Whats the difference between changing my windows with and without changing the frames?
Other glass shops may only offer to change your entire windows, including your frames, which can equate to a very large bill. At Vitrerie Vaudreuil, we offer you a better solution.

We change the glass to allow a clear and beautiful view while working with the frames already in place.

How can I tell if my windows need replacing?
Besides the obvious broken window cunundrum, your windows may need to be changed if you notice:
- Cold spots near them
- They are hard to clean
- They are foggy
- They are misty
- They look dirty all the time, even when you've just cleaned them
Should I change all of my windows at the same time?
You may notice that some of your windows need replacing while others seem ok. Should you change them all at the same time? The straight answer is no, but it depends on how soon those other widnows will need to be changed. Our experts can cloely analyze each window and tell you approximately how long is left to yout 'windows life'. That way we can recomment which ones to change, and which not to, so you can save money, time, and frustrations years down the line.
I've heard your can have small holes made in your windows to clean them without changing them. Is that any good?
Unfortunately no. This is a costly temporary bandaid at best. Basically your windows are pierced (never a good idea) to then be cleaned from the inside. Then a simple plug is placed to cover the hole made. Unfortunately this will not resolve the cause for your windowd to become dirty, foggy, or misty int he first place. Within a few months your windows will look just as bad as they did before. But your bank account will be a few thousand dollars lower. Changing the glass without changing the frame is a much better solution and wont cost you much more.
What's the difference between a mirror at a glass shop vs what I buy in a decor store?

Our mirrors are of the highest quality, they won't distort your reflection, exagerate light reflections, streak and get damaged easily, and so much more.
