Replacement Windows in Lucan
Posted in Service Areas, on July 19, 2017 By Admin
The town of Lucan has a dark past; a feud between two families had all the elements of the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s feud with the ensuing murders and mayhem that dominated the feud. Back in 1880, a local group, who to this day haven’t been identified, murdered five members of the family that were known as the Black Donnellys. This case is well known across Ontario and through the US, many books have been written about the Irish family that was massacred on that cold February night and the local lore says the feud lives on to this day.
Apart from the grisly murders back in 1880, the town of Lucan enjoys some notoriety for a weather event that transpired in 2010. During the period of Dec. 4-8, the town was buried under a huge snowfall that the locals called ‘Snowmageddon,’ when the town received 177cms of snow over a 102-hour period and it snowed for 98-hours consecutively. It made for a white Christmas.
Apart from these two events, Lucan has been an average community that found its’ way into existence in the early 1700’s when the community was settled. Agriculture was a staple of Southwestern Ontario and Lucan had many farms that produced food for export to larger communities in Southern Ontario. When the railway went through Lucan they were somewhat emancipated and no longer dependent on the Lake Huron and waterways in the area to transport goods to market.
Another little-known fact about Lucan is it became a settlement for free Blacks escaping racial persecution before the American Civil War. Many made the 500km trip to set down roots in a new country that provided sanctuary and refuge from the poor treatment they received at the hands of the Americans.
Lucan is sill an agrarian community and the township of just over 4000 still work from sun up to sundown in the fields, growing cash crops for major urban centres.
The town has a rich history and many older buildings that date back to simpler times.

When you need to hire a contractor for replacement windows in Lucan you should go over a checklist of sorts to make sure you are getting the best contractor available.
The first thing that should become apparent is the need to hire a local contractor for replacement windows in Lucan. You can verify a contactor’s references for local work for replacement windows in Lucan and the best part is the networking opportunity it provides for interaction with other customers. Winnow the list down to two or three contractors and that is the best way to achieve success for replacement windows in Lucan. Businesses usually consult three different sources for work they need and it is good policy for a consumer to do the same.
Evaluating a contractor needs to see a cursory glance at his bona fides for replacement windows in Lucan. It starts with verifying his insurance and his municipal license registration to make sure his claims as a professional contractor are legitimate.
When you are talking to the contractor, ask him how he staffs the job if he is one to be chosen for the work. Some contractors use a subcontracting group that is more mercenaries working for the best price, while different contractors keep a crew at hand. That says a contractor is an established company and a going concern at his level of the business and bodes well for your windows installation.
One of the biggest disconnects when buying products or services is misunderstandings about the warranties and how they cover the work and the labour for replacement windows. When using our company we stand behind our work for 10-years, and our supplier has a 25-year warranty for the windows we install. When you talk to a contractor or two, ask about the warranties that will be provided, what the timeline is and what special considerations are included with the warranty.
To make the interview complete, a written estimate should come from the contractor without asking. That is his bid for the job and gives you something to shop around with – but if the estimate is low it could be a sign of inferior products or the labour won’t be what you expect – so use it as a guide when purchasing replacement windows.
It is easy to know when your windows need replacing – the first question to ask yourself is how old are my windows now? If the answer is I don’t know, or more than 10-years-old, you need new, energy efficient windows. Windows made before that time weren't manufactured to be energy efficient. Or, if you have single pane windows, you know you have a problem, just as you know draughty windows need to be replaced.
