Installation went as planned. It did take a full crew 1 day to install, but I didn't realize the amount of work for a proper installation. The home now looks like a proper Florida home.

Very professional competent company. Everyone I had contact with in this process from the individual who came by for the first sales appointment, to the office staff and finally

Very satisfied with the product given. I received a few electric roll down shutters, a few manual roll down shutters, and numerous accordion type shutters. I was surprised at the high price of having shutters installed, but this company was right in line with other quotes I received. Communication could have been a little better. Salesman was professional but I never heard from him once sale was made - some follow up would have been nice, even just to let me know what to expect - I didn't know inspector and electrician would be coming out on different days than the installation date. Also, I was not home on day of installation and found a bag full of plugs, with no note or anything. They cover up the screw holes. I thought maybe they expected me to put the 100+ plugs in myself, but upon calling the office was told they needed to stay out until the inspector came. Glad I called - this should have been told to me by the salesman. They did have someone come out to do them. The color of the lower horizontal piece does not exactly match the rest of the frame but I was told this is normal due to ordering those pieces from a separate manufacturer. I was thinking this company did all of their own manufacturing but the office said some pieces are ordered out, which all the companies do. It really is not noticeable unless you look closely - not sure all the colors will have that slight bit of a mismatch or just the beige ones that I had ordered. Also, had I to do it over again, I think I would not go with any manual roll

as they are harder to deal with than the accordion shutters and more expensive. The electric ones are nice though (of course they can be done manually if there is no electrical service). I've heard so many negative things about shutter companies and there are so many to choose from. This is a good, honest company and I would recommend them.

We signed contract (October 2013) and was promised installation by salesperson to be done in 3 - 4 weeks. Finally we received a call that our windows would be installed on

. 21st. We called them to see what time they would arrive and found out they were not coming until the next week (

. 28th). The installation took 2 days which was OK with us. Two of our windows were not as we ordered. To be fair

did order the correct windows. PGT came and replaced the windows that were incorrect. Once that was fixed

called Sarasota County to inspect the windows. They were inspected on March 12, 2014. The inspection failed because we did not have tempered glass in one window.

had to replace the window pane and then have it re-inspected. The window panes were replaced May 6th. To be fair we were gone for 2 weeks during that period. The re-inspection passed. Now we had to have the screw holes capped. The screw holes were left uncapped so the inspector could be sure the windows were installed correctly. One screen also had to be fixed. The job was finally finished except for the screen on

24th after many calls to have it done. The screen was finally delivered to us on

30th. We were gone for 6 weeks in May & June. Our frustration with

is that the completion of the job took so many telephone calls and promises of fixing the problems. They would promise someone would be here and no one would show up. The product was not at fault it was the telephone calls and the time it took to complete the installation to satisfaction.

was my primary contact and project manager for
Melbourne Storm Shutter Installers Provider Name Locked
and we was a valuable asset from the beginning. I initially invited him to quote only on the power operated roll-up storm doors that needed to be replaced on our 16 year old home. Of the four contractors I contacted he was the most qualified, trustworthy and competitive and he was awarded the contract. This is his company's true strength and they did a fantastic job.

