the rest of the house. Next year, we plan on replacing our to bay windows and we will choose Sobol again!

New windows

We got 3 quotes to replace five windows and to reseal two others. The first 2 companies were typical, apparently - "we're one of the only trustworthy companies, I'm going to give you a special 130% discount plus free installation, and the seniors discount because I like you.... so that would be $9000..." Archiel was the 3rd to quote, and his first words were "how can I help you?" It was a good start. He spent lots of time looking at the windows, gave us some ideas of how to reduce our costs, and gave us a very reasonable price. The only downside was that they're so good that we had to wait a couple of months to get the work done. But when they did, his crew was prompt, fast, clean, and they did a great job. The windows they installed are very good quality. I've already recommended Sobol to my neighbour, and I'm going to have them quote some other work for me in the near future.

8 Windows, Front, Storm and Patio Door Installation

We decided to contact Sobol after reading all the positive reviews on this site. I'm glad to say that dealing with Archie and his team was a very pleasant experience and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone reading this. When we started the initial request for a quote we really didn't know what styles we wanted for the windows and doors. Archie came over to the house and after showing him the windows we wanted replaced, supplied us with a reasonable quote in a very timely manner. During his initial visit, he even informed us that one of the windows we had was still in very good shape and did not need replacing. The work was performed very professionally and his team were very tidy (covering furniture in the near vicinity, cleaning up after themselves at the end of each day and at the very end of the job). They even very quickly replied to questions we had after the job was finished. Very pleased with Sobol and the end result!

The project started as scheduled, the crew was great, clean and professional, and the work was completed on time and exactly as per the quote. As with many old houses, we discovered some issues, with the foundation under the new door needing some repair, and this was done well at a reasonable extra cost. I would recommend them to anyone.

14 windows, 1 front door, patio door

We had replaced 14 vinyl windows, 1 front door + 1 screen door (incl. tear down walls, new drywall, insulation, electrical, ceramic tile in front foyer) and resetting of patio door (done August 20, 2012-but too busy to write review). Archie, owner (recommended by a friend), was honest (reasonably priced with meticulous detailed quotation) and very professional and worked with us even when some unexpected changes came up. Our existing patio door had to be reset properly (previous contractor had not done a proper job, so the patio door was arching in the middle and the screen door subsequently fell off its track)--so his team worker, Lien, even carefully vacuumed dust constantly during stone cutting to minimize any dust in our kitchen. Excellent workmanship and careful attention to detail-no shortcuts. Always cleaned up everyday, protected our furniture, took off their shoes when going upstairs, punctual & courteous team members. Glad to provide them with Coca Cola (fav drink) & snacks as they worked hard everyday. Definitely would recommend to everyone! Most importantly for us was to do the job right . Just remember to have your ideas ready, book early, otherwise they book up quickly (It's worth to wait for them if you can).

Window replacement in old home

Archie replaced two windows in our house as part of our kitchen renovation, and when we needed to replace a window in the basement, a few months later, we didin't hesitate to call him again.

New Windows in Entire Home and one door

We hired Sobol Inc. to replace almost all the windows in our old, 1920's Toronto home. Before we even started, Archie was amazing. He remade our quote probably 5 times to accommodate our budget and always did so on time. In our home, most windows still had the old sashes in them and the walls are plaster and lathe. This can make for an unfortunate mess, however, Sobol did a fabulous job. They replaced each window, brick to brick in a neat and tidy fashion. They always took their shoes off before coming in the house, the put down sheets in every room and hall, and they kept all their garbage outside in a tidy pile, which they removed on the last day. They didn't even mind all the extra add-on's we asked them to do including a door, and extra window, and make all the trim on the inside of the house match the old fashion style of the home. Archie came and checked on the project a few times, and even came back a few days later to help us with one window that was giving us trouble. A team of two was at our house for 5 days, and the cost of the project was very reasonable considering the time and all the trim work. If you need to replace windows or doors in your home, I highly recommend Sobol. We have two windows left to do once all our renovations are complete and I will be using Sobol again.

Broken glass repair - window and wall unit

Quality and professionalism were excellent. The workers said they would be at my house in the morning but didn't come at the expected time. I called and they said they were running very late. We re-booked for that evening and they came right on time and did the work without complaint about the late hour. Somewhat inconvenient (I wish they had called me) but I was happy with the efforts to set things right.

We recently had 4 windows installed by Sobol. We are extremely satisfied with the work. The crew was excellent in their installation and clean-up.

Changing old windows

Archiel and his crew have changed 4 windows in our house in June 2012. 4 windows were changed in total, two of which were corner windows, and 2 of which were large (almost floor to ceiling). At this point I am rating the actual installation process. Prior to settling with Archiel I have contacted 3 other companies, all of which are reviewed here on the HomeStars. Two of the companies estimates were about 1000 more while the other company was $6500. After some research and contemplation we decided not to take chances, plus, Sobol was installing VynilBuilt brand windows - the same brand of windows that got installed for us a year ago by another company that changed some of our windows as part of renovation. What I liked: - Archiel did not try to sell me things I do not need - I was provided with a detailed breakdown of the work cost (I mean 2 pages worth of details) - my request for oak casing in one of the room was accommodated at no additional cost - I was able to choose different casing styles for different rooms. - jamb extensions are preprimed. - the connection between wall and casing is sealed with vynil sealant, which is great! The other company hasn't done it everywhere. - no walls/floors/furniture was damaged. The removal of old windows was done very carefully, all garbage removed with nothing left behind. The previous company yanked a few pieces out of our plaster walls. They mostly patched it, but I had to do more patching and sanding after anyway. - installation was done on schedule and finished on schedule My only minor complains are - the filler on jamb extensions wasn't sanded. I did it myself, but I would prefer not too. - one of the casings had a splinter that one of the workers came after to fill in and sand as well as few small nail holes. - the windows were somewhat dusty and dirty after renovation. The company came back and cleaned them. Overall, I am really satisfied with the job and would not hesitate to recommend Sobol to anyone.

