Commonwealth Energy Systems

Founded 1999 • Angie's List since August 2006

A Rated | 30 Reviews


Commonwealth Energy Systems opened for business on April 6, 1999, but we were not the new kids on the block. The owner, Stephen Smith, and eight key employees had all worked for the largest window and siding company in Central Virginia and had a combined experience of over 170 years in the home improvement field. We all had learned that just selling a quality product was not enough. Even the best product is not satisfactory if it is not installed properly. We pride ourselves on the very best window and siding installers who only work for us. It is much more cost effective to do the job right the first time. Much of our business is obtained by referrals from our satisfied customers. We do have a service department, because some things are unavoidable such as glass breakage. When service is required, we do it in a timely fashion. We are proudly celebrating our 15 year anniversary....

I've never contracted with this vendor but they've started spaming me out of the blue. Apparently they picked up an email list for Richmond folks and submitted them to some service called "" Not appreciated and less than professional.

Never used them and they've submitted my name from a list to a junk service by the name of "". Not appreciated and less than professional.

i am truly sorry Mr. Dental. This company came highly recommended to us as a tool to network with other business. In retrospect we should have researched them before connecting with the company. We did some work for you in the past and we communicated via email at the time we were doing business with you.. Thank you for enlightening us on their operations. Again please accept my sincere apologies ...

The installation crew showed up on time and were done within the day as anticipated. Almost all of the work was done from the outside and they kept everything very clean. Excellent service and outstanding product - these windows are gre...

Excellent service and pricing.  Commonwealth uses formed PVC for the rounded brick mold, not wood.  The windows turned out not to be a perfect half round--height was short by 1 inch.  They were able to accommodate including replacing the interior trim with formed PVC, which was not in the original quote, at no extra charge.  This required them to come back a second day, but the windows were instal...
