Description

Since its inception by co founders William Barr and Michael Strmac in 2002, Universal Windows Direct has lived by the philosophy of CANEI - "Constant and Never Ending Improvement". This philosophy holds true in all aspects of our business, from sales and marketing to installation and service and has catapulted UWD from a small, local home improvement company to one of the largest exterior remodeling companies in the country. Every one of our employees strives continuously to be the best in the business at what they do and provide our customers with only the highest levels of sales, service, and support. We think our company's history speaks to this goal and to the power of what we can accomplish by never settling. Universal Windows Direct of Columbus opened in 2016. Our products feature the exclusive UniShield brand and come with a transferable lifetime warranty on materials and labor. We are a fully licensed, bonded, and insured company and EPA Lead-Safe certified. In addition, a portion of every sale goes to support a growing list of local charities....

I had my windows installed April 28th, 2021. The installers had to leave before my job was completed because of the rain. However, they installed ALL of my windows, and only had the outside trim to complete. The installers were great, and did a great job. I called to schedule them to come back to finish the trim on the outside, but the Install Manager is a Flake. His name is Jacob. He promised to ...

Universal Windows totally ruined my mother's condo. She is elderly and trusted them - paying over $8,000 for new windows in her condo. After faulty installation, they immediately began leaking down the entire condo from the 2nd story windows down into the basement. She called and called and called but they refused to fix the windows and would hang up on her. When she asked them to come fix the lea...

I can't say enough good things about the service we received. Ryan C. came out to our home and was so thorough & realistic with us. It was clear he believed in the product. By the end of the evening we felt like we had made a new friend. We also had to work directly with Eric in customer service a few times to make changes to our order and the flexibility and friendliness we received was very appr...

They removed and replaced 12 old windows. They were clean, quick, and did a good job installing. I had to call them back to fix two problems (One window frame was bent and needed to be reinstalled. One window did not come with obscured glass as ordered). They reordered and installed the obscured glass and scheduled a time to fix the bent window frame.

Worst experience in 30 years of home ownership. Job not finished in 1 day as promised, then left voicemails with all levels of management for the next 7 days with no response. Outer walls left open for 7 days, with several storms. Finally was transferred to lady who does scheduling, who answered her phone, and started to tell me I needed to understand. I lost all composure, and told her my walls h...
