Project Details

Our customers were experiencing increased condensation around their windows and draftiness in their home.

We replaced all the windows with a variety from the Marvin Windows Essential Collection, including Casement windows on the back on the house, and the Essential Round Top on the front.

Additionally we put in two Essential Picture windows - one in the kitchen and one in the dining room which included custom wood trim on the inside.

Before Pictures


When we first made the call to Jimmy at Sideco, he came out to our house and took pictures. These very detailed satellite-type images helped us understand the measurements of exactly what we had and what we would need. We then went to their showroom and it was well worth the trip. It was good to see the different options in person and their professionalism and knowledge of construction was very evident.

We were very pleased with the Marvin brand, but mostly with the way Sideco puts the whole window together, from the moisture backing, to the insulation, to the trim. No matter which option we wanted, we were convinced that the quality would be consistent.

When they came to install, they were equally impressive. The project manager, Brent, was a pleasure to work with, and the crew was conscientious and courteous. They showed up when they said they would, and they kept the house clean during installation. Before they installed each window, they would tent off the area to keep the dust contained. Then they would remove the windows from the outside. If they made a mess, we didn’t see it, because they cleaned up as they went through the process.

Based on their recommendation, we decided to go with picture windows in the kitchen and dining room. Once everything was installed we were elated with the choice. They completely rebuilt the wood trim on the inside of the windows and the craftsmanship is excellent. It totally changed the look of our home, and the windows “bring the outside in” beautifully! We would highly recommend Sideco and we will definitely use them again.
