About Our Window Replacements


Our Customers Deserve The Best

We’re the proven best in the Jacksonville Area. But we don’t expect you to take our word for it – check out what countless satisfied customers say about Preferred Upgrades!

“It has been a year since we had our windows installed. I have been through all processes- bidding, installation, and follow-up servicing for defects. Ray E. is honest and professional. Our original estimate was about half of a competitor. He took the time to configure options to help us get the best value. The installers were considered to be ‘ the best’ in my opinion. Later, we noticed scratches that were a manufacturing defect. Ray promptly replaced them. We have recommended them to friends who are totally happy. We will be using Preferred Upgrades in the future.”
Heather D.

“We are very happy with our windows from Universal Direct. Ray is fabulous to work with, the prices are good (providing windows a step up in quality, and they still came in lower than the three other quotes we received), and the installations were smooth! They have now done full window replacements for two rental properties for me, and both were older homes with some challenging window situations! Ray was able to make suggestions that were aesthetically, functionally, and fiscally pleasing. We plan to use Ray and his team again in the new year as we start on additional home renovations and window replacements!”
Christyann A.

“Preferred Upgrades is a top-notch team from quote to installation. Very competitive pricing, quality products, and a very hard-working and professional installation team. Ray Ewing is a pleasure to deal with and kept me continuously updated on my order through the supply challenges of COVID-19. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for replacement doors or Windows.”