Window replacement

This company was recommended by a friend who is a very thorough researcher when it comes to home renovations, and who had used them earlier this year for window replacement. She thought they were excellent. From the first contact, they were very professional in their approach. The estimate was detailed and very clear. Once we had worked out exactly what I wanted done, with good advice from their head person, we set a date and they arrived exactly when they said they would. The window work was very professional, the men were not intrusive and were helpful, and I'm extremely pleased with all they did. The windows look great. I would not hesitate to recommend Sobol. They are a great find!

New window cut-outs and front door

We hired Archie after a positive review by a friend and after having read reviews on Homestars. It was the wisest decision we made. Our project was to do two new window cutouts in the dining room and study and then replace the front door. Archie not only provided a clear and transparent quote, but he stood by this price after work started and one of the cutouts was found to be more complex than originally thought. Archie and his crew were here 4 days from 9am until 7pm and the quality of their work was fantastic - the framing around the windows is spectacular and the front door is excellent. In addition, Archie and his crew took great care in cleaning up and taking care of my house - which is not the case with most workmen! Very highly rate Sobol ! You will not be disappointed.

New doors and windows in several homes

Sobol first competed with several other contractors for my window and door replacement projects, in Riverdale Co-op, which owns a number of co-op housing buildings in the downtown east end. After the first set of projects was done, I was most impressed with Archie and his installers. They are knowledgeable and focused on customer satisfaction. Any problems that surfaced during or after the installation have been promptly and professionally dealt with. Sobol continues to do work for Riverdale Co-op. I highly recommend Archie and his team.

New basement windows

Fair price for top notch product and installation. No need to call in Mike Holmes to fix up shoddy work :) Arciel's work is excellent, excellent. Work site was clean and the waste was taken care of. Archiel came in for an estimate and the quote he provided was the price I paid after all the work was done. No suprises and no middleman sales commission to keep client's costs down. I had 7 windows (Vinylbilt brand) put in my basement of a bungalow house. It took a day and a half for Arciel and Lien to do the installation. One must not forget even the small details like, the advice he provided for taking care of the vinyl windows, like putting some machine oil in the screen screws every so often and using jigloo lubricant (home depot) for vinyl to keep the slider windows gliding smoothly. The windows were insulated with Hilti foam and the exterior caulking (Supra Mulco) is of the highest grade. This caulking is simply the best and made in Quebec, designed for Canadian climate, won't dry or crack. I highly recommend this company and I am very happy with the work.

Replacement of Windows in 1920's House

Excellent! My faith in contractors just might have been restored after using Sobol Inc. From the start, the written quote was professional and very easy to understand. Archie was exceptional - helping us match the grill design and colour of the new windows to exactly match the existing ones. The installation was quick, clean and efficient and I cannot say enough about Maga and Liem - both great guys. I plan on using Sobol again to replace some doors and highly recommend them.

New master bedroom + Baby's room windows

Sobol just completed our project and I can't say enough positive things about this company. Our project consisted of a very large bay window, a picture window and a straight forward window in our 'soon-to-be-baby's-room'. Our home is about 100 years old and therefore, we were worried about the install right from the beginning. From start to finish, they have been professional, reasonable and their attention to quality and detail is impeccable. I would like to personally thank Archie for his amazing customer service, as well as Maga & Lien for their expert, clean and precise installation. We have used many window contractors in our livaes as my husband and I have renovated 3 properties now. I will absolutely use Sobol again when we are financially ready to replace the rest of the windows in our home.

New Window, Door Repar

Sobol was hired to replace an existing window and built a raised flashed ledge. Archie, the owner, did the small window installation for a reasonable cost and the work was completed to a better standard than I was expecting. As a second job, they repaired a door that was incorrectly installed by a previous contractor. Instead of just replacing the door, they reworked the hinges and jamb in a clever way. Maga, one of the installers, even filed the tops of the new screws so that they would look similar to the others. The clever repair cost less than originally quoted and the door works fine now. I am very happy with their service and have recommended them to others.

Windows replaced

We used Sobol Inc. to replace all the windows in our home. The owner, Archiel, provided a detailed and transparent estimate, and it was a lower price than the others we received. The crew was efficient, friendly and hard-working. They did an excellent job. This was the most pleasant, honest and reliable contractor I have encountered.

Two screen doors and two small windows

Sobol did a fabulous job, start to finish! I had two storm doors and two small windows installed and I couldn?t be happier. The price was exactly as quoted, which I appreciate after receiving quotes from larger companies where the quote changes depending on what special is on at the time, if I confirm today it?s this price, if I don?t it goes up to this price, etc. They were efficient, fast and very pleasant to deal with. I am thrilled with the end product and highly recommend them.

All new windows for old Toronto semi

I had an old Toronto 2 bedroom semi with old wooden windows that were very drafty and let in neighbourhood noise. Found Sobol on Homestars. Archie came over and measured, we talked about what I wanted. I wanted all new windows except the kitchen. I also wanted bigger living room windows as the old windows were very small. About 10 windows all types were instatted: double hung w/grills in the 2 bedrooms, a slider in the basement, big casements in living and dining, as well as side casements and picture windows for the remaining windows. Emailed estimate, requires a deposit to book the job, which is fair. Clean and courteous, fast and cleaned up after job. House looks great and is quiet and warm now. I would use this company again.

