Ron Freer – President and Founder/ Sunroom Consultant
Ron has been involved in the windows and doors industry for over 40 years. Growing up in Toronto Ron started a business with his brother’s installing windows and over the years expanded the business and moved to the office side of things where he consulted with customers on windows and doors to help meet all of their needs. Shortly after Ron began his journey into the sunroom industry, with over 35 years experience in the market, and building more sunrooms in the Peterborough area than anyone else, he has seen it all.
Ron had always loved Peterborough and surrounding area because of his many years spent here at his cottage in Ennismore as a boy. He always liked the way things were done in this area, but most of all he loved the people he met. Once Ron and his wife were expecting their first son they decided it was time to move up to Peterborough and give him the lifestyle Ron loved so much as something he would experience on a daily basis.
Since moving here Ron has been strongly involved with the community. From sponsoring hockey teams to donating to local causes Ron has always been a big advocate for giving back to where you live.
Since being in Peterborough Ron has specialized in sunroom consulting and left the windows and doors to his right hand man Chris Jay. If you’re thinking about a new sunroom or just want to see the options and benefits some of these beautiful products have come and visit him in the showroom.
