About Rochester Colonial

Committed to excellence since 1947.

Rochester Colonial Storefront


Founded in 1947, Rochester Colonial is a third-generation family owned business with over 100 employees dedicated to serving the window and door needs of Greater Rochester and beyond.


Our customers include tens of thousands of homeowners as well as homebuilders, general contractors, businesses, and institutional customers ranging from colleges and universities to hospitals, churches, school districts, and many more. With over 200,000 square feet of facilities, a fleet of over 50 vehicles, an in-house installation and service team (no subcontractors), and a wealth of experience, we are the region’s one-stop resource for windows and doors. 


Rochester Colonial is the exclusive regional dealer for the nation’s finest window and door manufacturers.  We are also a manufacturer in our own right, with a state-of-the art plant here in Rochester that builds some of the most acclaimed custom hardwood windows and doors in the world. As a result, we are able to offer the widest selection of windows and doors of any company in America.


Our founder, Sam Gionta, was driven by the belief that quality windows and doors should be available to everyone regardless of budget. That belief is in our DNA. So whatever the size of your home or budget, we’d be honored to discuss solutions for your window and door needs in a free, no-pressure consultation.


Wherever you are in the Rochester region, we are already there. From cozy cape cods to stately manors, from learning centers to medical centers, from the places we play to the places we pray…. our windows and doors are everywhere. And we thank you for that privilege.

Why We Are The Experts

We have been selling and installing windows and doors since the 1940s. Many of our employees have been with the company for more than twenty years, and our newer employees learn from the best.



Rochester Colonial began in 1947 as Laquig Colonial, a manufacturer of storm windows. In 1960 Sam Gionta purchased the company, then located on College Street, and renamed it Rochester Colonial. It remained primarily a manufacturer and distributor of aluminum windows and doors for home and commercial renovation projects until the 1980s, when it entered the vinyl and wood window business.



Over the years, we have been awarded many accolades for our hard work and devotion to our customers.




“Rochester” is our first name and we are committed to help making a difference in our community. Rochester Colonial supports a number of local not-for-profit organizations, including Villa of Hope, which serves at-risk youth, Catholic Charities Community Services, which provides care and advocacy for people with disabilities, HIV/Aids and other illnesses, Daystar, a facility for medically fragile children, and many others.




Rochester Colonial is a family owned business that is now three generations strong. As a third generation family-owned business Rochester Colonial has deep roots in the community. We are your neighbors and friends, and we feel a personal bond with our customers. We will do everything we can to make your experience with us an outstanding one, and if it isn’t we will do everything we can to make it right.
