Champion Windows / Sales Tactics
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 addedums writen on it. 'Purchased in the Champion showroom using the customer supplied measurements and installation information. Customer agrees to pay any additional cost discovered during the factory measurement'... Showroom purchases are not solicited at your residents and are not subject to cancellation... That means the customer is on the hook for any addtional products or labor to complete the project. Champion will hold any down payments as hostage to hold any customer to its contracts.
Champion warranty is not worth the paper that it is writen on and is a load of crap.
Don't be fooled by those worn out sales tactics they use. Its not worth the hassel so you would be better off just seek out another contactor that can offer as good as quility of products or even better at a lower price then Champion. I would recommend the any of the following windows over the Champion products.
Consumer Reports ranked replacement windows in its October 2007 issue. The consumer group based its ratings on wind and rain resistance, durability and convenience. There are some newer products availible today.
