The worst, most expensive experience ever. First of most of the so called custom cabinetry and closet system were neither custom nor wood, but Closets Plus prefabricated laminate materials. Only the bathroom cabinets were actual wood. I found this out when one of the installers mentioned it to be when I asked why the products weren't fitting quite right. I had actually cancelled a project with California Closets because Precision claimed their project was completely custom. This was not true at all yet the price was some three times of California Closets.
Before beginning the job, Precision instructed me to purchase a

sink, then they removed my pedestal sink. This was in 2011. In 2014, I am still without a bathroom sink. The agreement was that once we found a countertop, I would pay additional for them to finish the work. In the interim, they were to install a temporary plywood counter so we would have use of the sink. This never happened, nor did the fabulous airbrushed wood countertop one of the installers promised me.
Other issues included:
Shoddy ceiling drywall work. Significant gaps were left between the wall and ceiling, which I will have to pay to correct. Then they installed molding over the crown molding in my daughter's room while leaving my drywalled ceiling with no molding at all. I did not ask them to install the molding, which looks ridiculous and I will have to pay to have removed.
The

was hastily built and they told me I would have to finish it myself. Since, a few pieces have come off and the wood is very splintery.
However, this is the worst part. After the
Portland Window Installers Provider Name Locked
was built, the subcontractor handed me the bill and without thinking I wrote a check for the remaining balance that added to some $19,000. Shortly after the worker drove off, I suddenly realized that the work was no where near done so I immediately call Precision and asked them not to cash the check until the work was done and we did a walk through. They told me not to worry - yet they cashed the check anyway. After this began a series of no shows. For three weeks straight Precision made appts with me and never showed up. I tried calling the installer over and over. Finally, the next week I got a call back with the excuse that his phone was stolen. The next week he didn't show because he was in the hospital. The following week I made several calls to the office and when I asked about the worker, I was told that he had apparently just made a visit to the emergency room. On the next no show, I received no excuse at all. Getting them to respond to me was like pulling teeth. Finally, I got so frustrated that at the next time they scheduled and appt, I told them not to come back and that I would pursue other measures.
At this point, I am $19,000 for unfinished work that I will have to pay to complete and repair and three years of living without a bathroom sink. Since, I have attempted to seek remediation. However, the company has no interest in refunding even a penny of the money. To work with a company of such low principles and professionalism is such a disappointment. You would think a company would take a better interest in their customers.

. Twenty-one years ago, we installed vinyl double-paned windows to replace the original single-pane windows in our 1928 home. After several seal failures and learning that we could no longer get replacements for these, we decided it was time to replace all our operable windows. A friend recommended working with
Portland Window Installers Provider Name Locked
of H & D. This was a perfect fit for us--
Portland Window Installers Provider Name Locked
gave us detailed information, making our choice of features and design easy. The windows we selected were the same as those offered by another company who gave us a bid, but $1,000.00 less, with the H & D crew to take down and replace our interior blinds, and with H & D to complete the paperwork for a tax credit. Our new 13 single hung Milgard windows were installed in less than one day. A bonus was that there was virtually no clean up to do when the crew left. The windows work beautifully and we are entirely pleased with our choice of contractor and product.

Sales person (

) arrived promptly on schedule. She was very professional in explaining the product and helping us select from the options presented. The installation crew called to schedule well in advance and arrived on time and finished the job in two days as projected. The installation crew worked well together and we are very pleased with the finished product. Would certainly recommend

and his team were punctual when meeting to review work and provide an estimate and they showed up on time. The project took several days, but was minimally intrusive, although they, of course, needed to work both inside and out to replace trim molding. They cleaned up after themselves everyday. The craftsmanship was outstanding. The house was definitely challenging as none of the window openings were square. Windows fit well and carpentry for trim is excellent.
The work was done over 4 years ago, and has held up extremely well.

Started out great-very punctual, early appointment for in-home consultation, very pleasant. However, when the estimate was emailed to me, there were no details whatsoever (including how much each door would cost), just a number. Then when I asked for more details, (and as an example, asked for how much each door cost), they broke down the total cost into 2 numbers, but did not break down labor, parts, etc. So I never knew the cost of each of the doors. Based on the very vague and limited description, I felt problems would arise after work was completed.

The technician arrived within several hours of my initial call to request service from the company.
The stationary glass pane had to be removed enable removal of the door to obtain access to the rollers.
The provider put new high quality stainless rollers on the door.
The door now rolls like it was brand new.
The technician was leaving before I reminded him that he needed to adjust the reinstalled screen door.

First of all they were late due to traffic, however that wasn't a huge deal. The meeting started off good. The guy who came to give the estimate walked through our house and we looked at all the windows, he had good ideas and were excited to go get the estimate.
Pretty much getting teeth pulled is easier than getting an estimate. They do a very high pitch sales tactic on you. It was similar to a time share presentation. They bank heavily on the
Portland Window Installers Provider Name Locked
name, when in fact they aren't really part of
Portland Window Installers Provider Name Locked
, they are their own franchises... they don't tell you this. We also had to sit through all the bad mouthing of big box stores and vinyl windows. We don't want vinyl windows- we wanted something higher end. When I asked if we could over that the sales man wouldn't. Refused. Said he had to go over the presentation in order to get our estimate. All we wanted was the d*** price. After being at our house for 2.5 hours we had to get our kids from day camp and asked if we could PLEASE get the estimate. Nope, he said we'd need to reschedule in order to get the estimate. So after being at our house for 2.5 hours, sitting though an 1.5 presentation on the windows, the sales guy left without giving us how much it would cost.
They kept touting all their great reviews, but if you dig deeper you find its not true.

was great to work with. He is very honest and does high quality work. We had a double front door replaced and glass replaced in 2 windows. We had other contractors come out to look at windows and they wanted to sell me new windows.

right away said we only needed to replace the glass. He and his partner spent a lot of time installing the front door to ensure it was level, plumb, and well insulated. If you are looking for and honest contractor that does quality work, I would highly recommend

. I will be using him again on future projects.

Not sure if this review is legitimate because I never actually saw anyone from this company they were impossible to get an appointment with and when I did it was going to be literally 2 months before they could even look at my project. After my initial contact with them, I had to repeatedly call them back to try and get an appt., I think they were hoping I would give up, and when I didn't they finally agreed to come out in about 3 weeks, with a promise they would not be able to do the work for 6-8 weeks. I will admit they were at least honest about the time frame and did not want to create unrealistic expectations22 for service. I'm sure when I emailed them that I no longer needed them I'm sure they were relieved to see me go. They might do good work, but I'll never know.
