Locating a contractor to do home improvement work is no fun. I needed my windows and patio door replaced, and received quotes from three local glass contractors. I was unimpressed by the first two. The third was the Save Energy Company in Petaluma. I chose the Save Energy Company because I received unbelievable Customer Service, Quality Products, the Lowest Price, and a Great Guarantee. This company is family owned and has been in business for over 27 years. The owner, John Gorman, actually comes to your home and talks with you about your needs- with no hassle or pressure. The sales staff and installers are excellent. A real plus is that the Save Energy Company is Diamond Certified and continues to meet rating requirements for quality. I had my windows and patio door replaced in September 2010, and I'm glad that I decided on the Save Energy Company.
Their number is 1-877-557-4850.

I am very happy with everything from sales to final product! Your company did exactly what they promised and what I expected. The sales and ordering process with Steve Lightman was extremely professional and getting the bid on the spot was great. I also was very impressed with the guys that installed the windows. Very professional work! I have had a really bummer week with a series of setbacks and problems on a remodel of another apt. here and you guys have been a ray of sunshine in this week.

Peter H., Santa Rosa
I wanted to thank your installation crew, headed by Angel Espana, and consisting of Jason, Mario, and on one day, Gabriel and Miguel also. They were skillful and careful, no collateral damage occurred during the 2 days the windows were installed, and the job turned out beautifully. Clean, crisp and fine is how it looks, and since the grid pattern we stipulated was nicely build into the windows, they have a cohesive look that mimics the design of the house. We could not be more pleased and felt that these men should be complimented in writing. The elements needed for a successful installation of new windows depends on correct measurement, correct construction to spec.'s of the window(s) at the factory and careful, proper installation. It is only the installation, how it is done and by whom that the homeowner has the closest involvement with. That relationship, while the windows are installed, is very critical to the perception and actually of how well a job is done. The installers are not only craftsmen but good will ambassadors representing your company. We could not be more pleased with the great job Angel, Jason, Mario, and Gabriel and Miguel did, and had to tell you.
Thanks very much!
Phil G., Petaluma
To Save Energy Company -
I'm writing to tell you how splendid the job of installing new windows was done by the following people: Steve Lightman, who explained the products from which we chose, measured our windows, and was at our house while the installation took place; John Gorman, who offered help in prepping our house before the job was to take place, was on site while the job got done, and for being helpful all along the way. Angel, Jason, Mario, Gabriel and Miguel did beautiful craftsmen like work removing old windows, installing the new ones, with no collateral damage to our house. Their skill, and sensitivity to our house and its' contents speaks well of their work habits and integrity. As you (John) well know, I was apprehensive about this job after there were some unexpected problems (which I know will be resolved) on the job you did for our friends and neighbors Trevor and Karla. My physical limitations frustrated me as well, as most of the preparation of the house in advance of the work fell to my wife Mili and our friend, Stewart. I was worried about many aspects of the job-incorrect measurements, an incorrectly built window from the factory, damage to a new window-etc., etc. -none of which came true. I am pleased to be able to tell friends and neighbors how beautiful the windows are, and how beautifully and carefully done the job was. This transforms our house. For the first time the windows are appropriate and archetectully correct for the design of the house and the quality upgrades the hose dramatically. It's a house we’ve continually put our 'all' into, yet this is the single most significant enhancement, from an aesthetic point of view as well as from a functional one. Thank you for a fine product, its' excellent quality and your very fair price.
Mili V., Petaluma
How pleasant it is to be writing a letter of commendation! You gave us the fairest bid for replacement of 13 windows and 2 sliding glass doors though the PG&E Home Energy Savings Program. From the beginning, it was a pleasure to do business with you. You arrived on time to give us an estimate and communicated in a timely fashion both in providing us pricing and references. I left messages for several contractors who never called back and another who came to our home but never sent an estimate or called again. Unbelievable, isn’t it? Your references were all exceptional. They praised your sincerity and the professionalism of the work crew. If there was a problem, it was handled immediately. Installation day arrived. Eight men started working at 8:45 am and left at 2pm. The job was finished. Everyone had a job to do, we were told who was in charge, and we completed our walk-through and final inspection by 2pm. The crew covered all of our furniture with plastic, washed the windows when finished, and did a general clean-up. Your crew found dry rot when installing one of the doors. They secured the door and then returned two weeks later to permanently set the door after we had the problem fixed. All of the windows fit perfectly. Two small screens had tears, which they fixed and returned. Ours was a very large job, and we never imagined I would be completed in five hours! John, please feel free to use us as a reference. This is the first time we have had a hassle-free experience with a large project.
Bruce & Joanne B., Greenbrae
Thank you for being so faithful to your agreement with us. I know how difficult it must have been and I appreciate it more than I can say. You are that most rare of people: An honorable man.
Greg L. & Kathy D., San Francisco
I am pleased to let you know how happy we are that we chose Save Energy to install our replacement windows and patio doors. Your installers did an excellent job and the final results are beautiful. I am particularly pleased at how meticulous your crew was with the details of the install work, and with their cleanup. We are also pleased with the look and feel of the Milgard fiberglass windows. It is a pleasure to have windows and patio doors that open and close with ease, and the look is a significant upgrade from our old aluminum frame windows. We needed double paned last summer- we’re looking forward with confidence to feeling the difference in winter. Another plus we were not expecting is how quiet the house is now- this is a real added bonus. We would recommend your firm to others without qualification. It has been a pleasure dealing with Save Energy throughout the entire process from initial quote to final cleanup. Thank you again, and please don’t hesitate to use our names as a reference in the future.
Sean & Diana M., Alameda
When the crew arrived to start the job, it was immediately clear that each was a skilled professional. The level of excellence displayed by each was amazing!
Erin & Dean A., Petaluma
Wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the replacement windows you installed in my home. Your staff, office workers, salesman, and installers were most professional, neat and pleasant.
