our customers say

We had to replace all of the windows in our townhouse, 22 windows in total. I had contacted another company, but didn't have a very good feeling about them. I turned to 'Yelp' for assistance and was directed to 'Supreme Windows and Exteriors'. What a blessing! From the moment I made the first phone call to Supreme, I was extremely impressed by their professionalism. The installation was done within a day and a half, which was quite a feat due to the extreme winds and cold weather. I felt at ease with every step of the process and would HIGHLY recommend this company to anyone who is in need of window replacement. I plan on using their services again for our other properties in the Chicagoland area. Thumbs up to Supreme! They truly deserve the recognition.
