We hired Promar Exteriors to install new wood windows in our house. They guys that came was prompt, courteous, and got the job done fast. The cost was competitive too. We’d definitely use them again for any future window installation we may need.
Promar Exteriors does wonderful work and has great customer service. They worked on a cement siding project for us, and it went so well that we had them installed new Marvin wood windows. They were great to work with. Kept us informed about what was going on, providing photos as the work went along, and helping us to troubleshoot some other problem areas that we had.
Did exactly what they said they would do, when they said they would be here for the price quoted. 15 new wood windows installed and we are very pleased with their service. I recommend Promar Exteriors highly.
