Our door installation and window installation processes consist of five simple steps:

  • window and door replacement process

    Step 1 – Introductions, Home Visit and Quote

    Hello! We always arrange a brief visit before creating and sending you a quote.

    • We can provide you with information about your options, and help you find the best solution for your needs and budget.
    • We’ll send you a quote by email, along with a few more details about our company and qualifications.
    • All you have to do is respond to our email to accept the quote.
  • window and door replacement process

    Step 2 – Welcome Email

    We’ll send you a work order after we’ve received your agreement by email.

    This document will include all important details pertaining to the job, including approximate installation date and type of installation. It’s the perfect place and time for you to give us any important instructions, like “don’t let the cat out of the bathroom” or “be careful near the rose bushes.”

  • window and door replacement process

    Step 3 – Second Home Visit and Measurements

    An installation foreman will arrange a time to measure the windows and doors we’ll be replacing. With a focus on communication and respect, our personable team will answer any questions, as well as make note of any special requests you may have.

    Next, we place your order and wait for your customized items to arrive.

  • window and door replacement specialists

    Step 4 – Scheduling Your Installation

    As soon as your custom made to order windows and/or doors are almost ready, we’ll confirm a mutually beneficial installation date with you. Depending on how many windows and/or doors you have to replace, the job will generally take anywhere from one to four days to complete. This is estimated and communicated before the work begins.

  • How Do Window Installers Learn Their Trade?

    Step 5 – Installation and Payment

    Now it’s time for our in house master installation crews to get to work! During the window installation (and/or door installation), our sales representative will often come by to make sure everything is proceeding according to plan, at this time we typically receive payment for the work.

We are so pleased with our new windows! Long Life did our whole townhouse. From start to finish this company paid attention to every detail. The team that came was friendly, professional, and clean!!! They left my floors cleaner than when they arrived! The caulking is perfect. The install was so smooth. Highly recommended!! Thanks Paul and team!

We were notified about a week ago that our new windows were in, and this past Friday and today were our install days. One word that sums up the purchase and install is “amazing!” The install crew were extremely careful and clean inside the house, very polite, and efficient is an understatement. 16 windows and a patio sliding door all done in 2 days!! I almost want to say too bad I won’t be dealing with this company anytime soon given the quality product and quality installation we just received today! 6 out of 5 stars for sure!! Joe and Gladys

Mike and his crew did a great job replacing several older single pane windows with new vinyl windows. They were efficient, professional, friendly and went above and beyond to get the job done right. Highly recommend.

My wife and I have been looking for the right company to install new windows and we came across Long Life Windows and Doors. Our windows are originals from the 80’s and during the initial visit to our place, Justin gave us options and recommendations and most importantly, confident. Long story short me and my wife have decided to go with Long Life and we have made the right decision! They are simply the BEST! A BIG THANK YOU to Stuart and his team for the excellent work and professionalism! They are patient, friendly and extremely professional! My wife, my 2 kids and are I are super happy every time when we look at our new windows and they are so beautiful! Thanks Long Life and would recommend Long LIfe to anyone!

We recently had Long Life change all the windows and outside doors in our house and we are very happy. The experience was great right from the beginning when their estimator came into our home to take all the measurements. On install day, their team showed up on time and ready to go. The foreman had a deep understanding and knowledge about windows and installations and had the crew working quickly and efficiently for the few days while doing the install. They did everything correctly and cleaned up and took all their garbage on the way out, leaving us with the nice new windows and no mess. We got quotes from a few different companies before selecting Long Life - what did it for us is they are a local Vancouver family company and they have all their own staff for installs and no random contractors and we knew the quality was going to be high. 10/10 would recommend if you are looking for quality windows, doors and installation for your home. Would use again.

Payment Options

Long Life has the most flexible payment options in the industry. We offer complete financing at competitive rates with no penalties for early repayment. We also accept cheques, Visa™ , MasterCard™, and American Express™.

Replacement Window Installation

In Vancouver’s rainy, windy weather, your replacement windows should be airtight, difficult to break, insulate well, and keep wetness out. Old or poorly aligned windows can render a home loud, drafty, too cold, or too hot. When you’re selecting a window replacement, vinyl windows will help keep energy costs low, restrict sound transfer, and add value to your home.

Total Comfort Promise

Long Life offers a completely customizable product. We view your home as we would our own, and will work hard to replace your windows using only the most thoughtfully designed solutions that meet high standards of excellence. These solidly built windows and doors are smooth to operate, and like all of Long Life’s products, come with a lifetime warranty. Our warranty lasts for as long as you own your home, and if you decide to sell, the Long Life warranty is transferable to the new owner for 20 years.
