Window World - pricing

Complaint Rating:  50 % with 2 votes
I have always dealt with the Window World offices/franchises in PA & NY. Always very satisfied with their products, services, pricing and installation.
I wanted to get a replacement window for my daughter while I was visiting in Idaho and was shocked at the difference in price from the national advertisements and what this franchise charged.
Window World has always prided themselves on offering the installed price of their windows starting at only $189 total for window and installation. I have taken upgrades from that in the past to the next window at $209 total for a plain double...

I will never never refer this company to anyone. Also when there is a customer referral that person never gets their check. Currently two months and no check. Customer service horrible and the installation crew careless. Left messages never call back unless I can caught someone at the office. Apparently the owner doesn't give a crap about anything. Time for him to go. Rip-off....

Window World - Excessive time to make order correct

I ordered replacement windows and doors on May 23, 2014. Two of the doors were special order doors. The storm I ordered was to have the screen on top to prevent dogs and children from tearing it up. The installation took place in July, which I can understand because of the special order door. I allowed Window World to utilize the dumpster I had in my drive way to discard the old windows, except for the aluminum storm windows, which one of the installers took to recycle for money. I went to check the work and found that my special order storm door had been made incorrectly, the screen was on the...

I had WW install 9 windows in my home. They installed 8 of them properly. I was told by the salesman I needed to purchase some wood in order to re-frame my kitchen window due to the width of the new windows. I purchased what was requested and placed it directly in front of the window. When the crew came out not only did they NOT re-frame the window but stated that there was no wood there in the first place. Additionally the install they did on the kitchen window left much to be desired - they filled in the gaps with caulk in some places over an inch thick. For over 4 weeks I tried to get the company...

Window World - Bogus warranty

Beware of misleading warranty claims by Window World. I purchased a home that had newly installed Window World windows. They said they came with a lifetime warranty and that it would apply to us. I called and verified this with Window World when we first purchased the home and when a lower window was defective and the glass formed cracks in the heat. I was told to just provide the serial number of the window and it would be taken care of. I called back and provided the numbers and was still told it would be covered. I was called today and told it would cost $75 that paperwork has to be filled out...

Salesman came to our house twice to provide an estimate. He gave us his final price, I gave him two separate deposit checks one for a door and another for 5 windows. Three weeks later I had not gotten a start date or design info requested by our HOA. The sales guy told me he would get it. Finally going into our 4th week I called the salesman, no answer...left him a voice mail to call me or I was going to cancel my order. I sent him an email as well. Get this, I get an email telling me he does not have the info I requested but attached is another contract I would need to sign increasing our cost...

Window World - Very unprofessional

where to start... first off we had them here to order 8 windows, including a sliding door. When they arrived with our windows 2 of them were not the right size, had to reorder those 2. Then they installed the sliding door, two different panels, one with grids and one clear, (they didn't notice) so we called the company the next day, man came out, said oh my god, we will make it right and get you the correct panel and change it as soon as possible. Well a day or two went by, they came with the new panel, and again.. they brought the clear one, we had ordered the one with all the grids in, so...

Window World - Colorado, Greeley - Scheduling

I ordered my window approximately Oct. 9th, and I finally got scheduled for today, December 9th. My appointment was for between 8:30am and 9:30am. I just received a call that they will not be installing because of cold weather. Now I do understand that it is cold, but it has been cold for a week or better. They could have rescheduled me earlier. Now I get rescheduled on December 28th, a Saturday which works, but that is my birthday. Seems as though every time I turn around there is a poor excuse from Window World, and the lady scheduling is such a delight. (That is sarcasm)!!! What a disappointment...

Window World - bad installation

We had Window World to replace all of our windows and a patio door in our home. When they came out to install them, the door was too big for the opening where they removed my patio door. The installers cut on my house without my permission and went to a hardware store to get supplies to make the door fit. Years later my floor rotted and had mold on it, because the door had been leaking from the poor installation. It also made the seal break and damaged one of our joist in our house. The floor under the door dropped 2 inches below the door. I informed Window World about this and all I have received...

I called Window World in Chattanooga, Tn. to have 13 windows replaced. The salesman came out and went through his sales pitch. I ordered the windows and approx 3 weeks later they called and said that they were in and they were ready to install. The appointment was set for 9:00 am the next day. The installers showed up at 10:30am and after a brief time of working approx 15 minutes they (2 of them) looked at me and said "lunch time" . They went out to their truck and ate their lunch and restarted working at 11:30am. Now granted they did clean up after themselfs, but they left the windows not sealed...

I ordered 20 windows from the salesman and was happy with him and the product and cost and description of installations. What a mistake I made.
When I signed the contract I asked about the 3 day cancellation policy that was not on the contract and he said it did not apply to windows because they were "custom made", right, just like the 60 other houses in my development built the exact same way.
My wife decided to cancel because we found out that they in fact DID NOT make the windows. The rep lied and said they were the largest window manufacturer in US. They are made my Allside (AMI)...

Window World - Alabama - Wrong Windows and Damaged Floor

Ordered 8 replacement windows. I have paid the 1/2 down payment required. The 4 they installed were not like the others in my house so now I will have to replace 2 more so the front view of my house will be the same. The contractor used my bathroom and flooded it and the hallway thus damaging my wood floors. They have only offered $140 to fix the floors and the estimate is $1300. They are still pestering me about installing the other 4 windows! Don't want them back on my property!...

Window World - Minnesota, Minneapolis - Improper installation

I purchased a Front Window with two side "slides". The instaler came in with cheap pine board and I called them on it. He promptly went to get the proper Oak which was ordered for the boarders and installed the Window. Behold, later the window did not fit on the right side. It would not slide far enough to the left to lock. My home is not secure(window wise) and I cannot get the warranty dept. to work w/me despite I have a claim. I have sent in the proper paperwork. After 45days(what they say they need to process) I phoned. Excuses are "repair person is not in will call tomorrow" = no call. I call...

I purchased and moved into a “not so new home” on August 2nd this year. I am a senior on social security disability and on a limited income, but I had a little money left over from the sale of my small home in another city so I decided to put it into more energy efficient windows that would help conserve energy.

I contacted Window World in Dallas for a free estimate. I was duly impressed and ordered the windows I could afford. I gave the salesman $1301 for the deposit, and was to pay the additional half of $1301 upon installation in about 6 weeks. The window contract indicated...

Window world came by June 4th, 2012 and gave us a good price.perhaps we should Havel been suspicious. They promised our windows would be installed in four to six weeks. When August 1st came we called. They said "oh, your windows are here but we lost your phone number." we had given them both of our cell numbers and our home phone, so not true. They said the.y would come on Wednesday, called and canceled, okay Thursday, called and cancelled. Set an appointment for Saturday between 11-1. Showed up at 2:20, no phone call. Installed the windows, putting a piece of wood between the brick and window,...
