We could not be happier with this crew and the incredible work they did to restore the original windows on our 1928 craftsman.
The windows are impeccable, Steve and his team really understood the aesthetic of our home; we decided to leave the interiors natural wood with a clear coat and the exterior painted dark red, both look great and the functionality of the windows is flawless. On top of the actual craftsmanship, this team was lovely to work with, we were living in the house for all the work (7 weeks) and have two toddlers, not an ideal situation, but I can honestly say we were sad (as were our boys) to see the guys go!

Absolute masters of the art of restoration. We are so lucky we found them and they were able to fit us in! It’s truly special when you can see someone’s passion radiate through that work, and the art they create truly speaks for itself.

You taught me in five days what would have taken five years on my own.
WOOD WINDOW WERKS
Such an amazing workshop, put on by an even more amazing group of folks. Thank you for the knowledge and the fun and helping us restore part of a well-loved building.
Thank you Steve Quillian. What impressed me about last year's #Historic Homes Workshop was how such a diverse group of people came together for a common cause. We put aside political, religious, idealogical differences to share our knowledge with one another, and help a young family realize their goal of living in a healthy and beautiful house that had housed families for nearly 100 years. The WPA has nearly 100 members and growing, bringing together a brotherhood of people committed to preserving our built heritage through their love of something as commonplace as windows.
When I was re-doing a house in Seminole Heights (in 2005), I discovered Steve's business.
Totally thrilled that a guy of his craftsmanship is available in Tampa to do important work like this.

I am so beyond pleased and inspired with dedication and hard work Steve and his team has put into restoring our 1925, double hung windows on our bungalow we just purchased in Bradenton. We were considering replacing our windows because we were told that would be the most energy efficient option. Not only did we learn that this was not true, but they have restored the pulley system on a total of 22 of our windows within just a few days while maintaining the integrity and quality of a antique wood window. Steve came back after the project was completed came over to teach a 1 on 1 workshop on how to re-glaze and restore paint on sashes. These guys are so talented and have a true dedication to preserving and restoring beautiful wood windows!
MATT Y. BRADENTON, FL
I never knew anything about old windows or old houses until we inherited two 1908 shotgun houses in Ybor City, Tampa. By coincidence I met the greatest window maker and restorer in the world! How lucky we are his shop is in Tampa, Florida. I never thought what it took to make a window was so fascinating. Steve is truly a special human being, not only his skills in window making are extraordinary, but as a person he is fair, honest, and we are totally happy and satisfy from beginning to the end. Thank you for your dedication in preserving our past.

This was a wonderful hands on class. I feel like I learned so much and look forward to tackling my daughter's windows! Steve is wonderful and makes the class so much fun! Can't wait for another class!

Wood Window Makeover is so much more than a business that restores windows. Steve and his team are craftspeople, in a time where craftspeople are dwindling. Their workmanship is phenomenal, and they are worth every penny that you’ll spend. Think you can “replace them for cheaper?” That may be. But...these restored windows carry on for another century, and will be ready to be serviced again, while you’d be 5 deep in replacement windows. These we’re built by people, to be maintained by people. And there’s no better value than something that lasts forever.
I attended a workshop here. It was awesome! Steve is a great guy. His staff are outstanding, and they all know their stuff. They make a great product, provide a great service, and truly care about the people and communities they are a part of and do business with. If you need wood windows repaired and/or restored, look no further. I'll be returning to the workshop next year.
These guys are passionate about what they do. They do it to a high level and are very eager to help. If your house still has its original wood windows, or you wish it did, Steve and his crew will be your new best friends.
