Reviews in San Antonio to Install Bay Window

CTorvick Enterprises
I had used Stan Torvik to perform some minor work at my house twice in the last couple of years and was very happy with the results.  In Aug 2012,  I called Stan to replace a large bay window that was broken during a break-in.  Stan assigned my work to his project manager, Cody. This was the first time he had passed off any work, so I just assumed he was busy.  Cody responded quickly with a visit to start the estimate and even covered the window with plywood.  The estimate for the window was reasonable and required custom ordering.  I also had them install some safety bars in the bathroom (which I purchased). I had a very difficult time in communicating with Cody and had to contact Stan directly several times to even get a response.  Cody would not reply to emails, texts, or phone calls for several days, if at all. It took about 2 weeks longer than estimated time to schedule them to return to my house, but only took 1.5 days to finish.  I was very happy with the quality of the workmanship. Once I finally got all the work finished, I asked Cody to work up an estimate to do additional work (front door replacement).  That was the last I ever heard from them.  I was really disappointed in the customer service because I had been so happy with Stan in the past.

I can't say that the process was seamless, but I doubt that anything ever is. We originally had Southwest Exteriors come to our house to give us an estimate for their vinyl Provia windows. We soon realized that most replacement windows have a larger frame than original windows. We were very concerned about losing the view onto the greenbelt behind our house. We especially were concerned about the five 15" windows in our kitchen, which formed a bay window. We wanted to lose the least amount of visibility possible. The salesman suggested the Marvin fiberglass windows because they have one of the smallest frames on the market for replacement windows. Even after we signed our contract, several issues came up. The manufacturer couldn't make 70/30 double hung windows that we wanted. We ended up agreeing to get 50/50 double hung windows. We had 3 windows in our living room that were approximately 3' x 7'. The manufacturer couldn't make double hung windows there unless we had a transom with a smaller window. We ended up making those picture windows to avoid having the transom. The manufacturer wouldn't make some transom windows that we did have with grills the same way that ours were. We ended up asking for no grills on any of the windows. The manufacturer wouldn't make the transom window the size that we needed over our front door. We ended up getting an upgraded model transom window for the front door that the manufacturer did make with a wood frame on the inside. This may sound like a lot of issues, but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. When the original contract could not be fulfilled and we started to make adjustments, we ended up with a better looking project. We bought dual color windows (pebble gray on the outside that matches our brick and trim almost perfectly, white on the inside). The picture windows are FANTASTIC. I really don't notice the difference between the 70/30 and the 50/50 windows. The wooden frame on the window over the front door blends in so much BETTER with our door. Removing all the grids made our windows so much nicer. Throughout the process, the Southwest Exterior staff were in communication with us and accommodated the changes with minimal increase in cost from the original contract. Pros: Great communication Very Professional and helpful - every single person whom we came in contact with from the scheduler, the salesman, the installers, to the project manager Responsive to emails and calls On time Installed the windows with a minimum of mess and always cleaned up before leaving and as they went Will help with moving heavy furniture for no additional charge - some companies do charge I truly believe that Southwest Exteriors will stand behind their product and their installation and fix anything that isn't right or that goes wrong later. Cons: They are expensive (but so was every other company we called :( This is a company that I would hire again in a heartbeat. In fact, we plan to call them about garage floor coatings soon.

Matt Bomba came to give me a presentation and an estimate to replace some windows. He brought samples to demonstrate. He did inform me the bay window was special order and would take 1 month to arrive which was right on time. The time on installation day was 9:00a and they arrived at 9:30. I was impressed with the fact they brought their own vacuum cleaner to clean up the mess.

