If eyes are the windows to the soul, then windows are the soul of the home… Okay, maybe that doesn’t quite make sense, but you know what we mean. Windows are what allows natural light into your home, what keeps the heat in during the winter and out during the summer, and what gives your neighbors a tiny peek into your everyday life. That’s why it’s important to stay up-to-date on the quality and maintenance of your windows. So, let these five businesses be your guide when it comes to the wacky, wonderful world of windows!
Windows Pittsburgh, formerly Century Custom Windows, began in 2004 with the goal of providing customers in Western PA and Eastern Ohio the best possible window installation and maintenance.

A reviewer with the username Our House said, “Windows Pittsburgh installed 9 windows at our house. It was a smooth experience from start to finish. Jim did not pressure us at all, and the price was very reasonable compared to other companies. The installation crew did a fantastic job and left the house cleaner than it was before they started. The windows look beautiful and we've gotten many compliments! We have recommended Windows Pittsburgh to several friends and family members already. We will definitely use them again when we have to finish replacing the rest of our windows!”

All of my questions were answered very quickly and I got exactly what I wanted for a reasonable price. Our windows were just installed today. About 6 hours for 14 windows. The team did a great job installing them quickly and cleaned up after the job. Highly recommend!”

Zach Richert loved how his door and window projects with Specialty Window and Door turned out, saying, “After receiving incredibly stellar service on a new door with Specialty Window and Door, I knew exactly who to call to replace some windows on my first floor. Rick came to the house himself and gave us a quote that was not only fair but better than anything else we could find for the quality we were looking for. From the beginning to the end of the job, Rick and his team were absolute professionals and I wouldn't look to anyone else for the next project. I highly recommend Specialty Window and Door!”

Shannon Mastriano was thrilled with her new windows. She wrote, “I couldn’t be happier with the experience, quality, price, and result! We needed a new sliding patio door and front window since they were original with the house (1960s). Tom was great to work with! Him and Scott did an awesome job with installation, cleaned up after themselves, and did it quicker than I expected. Had to wait a little bit for installation because they were so busy but definitely worth the wait!”

Google Reviewer Shannon Black loved her window experience with Honest Renovators so much that she took the time to leave a five star review! She said, “I own a two story home and was in search of a company who could replace my windows, because they were beginning to rot! I stumbled upon Honest Renovators. From start to finish I was thoroughly impressed. Shortly after I spoke with a representative, they came out to my home and explained to me my window options, while keeping my budget in mind… The crew that came out was respectful of my property and cleaned up everything before they left. Great company. Great product.”
