Brandon resident Assosouvale Pili’s home was invaded with the sounds of the outside world. The sounds of birds chirping, dogs barking and lawnmowers broke the solitude that he was looking for in his home. “I had old single pane windows and every little noise outside could be heard,” he said.

Pili decided to replace his windows, so he researched companies and chose to hire NewSouth Window Solutions.

“From the salesperson to the installer, everyone was so professional and confident in their work,” said Pili.

He wasn’t the only one to think so. When the county inspector came to make sure the work was done correctly, he was impressed with the quality windows.

Now, with his new vinyl-frame, double pane windows installed, Pili said the birds, dogs and lawnmowers are still making noise but he doesn’t hear it.

NewSouth Window Solutions Owners Dan and Deb Ochstein and Earl and Amy Rahn said that is exactly why they left successful careers at one of the country’s largest window manufacturing companies to open NewSouth Window Solutions in Florida in 2010.

“We came here to bring energy-efficient windows to the state,” said company President Earl. “Single pane aluminum windows ,which used to be so popular here in home construction, no longer meet current energy codes.”

In addition to dramatically cutting down on outside noise, NewSouth Window Solutions’ windows save money on energy bills year round, add value to homes, extend the life of air conditioning and heating units, add curb appeal, improve security and protect carpet and furniture from fading due to UV damage.

Earl said NewSouth Window Solutions, located at 4901 Oak Fair Blvd. in Tampa is not a window store. As a factory direct company, custom windows are made in their factories for each individual customer, put on the back of their trucks and driven to customers’ driveways.

“We offer an unconditional, non-prorated lifetime warranty on our windows,” said Marketing Director Amy. “It’s the last window you’ll ever need.”
