The team at Paradise kept in touch throughout the process - everything was perfect with the communication. Everything was taken care of during install. They picked up everything and the workers were cordial. I love the way they worked. The inspection went fine. It was definitely was a good choice to install the windows. The house stays cooler and my energy bill has gone down. I also don’t hear as much noise. I’ve sent my friends to Paradise a couple times already, and would recommend them again.

Extremely Knowledgeable sales rep as well as patient. Great product, can't wait for the windows to start saving on energy as well as making the house look great, updated and safe. Let me mention once again on the sales rep Santiago Munera, if not for his cool calm demeanor and running us through everything answering all our questions as well as our quirkiness. if not for him we would be with another contractor. We will definitely call for future projects.

I would give Paradise exteriors a 20 out of 10! The crew was amazing and I would love to speak to the owner about how top-notch the whole experience was for me. The installers were on time and courteous. They cleaned up their mess and clean my windows before they left. Afterwards, they did a thorough walk-through with me and showed me how to lock and operate everything properly. Overall everything was excellent! Wow!

This is the most professional company that I’ve ever dealt with. From our first conversation on the phone to the completion of the work. A-1 company. Totally pleased.

Truly an amazing company to do business with. They have made replacing our windows a breeze. Everyone we came in contact with, either by phone or in person, has been so pleasant. We will definitely recommend them to everyone we know.
