Doing Things the Right Way Turns Out to be a Great
Way to Grow Your Business
David and Stephanie knew that a home improvement
company run with a customer-first attitude could
do well. They just didn't realize how well until they
launched.
When they started out, they only sold and installed
windows, but customers love businesses that show
them respect. As word got around people kept asking
about other products and services and within several
months they added doors, roofing and siding to meet
the demand.
Stephanie and David are more committed than ever to
maintaining Coastal Windows & Exteriors as a truly
exceptional company.
Specialties: Remodeling/DER, Roofing, Windows
