Order

Installation

Installation schedules are booked a week in advance. We will contact you once the product is shipped to our warehouse to schedule your installation.
Installations are scheduled Monday through Saturday. If your building department requires an in-progress inspections installation can only be scheduled Monday through Friday.
This will depend on various factors. The Production Manager will go over how long the install will take for your project at the time of scheduling your install. These factors include: The number of windows or doors being installed, any oversized windows or doors, the framing of your home and any extra work that may require. Some HOA’s may limit the time they allow our installers to work. We can assure you the installers will not rush through your project and will provide you with a premium quality installation.

Replacement glass arrives in cellophane and we keep each window and door in the manufactures packaging to reduce the possibility of damage after arrival. Therefore, when it is time to deliver and install your replacement windows and doors they are still neatly packaged from our manufacturer.
We will immediately place the order for the replacement product that is needed. Once we receive the replacement we will set up a date with you to service your project.

As well as the windows are not made to withstand the pressure of a hose or pressure washer. Water ratings for all windows and doors typically range between 0.05 psi and 0.09 psi. For comparison, a typical garden hose sprays at about 30-60 psi and a typical pressure washer sprays at 1200+ psi.
Unfortunately, manufacturers do not provide owner’s manuals for products. At time of install the crew leader will walk you through the process on how to operate the windows/doors properly.

Inspection

If your project does not require any services or stucco repair that would prohibit the job from passing the final inspection, our inspections department will be contacting you to schedule the final inspection. We will coordinate the building departments first available date along with your schedule to set the final inspection.

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.

Our family had a great experience with Paradise Windows! The sales rep, Tyler was so helpful and got us a great deal. I would recommend this company to anyone looking to add value and safety to your home. The installation was fast and efficient. I love our new windows and doors!! They will essentially pay for themselves with the quality and efficiency and energy conservation.

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!
