Rocky and Brooks took care of me. I told Rocky up front that I hated just about every window man that came to my house due to the high sales pressure. Rocky told me “we don’t do that.” He wasn’t kidding. Brooks came out, measured, left, called back with a price. About three weeks later two very nice gentleman where in my house installing my windows. I only had three windows done. I was still treated like a priority. I’ll use them when we decide to replace more.
