Recent Review: First time employing Steve and would not hesitate to do so again. We initially got estimates from two other contractors for a couple of relatively modest exterior home repair jobs- replacing our rotting french door to our deck and repair of exterior wood trim that was peeling and/or rotting. As always, it was a constant battle trying to get the contractors to call back, show up, or respond in any manner. We are so glad we found Steve and Cornerstone Home Improvement. His responses were immediate, his followup totally professional, and the quality of his work and his work ethic unimpeachable. If you want someone to do what they say they are going to do, show up when they say they are going to show up, work with you in an intelligent manner to plan and strategize about the most appropriate repair method, and then execute the job in a clean and competent manner that sticks to the agreed budget then Steve is the guy for you. I have a hard time recommending him highly enough. Not sure why it took 25 years living here and working with idiots before we latched onto him.

Recent Review: They were very professional and punctual. Provided quality work and cleaned up after themselves. Also, they were not pushy at all when it came to price and sealing the deal.  Would definitely recommend them and use them again.

Recent Review: Neither the french doors nor the screen doors were  installed correctly and it took many calls to get the contractor to send out workmen for corrections. Some screen door parts had to be reordered because of the improper installation. They still aren't right,  but I am tired of dealing with this contractor.

Senterline Construction Co LLC
Recent Review: They did what they were supposed to do. They were very good. I was working with Senterline and another company was supposed to supply the door. The other company didn't call me and I got an estimate from Senterline but it was not for what I wanted. I called them back and they called the other company and got it straightened out immediately. They told me the other company would get in touch with me to order it but they haven't. Senterline was great.

Apple Hill Construction LLC
Recent Review: I cannot say enough about the wonderful service I received from Dan Delafield and his team. From the first telephone call through the entire process, Apple Hill was prompt, professional, and did outstanding work. Dan clearly knows what he is talking about and was able to guide us to make the appropriate choices for the work he was doing. He alerted us to problems and went above and beyond to ensure the work was completed in a timely manner and to his exacting standards. And unless we made changes or added projects, his contract price was the price we paid - absolutely no surprises. We  have worked with a lot of contractors over the years, but none of them have come close to Dan and his team. We are taking a break now, but Dan will be back to help us with future projects, including bathroom and flooring renovations. We can't imagine using anyone else. And if A+ was a rating, that's what Apple Hill Construction would receive.

APella Windows & Doors
The entire job went very well and I was pleased with the quality of the windows and doors. The installer was a subcontractor for Pella that specialized in window and door replacement. The installer was terrific and I have been very pleased with the quality of the installation. Subsequently, I had a few minor callback items. The Pella wholesaler was not very responsive. I called my salesman and he was terrific in getting the minor problems addressed.

Had to be done in 2 separate installs because the trapezoids came in from the factory in less than perfect condition so WW reordered them. The installing team was amazing both times: efficient, speedy, knowledgeable, thorough and NEAT. There was no evidence when they were done, other than the beautiful new windows, that they had been there. When the traps had to be reordered, WW sent a technician to remeasure just to be sure of size; installation went without a hitch. And the windows look great, inside and out._x000D_|_x000D_|Be aware that if you choose a woodgrain vinyl on the interior of your windows you will need to stain and poly a molding piece; WW does not do any painting/staining. However, if you ask, they will supply you with an estimated amount of linear molding so that you can test and match your interior stain and prestain and poly the product. They can then install the finished molding and the job is completely done. Trust me, it's the better way to go. I recommend Window World of Manchester CT to everyone interested in a good looking and highly functional replacement window at a reasonable price installed by a very professional team of experts. Well done, Anton and team!

AHighland Window Company LLC
I don't go forward on a project generally unless I have at least 3 bids from decent providers, and I'm glad I decided to get a couple extra bids this time around. The owner, Mr. Cowan, came for the initial quote. What set him apart from others who came to my home immediately was his "savvy" - he took some rough measurements on the spot, and seemed to understand what an installation entailed. It seemed like every other contractor representative who came through my door just wanted to open up a catalog and give me a price without actually looking at the job. I have a "challenging" home to work on, and I don't like surprise bills at the end of a job. That said, the price I was given was originally just for the french doors - it wasn't the highest price we had been given, nor was it the lowest (we had been given a basement-low price by a contractor who, on further investigation, had an extremely poor reputation). It did, however, include trimwork - something that was an additional charge from other providers. When Mr. Cowan returned again with his foreman to take specific measurements, we decided to ask them about the window as well - they worked with us on the spot, found out what we wanted, took measurements, gave us a price, and we were ready to go. We cut a deposit check, and just had to wait for the products to be built / shipped. We wound up having to reschedule the installation several times - mother nature seemed to always choose the day of our install to throw out a foot of snow, or record cold temperatures - but when the big day finally came for the install to begin I had 3 professional, friendly gentlemen in my driveway at 9am ready to work. The foreman was there, and went through the scope of the project with me, and they were all very careful of and concerned with the safety of my (very active) 18 month old daughter, taking extra care to clean up anything she might step on, close doors behind them, etc. Since the trim had been included in the price, I had largely assumed I would get whatever they felt like putting up and that would be the end of it, but was again surprised when they asked very specifically what I wanted, working with me to match the types of casings throughout my house. After the initial installation was done, I did a full walk-around inside and out to review everything that was done, took pictures with my phone of the defects I wasn't pleased with, and sent them to Marc in an e-mail. I had expected to have to fight with him to get one or two of the things fixed, but instead he called me back and said they would be back out the next morning to fix everything. Again, I expected that they would show up and fix one or two things, but was pleasantly surprised when they took every one of my concerns seriously and assessed each of them. Oh, and that trim that was built into the price? It came out excellent, with very nicely done miter joints, clean extension jams, an even reveal, and no complaints from me. Marc even followed up with a call later that day to make sure everything came out perfectly, and apologized for any inconvenience. He seems genuinely concerned with the quality of his work, and exhibited a lot of respect for my home. I feel comfortable saying that you would be hard pressed to get a better value than Highland Window. The quality you are getting, in addition to the excellent pricing, are certainly worth it. I have more projects to do in my home, and while I will still get my minimum 3 quotes on my next window project, another contractor will be hard pressed to get me to not choose Highland again. **A couple tech specifics that they tackled: - Shortening my french doors (my opening was slightly shorter than standard door height) - I checked all measurements after the job, including lengths, widths, and corner-to-corner on everything, and it's clean - Widening my door opening - The french doors were about an inch wider overall then my old rickety slider. They adjusted the opening without missing a beat. - Extension jams against my rather uneven walls - they came out flush, clean, and you'd never know everything wasn't flat. - Outside trim - accommodated my preferences on aesthetics. Made thicker trim on the bottom of the outside trim for the window, which (to me) ultimately looked nicer.
