Reviews in Albany for French Door Installation

CRAWFORD DOOR & WINDOW
1.0
I am beyond frustrated trying to get a door panel replaced. It failed just out of the warranty period, so I have to buy a new one. Getting return phone calls from this company is a nightmare -- nobody ever calls back. And all I am trying to do is place an order! Will update when the transaction is finished, but so far it's been about two months with no luck. I was told by the window guy in my local big box hardware store that also carries Pella that they are famous for not returning calls. Finally getting back to this review over a year later. I did finally get my French door replaced. The installer was fine -- efficient and polite -- and the job went well. We will see if it holds up. I hope so, because even though I had to replace the whole door panel, I don't get a new warranty since I used my old jamb and framing. Many of my other Pella windows are showing signs of problems (e.g. black marks inside the glass). I would avoid Pella windows and this company specifically at all cost.

Joe was very quick to return all phone calls emails and text messages. Charlie and Mitch were great onsite working in 90 plus degree temperature . Joe kept everything on time and on budget. He was the last contractor we interviewed his A rating is well deserved.

Had Mark come in to replace the rotted out wood under the french doors leading to the backyard. Mark did an excellent job with the entire project. He walked me through and thoroughly explained what he found during the process, and his proposed repairs. The quality of the repairs was top-notch with full attention to detail. I've already scheduled him for some additional work around the house, and would not hesitate to recommend him.

The experience with Bennett was wonderful from the initial estimate when the job supervisor met with us and went over our options for fixing our problem, to the gentleman that came out to do the work. He was a real pleasure to work with, and I hope to use Bennett again in the spring for some tile work. We are thrilled with the quality of the work, and the professionalism of everyone at Bennett.

This is the second time I hired Jim for a job. He is not competing on cost and is a little more expensive than most other "one man" contractors, but he is meticulous and is a perfectionist who does great work and makes the extra effort to do things right. In my opinion, well worth the extra dollar. Jim handled much of the job himself: taking down a bad roof, installing a new one, sealing up the outside roof to prevent leaks (which was beyond the scope of the contract - again, he's all about the quality), and installing all the doors and fixtures. He hired an electrician he works with to do the wiring, and subcontracted with a local sliding door company for the door -- which was a custom job -- and I wound up with a great office space, which is important because I work from home. I'm thrilled with the result (I'm trying to attach pictures but can't figure out how...).

I replaced my very tall built in refrigerator with a shorter french door model. J.D. sheetrocked the space above the new refrigerator so it looks like it fits well in the kitchen. He also removed upper and lower cabinets of a dry sink in an alcove and made that space into a pantry with adjustable shelves. The wall had to be built out and a door was installed that matched the doors in the rest of my house. Finishing work was done in both spaces, molding along the floor, and around the door of the pantry. J.D. was easy to work with he had great suggestions and listened to what I wanted. He was very professional, showed up on time and the work was high quality. I highly recommend him and will definitely use his services again.

I wasted my time talking with these guys. The estimator was an hour late for the appointment; at least he called. He said he didn't realize how far away I was. Didn't he look at a map? A GPS will should give driving distance. He wouldn't quote a price for the drywall; the best he could do is time and materials ($3500 for a taper for a week). He told me they could not tape the seam between the ceiling and wall; the wall would move and the tape would fail. There was no tape in the original drywall. After 40 years there were a couple of small cracks. Clearly he wasn't interested in the drywall work. I never did get even an hourly rate for sanding the floors or the electrical work. The estimator said my best bet was to put in new stairs. In fairness to him, I didn't know what was under the carpet. I had another contractor come out for an estimate. He felt the edge of the stairs. Because the edge was rounded, he was pretty sure that the wood under the carpet was good enough. At that point we pulled enough of the carpet to verify that the treads were good. As we walked out to look at the barn, the estimator from Bennett told me that the only reason he came out was to prevent a bad review. He was clearly in a hurry to leave. Sorry. If someone wastes my time, I'm going to write a bad review. He had no interest in the barn repair, and told me I might have to tear it down. The second contractor immediately focused on the construction of the anchor that prevents the barn from sliding down the hill. I am well within the advertised service area. If a company doesn't want to travel beyond a certain distance, they should make it clear in their service area or verify the address before scheduling an appointment. I can understand a contractor not wanting to take on too big or two small a job. I cannot believe that the job was too small or too large based on some of the other reviews or that the job requirements exceeded their skill set. There was also the potential for a kitchen and bathroom remodel, but I won't be calling these guys again.

This was a story of persistence and ultimate success. Some snafus in the ordering process caused some delays, but overall the crew and management were fastidious in their attention to detail and quality. There were some surprises of long-term water damage when they removed the chimney, which meant that the project had to be expanded from the wall up into the ceiling. We negotiated this expansion at each point, and there were no problems. A door arrived with the active panel on the wrong side. Bennett was quick to re-order and even negotiated a discount for us, since the error occurred at the factory. We appreciated the integrity of both manager and crew. Reasonable price overall for the work they did. I'm very satisfied with the outcome. The crew did a wonderful job of trim and sanding, leaving me with perfect surfaces for staining and painting. I've scheduled additional work with this company.

Professionalism: -They were willing to drive to our location, others were not. -They carefully listened to what we wanted, commented, questioned and then gave an accurate estimate of costs, supplies and timelines. The cost estimate for the job was right on target. The amount and type of supplies were accurately calculated. Timelines slipped a little when Mike and Rob would not accept a product that did not meet their high standards. -They arrived on time and ready to work everyday. Either Mike or Rob was on the site the entire project. - They conscientiously prepared the surrounding area before work each day: Laying plastic over bedroom furniture, covering the floor with tarps, covering carpeted stairs and wood floors with protective tarps/plastic. - They cleaned up after each days work. Additionally they have a cleaning team come in post job and do a thorough cleaning. - They kept us apprised of the progress on a daily basis. If they didn?t need to be there they weren?t there wasting our time or theirs. - They caught our mistakes; we selected the wrong color of paint, they noticed it immediately, brought it to our attention and helped us select the right color. They explained when something we wanted wouldn?t work/look good and worked with us to reach the best result. Workmanship: Their workmanship was superb. We were aware of what this work entailed having completed some renovations on our own in the past. - Their timing of the work was flawless. Whether tiling, window replacement, plumbing or electrical work there was no down time except for the previously mentioned product issue. Reliability: As stated above, they came when they said they would and worked tirelessly until the day?s tasks were completed. - Efficiently completed the punch list, although that was very small due to their diligence during the project. - Returned several months post completion to fix a minor plumbing fixture issue. Bonus: They offer a contractor?s rate vs. commercial rate when you use their suppliers, who were all very professional, personal and helpful. - Their cleanliness on the job - Their personal friendliness. We enjoyed them while they worked with us on the project. We have made two new friends. - They obviously love the work they do. It is reflected in every aspect of the job. Problems: The only problem is finding other projects for them to do in our house.

Bill Coons, the owner, came into our situation with so much immagination, energy, and enthusiam. He helped us find ways to accomplish the project that saved a substantial amount of money compared to the other estimates we got. He saw other possibilities for things that we wanted accomplished. He was very involved in helping us and taking the project to its fullest potential.
