We had Ecowest replace 12 windows and a skylight as well as install a new patio door system for our 24 year old house. We are extremely pleased with how the installation and renovations went with Ecowest! We received 4 detailed quotes from 4 different local window companies and Ecowest’s quote was very fair and reasonable.
Our window replacements were not typical because two of them involved increasing the original window widths by 2 additional feet and another involved increasing the height by 1 foot. These modifications required significant changes to the original structural framing supports as well as to the window headers. After the drywall was removed it turned out that a plumbing pipe was in the way of where a framing support had to be moved to.....it was a tight fit, but Ecowest promptly brought in one of their plumbers and had the pipe moved. Also, the cut-out in the ceiling that was required to move the pipe was expertly repaired and refinished by one of Ecowest’s drywallers.
When we moved into our house 7 years ago we had an old bathroom skylight that was not properly sealed and installed and seemed to always have condensation on the glass surface. We have had several carpenters and roofers come take a look at it over the past few years and no one seemed to have a reasonable, cost-effective solution. Ecowest brought in Peter specifically to work on our skylight. He reframed and raised the support for the skylight, put in a new skylight, and re-shingled the roof where he did the repairs. Our bathroom is now warm and free of drafts as well having a beautiful new condensation-free skylight.
Perhaps the biggest change Ecowest did for us was replacing our old kitchen door with a 10-foot Westeck Lift and Slide patio door. This required the complete removal of our old kitchen door, an old kitchen window, and the complete removal of one of our kitchen walls. Ecowest also brought in one of their electricians to move our old electrical outlets and light switches and also to install new pot lights outside on our patio. Ten people showed up the day the Lift and Slide patio door was installed to work on this, and both Moe’s and Jeff’s window crews took great care to ensure that the entire process went quickly and smoothly with outstanding results! Each and every one of Ecowest’s staff, from the owner Aaron all the way through to every one of the window install crew, were exceptionally polite, personable, and a pleasure to deal with.
We are enjoying the new modern look to our house, greater insulation from the outside temperatures and noise, and also the increased natural light from the 10-foot Lift and Slide patio door. Thank you Aaron, Matt, Joe, Moe, Jeff, John, and the rest of the Ecowest staff for your meticulous and expert work on our house. We look forward to working with you again in the future!
