“I had read some good online reviews for Cal Comfort Windows, so I went to the showroom to see what they had. I met Diane there and she showed me PlyGem windows. They looked very nice and the latches were solid. I had come prepared with a list of the windows in my house from ordering blinds a couple of years earlier. We went over the list, discussing which way the windows should open or if they were stationary (picture window) and she said she would get a budget to me asap. She called within an hour of when I left the showroom. Another local window shop took several days to get back to me.

Later I made an appointment with Andy (the owner) to come out to the house to look at our widows and take frame measurements. We went over which glass package to use on which windows. I decided to get decorative grids in the windows and also upgraded to the sound control package.

During the process I applied for the HERO program financing, but the interest rate was too high, especially with the added fees. I would also not have been able to get the sound control package with the HERO program because not all sizes of windows and pane thickness are tested for energy efficiency, to qualify for the HERO program. The sound insulating windows are about 0.1% less energy efficient, so I decided the sound control would be worth it. (A no brainer)

A few weeks later, it was time for the installation to start. Andy estimated it would take 4 or 5 days to install the windows. He was right on. The crew installed 24 windows in my two story house and most of the interior trim in 4 days. The 5th day they installed a patio sliding door to match and completed the trim. They had to cut some stucco out of the rough opening, but stapled plastic to the wall to keep the dust out of the house. The door fit perfect and looks great.

So to sum it up, I couldn’t be happier.”
