The quote I received was for $36,456, which works out to be more than $1,700 per window--an absolutely ridiculous price, and I brought out a flyer from a competitor advertising replacements at $209 each to prove that. I was also told the $36,000+ price is actually a 'good deal' because Renewal by Anderson windows, the rep said, are of lesser quality and would cost me about $52,000. I was polite bu...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
After being approached by a salesperson in a local Walmart two representatives came to my home for a consultation and to provide me with an estimate for 21 new replacement windows.

Horrible! Worst experience I've ever had with a business. I wouldn't recommend this company to an enemy. They don't show up to appointments and don't call before or after to apologize. It's a wonder how they are still in business.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I was contacted by Applebys because my wife entered a contest they were running. They said they would come out for a free estimate and arranged a date. On the day of the appointment they cancelled two hours prior due to salesman car problems. We set another date for the following week and they no call no showed despite an email and call confirming the appointment. When I called to see what the problem was they said they would check with the salesman and call me back. They never called back and hung up on me when I checked an hour later. The following day I called and was told they would have a manager call me and give an explanation. That call never came either. They break appointments and lie. I was told three times that a manger would call me and I'm still waiting. What's amazing is they contacted me to give an estimate.

We were very clear on the phone with the person setting up the appointment we didn't have plans of buying windows when they came out, but were open to the consultation and estimate. The salesman started with the estimate and right off the bat told us that things we had done to help our old windows this winter "never work" which I found offensive and kind of rude.  He then went in to his whole pitc...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK

My wife and I for Christmas decided to finish the basement for our daughter who works TSA at the Philadelphia Airport.  We entered into a contract with Appleby Systems Inc. at 1520 Trolley Rd. York, PA 17408 (717)764-3000/(800)767-0235 on December 02, 2013 to finish our basement with the Appleby Basement system.  Our daughter lives in our basement that is half finished with a full bathroom, and ha...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We entered into a contract with Appleby Systems Inc. 1520 Trolley Rd. York, PA 17408 (717)764-3000/(800)767-0235 on December 02, 2013 to finish our basement with the Appleby Basement system.  Our daughter lives in our basement that is half finished with a full bathroom, and had been looking forward to having something really nice that would be apartment like and independent.  On December 02, 2013 Appleby Systems sent representative Kurt Borgmann to spec out the job and provide a price.  We only have $10,000 to finish the 450 square feet basement and told Kurt that from the beginning, he started out with $14,000 and we told him there was no way we could afford that and did not want to take out a loan.  He wrote $11,900 on his card and said, that was the lowest he could go. We told him thank you, but we will have to pass on it and my wife said she would be willing to go $11,000 tops and we take that out of the floor budget and do the floors ourselves.  He told us to wait and he needed to go out and talk to his boss John Killian.  He went outside for about 10 minutes and then came back and said, if we would pay cash by check and sign a contract tonight John Killian agreed that Appleby System would finish our basement.  We signed the contract and he said, we have nothing to worry about and that our basement should be finished in a couple of weeks before Christmas. He told us that Appleby stands by their contracts and we only have three business days to cancel this contract and Apple Systems only has 3 business days also to cancel the contract.  Kurt emphasized that this was a legal binding contract and if we were going to cancel we had do so in 3 days.  As part of the contract we paid by check $3666.67 and went over the entire contract with Kurt and he said, in a day or two the construction foreman Scott would come by do a pre-order inspection for job requirements and order the material.  On December 6, after 4 days we called Appleby Systems wondering when Scott was coming over and we were told he would be there on the following Monday.  No one came on Monday, so on December 11th I called Appleby Systems again and ask to speak with John Killian, the receptionist said, he would call me back. John called us back and said, that we needed to pay $15,000 for them to do our basement.  He said, he would send Scott Phillippi to check, but he was sure that we needed to pay $4,000 more.  On December 16, Scott came to our house and did the pre-order inspection, he told us he thought they could do it for $11,000 but that we would be getting a very good deal.  On the 16th of December John Killian called back and told me that there was no way they could do it for $11,000 they would only do it for $15,000 and he told me would you would not want us to do it for $11,000.  I told him I would talk to my wife and we would call the next day.  When my wife and I called him the next day he again stated that we needed to give them an additional $4,000 and he was willing to give a no interest loan.  We stated to him that we only have $11,000 to finish the basement, and that we were saving up money to put in a floor covering in the basement. We don't know what to do now, and believe this to be part of Appleby Systems high pressure sales scams.
