Number of Windows: 11Number Lineal Inches:
Brand: Feldco WindowsWindow Type: Double Hung
Installer: Feldco Windows
I have purchased our windows from feldco. Our experience at first was ok. The salesman was great. The windows looked nice. When the windows were installed I noticed that the installers did not insulate around the window, they just put window in opening and finished with caulk and trim. When I asked thre installer about it he said that the insulation was not needed with this type of installation. My neibors had the same windows, same company and the installers insulated there windows, the same old windows came out. Bottom line is the charged us 630 per window and refuse to redo install and insulate around our windows. I ended up hiring a handyman to remove indide trim and insulate, replace trim and recaulk inside of windows. this took 2.5 hours and cost me 25 per window more.

STAY AWAY FROM WINDOW WORLD!
We purchased 10 windows in April 2010 from the window world in granger indiana. At first we thought we were getting a great window at a great price. We were wrong. The windows if properly installed may be good, but the bad install makes our NEW windows very hard to open. They look good but are not user friendly. We can not get them to fix the bad installation. They say our house has settled and that's why our windows don't operate right. That's BS. Window World does not stand behind there windows or service. If you use this company make sure the windows are operating with ease before the installers finish.

I ordered windows in corect size. windows came 1/2 " too big.. Sent back with corrected size, error in ordering. Picked up second time, still incorrect. now they are 1 1/2 " too big. Store manager called in to rectify the order. Ordered again and call made to manufacturer to assure they do it correcly this time. Home Depot upgraded my windows as compensation but the hassle of picking up order 2x and then removing a window and finding they again are not the correct size takes away my confidence in Home Depot.

I have no problem with the windows, there are a very nice window, I see some say they cost to much. Let me tell you that is only because of the people you buy from and this is my Experience With Replacement Windows. I trusted a company that sell these windows to give me a fair price, bad mistake. Midwest Modern Exteriors Inc. Springfield, Mo. After the fact of signing the contract with them and paying for the windows I found out that I could purchase this same brand windows for about $5,000.00 on my own,you do the math. I believe you can find a window installer for less than $8000.00 dollars. So please do some research before buying anything. This was a bad experience and it won't be done again..For sure don't do business with this company.There is more to this story and its not good, I did not do my research that's for sure.

I am a general contractor thats been in bussiness for many years and sold thousands of windows over the years with min. warranty issues all of whitch I or the factory have covered parts and labor. Any homeowner that would pay more than 300.00 for 1 window with Lo-e, outside trim, and install is crazy, with all the companies that give lifetime warranties, glass breakage warranties in this price range and still turn a profit to stay in bus.. Most of the larger named companies that charge 500.00 plus are just lining thier pockets with your money. Before you buy your windows from any company do your homework on the windows and the company before you decide ie. talk to references and the manufacturer if possible and get everthing in writing including etimmated install dates.

I sold Simonton for 11 years through Sears. They retail through them at $1200.00 each then have price drops for volume and for buying today. Simonton is one of the best vinyl windows on the market; problem is, what Sears charges you 960.00 each actually costs $250.00 installed. Yikes!

I knew my windows needed to be replaced so I called my brother in-law to take a look. He told me vinal replacements were the way to go, he took the measurements, and ordered the windows for me from United. 13 double hung windows came to 3150, plus other materials it cost me around thirty five hundred total. I helped him install the windows and it took around 7 hours total.I found it relatively easy to install and I am very happy with the way they look.

Brand: ChampionWindow Type: Vinyl Double Hung Energy Star
Installer: Champion
Our windows were 20 years old and needed to be replaced. We got three quotes. Sears - originally $13,000 but came down to $10,800. Home Depot - Initial quote $16,000, but came down to $9,400. Champion - Initial quote $17,000, applied a bunch of discounts, I said no, and then they got down to $7,200. Of the three windows we saw, Champion had the most energy efficient and has foam insullation between the frame. The other two did not have any insullation inside the frame. Champion also uses spray foam insullation between the wall and window when installing the windows. They also replace the rotten wood trim outside of your windows with new trim and then put the vinyl wrap around it. I feel we got the best product for the best price. That averages out to $480 per window installed. Then we get the $1500 tax credit and $450 back from our local electric company. I think we did pretty well!

Windows were installed as promised in a timley manner. Salesman and Installers were very respectful and did a wonderful job. I would reccomend this company if you are interested in a great window for an affordable price. Honest Company.
