Just want to let everyone out there know that not only is the sales pitch a scam, but the windows are one too.
The advertising home sales pitch is just a ploy... there is no advertising budget, its just a way to make you feel like you are getting a good deal... The reality of it is that the windows are so over priced, that they can drop thousands of dollars.
Next, the people who come to your door are actually sales people, not advertising reps. They are on comm. and they dont have any other advertising homes in the area... Its all a lie!!!
The basic goal is to get you to sign the first night, and they will do anything... They will tell you that they can finance you at any price... Well if you get 17,000 dollars worth of windows at 150 dollars a month... thats alot of financing... how many years will that be??? plus the usual rate is over 10%... how is that worth it...
Another thing is dont be blow away by the glass... Several other companys produce the same glass for less money... They say the miracle glass is one of a kind... its actually just a standard low-e glass... in the sample kits they bring to the house the glass is actually thicker then what is really used... this is why you cant feel heat through the glass during the demo... Also the glass breaks with ease... dont be fooled by the nail!!!
Things to watch out for:
1- Custom windows- no such thing... a double hung is a double hung... there isnt a difference in size between 34 and 36 inch window... ever company does a standard frame.
2- Glass- ever piece of glass has a pressure point... it all breaks so dont be fooled...*****Miracle glass does not met code as tempered glass!!! it costs alot more!!!*****
3- Warranty- the warranty is only trans. to the next owner... Not for the life of the home...
4- Dont be fooled by give aways... its built into the costs
The glass is not anything special... Other companies make the same product...
