the estimates and suggested repair was clearly described and options offered. the work was outstanding from planning, to removal, to replacement, to clean up. we are very pleased with the quality of the replacement windows and the rapid completion of the overall work.

Most of the work was satisfactory. However the installer failed to properly install the bay window. As a result, I didn't go forward with the last phase of the project with this company.

Fantastic experience! From the salesman who took the time to explain the different replacement window options, to the professional and courteous installer who was happy to answer my questions, I could not be happier with the whole process. Highly recommend this company and would use them again.

House is 25 years old with the original windows. Decided on the Fiberex constructed window after researching other wood replacement windows. Renewal by Anderson Salesperson (Ken Norris) very responsive and professional, installation was scheduled after approx six weeks from date of order. Installation completed in one day (10 hr day) by three outstanding installers lead by Edwin. Extremely professional team - dropclothes used throughout and great care taken to leave the worksite completely clean.

Had our windows installed two years ago and since then we have had great reduction of energy bill. Install crew was very professional. I pointed out issues I had with the wood on our bay windows and they went above and beyond to wrap the windows and fix the wood rot for me. I would highly recommend using this company.

AUnicorp Home Energy Services
Our experience with Unicorp was superb throughout! We originally were considering only having replacement windows done, but decided to replace our siding and gutters as well (we have written a separate review for the siding as well). . The president of Unicorp, Brian Weil, had come to our home to talk about their products and services. We were very impressed by how knowledgable he was, as well as the lack of a "hard sell." The great reviews on Angie's list also helped us make our decision. We did get another estimate, which was slightly lower, but we felt we'd get more personal attention from Unicorp-and we were right. Brian arranged for Mr. Materka, their long-time employee and master window installer to do the work if we were willing to wait a bit until he was available--I can tell you it was worth the wait. After we'd signed our contract, but before the work was done, Mr. Materka found that the windows in our sunroom (11 double hung and picture windows had been badly framed, with different sizes inside and out that would make it difficult to install replacement windows. Mr. Materka made and installed all new frames, then remeasured with the new frames, went to the factory to have the windows made, and was able to install them with no loss in time for completing the job. Not only that, Unicorp did not charge us extra for the considerable additional work, which was beautifully done. Amazing! Everyone from Megan (the scheduler) through the work crew were great. Communication was excellent, and the job started just when scheduled. We were so pleased that they finished a very large job (31 windows as well as the siding) in just over a week--even working over the weekend to get things done. The workmen were professional and cleaned up after themselves very well. When the job was finished, they went around with my husband, who saw a few small areas that were not quite to our satisfaction. They came back the next week to fix those areas, and Megan followed up to let us know when they would be out and again to be sure that we were satisfied with the final result. We were more than satisfied. Our Realtor neighbor was disappointed that we were getting vinyl replacement windows, as he felt they would look "cheap" in a high-end home. When were were finished with the job, he admitted the house looked great. I wish more home improvement companies were like Unicorp.

