Larsen Construction installs and replaces all types of doors and windows for residential clients throughout the Greater Bay Area. The company’s window expertise extends to bay, bow, picture, garden, casement, and single and double hung styles, and it’s certified by several leading manufacturers, including Marvin and Milgard. Door styles include swing French, entry and sliding patio.

Owner Jim Larsen has more than 25 years of experience in the home improvement industry. He says he was drawn to establish Larsen Construction after seeing an industry need for a company that was willing to complete the entire window and door installation process. “I’m personally involved in every project from beginning to end, which allows me to focus on minute details that most companies overlook.”

Larsen Construction’s 2,000-square-foot Hayward showroom displays all its window and door products in practical settings so customers can see how they function before they make their final decisions. “The showroom is an enormous asset,” says Mr. Larsen. “It’s especially important for higher-end products, where quality workmanship can be difficult to explain but easy to demonstrate.”

Company Philosophy

“Our aim is to treat every customer exactly the way we’d want to be treated. We accomplish this by addressing and documenting all issues up front so both parties have a clear understanding of a project’s details. We’re absolutely committed to our clients—they can count on us to keep our promises and deliver quality work at fair prices.”
