Additional Notes

Complaint: Hello - We called this place to receive an estimate for a window and they sent someone out. They mentioned nothing of a $65 fee for measuring the window and added it on later. This place is literally less than a mile from my Mothers house. So they added the fee on later when she went in to order the window and they refuse to remove this fee from the bill.

Desired Settlement: We ordered the window and paid them for that I would like to have this fee returned to me.

Business Response: To whom it may concern,

We in fact do give free estimates, but we do them based on us installing the job. However, if a customer calls in and tells us that they're going to install themselves, we always tell them that there is a $65 measuring fee (for using our measurements and having a tech go out).

In this particular case, this customer did NOT mention anything about installing themselves. So therefore, they were not notified of the measuring fee. You have to take into account that anytime we send someone out for an estimate, we are paying that technician their salary for the time taken out of their daily schedule (which could be utilized on an install job, not a free estimate). The $65 fee is basically paying for the expenses included in going out. We are fine with giving free estimates because at the end of the day, the customer has the job INSTALLED by us and we make our ends meet.

I hope this clarifies this situation. If there are any further concerns, please feel free to contact me.
