Advanced Window Inc.

When I first moved in back in 2001 my townhouse was hot and noisy.  Living next to a busy street I was woken up by car noise in the morning and my binge movie watching was occasionally interrupted by sirens.  When I got home from work I was greeted by an inferno as my glass patio door was west facing.  After doing research I decided to replace the crappy single pane glass doors and windows with new energy efficient dual pane low E glass.  I got quotes from a few companies and settled on Advanced Window Contractors as the owner Carl gave me a real good price and he was a nice smart guy I thought I could work with.  Carl gave me some options and I settled on getting Milgard doors and windows as there was a lifetime warranty and they had laminated glass that was suppose to reduce noise above what regular dual pane windows would.

On my last visit I ordered the boneless pork chops with applesauce and french fries. By far my favorite dish alongside the fried chicken. Just love to combine a bit of applesauce with each bite of juicy, flavorful pork chop, delicious!

They made us many promises, more than I can remember, but they never kept but one; they promised to take our land, and they took it.
