Windows failed. made numerous calls and sent several letters and finally got someone to come out. Agreed it was a bad window and I had a legit warranty. Never heard anything back and started calling and sending letter again - all

At the Home Show they promised a free no obligation estimate. First guy came 30 minutes late. Then refused to give estimate because I wasn't willing to commit to one of the options he gave me and because I wasn't willing to say when I

We made the mistake of inviting Dixie Homecrafters to our house for giving us estimates on windows. The presentation was supposed to last 90 minutes. Three hours later we still had not gotten any estimates or seen any of their window products. They tried to push their diamond barrier insulation on us instead. Their initial quote was about $6,000. Eventually the number came down to about $4,000 if we signed the contract that day. We refused and asked them to leave.

Today I looked online for whole sale prices for diamond barrier and similar products. The price is about $200 for 1000 sq ft. Dixie's salespeople told me that installation takes about half a day. Therefore I am guessing that their labor cost is about $200 for the job. That makes their total direct cost about $400. Basically, they have the stomach to hike the price up about 1,000% !!! What a deal! These types of companies will eventually go out of business. We who understand how these high pressure sales work and are smart enough not to fall for it have a moral responsibility to keep sleezy companies like Dixie Homecrafters away from those who are more easily duped. Please keep on spreading the word and send Dixie to the trash pile where they belong.

Pros: May learn something

Cons: Mostly waste of your time

Came over at 5pm on Halloween night after promising would only be there for under an hour. Stayed over 2 hours. Very very high pressure, must buy on spot, prices only good that night, must call references on spot, was insulted when we said we needed to research product. Price went from $8,000 to $5,000 in 30 minutes. I was making dinner and feeding the kids to get them out the door for trick or treating - AND HE HELPED HIMSELF TO DINNER so he could stay longer and pressure us! I finally had to tell him how unhappy I was with his tactics.

I contacted them for a quote for their Gutterguard product. They use all of the old tricks in the book, trying to drag the whole thing out as long as possible. After measuring my house, the guy sat in his car on the cell phone for 30 minutes drinking a Coke while supposedly writing a proposal. We were given a list of references we were supposed to call during this time. His "5 minute" presentation with the qoute dragged on for 45 minutes. Overall, the entire painful process lasted almost 2 hours. The quote we were given was ridiculous ($6,000 for gutters for a modest house). Of course, if we made up our mind right then he told us he would cut us a deal. He gave us a monthly payment, but was not able to give any terms. The suggestion was to place an order, and talk to the finance company the next day. When I asked him how long we would be paying $116 per month, he said "until it is paid off". For all I knew I would have been agreeing to pay this for 30 years. When we told him we would not be buying, he got very upset and claimed that it was because we did not like him personally. What a weirdo. Then he said that he had to call his boss for the next appointment, and he proceeded to sit an additional 10 minutes in my kitchen supposedly on hold with the phone to his ear. I had to make him leave my house. When he left, he would not leave a brochure or the list of supposed references. Do not use this company. Do not get a "free quote from them". The sad thing is that there are proably nice old people and unsophisticated people who get pressured in to them. Do not use them. Do not use them. Do not use them. I hope I made my point clear....

Pros: If you are lonely you will have someone in your house for two hours

Cons: Sleazy salesmen

I needed a new roof and gutters so I called a bunch of places for estimates. This place refused to give a quote to anyone but me (the homeowner) while every other place I called had no problem leaving the quote with someone at the home. Also, they insisted I be there to attend the hour and a half "presentation". They were very argumentative and finally I just said "if you can't just give me a simple quote this is not the right company for me". I don't understand why anyone would use these people. They don't have some kind of miracle gutters that I need to have presented to me for an hour and a half.

Pros: Will call and harass you.

Cons: Scam.

Dixie Homecrafters installed GutterGuardians on my entire home, after I initiated the process by calling to have someone come give an estimate. I have no problem with the gutters or the original service we received. Since then, however, I have been completely turned-off to the company due to their overbearingly annoying telemarketers. I don't mind a telemarketer calling; I am always polite even when annoyed at a call. However, I received a call from Dixie Homecrafters during which the telemarketer was very badgering, and would not end the call. I don't hang-up on people, so he continued to badger me for approximately 10-15 minutes, despite my repeated efforts to end the calI by stating that I would not set up an appointment (for a free estimate) during the phone call. Eventually the telemarketer raised his voice at me and ended up hanging up on me. At least I still can say that I still have never hung-up on a telemarketer, or been impolite on the telephone. Too bad Dixie Homecrafters can't say the same of their marketing techniques.

Pros: GutterGuardians solved our leaky gutter problem

Cons: Handling telemarketers afterwards
