About Us

Brothers Gene and Ralph


Our Story


Brothers Home Improvement, Inc. was founded in 1994 by brothers Gene and Ralph. The company combined Gene’s business know-how with Ralph’s years of experience in the window industry. Gene and Ralph built Brothers Home Improvement to extend the life and value of homes in the West Coast, and to help homeowners save on their energy bills.

Brothers Gene and Ralph brought the expertise of their seven other brothers and sisters into the company.  This helped ensure that, during each and every phase of growth, the family’s values remained an integral part of all facets of the business. What makes Brothers truly unique is that every single one of the nine brothers and sisters owns and passionately runs the business. As a result, Brothers is widely recognized throughout the industry as an exceptional window company, with over 40,000 satisfied customers in California and Northern Nevada!

Page Break



Brothers began in 1994, when two brothers, Gene and Ralph, set out to start a window company that clearly shined above the others in quality, value, and customer service.

It all started in San Jose, California. Ralph had years of experience in the home improvement industry, and Gene left his position as a senior manager of operations with FedEx to pursue the venture and offer his business know-how.

In 1996 a second location was opened in Roseville, CA (where Gene made his home), while Ralph continued to reside near the San Jose location.

As our company took rank in both market areas, Gene and Ralph enticed numerous trusted family members to join the growing business. Brother Michael left his career with Apple to become Vice President of Sales, brother-in-law Steve became Regional Vice President of operations, and sisters Rocio, Asun, Marisa and Rosa were appointed Directors of Marketing, Administration, Purchasing and Service, and Receivables, respectively.

Brother Vince joined as the technical guru and sister Chiqui as the quality administrator. With our unparalleled reputation, Brothers Home Improvement quickly became a major influence in the window and door replacement industry. Today we are often referred to as “Everyone’s favorite window/door company.”

Today all nine of the Cavanna siblings work for the business, as well as a handful of in-laws, cousins, and a healthy sprinkling of children from the second generation. After having served over 40,000 customers in the past two decades, and with so many family members sharing a mutual passion for our company and looking out for its success, we are proud to call ourselves Brothers Home Improvement, a truly unique family business.
