Description

I am Larry Bindel, the owner of First Place Windows. I've been involved in the residential building and remodeling business for over 30 years. I started this business with the intent of being the best in the industry. We have built our business around treating everyone the way that we would like to be treated. In an industry that is filled with high pressured sales tactics. We like to stand out above the rest. Who likes to be pressured into a price that is "only good today." In today's market, buyers are more educated. They want to consider all of their options. We believe that after considering all of your options without being pressured, you will make the best decision for yourself. We offer 5 different window lines, not 1. Each one is meets a particular need. We will assess your situation and give you a fair price on the window that most meets your needs. Our installation is the best in town as well as our customer satisfaction after the sale. Give us a call....

We have an addition in back that we have not used as often as we would like. When I was talking to Larry about new windows, he suggested a patio cover. He had it put in within 2 days and his contractor also set it up so that runoff from the roof would drain to the side of the yard with the best drainage (we had drainage/flooding problems whenever there was heavy rain - the patio did the trick thou...

I live in a mid-1960s home near the SA Airport that had the original single pane windows in them. Our bedroom windows would rattle whenever a plane was landing or taking off. Additionally, our AC and heating bills were high because we were losing cooled air and heat during the summer and winter months. Now, we have double-paned windows that keep the outside heat outside (where it belongs) and the ...

We were EXTREMELY happy with the work done by Larry and his team. What started as a plan to replace a few windows turned into a rather large project of replacing all the windows and re-siding the entire house. We shopped around prior to going with First Place Windows and found Larry's quote to be the best value, but more importantly we trusted him and found him to be far more knowledgeable than th...

This was the 2nd time we used Larry and First Place Windows. He had previously done a rather large window/siding job on our home and we now needed to have our shop re-sided and new windows installed. Once again, Larry did a phenomenal job. His attention to detail is stellar and the crew always showed up, worked hard, cleaned up and left things in good condition. The finished product was very profe...

I reached out for a quote on around June 11th. I setup an appointment to get the quote on June 12th. We received several other quotes and Larry’s was the lowers but I liked the fiberglass windows better. We ended up going with Larry because he said they could get the windows in 2-3 weeks. We made the decision that weekend and Larry said he would come back out first thing next week. I didn’t hear a...

Great Company. I had them replace windows in 2013. The installation was very professional and on time. The service after the sale was also above expectations. I will use them again when the rest of my windows needs replacing. Larry is a great person to work with.

My home is 93 years old and I still had 18 original wood-framed windows, that were single-paned, leaky and so loose in places I had vines growing through the cracks…plus our utility bills were out of sight! After asking around, going to a couple of local high-end window display stores, checking with the usual do it yourself suppliers and spending three or four hours online doing research, I ended ...

Overall the project was well done. The time frame for completion was a bit longer than anticipated--8 weeks from the time we signed the contract to final completion. Some of the problem with completion may have been out Larrys' control--getting parts delivered in a timely manner. Larry and his crew are professional, courteous, friendly, and definitely want to have happy customers. We are pleased w...

We bought a home that had been a rental. It had the original 20-year-old windows which were not in good shape and there were no screens. We had two companies come out to give us a quote on replacing the windows with double pane windows. The first company sent a salesman who tried to say he'd go talk to his boss and get us a better deal. We never heard from them with a quote. Larry Bindel, the owne...

I just called them and they say that they can't take it off since other members have given us reviews in the past in this category. They said that I do not have any paid advertising under skylights, so it shouldn't hav...
