I received several estimates for replacement windows and conducted a lot of my own research on the quality and workmanship of not only the companies from whom I received estimates but also on the windows that each company provides. The replacement windows provided by
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
were competitive in quality,
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
' price for the windows and the labor far exceeded its competitors. The work crew who performed the work were friendly, knowledgeable, experienced and sensitive to my needs. They performed the work quickly yet with high quality. I was very impressed with their overall work. I am very pleased with the quality of the windows (Grandura) and the workmanship from the installation. Additionally,
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
, the salesman who provided my estimate was patient with all of my questions, always responding promptly and was not a high pressure sales person. I have already referred
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
to one friend and will continue to refer additional friends and family to
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
for their exterior and painting needs.

Excellent service.
Most competitive proposal. Fair price. No high pressure sales.
Window Specialists made an initial recommendation beyond the
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
to cover the wood boards between our porch windows to save future painting. They custom made the aluminum coverings on site and they look great.
Windows arrived earlier then expected.
Crew was punctual, pleasant to converse with and very hard working - worked non-stop without taking a lunch break. They finished our job in two days. They bring a work shop in their van and custom make the indoor window frames.
Extremely clean - starting with carpet protection. Vacuumed debris as it was created, made care not to damage or soil home items, etc. Treated home as if it were their own.
Identified and helped resolve a problem they discovered while installing the windows (and which had nothing to do with the windows) - a rotted door pediment. Saved us future expenses.
Assisted in quickly resolving a
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
and fixable manufacturer's defect (shavings prevented one window pin from fully retracting).
Trustworthy. Highly recommend you give them a
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
to make a proposal when purchasing windows.
Note: cost not provided (confidential) but least of all proposals.

After getting 3 different bids from the other window companies, we decided to go with
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
who had the best price which included the triple pane windows. Our sales representative was very helpful and knowledgeable on any questions we had and explained thoroughly. They had came out to measure the windows within a week. Once the windows were ready for installation, we were scheduled a few days later and they were done in one day. The installation crew were on time and got to work right away. They were very polite and had got the windows done a little over 4 hours from start to finish. The whole process with this company was a breeze and we highly recommend them.

Best work I have had done on my house to date! The installers from
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
were the utmost professionals and paid great attention to detail. The word took three days to remove all the windows and install the new ones. The installers were very respectful of my property and cleaned up every day. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

IT WENT PERFECTLY!!!! Well,
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
was the supervisor assigned to me. We went over the details of what I wanted, he gave valuable advice, and explained methods of payment, and schedule of payment.
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
then gathered his team together (outsourcing), and they came in at the times that were basically convenient to me. They worked quickly and efficiently, asked me if I had any questions WHILE they worked, pointed out things that had to be repaired (that saved me lots of trouble later on). VERY IMPORTANT---THEY DID NOT DO ANYTHING EXTRA WITHOUT ASKING ME FIRST! This means NO LAST MINUTE, SURPRISE CHARGES! The workforce would call me ahead of time to make certain I was home BEFORE coming over, and arrived on time. Some difficulty occurred with the cabinets, and the hinges. They came back and stayed with it until all was corrected. And if I found something wrong after the fact, men were assigned to return to refit what had to be done. Now, in the event they could not show up for whatever reason (an emergency, etc), I was telephoned immediately and informed, so there would be no unnecessary waiting by me. The results? A 1956 retro kitchen with warn out wood, outdated
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
, and outdated (but still fairly good) oven was transformed into a modest, but modern 21st Century kitchen...and up to code. Very important-when you call and leave a message, SOMEONE ALWAYS GETS BACK TO YOU (usually the boss himself!) I would MOST DEFINATELY recommend
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
to anyone without the slightest hesitation. Good workers, skilled craftsmen, honest, and most importantly NOT SOME CHAIN STORE ENTERPRISE, BUT A LOCAL, NEIGHBORHOOD ESTABLISHMENT! Indeed, if you want a first class job done when it comes to your home, I strongly urge you to check out
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
first.

The job took 4.5 days and went smoothly. The two installers were nice guys and the house was kept clean and the outside cleaned up at the end of each work day. I went with the
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
windows rather than the Milgard windows, due to the lower price and the transferable warranty. The new
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
windows operate smoothly and look great.
I was stupid enough to apply for a permit from the City of Woodinville, despite the three contractors I got bids from telling me I didn't need a permit. The City said otherwise so I applied and then it took 2 months of jumping through ever changing hoops to get them to issue the permit. For my $500+ dollars I got to say that I approved of the work done by the contractor while the City does not approve. This did cause me to research the art of replacing windows more than I had planned to.
Had the City been more forthcoming they would have said that the only way they approve a window replacement is if the siding around the window is removed at the same time, and new paper applied around the window. This is not how these jobs are normally done, and would further compromise the water
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
of the house unless all the siding and all of the underlying paper was redone. Meanwhile there are three ways that windows are normally replaced: 1) a cut out and replace with nail fin job, such as
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
does, and which is generally considered the best way (but the water seal of the house is now more dependent on the caulking around the window than with the original window is); 2) a screw and glue job where the old window is removed from the inside (very much compromising the exterior water
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
with no remediation possible) and the new window is attached via screws around the window frame (instead of using the nail fin), and 3) a stucco window installed inside the existing window frame (which looks odd and reduces the size of the existing window, and which nobody bid).
What impressed me most about
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
the most was that they never told me what an idiot I was for contacting the City. They just did their best to work with the City (they said some other cities in the area such as
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
,
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
, and
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
do require permits and they do know how replacement windows are installed, and what constitutes a correct installation). So they worked with the inspector and called in the inspection and then dealt with the inspector as best as possible given his unrealistic demands.
Another thing I liked about
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
was that when I checked their L&I numbers they clearly carry workman's comp and unemployment insurance for their employees, which did not appear to be the case with all of the companies I got bids from.

