Window replacement research
As the first-place winner as the top “Window Replacement” store in the Star-Advertiser’s Hawaii’s Best People’s Choice Awards for eight consecutive years, Windows Hawaii truly is the unsurpassed leader in the field and continues to build trust, one customer at a time.
Homeowners are reminded that doing the appropriate research prior to embarking on a window replacement project is a must to ensure customers aren’t burned by companies looking to take advantage of clients. Windows Hawaii general manager Mario Garcia stresses the importance of making sure companies are vetted by the Better Business Bureau (BBB), hold valid licenses and are appropriately bonded and insured to avoid risk to the customer.
“There are some companies out there that are not accredited by the BBB, yet they mislead customers to think they are,” Garcia says. “It’s important to check with various trusted sources — including the BBB, Department of Planning and Permitting, City & County records and social sites such as Yelp — to find helpful reviews and guidance during the process.”
Three years ago, Gary and Sandy Fujimoto upgraded the windows throughout their Mililani Mauka home as the original frames were rusting to the point where the windows could not open and close effectively. After two decades of living in the home, the Fujimotos replaced nearly 20 windows and some patio doors with Anlin’s Alii Extreme window series, which offers an array of benefits including premium noise reduction, exceptional UV protection, heat reduction, and easy operation and maintenance.
“After hearing a Windows Hawaii advertisement, we called Mario,” Gary recalls. “He came by, and that was the first time we met him; he sold us because he was so knowledgeable and is really a genuine guy. It wasn’t the cheapest option, but the products and his knowledge really convinced us, and put us at ease with this big decision.”
The Fujimotos laud Mario and his experienced team for their quick response times and attention to detail whenever any follow up or servicing is needed.
“To sell my husband on something like this is pretty tough, it’s not like going out and buying a television! But we were comfortable with Windows Hawaii,” Sandy says. “Jehnre and his crew came and made us feel at ease, they were very professional and clean, and I even went on Yelp to commend all of them. They were so polite, and during their three days here, they made sure to clean up and check to see that we were satisfied before they left.”
SunMatrix is a popular new feature of the Alii product line that provides four layers of low emissivity coating, which greatly improves energy efficiency. The main benefit of SunMatrix is its ability to block out 99% of harmful UV rays — a feat not offered by any other brand of windows locally, as Windows Hawaii is the sole source for SunMatrix in the state. The result is a cooler home that saves residents substantially in the long run as energy bills are lowered and possessions are protected from fading and sun damage.
Anlin’s unmatched true double-lifetime warranty offers a superb lifetime installation and product warranty on Alii Extreme windows for as long as one owns their home. Also included is a lifetime complimentary accidental glass breakage replacement feature. Couple this manufacturer’s warranty with Windows Hawaii’s installation warranty, and there’s no going wrong as the warranty also covers labor and installation.
