just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the new
roof your company installed. Your crew arrived on time, got
right to work and had the old roof off, new roof on and sealed
up in one day. They were clean, neat and handled themselves
in a professional manner. It went so fast that several people
stopped by to ask who was doing the job. Your crew returned
the next day for some minor trim work and final clean up.
They did a fantastic job on the clean up including raking
around the house and, due to the wind; they even went to the
neighbors to check for debris.
What has really been a surprise to me is the ridge vent that
they installed. On a sunny 70-degree day our room above the
garage would heat up to the point we would have to open the
window. Now even that room is the same temp as the rest of
the house. Our attic used to get so hot that you could smell
the hot wood smell and feel the heat radiate down from the
ceiling. Now we can walk in there on the sunniest of days
without gasping for air.
I waited to write this letter to test the job with rain and
hot sun and it has passed the test with flying colors. I would
recommend (and I have) your company to anyone looking to have
their roof replaced."
Thank you again
"We would like to thank you for a job well done. Our
new garden window is beautiful and we are very pleased with
it. We also want to say we were impressed with the professionalism
of the gentleman who installed it. Their concern and honesty
was appreciated regarding our garage door. Again we would
like to say thank you for a job well done."

"My husband and I wanted to close in our screen porch
and make it into more of a 3 or 4 season room. We called Improve
by Standard, because of the reputation that Standard Lumber
has in the local community. They were very prompt in contacting
us and setting an appointment around my schedule.
When Jeff, the sales representative for Improve arrived he
was very friendly. We have had other companies out for other
projects and it seemed like all they wanted to do was try
to bash their competition, but Jeff was not like that. He
said he was there to talk about Improve and what they had
to offer. He did however point out problems in their warranties
or in what they had in writing, but would not say anything
bad about any other company. He stated that it was up to me
to do my homework on the other companies.
Jeff was very informative and gave us several options on how
we could enclose our porch. He talked to us about the history
of Standard and how they believed in taking care of their
After showing the products and explaining how they would be
installed, he answered all of our questions.
When it came time to give us the price he gave us one price,
which he said was the best price he could give. What was nice
was that there was no “If you do it today the price
is...“ tactics. The price that Jeff gave up front was
very fair for the job and a warranty that was incredible.
There was no pressure from Jeff to do it that day. He understood
that we needed to think about this, but we knew right away
that Improve was whom we wanted to do business with. The next
day I called Jeff and asked him what we needed to do next.
He came to my office later that afternoon and I place the
A few days later Stephen came out to remeasure the windows
and go over what they would be doing and asked if I had any
other questions. I asked him where I could get a new piece
of glass for my storm door and Stephen told me not to worry
about it. That they would pick one up for me.
When the Stephen arrived a few weeks later to install the
windows he was again very friendly and got right to work.
I had to get to work so I was not able to be there during
the installation. When I got home from work they were just
finishing up. When I walked out to the porch WOW I could not
believe how different it looked. The room was absolutely beautiful.
I was totally amazed how nice the job was and how well they
cleaned up afterwards. Other than the fact that the room looked
totally different you could not tell they were even there.
Stephen then showed me how to operate the windows and how
easy they were to clean.
My husband and I absolutely love the room and would highly
recommend Improve for any home improvement project. Not only
for the quality of the work, but also for the way we were
treated during this project."
Dear Jeff, Lyle, Rick & Staff,
"We wanted to thank all of you for a wonderful job on our house. We are very pleased with our new vinyl siding. Standard Lumber is definitely a company with integrity. You arrived when you said you would, you finished the job when you said you would, and you did your follow-up visit on a timely manner. Just as you said you would, that is integrity in my book.
We will highly recommend your company to our friends an family. Thank you again for a great job!!"
"We were pleased by the service and product that Improve by Standard had to offer when we were ready to replace our bedroom windows. The first contact was made by a very informative sales person who made suggestions taking into consideration our home and budget. Once a brand and style were selected, their installer came to our home to re-measure and double check the window sizes before ordering.
After a few weeks our windows came into the Standard location. The installer contacted us to set up an installation time and date. Our six windows were installed, the mess cleaned up and the old windows removed within 5 hours! We were pleasantly surprised by the professionalism and expertise of the installer.
We would recommend Improve by Standard to anyone looking for good selection and service if considering new windows for your home."
We had Improve! by Standard replace the windows in our house last year. They did a fantastic job. The salesperson who came to our house was very polite and respectful of our time and budget. The delivery time was great, and when it came to installing the windows a couple weeks later the work was done surprisingly fast. The second day they came by to put on some finishing touches, clean the windows, show us all the features we might have missed otherwise, and remind us about the warranty.
I also really appreciated that they didn't wait for me to call with a problem, rather I recieved a phone call a week or so later checking up on how the windows were doing now that I'd had a chance to see them tested by the weather.
We've gone through all four seasons with them now and haven't had a single problem!
