Comment: I will never recommend this company or these windows. The company is so unprofessional, rude arrogant and product comes in damaged. I hired this company to install windows in my home and all of them came in damaged. Installed unleveled. And cut corners to install quickly to get out of here. The district manager Jim is a arrogant rude person. Telling a hoe owner that they are not allowed to remove windows and told me i didn't know what I was doing and they...

Champion Windows - Seal Compromised

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
My home had new windows put in prior to me purchasing the home and the seal is broken on the double pane and
they are charging me damn near full price to replace the window. Because I didn't write the check to them for the new windows. Seems like a farce to give lifetime warranty for just one person when they knew he was selling the home to me. Never will I buy anything from this company ever!!...

Champion Windows - Kentucky - Lying on contractual agreement and ordering items

Posted: 2012-11-28 by    J.E. SEYMOUR
Complaint Rating:  100 % with 5 votes
My mother-in-law died in March of 2012. My wife is the executrix of the estate with her brother and my wife as the heirs of the estate. We began getting things repaired on a large sun room that my parents-in-law built under the estate. Orders for two windows allegedly still covered by the lifetime warranty were incomplete and one of the two windows took 8 months to get. They installed the first window finally (late by some months) at no expense but this second window which we were told was also still under warranty now is allegedly not under warranty and it is not their fault. I have found out that...

Champion Windows - Texas, Austin - Contract Scam

Posted: 2012-09-26 by    LuvAGlock
Complaint Rating:  88 % with 8 votes
After arriving at a "cash price" and paying what I believed to be about a 33% down payment of that price, the salesperson wrote a higher amount (the negotiated cash price + my down payment) on the contract which stated it was the total sales price.
Unfortunately, I caught this too late and there's no way to prove the salesperson's dishonesty as there's nothing obvious on the contract to indicate foul play. This is an old sales tactic and a safe play as far as the salesman taking risk. If discovered immediately (as it should have), the salesperson can feign ignorance...

Just wanted to let you know how disappointed I have become with Champion Windows and your representatives…arriving late, weeks to get replacement windows, charges to reinstall replacement windows that had damage due to no fault of ours…seals gone bad…
I have come to find out that your “lifetime” guarantee is really only a 3-5 year guarantee depending on which option one chooses at the time of window installation. After that you have to pay a $75 “trip charge”…so much for the replacement guarantee...sure you will replace your windows as long...

Champion Windows - Iowa, Altoona - Shoddy Workmanship, Missed Appointments

Complaint Rating:  87 % with 15 votes
I ordered windows and a storm door from Champion Windows in May 2008 with a scheduled installation of the first week of July, during my vacation. Problems started from before the installation. The factory broke one of the windows so didn't ship any of the windows, and I was notified in the middle of my vacation week that the installation had to be postponed, too late for me to reschedule my vacation. Thanks to the then service manager (since then let go!), who drove to Colorado and picked up my windows, the windows were installed before my vacation ended. Unfortunately the crew that installed...

Champion Windows - Kansas, Lenexa - Used Non-paintable caulking & broke stove top range

Posted:    ProfessionalismWhere?
Complaint Rating:  86 % with 14 votes
Used non-paintable caulking around windows. Broke stove top range and took weeks to replace i t. Had to pay a professional paint company to fix the caulking damage $700 after paying Champion for messing it up.

Their response to the negligence: We are done and that's it.
At this point, it would be a civil lawsuit.

I recommend to use a more knowledgable window company and allow a professional painter/co to do the caulking job.

On Champion's flyer ads, they say they build it. install it and stand behind it. They do not stand behind their...

I had a house full of windows installed in the spring of 2008. The first winter I had to put plastic on the windows, because they leaked so bad. Again this past winter I've had to do the same. I did call the company and they sent someone out to investigate. They said this was a normal occurence. Extremely dissatisfied with the windows and the customer service. That was the worst $7, 500.00 I ever spent....

Champion Windows - Texas, San Antonio - backed off from completing project

Complaint Rating:  88 % with 16 votes
I just became a first time homebuyer and requested champions to take a look at our upgrades request. My primary concern was to have the siding fixed as there was a small hole that needed repair. They agreed to fix it along with getting my window estimates to be installed in the near future. I planned to do the whole siding of the wall and replace 7 windows. Once the contractor arrived he was helpful in explaining what needed to be done and that it would not be a problem to replace the 2 or 3 siding planks. He tried to match the material and said he was unsuccessful. Furthermore, the weather was...

We purchased five double hung, one garden, one two lite slider 6/23/09 They were installed 8/17/09 On 8/25/09 the garden windwo broke. I called the Avon office to inform them of problem. They told me it was probably a stress fracture. They sent someone out to measure the broken part. They should have already had those measurements in the computer. Anyway, they said it would be another six weeks for the part to come in. At the end of six weeks I called, only to find the order was never submitted. She said it would be another six weeks. I explained to her that we were going away and needed to get...

Are you kidding... I am sick and tried of double standards and the greed these days. I'm very disappointed and I got to warn everyone to stay away from Champion of Oklahoma City because they are a bunch of ripoffs and con artists. Dale Hollaway the division manger is a total jerk to deal with and the office lady Vicky. I was told that was Dales wife and I wonder how they stand each other. Same bad attitude I guess. They are both are some really ugly people and they shouldn't be allow to be out in public. Our salesman Chad was really nice until we made our purchase and then he could not...

Champion Windows - Texas, Dallas - Sloppy job & incorrectly installed windows

Posted:    KathleenMarie
Complaint Rating:  85 % with 27 votes
I had most of my windows replaced recently in my home by Champion Windows. Many of the windows were installed incorrectly and the caulking job was horrific. I have never seen such a horrible caulking job. There is caulking all over the window sills and the drywall. And, their sales price of 30% to 50% off is not a sales price, as the windows are horribly marked up. I would advise that anyone going with Champion only pay with a credit card so that you have some leverage if work is done incorrectly. As I paid with a credit card, I disputed charges with my card holder and they are putting a hold on...

I made the mistake of working for this ripoff company for a short period of time. I left Champion and hit the afterburners in moving onto something else other then trying to sucker each customer into doing something that is not in there best interest.

If your thinking about going to work for Champion or purchasing any of its products you should check yourself and don't waist your time and just look further at other offering instead of making that big mistake that you will most certainly regret.

Champion Windows - Oklahoma, Oklahoma City - Sales Tactics

Complaint Rating:  74 % with 19 votes
This place is a joke... Champion offers a average window products but at a way over inflated book price then starts applying discounts of up to 50% off and then its all sales pressure to buy it now. But even at those so called discounted prices its a way to much price to pay. A jacked-up price with deep discounts is still a jacked- up price to pay. Seek out other estimates with a company that doesn't have to play those sales games with it customers in an attempt to pads its profits.

BUYERS BEWERE never sign anything within the Champion showroom that has the following contract...
