Replacement sliding patio doors Recently, the glass seals in our sliding patio doors failed and we were left with moisture constantly undulating between panes like a lava lamp from the 60s. We researched the market for replacement doors and eventually met with Spiros, the owner of GEM Windows & Doors on The Queensway in Etobicoke. He showed us 3 products at 3 different price points and thoroughly explained the features of each. We chose the least expensive unit and then Spiros told us he might be able to get us an equivalent quality product from a different manufacturer for even less money – we were all in. Given current Covid-19 manufacturing issues, our delivery timeline was 4 to 6 weeks. In just about 4 weeks to the day, our product arrived, an installation appointment was scheduled for the next business day, the installers arrived at the prescribed time and completed the job within approximately 3 hours, leaving our room clean and debris-free. The doors appear to be top-notch and now we can actually see through the glass. Thank you Spiros and GEM for a job well done. Mike & Grethe, South Etobicoke

Five or so years ago, I bought a custom barbecue cover from Costas at CUVERS because the cheap ones we were buying previously kept falling apart after just one season. It was a rather complex design because of the BBQ's irregular dimensions but fit perfectly. Since then, although the cover itself is still in great condition, part of the zippers had deteriorated due to constant S.W. sun exposure so we took the cover to Costas and not only did he replace the zippers but added a protective strip over them to prevent future deterioration and no doubt, adding many more good years of use to the cover. At the same time, we also bought a colorful chair slipcover and the total cost of the work on the BBQ cover and the new chair slipcover was remarkably reasonable so much so that I had to ask Costas if it was enough. I want to thank Costas again for doing such a great job repairing and improving our BBQ cover and also to say that the chair cover works perfectly and even brightens up our deck with its fancy green stripes. I highly recommend Costas and his company CUVERS - you certainly will not be disappointed. MikeS from Etobicoke
