“I was very happy with their service, and I definitely recommend them. We recently had windows installed, and although it takes a year or two to see if the quality is still there, so far they are doing great! You can use me as a reference with no hesitation.”
“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.”
“They replaced windows that were about 40 years old with brand new beautiful double-paned windows. They were professional, prompt, courteous, and meticulous. Alan was really involved throughout the whole process, and the floors were cleaner when they left than when they got here!”

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.
