Meet Simonton's "Party on the Patio" Prizewinners!

The folks at Simonton Windows & Doors launched the "Party on the Patio" contest to find homeowners with patios in desperate need of perking up. It was not an easy task to sort through the thousands of entries that poured in from across the country. In the end, they hand-picked a trio of winners, from Indianapolis, Fort Worth, and Cleveland, who each received a brand-new Simonton patio door, a complete patio makeover, and $1,000 cash to host a celebratory party. Read on to see the remarkable transformations.
