“They were wonderful. This was the second time I employed them for windows. I was impressed with their knowledge, customer service, and workmanship. I wouldn't use anyone else.”

“The door replacements were done so perfectly, and the wood-work looks great. The salesman was prompt and polite. The installation was very clean. I only wish I had done it years ago.”

“Start to finish we were impressed by the work from Next Door. The salesman was great. The installer Fred explained what he was doing along the way and cleaned up everything. It's obvious he loves what he does and the company he works for. The front door is beautiful and we couldn't be happier!”

“The whole process was very smooth. The sales team is incredible and our installers were very nice and very experienced. There were a couple small issues with paint and a sliding door seam. When we called/emailed service we weren't hearing back from them, so we called up our sales guy and he solved it that day. That would be the only reason I knocked the customer service. Everything else was great.”

Working with them has been such a great experience—A+.”

“The Marvin Infinity Windows installed are outstanding. Very happy with this product. We had several callbacks to Next Door & Window due to post facto installation issues (i.e. the frames around the windows leaked when direct rain hit them, the bay window installed did not have the correct window sill and needed to be re-cut and repositioned). Overall a positive experience.”


“We wanted to replace old hinged prior doors with sliders. The Next Door salesman identified our options and prices them out. He then was very responsive to our questions. When we signed up with them for the job, they did a great job communicating the status. Installation went great. Love our new doors!”

“Beautiful ProVia door. Installation good, but Ron Carson described it as flawless. You're welcome to come and see 'flawless'. Overall happy.”

“We had a specific need for interior folding doors. We visited several vendors who did not have our 'need' in their inventory. We stopped by Next Door and Window and our sales person worked with their supplier to design and build exactly what we wanted. The estimated lead-time was accurate, and the installer did a great job of installing our doors in our family room. We are very happy with our doors and we have had no need of any warranty work or call backs.”

“Excellent workmanship. Even the people working on improvement next door commented on the thoroughness of the job.”

“I highly recommend Next Door & Window. They carry many different types of doors and windows plus now they also do siding. We bought Marvin windows from them several years ago. They priced options for us from all the brands they carried and discussed the pros and cons of each. We did not want vinyl windows and looked at the name brands. They did not pressure us at all toward any one option. The installers did a great job. Now that we needed a new front door, we called Next again. Again, our sales person, Amer, listened to what we were looking for and then went over all the options. Amer followed up afterward and arranged to get us some replacement handles on our 8-year-old windows. We will be looking at siding next year and will be sure to call Next Door & Window again.”

“They replaced a sliding door and a three-gang casement window. The experience was positive. Scheduling was quick and to the point, the product was delivered and installed on time and with quality, and the one rework item was completed quickly.”

“They installed the entry and storm door. It involved painting the storm door off-site and building out the frame of nonstandard depth on-site. The salesperson was very friendly. The installer was friendly, efficient, and skilled, and he cleaned up after himself.”

“They replaced dining room and bathroom windows and trim. They replaced the patio door and trim. They are very considerate about containing the mess that occurs when replacing windows. They also take pride in the job they do for their customers.”

“They replaced all the windows in our house. It was done over the course of several years. They are professional and responsible.”

“They replaced all the windows in our house. They took care of everything, they were really knowledgeable, and they did a really good job.”

“They removed and installed 12 new windows. They were efficient, worked quickly, and left a clean environment.”

“They replaced two kitchen windows with new double-hung windows. They arrived on time, were very efficient in their work, completed the job as prescribed, and cleaned up all the debris and hauled it away. They then showed me how to operated my new tilt-in windows and asked if I had any questions or concerns. I paid the bill, thanked them, and that was that. They have installed six other windows for me at different times, and each service has been identical. They are an excellent company.”

“I had new, custom windows installed. The replacement windows were from Marvin and were put in place where sliding doors were used as windows. They removed the old, rotted sliding doors and replaced any rotten wood they found with new boards and sheathing. They reinstalled siding and trimmed out the exterior window trim with composite trim and custom wood trim on the interior. The interior trim was primed and paint ready. The installation crew that was sent was very professional, and they listened to my instructions and requests and understood what I was trying to accomplish with the windows and trim. It took two and a half days in early November with the weather being sunny but cold, and the crew worked expediently and were mindful that the house was open and exposed, and they tried to complete the work quickly but efficiently.”

