We had a consultation for a simple window install for 2 windows that had failed. The sales associate was really good at the job: wanted 2; ended up ordering 6.
Received the invoice and was actually OK with the price. However after talking to the installer and the Milgard rep; along with a few discrepancies on the itemized receipt; we pulled back and decided on just the 2 failing windows. Once we review the cost of that - we canceled the whole thing.
However we still needed to replace the failing windows. Contacted Milgard directly: they referred us to a certified installer.
they came out, measured everything and gave us 2 quotes: one with 6 windows and one with the 2 failed windows.
The quote for the 6 was $1400.00 lower then Lowes. the 2 failed windows was $600.00 lower then Lowes.
Lesson: go to the manufacture; they will send you to a certified installer that will not take you for a financial ride.
Product or Service Mentioned: Lowes Window Installation Estimate.
