Testimonials - In THEIR Words


August 2012

Just installed windows and doors in my renovation in Charlotte, NC. Second house done with K/K* over a 20 year span (other was in Wilmette, IL). Just outstanding experience in every way. Great product!

On Memorial Day we experienced a storm with ping pong sized hail and seventy mile per hour straight line winds. Our three Kolbe windows on the western end of our house took the brunt of the storm with no leaks and no broken glass. Please thank the workers in your factory for turning out a quality product!

I have been involved in construction for over 30 years and appreciate good workmanship. The fellow sent to our residence [Wally Graf] to repair our patio doors and windows was courteous, neat, and efficient. He left me with a very good feeling about Kolbe & Kolbe and their concern for the quality of their products and their customers. Thank you ~ job well done

Just a quick follow-up to thank you for fixing our cabin window in Herbster, WI —it works perfectly. I am so glad that I bought Kolbe windows. The quality of your product is excellent and the quality of your people and organization are consistent with the high standards of your product. Truly unusual today. Thanks again and have a Merry Christmas.

October 2011

We recently replaced all of the windows in our 30 year old house.  When we entered into discussions with Ray Ginter,* it quickly became evident that he has had many years of experience in the industry and that he was knowledgeable about the Kolbe product line. He made many helpful suggestions and drew to our attention options which we had not even considered.

We had some difficulty visualizing some of the possibilities and asked if we could visit the Kolbe factory and showroom in Wisconsin. Ray was very helpful in making these arrangements and the way in which we were treated at the factory, by factory representatives, very much impressed us. Seeing the way in which the windows are constructed on the factory floor gave us confidence in their quality.

Our goals were to have a quality window that suited the character of our house, carefully installed.

In dealing with Ray and Kolbe we achieved these goals. Our experience was very positive and we are very pleased with our new windows.

Yours truly,
Susan and Harry Wiens

When builder John Nolte of MRAmerican Design Contractors was having difficulty with a window order, he was fortunate to be delivered into the right hands. Steph Schmidt at Kolbe vinyl in Manawa helped work out the details for John's new construction project. He's a satisfied customer of Kolbe products and service! Listen to the satisfaction... in his own words.

Last December, I purchased and had five Latitude Double Hung windows installed. What a BIG difference it made! I thought if just five windows made a difference, what a difference the other 12 would be. That said, expect Kolbe to see my order (through Barker Lumber in Delavan) for the remaining 12 windows. The quality is outstanding, as well as pricing. Your staff, from receiving, to production, to shipping and everyone in-between should be extremely proud of the products produced "Up North." I look forward (not really) to winter, to see the impact on our 90-year-old home, that a complete set of Kolbe windows will make.