Windows and Door Replacement

This company was fantastic! I would recommend them to anyone. They were polite, quick, and paid attention to detail. If I had questions, even after the job was complete, they called me immediately, or if they were in the area, they would drop by. I don't know why more companies don't conduct themselves in this manner. You know who you are...Better Contracting!! Archie and his crew are second to none. After I had my basement and 2nd floor windows replaced, I was so pleased with their work...I called them to replace my side door. I will be using them again when I need my main floor windows replaced. This company impressed me, as they stood behind their word, they can be trusted...and you can't say that about many companies these days. Thanks guys!

Window/ wall turned into patri door!

We had hired Archie in the past for our windows in our 1950 bungalow last year, and were so pleased with his work, we called him back to turn a window, into a patio door. Archie and his team worked hard all day to get this huge project done - and went above and beyond what was needed. They took the bricks from the wall they were tearing out and filled up the old milk box as well as drywalling the inside of the kitchen where the milk box opening was. The crew is polite, friendly and above all, left the house as clean as they found it. You wouldn't even know there was work done (well besides the amazing new patio door!) We highly recommend Sobol Inc. They live up to all their high reviews.

Doors, windows for triplex

I contacted 5 of the top rated Homestars window companies for a quote on my triplex. All were within $3000 of each other, with Sobol on the higher end. Archiel was very accomodating and lowered his price to be more competitive. What swung the decision was Archiel's vastly superior customer service, in-depth technical/ installation knowledge, detailed quote, one-time measurements. It became very clear to me early on that he knew what he was doing. The scheduling for installation was not without its stumbling blocks but Archiel did what he could to make things happen. He even managed to get a new screen made for one of the existing windows where the other companies said it wasn't possible. Aside from some early issues with their website, I was very happy with the team (Maga, and ?; sorry, forgot the 3rd member of the group!). The installation went well, windows look great. I would, without hesitation, recommend them to anyone. PS. I gave them a '9' because 10 means perfect and I don't believe anyone is perfect. I would've given 9.5 if the option was available.

Front door replaced

Customer Service: Excellent overall - very professional, good communication - phone calls or emails returned the same day or by the next day. Very detailed estimate delivered as scheduled. Promptly arrived at the time scheduled, nice team of people. I didn't have any concerns about leaving the house while workers were there. Archiel was very patient with questions I had regarding types of lock, finishes, door glass. He is clearly knowledgeable about the quality of doors, locks and I felt confident about his knowledge. The scheduling of the actual installation was a little more delayed than I expected, in part because I had questions about the finish of the door and there may have been a communication problem with the person doing the scheduling. If you make it a point to follow up, this won't likely be an issue at all. Archiel is also very flexible regarding what type of lock, glass you want to use, etc but you will need to do the research on these options. Archiel does provide some websites to point you in the right direction. Product - installation of door done professionally including weatherstripping. The house is a lot warmer now! Regarding aesthetics, the finish of the door was darker and more towards "maroon", less "wood" like appearance than I had expected. I was looking for a walnut finish. I have seen fibreglass doors with finishes that are hard to distinguish from real wood. I wouldn't say that is true of my door because the colour is too maroon/burgundy. If you are particular about the finish, I would ask for an actual sample of the colour at the time of estimate. The Interior door frame - you should know that it will be unstained which I was aware after clarifying the estimate. I have an old house with a lot of moulding on doors and I think there were was a good attempt to re-create the frame after the old one was taken down but it isn't identical to the previous style. In part this was because their lumbar source didn't carry the same moulding, in part this was because some details were overlooked - to match the previous style, the wood piece over the door should be a little wider than the width of the door frame to give it the same "grand" appearance. The final product is fine, just not exactly what I expected. Of note, other companies would not even try to mimic the old style - they would plan to put in a plain wood frame around the door so what was installed by Sobol is better than I would have gotten from other companies. Again, if you are very particular, you would have to speak up to get the result you want. Overall - I would definitely recommend Sobol Installation. For my next door however, I would ask to see samples of the actual finish at the time of the estimate so I would know exactly what the final product would be. I would also be more specific about the details of the wood frame recreated around the door.

Window Replacements

Sobol Inc has three great things going for them: 1) Excellent, professional, courteous installers and staff 2) Quality product that they install - the windows have high quality hardware that will last, the frames to the screens are metal and look like they will last longer than some of the plastic framed screens from other manufacturers. 3) Good pricing - I got a similar quote from another company that was rated high for installation service but when I researched further the actual windows were getting bad reviews on other websites. The windows Sobol uses get good reviews on other websites.

Window repair

My rental unit in Toronto was missing one of the windows (one window slider frame). I called around and most of the companies told me that they do not do any repairs and they can only replace the whole window. Sobol was able to make the window frame and glass to fit the existing window and they even gave me an estimate from a picture I emailed them. Because I live in Niagara Falls, it was great that I didn't have to go up to Toronto to get the estimate! The work was done quickly and I am very happy with the result. I will use them again and I will recommend them to anyone.

We were very happy with the service from Sobol throughout the process. Archie came to our house on a weekend to provide the quote and was very friendly and professional. The quoted price was very good. Sobol scheduled us in for before my wife's due date. The baby came early and they were very accommodating in rescheduling the installation, holding our new window in storage for over 2 months while things settled down. We would not hesitate to recommend Sobol to anyone.

Replacement of Front Entry Door

I selected Sobol to replace my front entry doors based on their stellar rating on HomeStars and I was not dissappointed. My doors look fantastic and are the envy of the neighbourhood!! They are a 100% improvement from the previous door installation done a year ago. That was the worst door installation ever !!! (refer to my review of Hollywood Doors) Archiel is courteous and explains the entire job in detail so there are no surprises. I was a little apprehensive that Archiel himself did not install my doors, but his crew led by Maga did a superb job. He really took his time to do a proper job and I'm completely satisfied. They get my full recommendation and will not hesitate in using them again.

