Our father, Pete Sr., was born of Italian immigrant parents from Sicily in 1925 in Akron Ohio.He &
Mom raised, 3 boys & 3 girls in West Akron, in the home Grandpa Conte built while working at the Akron Rubber factory.
Our parents were married 63 years, with Dad's passing early in 2012, age 86, and Mom survives.
Dad started in the Remodeling business in Akron in 1957, after serving as Union rep for Borden Milk Co.His
first Retail company was a success with over 25 employees,On-Side Siding company. The 3 boys, Pete Jr. , Michael, & David
, all have boyhood memories of Saturdays in the Showroom, and Storm Window manufacturing plant later added.
So, from the early 1960's, the family pioneered their way into Vinyl Window & Siding products. This was
unique among a thriving 'aluminum' window & siding industry. They learned Vinyl was the future ! Today Vinyl Window
sales comprise 90% of the Ohio Window market.
Pete Sr. , was forward thinking and served as National Sales Manager for a grass-roots Chicago Vinyl Producer
from 1964-68. The 3 boys traveled with him during Summer breaks, learning the Vinyl Window industry, seeing the generational
upgrades in Vinyl Technology.
As the 60's ended & 70's began, Pete Sr. awaited the boys graduation from schools and college. But chomping
at the bit, Pete Jr. & Michael left Akron University after 1 year, to join the new family business opened in Central Ohio
1973.Both Pete Jr. and Michael were newlyweds as well. David would join the business , while in River Valley High School
Conte Remodelers then began as a Vinyl Siding & Window Dealer, enjoying outstanding growth with thousands
of customers over the next decades. Delaware Ohio became the next logical expansion for the business, because of Delaware's
The decades that followed, allowed us to expand to all types of home remodeling. Room Additions, Roofing,
Basements, Concrete,New Home Building, etc.
As early as 1982, Our Family Remodeling company was recognized as " One of
Americas Top 500 Remodelers", by highly respected "Qualified Remodeler" magazine.
By the early 2000's, we would add the Window Depot USA product line to our business, after careful study
of the product line and manufacturer's core company ideals.
In 2011, local area residents voted Conte Remodelers/Window
Depot USA, the area's " Best Remodeler 2011 ", published in the Marion Star newspaper.
Each of the 3 of us sons, thankful that Dad allowed us to find our niche, found his 'thunder' within the business.
Some excel at design & production, another enjoys people & sales, or estimating & office procedures. Each of us
ended up doing what we loved ! ( Michael spent 1 hour applying new siding, walked into the office, then joined sales) Actually,
all 3 boys enjoy many facets of the business, and do a little of everything STILL !
We bring a rich heritage to our business. Not just longevity, but real passion
for what we do. Example: We will show you explicitly, that our warranties on Siding, Windows, & Roofing are unmatched

Thank you- from the Conte Boys( and girls too !).
