Long Life replaced all my aluminum frame windows, as well as 2 aluminum frame patio sliders, 3 skylights, and my front door. We are extremely satisfied with the high quality Vinyltek windows and their lifetime warranty. Kris from Long Life was a pleasure to deal with. All promises and commitments were fulfilled. Commitment to customer service is a significant plus in dealing with these folks. As with any house project, its more than the materials. The installation crew is a huge factor in the success. Bernard and his team are top notch. They were efficient, knowledgable, very experienced, and they made the whole experience a smooth process. Everything was cleaned up at the end of every day. No issues or surprises. Bernard took the time to explain each aspect of the project and made sure I was satisfied. And the finish carpentry work was above expectation. The new window install technique they employ is superior to a reno install. And even the security service rep who came afterwards to reconnect the alarm sensors commented that the extra steps Bernard and his team took made his job a lot easier. The biggest advantage for me was that Long Life took full responsibility for the job end to end, versus other quotes that specified separately what the window manufacturer did and didnt cover, and what the installer covered and didnt cover, leaving me with gaps in the middle. Having one org take full responsibility made the premium paid more than worthwhile. I wish all house reno firms would model themselves after Long Life.
While energy savings alone won't pay for this, we have noticed a significant reduction in cold air drafts through the house, and also a noticeable reduction in outside noise, so comfort level has been a welcome benefit.