“We had screen doors installed on an eight-unit town house building. From sales to installation, the experience was comfortable and easy.”

“All the windows in our home were replaced. The positive was workmanship and willingness to do the right thing when an error was made.”

“They replaced eight multipane windows and a sliding patio door. The experience was positive from the initial meeting with their salesman all the way down to the final installation. All parties acted in a professional manner, and the workmanship was top level. The jobsite was cleaned up, and everything was like they were never here. The few issues we had were taken care of right away. The products they offer are top of the line also.”

“They did a new front entry and storm door. The gentleman who installed the door for us was very thorough and did an excellent job, plus he explained all the details of the lock system. It was an extremely cold day when the door was installed, and he did not rush any part of the installation.”

“We replaced an entry door with side light and seven windows. From the salesman to the office staff, the man who came out for the technical measurements and the installers, everyone was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. The materials were top quality. The skill of the installation could not have been more perfect.”

“They installed five new windows and a storm door. They showed up when promised for the quote. They showed up when they promised and did high-quality work with professional and courteous installers. They cleaned up well after they were done.”

“They installed a front door, a screen door, and a back door. The installers were very professional. They explained what they were doing and kept the work area very clean.”

“The door and passageway was replaced by Next Door & Window. They modified the door to allow me to remotely arm the door, and they did it for free. They were compassionate and went out of their way to make it a smooth installation. They are very, very nice people who know their business.”

“They replaced several windows that were rotting away. The work was thoroughly completed even earlier than expected.”

“From sale through installation, all work was completed on time in a neat and orderly fashion. The installers worked in a professional manner. Upon completion, the installer took us around to make sure every window operated perfectly and answered all questions. From the product, the sales presentation, to the point of sale, it was a pleasant experience.”

“Next Door installed a sliding patio door and two windows at our home. Next Door & Window was on time and professional, and they cleaned up after themselves. The windows and the sliding door all work perfectly.”

“They installed replacement windows in our home. Next Door inspected all of our windows and advised us only to replace the ones that needed to be replaced. They could have recommended that we replace all of the windows.”

“They did whole-house window and inside window trim replacement. It was done in a professional and timely manner.”

“They replaced a huge double window with a half-circle window above in the front of my house. They were efficient and polite, and the quality of the materials and work is excellent. The sales people are very knowledgeable and helpful.”

“First, they replaced windows on the south and west side of the house. Later, they put in new doors and windows, including new walls, on the breezeway. Next put in windows on a sunroom addition. It was all very nice and timely. The salesman really knew his business and helped me make appropriate decisions. They sent the same team to install each time and were very tidy and professional.”

“They replaced the front door, removed and reattached the screen door for access, built out the door jamb, and replaced the floor plate. Timely, quick, and clean service resulted in an attractive front door that is much more energy efficient.”

“We had four kitchen windows and one family room window replaced. The kitchen we transformed into one bigger window in the middle, and then either side opens up. This is a bay layout. We have then since completely remodeled the kitchen. A wall came out and has opened up the kitchen and dining area. We had a designer who fell in love with our windows. Our family room window was installed by my husband 30 years ago, and although it still worked, it had tremendous draft problems. Not anymore. The installers were polite and worked like a team. They were considerate of our living space while they performed their work in January. It was all done in one day. The windows are beautiful, and we are quite happy.”

“They put in two storm doors. The salesman explained the choices we could have, plus he went through the installation process clearly. When we couldn't get the doors we originally wanted, he came back and started explaining everything over again.”

“They replaced two windows with a patio door. The gentleman that did the installation was professional. The work was very good, and he also cleaned up when he was done. The salesman at the store did not push us to buy.”

“Next installed all new doors and windows, including the garage door. We chose Next because of the salesman, Mr. Roberto Guzman. He was easy to talk to, listened carefully, and was so professional. The work was carried out very well. All the guys were careful in their work, friendly, and respectful.”

“Water was getting inside the window when it rained. Sam, the technician, unclogged the weep hole on the window and removed the covering on the weep hole. I also pointed out the crumbling caulk on the backsplash next to the kitchen door that they had replaced. Sam used a product that would harden and stop crumbling. My experience was positive. Sam came out the day after I called; he was polite and knowledgeable, and he went out of his way to repair the damaged backsplash.”