Fantastic service. Daily updates by staff and contacted by lead guy (Archiel) at beginning of, during and after installation was complete to make sure that we were satisfied. Totally professional.

All companies should have this kind of customer service and workmanship. A+++++++

Sobol Window replacement is great. The guys are professional,courteous, and extrememly tidy. We had no mess after having 16 windows replaced. The windows look great and work well. We had several problem windows that previous companies said they could not replace. Archie and the boys solved the problems. They removed part of an old deck to replace a basement window and designed a special mirrored window to replace an existing mirrored window in our bathroom. Every other company said that it was not possible to do. These guys are hard working and innovative. I would rehire them in a minute!

window replacement

I had three window estimators give us quotes on replacing many of the windows on our three story house. Archie impressed me right from the beginning. He did a thorough and detailed job of estimating. We had a mix of window types and Archie was the only one that knew what needed to be done for all of them. Archie and his crew started and finished the job when they said they would. It took a week and a half and at the end of every day there was no mess left around and no uncovered openings. The workmanship was excellent and I highly recommend Archie and his crew.

Basement window replacement

I reached out to Archie for a quote to replace our 4 basement windows, plus a single window on our 2nd floor. Archie came out, measured all the windows and was really thorough in his review of our existing windows. He did what the others didn't which was jump into the window wells to check them out up close. His quote was competitive - in the middle of all other quotes. He came out with his team (Maga & Lien) on a very very hot & humid July day to install the windows. I was impressed at the measures he took to make sure that all work areas were clean - they put drop sheets down on all areas from the front door right to where they were working. They did a great job. The windows look great, and the trim and caulking were done beautifully. We even asked Archie to add trim around an entry door to our garage (for him a small job...for my husband, a much larger job!). He did this for us too for a small charge, and it looks fantastic as well. All in all, I would highly recommend Archie and his team. We hired him, not based on cost, but first by his rating on HomeStars, and 2nd by his responsiveness, attention to detail, and lastly, his friendly professionalism. All of the windows are now done in our home, and I really wish I had found Sobol Inc. before, so they could have done the other ones!

Archie was a delight to work with - a true professional.

Front Door Replacement

We had several quotes for our front door replacement of our 90+ year old house...with original door! Archie was by far the most courteous and professional. He was also prompt with replies and offered very competitive rates. Too bad you can't review your other estimates. ( I couldn't believe how one in particular could be rated so highly on HomeStars after such a bad experience. And that's only with an estimate!) Anyhow, from the start Archie ensured that we were satisfied with our choices and he proved to be quite knowledgeable and helpful with details. The installation date was within a reasonable amount of time (slight set back because they wanted to perfect the colour we wanted). Archie and Maga were not only polite and hardworking, but had to problem solve some surprises. In the end, we ended up with a beautiful door that was meticulously and skillfully installed by Sobol Inc.

install of patio doors

Our job involved converting a glass block window to french patio doors. Because it involved cutting the wall open, we had many contractors quote and describe how they would complete the work until we felt confident that we found one who really knew what he was talking about. The completed job by Archie and his team was beautiful and we feel the quality of the work is very good. Not only that but Archie arrives when he says he will, returns all emails quickly, and was very helpful to show us the doors in advance at the factory. He provided a very detailed quote (more detailed than anyone else) and was extremely respectful in our home with our children and our floors/walls, etc. I would definitely recommend Sobol and hire them again if the need arises.

Doors replaced

I found Sobol Inc on Home Stars after another contractor told me that a screen door could not be installed on my front door. (Yes, Archie did it perfectly!) I was planning to install four screen doors but after Archie came out to measure, he advised me that I might be happier replacing two of my doors which were not in good shape. He introduced me to steel doors with working windows (so they double as a screen). He beautifully attached wrought iron bars over the windows to satisfy my security concerns. He is very patient and informative in the planning process as his philosophy is to have you happy with the end result. All the door frames were finished beautifully and I feel like my doors are pieces of functional art. Archie has not just exceptional skill?but a passion for what he does.

Windows, sliding door, and front door replacement

Having a history of good relations with Archiel, at Sobol Ibc., I called him again for another job. He answered very fast and came to see details of the work that needed to be done. He gave me a booklet to chose my favorite door, also provided several links to different sites, should I wanted other options. After we agreed to all details he provided an approximate time when the work will be performed; that evaluation proved to be accurate. The work was done one day faster than initially estimated. I considered the price to be fair for the work done and I appreciate the fact that Archiel has kept the same high standard of quality as I knew from previous experience with him and his company. I will call him for another job we already discussed about and would recommend him for any similar work that someone need to be performed.

Double Hung windows in 90 yr old home

I found Sobol Inc via Homestars and am thoroughly impressed by Archie's professionalism and customer service. When I initially asked for a quote, he came out at night so that both my husband and I could be there to ask questions. He went through the various window options with us and provided us with 2 different quotes from different window manufacturers. And when Archie came to install the windows, it was a clean, quick and very professional installation. The new windows look great. And about a week after the installation, I had a question/problem with one of the windows and Archie sent someone to my house the same day that I emailed him, to fix the problem and explain to me how to prevent it from happening again. Great customer service and great quality work. We will definitely call Sobol again when we decide to replace other windows in our house.

Complete Window replacement for our house

We noticed a marked difference right away with Sobol Inc from when Archie came to our house to quote for the job. Many other window guys from the big companies were arrogant, pushy and sales like, but Archie came on time, with good ideas and a sincere interest in our plans, along with hand on expirenece. His quote was superior, with a detailed cost breakout and pictures of the windows chosen. On installation day, the team was quick, courteous, friendly and extremely tidy. You wouldn't know that work had been done other than the great new windows in place! We highly recommend Sobol Inc. You will not be disappointed. We are calling them back to install a patio door in a window opening very soon.

