The 1st Choice Home Solutions Team

We know how stressful planning a renovation can be and how important it is to get it done right.


How can you be sure you’re getting a good product for a fair price or that it will be installed correctly? If you have a problem will they be there for you in the future? 

Coming from 3 generations of home contractors we’ve seen it all and helped 100’s of homeowners in London & area. Each and every product in our line up is carefully vetted for quality, durability, warranty and the manufacturer’s customer service. 

It isn’t enough to just replace your windows or your roof, we want you to get high quality materials, feel communicated with and comfortable throughout your project. 


We visit you for accurate in-person measurements and take the time to chat with you about your needs as well as bringing samples and photos. Behind your renovation, a whole office team works together to make your renovation happen smoothly from financial details to production keeping you informed and your materials tracked. Our final inspections top it all off to double check workmanship and address any concerns you may have. 

Decades down the line, you can still be confident our products will be working hard for you. A renovation with the 1st Choice Home Solutions team will leave you feeling secure and confident in your home.
