San Francisco

Customer Feedback:

Wooden Window

“We own an old Oakland schoolhouse where most of the windows had been painted shut over the years. Not only did Wooden Window reverse the aging process and make them operate like new, but their workers were absolute gentlemen. They were very courteous and neat, and we felt confident about leaving them alone in our home.”

Customer Feedback:

TLC/Goldcrest Homes, Inc.

“I’ve used the Guide before, and think that Jim should definitely be listed. He remodeled my kitchen for me, and replaced a wall which had dry rot. He’s reasonably priced, and does high quality work. His workers are very pleasant.”
