Customer Testimonials

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 the 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 universal Direct and Ray in the future.

I was a little nervous because they were significantly less expensive then the other quotes I received, however I could not be happier with the quality and function of our new windows. Installation team top notch; friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Ray goes above and beyond to make sure things are right.

We had all of our windows and an extremely large sliding glass door replaced in our townhome about a month ago. Ray and the entire crew did an excellent job replacing all of our windows with no issues whatsoever! They arrived to the project when they said they would, and they were finished when they said they would be done! Ray was an excellent communicator and anytime I had a question he was very quick to answer! I would highly recommend this company for window replacement!

— John M.

These guys came in and quickly measured, quoted and then kept me updated through the whole process. Great Work. I was even able to continue working in the house while they worked around me.
— Arthur and Claudia G.

Ray Ewing and his Crew of Professionals came in and replaced our nine windows in a day and 1/2. they were very professional and courteous, and even cleaned up after themselves. One installer accidently broke our inside window seal ledge and went to Home Depot purchased the material and replaced the ledge at no cost to us. These guys are great and really know what they are doing. I can’t say enough good things about Ray Ewing and his Crew. * * * * * 5 Stars all the way.
— Gregg M.

Worked with Ray to tear down our old screened porch and installed a new sunroom with 7 awesome sliding house windows. Ray, Mike and their team did an excellent job and we are so happy with the final result. Now spend most of my time here. Great value for the job.
— Vicki D.

From our initial conversation with Ray Ewing through the installation, the team was professional and answered every question. The project started when expected and finished on time. We can already see the difference in appearance and room temperature. We are looking forward to seeing the changes in our electric bill.
— Michele C.

It was a great experience working with Ray and his crew. Being an absentee owner, Ray kept me apprised of when the installation would be taking place and followed up after the work was completed. For the price and quality of work performed, I recommend Universal Windows as the source for anyone looking to having new windows installed.
— Dennis M.

Fast clean quality work. We had 7 windows intalled and done in less than 4 hours.
— James G.

Excellent process all the way through from ordering to install. I had a room that was very warm in the morning because of the rising sun in the AM. After installing new windows, the room is no longer warm in the AM!!!! Huge difference. Thank you Windows Direct!!!!
— Rory R.

From the original estimate, to the ordering, and actual installation, Ray and his team were professional, courteous, and did a fantastic job. The installation went smoothly, and the new windows look amazing. Ray was great to work with, and I would highly recommend Ray and his team to anyone who needs new windows.
— Jenny K.

Ray and his team were a pleasure to do business with from start to finish. The guy who installed the window did a fabulous job, his attention to detail impressed my hard-to-impress husband!
— Amy F.

I don’t typically take the time to write reviews, but this company is awesome! We desperately needed all new windows in our house and after much research, we went with Universal Direct. From start to finish, Ray Ewing and his team were great and we are so appreciative!
— Victoria P.

Customer service is outstanding and the quality of work was great.
— Robert X.

Universal is a top notch team from quote to install. Very competitive pricing, quality product and a very hard working and most professional installation team. Ray Ewing is a pleasure to deal with and kept me continuously updated on my order thru the supply challenges of COVID. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for replacement doors or Windows
— Roger M.

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.

So I have to make sure you guys know, I have had a great experience with Universal Windows. Ray has been our go to guy. Super sweet, patient and understanding and great to work with. Very thorough and fully knowledgeable about windows and represents the company well. AS WELL AS the guys who come and do the work. Mike and his crew did a great job. We were only able to get half our windows done but we WILL be excited to finish the rest over time.
Btw, my most favorite and anticipated thing that was installed that I am the most excited and happy about, is our french back doors. They are GrrrrrrrrEAT! LOVE the blinds within the windows.
I definitely recommend this company, Ray and Mike and his crew. Thank you for all yalls help!
— Annie B.

After searching for 2 years to find a window company that wasn’t trying to rob me, never return calls, disappearing, etc. I found Universal Windows. I’d had no less than 12 quotes and Universal was my last one before losing all hope that I’d have new windows one day. During the pandemic, Ray showed up, wearing his PPE, professional, and on time! Needless to say, he and his company far exceeded my expectations. Installation was done in the very timely manner. The men installing the windows worked throughout wind, rain, and completed the entire house within a few hours. Cleaned up after themselves and if I didn’t know better, would’ve never known they’d been here. I live on a major road and for the 1st time in 20 years, my house is QUIET! If I had any questions or concerns, Ray was right there every step of the way. I can’t thank you enough!!
— Keith

The entire process was smooth and painless. Ray Ewing was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. The install crew were very professional, respectful, and represented their company well. The end result, and price, exceeded our expectations. We will recommend working with Universal Windows Direct to everyone, and we look for future opportunities as well.
— Mike L.

Universal Windows are amazing! Ray was a great guy to work with. We had to wait due to covid delays but the windows came in a month ahead of what we were told. They promised less and gave more for sure.
— Penny C.

We picked Universal Windows Direct initially because they could install custom height doors of the right material and the price was very competitive. We will use them again and we have recommended them to our friends because of their incredible service. Ray kept us informed throughout the process. Both he and the installers were all very personable and professional. The installers did a great job of cleaning up too. Ray takes pride in his work and he stands behind his product.
— John L.

Hard to know where to begin..service from Ray Ewing was outstanding..he was knowledgeable and very personable..my windows look like a million bucks..the one room with the largest window was the one I was hoping to benefit from having a new window installed and it did..that cold feel disappeared completely..my installer Tom and his team of installers were respectful and focused on getting the windows installed correctly and perfect the first time..the windows make my house looker newer and more updated..without a doubt I can highly and honestly recommend Universal Windows Direct and Mr. Ewing..you will definitely not be disappointed in the service and the quality of windows you will receive!
— Paula I M.

Is my first time buying windows and I’m glad I came across Universal Windows headed by Ray Ewing in Jacksonville, Fl. It was a great experience from start to finish. The demonstration of the product was top notch. Ray is highly knowledgeable and passionate about his windows. The installation was flawless by a very experienced and polite crew. The overall customer experience has been great and detail oriented. One of the windows came with a small scratch on a pane that other companies may have dismissed, but Ray was quick in not having the scratch fixed but rather requesting for the entire insulated glass unit to be replaced. Ray was very accessible and accommodating. He even answered e-mails at 10:30 at night because I work the late shift. I will not hesitate in placing future orders.
— Harold I.

Ray was great from start to finish, he made it such a smooth and pleasurable experience. He was available for what ever questions we had and the price of what we had done was very good. We had a window replaced and a sliding glass door replaced with French doors. We could not be happier. The installation team were very professional. Ted and his team installed my window and French doors and made them look seamless, just like they had always been there. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The only problem is now I want to go back and replace the rest of my windows, when I do I will definitely use Universal Windows to do the job. My wife and I could not be happier. Thanks Ray and Ted.
— John R.

Our experience with Universal Windows was phenomenal. First, start to finish it was an extremely professional and an enjoyable experience. Second, because buying a new door as well as installation is for most of us a new, daunting and expensive experience it is super important to have someone knowledgeable as well as willing to accommodate budget and wishes. For me Universal Windows Direct accomplished all of that and some. Not only was Ray Ewing and his staff willing to really listen to what we really wanted and not sell us anything we didn’t want but his installers Will Hathaway and Tom Christopher even installed on the weekend to accommodate our busy schedules. How about that!!! Amazing! And the attention to detail was astounding. This experience not only helped us as homeowners to hold certain expectations for products and work done but it also means that we will be having Universal Windows Direct back again when we need new windows installed. I cannot say enough good things about Universal Windows Direct! Thank You.
