“The history of our business dates back to the mid 1970’s in Philadelphia, PA where Paul “Pepper” Petrille (Father of current CEO Leonard Petrille) had the vision to introduce the new technology and efficiency of Vinyl windows to the greater Philadelphia Region. Pop Pepper saw out his vision by opening a manufacturing plant that produced vinyl windows with double pane insulated glass. With the help of his sons they began to offer the installation of these products as well.
As time passed Pepper’s oldest son Leonard began to thrive in this industry and started selling these home improvements all over the tri-state area. Eventually, as Pop Pepper began to slow down, his son Leonard was prepared to take his fathers visions to the next level. Leonard’s vision was to relocate the manufacturing plant and showroom to Atlantic County, NJ. At this time, Atlantic County was booming from the casino industry but the presence of a full service home improvement contractor was not around. Hence the birth of Tilt-In Windows and Siding Inc. in Northfield, NJ in 1986.
Leonard moved his family to this shore area and began to make his presence known. In a short time the business began to grow in leaps and bounds, making Tilt-In Windows & Siding a household name in the South Jersey area. We pride ourselves on the workmanship our trained mechanics preform and always treat our customers home as if it was our own. We are also aware of the change in times and always try to adapt to the newest and most innovative ways of doing business.
Leonard’s two sons Paul and Matthew have taken in their family’s footsteps and embraced the business as well. Paul has been following his Dads’s footsteps since he was a young boy and can be seen selling jobs as well as coordinating the installs throughout the week and bringing fresh ideas and accountability to the business. While Matthew is always present on the job sites to make sure things go smoothly and answer any questions the homeowner may have during the process of their installation. At Tilt-In Windows we take pride in the fact that on every job there will be a Petrille present.
Our business has come a long way from its conception in Philadelphia, and we have the desire to continue our professional and dedicated workmanship to all our valued customers throughout the area. We would like to thank all our patrons for entrusting us with their most precious asset, THEIR HOME!! We promise to treat it just like our own !!
