"We had a massive job -- and knew we had to spend to get our home right. We interviewed
and 3 other vendors. We didn't go with the cheapest" because we wanted someone with an excellent reputation and a provable track record and we wanted the best products we could afford. We have a brand new roof (old roof removed and replaced); new windows; new siding, and new leaders and gutters on our house and garage.
is an excellent company with top notch professionals in all phases of work.
knew his products and was helpful with unexpected details. The on-site workforce (managers and workmen alike) were just absolutely awesome craftsmen: on time and efficient; thorough and business like; neat and meticulous. We are thrilled with the results!

"It went exceptionally well, in spite of problems being discovered along the way in this old house. The salesman apparently did not realize the complexity of a couple" of the jobs and has quoted a certain price without realizing how complex the project was on two of the windows. We went into contract with
based on whatever they said was the price. Later, when they realized how difficult the project was and how much more work was involved, they still did what they had to do and we split the cost with them for the extra work necessary, by way of fair play to both the parties. Their workers are highly skilled, very professional, courteous and clean in all that they did. Their painting team did a most excellent job of finishing up all the painting necessary to make the house totally presentable again. All the debris was hauled away. All the work was done to our satisfaction. This is one of the best businesses with whom we have ever dealt, in any context. They are a pricey company, but their work is so good and they give so much service that they are entirely worth hiring.

Window restoration & repair

When window replacement isn't an option due to cost or preservation concerns, repairing or restoring your home's windows can return them to their former glory.

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.

 

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.

was very prompt on coming out for an estimate, and had a quote to us within 24 hours. After we agreed to the quote, the
Genoa Window Installers Provider Name Locked
came out for precise measurements. It took about a week for the windows to be made (11 in all). The
Genoa Window Installers Provider Name Locked
came out and installed the windows in about 5 hours. Unfortunately, one of the windows was damaged before installation, so they had to return three days later to install the final window. I was extremely pleased with their work, and would definitely recommend C&G to anyone looking to have windows replaced.

Very reasonable on price compared to all the quotes I received. First and foremost they are always on time and fast while not sacrificing quality. I would highly recommend them if you need windows or doors.

The salesman was great however when it came time for installation, the door was not at all done the way we had thought it would be done. (installer said it could not be done the way we had discussed with the salesman) Installation took a lot longer than even they anticipated and a part had to be ordered as the installer cut a piece too short. Anyway it took over a month to finally get the installation finished from the time it was started. Seems like a long time from when the windows come in until they are even able to schedule an installation. Their work was good and I assume we will not have any trouble with them. Since it is a sun porch and it was not completed until the end of

We were told we'd receive an estimate within 48 hours, but nothing ever came. Several weeks later the salesperson called to ask if we'd gotten the estimate and I told him no. I reconfirmed my email address and he said he would re-send it. I told him to definitely follow up by phone if he didn't hear back from me, as we were ready to move forward on the project quickly. Again, I never received the estimate or a follow-up call. I even emailed the company through their website to see if there had been a miscommunication, but no one ever responded. I'm frankly baffled by the lack of follow-through and wish I could write it off as a misunderstanding, but given how many paths I took to try to get an estimate I'm giving up on using this company.

The experience with
Genoa Window Installers Provider Name Locked
was great. The salesperson was courteous and not pushy at all. He helped me decide the best fit for our house and gave alternative options when I originally found the price to be a little high. The installers were able to get our windows installed in less than one day. They were very nice, and so, so clean. The paint on the trim was not chipped at all. In fact, besides the new windows, you couldn't even tell that they had been there! I have many more windows to replace in my house, and will not hesitate to use

again.

Genoa Window Installers Provider Name Locked
came and sold his company well. There was a little pressure, but he knew when to stop. His sales pitch focused on his attention to detail and the quality I would get from his company. The work was completed 6-8 weeks after the quote and agreement was made. This seemed a little long to me, but was acceptable. The work began on a Monday and the workers were finished by Wednesday. On Monday I noticed some items, discussed during the quote\agreement, that were different. There were to be no eave vents and holes, previously drilled by insulation installers, were to be filled. I contacted
Genoa Window Installers Provider Name Locked
and he gently talked me into not removing the eave vents. Detail # 1 missed. I also spoke to him about the holes. I do not know if they were filled or merely covered over with the green water
Genoa Window Installers Provider Name Locked
as I was unable to witness the
Genoa Window Installers Provider Name Locked
material going up. Detail #2 missed. After the work was completed I noticed that a gutter had been damaged and repaired on site by the workers. This was visible from the road and could possibly one day leak so I talked with
Genoa Window Installers Provider Name Locked
. Detail #3 missed. He did have a crew out within a week to replace it which was good.
Genoa Window Installers Provider Name Locked
had the attention to detail, but it did not completely translate to his crew. The work they performed is very nice and they are very good at their craft. Even with the missed details
Genoa Window Installers Provider Name Locked
work was very good. Now that the caulk has dried and winter has set in I am noticing places where the caulk was not installed correct. I will be calling
Genoa Window Installers Provider Name Locked
to address these concerns. Despite these small things I would use them again.
In regards to the price -
Genoa Window Installers Provider Name Locked
was 2-3K above other quotes we had received. I went with
Genoa Window Installers Provider Name Locked
due to the attention to detail and service after installation I would receive. They came through on the gutter. I hope the company continues to stand behind their work.
