“We’re thrilled with our new windows—and we’re saving a fortune on energy bills. The wind used to whistle right through the old ones. The new windows have an awesome locking system that’s really easy to use, and they look beautiful. If that’s not enough, they were about a third of the price we were quoted elsewhere.”
“These windows make a huge difference. Recently it was raining real hard outside, and we didn’t even know! We were hesitant because we had wood windows, but the new windows look like they’re part of the original house. They’re really lovely.”
“We are fixing up our house and dealing with all kinds of companies. The Window Specialist’s service far surpassed everyone else’s. Ryan, who I dealt on the phone the most, could not have been nicer. The job we did with them was just perfect.”

Tired of high utility bills and ugly, drafty windows which fog up in winter and waste valuable energy in summer? Double-pane, vinyl or wood-framed windows are the answer, carefully matched to your home’s architectural style and installed by The Window Specialist.
Today’s vinyl and wood-framed windows have numerous advantages over aluminum-framed windows. They never rust or need painting – and they’re a breeze to clean.
While The Window Specialist has transformed hundreds of homes and apartment buildings all over the Bay Area, you won’t find them listed anywhere except in The Good Service Guide. They are a small company who will work on your job from start to finish – unlike some window companies who send a high-pressure salesman to close the deal, then subcontract your job out to the cheapest installers they can hire.
“We do all the installation ourselves,” explains manager Alan Zweig. “We also eliminate all the dry rot around the frames (a frequent source of allergy in older homes). Our aesthetic interpretation, structurl expertise, craftsmanship and finishwork are unmatched.
“In just one day, we can make a tremendous difference to people’s quality of life,” says owner Tom Fromm. “Suddenly you’re comfortable, warm, and free of traffic noise and sounds from the street. Your home instantly becomes cozy and peaceful – more of a retreat from the outside world.
“One owner recently told me that the new windows we installed were the best investment he had ever made in his home.”
The Window Specialist meets all PG&E’s requirements for energy efficiency, expertise and customer service.