Excellent service & reasonable price

I contacted Sobol Inc because of their positive reviews on Homestars after another company failed to return my call. Archie returned calls and emails promptly and scheduled an appointment to visit my home very soon after we spoke. When he came to give the quote, he was professional and courteous, offered suggestions that resulted in cost-savings, and was patient with my goofy puppy. The window were ready to be installed quite quickly after the order was placed, and the installer was equally as friendly and capable. The cost of the replacement windows was less than what I expected while the product is of good quality. Overall, I was very pleased with my dealings with Sobol Inc, and will be calling them again in the future.

New Windows, Doors and Basement Cut-out

I used the same window contractor for years and I asked him to quote my recent job. He took one look at the basement cut-out and basement door and said he couldn't do the job because it was too difficult. I found Archie (Sobol) on Homestars and he said he could do the entire job. My only other problem was that it had to be done fast and within a tight budget. Archie said he could deliver and his price was fair. The job was done on time and on budget. Archie is professional and organized.

Double Door Replacement

Like some of you, I was initially skeptical after reading all the glowing reviews/testimonials about Archie and his team on both Homestars and Sobol Inc.'s own website. Now that I have actually done business with them, I have to say that Sobol lived up to its exceptional reviews and exceeded my expectations at every turn. From the moment I called Archie a little over a week ago to completion yesterday, everything - site visit/estimate, written quotation, installation - went ON or AHEAD of schedule. I was especially impressed by Archie's responsive manner and the fact that he did not try to oversell or inflate his prices given the tight deadline that I had to meet for this project. I received higher quotes from other contractors who required more time. When Archie came on site to inspect the finished work, I asked him about the front door of the house, which was not opening and closing as smoothly as it could. Archie, Maga, and Yuri gladly agreed to fix the problem for a nominal fee. This reinforced my impression of Sobol as a nimble, accommodating firm that I am happy to recommend to everyone looking to have doors or windows replaced/serviced.

Window and Garden door replacement

Our 90 yr old house had 29 yr old windows that were in pretty bad shape and after a cold winter it was time to do something about it. The job included replacing 5 windows and a garden door with single-hung vinyl windows and a sliding patio door. All were argon-filled and Energy Star rated. After several weeks of self-education and research we called in 3 highly reputable and well reviewed companies listed on Homestars. One company can be considered large, one medium sized and Sobol Inc which was the smallest. Let me interrupt the review by saying that even getting to the point of choosing 3 companies was very difficult as there are is so much conflicting information in the marketplace about different kinds of windows and their respective performance, which manufacturer's produce quality products, which retailer/installer to use. In short it was a stressful process from beginning to end, but taking the time to educate myself before calling for estimates really helped. Pre-sales - We obtained quotes from all 3 companies. Archiel from Sobol was the first to respond to our call and arranged for a prompt on-site inspection. He was knowledgeable and provided many practical suggestions to my ideas and questions. A reasonable quote was provided quickly and his response to our many revisions was also quick. We decided to choose Sobol in part because we knew that as a smaller business with almost no marketing and no "Customer Service Department" their survival depended on word of mouth and good reviews. Still, it seemed like a risky decision at the time because for all we knew, Sobol could close shop any minute in comparison to larger companies. However, we felt that Archiel had been very responsive and would be personally accountable for our satisfaction and we were right. Sobol was able to work with the window manufacturer to deliver and schedule the install in a very tight timeline. Installation - Sobol's crew was on-time, courteous, and patient with my many questions while trying to do their work. I have to admit I felt bad for them during the install. It was a cold 2 days, the age of the house made for some unexpected difficulties, and I watched them like a hawk. I was impressed that while they worked quickly they were not in a rush to simply finish and leave. It was obvious to me that they take pride in the quality of their work. The installation, trim and aluminum exterior capping all exceeded my expectations. Post-sale - Archiel came to our house the day after the install to inspect each window and door to ensure that it was up to his standard and took the time to go through the operation and maintenance recommendations. In summary, we could not possibly be happier with our choice of Sobol Inc for this project. I would gladly be a reference for any homeowner looking to hire Sobol that wished to ask me questions about the entire experience.

Window Project

We bought an old home in the middle of winter where most of the windows needed to be replaced. Despite the time it took us to choose the type of windows, which ones needed replacing and the exterior color Archie never made us feel rushed or pressured. We were most impressed with his patience, honesty, and cooperation as he helped us with the decision making process. The windows were installed on time as scheduled weeks earlier. Archie was always communicating with us about timing and he kept his promises. The final product is extremely professional and the attention to detail and the extra finessing on the installation really shows top quality work. The exterior looks fantastic and the house now is significantly less drafty. Archie runs a great company. We are very pleased, and will use Sobol Inc. for any additional work. We wouldn't hesitate pass on a recommendation. Top marks! Thank you.

Three casement windows, three sliding windows

We had six windows replaced by Sobol Inc. in March 2011. Archie and Uri were clean, courteous and got the tricky installation done very quickly. They responded to all of our questions and provided a detailed tutorial on the operation and maintenance of our new windows. We would use Sobol Inc. again and will readily refer them to our friends. For vinyl window fabrication and installation these guys are a great choice.

Installation of windown in stairwell

Sobol Inc came recomended by a close friend. We had several quotes to add a window to the stairwell which involved cutting through the exterior wall. Sobol Inc matched the lowest quote. The installers were professional and used extreme care while working both inside and outside the house in poor weather conditions. We are very happy with the window, the installation, and would recomend Sobol Inc to our family and friends.

