Michael Testa is the principal and founder of Retro Consulting Solutions. After studying business at York University, Michael began to pursue his passion for construction. His first experience in this field was working with a small independent residential home builder in Simcoe Ontario where he was exposed to all facets and challenges of home building from ground breaking to completion. After a two-year term building homes Michael was offered a position as a sub-contractor with an independent window and door contractor in Hamilton, Ontario. This is where the comprehensive window retro-fit program was developed. The challenge of addressing window issues in older apartment and condominiums with debilitated windows without incurring high replacement costs was brought to Michael and his contractor’s attention by one of the largest apartment owners in southern Ontario. After several months of working with window suppliers, product testing and field testing with the apartment owner, the revolutionary program was developed. The program’s development two years ago, has successfully transformed hundreds of apartment windows in Ontario and achieved great acceptance and satisfaction by landlords. Michael is extremely excited with the progress that has been made so far and is looking forward to growing the business and expanding it nationally over the coming years.
