Replacement Windows in Watford, ON
In the beginning, the town of Watford – known as Brown’s Corners in those days – was a stagecoach stop on the road between Warwick and Brooke Township. The town had little in the way of amenities in those days, and in the tradition of western movies, they had a hotel, a saloon, barbershop and general store that serviced the needs of the traveler. Outside of the town, logging was a staple until the forest was cleared and farming became the economic foundation of the community. There was little in the way of inter-regional trade for Watford at that time – then the railway became the economic driver for the community to sell their crops to other markets. The railway was such important piece of infrastructure to the residents of Watford they moved the town closer to the tracks to accommodate travelers and traders on the route.
During a celebration of Guy Fawkes Day in 1880, the town was ‘accidentally’ burned to the ground and they had to start over. As the decades passed Watford maintained its’ position as a farming community and the incremental change to a mercantile economy was slow to take hold. Industry made small inroads in the community, but it wasn’t until 1972 that the community got its’ first large-scale factory operation. Watford is one the many sites that have received a financial benefit as a host for unwanted refuse from Toronto and continues to receive payments for their hosting and recycling of the Big Smoke.
Most of the town was rebuilt in the late 1880’s after the fire, but many of those buildings still remain intact and are a testament to the history that the town enjoys.

Once you have been able to validate a contractor, check with him on how will address the labour question for the work that needs to be done. He can have a crew ready and waiting to go to work, or he can enlist the services of a subcontracting crew to meet the requirements of the work.
