A fiberglass door won’t crack, swell, rot, dent, ding, or rust – so its virtually maintence free. Wood doors aren’t very energy efficient. They also tend to crack, swell, war and rot.

We looked at several different window companies in Petaluma and decided on Aames Windows & Doors. The choice was driven not only by the quality of the product but also by the competitive price and owner Brian, who was a joy to work with throughout the whole process. Brian's installation team were quick, tidy and whenever possible they were mindful to shift noisy work around my baby's nap schedule, which was much appreciated! We've had the windows just over two weeks and we're really happy with the look and are still amazed at how quiet the house is compared to before. Overall a great experience and a great product!
I was very pleased with my decision to have Brian's team install my windows. Ismael & Jose were very pleasant and installed the windows and cleaned the areas each day. My house is old and due to settling they encountered an issue, resolved it and my windows and patio door look and work great. When I decide to change out the remaining windows I will call them again in a heartbeat !
Brian,along with his installation team, did a great job of replacing the windows in our fifty year old house. Much quieter and more comfortable all around. Brian was the only person who actively gave us design tips that made our house look great. No other window companies offered that kind of help. We also found his pricing to be very competitive with our other estimates. Great experience all the way around. Highest recommendation.
Brian, the owner, was very professional and had a very fair bid. He showed up on the job every day. We replaced all the windows in our house and his installers, Ismael and Jose did a fantastic job. They were very respectful and cleaned up every day. They did an amazing job installing the windows and we couldn't be happier. I highly recommend Aames Windows & Doors.
Brian was just a pleasure to work with! We requested an estimate to replace our front door and an extremely odd-shaped window. He arrived on time for our meeting (always a plus for me, I like to know that contractors consider my time is just as important as theirs), and even called before heading to our house to let us know he was on his way. He was able to tell us how to best handle the tricky window replacement and had the pamphlets for the window suppliers ready when we wanted to see examples of how everything would look. It really couldn't have been easier...and it was so nice to have someone willing to come to our house to give us the estimate when we had so many concerns about how things would work...it's that extra customer service approach that goes a long way and earns repeat business!
Brian and his very capable team - Israel and Ishmael were top notch installers all the way from demo to cleanup. They were skilled in the window installation and also handled the painting of outside trim, and the staining of the inside trim perfectly and neatly. I was pleased with the waterproofing and flashing. What more can you ask of a contractor - honest, clean, punctual, with an attention to detail and the ability to find a workaround if necessary. No supervision was required as they completed everything in a timely manner. We love our new windows!
From the initial estimate meeting with Brian to the final install Aames was a pleasure to work with. Brian was on time, honest and patient when quoting our job with multiple options. He took the time to explain all my options and what he recommended would be best for our home. He was able to work around our hectic schedule and was willing to reschedule installation when needed. His installation team was professional, quick and was willing to work around us having a newborn at home . Our windows look beautiful and will no doubt make our home more efficient. I highly recommend Brian and Aames Windows.
Brian and his team are fantastic and knowledgeable . Brian took his time to explain the quality of window for my home always answering any/all questions I had . He personally oversaw the work on my home and even came back himself to check up on things after the initial installation . I highly recommend Brian and his company for an outstanding job.
Wonderful company!!! Brian, the owner is fair, honest, punctual, and very reliable . His crew can do anything and do it well. I have had all my windows replaced ,including my bay window, by Aames. This is the only company I would trust or recommend.

We just got our window job done. We thought we would replace only a large window and the patio door but ended up doing the whole house! Brian gave us a great quote on a good quality product.
Very happy with the installation! It looks wonderful. Brian and his team of guys are very professional and great to work with. We had some issues getting the large window as it's an irregular size. Brian worked with us to get exactly what we were looking for. Highly recommend going with Aames!!
I had Aames Window and Brian install windows for me house in Cupertino,CA. Brian came out himself promptly for an estimate and got the numbers back to me on the spot! I interviewed a few companies and Aames was by far the most prompt and efficient! One thing to note is the window products they use is very high quality, even the base models had installed were much better than most windows in this range, The job was completed today and everything looks great! So for now I highly recommend Aames Windows! Obviously I have not had any Warranty issues since these are new but if I every require it in the future, I will update my review!
First off I want to alert people to check Brian's filtered reviews. For whatever reason yelp filters all the good ones and posts the negative reviews first. We called on Aames windows and doors to have only one window changed above the front door. Brian and his crew showed up promptly and started working to get a very old stuck window out. Brian made sure to cover my furniture and floors to protect them from any glass pieces. They were so careful and courteous of my home. They put the new window in and it looks AMAZING! We are very pleased with Brian's hard work. He even swept up my floors and vacuumed! That's what I call good service. If we ever need another window put in we will for sure call Aames windows. Thanks Brian!
If you're looking for someone who will flake and reschedule all the time, Brian's your guy! He was very unprofessional, the way he handled his business. He may come off friendly at first and establishes a good rapport with his clients, but he gets a little too comfortable thinking you guys are "friends" and he can just cancel on the same day because he has another job that needs to be finished elsewhere- as if your home project isn't as important. Though the job eventually gets finished, it's because he realizes he won't get the rest of his payment until he completes his work.
I would NOT recommend him or his company.
Aames is fantastic. Last year I had Brian replace six windows that were slanted and looked very hard to deal with, especially after years of subtle earthquake damage. Another contractor had given me an annoying pricey explanation so I was happy to hear that Aames would do the job without a headache. They were pretty timely in their arrival to install and relatively fast. I am very happy with the results and the price was reasonable. Will work with Aames again in the future.
Aames installed my windows several years ago and were great. The installers were professional and were in and out within one day. The windows have been terrific--Anlin, vinyl windows. Just recently, I had a pest inspection on my house that revealed that water was intruding from somewhere and one of the several thoughts was that it could be coming from the window. I called Brian at Aames at 3:45 on a Friday afternoon and explained my situation. He was on my doorstep by 4:30 to inspect the window and manner of installation! He confirmed what I suspected, that the water was coming from another source nearby and not leaking through the window. But, I was extremely appreciative of the excellent service several years AFTER the windows were installed. We are selling our house and will most likely need his services again once we find our replacement home--we will definitely be calling them!
We ordered a window for a bathroom remodel, and didn't get a call when the window was in, didn't show up to install the window when scheduled, and came late for the re-schedule. The window was installed crooked, so one side is closer to the framing then the other. The stucco will need to be sloped inward to hide that. They patched the hole from the old window with the scratch coat of stucco, which even having had the dimensions and photos, showed up and charged more because they "didn't know it was that much," and they left a mess of stucco and garbage when they were done. We're not impressed.
