Lowes installed 20 leaking hurricane windows - 4 months ago now..

1.0
Details
Lowes installed 20 now leaking hurricane windows almost 4 months ago. Installers admit that they sealed windows to the vinyl siding instead of the underlying waterproofing layer but LOWES still researching 'causation' while my house gets damaged with every rain. https://youtu.be/kBGkQlZUELE Below shows my house with plastic flapping in the wind. Lowes trying to cover windows but plastic blows off right away and leaks continue from all 20 hurricane windows. Plastic also blows against other windows keeping us awake all night. https://youtu.be/Zbio_jPcOdE Biggest mistake I ever made ordering windows at #lowes

You can’t make an appointment at the store for measurements so I did so on line as required. Waited 10 days for installer to show up and they sent a window repair man who doesn’t do installations. Now have to wait another 10 days. I’m desperately looking for an alternative bc I DO NOT want to do business w/Lowe’s!!!

Will wait short time for Lowe's to respond and fix the problems. if not the figure I have reported as a loss is what the window repair company has quoted me to fix the problems.

Installed 5 replacement top of the line Pella windows 7/29/19 on my home by Lowes. Installers did not caulk the outside of the windows only because I noticed it (the installers said "they didn't have any caulk" and would be back...NOT. I ran to Home Depot and grabbed a...

Lowes in North Fort Myers, Florida - WORST installation experience for windows

Lowe's installed 5 Pella windows, left WITHOUT caulking outside, left it bare wood, said they "had no caulk". Tropical storms and wind here in Florida (July). Caulked windows myself with Flex Seal and now I'm told I "voided" their warranty. Stupid, careless and incompetent does not even describe their actions. I rate their installation service as a MINUS 10. STAY AWAY, find a local company instead.

Update by user Jul 03, 2018

Today I learned that the Project Coordinator is back on the scene in Indiana, not the Insurance Agent in North Carolina. I just paid out $22,000.00 to have building code windows in my house and Lowe's out of building code windows removed, and siding replaced from their window installer and band-aide crew they hired.

Sent the insurance agent and the CEO the bill. Gave them until June 27th, 2018 to pay. Nope, even filed a complaint with the Dept of Justice and they won't even reply to them let alone the adjuster that has been trying to get in contact with the insurance agent. Went to return windows to Lowe's Elizabeth City and they refused them on June 20, 2018.

Gave them 10 days to get them off of my property, and not responsible for any damages, or they would be deposed of. Kinda funny dealing with the Project coordinator in Indiana from Dec. 2017-Feb. 11, 2018 and he did nothing while I watched my house being destroyed, then it goes to the insurance agent Feb.

20 2018-whenever, now back to the Project Coordinator. Not only that, the Project Coordinator continues to tell the Bank/Credit Card company that this dispute is resolved and I have been dealing with them since Jan.

2018 on a monthly basis to continue to dispute the charge. Next step, Federal Trade Comission in North Carolina and the Attorney General in Indiana.

