We had hurricane windows installed by Mr. Build and couldn't be happier with the results! …. The windows themselves are VERY SOLID! We won't be worrying about hurricane winds anymore! Our new windows are very attractive and make such a difference in the appearance of the house—we just love them! We live on a busy street so are especially pleased with the way they cut down on the street noise. I'm sure we'll be saving on our a/c bill as well, since the windows are very tight. The job was completed in two days, and Chris and Will left everything spotless! I can't say enough good things about Mr. Build--I recommend this company enthusiastically and without reservation! Great job, Mr. Build!!!

If you are thinking about new windows this is the company to go with. Any problems that arose were addressed and handled to customer satisfaction. Quality. Reliability. Affordable. Customer Satisfaction. Thank you Mr. Build

I replaced single pane slider windows that rattled and leaked air. Mr, Build had previously replaced windows in the community. The window openings were measured and Hurricane windows installed. The windows were brown on the exterior as specified by the association. They were installed by a 2 man crew who were very clean. The finished job was seamless. I was very pleased with the quality of the windows and the fit and finish. They even sent a window washer out to clean the windows.

Mr Build installed 10 windows at my home They did an excellent job The installers were on time and very professional I had only one week for the installation Mr Build scheduled the installation, county inspection and the included window cleaning and all was done in 5 days I highly recommend Mr Build for all window replacement projects Bill and Pam

Mr Build did a lanai enclosure for us with custom floor to ceiling sliding doors and sliding screened windows on the side. It is too good to be true. Joe, the owner, was so great to work with. He put huge effort into being sure the measurements were perfect and worked closely with our pool company to coordinate the two different projects. The installer was not just a nice fellow but clearly knew his business after many years of installing doors and windows. As with most construction projects things happen that effect the timing but Joe made every effort to keep me informed. At the end our new enclosed lanai is effectively a whole new room on our home and will be used year round. I would give Mr Build and Joe a 5 out of 5 rating.

Overall experience was Very Good. We had all the windows replaced as well as shutters installed on the lanai - installers were very conscientious and took great care in making sure that the impact to the interior of the house was minimal. There were manufacturing defects on two of the windows that didn't get noticed until after they were installed - they were replaced later without question. Would've given 5 stars but had communication issues concerning the start date of the project and a couple of the window features were missed. Other than that would recommend this company for your hurricane protection needs.

Everything was done as promised. Delivered and installed on time ,great follow thru and very competitively priced.

I was satisfied with this project until I received a call from Mr Build informing me we needed to schedule a final inspection. It s been weeks since this project was completed. To make matters worse I was told the window for inspection was 8:00-4:00pm which means you have to stay at home all day waiting on someone to show up.

Mr. Build replaced our old windows in our 1909 home. He replaced them with high impact windows since we are in an area they are required. We were very pleased with the quote we were given. Everyone in the company that we interacted with was very professional. The installers were friendly, knowledgeable and punctual. We were kept informed of everything that was happening. We liked them so much, they are now replacing our siding.

Kelly Hudson in Palmetto

Mr Build wanted us to be satisfied and was constantly asking if we were. I had contacted 2 other companies and they came out to look at the job in a timely manner but never got back to me with a quote even after I called them again..Mr Build came out when they said he would, looked at what we wanted, measured and gave me a quote right then. I usually am not satisfied with work I hire but I am with Mr Build.

Eugene Cozzi

Just had my doors installed today and the installer was great. He was neat and clean and did an excellent job and the customer service department is also very efficient. I would recommend Mr. Build to anyone here in Sarasota where you can be easily promised the world but they don’t deliver. My. Build does all that and more. The doors are very good quality. Of course I’m happy with everything.

Carol Roth

From beginning to end a great experience. Price was more then competitive, installed when promised, and always responded to phone calls.

Marc Schein in Sarasota

Mr. Build did a great job installing 14 new impact windows and Hardie siding on our home. It was a true pleasure working with everyone, from Joe, the owner, to the office staff, to the installers. Everyone is very professional. I would highly recommend Mr. Build.

Linda Nuce in Palmetto

We had absolutely no problems with this job from the best price out of all our bids, to the fast ordering of our windows, to the flawless installation and all along the way great communication. Would recommend for impact windows.

Greg Chan

Mr. Build did a great job on my hurricane shutter project. The job was done on time, the results are fantastic, and the shutters look great. In addition, the shutters are a great quality product that I am confident will do the job of protecting my home in the event of a major storm. The folks at Mr. Build were very responsive to my questions and concerns and they were always very professional and courteous. In addition, the office staff was also very professional, courteous and responsive. I would heartily recommend Mr. Build for any home project.

Mr. build just put new windows and the sliding glass door in my house in Englewood Florida. Spectacular job. The crew was excellent tarps were everywhere. They really knew what they were doing. I would recommend Mr. Build for everybody.

Randy Eamer in Englewood

Overall Job Well Done. Nice finish on inside and out, with sealing exterior to existing structure. Workers utilized floor covering and draped plastic sheets over furniture prior to starting. Minimal noise and delay before new window installed after old ones removed. Installers were polished pros in looks, behavior and communication. Adhered to start and stop schedule previously communicated. Only CONS, maybe some wall dings where paint touch-up needed. Workers cleaned-up with vacuum at end of each work day. Project: 7 impact windows, 2 days, 2 men, approximately 12 hours on-site.