was his installation leader and he was probably the finest contractor representative that we encountered on the entire remodeling project. I can't say enough about his work ethic and caring attitude. He also did a great job on the storm panels mounted on a few windows and doors that were not replaced. Once the storm door decision was made I began shopping around for a window contractor. I met 3 other contractors and got some very scary (exhorbitantly high) pricing while still not being satisfied with the products offered or the installation itself. Fortunately,
Melbourne Storm Shutter Installers Provider Name Locked
told me that he offered the impact windows we were seeking. Once I got his pricing and learned about the installation process involved I felt confident that
Melbourne Storm Shutter Installers Provider Name Locked
was our best alternative. It turned out that there were some significant issues (exterior stucco, irregular window measurements, etc.) that had to be tackled to get our windows installed. Some went in without much of a fight but several were very tricky. During the installation
Melbourne Storm Shutter Installers Provider Name Locked
learned that his primary window installation leader was making some mistakes and the installation was slow and arduous. (I found out later this guy left the company.) After all was said and done we are happy with the window work they did although there were a couple issues that became apparent. One had to do with the stucco repairs that had to be made after they ripped out the old windows and installed the new. That was an expense that was not part of our budget and we had to find a different contractor to do that work. (
Melbourne Storm Shutter Installers Provider Name Locked
from
Melbourne Storm Shutter Installers Provider Name Locked
put me in touch the one that did the work.) The other concern was that there are some exposed mounting screws on the inside of the windows that we had no idea would be part of the final installation. Otherwise, we are delighted and we'd use them again. The exterior doors were also a challenge for
Melbourne Storm Shutter Installers Provider Name Locked
. We're not as happy about this portion of the project as with the others. I also got the impression they weren't happy either. It was a real fight to install a few doors and the frustration was very obvious from them. There was one door in the back of our garage that was especially difficult. We aren't happy with the way it is not flush with the exterior wall. They worked long and h****** that door and they convinced me that it was the best they could do. The stucco repairs have been made and we certainly don't want to undo what's been done. There were installation struggles on nearly all of the doors they did. I have to presume that this was not their expertise and could not recommend them for exterior door work for others until they get someone on board that has the experience and skills necessary. If it weren't for the frustration on the exterior doors

should get a "contractor of the year" award. Those doors caused quite a bit of stress for
Melbourne Storm Shutter Installers Provider Name Locked
and he wasn't himself after that happened. (It should also be noted that he was beginning to get lots of other new business at the time and he had to be focused on that.) But for the most part they did a great job. I expressed concern over some clean up issues and they immediately improved for the duration of the project. I especially enjoyed and appreciated most of the workers on our job.

and

were the two standouts.

is a great guy and he is certainly someone that you can trust. I only wish that he had already worked through his personnel issues beforehand and had managed the stress a bit better at the tail end of our project.

Initial contact was through email. Received prompt response on the next business day. Rep was able to email me several option to replace the front doors of my home. Settled on Aluminum impact doors. Got a couple of competing quotes and decided to go with D&D. Paid the deposit, had the doorway measured, and was told when the doors were ready I would be contact for an install. Within two weeks, they were ready to install the next Monday. Install went smoothly but I did have some minor issues I wanted corrected. D&D worked with me on each item and only when I was satisfied was I asked for final payment. I know I will be updrading windows and other doors in the future and will be sure to use D&D.

Purchased new motorized solar roller shades for my large windows facing west. The sun was making my condo so hot and needed something to helped with heat and looked modern.

showed me over 100 patterns, styles and colors to choose from. I was also able to choose the amount of sun I wanted to block out. They look great and did a great job installing also.

the owner responded fast to my call regarding an estimate to install 15 hurricane impact windows all around the house along with 2 doors. The required measurements were done and after doing background checks on all the companies that responded for an estimate I felt comfortable with
Melbourne Storm Shutter Installers Provider Name Locked
. The measurements were sent to the manufacturer for fabrication and a permit was pulled. As soon as the windows were made the old 1969 style windows were knocked out and taken away. The new windows were quickly installed and the County inspection went perfect with no problem.

was able to match on price but provided superior screens than 2 other competitors in the area. He was also able to design a screen for our covered 2 story entry area that the other 2 competitors were not able to work out.

also honored the Angieslist discount. He provided sealed wheeled storage containers for the screens suitable for storage in our walk in attic.

also went the extra distance and supplied a builders discount and transported a 24 foot extension ladder to our home where we could deploy the screens if required. However,
Melbourne Storm Shutter Installers Provider Name Locked
and his crew also offer to deploy prior to a storm for a reasonable fee.
We had one hiccup where we had an electrical wire loop over next to a window where it was not suppose to be (the original builders mistake). One of drillings for the anchors on that window caught the wire and shorted out the circuit.
Melbourne Storm Shutter Installers Provider Name Locked
called out an electrician that safely repaired the loop and moved to a position away from the window to meet code. Electricity was safely restored to the circuit in a couple of hours. The hole in our sheet rock was repaired and painted by the next morning. You cannot tell there was ever a hole in the spot.
We have all stainless steel anchors, frames and hole covers for the screens. We feel very secure now in protecting our home should a hurricane strike the Galveston/Houston area while we live here.
