Window Replacement reviews in Minneapolis
April 2014 we had the windows cleaned and after the cleaning, two of the top windows no longer stayed up when opened. I contacted the window cleaners and they said that they would pay for the repairs.
We had done some fairly extensive research for the repairs in 2013 and
take care of the rest, i.e. $200. My husband and I made this decision because the windows were installed in 1980 and the jamb liners were plastic, so wear and tear was to be expected.
We sent $172.00 (50%) May 18. The repairs were made on June 20. In the course of the repairs, one of the repairmen BROKE the upper pane of glass in the window. The repairmen took the measurements for the broken pane and assured us that
We were contacted about two weeks later and told that someone would need to come out and take measurements AGAIN.
We decided with the repairman on
Overall the quote was just below the other quotes I received and the communication I received through the entire process was unmatched.
The week that
Overall I am very happy and would recommend
We searched around for quotes and were very conflicted on whether to get replacement windows or to attempt to restore the original windows in our 1922 house, along with replacing the hanging storms with modern ones so they would function for us.
I spoke with over the phone on what his services cost without any annoying sales tactics. He is easy to reach and always answers the phone and email. He was willing to come out to the house once we thought we would likely have him do the work. It was a relief that
He does all of the work himself for the new vinyl track retrofit install, which is great because he is very experienced and knowledgeable. The downside is that he's in demand, for good reason. Plan to schedule your appointment months before you want the work done. It's worth the wait.
Since we also had exterior storm windows installed, this work could be done prior to the track restoration. The storm window install was done by his assistant
After looking over the work for a day, we noticed some of the 2x4s were straight to the window frame, but not level to the house, which looked off. I anticipated some sort of argument to have to issue fixed, but
The original windows in our 1922 house now work great, and function like modern windows. To get modern wood windows with an identical look/style would have been astronomically expensive compared to restoration. Even vinyl replacements would have cost twice as much. Our windows function great, the character of the house is maintained, and we have a useable porch. All for way less expense compared to full replacement. Thanks

We had a prior relationship with up and down smoothly, and we were very satisfied. Because of this, when we decided to replace 10 windows in our house we called
After we signed the contract a technician came out to do the final measuring, and he discovered a small discrepancy in our order. We ordered all our windows to have oak veneer rather than vinyl, and one of the windows showed vinyl. Of course there was a price increase. We would have ordered the windows anyway as we were spending $16K and this was a couple hundred dollars difference, but our salesman would not compromise on the price. Yes it was a mistake but it was not our mistake.
Now, the windows. When the installers were done, they pointed out that one of the windows had a wiggly sash and they would take care of ordering a replacement. They also said we should not be concerned with how tight the windows were. When I say tight, I mean difficult to move up and down. They said when the windows "settled" they would loosen up and become easier to open/close.
When we started staining the windows, one of them was so tight that it was scraping the sides of the lower window. Not only that but the handle on this window wiggled. When we went to tighten the screws ourselves we found the screws were stripped. The same thing happened on another window. So immediately 3 of our 10 windows had issues. Admittedly the stripped screws on the handles were minor issues but there should have been NO issues at all.
We waited 4 weeks for the replacement sash without hearing from
I will update this review and "grades" when the project is complete. As of now we are totally unsatisfied customers.
We think we're the best, and we can prove it.
