As residents of Palos Verdes Estates know, making what even small changes in a home remodel is incredibly difficult. PVE’s Art Jury must approve every tiny modification you consider, and most of the time, they’ll say no. You want to upgrade your roof from red-tile shingles to a more modern style? NO. You want to change the color of your home to be like Mr. Pine? NO. You want to improve your windows insulation performance, lifetime, and keep your house’s historical look? NO…well… That is, until recently.
Jim Cook of Cook’s Windows & Doors, a South Bay company that has been fitting windows and doors in new homes and remodels for almost 90 years, has finally been able to make an upgrade during a remodel. Jim knew what it was going to take going in as he and his family have been residents on the Palos Verdes Peninsula for over 55 years. But since that’s what his customer wanted, Jim lowered his shoulder, gritted his teeth, and worked hard with the art jury and all of the architects and contractors involved, and put in late hours to make sure that’s what his customer got. Nobody else in his business has ever been able to do it. Or, they simply weren’t willing to work hard enough for it.
But Cook’s is. They do whatever it takes to make their customers happy.
There are some things the Palos Verdes Estates Art Jury simply won’t tolerate. But thanks to Cook’s, there’s one less item on the list. It’s an impressive feat, and Cook’s Doors and Windows were the first to do it.
Congrats Jim, Bob, and the whole Cook’s team! We celebrate your triumph of collaboration to help make Palos Verdes Estates home owners happier!
