History

Durabuilt Windows & Doors’ story started with a family of entrepreneurs and their dedicated team.

Together, they turned a small window and door shop into one of the largest privately held manufacturing companies in western Canada. Hard work, dedication, and above all else a customer-focused attitude, has shaped Durabuilt into the company it is today.
