Founded in 1948
by Grandpa William T. Pedrino, the company originally
sold and installed wood windows and doors. By 1965, Sunsets
founding father was forced to hire his thirteen year-old son to
keep up with demand. For over twenty years, William and Don headed
the company together, improving homes nationwide. In 1998, Sunset
relocated from Hawthorne to El Segundo.
Though the move
only measured four miles, it catapulted the business from four part-timers
to over 25 full-time employees. Working out of larger offices, the
company launched new home renovation products and catered to a growing
list of clients. Dons son was made partner in 2000, and Bill
later moved Sunset to its current location on Main Street.
55 years of growth, weve had one mission making
your old home new again, says Bill. Repeat customers
and referrals know we deliver on that mission every day. Thats
why they keep coming back. Theyve experienced our commitment
to first class service across three generations. This anniversary
is a celebration of that.

Street to help this third generation family business celebrate over
five decades of happy customers.