We purchased the windows from Lowe's through a salesperson Vince.  He came to the house, explained the products, the process, etc.  We were very happy with what we heard and the price as well - we have shopped at Lowe's for years, and Vince was very personable and straightforward.  The installation was performed by a subcontractor, and Vince told us all of their contractors have worked extensively with Lowe's and were very good. The installation was to take two days or three, depending on how long it took to install the large double sliding door.  The first and second days went very well, and most of the regular windows got installed. The afternoon of the second day and the third day, they installed the two sliders. There were two bay windows left (which are made up of three and four separate windows separated by a vinyl strip in between). Well, turned out they couldn't install the bay windows because the separator strips that were ordered were wrong size.  It would take two weeks to get them in.  So three weeks goes by and the installer called to say the strips were in - he proposed doing it in two weeks because he was busy with other jobs.  We said that was too long, so he worked it in the next week. As he got one bay window done and moved on to the other, he realized that the reordered strips were also the wrong size.  So a new order had to be placed, it took three weeks for them to come in, and again he was busy and wanted to wait several weeks to finish the install.  He managed to get back within two weeks, got the windows and strips installed, but we had to leave in the middle of this. When we got home and he was gone, we realized that he had not re-trimmed out the bay windows with new cedar trim but used the old wood that was partially rotted. He also left nail heads exposed, etc. We called Lowe's, and Vince came out to the house (mind you we are now several months into a project that was supposed to take two or three days). He agreed that the job was poorly done and called the installer. The installer came back, redid the trim work and was beginning to caulk the trim and the windows when it started to rain. He said he would call us that night to reschedule a time to finish since he couldn't caulk in the rain. He never called back, and several calls to him went unanswered.  Because I had to get the trim work painted, I finished the caulking and filled in the nail holes myself. Through all of this, one of the other issues was that the lockset for the double slider sticks when you lock it, and one handle on the outside was peeling paint. When Vince came out to check out the problems with the trim, he agreed the lockset needed replacing. He said he would order it and the store would call when it came in. I waited about three weeks, then started calling the install dept at the store. I talked to several different people each time who said they would check on it and get back to me. Except for one exception, they did not call me back, so I had to keep calling. It seemed no one would take responsibility to get this taken care of. Finally, a man told me that they had ordered the wrong lockset, it had to be reordered, and they would call when it got to the store. After three weeks, I started calling again, and again went through the whole process of trying to track this down. Finally they said it had been reordered again and would be delivered to our house. It finally came (mind you this is now the end of August, four months later), and it included just the outside handle plus two additional outside handles with locks in them that did not go to our door. They did not send any replacement for the inside lock set mechanism as promised.  I sent a complaint email to the Lowe's website complaint dept, who just sent it on to the store, who did contact me but basically had no resolution to this. The manager was very apologetic, and he assured me, as several other stall had, that our's was an unusual case and these installs generally go very smoothly. So I am not sure what was so unusual about our install, except for the big double slider, although the two bay windows were actually the biggest issue.  Regardless, what is interesting to me is that no one from Lowe's came out to check on the install job (until much later when things were going very wrong and at our insistence), no one did a "punch list" to finalize the job and make sure everything was ok, no one gave us any warranty information, instructions, etc. for the windows.  So I just hope that these windows hold up for awhile and we don't have problems with them. I also hope the sticking lock set on the big slider doesn't give out, because I can't see these people fixing it in any timely way. The other thing that is interesting to me is that our neighborhood is made up of houses built in the early 70's, and people are moving in and redoing these houses because it is a good area. Most of the houses still have those old single aluminum windows that need to be replaced. During the install, no less than fifteen different neighbors asked us who was doing the install and how it was going. We reserved judgment as the job wasn't finished, but as the time went by, we have been very clear with anyone who asks, don't go down this road with Lowe's - it's not worth it. My sense from dealing with the store and then the corporate complaint dept is that the company is just too big, the communication is terrible, no one is accountable, and they don't have a good handle on their subcontractors. And once the initial install is done, they are moving on, and you are chasing your tail. And that's too bad because I have always been a fan, and we still have two bathrooms and a kitchen to redo, so I guess that work will certainly go someplace else as well. I do have to say that we are basically happy with the windows, and the price was very competitive. From what I can tell, the Reliabuilt double pane window is a quality product and more than adequate for our temperate climate.

We have had Anderson replace windows in our entire house over four sections. They were very professional. The sale and installation went very well. Scott and Nick installed our last section and we were very pleased with their job performance. The windows are very high quality. I would recommend them to anyone who needs new windows.

Brian Moore, his main man, Marcus, and Phillipe and Desmond, were consummate professionals. They arrived daily at 9am and were careful to protect the interior and exterior of my home while working. At the end of each work day they cleaned up. Thirty windows were replaced and the finished product was totally beautiful.

I live in a mid-1960s home near the SA Airport that had the original single pane windows in them. Our bedroom windows would rattle whenever a plane was landing or taking off. Additionally, our AC and heating bills were high because we were losing cooled air and heat during the summer and winter months. Now, we have double-paned windows that keep the outside heat outside (where it belongs) and the cool AC air inside; beautiful, clear windows (with the bay window as the centerpiece) that also filters out harmful sun rays; and a new updated look to our home that has terrific curb appeal. I could not have asked for better!

We were thrilled with every aspect of the process. From the time the sales rep came to give us an estimate to the last window being cleaned after installation was pretty much flawless. All the employees and contractors associated with this project were very professional, courteous and a delight to be around. And, we are THRILLED with our new windows!

Recent Review: Justin came to my home to take measurements for estimate.  He was very thorough in explaining his product and procedures.  He provided a very thorough and understandable quote via email in a timely manner.  Main reason for not going with Window Experts was price.

Recent Review: Extremely well!  From the time the owner came to visit and show us the windows to the time that the work was completed the whole process was smooth and  easy. The owner was very knowledgable about the type  of windows we were getting and the amoutn of savings we could see.   The workers were right on time and finished when they  said they would. They were very neat and particular that everything be done right. They left our house clean and even vacuumed the areas where they worked.  They were very nice and concerned that the job be done right We even had an issue with one of the original windows and they repaired that immediately upon notifying them.  Everything was done to our satifaction. I would definitely recommend them to folks interested in getting this type of work done.

Recent Review: From the moment the salesperson (Brandon) came out to the house to the installation and cleanup (Jeff and Matt) we've been nothing but extremely happy and quite impressed with their professionalism and the quality of their work. The communication between sales and installation was also top notch. It's all the little things-- sending us a checklist to prepare the rooms for the installation, stopping and discussing things if they felt things may not be PERFECT (though it looked great to us, but it appears they have higher expectations of perfection). When we received a notice from the city about a permit to install our new windows, they also sent a notification that the inspector would also be looking at MN state building code requiring smoke alarms in each bedroom and a carbon monoxide detector at least 10 feet from each bedroom. This was surprise to us, but Jeff and Matt (installers) told us not to worry that they also have those covered! Such a nice surprise! But typical of what we experienced throughout this whole process. As a home owner, it's not fun having to spend lots of money replacing windows (it's feels like a have to rather than a want to, like a new kitchen). But seeing the beautiful results, I have to admit it was really worth it!
