About Our Company
VINYL WINDOW DESIGNS LTD. can build the window of your dreams!

Company History
Vinyl Window Designs Ltd. began production in 1986 with five employees in a 5,000 sq. ft. facility. Philip Spatafora brought his expertise in industrial production and Lino D'uva took charge of sales and marketing.

The objective of Vinyl Window Designs was to offer the best quality product, excellent customer service and prompt delivery of its product at a competitive price. This was not an easy task to achieve. However, with determination, perseverance and hard work, VWD progressed rapidly, and the company earned the respect of the marketplace by taking advantage of new technologies and incorporating cutting edge design features.

Growth resulted in a number of moves to larger facilities, with an ever increasing number of employees. By 1993 the company had sold of 3.2 million windows, was employing 120 people, with annual sales for the group at thirty-five million dollars.

By this time, the different production lines could not fit under one roof and Aluminum Windows and the Vinyl extrusion division each required their own locations.

Our aluminum window facility, AWD offers state-of-the-art production of commercial curtainwall for high-rise projects as well as superior quality residential high and low-rise products. Our aluminum thermally broken products are designed for both new construction and renovation usage. All products are tested to meet your specific requirements.

In 1996, our group entered the new construction market. Our Performance Windows new construction line has been continually modified in response to changing customer needs. With our own sealed unit manufacturing, vinyl bending and vinyl painting factories, the group is a one-stop shop for all window options.

The Window Designs Group is listed in the top 100 companies in the North American industry. Its strength is in remodeling and new construction for Vinyl Window sales as well as commercial aluminum sales. We also have exports to Japan, Argentina, Columbia, Russia, Hungary, Germany, Poland, Portugal, the Caribbean and a growing market for our quality products in the USA.

2016 brought the largest jump in size yet. Our 200,000 sq. ft. facility can be seen on the east side of Highway 400 in Northwest Toronto. We even have our own moose sculpture! We've come quite a way from 5,000 sq. ft. in 1986.

Our VINYL WINDOW DESIGNS window products qualify for some of the most prestigious product certifications offered in North America. Our company is one of the few that has chosen to work closely with the Canadian Standards Association Certification Program in Canada and with both the National Fenestration Ratings Council and with ENERGYSTAR ® in the United States.

We were honoured as the Window and Door Canadian ENERGYSTAR&tm; Manufacturer of the Year 2006. Since then, due to our efforts to promote energy saving products to Canadians, we have received four more ENERGY STAR awards, including the coveted award for "Sustained Excellence" in 2014.

What is happening to government grants?

While the USA government is renewing its commitment to promoting energy conservation through its continuation of its 30/30 grant program, the Canadian government has announced the end of its EcoEnergy sponsorship. As of April 27, 2010 some of the provincial programs, such as Ontario's '$40 per opening' grant, are still in place, so it is important that you clarify with your VWD whether or not you qualify for any funding for your window project.
