Bear Window Installers from people just like you.

"Some minor issues that were resolved in a timely manner. Installation crew was very helpful, professional and cleaned up all material inside and out. Minor issue" was with the window manufacturers interior trim work not fully covering the upper side frame channels. ( aesthetics only ). Installer made a separate visit in order to replace with longer trim. Overall the sales and installers were very accommodating.

-Susan B.

"They did a fantastic job!!! showed up on time and was very knowledgeable on their products. I was thrilled by there estimate since " quoted $2500 for 3 windows and after 's estimate, Home Depot came out and gave me an estimate, and theirs was $3900 for 3 windows. I would say the reason I went with , not because they were the least expensive, but I went with them because of how I felt about their professionalism and candid demeanor. didn't try and sell me a product, he sold me a company which I will use for the rest of my windows when the time comes to replace those. who came out and did the measurements, and Kaleb and their crew that did the install, right down to the owner, everyone always did what they said they would and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you !!!!!

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 Bear


The company gave us a bid in August, but told us at that time they were too busy to install until November.We felt the bid was very fair considering the window size and locations, after looking at other project costs on this website. They were responsive and easy to work with on scheduling, arrived promptly when promised, and the installers were polite ...More and neat, always vacuuming as they worked, so our house stayed clean. They had promised to use a sort of screen to protect the interior in case it rained, but fortunately it stayed dry. They spared the plantings beneath the windows, and cleaned up the outdoor mess afterward. The owner, , came by each day to make sure the job was progressing well. We appreciated his sense of responsibility and continuity. The windows look great, and we already feel quite a bit warmer than with the old ones.No more drafts! I really like how the sliders can lock when only partly open - a nice safety feature. The warranty seems very good. The company provided us with the paperwork for any available energy trust rebates. All we have left to do is paint the new trim . It is primed but we want to paint it to match.
- Jill S.

We built a new, custom home and bought all of our windows and doors from & Doors. We had high hopes based on the helpful and productive meetings with during the sales process. We moved into our home in September 2015. Unfortunately, our windows/doors do not function like the ...More ones on the showroom floor. For three months we've been trying to resolve various operational and warranty issues through Northern. I appreciate the progress we've made; however, it's been very slow and some fixes still remain. I don't understand the delays. I believe it's reasonable to expect our doors to lock and our windows to tilt. I will update this review once all is resolved.

- Caroline H.

The order was handled rapidly and the installation was set up for one week later. The workmen were on time, considerate to our home, and made every effort to provide the best possible service. I would definitely use and Mirror again.
- Michele E.

A storm with horizontal rain and high winds last week caused water to come through a double-pane two-part picture window with an arched top, high up in our 2-story living room. As long as we had owned the house, there had been a pressure crack in the inner pane of the upper arched portion, but the condensation that resulted never seemed too much of ...More a concern, But when water started coming in then dripping onto the lower sill and splattering out over a large area of the room, we couldn't tell if it was coming thru the crack, through the junction of the two parts of the window, or somewhere else. As soon as the worst of the wind and rain finished it stopped, but we had already gotten out a ladder and rigged up a container to catch the dripping. Upon inspection, it became apparent by the discoloration of the surrounding sill and trim that this may have happened before. I called a lot of places to see about fixing the window, but all of the local companies said they wouldn't touch a window that they hadn't installed, so my only option was replacement. And the company that had put the windows in when the house was built said there was a 3 week wait before the carpenters would even be able to set an appointment to come out to do an estimate, let alone do the work!
Luckily I had also called , and he happened to be the first appointment. Aside from being early and getting right down to business, he was very friendly and explained everything in great detail. After taking a look, he went ahead and ran some caulk where the two parts of the window met there was a slight gap. He said the window was structurally sound, the issue is with the surrounding trim, so there was no reason for replacement. Offered some ideas on where else the water may be getting in, a gable vent, but it was unlikely, and as it would mean ripping out part of the ceiling to inspect, unless it happens again, there's no reason to go there yet.
Now to go cancel the other appointments I made, all of which seem to be high pressure salesman that are requiring both of us sit thru a 90 minute presentation!
- Stacey B.

My experience with R & R Exteriors went flawlessly. I was told that they would replace siding on a section of my house on Thursday or Friday. They were at my house on Thursday morning at 8:20. They worked all day until it got dark then came back Friday morning to finish. was very nice and did an ...More excellent job. He cleaned up the entire area picking up the smallest of debris. Now I'm waiting for the weather to improve so R&R Exteriors can paint.
- Gary F.

All contractors should operate this way. On-time, outstanding quality and a quick turn-around. The gutters were a perfect color match and the installers obviously take pride in their work, no cutting corners. I'd use them again in a heartbeat.
- Daniel H.

I contacted the office of regarding the replacement of 3 windows in my house that were leaking. I received a call from within 30 minutes of scheduling the estimate with his office to confirm the time and address. was running approximately 5 minutes late but called to let me know ...More about this 15 minutes before the scheduled time. He thoroughly explained all our options and the different choices of windows. He stated that there is an 8-10 window for the windows to arrive at their facility. I received a call the day the windows were delivered and scheduled an install date for the following Saturday. The office called me the Monday before installation and said that they could not install the windows on Saturday and asked if Friday would be OK. That actually worked out better for me. I called 5 other companies for the same job and only received a call back from one of them. I will definitely use again. I have 8 more windows and 4 doors that I will be replacing.
- Pau D.

It did not go as smoothly as I had hoped. Communication was poor, clean up was not done well
One of the screens came damaged and it was to be replaced and now a month later I am told that the replacement was not sent by the manufacturer and it will have to be rescreened.
Everything with this job has been a frustration, we are glad it is ...More finally done and we can move on.
