You can count on Lowe’s to take care of your project, from A to Z. To start, you will need to submit your information by filling out our online form.

Top questions from our customers

Installation-related questions
How do I know when it’s time to replace my exterior doors?
Here are some indicators that it is time to change a door:
- Drafts coming from it
- Damaged weatherstripping
- Condensation between or on the window panes
- Presence of mildew

Therefore, if you noticed some of these problems, it is possible that the time has come to change the door(s) in question.
When can you start … and finish?
For small projects, the work is usually done within a few days following the purchase. In the 24 hours following your purchase, our call centre will contact you. Following that, an installer will call to book an appointment with you.
For major projects such as kitchen and bathroom renovations, please allow additional time for essential steps including in-store consultations to create the plan, measuring process, and work order issuance.
Bear in mind that product availability, weather conditions, client availability, and work area conditions may have an impact on project timelines.
Here are a few examples of project timelines:
Kitchen installations: between 8 and 12 weeks once the order has been placed
Doors and windows: 3 to 6 weeks once the order has been placed
Roofing: 15 to 30 days once the order has been placed
Siding: 15 to 30 days once the order has been placed (subject to product availability)
Heat pump: 15 to 30 days once the order has been placed

How do you ensure that your customers are satisfied?
Throughout the project, we provide constant customer care. Upon project completion, both the installer and customer inspect the work that has been carried out to ensure that it meets the customer’s expectations. If all is approved, the customer signs a work acceptance form. Finally, we contact each customer after the installation is completed asking them to fill out a survey for feedback on the job’s execution.
Are you insured for damage and accidents?
Yes, all Lowe’s installers have liability insurance.
Whom should I call if I have a problem: Lowe’s or the installer?
Please contact Lowe’s call centre if your project was a fixed-cost installation: 1-844-454-1454. For a renovation project, please contact the Lowe’s store where the contract was signed.
Do I have to give a deposit?
Yes, a 50% deposit is required when you sign the installation services contract. The remaining 50% must be paid before the work begins. Alternatively, the full amount can be paid when signing the contract.

Maria and Tina (installation department) Lowe’s in Woodbridge were excellent in their follow up and keeping me advised as the project advanced. I realize Covid 19 did slow the process and I understand that.

They were busy, so the initial call was about a week past the time we were initially told to expect their call. The day of the appointment, they were on time. Fully professional. They answered all of our questions, on site. The product was actually early. Very happy with the end result.