Window Replacenet

If you've read any of my prior reviews then your aware then you know I've been through the ringer with my house and I've seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. I've used a myriad of contractors to renovate and repair my home so when I tell you that Sobol does excellent work take it at face value. 1. Cordial and Respectful from Estimate to Completion of Job. 2. Punctual 3. Neat and Clean (layed plastic throughout the entire house where they were working, broom swept, disposal removal) 4. Offer warranty on their work 5. Very Satisfied with the completion of the Project 2. Showed up on Time

I called several companies from Homestars,Archiel was the one responsed quickest. He came to my house for estimate, very friendly and has perfessional knowledge, and his estimate was fair and his installtion time met our timeline. He came on site as he promised on Saturday to do the installation, he did an exceptional job, efficient and detail focus. We are very happy with his work and no hesitate to recommend Archiel and Sobol Inc to anyone who needs to install windows.

Replacement of windows and doors

We moved into a 100 year old house six months ago and quickly discovered that all our windows and doors needed to be replaced. We met with four other window and door companies before met Archie. He was a true professional from the start. He immediately made my husband and I feel comfortable regarding his knowledge and ability. His cost estimate was not the cheapest nor the most expensive, but he established himself as trustworthy and honest. He and his team did an amazing job. They cleaned up after themselves every day and really took that extra time to do a thorough job. It is rear to find a trades person that cares so much about customer service in my experience. I was blown away by Archie's diligence and level of service. I would highly recommend him.

Exterior Door Installation

We needed an exterior door installed to our basement quickly because winter was on its way and we didn't have a proper door. Sobol Inc did a better than expected job. The doorway was VERY uneven because it wasn't part of the original 100yr old structure. The installer spent a lot of time to make sure that the doorframe fit. We wouldn't hesitate to receommend or use them again.

2 front doors, back sliding door, 3 basement windows

The team at Sobol Inc was responsive, professional and efficient from the start. "Boss" Archiel came by the house and provided a detailed and accurate estimate of the job. As soon as the inventory arrived the appointment soon followed. The project was completed within 2 days. The professionals working on the job did an exceptional job - peformed it with focus and detail. In addition they were professional and also had a good sense of humour. Archie came back after the job to check on the work - I appreciated this "quality assurance" check. I have already recommended him to a friend and will do so again.

Window Installation

I received four estimates to replace five windows in a residential unit of an old building, all from top-rated HomeStars window installation companies. Not only was Archie the most thorough at explaining the various options and the most informative when responding to my questions, but he also provided the best price quotation. When his crew arrived for the installation, they worked quickly and efficiently and finished ahead of schedule. They also cleaned up the work site completely. The windows look great and are exactly what I wanted. The highest compliment I can pay Sobol Inc. is that I will use them again for any window and door work I need done.

Basement new window

Being a trademan my self I get to see a lot of good and bad work out there,some companies are in the business just for the money,others care about customers,take pride in their jobs and understand that without quality and customer satisfaction over anything else there will be no sucessfull business.For Archie and his company customer satisfaction always comes first. Archie came to our house to install a window in our basement, but before he was called to do the job I asked several people if they could do it ,but they kept saying it was too complicated so I called Archie and he said he would do the job and he explained what he was going to do without any complication.He did the job VERY PROFESSIONAL as he promised,he left the place clean and neat. No wonder this guy was recommended to me by a home inspector; with Archie there is no cutting corners,he knows what he is doing and he does it amazingly well. I highly recommend Sobol Inc. to anyone looking for a professional windows and doors installer.

New windows on 3rd floor of Victorian

We needed some new windows for the 3rd floor of our Victorian. I did lots of research including checking Homestars. I got Archie in for a quote. The quote was very fair and I felt like we were in safe hands. Archie was a pleasure to deal with and everything went smoothly. Everything was done as described and I do not hesitate to recommend Sobol Inc and Archie to anyone.

Replacement Windows

It didn't take long after moving into a 90 year old home to realize that hiring and dealing with contractors is no easy task. It's always a hard decision to choose a contractor that you have never worked with before. I found out about Sobol on homestars and all the reviews we're accurate. The installers we're clean and professional and Archiel was kind and accommodating. I love the windows and a job well done. They went above and beyond what I expect of a window installer. Highly recommended.

window installation

There's a reason that after 42 (now 43) reviews, Archie and Sobol Inc have a perfect score. Archie went above and beyond in walking two first timers through the process. He was quick to answer all of our questions, and we threw a lot of them at him. I would recommend Sobol Inc to anyone in the market for new windows. Great prices and great workmanship. Thanks Archie.

Window Replacement

We found Sobol Inc through Homestars and couldn't be happier with the job they did replacing almost all of the windows in our 3 storey home. Archie was always very patient and willing to explain the details of the window installation. I e-mailed Archie many times with questions and he always provided prompt and courteous replies. We had an original 90+ year old stained glass window in the front of the house which I wanted to have inserted between two panes of glass in a fixed window above a single-hung window below. All of the other contractors that quoted on the job said they couldn't do it and encouraged me to simply hang the stained glass in a frame in front of the window, which would have interfered with raising the window below. Archie went out of his way to make it work and hand delivered the stained glass to a separate company who prepared the window insert. It was completed the week after Archie had finished replacing the rest of our windows. Archie came after hours to install it himself and we are thrilled with the results. Archie and his crew were very hardworking, clean and efficient and managed to complete the work within 3 days. I highly highly recommend Sobol Inc and have already done so to many of my friends, neighbours and colleagues. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again in the future. Archie is amazing!!

Replaced bathroom window

We needed a small window in our bathroom shower stall replaced on a tight timeline. We called Sobol Inc based on the Homestars recommendations and we couldn't be happier. Within a day of e-mailing, Archie came out (exactly at the time he said he would) measured our window and quoted us at a much lower price than everyone else we spoke to. The window actually arrived early! Again, Sobol Inc arrived to put in the window exactly when they said they would, very neatly and efficiently. I would definitely recommend this company.

