"Now for the nightmare part.
's manager told us it would take a week to get a tech out to fix it, despite the fact that we had a full warranty on it. So," a week without doing wash, plus our clothes were damp and locked in the machine. Over the course of the week, we spoke with no less than 12 reps (the management team at this branch and the tech team that were contracted out of Atlanta, Georgia) and got a total run-around in which no two people were on the same page about regulations or policies. I can't even go into detail about how completely moronic and nightmarish this was for us. They kept telling us a time they would be there to fix it, and then call and say they were not coming that day, etc. There were millions of ways they interpreted our warranty stipulation, depending on the manager on the phone at that time. A NIGHTMARE YOU don't WANT TO GO THROUGH. Finally, a manager relented and just gave us back our money. Finally someone that saved the day. More fiasco ensued before they FINALLY came and picked up their lemon! Also beware of Whirlpool washers that go into "Door Lock" mode; there are a lot of complaints of these on the internet--just google them!

"it went well.
provided the best price and was very honest about the time it would take to set a date for installation (pretty much the same time frame as others" I contacted.) The carpenters were very professional and friendly and did a thorough job

"When we bought our house in the spring of 2014, we knew it needed a fair amount of work, including the roof. There are a lot of trees around where we live, and both the roof on the" house, and especially the roof on an outbuilding on our property, were in pretty rough shape. Although one company told us we could get another 10 years or so out of them, no one else we talked with, including our contractor and the home inspector, agreed. We wanted metal because we understood it to be the longest-lasting and most environmentally friendly option overall, so I contacted three different roofing companies for estimates. Of the three,
came in the highest, but it was pretty clear right away why that was. For one,
, who handled the estimate and sales end of the transaction, came out to meet me right on time, and spent nearly an hour walking around the property and explaining the finer points of metal roofing, and our particular roofs. We didn't have keys at that point, so he came back the following week after we closed the sale and spent a bunch more time looking at both roofs from inside the attics. He took pains to explain exactly how
approached a metal roofing job, focusing on what they *did* do rather than what other companies *didn't* do, which I appreciated. He was also the only person who had anything to say about ventilation, which I learned in this process is a critical part of having a long-lasting roof and avoiding problems with mold, etc. (the outbuilding had NO ventilation for the roof and attic, so this was added). Our contractor, whose focus was exclusively the interior of our house but who has decades of experience with various companies all over Portland, told us he'd heard nothing but positive things about
's work. Although it was expensive, we felt confident we were making the right choice, and hired them to do the job. Overall, they did fantastic work. There was a slight delay getting started, but it was clear from the get-go that the weather had an impact on their schedule, and they started only about a week after their initial target date, which didn't matter to us.
, the project manager, kept me well informed of the timing for everything, and continued to check in throughout the entire project, both via email and text, and also stopping by in person. They also took pains to coordinate with our contractor to ensure there wouldn't be any issues with, for example, having a dumpster in the driveway for the old roofing material, or other things where there might be overlapping work happening. This is key -- WE did not have to coordinate these things; they took care of it and kept us informed the whole time. The old roofs on both the house and outbuilding came off in one day, which our contractor said was the quickest he'd ever seen. They did repairs where necessary to the ship lap on our house roof and plywood on the outbuilding roof, and the metal was delivered right on time. During the the walkaround for the estimate,
had also noticed some rotten boards in the soffit, and as part of the ventilation work, arranged for repairs to the soffit on three of the four sides of the house. I heard later that finding the right material for this part of the job took a while, since the house was built in 1962 and this style of board is no longer in wide use, but they we able to match it exactly. Installing a metal roof takes time -- in all, they were going for about three weeks getting both buildings completed. I should mention too that we had hard rains a few times in between the removal of the old roof and complete installation of the new roof, but both buildings were always protected with waterproof material, and we never had any problems with leaking. The team arrived every day between 7 and 7:30, and worked with one short lunch break until at least 5, but most often until 6 or 7 in the evening, never stopping. They were always friendly and extremely courteous. It was damned impressive to watch, and obvious that a great deal of care was taken to install every panel perfectly, to cut openings for all the vent stacks, and ensure that things were properly sealed. In all, we are very happy with the job
did for us -- in addition to being rock solid, the roofs look fantastic, and we've met many of our new neighbors because they've come by to comment on it and ask questions. While it is true we've had these roofs for a relatively short time, everyone we've dealt with at
has insisted that they stand behind their work and will be out immediately to fix any problems in the unlikely event something goes wrong. Given our experience thus far, we have every reason to believe them. We would recommend
to anyone looking for roof work, and will surely hire them for future work on the exterior of our home.