Alex Szopa visited and had a good set of insights into how to proceed. Prepared estimate. This was for a bay window in masonry, and as the work proceed considerable custom carpentry was required. Marvin windows were installed in the new custom frames. All very nicely down.
Recent Review: Excellent. Great recommendation by sales representative to replace bay window with clear glass and replace screens with True Screens - my view of the woods around my house is superb. Installers were very professional and were able to complete this big job in one day.
Recent Review: It was the first time that I had the windows in this house cleaned and they did a great job, were very professional and I will be calling them again. We have 2nd floor windows that are complicated and many many double hung windows and they were all spotless when they left. Kind of concerned that really clean windows make me so happy.
Recent Review: Doing business with Kelemer Brothers was a highly positive experience; one that I found to be unique and rare in any business. I recently bought a home and knew that I would have to replace an old and outdated bay window in the home. I got recommendations for window companies from my neighborhood Listserve and contacted one or two different companies. Kelemer Brothers was recommended to me by realtor, and so I knew they would be good, but I didn't realize how wonderful they would be. From that very first phone call, Joe Kelemer was helpful, personable and thoughtful. He made an effort to connect with me as a customer as well as an individual. He gave me things to consider when purchasing a window (types of materials, style of window etc.) even before I had agreed to do business with his company. When I met with him in person, he was very patient, kind and forthcoming with information. He gave me a realistic time frame and told me to give his proposal some time and thought before making a decision. I loved that he wasn’t pushy to “get the job” which I had experienced with other companies. He didn’t accept any money from me even when I signed the agreement to use his services. As promised, he delivered a beautiful bay window, which was expertly installed and changed the whole look and feel of my new home. Joe stopped by after the job was done to check in with me and ensure I was happy with the work. He even brought some beautiful roses, which he said he does for all customers after a job is complete, as a way to show that he appreciates the customer and their business. Wow! This attention to detail, good customer service and care for positive and strong customer relationships is truly rare and a welcomed breath of fresh air. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Thank you Kelemer Brothers for your amazing work and service.

Recent Review: I submitted an inquiry online about replacing my 3 bay windows and received a call about 5 minutes later. I explained to Scott that we already have other bids but I wanted to give him a shot based on his reviews. I measured the windows and took pictures of the windows to be replaced. He drew up a quote in about 5 min and e-mailed it to me. Hisbid was competitive, but unfortunately not as good as the deal I was getting from another bidding company. Even though I told him I was going with another provider, Scott was still kind enough to explain to me what the other company should be doing to achieve proper building code and to make sure that they do. Clearly he didn't have to do this but that's caring about your work and doing the right thing even when you aren't going to do the work. If other companies can follow his business model, the world would be a much better place. I wish him continued success in his business.
Recent Review: We got 3 price quotes. The most expensive was from Potomac View Energy but we chose them to do our job. Why? Chris is a window salesman and he is very good at selling windows. He had a kit with him and explained why their windows were the better choice. They are made locally, are more energy efficient, and the product is guaranteed for life. We made this decision in early July, and on Aug 30 our windows were put in. The install crew showed up on time (between 8-10). They did not leave any trash around. We had the amount of dust you would expect from a construction job. The windows are exactly what we wanted, and they are so clear sometimes I have to check and make sure there is glass (Hahaha)! Constructive critism: Some of our furniture was dragged across our hw floors. Fortunately the marks buffed out. We plan to use Potomac View Energy for future jobs.
Recent Review: Steve and his team are always incredibly professional. They show up when they say they will and leave behind a clean house and yard (not an easy task with window replacement). Whenever we have had any problems with the windows, Steve has been there right away to replace or repair the work....even though the windows were installed more than 10 years ago! I have referred a number of friends to Thermal Specialties and they have all been similarly pleased with the work.
Recent Review: Working with Dan from Window Universe Express and the folks at Alside was a great experience. I found Dan through his blog at thewindowdog.com while I was searching for information about replacement windows. Like most folks in this quest for info, I had never had windows replaced and was sticking to the name brands I had heard about for years, such as Anderson, Pella, etc. After getting a few quotes that I thought were on the rather high side, I wanted to read reviews from others who had gone through this recently. Dan's site gave me all the knowledge I was looking for as well as debunking many of the classic sales tactics that the big names will perform when visiting your home. I also learned about other brands of windows that are just as good if not better than the name brands and provide excellent value due to the lack of expensive advertising and paying sales people to come to your home. His site provided excellent info on what features you need, ones you may not and just a general great explanation of the different parts of windows and how they effect the comfort of your home. Dan was very responsive to all of my endless emails with questions and through the partnership with Alside, I was able to find an installer that he recommended, which is what everyone is ultimately looking for. The guys who did the install were great. They showed up on time, were very skilled and cleaned up perfectly. I never thought that the 30 year old bay window could look that good. I highly recommend using window universe express as your first and last stop for getting replacement windows.
Recent Review: Fantastic experience!
