A 12 Double Hung window, 1 picture window and Bay Window. Using the highest quality replacement window in the world should cost under $7500.00. Entire job. Remember they are Replacements. Means, they go into your existing window frame. It is literally putting a whole window into your old window. Done this way for nothing more than maximizing profits. If you had paid $21, 000 for that People's Product owners would be laughing all the way to the bank. The "Hr40" is a replacement window, and a mid-grade one at that. It using heat shield technology, just more plastic. A cheap piece of film in the middle that distorts your natural light. The film can buckle and warp. The plastic they use discolors. You were 100% correct on leaning towards fiberglass. Fiberglass windows are much stronger there for allowing you to preserve more glass, and they install a complete new frame with them. When it comes to pricing windows People's Products really only wants to install the double hung. It is very profitable and super fast install. Any time you get an estimate from them that includes the specialty units. I would say People's Products is the highest in the country. It shows the true arrogance & poor business practices used by People Products. They think home owners only may know the price of a double hung because they display them at home improvement big box stores. So when you ask to see a price on a Bay, Garden, Casement or Slider. They really go into the realm of ridiculousness. They are simply fishing for the big whale. It is the only reason that company stays in business. When you rip off customers so bad. You only need to sell a few a month.
This is why they were able to call you back and drop another $7000.00 off the job. So from $35, 000 to $21, 000 insane!!!They still would have pocketed $14, 500 on the job at that price. Imagine if you said yes at first offer. Wow. Any and all home owners looking to improve their home should stay 100% clear of People's Products. They are the bottom of the barrel in CT. Owner Bill Wilson started his career as a tele-marketer. Just think about how we all feel about those types of individuals. ahhh run the other way!!!
