The windows in our home, single layer glass with aluminum frames, were original to the house from 1963. Although all still opened if necessary, the plastic strips securing the panes were all quite brittle and easily broken. We had for some time been considering having them replaced with the newer double pane types. So when Conservation Construction called and wanted to give us an estimate, we said come ahead. For various reasons, we wanted the job done in two stages, first front and then rear. They were happy to schedule it this way. The first crew took pains to minimize the mess inside the house as they progressed. The only hitch was some damage to the azaleas at the bay window, which the company took care of. Unlike some other contractors we have heard about, they cleaned up inside and out and hauled off all of the old windows, leaving the exterior looking the same as before they arrived, except of course with great looking new windows. The rear of the house was done by a different crew about four months later. They behaved the same as the first crew, and when done also left the premises in good condition. Each job increment was started and completed in one day. Although I haven't yet done a heating or cooling cost analysis, I am sure that there is an improvement. The noise from outside is significantly reduced, especially from BW8 which is only about a block west of the house with nothing but our rear fence and a parking lot between us and it. My home-office on the west side of the house, which has one of the larger window exposures and no shade in the afternoons, is no longer chilly in the winter and a little warm in the afternoons in summer. As we approach the first anniversary of the first increment, we have had no issues with any of the windows.

While I can appreciate Mrs.Coes Constructive Critism, it simply was a very rare but very real nightmare.We had no time to prepare for such sruntinizing of a customer who standing over my shoulder, with such elaborate knowledge of Doors that I wonder why she hadn't installed it herself. Her step by step instructions from a you tube video seemed to trump my 20yrs of experience. Reference to my thumbtack reviews speak for themselves and this review does not have a negative effect on my expertise or hinder my business because there are times of chaos in life that causes discombobulated errors in business or public relations with sometimes not so gracious behavior, but she is an over achiever looking for perfection in performance while her own was questionable to say the least
Conservation Construction has done my home a tremendous upgrade with the installation of their windows. My previous windows had been allowing in cold air and they were outdated. I now have a snug fit with my windows and have experienced an increase in comfort through out my home. My wife and I also have noticed how the home seems more open after getting rid of the old grid pattern in the previous windows. My installer Brian Almquist did a fantastic job taking his time to make sure the windows were installed properly and cleaned up like he had never been there before. With a lifetime warranty I feel secure knowing I won't have to purchase any more windows in the future.
