I’m a member of Angie’s List, but there currently aren’t a significant number of reviews per company under the “windows” category in the Rochester, NY area. Any recommendations? Have I overlooked the place on this site that delves into the local companies?
Unfortunately we don’t know of any great companies in Rochester, but when you find one be sure to let us know!
I had a fire in my house and I need to replace the windows in my house. I called Home Depot inquiring about Andersen windows and they came out to the house to give me an estimate for Simonton windows. Because I have never heard of these windows, I began researching it on your website but I did not see a review for the 6100 or 6500 series on there. Pursuant to your website, I joined and paid for Angie’s list but they do not have window companies on it for my area. Also I attempted to get the information from your website as to the best replacement window company – 2015 award by clicking on your link but after I answer all the questions, it seems to bring me to a page that has an error or a glitch in it. Any info, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Sorry I guess I should inform you that I am in the New York City Area. Thank you.
It’s literally impossible that Angie’s List doesn’t list window companies in New York City. I’d suggest you double check and if you really can’t find them I’ll ask our rep about it.
Wow, you must live out in the sticks. I know in my area Angie’s List has several hundred window companies. Where are you located? Maybe we can help.
Any companies on Long Island that you can recommend? There’s nothing on your list close to us but NYC and they usually don’t come out to the island. Any help would be greatly appreciated. You have a helpful and awesome website might I add. Thank you
Hi Nancy, I am in the same boat as you here in Long Island. So far the only company I’ve liked is Window World but after reading through this site I get the feeling there are better quality windows out there than the Series 4000/Alside Mezzo for similar or a little more money. Just not sure where to look. Had horrible experiences with salespeople from other companies like Power and TriState Window. They pulled many of the tricks you read about on this site. Finding a good window company has been as hard as finding a good job. Hoping you’ve been able to find a good company by now for your windows.
@WindowDog – we need to get you some “friends” in this huge market called New York!
Hi Tony…well i’m still looking and getting more and more confused and frustrated on deciding what manufacturer and who to install. One installer suggested Simonton but read so so reviews, i’ve also been to window world that was the first place i went to and got a good price but like you i think there are better quality and ratings from other companies. My other option is just going with the Andersen 400 series but those are a few thousand more. Have you decided? Find any good brands to look at? I’ve seen Soft-Lite, Marvin, Elements, United, Pella but overwhelmed with good and bad reviews on different review websites. AND PLEASE window dog…we need help, here on long island. I’ve also sent you an email of my estimates, not sure you read it or not. But thanks again for a great site!
Hi Nancy, yes I have walked that frustration too and pretty much just threw my hands up and gave up being picky and just went with a family run window company that had great reviews and nice professional people working there. The place is called Morningstar, located in Farmingdale. I ended up purchasing Wincore windows on their recommendation. From what I’ve read those windows are pretty much on par with the Alside brand Window World sells. I have a friend that used Window World for his home and is very happy with their windows, but not so much the installers. The catch is Morningstar only sells windows, they don’t install them. So I had to go hunting for a good contractor to install them. What a mess that was… Anyway, just glad to get this over with at this point. Let me just say the whole process has been as frustrating as buying a home and leave it at that…
They sell Softlite windows also, they are more expensive and they are considered higher quality that the Wincore’s according to the sales person. They recommend that brand for folks living on the water/shore line where they face a lot of wind and cutting down on air infiltration is critical. They made it sound as though it would have been overkill for my application as I live nowhere near the water. They claim the Wincore’s give more value for the money, but who knows, could just be saying that because they have some deal with Wincore to give them more volume, but again I could care less at this point, really suffering with the old aluminum windows my crummy house came with and anything would be better than what I have now… Looking back I wish I would have just given my money to Window World and moved on with life.
Tony, So how are your new windows holding up with this cold winter we are having? I was close to getting the Anderson 400 series but then the weather was getting very cold and the holiday were almost upon us so I decided to wait till the spring or at least when the snow is over. We did actually go to Morningstar in Farmingdale as well and he even gave me a number of an installer i think it’s Stan.
Any suggestions for selecting a brand? I’m still flip flopping….
Hi Nancy, I ended up going with Wincore windows from Morningstar. None of the 4 guys they recommended ended up doing the work, found someone else to install. I was chasing each of them to get quotes and to move forward with the job but they were all very unresponsive. Didn’t bother with any of them as I feel as a professional you should keep you word and I shouldn’t have to chase you and constantly follow up.
Anyway, I’ve found the Wincores to be decent/mediocre. I’m fine with the double hungs we put in but extremely unhappy with a bay window we ordered which leaks air like CRAZY. You can feel a clear draft coming in anytime your face is near the window seams (where the sash meets the frame). That was for the first floor of our home.
For the second floor I decided to forgo trying out another brand like Softlite from Morningstar and going through the hastle of finding a GOOD contractor. Ended up just going with Window World. They are actually here now as I am typing. I’ll let you know how things went if you remind me in a few weeks… but I must say I have a lot more peace of mind this time around.
One thing worth mentioning Window World did that I did not like is the salesperson came to measure, wrote up the contract with a price which I signed and agreed to. Next step was for a guy to come and take “final measurements” and after that was done, I was contacted by the salesperson to let me know extra work would be needed and thus a price increase on top of what we already agreed upon. Felt a little dishonest to me but it is what it is…. I would be more understanding if they said upfront hey this is an estimate price, final price might change by up to x amount.
Anyway, good luck Nancy!
Tony, May I ask who you used to install your other windows from Morningstar? Maybe I can have him give me an install estimate for the Anderson’s if you liked his work? And yes please let me know how you like your window world windows because they are my other option. Thanks again. Hopefully these windows will work out better for you too since it is a big investment.
How did those windows work out
I am looking at the Simonton 5500 series windows for an old wood framed house that has vinyl siding on it. I am in NYC and looking for windows that are energy efficient and will last. There is a company call Nu-Vue Windows in Oceanside that make their own windows. What is your opinion on be cautious about prices being so low for windows?
Go with Andersen. They are the best bet. Stay away from all hollow vinyl windows. They expand and contract with heat and cold which effects their performance. They are not a good product. Go with a wood window with vinyl on the exterior. You will get the strength, durability and insulating value of the wood frame and the weather projection of the vinyl exterior.
Hi Kevin, I don’t know if you’ll find too many people who agree with that sentiment. Notice Andersen never gave you any data on that. You’d think if you had it they would be giving it to everyone.
So what window co. Do you recommend on LONG ISLAND
