Replacement Windows in Forest, ON
Forest is like many communities in Southwestern Ontario, when it was first settled is was carved out of a dense forest and logging was the first signs of economic activity for the community in its infancy. At that time Forest was fortunate to have a railway running through the community to help it get the lumber to market for construction in major Ontario centres. Once the land was cleared farming took hold as the next big industry and again the railway was the conduit to civilization for the goods to be exported and wealth for the community to be built. Located in the area just west of Lake Huron, Forest experiences higher than average precipitation that helps the farming community that is still active to this day. The town of Forest enjoys a natural amphitheatre that surrounds an island just to the south of town and many plays are produced and performed where the residents can sit on the hills that overlook the island for entertainment. Apart from the town’s eclectic interests, it is a bedroom community for residents who work in Sarnia and to a lesser extent London. The local economy is made up of factories that support the auto industry and community is prosperous for its size with a population of just over 2500.
Balancing industry, is tourism, with the town’s close proximity to Lake Huron, they act in a support role for vacationers, providing lodgings, meals and support services for visitors who come to the area.

When the contractor arrives at your home for a consultation for a windows replacement in Forest, check his truck for one important piece of information. If he licensed to work as a contractor he will have his license number printed on the truck – more often than not contractors will apply for the license number as a form pre-validation and a demonstration that they are legitimate. Another detail to nail down is the insurance question – no insurance means that he isn’t playing by the rules.
There are two different ways a contractor can complete the installation and one is using a crew he has working full-time or conversely, he can use a subcontracting crew for the work. Employing people means the contractor has a commitment to the work beyond getting paid and he would give you more than a get in and get out crew.
