The Murdock Window Project in Coffeyville

(Abe and I deliver Christmas gifts to the Murdocks. Peep the new windows!)

We love teachers and think they are such a key piece of every community. That's why we were thrilled to work with Mr. and Mrs. Murdock, dedicated educators in the Coffeyville, Kansas School System, on their home improvement project. Our latest endeavor involved installing Endure Provia windows in their charming Coffeyville home, a project that not only uplifted their living space but also allowed us to contribute to the lives of those who nurture our future generations. This project required careful planning and precision, given the unique window shapes and the specific demands of working with brick.

The Importance of Precision in Custom Window Installation

The Murdocks' home presented a unique set of challenges. Each custom-shaped window needed to fit perfectly into the existing brickwork, a task that required exact measurements and detailed craftsmanship, especially with the half-round top shapes. (It is a bit harder to submit these shapes with exactness than it is a rectangular window.) With the lengthy manufacturing time for custom shapes with custom colors, accuracy in the initial stages was essential to avoid delays. (It did take a while to get them manufactured but the Murdocks were champs!)

The Endure Provia Windows: A Blend of Elegance and Efficiency

When the Murdocks approached us, they were looking for a solution that would enhance their home's functionality, comfortability, and energy efficiency. After thorough consideration and consultation with our team members, they opted for Endure Provia windows. Here's why these windows were the perfect choice:

  • Durability: Known for their robustness, Endure windows are built to withstand the test of time, ensuring that the Murdocks won't have to worry about frequent replacements or repairs.

  • Energy Efficiency: These windows are not just about aesthetics; they're also about efficiency. With exceptional insulation properties, they help reduce energy bills, a feature particularly important in the varying Kansas climate.

  • Customizable Aesthetics: The choice of a bronze exterior, which intriguingly appears almost black, was both a stylish and practical decision. This color not only complements their home's facade but also offers better longevity with less warping compared to traditional black finishes.

Enhancing the Bay Window

One significant aspect of this project was modifying the bay window at the rear of the house. By converting it into two larger windows, we aimed to improve the home's energy efficiency and reduce future maintenance needs. This change not only upgraded the home's functionality but also ensured energy efficiency and longevity.

Roof Inspection and Assurance

In addition to window installation, we inspected the Murdocks' roof. Fortunately, it was in good condition, with still pliable shingles and only minor issues around the chimney flashing it was good to give them a clean bill of health there, which of course was welcome news for the homeowners.

Building Relationships Through Quality Work

The completion of the Murdocks' window installation project was a significant moment for both the family and our team at Ram's Head. Their feedback about the improved insulation and energy efficiency of their home was gratifying. More so, their request for additional quotes reflected a growing trust in our services, which we deeply value.

Our approach extends beyond the technical aspects of construction; it's about building relationships and understanding our clients' unique needs and their place in the community. When a customer works with us, you feel as if they become friends. We're committed to fostering trust with every project, aware of the responsibility that comes with being entrusted with someone's home and comfort. We get to know them, their interests, and why they are important in their community. We know how hard it can be to trust a contractor with your home, your money, and most importantly your family. We are thankful when people hire us and we know that the most important thing we can deliver to grow our business is ongoing trust.


In conclusion, the Murdock home window upgrade project was an opportunity for us at Ram's Head to demonstrate our skills in custom window installation and our commitment to serving our community's educators. The project, from the custom-shaped windows to the roof inspection, was a journey that strengthened our relationship with the Murdocks and reinforced our dedication to providing quality, efficient, and aesthetically pleasing home solutions. We look forward to continuing this journey, helping more families like the Murdocks enhance their homes and lives.

At Ram's Head, every project is a step towards building stronger communities, one home at a time. We're grateful for the trust placed in us and are excited to see what the future holds for our collaborations with the wonderful residents of Coffeyville and beyond.
