Power Home Remodeling - window replacement
My son and I were at The Houston Dog Show when we were approached by one of the people at the Power Home Remodeling Group exhibit about window replacements. I am in the market for window replacement and decided to listen to what this man had to say. First, there was a high pressure sales pitch about getting an estimate for a roof replacement which I don't need. Second, when I was emphatic about when I was available for my 'free estimate good for a year' the man attempted to change my mind on when the estimate would take place and we finally agreed on a time for the appointment, I had two phone calls the same night to 'confirm'. The appointment was to take place on Friday afternoon at 4:00 pm. Third, I received two MORE phone calls to confirm the time again on the day of the appointment. Fourth, 4:00 pm Friday came and went and I received a call at 4:45 pm from another person stating that the company 'cannot install windows in your neighborhood because of previous hurricane damage'. WHAT? This was discovered AFTER the five phone calls for the free estimate?? Why was this company even at a public Expo trying to get customers when they knew this was a possibility? I just don't understand. Finally, do NOT waste your time on this company; clearly, they have an underlying agenda and utilize the opportunity to get addresses and phone numbers for something other than replacing windows.
Power Home Remodeling - misleading sales presentation
Dealing with Power has been one of the worst experiences I’ve had with any firm. Before going into the whole narrative I’ll list the three worst parts. 1 – Their measurements for the size of the house were inflated by about 30%. 2 – they used the insulting practice of giving a ridiculously high “ guaranteed “ price and then offering a ”same day only” discounted price – which interestingly enough was about 30% lower. 3 – This is the worst in my opinion. They sold our credit info to some anonymous group of contractors. etc. Of course they say you can opt out. All you have to do is contact the group and give them your name, birth date, and social security number. What could be wrong with that?
We had told the initial contact that we were not in the market at this time. We just wanted an estimate for the future. No problem we were told. Our rep will come and do some measurements and you’ll get your estimate. When the rep arrived we told him twice – before he began his presentation – that we were not buying. He said he understood and would be brief. If you consider three hours brief then he kept his word – in the same way Power does.
As others noted they don’t have any variety in colors or design. Why does it take three hours? Because they want to wear you down. After measuring the house he worked on his tablet for about 10 minutes all the while mumbling about how big the house was and how much vinyl was involved. It is not a big house. By the way he measured the gutters at 60 feet – the house is 50 feet long. It is an average raised ranch. Then he came up with the inflated price – over $50, 000.00. He then excused himself for a minute and I told my wife that he was going to come back with a price below $40, 000.00. And of course he did but in order to get it we had to sign that day. We told him again that we were not buying. It did no good. It just unleashed a series of manager’s discounts and other specials.
We asked if we could contact him later. He said no. They were not allowed to give out their phone number or email address for “privacy” reasons. So you can’t get in touch with them. This was driven home when I went to their web site to complain about the credit info. You can only contact them for sales info – there is no way to question them or get any info other than sales.
When he saw his sale vanishing he started offering partial jobs. One was the gutters and soffits for $3200.00. I had a local contractor come for an estimate. He said that the front didn’t need any work and he did the back gutters for under $800.00. The soffits didn’t need any work. Beware of what they tell you is needed. Get another estimate before signing anything. Their rep also told us a bunch of ridiculously exaggerated horror stories about what might happen. Several of the spikes had come out of the gutters. According to him rain was going to get into the small holes, run down the sides of the house, infiltrate the foundation and ruin it. As the holes were smaller than a dime and under the eaves of the roof, this was absurd. There were other wild stories but I think I’ve said enough.

Power Home Remodeling - theft
We had Power Home Remodeling Group install new windows in our master bathroom. After the installers left, we found several pieces of jewelry missing from my wife's jewelry box, and my teenage daughter's bedroom was search. Please be careful before letting these people into your home! Remember, they have your address.
Power Home Remodeling - stay away
I have worked in the marketing department out of power windows and sidings cranford nj office for almost two years (the guys who knocks on your door or approaches you in BJs.) Power windows is not a bad company, in fact, they are a very good company that's treats it's employees very well. They are, however, a first-call-close sales organization, just so happens they sell windows.
All of their products are top of the line as far as quality, warrenty an especially energy efficiantcy. Sure it's gonna be a well dressed salesman at your home and not bob villa, but what company could possibly survive giving free window and siding estimates in this economy? Gimmie a break people.
I graduated in 2008 with a bachelor's from a major university, and because of the economy I couldn't find a job...doing anything! Having worked various jobs since I was 15 I was prepaired to take any job I could find. Growing up in northern nj you develop a stereo type for door to door sales. However, not only does this company offer a fair pay structure, and they actually pay you, they offer full health and dental benefits and a 401k...to knock on doors. The run several promotions through the year and have an amazing Christmas party that p diddy would be proud of. They also do a great deal of charity work and have been featured of extreme home make over and recently on NBC Philly when they completely re did and elderly women's home after she was diagnosed with a life threatening ailment.
So to all you people out there spending all their time and effort trying to bad mouth this company, GET OVER YOURSELF! The fact is that the economy is ### and will continue to be ### for the forseable future. So the next time someone knocks on your door or stops you in BJs, don't brush him off like he's some scam artist. The truth is tht he's probably a college graduate, or a father, someone with bills to pay just like you, and goals in life. We all need to take a step back and scrap the door to door stigmata because frankly it's the people like us who hustle for a living tht made this country great once, not you miserable greedy ### who backrupted the country so you could be a little richier in your sad little world. Everyone should have to do door to door sales at some point in their life, it teaches you a whole new perspective on people, and just how cold thy can really be.
