I wish I could give them 0 stars. I am currently trying to have a lein removed from my home because Homeview did not pay the wood supplyer in a timely manner and now the supplyer is now attempting to place a lein on my home. My contract is with Homeview and NOT the lumber supplyer. DO NOT USE HOMEVIEW!!!!

I have hired them twice. The 1st time I ordered a sliding glass door. They came out to install and refused to do it because there was a crack in the concrete that it would rest upon. We called 12 different contractors to hire to pour the little pad under the sliding glass door but the job was too small and nobody would come out, so we had to do it ourselves with our Seabee son (thank goodness he knew construction). We had no sliding glass door and just plastic up for several weeks until they brought the sliding glass door out again but it did not fit since we had to remove all the wood framing from the previous aluminum sliding glass door to poor the concrete pad. So the man went to buy wood, spent all day working and installed the entire thing crooked - the framing wood is askew. Furthermore, he installed the raw wood resting upon the concrete, which is an industry no-no since the wood will wick moisture from the stone and rot quickly. We left it as it was and then the door became harder and harder to open. Homeview charged me $60 for someone to come out to look at why I had to heave my entire weight into trying to slide the door open and closed. Another contractor I had for windows, did not charge for repeat visits to fix something. After two visits, the tech said he could find nothing wrong and that I needed to keep the track clean and sprayed with silicon. I reported them to the BBB. The owner called and was upset since he is on the Board of the BBB and this complaint didn't look good. He persuaded me to drop the complaint and he promised that he would make good on the sliding glass door. He sent out another man who found out that the door was warped. Now my old sliding glass aluminum door that was installed in 1981 was easier to open than this door. I was disgusted that it took a complaint to the BBB to get a person to agree that something was wrong with it. Homeview replaced the door and so far so good. Next, they asked to replace the remainder of my wooden windows and the salesman, Dennis, said he would have the installers fix the sliding glass door wood resting on the concrete and cap it as well (which should have been done). I agreed but they charged us $500 to put wood around a window. My husband didn't know how to do it, so he said OK. So, the people come out, they cap the trim around the sliding glass door but do not trim the bottom, so the wood is still resting on the concrete. Then they remove my wooden windows and take all the burglar alarm contacts with them. I ask them where are the contacts that were on the original windows and they said, what contacts. I point them out on the old windows and they say, we didn't know about this. This was the failure of Dennis - he should have informed us that we needed to preserve the contacts. Then I see that the $500 woodwork around the replacement window was raw wood, not primed wood and it was installed so that it is exposed to the elements. The apron sticks WAY out well beyond the standard. I don't know why an experienced installer would do it this way. Lastly, Dennis said that Homeview had built in financing. I assumed that they allowed you to pay 1 year same as cash or charge some interest, yet we received a credit card with the $4,500 balance on it. That was "their financing." The credit card was "negotiated" to have 9% interest while my others are at 4-5%. I called Dennis to let him know my problems. He made an appointment with us to see all of this himself and the day he was supposed to come, his office called and said he couldn't make it. He has never called us back. My alarm company will not even look at the windows without charging me $150 for a house call. I pay for free repair but they say that is only for normal wear and tear and some other company ripping out the contacts is not normal wear and tear. So, I am most unhappy. Both Angie's List and the BBB allow companies to pay them to get the A rating. You need to look at the content of the complaints and not the rating. I had a heart attack in 2010 and don't need the stress of arguing with that business anymore. Just thought I should warn people away from them - it seems like they are very limited in their construction skills.

This company is the worst. Don't return calls, Take downpayment and agree to do job then we didn't hear from them in weeks. Kept getting a run-around. Made appointments and didn't show up or call to reschedule. they kep pushing job out and asking if we wanted to get someone else. We said we would wait but let us kjow what is going on. Kept out downpayment for 6 weeks and did nothing. then they cancelled our contract and sent payment pack to us with a letter. shady company and no business ethics.

I have worked for Homeview contractors for almost ten years. We do millions of dollars worth of home improvements every year. We have close to 80,000 previous customers over the last 47 years in business. Sometimes, but rarely someone can

I see now why people are afraid to hire contractors.
We had Homeview come out to give us an estimate, I guess we should have said no when the guy said we could only get it in white.
They just showed up, no call ahead, and we're done