Replaced 9 windows and 3 doors

Archie and his team (the politest and cleanest group around!) replaced all the windows and 3 doors in my home over a 3 day period. My tiny home is not air-conditioned, is very old with lopsided walls and uneven angles. Despite this, and having to work in searing heat,the team did an exceptional job, was very professional and I would easily recommend them to anyone wanting windows and doors replaced. No wonder they have received such great ratings in the past!

Replaced 9 windows and 1 door

I truly have nothing negative to say about Archie and his team...they exceeded our expectations. We had 3 quotes in addition to Archie's. His was not the lowest (pretty close) but was the most comprehensive. He broke down the costs so that we could perform a proper comparison?problem was, two of the other quotes we received included no real breakdown. (This goes without saying, but, if your contractor cannot show you a line-by-line account of his/her estimates, do not consider doing business with them). I have no reservations whatsoever recommending Sobol. None!

Century Downtown Home, All Windows Replaced

I found Archie (Sobol Inc) through Homestars and got a quote from him along with one other highly recommended installer. Surprisingly, they both sourced the same window company, so it was a perfect comparison when the quotes came in. Based on previous reviews, I was expecting Archie to come in higher, imagining that he would win out with better service, and was pleasantly surprised to see his quote was almost $1000 lower. So we happily booked him! Then came the decision process. Archie was totally patient with us as we made 3 or 4 revisions over the course of a few weeks, and helped us decide on the windows we really wanted. His view is that it is better to take your time and get all the tiny details right before the job starts, a refreshing concept in a city full contractors looking to get in and out and just get your money. 3-4 weeks later they started the install over the course of 3 days. This included all of our windows being replaced (we have a wonky un-level old house which posed tons of problems with installing),and the addition of 2 new windows where there were previously just walls. The workmanship on installation was perfect, the flashing on the exterior flawless, but our biggest joy came from how nice, kind, and clean they were. They tarped every room before working, and at the end of each day, our house was totally cleaned and back to normal as if nobody was ever there. Working with Archie has the comfort level of working with family (if you like your family that is!), and we couldn't be more happy with this whole experience. I highly recommend Sobol Inc for any job!! Thanks again Archie, Stephen

I needed to replace some windows and was extremely pleased with the quality of work and service by Sobol. Their pricing is very reasonable, and Archiel took the time to explain the features of the types of windows available, to help me make the right choice. They were punctual, quick and efficient in doing the work, and left the place clean and tidy. The windows look great. I recommend this company very highly.

Replacement of sliding glass patio doors

Due to the good reviews on this site, I called Archie and received a quote over the phone. His price was the best and he gave me the website to view the products he used. The products looked good so we set up a date for him to do the installation. We are SO happy with our new door. It not only looks good, but Archie and his helper did a great job at installation. It's caulked all the way around, he removed all debris and left the place as clean as could be. Not only that but our original window frame is intact and was never touched ( unlike other window installers who sometimes damage the original frame which can be an added expense ) I would not hesitate to use him again!

Dining Room and Breakfast Room windows

My neighbour knew I was thinking of replacing a few more windows in the house. She had Archiel over to give her an estimate and he was mre then willing to come over to my place right after he finished with her. He took all the measurements right then and there and a few days later sent me an estimate for the windows. His price was more then reasonable and he was a delight to work with. He was professional, showed up when he said he would. They left the work areas spotless and you would not know they had been there. I love the new windows and will definetly use his services again and recommend Archiel to my friends.

Doors and Windows Replacement

How to choose a good and reliable doors and windows installer? We had that question in our minds for a while. I asked around and my next door neighbour recommended Archiel. They told me how please they were with Archiel?s pricing and workmanship for the work done to their house. Archiel had replaced many doors and windows around my neighborhood. When we moved into our house, we noticed that the doors and windows were badly installed. We contacted Archiel many times to decide what is the best for our house. Archiel has been very patient and courteous during our discussions in selecting the doors and windows. He has in depth knowledge with what he does. We finally selected Archiel?s company. They came on time during the installation and they did an excellent job. They paid attention to details and cleaned up before they leave. During the installation, Archiel has a potential customer who wanted to see his workmanship before signing the contract. We showed him the installed windows around the house and that sealed the deal. We showed some of our friends our newly installed doors and windows and they were also impressed with the quality and workmanship. One of them also engaged Archiel to replace their windows. We learnt an important lesson for our installation. Do not select the company based on the lowest price because this does not guarantee a good installation. Not all installers are equal. We would prefer to be happy knowing that the installer did a good job than to regret later. We will recommend Archiel to all our friends who want to replace their doors and windows.

Now I realize that the title is an understatement; Archiel will be a pleasant surprise to anyone who needs his services and contacts him. His doing a very good job in assessing your needs and wishes and will recommend you the best offer. His team and himself will do a very good job and you'll be left with a clean space when they leave. I have no idea how the products he installs will fare in time, but what they do shows good. Recommended for work and reasonable prices.

new window installation

This is the third project by Archie for us considering he started with a close family friend who recommended him; then installed a new set of windows for our parents and now, a brand new window for us. Archie is terrific; well organized, efficient, clean and quick. He knows his trade extremely well and is able to resolve special needs, as the job necessitates. Moreover, he is an advocate for his clients, if required. His intervention with an energy audit firm resolved a potentially large headache. He is easily available by phone and/or on line. His prices are competitive, but that was not what sold us. His expertise and installation procedures are what did: his work is neat, clean, not disruptive. We recommend him without reservation.

