Retrofit installation means removing of glass, glass stoppers and in some cases horizontal or vertical posts. This leaves the original frame and interior finishing on the inside and brick mould undisturbed and fully intact. Once the new window is in, aluminum capping is installed from outside and in most cases a ¾ cove is attached to the frame and window from inside. Our addition of caulking prevents water penetration to windows, aluminum, brick and siding.
Stud-to-stud installation involves removing of the interior casing, exterior brick mould and the frame of original window. In most cases, new windows come with the factory attached brick mould and jam extension (either wood or vinyl). Casing (trim) is attached to the installed window on inside. Caulking is used on the exterior to seal the gap between brick mould and brick or siding.
Entrance door installations consist of removing the existing doorframe, casing and brick mould. Often, if the sidelight or transom are part of the existing door they will be removed as well. Our finishing process includes casing on the inside and brick mould on the outside.
Sliding door installation consists of removing the existing panels and the frame. The door gets finished with new casing on the inside and aluminum capping on the outside. 5', 6' or 8' sliding doors come in two panels (one fixed and one sliding). Larger sizes are available in three or four panel sets.
Storm doors are typically installed on the brick mould of existing door.

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 [...] Read More →
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 [...] Read More →
This fine gentle man has the best service and is very detailed in his work. The doors looks awesome and he even called to follow up. Highly encourage you to call him.
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 [...] Read More →
