Hartford Window Installers from people just like you.

"They were very professional--met all dates/appointments, did a quality job installing quality windows. They explained how it would look slightly different from the" 60 year old windows I had. They also fixed an older window I had which they had not installed. In addition, they provided a new screen to replace one with a hole in it (for a small fee); again, they had not installed the original window. I was very happy with the service and would use them again.

"The guys arrived on time the first time. The process took a couple of days, which was spread out over a weekend. When they left the property, they left all the trash" outside on the lawn and in the driveway. When they were installing our sliders, they got paint on our white blinds that has never come off. The slider that was initially installed was the wrong size, so the lock didn't work. We had to put a stick in the door until that was fixed (more than a month elapsed). When winter came, we found that a gap had developed on one side of the glass panels. We had to put insulation materials in there to try and stop the bitter cold from coming in. When the repair person came eventually (months passed), they fixed the problem. Then the lock on the sliders simply wouldn't work again and a gap developed on the other end of the glass panels. We kept trying to reach Champion, but all the numbers were now out of service. Finally, I called their main office in Ohio, and they referred me to the Massachusetts office. The office that had done our job was no longer operating. No one from Mass. called us back. We kept trying and got first one, then a second promise and date for someone to come and do the repairs. Both times, they didn't show up and didn't call. We are now moving from our place and are trying to find someone else locally who can do the repairs. We would never recommend using Champion. All in all, it has been a horrible experience.

Replacement Windows

Replacing your home's windows may require a large investment. Learn what types of materials are available and what those energy efficiency ratings mean.

This handy infographic provides tips on household tasks to do in autumn, including gutter cleaning, roof inspections, chimney cleaning and stopping drafts around windows and doors. How Angie's List can help.

Replacing double-hung wooden windows with newer vinyl windows may seem like an obvious choice, but it's not your only option.

Buyer beware: unscrupulous contractors and shady deals are everywhere.

Angie's List member Eric D. of Chicago had three storm windows installed during a larger window replacement project.

Adding storm windows can improve your home's energy efficiency.

Angie's Answers


Hello - I hope my answer will help point you in the right direction.


The reason you're having a hard time getting clear information is because there are hundreds of companies saying their window is the best. There are probably millions of different features you can choose to have for your windows and in price ranges from $169-$1200 (per double-hung window).


I've been in the business for 15 years and have seen many different window products from many different dealers and manufacturers. This all comes down to: "what's important for you and your home?" If you want a strong warranty from a company who has a full-time service department to give you piece of mind and service your windows should needs be, or are you looking at only those companies who offer true wood interior windows that you can paint or stain to match the home decor? Whatever is your hot-button, then that's where you want to start.


I would recommend you first choose how you want your new windows to look. Wood-interior with vinyl clad is only offered by certain companies, while there is a vinyl woodgrain finish to give you similar results without the maintenance. If you're only looking for a white interior and don't want the maintenance, a fiberglass or vinyl window would be the best choice from what is offered in the market today (vinyl will be less expensive - not necessarily cheaper quality). If you are going to change out a window to a french door and a door to a window, then you WILL NEED to find a contractor with some carpentry experience. Some companies will tell you upfront that they do not handle those sorts of remodeling projects due to the complexity and time it would take to get it complete.


Unfortunately, we won't be able to personally help you with your project as we work in the New England Area. However, if you wish to talk further, please feel free to email me at: sven@ritewindow.com and I'll be happy to let you know our prices for what we offer so you can compare and hopefully find a similar company to do the work for you near the Austin area.




Get your roofer back out there.  Course of shingles above the window need to be pulled, self sealing flashing, drip caps, and counter and step flashing are going to be required here. 


This is a flashing issue as the window connects to the mansard roof surface. 


Condensation and a leak are two different and very noticeably different (i.e. volume) things.


Flashing and roofing on Mansards can be tricky but is sounds very much like a roofing issue. 


For a broken window (or leaking seal in multi-pane unit), for a standard roughly 2x3 foot window, can run from low of about $75-125 for single pane to more like $200-300 range for triple pane, depending on construction and any special ultraviolet or heat reflective coatings. If a removeable window unit, of course cheaper to remove it and take to replacement glass place then have them come out, measure glass size, order glass unit, then come back to install.


If taking in yourself, commonly they can do single-pane in an hour or two, but count on a week or so typically for sealed double or triple pane unit to come in, so you will have to seal the opening in the interim. That is an advantage of having them come out - they measure and determine type of unit on first visit and can seal with tape and plastic sheeting (if you have not already done that), then come back with new unit and install a week or two down the road - but you are not stuck with an opening in the wall for a long time.




Much easier to scratch and typically not as good a finished quality as compared to glass.


