 Re: Champion Windows

Author: Patrick (199.97.118.---)
Date:   

We got a quote today from a local Champion rep for 10,000 after all the discounts and probably another 400 when he talks to his manager. It's nothing more than what happens when you buy a car except I can see what I buy here. Most of the 16 windows are 36 x 73, which are larger than most. We chose this route because it takes 1 to 2 days and no it isn't part of a larger order and to do it ourselves would cost half that.

That said, the biggest draw was the warranty. We could have done it ourselves, but how good would the quality be compared to a professional? They also guarantee it for life and they have been around for 50+ years. Now take Schuco....great windows but done buy a subcontractor? That means you have to hope that the subcontractor doesn't close shop. What does Schuco guarantee? The quality of the window or the quality of the window + the labor? A lot of companies guarantee their product, but not the labor. So would I have to pocket the labor cost of replacement? Champion knows their product, so wouldn't they do a better job than ABC Company installing Schuco windows? Add that Schuco is more expensive and that's why I chose Champion.

BTW....we had a price and they were $2K less and they never knew our price. Who cares about a sign....I had sod put in 2 years ago and the company staked one of those in our yard at no discount!!
