It was a bit of a fiasco. The first time they were supposed to come, we diligently cleared everything out of the kitchen and dining area, only to receive a call that the window order had been mixed up. One window is very long as was to be three double hung windows, and the smaller window over the sink was to be a big pane with two smaller double hungs on the side. They switched them! Ugh. So, they had to be re-ordered.
Three weeks go by. Nothng. I call. Miraculously we get a call back in two days that they are ready. We schedule the date. We clean everything out- and they call again to cancel because the installer is sick. Great. Normally I am very understanding about this kind of stuff, but in this case, I was just ticked off. Mostly because it's already getting cold here, and I wanted to ge them in before we had to have gaping holes in the walls for a few hours during installation. Making it worse, Chris is scheduled to be out of town a lot over the next 2 months, and there was no way I was having it done without him here. So, I called and gave them the ultimatum- have it done by this day or cancel the contract. Well, that got results! So, Before:
We're not crazy about the new ones over the sink. The casings are too wide. We both think they look cheap- which they weren't! We have three other windows like this in the house- 2 in the laundry and one in the boys room. However, when we do replace them, they will three double hungs, just like the other new ones in the kitchen.
