Window Comments

The window has clean lines and looks beautiful. The lock system is simple and safe. The balance system has worked perfectly since installation, seem to stand the test of time. Lifetime warranty is great security blank, although I have not had to call in the warranty due to the high overall quality of the window.

Window Grade: 5.0

Window Comments

Since my post on New Year's Day a few noteworthy things have happened: I received an apology from Soft-Lite representatives not making it down before the holidays and a request to come this week (today actually). The Regional Sales Manager and the Director of Technical Services drove about 4 hours this morning to review my concerns along with Mr. Hillebrand of Morris Energy Solutions. I was very impressed with their response. They were able to correct all the problems while here except for the bowed spacer sash which will be replaced and packaged differently for shipment. Their explanations for the root causes were honest and I believe they are correct. The three windows with the black “caulk” were corrected by removing the glazing bead and pulling out the offending black “blob”. The screen with the broken spring action was disassembled and reassembled to allow proper action. I have had a few hours since they left to reflect on their commitment to ensure the satisfaction of their customers. They informed me that the production team had seen and discussed the photos I had sent a few weeks ago. From the CEO down, all have shown a true pride in their windows and correcting the noted issues. In summary, they have actually done a remarkable thing...turned a bit of a critic into a fan. I learned that a lot of the frustrations I ran into would have been corrected by the installers during installation. Since the homeowner (yours truly) installed them, I found them and did not necessarily know how to correct all of them. Given the magnitude of their response to correct the issues today, I have to update my grading of both Soft-Lite and Morris Energy Solutions to “A”. I am not only satisfied but appreciative of their efforts and feel I can now recommend both Soft-Lite and Morris Energy Solutions. ---A Happy Soft-Lite & Morris Energy Solution Customer in Cincinnati OH