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.

 

Cheers!

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. 

?

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. 

?

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.

?

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.

 

http://www.mercuryexcelum.com/images/customer-files/Advantage.pdf

 

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.

We got several bids for a new roof after the inspection for the purchase of our home revealed that the roof needed to be replaced. We were impressed with the knowledge displayed by

' sales representative, and it seemed that the GAF roof was an excellent quality product. The excellent warranty was also an important factor in our decision to use

's Custom Exteriors.
After the roof was measured and we selected the type and color of shingles, the roof was installed in a timely and professional manner. New vents were placed in the attic to ensure proper air flow and ventilation. A continuous ridge line attic exhaust ventilation system was installed. All of the construction debris was cleaned up and taken away.

's uses a specially formulated roof cleaning system to control moss in our wet climate, and we plan to use them to maintain the roof as needed. It should be noted that one reason we needed a new roof was that the previous owner had power-washed the roof, thereby destroying the stone that would have helped to protect the surface of the roof.
We would definitely recommend

It went extremely well. The men who did the siding work were highly skilled and very pleasant to work with. The subcontractors who did the gutters and siding were also well skilled and efficient. There were a couple of very small issues we informed the project manager about and he was very responsive. Excellent customer service all the way!

I've hired
Portland Window Installers Provider Name Locked
for several jobs over the past few years. Yes, they are expensive, but I would still hire them again for my next big job that requires long-term support. Here is why:
- Sales process:
Portland Window Installers Provider Name Locked
is a completely down-to-earth, problem-solving guy who knows the industry. He has literally spent hours with me to help me brainstorm and plan my projects, and to do what he can to work with me on price. The time he has spent on brainstorming alone is above and beyond. I felt like I was talking to a good friend who cared about my house. I trust him.
- Delivery: I have had two project managers oversee my different projects.
Portland Window Installers Provider Name Locked
and
Portland Window Installers Provider Name Locked
have been nothing but professional and dedicated. On my projects, they have kept me informed of the plan, adjustments needed, things that didn't go as planned, and how they were going to fix them. Yes, there were problems, especially with my siding job. I have had a few subcontractors through them who I was unhappy with. But,
Portland Window Installers Provider Name Locked
was 100% responsive to my feedback. I have never had to make a stink about the problems that occurred, because these PMs took the initiative to put a mitigation plan in place before I had a
Portland Window Installers Provider Name Locked
to get upset. I can honestly say that I feel that
Portland Window Installers Provider Name Locked
and
Portland Window Installers Provider Name Locked
have gone above and beyond to ensure I was happy with the quality of work they provided. They also were cool enough to take photos of unrelated problems on my house that there is no way I would have been able to spot on my own, while they were up on the ladders, enabling me to take advantage of chimney warranties and other types of repairs that other providers were responsible for. They have followed up on my jobs even while they were on vacation. Above and beyond.
- Customer Service: On some of the earlier projects, small things failed over time (gutter leaks, etc) and they have always immediately resolved the problems without giving me a hard time.
You can save money by hiring independents on smaller jobs that don't need the long-term support. But I feel that the extra money is totally worth it on roof, siding, painting, and other things that you may need followup on years later -
Portland Window Installers Provider Name Locked
will much more likely still be in operation, as opposed to the independent who might have retired to Arizona within a few years.
I only wish the price was a bit less. They really are not cheap, but I don't hesitate to recommend them and I would definitely hire them again if I had to do any of it over again.