Original review posted by user Jun 03, 2018

I contracted in Oct. 2017 to have a 15 window install in my parents house that I am renovating. The last major renovation before selling it. Nov. 2017, they installed the windows and in Dec. 2017 I started complaining about leaks, hole in bathroom wall, installers threw away part of my siding, put roofing nails in my siding which cracked it, used washable caulking that ran down my siding when it rained, caulking cracked all around the windows, damaged a mulled window (still sitting there), damaged 2 bedrooms of paneling, ran out of wood for the trim so instead of a 45 degree, it was left straight, sold me windows not in building code. This is still a ongoing dispute and it is June 2018, HURRICANE SEASON! This has been a nightmare. After multiple phone calls in and out of state, I finally was able to reach someone that had the nerve to give me the project coordinator e-mail address (in Feb. 2018) to send pictures to him about the damages since him and his assistant were totally deaf to my pleads. In Jan 2018, another contractor for Lowe's came out and took pictures and sent his pictures to the project coordinator assistant, nothing happened. I did not get any reply from the project coordinator after I sent him pictures so, I researched and found the CEO e-mail address and included him in the correspondence along with pictures. Then I get a reply that it had been turned over to Lowe's insurance. Adjuster came out in Feb. 2018 sent his report to the Senior Claims Examiner in Legal in March 2018. April 2018 I get a settlement agreement, but by that time I had torn out the paneling and insulation in my walls, to find large and small holes in the outside walls covered up with moisture barrier tape that was leaking into my walls, mold and mildew in my walls, damaged floor, mold and mildew in my insulation. I requested that they include in the agreement that I could resubmit for the additional damages since the adjuster did not see this damage so I could have this repaired and send them the bill. Apparently not! The adjuster wanted to come out to assess the damage for the mold and mildew only in May 2018, not the holes in the outside walls, not the damage floor, just the mold and mildew! Their agreement states that I will not tell anyone about this, I will not sue any employee or their companies and I am suppose to settle for approximately 10-15 thousand less then what the damages are because of their negligence, incompetence, intentional disregard towards someone else's property. They have held my house hostage since Dec. 2017 while I continue to pay taxes, utilities, insurance, HOA fees. I have also had to start including the Senior Claims Examiner in Legal supervisor in my e-mail because of the games she enjoys playing ( out of the office from April 6, 2018-May 10, 2018, she was there on April 12, 2018) I am a senior and retired with limited income that has approximately $60,000 in damages from a window installer that is only licensed by the State of NC for fence, deck and siding! It is June 2018 now, I hope that no one has to go through this nightmare as I have and will probably continue on until they pay for the full damages.

Does Lowe’s use unlicensed installers ?

Apparently so, this contractor was licensed for fence, deck and siding but not window install, checked around and the contractor wants to start installing windows. My house, his test subject.

Lowes in Plano, Texas - Terrible window replacement experience

1.0
Details
Began this nightmare in March of 2018. Had 22 windows to be replaced. Lowe’s required 100% ($12,000) payment upfront upon signing contract. Was told windows would be ready in 6 weeks. It’s now December of 2018. Still waiting for job to be finished. Have taken over 12 days off work to wait for installations that never happened. Requested multiple times for contact by store manager. He never calls. I don’t know what I have to do to get this job done. Lowe’s only wants your money. The *** with customers. Just want everyone to know to stay away from this store!!!!!!

Lowes in Hinesville, Georgia - Simple window shades installation

Absolutely the worst experience ever. Simply window shade installation resulted in having to pickup and finish the install myself. Immediately destroyed my Lowes Card. Will never set foot in this facility again. Was lied to many times over.

Was promised for window installers to be delivered today at 8 am nothing ,called at 9:15 was told they did not put my window in the truck and it’s already gone , no call from anyone I paid up front over a month ago , now am waiting for someone to call me back ,over an hour ago, the last I heard was we can do it next week , I will not agree to that ,they are not following their contract , I am very furious and will not ever deal with them again , I am getting a run around. This is absolutely ridiculous! They should be the ones on top of their deliveries. If the windows were promised today it’s not our responsibility to make the workers put the windows on the truck! NEVER DEALING WITH THEM AGAIN!

Lowes - Horrible Experience with Windows!

I purchased Pella windows from Lowes in Oshkosh, WI on April 3, 2018. The windows were received and installation began on May 15. The installer made a mistake on the window measurements: they were 1/2" too big for the openings but insisted they could make the window fit. WRONG! The installers got the windows in but they mutilated my home. They have yet to finish wrapping the outside of the windows and have removed all the interior wood trim around the windows. It is now July 17 and Lowes doesn't give a damn about completing the installation. I have contacted four reputable contractors and no one wants to finish Lowes *** I am contacting an attorney and the cost will be much greater than if I had just purchased the windows from a reputable company. If you want windows, STAY AWAY FROM LOWES! Lowes doesn't even deserve a one-star rating.

I don't understand your comment that I might be a to total c**t. I will not stoop to your level but Lowes is responsible for this dreadful situation.

Lowes hired the installer, agreed with the installer's "solution" to the wrong-size windows, and now will not help correct the situation.

Lowes should not be selling windows... they should leave it to the professionals.

The "professionals" you speak of have all been driven out of business by cheap a55 people like you who want to save a few bucks shopping at places like Lowe's.

Even the professionals get some of their things at Lowes or Home Depot. An independent contractor isn't going to touch the job because another contractor was working on it.

It's a legal issue to them.

Your best bet is to contact the installer. If you have to contact the corporate office.
