Great Job, 4/04/2014

First I want to tell you that the gentlemen who installed our windows are great! They were very professional, knew what they were doing, and neat. I gave your card to another neighbor. Thank you for... making this process easy.

Windows look great!, 11/15/2013

We had all of the windows in our house replaced and they look great. Randy and Chuck did a great job with the installation and cleaned up so it looked like no one had been there. I am planning on... getting a new front door and will use them again.

Real craftsmen

Jarett Tritt and Larry did a exellent job replacing a quad window unit in our great room. They were neat and got the job done in one day. I will use Home Improvement again and recommend them to my friends. Our salesman Phil was knowledgable and courteous.

exceptional work!

I had windows replaced in my home and not only was the product installed of great quality, the job they did was exceptional! The job they did made the rooms look new! They added better woodwork than what was originally in my home and they took the time to do a spotless clean up. My highest recommendations! Thank You!

Beautiful Custom Front Door

Home Improvement Resources replaced the front door on my 40+ year home. My new custom mahogony door is beautiful, just what I had imagined, and with a furniture finish. All the employees I worked with were very professional and I will use Home Improvement Resouces for my future projects.

Excellent Quality and Professionalism

I wanted to install Nichia siding on my house and change my bay windows to ones that were energy-efficient. Of the four companies that spec'd the job, Don Smallwood of HIR was the most knowledgeable. Additional-ly, I received HIR's comprenhensive quote within 5 days (vs.15). The entire HIR team (siding/window installers/and painters) did an excellent job. My neighbors say my (27-year old) house looks new. Don Smallwood, HIR project manager, also worked with me to customize a door for my patio. If you want a quality job, professionally done, contact HIR.

Excellent Service!

Called HIR for a Garage Door install due to the fact that they did such a nice job on a small project I had done back in ‘09. I’ve been impressed on both occasions…Roger and Ricky were my installers for this particular project and they were a pleasure to work with. Both were professional, courteous, and addressed all my concerns. I appreciated their attention to detail, removing some damaged wood which was not revealed until the job was underway. Inserting screws on the framework where others might have simply used a nail gun. They also took the time to place pressure treated wood under my existing inner framework to protect from moisture. All of this attention to detail is why HIR will get a return call when I contract out for window replacements next summer. Thanks again to Roger and Ricky for quality job.

Beautiful Siding!

I recently hired them to replace the siding on my house. They did a great job. Ian Dow was my salesman. It was a pleasure to work with him. He stopped by several times to make sure everything was going well. Their installers were polite and diligent workers. My siding looks beautiful. I got many compliments from my neighbors. I highly recommend HIR.

Extremely happy customer!

We hired Home Improvement Resources to replace our front door with a craftsman style door and sidelights. Don Smallwood and his team were very professional, detail oriented, reliable and provided top notch customer service. Our door has only been up one day and we have already had several neighbors stop to give compliments. The entire process went smoothly and was a great experience. I would highly recommend Don and HIR and will definitely use them on future renovations.

Wonderful customer service

I've never had to shop for windows before and Home Improvement Resources made it a pleasant experience. Even though my order was not a large on, they made me feel important to them and never did I feel as if I was being taken advantage of.

Outstanding!

I recently purchased a new home and contacted HIR to inquire about their services. Don came out to install new locks, dead bolts and Strikemasters to all the doors. I had never even heard of Strikemasters, which are metal brackets placed on the doorframe so that it cannot be kicked in! He was extremely friendly and helpful! And, we are working together again to replace the interior doors and the windows also. I would definitely recommend HIR to my friends and family! Great job! Thank you!

Doors plus Garage Doors

We recently hired Home Improvement Resources to replace our old flat 1 panel garage doors and an old leaking patio door. 2 companies were not interested in trying because the old fold up doors were built within a drop ceiling, making it very difficult to install the hardware & openers and the patio door was surrounded by rotted framing. They made it all look brand new at a very reasonable price. We will use them again on our next home and be glad to refer them to our friends and business associates. Thanks, Chico, Mike & Don.

A NightmareQ!

Beware if your installers are Rodney and Fernando. They installed many windows at my home, and that night it rained and it rained inside my home, the rain ran down the wall and to the hardwood floors which caused the floors to warp. The caulk ran down the brick staining it; they chipped and scratched the jacuzzi tub; and cut the alarm system. I called Tony about the leaking windows and his response was "we expected this to happen." They put a lien on my home b/c I wouldn't pay them until everything was fixed. BEWARE!

Home Improvement Resources replied on 06-22-2010

This home was leaking before we started the project. The homeowner asked our installer if he could recommend a flooring contractor to repair her floors the day we started the job. She also asked if we could do some temporary
caulking before her special order windows arrived to help stop the existing leaky windows which we did and at no charge. The porch previously leaked onto the front door,
windows and flooring We did scratch the tub and we paid for a full refinish. We did not cut the alarm system but did repair the broken wire that was within the wall a
foot from our window. A storm washed some caulk out and the installers came the next morning dressed in rain suits and spread plastic over the problem areas until it could be recaulked. We can’t inherit the previous issues with a house that had damage from a lack of maintenance.
The lien was placed after all was completed and a new balance was settled but payment was still not
made. It is the only lien we have ever had to place.
We have 68 reviews, please read the 67 good ones. Thanks

Great job! Love the doors.

Don Smallwood and the team at Home Improvement Resources did a great job! From the initial consultaion, quotes, scheduling and installation ..... everything went as planned. I would highly recommend them and would most definately use them again. The products they use were of high quality and their installer, Randy, was a PRO. GREAT JOB GUYS !!! Pricing may not be the cheapest but it was competitive and is a reflection of how good their work was.

Excellent Experience with Sash Replacements

Overall, our experience with RB was excellent. We had sash replacements installed for 27 windows, including two large fixed windows for bays. We had the outside brick and nose molding replaced on all windows along with sills for seven of the windows. We also had some other carpentry work done. Two crews led by Randy and Roger did a great job. They were very friendly along with being very considerate of our house (did not track mud and dirt in). If we asked about something, they immediately addressed it or made sure we were happy (only needed to do this a few times). Based on other blogs from folks who talked about horror stories involving window replacements, Randy and Roger provided the opposite experience. Behind the scenes, Tony worked with us regarding scheduling and Chris K. was very patient with us as we explored many different windows for quotes. Lastly, their bid was very competitive. To be frank, I originally didn't even thing about contacting Robert Bowden until a family member happen to put a bug in my ear about his excellent experience with them for other work. I had nothing to lose by talking to them. I would recommend that you at least talk to them about any of your home improvements.

Great from start to finish

I hired them to replace a door for me that had been leaking terribly under the sill because of rot and some bad planning on the builder's part. I had several people come out to give me a quote and they were the best price with the best service by far. I had to chase after the others to get an estimate, but these guys called me soon after the home visit, explained everything in detail, and were very pleasant when I had to reduce my order from 2 doors to 1 because of another home improvement project. The installer was very polite and the door no longer leaks! I definitely plan to use them again.

I had 2 windows that were cloudy because of a broken seal. They did a nice good of replacing them and cleaning up afterwards. It was a bit crazy sometimes with the phone tagging going on but it all got done in the end
