“The door looked so good that I now want new doors all-around! And they did such a nice job, at such a reasonable rate (less than HALF what a local company quoted me), that it’s conceivable that I will be employing them several more times for new door installation. Great people, highly recommended service.”

“Comparable to winning the remodeling jackpot, it was an AWESOME experience working with the dream team at Southern Pride Openings!!! From start to finish, the crew never ceased to amaze me with their strong work ethic, professionalism, friendly attitude, superior service, and installation knowledge/skills.

Kelli who coordinates scheduling is organized, super friendly, and an absolute pleasure to work with. Tom responded promptly to our initial consultation and was VERY patient and thorough throughout the entire process. They were accommodating to our schedule and Tom and Kelli are very responsive via email and phone. Tom and his crew, Chris and Justin, are EXTREMELY hardworking men – they even worked through weather in the low teens while maintaining a chipper attitude! Tom made good product recommendations for our windows and doors, as we were uncertain about which brands to use, and also provided creative solutions to resolve any issues (uneven flooring, casings/trimwork design, etc.) Icing on the cake is Tom’s great sense of humor and readiness to tackle any challenges.

Like many folks, we’ve encountered “the good, the bad, and the ugly” in remodeling. Southern Pride Openings is in its own category of “the supreme”! I wish they did ALL types of remodeling so I could go to them for any job!”

The presentation by Tom was superb, has visuals, demonstrations and “see to believe” proof of why these windows a the way to go.

His installers are knowledgeable and great problem solvers and are extremely well-versed in “clean as you go”. Really a wonderful experience and can already tell the difference the windows have made in the week they’ve been in. Their whole operation is professional and their pricing is hard to beat too.

Larry Herold responded promptly to my request for a quote and arranged an evening appointment at my convenience.

He thoroughly explained the features and benefits of the product (vinyl windows) and brought materials to demonstrate. I was impressed with the product and guarantees. Once I decided to go with Southern Pride Openings, the owner, Tom Herold, came out to measure – also in the evening. Tom was very pleasant and helpful. He even showed me how to make my two screen doors easier to open and close!

An installation was scheduled as soon as the windows arrived. Tom and Justin arrived promptly in the morning and completed the installation in one day, with the exception of one incorrectly manufactured window with an unusual arch that had to be sent back to the manufacturer and a new one built. This window was installed as soon as it arrived. Justin cleaned up inside and outside at the end of each installation and even cleaned the windows.

I am very pleased with the look of the windows, the ease of opening, and the ability to tilt the windows so I can clean from inside the house. The windows face south and west and the new windows do a great job of cutting the amount of heat entering the house.

I plan on replacing all my windows over the next year and I will definitely be using Southern Pride Openings.

From the first contact to the end we were very impressed with the professionalism of everyone from the company. The “sales” part of it was very comfortable to us and no pressure. We had all of our questions answered. The windows were installed today. Two men did it in less than 12 hours and completely cleaned up. They were very easy to have in our home. The windows look fantastic! We’re very happy!

This company is stellar! My husband and I talked with other window companies and chose Southern Pride Openings.

We are convinced we made the best choice after their incredibly professional, quality installation of our new windows. First of all, they came to our house and walked through everything we wanted to do and listened intently. They made professional suggestions that helped us to make decisions about one particular window.

They really helped weigh the cost and options on what to do with that window and as a result we have a beautiful new bay window that is ideal for the location. The could also get the replacement windows in record time because of their excellent relationship with the provider. Our house did not have wood molding around the windows and as they went around the house replacing windows, they also put molding around the windows. What an update! They were neat and clean and always professional.

I would highly recommend Southern Pride Openings and use them again in a heartbeat!

The job was great. We are very satisfied with every aspect of the removal and installation. The entire team at Southern Pride Openings was very thorough and professional. The new windows greatly enhanced the appearance of the house both inside and out.

The installers did a wonderful job. They did a great cleanup inside and as well. The people are easy to work with very knowledgeable and shoot straight with you. The windows are quality windows and reasonably priced.

You can’t go wrong with these people.

Replaced three entry doors with upgraded, high-quality steel doors.

Replaced three entry doors with upgraded, high-quality steel doors. Installation was done on schedule, they took their time to do the job properly and were courteous and professional throughout the entire process. Price was competitive with other companies providing similar products, and the quality of the doors and the workmanship were worth the cost. The doors look fantastic, and we will certainly consider using Southern Pride Openings again on future door and window projects.

I will be calling Kelli about some new windows in the near future.

Tom called me the night before he wanted to start construction earlier and asked if they could start earlier then the 8:00 am time. I thought that was an excellent idea. Tom and Justin came in unloaded and prepped an hour or two earlier in the morning. Tom took the time to let me know what he was going to do and how things would go. It went as planned. Tom and Justin removed the sliding glass door, created the new frame for the door, installed insulation in the frame, installed the new door and caulked everything up nice and weather tight. They were both quite courteous, efficient and were very detail oriented. They cleaned up as they went and took the old sliding glass door and hardware with them when they left, which I was very grateful since that meant I would not have to haul it to the curb myself. It was excellent craftsmanship and I recommend them for any door and window work.

Southern Pride Openings entire staff from the front office to the installation crew were amazing.

This is a family-owned operation that works hard and ensures the final product is perfect. Tom was great during our initial meeting by listening to what we were looking for, providing us with options, and not trying to oversell us on products we didn’t need. After hiring this company, the timeframe from placing our order to final installation was approximately 2 weeks. In addition, the installation crew only needed one day to complete our entire installation. The crew was hard working and very professional. Finally, the overall final product turned out wonderful! We would highly recommend Southern Pride Openings to any of friends, family, or other Angie’s List members.

We love our new door! We’re VERY happy with the services provided by Southern Pride Openings.

They’re an A+++ company! Very professional every step of the way. It was pleasant picking out a door with Larry who was helpful in recommending different products without trying to over-sell. Tom is a pro! He did a beautiful job installing the door. He did a great job cleaning up, as if they were never here. My husband who is very picky said that he loves the new door. We’ll DEFINITELY use them again when we replace our windows later on this year. I’ll tell all my friends & family about how GREAT Southern Pride Openings is.

This family owned and operated company is comprised of true professionals. The service was great, painless and flawless.

The door looks great and everything was done to perfection including cleanup. The door has a lifetime warranty and the quality is awesome. From the ordering process through installation, this group was responsive and efficient.
