Madison Sunroom & Window Replacement Contractor
Their products are all of very good quality, even at the lower end. We opted for the middle ground for various features that appealed to us. In my pricing searches, all of Ben's product lines were a little more expensive than the low-, middle-, and high tiers at other retailers, but it's obvious that the products he sells at each of those levels are far superior than most options out there. Ben clearly only wants to sell strong, reliable products, so yes, they cost a little more.
The installation itself was very reassuring as well. The workmanship was excellent, right down to their almost-unnoticeable caulk beads. The coil wrapping for our aged exterior molding was top-notch and really cleaned up the exterior of our windows. Considering the price of the windows included this quality installation work, it was well worth the extra money.
We learned about ClearView Construction from a neighbor who added a 3-season room to her house. She raved about her experience and we liked what we saw so we contacted ClearView for our projects. The owner scheduled a meeting with us. Right away we realized that he is extremely knowledgeable about how homes are built. We had a detailed discussion about what we wanted in these 2 projects. He listened carefully, took notes, and examined the areas to be modified, taking precise measurements. He then guided us in selecting the appropriate products. After that he further researched the products we'd discussed (some of the products had to be customized) and he presented us with costs and timeframes to receive and install these products. We signed contracts for both projects because we trusted him, because it was a pleasure working with him, and because we were impressed by his deep knowledge about construction and the products. He was generous in his time with us, often meeting with us in evenings and on weekends to accommodate our schedules. He kept in touch with us throughout the process. When he and his crew removed one of the old doors they discovered rot at the bottom of the door frame; it was necessary to remove and replace the rotting board before the new door could be installed. The owner and crew showed us the rot and they had with them the appropriate tools and materials to make the repair, and although the repair took several hours and added to our cost (only slightly), we were pleased to be able to correct the problem before it got worse. We found the owner detail-oriented. The crew was professional, courteous, friendly and respectful.
We are already thinking about our next project with ClearView!
Ben, Dale, and Jeff handled every aspect of the job with care and professionalism. They arrived actually ahead of schedule and replaced all our windows and patio doors in four days. They kept the work site neat and cleaned up and took away the old windows and doors after they were done for the day. The new windows and patio doors were installed neatly and with precision, are rock solid, and should last us for many years into the future.
They were friendly, polite, and engaging; and answered our questions and concerns before, during, and after the job. Having owned our own business, we understand the meaning of commitment to ensure the job is done right with quality and integrity. Each day they provided that little bit extra in making sure we were 100% satisfied with the work being done. We believe ClearView has met or exceeded all our expectations and we know they will be there in the future if needed.
The door, of course, is terrific. Slides like silk, very efficient. It was the last original portal to our home and now that it is upgraded (and repaired) I feel so much better knowing that ClearView's quality work is all around it. Surely it will give us decades of reliable use and, being vinyl and bordered by new aluminum, keep us from having to ever paint around it again.
