About Us - The Men With Tools Windows & Doors
Here at The Men With Tools Windows & Doors, we’re about building relationships with our customers, not “burning and churning” through them like other big box corporations.
Our owner, John Kolbaska, a third-generation carpenter, brings over 23 years of expertise in the industry and has personally seen the sneaky, tricky sales tactics and corner cutting on the installation side that most other companies use.
He understands windows and doors and is an encyclopedia of knowledge. John’s sold and installed thousands of replacement windows from hundreds of manufacturers and settled on his 4 favorites based on his experience with them— Soft-Lite & Sunrise in vinyl and Andersen & Pella in wood.
“When we started The Men With Tools, I decided that we would only sell high-quality vinyl and wood windows with professional installation, without high-pressure sales tactics." "If you’re looking for a cheap window, an inferior installation, tricky marketing gimmicks and enjoy high-pressure sales presentations that drag on for 3 hours or more, you can go somewhere else for that." said John.
"We believe that our customers are looking for quality, honesty and they expect to deal with professionals through every step of their project" said John. From the moment you contact us, to years after the installation has been completed, you will be impressed at how we treat our customers.
The Men With Tools Name Is Born
For the first three years, our company operated under the name JKOLB Inc., but many customers found it confusing — misspelling and mispronouncing it.
With this problem at hand, John decided he wanted a name that would not only be relevant to the industry, but something memorable — not just a standard first and last name like most other companies use.
After doing days of research, consulting with professionals, family and friends trying to brainstorm a unique name, a customer called us "The Men With Tools" after seeing our massive collection of tools in the back of our trucks, and thus the name was born.
“Our new name is fun, unique, and memorable,” John said. “That’s important.”