I gave
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
a grade of C, mostly due to my overall frustration with this process and my perception of communications.. I felt is was not fair to give the anger-based D grade that I hovered over.. So, on to my review…
I looked for several businesses in town that could do the work for me. While cost was a factor, so was speed. My roof had begun to leak and I needed it repaired. Long story...less long....while the quote for
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
was about $4000 higher than the closest other bids, I decided to go with them based upon the fact I was assured they could start the work in about 2 week rather than a 4-6 weeks from the others. Also, I felt going with a more established company that offered same as cash financing was a plus.
ROOFING
Work did start on the roof on time. In fact, due to the fact another project they were working on was cancelled, they were able to send 2 crews to my home and complete the removal and install of the new roof on the same day. They also removed the chimney to below my roofline and installed a new vent that was routed through the chimney. Regarding the speed in which this was done, I have no issues and would give that a grade of A, however, I do think it was typical that it was done that quickly and was more attributed to the other project being put on hold. If that was all I had done, I would have given A's and B's. The B's would be really for the pricing and quality.
Quality wise, the new vent that was installed was noticeably tilted and the drip
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
that was put around the roof was kinda beat up. In fact, i had to request that a few be corrected and got a bit of an eye roll from the crew lead when I asked about this. I am still waiting on the new chimney vent to be corrected.
Also, when the old gutters were removed and the new roof was put on, a gap in the soffit was made wider. I had mentioned that birds were getting into this area of the roof section and expected this to be corrected. It was not and birds started making their nest once again. When I called and pointed this out, a person was sent over to fix it by screwing a strip of metal over part of the opening. However, the entire hole was not covered. I am still awaiting that to be repaired.
The clean up around the house was pretty good. I did go around after the crew left and found 6 nails in the driveway and about the same around on the sidewalk and patio. I kinda expected that, but would have been much more pleased to find none.
GUTTERS
The gutters took a couple of weeks to get installed. I was told this would happen since I was getting seamless gutters that kept leaves out. Since it is easier to set up the forming machine and do several jobs at the same time, I understood I would need to wait. When the gutters were installed, they looked great. My initial frustration I had with that was due to the heavy rains we had while I was waiting (it happens) and that I again found several nails in the driveway as well as some metal waste from the cutting tool. The more bothersome issue was with regards to the invoice. After I got the first invoice, I mentioned it to the supervisor and he said not to worry about, he will let them know it was part of the package. After getting two more, I called the company and told them it was part of the package deal. I got the forth invoice with red
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
on it telling me to send in the money. This is after I had already paid for the entire project. Obviously their communications are an issue when dealing with the different divisions.
GABLE VENTS
To date, I am still waiting on this to be completed. Once again...Long Story...Less Long, I have been waiting for over 2 1/2 months to get these installed. This has been the most frustrating part of the process...especially since I have already paid in full for the work to be done. I did this in good faith since I was told that would be done right after the roofing was done. I have been told several times they thought this was done. I have made a lot of calls and texts. About half have gone unreturned until I get a bit forceful on the subject. While I can appreciate the short season we have and that sometimes projects get delayed, what I cannot understand is the failures in simply letting me know what is going on. In fact, I had stayed home 1 day to meet with staff to get this done, only to have no one show up.
OVERALL
This project started over 3 months ago and is still not completed. I was called today and told this will be done next week. I am hoping this is true.
In general, I think the work is good, but a bit overpriced. In my opinion, communication is a major issue, not only with the customer, but within the company. While things happen with construction projects, the importance of keeping the customer informed cannot be undervalued. Recently, I uncharacteristically left a profanity laden tirade on the supervisor’s phone for his lack of communications. While I did later apologized for the profanity, I did note my level of frustration and my desire go get this job completed were real and needed to be addressed. I am hoping the promise to get this finished next week comes true. My final advice, I foolishly signed off on the
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
getting fully payment from the finance company prior to the work being done. While admittedly, the remaining issues are minor issues in relation to the overall project, it still needed to be done. Waiting for over 2 months for this is not right, especially since the internal communications were not good at the company. I wonder if I did not stay on this, if it would ever be done. I felt my bargaining chips were gone. Being a “Good Guy” came back to bite me.

We had 20 old wood windows replaced with vinyl replacement windows. AHC had the lowest bid of companies contacted and their windows matched or exceeded the specs of the other companies. Very professional staff that not only covered their products and services but also offered suggestions to reduce purchase costs. Once contract was signed, windows were ordered and arrived within the timeframe identified by AHC. On day of install, the installers came and left in time indicated. They worked fast and hard. Workmanship was great. The whole process was fast and easy. I would definitely recommend them to others and would use again if needed.

Our residence is about 12 years old and the double paned windows originally installed in the house had become "foggy" throughout. After weighing whether we would repair, or replace these windows, we decided on
Biddeford Window Installers Provider Name Locked
Company based on feedback from their customers on Angie's List. They promptly showed up when scheduled, and completed the work on time for the cost agreed upon. The installers were courteous, professional, and cleaned up thoroughly after the job was completed.