“They removed an existing front door with side lights and transom and replaced it with new. They showed up on time, did quality work, and cleaned up.”

“This is our third contract with Next Door & Window. We began using them in 2011 with the replacement of our picture window in our living room. When it came time to begin replacing more windows in our home, we didn't give it a second thought and went right to Next Door & Window. They do exemplary work, and when I had my blinds lady come in to measure for new blinds, she remarked what a super job they did. The windows were all square, which apparently is not the norm on most houses. Next Door has always been prompt in responding to our needs. They call prior to setup and installation, and their salesman, Robert Guzman, whom we've worked with twice now, did a great job. Follow-up calls are always made to ensure we are happy with our windows. Marvin Infinity is a high-quality window, and we are impressed with how well the window trim matches that molding in the rooms. Next Door custom matches and does all the finishing work. The windows are effortless and so easy to clean, plus they have the added bonus of energy conservation. Our installer was the same for all projects and was quick and efficient. In about six hours, our six windows were replaced. They clean up so well. Our entire home has been outfitted with Marvin windows by Next Door. Next Door has quality installers who really know their craft.”

“They replaced the patio door in the condo. The salesperson and installation staff were terrific. The product is well made and attractive.”

“They installed a replacement bay window in the living room. They were on time, friendly, clean, and thoughtful. The window was installed during a winter month in the Chicago area. They installed plastic walls to keep the frigid air movement to a minimum, and the old window was removed and the new one put in place in record time. They cleaned up the living room nicely and left everything as they found it.”

“They performed two services for us. First, they replaced our garage doors in December 2014, and then in the spring of 2015, they replaced our front door and designed a transom and glass. Our experience was very positive. The service was very professional, and the work was done in a timely manner. The workers that did the job attended to every detail.”

“Next Door & Window completely replaced 21 windows and 1 patio door in less than 3 work days. The salesman was helpful in making suggestions for window styles. The workers were prompt or a little early arriving to work each day. They were extremely efficient at doing their job. They covered furnishings indoors and cleaned up, inside and outside, each day. They were friendly but all business.”

“Next Door & Window has installed windows, our patio door, our front door, our back door, and our garage service door. All the work they've done for us over the past two years has been performed with the utmost professionalism. Next Door & Window's office staff and installers have always been friendly and professional.”

“Next Door & Window installed a new sliding glass patio door. The salesperson was knowledgeable about the products, and he made sure we were getting just what we wanted. The stain and finish were impeccable. I couldn't have been happier.”

“Next Door & Window has installed all of our windows in our home and replaced the back door. I have recommended Next to any person that states they are looking to have their windows or doors replaced. I will go nowhere else. Next is superb.”

“They replaced our old steel door with an Albany fiberglass door. Our sales rep was very patient and always available. Our installation was flawless. We got exactly what we wanted, and Next was awesome to work with. We will use them again.”

“They installed an entry door in my condo. They are a wonderful company with exceptional installers. They do a beautiful job.”

“Everything went according to schedule. They installed a new patio door, which had to be custom built for the space. Absolutely everything was right on their initial estimated schedule. The workmanship was great, and when they were gone, you wouldn't have known they'd been here, other than the brand-new door. We were interested in one particular brand of door, and we actually went to three or four local firms that sold and installed those doors. We were obviously more impressed with them than some of the others, so that's why we went with them. One of the big factors was that they employ their own installers and don't contract it out. I would give them an A—no question.”

“They did a very good job, and I was very happy with them. Every job they have done for me has been very good. They just installed windows and a door in my house. I chose them because they have been in the area for a long time. No one in the area is as successful or has been in business as long as they have. I would give them an A+ because they were very good to work with and just did great work.”

“The workers were great. They were polite, and they just really did a good job with everything. They did windows and a back door. I had to call them back, but it was just for something minor. I would recommend them, and I'd say they're A+.”

“I liked everything. We had three companies come to the house, and Next Door was one of them. I'd give them an A+.”

“They were good. They presented themselves well, and they were efficient. They were here, done, and gone. They did what they were supposed to do, so I'd give them an A+.”