Outside storm door

I called Sobol based on Home Stars reviews. I did not require a big job but rather a new storm door. His estimate was reasonable for the work required.Archie gave me a quote on line after I e-mailed him pictures. No inflated costs as he had not met me nor seen my property. He did not try to oversell any extras which was refreshing. My old door was very old and warping had occurred in the frame. Archie went out of his way to spend extra time(more time than I would expect a large company would have been prepared to spend)trying to rectify the problem. Archie left no garbage behind and disposed of my old door and frame as well. He is even coming back to do some caulking that was unexpected. Archie is a perfectionist and very personable. I highly recommend Archie and Sobol to anyone needing his services!!!!!

windows and doors replacement

We had a great experience with Sobol Inc. in installing our windows and doors. We had called three other window installers who never got back to us once they found out we wanted to keep our current california shutters. But for Archie this wasn't an issue at all. He was quick on the delivery of the windows yet took his time installing with great attention to detail. Archie also had no issue with small changes and additional projects we had requested along the way. We are very satisfied and would recommend them to everyone.

Complete doors and windows change over

Archie from Sobol Inc. was referred to us from our friend Winnie, who has been a client of Archie?s for years. Our first impression of Archie was that he is professional, honest, and trustworthy and has high standard. After we checked out his work, we decided to hire him to change the windows and doors of our 20-year old house. Since this is a quite a long-term investment, I am meticulous on the quality of windows and doors he uses. Archie patiently explained to us how they choose the manufacturers based on quality, warranty and price. I was impressed by his eagerness of educating us on the various options available. Archie and his team?s craftsmanship is topnotch. Describing them as paying attention to detail would be an understatement. They are passionate about what they do and are proud of their work. They always consult us if questions arise. Neediness to say, they deliver more than what we expected. I would highly recommend Archie and his team for anyone who is considering to change their windows or doors. I have full confidence that those who hire them would be happy with their decision.

Replacement of patio doors and surrounding trim

The floor just inside our patio door looked as though it had been damaged by leaking water. A friend of ours recommended Archiel from Sobol Inc. to come and take a look. He was thorough in explaining what was causing the leak and how it could be fixed. Almost all of the windows in our house suffer from water leakage, which eventually causes damage to the floor around them. I wanted to replace all of the windows but was very skeptical about who I ask to fix them. I've heard some horror stories about hiring the wrong people for the job. I decided to give Archiel a call and asked him to replace the patio doors only. He did a professional job from start to finish on replacing the patio doors as well as the aluminum trim work. I was impressed overall with the quality of the work, the professional attitude of the team, as well as the ability to remain on budget as quoted. I will definitely ask Archiel/Sobol Inc. to work with us to replace the rest of the windows in our house. Mike Y. Thornhill.

Windows and doors

Archie initially installed a basement entrance door, he did an excellent job, then I called him back to to install a storm door. When he finished his job, he realized that the wall above the basement window was cracking. The prior contractor did not put a mantel on top of a basement window. I did not notice, Archie did notice. He fixed the window and the wall!!! He is very professional, punctual, reasonable and very friendly... I had very bad experiences with contractors, specially being a woman and being so inexperienced in these things. Archie is fair and will not take advantage.. he is very honest. most important,his work is guaranteed !!!

window replacement & chimney brickwork maintenance

We live in a house which was constructed in 1971. During all these years, very little maintenance was required. This year we had windows changed and brickwork repaired on our chimney by Archie's company. We hired him several years ago after we saw him doing work at our back neighbour. At that time, Archie replaced some windows and we found him to be a very clean efficient and professional. Last year, Archie replaced more windows, including a very large living room window. As well, Archie did a thorough inspection of the chimney and reported to us with video pictures on the work necessary. Since the chimney is about 30 feet above ground, it was Archie's innovative approach in estimating the extent of the work required. We could actually see the work area before we gave him the go ahead and we were able to follow up on the progress of the work.

Window lights in door, vinyl siding, caulking exterior

I moved into a new neighborhood and the house was clad with wood siding. I noticed a neighbor had put vinyl siding up and asked who did it as it looked very professional. I contacted Archie of Sobol Inc. who came to quote the work which originally was to put siding over the wood cladding and cap all wood around the doors and pillars with aluminum. He noticed the caulking was in need of replacing, and a ripped screen door. He mentioned he could also do that work when I was ready. I was unaware that he could do these repairs and had planned to do them so asked him to add them to his quote. I also had two windows in my double entry front door which I wanted replaced and asked if he could do this also. He quoted the work in a timely manner and was ready to start within a week. Archie arrived on the date promised with one assistant Goram. They immediately started and made good progress the first day. I had a doorbell button which had come off and had a new one to replace it which they fixed for me at no charge. Goram teased him and asked if he wanted him to use a level to install the doorbell. Quality and pride of workmanship was evident in the end result and the whole experience after an especially difficult move was so pleasant I recommended him to two friends right away. People on the street had also observed him and the quality of the workmanship all said and done He had six interested parties who wanted quotes. Hallelujah a contractor that would make Mike Holmes proud. Thanks Archie and Goram.

Installing 4 outside doors; installing custom glass floor; replacing large (8 x7 ft) window; intstalling window stoppers;

Archie of Sobol Inc was recommended to me by my cousin. In dealing with Archie I have found that he is a very skilled carpenter that not only does quality door and window installation, but he can perform other projects with skill and dedication. I needed to have a custom glass floor installed and didn't have any idea who specializes in such work. I realized that from dealing with Sobol, that they handle glass installation so i inquired. Archie and his crew came by, read the instructions, did some problem solving regarding the job site and installed my floor with high quality precision!! They are proffessional and extremely trustworthy. I would and have recommended them to my friends and family. I will answer any questions regarding Sobol inc if you email me!

Window and Door Installation

I've used Sobol Inc for a couple of projects, and Archie and his team are always on-time, on-budget and on top of everything. What I like best is the exacting nature of the installation - they are perfectionists! To date, I have purchased three exterior doors and a number of windows. I would definitely recommend Sobol Inc for those who like perfection in their home.
