Worked with Robert and Jim at Bruin. Everything was straightforward: description, estimate, and scheduling. The work was done on time without any issues. The replacement window is an improvment over the previous installation.

I had originally contacted Collegiate Windows after reviewing their Angie's list ratings and after getting a quote from a nationally advertised chain that was twice the price of Collegiate's. Phil Coleman (the owner) came out a couple of times before we signed a contract. His installer Doug came out to measure the windows and we agreed to a time and date for the installation. The day of the installation Doug called to say he would be about 20 minutes late (no big deal) and the installation began. I found both Doug and his helper to be professional and polite and the installation went well. I was going to remove the window treatments but Doug said they would do it (they replaced them too, which I wouldn't have expected) and they basically did their thing without much intrusion. We were not happy with the finish of the roof of the Bay Window, it was white metal and Doug immediately agreed to come back the next day to install shingles, which he did. My wife and I were very happy with the results. It is a bit early to comment on the end results (it has only been a few days) but I wouldn't hesitate to use Collegiate Windows again for additional window replacements.

The entire sales process through job execution went exceptionally well. I evaluated several other replacement window companies and the sales process for Morgan Exteriors was by far the best and the windows were the best value for the price. More importantly, the job itself went great. I am a picky person and I have no complaints. The installation team was very professional, courteous, and respectful of my property. While the double hung windows were a standard install, the bay windows were more complex and required framing custom roofs and residing a large portion of the house. The team clearly had a keen eye for detail and took pride in their work as the end result met all my expectations and looks great. Best of all my house is noticably more comfortable and there are no more drafts!

Jeff replaced 2 windows for me with Harvey vinyl replacement windows - an over-the-sink window and a bay window in my kitchen. He also replaced a roof over the bay window. Jeff was the first contractor I asked for an estimate on this project. I also had estimates from several other contractors. Jeff's was the most expensive estimate that I got. Jeff was always on time and would call ahead when he was on the way. He was straight forward about explaining the installation process and pricing. He promptly followed up with a written contract. My impression of him was of someone who is very competent. I also had estimates from several other contractors including Pella and Rite. Pella and Rite would not even take the job because of what they said was a problem to replace the metal flashing between the roof over the bay window and the brick wall exterior. I followed up with Jeff regarding that same point. He told me that it would likely not need replacing, but if need be, he would be able to replace the flashing. Turned out that it did need replacing and the work was done without a hitch. I especially appreciated that Jeff would answer all my emails and did it promptly. It took about a month and a half from the day I signed the contract to the actual installation. The work was scheduled about a week in advance, though due to weather, it had to be postponed for a couple of days. The day of the job, Jeff called ahead prior to showing up and he was exactly on time, again much appreciated. The job took 2 days (day and a half in total), which was what Jeff estimated. Ninety percent was done the first day - the windows were installed and it was a relief to see the quality and thoroughness of work right away. The work area was covered over with rags for protection and afterwards left in pristine state; I did not have to clean anything. The windows look great and I am very satisfied with how the job went. I would definitely recommend Jeff.

It was a hard sell, without a chance to do any comparison. The installers were very professional and quick. The windows are great and keep the house much warmer. I would suggest getting quotes from local contractors to install windows and price up replacement windows before contacting Anderson. They talk about $50 off each window, but if you don't have a sense of what the cost is at the outset, then you can't tell whether you're getting a deal or not. That was my mistake.

Everything from the initial consultation to completiion went off without a hitch. The salesman, Lou Chalifour, was very professional and courteous. The estimate was reasonable and fair. There were no hidden charges. There was no high pressure tactics, and he was willing to give me options, that I thought were beyond my reach. The installation crew did a wonderful job. They were professional, and willing to answer any questions I had. They cleaned up, so I was not left with any kind of mess. Lou Chalifour followed up and was on site at the completion of the job so he could inspect everything with me to be sure I was happy with the completed work. I would definately recommend Morgan Exteriors.

We're extremely happy with the work we got from C&D Window. We first dealt with Rite Window and figured we wouldn't get a better price on double-hung windows, but their price for the bay window was OUTRAGEOUS. We decided to call C&D to get a price for just the bay window (figuring we'd use Rite Window for the double-hungs) and were pleasantly surprised after meeting with their salesman and owner, Bruce. The price he quoted was cheaper than Rite Window for both the bay and other windows -- by a very wide margin. Our installer, Al, was extremely professional and you could tell he takes a lot of pride in his work. I've never had a contractor in the house who is neater and cleans up after himself better. Al was incredibly polite and always called ahead to let us know when he was going to come. There were a couple of times where he was supposed to come but couldn't, but we always got a phone call and greatly appreciated the heads up. Al did a fantastic job on the windows both inside and out. We're thrilled with the amount of curb appeal the windows have added in addition to the energy savings we're already seeing. I'd highly recommend C&D Window.

I had the most amazing experience with this company. They responded almost immediately by email, and shortly after, Paul their rep, called me by phone. Paul was punctual for our appointment and almost immediately inquired how old the window to be replaced was. Even though I told him the windows were at least ten years old and I no longer had any paper work, Paul insisted and made several phone calls and found out my window was under warranty. This saved me $5,000. Paul could of easily just did the job with out questioning the windows warranty, but due to his honesty and diligence he saved me a tremendous amount of money. It is worth noting that previous window companies took a look at my window and did not mention the age, Paul was the only one to do so.

Good experience despite job being rescheduled multiple times. Very thorough in their presentation as well as their job performance. Everyone was very pleasant, courteous, and accommodating. Would recommend them for future home improvements.
Recent Review: This was the most expensive and complex job I've done to my house in the 25 years I've owned it and Beantown did a fantastic job. They came when they said they would and finished their work once they started. Beantown exceeds all expectations, I would hire them again without reservations. They are one of the best, if not the best contractor in the area.
Recent Review: From start to finish the project went without a hitch. I was kept apparaised of the details of the project before and during the window replacement. The crew was professional, friendly and very helpful and the work they did was awsome. They ran into many unexpected problems and handled them like there was no problem at all. I would definitely hire them again.
Recent Review: We got a quote from another company too and ended up using them. For the work they were quoting, it was a good quote but we felt that the work they were suggesting was not necessary. We wanted to replace windows and they were talking about re-doing the entire framing. We had a couple of other people to get second opinions and they asked us only to replace the windows. So we did not need that extra service as it was unnecessary.
Recent Review: Our experience was very similar to that of other Zen customers. Matt is remarkably responsive, professional, and straightforward. His crew came at exactly the time they promised, did excellent work, thoroughly cleaned-up after they finished, and Matt came by to inspect the job as it concluded. Could not have asked for a better all-around experience. Highly recommended.

Recent Review: We had used Rite Window last year for our vacation home and were happy with the results. Recently I noticed some rot near the base of our living room bay window. I called the service rep we had worked with previously and he quickly identified the cause of the rot. The roof of the bay had been leaking and flowing down to the base. Unfortunately, fixing it required an all new window. The installers Mike and Carl did a fantastic job! The window looks nearly the same as our previous, "but with no leak"! Thumbs up job!