Benefits are the resistance to breakage as mentioned by LCD.  Any glazing shop should be able to re-create that panel. 


Thermal numbers look okay when looking at the NFRC.


Do you have any other data on them?  Air infiltration, Design Pressure, Visible Transmittance, and Condensation Resistance are all good evaluators.




Air infiltration rate is way high at 0.21.


It may look nice in person but the performance numbers are below average. 

If you are being sued and/or counter suing, then you should hire a lawyer.  While you can do small claims court and sue without a lawyer, the Contractor's insurance will provide him a lawyer to defeat you.  Plus, odds are good the Contractor has more court experience than the average Home Owner, especially if this is his standard opperating procedure.  If you go against a lawyer, you will lose, even if you are right (Saying the right thing at the wrong time is very bad in court rooms.  Get a lawyer who knows the processes).

Once you decide you are suing, there should be no further contact or access to the property with the contractor.  If you have already been told you are suing, you should stop all access to your property (you are allowing them to gather evidence AGAINST you.  Your lawyer may be able to reach an agreement outside of court to allow the contractor to fix the work within a specific time period, but even then make sure you are not in contact with the contractor.  Anything you say, will be turned against you ("The Home Owner said it was okay.")

A building official has no legal obligation in court; his job is safety and minimum construction requirements as allowed per Code.  He has no say over materials and methods, and cannot assess damage. (IRC doesn't have a requirement that the door you mention exceed 35", so he won't care it isn't 36" as an example).  What he CAN do is state if the work is unsafe or causing other conditions which are unsafe.  Let your lawyer decide; but it is not in your best interest to have the Building Offical inspect with the contractor.

To sue you need to show damages.  Get another contractor (get some references or hire an architect to help ensure you get what you need) to inspect the work and give an estimate to repair.  The amount the contractor(s) estimates becomes what you seek in court (plus court fees) from the contractor.  If his work caused problems, you should be suing, not sued.

Also, be aware that no door manufacturer makes an actual 36" door (as an example).  They each have their own frame sizes, so a "36 door" in reality will be 35 7/8" to 35 3/8".  Each door maker has slightly different sizes (go online, you can see Pella, Anderson, Kolbe-Kolbe, etc. have their actual sizes available for PDF downloads).  If you replace a Pella 36" with an Anderson's 36" they won't fit perfectly.  In fact, the different styles within the same manufacturer are sometimes even different.  The purpose of trim is to hide the gap between the wall and door frame, so your door may be perfectly fine in size and method of installation. 

When you have this work corrected (and for any future work) utilize the services of a lisenced Architect.  They will oversee the work, review requests for payments and document existing conditions and conditions found during construction to prevent the situation you are now in.  They will also ensure the proper permits are filed and the inspections called for.  Because they are a third party to the agreement, they can be the 'bad guy' and make the contractor perform, where you just have to pay the invoices they approve.  The contractor deals with the Architect (and vice versa) and you get the project you wanted. The cost of the architect would have been around $3,200 and is minimal compared to what you are dealing with now, the peace of mind is worth it and architects often find cost savings that go directly back to the Home Owner.  When you account for time alone, you will have spent more than this on just preparing and attending the court case.

Because this is headed to court, stop all communication with the contractor and get yourself counsel.  Good luck.

Window Replacement reviews in Hartford


The factory sent the wrong style replacement door. This vendor politely took back the door, which had been already custom-painted, at no charge and helped us find an equivalent door from the catalog. They are installing the replacement door in two weeks. I cannot say how much we appreciated their professionalism and helpfulness.
- C B.

We had three appointments set up for a fairly large job and when failed to keep all three we decided to choose a more reliable contractor.
- Karen D.

The entire job went very well and I was pleased with the quality of the windows and doors. The installer was a subcontractor for that specialized in window and door replacement. The installer was terrific and I have been very pleased with the quality of the installation. Subsequently, I had a few minor callback items. The ...More wholesaler was not very responsive. I called my salesman and he was terrific in getting the minor problems addressed.

They do great work, and offer a good variety of service. I have always been very happy with them and will continue to use them.
- Gloria L.

We have a very large old house that needed updates and repair. was very dependable, hard working and provided quality work at a reasonable price. I have had them in recently for estimates on more work. I would recommend them.

They have very good work ethics. Their actions and attitude are very pleasant to be around. They were careful of the plants under the windows and the furniture inside the house

After installing the windows, my wife had problems with closing them, etc. She thought the installation should have been better. We called them and they came back and made sure everything worked better.
- WES D.

They got the work done so fast. It turned out really good. They showed up on time. The windows look really nice. I was very pleased with the turnout. They knew what they were doing.
