    When looking for replacement windows in Edmonton there are plenty of things you have to keep in mind.

    Do you want your windows to be locally manufactured? Are you interested in a full-service approach, or do you want supply only? Are you looking for a variety of products or just different styles of vinyl windows or, maybe, doors in Edmonton?

    Today we’re going to revisit two companies we have previously reviewed. Both of these companies offer a full-service window replacement, and both make windows locally in Edmonton. All Weather Windows is the older company, and Cambridge Window Manufacturing Inc. (no longer in business) is the younger of the two.

    All Weather Windows Edmonton

    • HomeStars: 8.3
    • BBB: A+

    About
    One of the better-known window companies in Canada, All Weather has been in business since 1978. All Weather has two manufacturing facilities with a head office in Edmonton. The company continuously proves its credibility being one of the local leading window brands.

    Product
    All Weather Windows specializes in aluminum clad PVC and full vinyl residential window windows. They manufacture and supply entry, garden, and patio doors. All Weather Windows also offer their own installation services for customers in Edmonton. Going with a full-service approach company is often better for any potential window and door warranties service you may need. Because everything is done in-house these kinds of companies are usually more committed to resolving installation related problems than companies that just supply the product. 

    Certifications

    • CSA certified and Energy Star rated
    • Window Wise and Installation Masters Certification for installers
    • Best of HomeStars ’10, ’11, ’12 

    Warranty
    All Weather offers a 20-year comprehensive transferable warranty on their sealed units and a 5-year warranty on installation labour. You can find their full warranty package information in this guide.

    As with most window companies, the biggest areas of concern for customers in online reviews were issues with following up, scheduling, and providing service on the damaged product.

    Cambridge Window Manufacturing Ltd. (no longer in business)

    • Homestars: 8
    • BBB: NOT ACCREDITED (lost accreditation)

    About
    Cambridge Windows has been operating in Edmonton since 1996 but has no longer been in business since 2017.

    Product
    Cambridge specialized in custom made energy-efficient PVC windows in Edmonton. There were two lines of product, the high-end awning and casement style windows, and budget end slider and hung windows. They also manufactured steel and fiberglass entry doors, garden doors and sliding patio doors.

    Certifications

    • Had an Energy Star ceritification

    Warranty
    Cambridge had a detailed outline of what was covered under their warranty on their website. Their warranty covered PVC extrusions for the lifetime of the product (usually twenty-five years).

    There was no specific mention about the lifetime of the insulated glass units though there was one difference between Cambridge and other companies. Although the company offered a five-year labour warranty on installation issues, the labour on replacing sealed units or any warranty related parts is only for two years.

    Cambridge Windows Reviews

    When it comes to homeowner reviews, the company had a good rating of 8/10 on HomeStars. Still, since it is no longer in business, the reviews got worse, with many previous customers unhappy that no one answered the calls and many windows cracked or leaking.

    Cambridge also lost their BBB accreditation (when still were operating) due to unresolved customer complaints. Just like with other companies, most customers felt they weren’t communicated with properly throughout the project, and when requiring service.

    Although businesses are not required to have a BBB accreditation, compliance with the bureau is a good sign of companies making an effort to work with clients and solve outstanding issues.

    Conclusion

    Since Cambridge Windows is no longer in business, it is hard to conclude anything about their window installation services in Edmonton.

    All Weather is obviously the veteran in the industry and is one of the better-known companies across the country, offering durable windows for Edmonton climate, decent warranties, window material choice, innovative technologies and energy-efficient solutions.

    F.A.Q.

    As of the time of the article, Cambridge Windows is no longer in business. Customers are advised to consider other manufacturers like Ecoline Windows or All Weather for new window installations or replacements in Edmonton.

    Both All Weather Windows and Cambridge Windows have been known for their quality products. All Weather Windows offers a wide range of high-quality, energy-efficient window options. While Cambridge Windows was in business, it also had a reputation for quality. However, with Cambridge no longer in operation, homeowners need to consider other brands like Ecoline or All Weather for their projects.

    All Weather Windows provides various custom window options to meet different architectural styles and personal preferences in Edmonton. Customers can choose from multiple styles, materials, and finishes to match their home’s design and energy efficiency needs.

    Since Cambridge Windows is no longer in business, getting direct support or replacements for their products may be challenging. Homeowners might need to consult with local window experts or look for alternative manufacturers like Ecoline Windows or All Weather for support and replacement options.
