Rate Your Windows! (And Share Your Lessons Learned)

Windows are a big investment, and while they may look great on paper, how well do they hold up once installed? Do they meet your performance specifications? How responsive was the company to answering your questions and responding to complaints?

The GreenSpec team has already combed the world of windows available in the U.S. and Canada for manufacturers that can meet our tough performance specifications.

Now we need your help in providing ratings based on your actual experience as a customer--things like like whether the window failed the year after it was installed and the distributor won't return your phone call, or whether the manufacturer easily met your specs and installation was a dream. Please take five minutes and provide confidential 1–5 star ratings on windows you have experiences with.

Our team will compile your ratings and share them in aggregate with anyone who participates in this poll, as well as subscribers to GreenSpec and BuildingGreen's other publications.

Take the poll now and rate your windows!
