Reviews in Chicago to Install Peephole

Preferred Window and Door
5.0
Had two appointments, One to discuss proposed services followed by the installation date. Both went well. We were advised in advance that difficulties might occur when resetting the security system. Both times the workers arrived on time, or a little early. Since then we did have the security company come out to adjust the connections. The security tech praised the professional installation work and quality of the products supplied by Preferred. The good work included special placement of the peephole site. The door looks great! Provides a super barrier from wind and is sealed very well, keeping out the cold.

They were perfect and on time. Cleaned well, there was no sawdust where they drilled. I am very picky, and I thought they did a great job.

The installer and his crew arrived at the scheduled time. It was an extremely hot day. The heat index climbed to over 100 degrees through the day. I showed the installer where the door was to go and where the windows were to be installed (The 3rd floor of a townhouse with a west view and no shade.) When I showed the installer the windows, I mentioned that this was a full tear out. That meant all of the existing wood framing needed to be removed and new framing put in. He thought they were just suppose to sit the window on top of the existing framing. He called and received the news that in fact, it is a full tear out. He was not a happy man. (He was not unprofessional with me, but his crew caught a lot of his frustration.) He had to go and purchase wood for framing each of the 6 windows. The measurement of one of the windows was slightly off. The brick had to be shaved ever so slightly. He had the company call me to tell me this needed to be done. After the windows were just about finished, the installation of the door began. Everything was proceeding nicely it seemed until they got ready to put the storm door back on. It would not close when the new front door was closed. The door knobs were in the same spot. The installer wanted to leave the storm door off. That was not an acceptable solution for me. Apparently he called the company and received a suggested solution. They raised the storm door. They added a piece to the bottom of the door to keep air out and make it flush again. It was a nice piece of patching. If you did not know there was a piece at the bottom, you would not be able to tell. It was a long exhausting hot day. They finished at 6 pm. After the installer went over how everything worked, he was finally able to smile and wish me a good day. I offered him the same. He said, what I already knew, "I was not prepared for the full cut out of those windows". Two items that were not related to the install were issues for me and the reasons for my "B" Quality rating. First the lock on the front door was to be keyed the same as the lock on the door being replaced. I provided the key number. That did not happen. After the company contacted the builder of the door, they learned that the new lock could not be keyed the same as the old lock. They offered to try to make things right so I would not have so many keys. I told them that I liked the front door so much that I would probably order a new back door and then the locks for those doors could be keyed the same. The second issue was the mail slot. The outside flap that the postman would use did not open without some difficulty. I thought it was stiff. One day I caught up with the postman and asked him why he didn't drop the mail through the door, and he said that the slot wouldn't open. Sure enough, the top on the inside had dropped down and kept the outside flap from opening. I tried taking the screws out, but the frame was sealed on the door. So, I got some duct tape and used it to try and keep the top from dropping down so the flap would open. Every couple of days I had to press it .

NO SHOW for a confirmed appt (Tuesday, 8/9/16 at 8:00-9:00AM) on a written email from them. No call received to let us know they were running late or needing to reschedule. Attempted to call to see if anyone was on their way--straight to voicemail. If it was too small of a job, it shouldn't have been accepted in the first place. We have two children under 2 years old--not easy to coordinate.

Serviceman was very professional, friendly, and punctual. Very skillful. Louver door I had bought was too large; he cut it down to size and hung it. Couldn't even tell the door had been sawed shorter before hanging. Consulted me on more work I want done. Will be using this company again.

I needed to install a peephole and knocker in my brand new steel door. It was a small job, but someone had to do it so I called The Fix It Guy. They usually require a minimum of two hours for a job, but in this case they only charged me for an hour, came promptly and did an excellent job. I couldn't be more pleased.

