I am a professional window sales representative. All I can say is steer clear of any business advertising super low prices. The only way these types of businesses can compete is to use cut rate labor. The owner came from Window World and copied the business model. If you want the job done right Never buy from any business operating on the cheap!

Master Remodelers Inc
I have had a positive experience with Master Remodelers. They agreed to do the work as agreed and in a timely manner. They conduct themselves in a very professional manner. They are a very competent company and they sweat all the details ensuring the customer has a good remodeling experience. I feel confident that other customers will also have a good experience with Master Remodelers.

Hollis Contracting
Mr. Hollis came immediately when called and started the job promptly. He did not complete the job as stated in his proposal. He said if there were any problems he would return. Water damage persisted and after multiple phone calls and excuses he never returned to complete the job.

They did a great job and were very professional. They showed up on time and cleaned up the materials when finished. Our new basement windows look great and our home feels more secure.

Pittsburgh Glass Block
We found Pittsburgh Glass Block at the Pittsburgh Home Show. My wife and I filled out a card on a Saturday and were promptly called back to schedule an appointment on Monday. Bruce came out to give us a quote. The price was very reasonable and we scheduled our work for the following week. The installation was quick - Tom, our installer was wonderful and it was as if he was never there (clean and quick). We were extremely pleased with Pittsburgh Glass Block all around and would certainly recommend them to family and friends.

I would discourage anyone for using this company. I hired them, and it was one of my biggest mistakes ever. "They" are really just one guy who sells projects, and then he tries to pull together enough workers to try to accomplish the task. He will not answer your calls, he will lie about actual costs, he will over promise and under deliver. The contractors he hires can't even trust him to pay them. He will cut corners and have his sub contractors do just enough that you won't take legal action. He is not to be trusted. I gave him the opportunity to make it right before I took legal action and once I convinced him to do the right thing, it took him weeks to write a refund check that ended up not even being the amount it was supposed to be.He held 12k for four months and had "his crew" (two guys) do less than nine full days of work.

THE WORST customer service and timeliness of any company i've ever worked with. The receptionist (Debra) is clueless and rude. The staff (Tom) never responds in less than a week and they never apologized. Actually got defensive!! Changed my install date less than 24 hours before they were supposed to come and pushed it back A MONTH! DONT DO IT

I have had a horrible experience with this company. The replacement windows installed were ok but one of them cracked over the winter and I have been trying to get a replacement for over 2 years now. This is ridiculous my windows are covered under the warranty. I have talked to the owner multiple times and he keeps assuring me he will get it replaced and yet here a year later I'm still waiting!
Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.
