I have two young babies (2.5 years and 6 months old). Acorn Home Improvements removed old windows and installed new windows. They were responsive via email and phone, incredibly professional, punctual, they moved the furniture, installed the windows and cleaned up! I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who is looking for quality, professional service for an amazing price!

We went with Acorn because our representative Mike was knowledgeable, thorough and reasonable with the cost of the insulation work. When the work was being done ,the crew was great and made sure the areas were clean once they were complete. I'll be sure to recommend them and use them for any future work.

Glad you were happy with the work that NW & his crew did for you. Once the weather gets colder, you'll really see the big difference in the comfort level in your home. The air-sealing & insulation work will reduce the negative pressure in the house, making it much less drafty, more comfortable & save you lots of $$$! Looking forward to hearing back from you in a few years when it's time to replace...

Acorn Home Improvements,Inc. did work on my elderly mother's home. The house needed new windows. The old ones were drafty and were hard to open. In addition to replacing the windows, we decided to have additional insulation installed in the attic. Both crews, one for the windows and the other for the insulation, were professional, polite, on time and did a great job cleaning up after themselves. I...

Salesperson did not properly explain that cellulose insulation still requires the use of fiberglass insulation, which I had explicitly said I didn't want. Also the cellulose prevents the installation of boards to use the attic as storage, which I was clear that I would be doing. The crew also left small pieces of fiberglass all over my lawn that my 6-month old puppy could get to and get injured fr...

Sorry to see that after speaking with our rep on site & our office receiving the signed Homeowners Satisfaction Checklist, that you still felt your experience was not a positive one. Upon review of your file, both the Quote submitted to you & the formal Contract, which you signed, both state that some fiberglass would be used around the perimeter of the flooring to prevent cellulose spillage.

The whole team is great. Mike was very helpful in assessing the problems and recommending the work to be done. Nate and TJ were very good at performing the work - professional and friendly! And Mary is helpful in coordinating everything from the office. Also, the price was very reasonable. Overall, I had a great experience with them.

Mike was very good at explaining the products he had to offer and going over the installation process. The head installer Joe and his assistant Israel were both top notch. They were polite, neat and most importantly to me, very professional. They introduced themselves and then got right to work. At the end of the job, Joe and I looked over the work together and then he refreshed my memory on the o...

The roofers did an incredible job. There was a lot of rotted boards so the crew chief went out twice to buy more. We decided to remove the 4 skylights in our ceilings. One leaked and really heated the house during the summer, one was in our bedroom (who puts a skylight in a bedroom anyway?). There were two others in our living room and we decided to take those out as well. The roofers took them al...

Acorn Home Improvement did an excellent job at my home. The siding repairs and window installations were handled very quickly and professionally. The company provided great customer service. I was well informed at every step of the project from the initial quote through the completion of the job. I will use Acorn again for future projects and recommend their work.