We had our exterior entrance door replaced due to some shoddy work from another contractor (not this one). Hank replaced the old steel door with a fiberglass door with sidelight. He did an excellent job on the door. The door needed painting to match our exterior colors. The door was going to be painted a forest green color. We also needed the door knocker, door bell, peep hole and storm door installed, which was part of the original work. Hank said that we needed to pain the door before he installed the storm door or the frame would rot if installed on an untreated surface. We called back Faith to see about painting it and we needed to fill the painters entire day with work, so we gave him the door and surrounding framework inside and out as well as the baseboards that are along the stairway to the upstairs. The painter never came out to see the work, but Faith relayed the information to the painter on what was required and I talked to them as well. Painting day came and Marek, one of the painters arrives and asks my wife why we are painting the door. He wouldn't paint it if it was him. He kept telling her he wouldn't paint it if it was him. He would leave it white. But, we still had to give him other work to do since he was already here and still was required to be paid. After some back and forth with my wife, he was going to do what we had hired him for and that is paint the door. In the first place, there was no need for the arguments at the outset of the job. That gave us a bad taste in our mouths from the get go. He didn't do the painting but his other painter did. The other painter was saying that we needed tinted primer to be avaialble for him. We purchased the paint ahead of time for everything and asked told Faith that we had the paint and the type of door that had to be painted. No where in the conversations did any type of primer come up before the painting job. Anyway, the other painter seemed to settle down a little and started working. Well then he dropped the brand new lock handle set when he was taking it off the door and scratched it. Later, he was arguing with my wife about filling a hole with some wood filler because he didn't think it needed it. He told her and I quote, "why does it have to be perfect". Well, nothing is perfect, but if you are hired for something and the customer asks to do something that is in your scope of work, you do it and don't talk back. The other painter was very unprofessional. I was at work that day and I was communicating with Faith on the issues and told her that I wouldn't be paying her the full price because the painter scratched our brand new lock set by dropping it. Later, that day Hank got involved and went to our home to see what was going on. He was able to take care of the handleset entirely and fix it. No longer was it scratched. Basically he took it completely apart replaced the scratched piece and put it back together like he was the manufactuer of it! Hank saved the day! He took care of the other painter as well by setting him straight. Marek later came back at the end of the day tp collect payment and did apologize to my wife, but both painters were unprofessional from the start, which there is no excuse for. Also, Faith claimed "they treat your home like it is their own they are so meticulous with their work", well that wasn't the case at all. They weren't any different from contractors we encountered in the past. They just wanted to get paid and leave as quick as possible. If anyone did go above and beyond it was Hank and I would hire Hank again in a second! At the end of the day, everything got done that was agreed to be done. However, the other painter missed painting some spots on the door frame and trim. I told Faith this and she offered for Hank to complete it when he returned for the storm door install. I told her that I would do it myself. This is not Hank's responsibility since he is a carpenter and not a painter. It should have been done originally, but I didn't want those painters back in my home because of the awful first impression they made on us. I ended up finishing their job. Lastly, I will never hire those painters again, but will be giving Hank any work that he is willing to do for me in the future. I fully recommend Hank for carpenter services. I had to rate some of the services as lower than an A because of the awful experience with the painting. I had to average the services together (painting and carpentry). If I just received Hank's services then all A's would have been submitted, but due to the painters, something less is being submitted. They ruined the experience.

Ron Burns was my sales man. He came out, explained everything in terms I could understand and answered all my questions to my satisfaction. Ron went as far as looking at a problem I was having with another entry door and set of windows installed by another not as reputable company, and offering his suggestions to the problems. When the installers came out, there were originally 2 of them but one was called away on a family emergency. The second stayed and made sure the job was finished even though it meant an extended day's work for him. He was extremely pleasant an helpful. Since the installation, two issues have come up with the doors, a missing peep hole and cold air coming though the bottom of one of them. I called the issues in and they promptly sent someone out to fix both. GREAT FOLLOW THROUGH!!!

Recent Review: Great. No problems. I needed a new storm door for my side door. Mark came out and gave me an estimate for installation and a brochure on storm/screen doors. I purchased the door myself from another company. When the door was ready Mark picked it up and performed the installation. Mark did a great job.

Recent Review: It took 2 months to get the doors that we ordered, but that was fine with us. We knew we had ordered quality doors and there were other people who had ordered doors ahead of us. The team of men who installed the doors were very professionable and looked like they were experienced in door replacement. When they were done putting in the doors they cleaned up the area of our front door inside and outside.

Recent Review: Work went well. The installers are good solid professional men who know their jobs. I did have an issue with two doors not quite fitting to the threshold and the owner, Dan, came out and re-measured the doors again and made two new doors so that they would fit as he promised. Great company to work with. The installers also reminded me that they would be glad to come out if any doors need adjustments.......Wow!! This company knows how to put out a great product and follow it up with excellent customer service....wish I had more doors to replace!

Recent Review: I called around 2pm and was able to make a appointment the same day. I was kept informed to when the repairman would arrive. They arrived and replaced the broken spring as promised the same day. Excellent service I highly recommend.

Recent Review: These guys are 100% fantastic! They came out to replace the bottom rubber seal on the garage door, which the old one had some damage. They also performed a door tune up. At first they couldn't get the new seal to completely close the gap between the door and the garage floor. It turned out my door had either been improperly installed originally (by a different contractor) or the door no longer fit correctly when we had our garage concrete floor replaced. Whatever the cause, Aladdin Doors completely readjusted the door, including moving the rails and moving up the door tension-er. Now the door completely seals to the floor and it's installed properly now. Then afterward they gave me a call to make sure I was 100% happy with the job. I would absolutely recommend these guys and use them again in the future.
