Few years ago they offered to replace my 11 windows for $13,000. I said wow and took measurements went to Lowes and ordered them. I installed them in 2 days myself $2500. have had no trouble to date. Almost wasted over $10,000.

yea, same here...sent card in for free estimate and they called the next day to tell me that I "won" a chance to get an estimate!! whatever...I just wanted someone else to do all of the measuring to be honest with you!!! LOL so for an entire week, someone from barrier would call trying to change the appointment day or time... when they called on the day they were supposed to be there and asked to bump it up about 3 hours, I finally had to canx. Apparently this is their M.O. and there arent any repercussions for losing an appointment. TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE!!

the figures in this story are true as I had 12 windows to get replaced and was quoted 13000.00 also, needless to say I didn't get it done. About 3 months later they called me back with an end of the year promotion and now the windows installed would only cost me 5500.00. I had obtained a quote from Lowes and the same windows uninstalled would cost me about 3500.00. so beware they are scammers

i have worked for both lowe's and barrier and i must say, that while barrier windows are expensive, they are not the same animal that lowe's sells. barrier sells "gorell" windows. check out gorell.com and see the difference. the windows i installed for lowe's are far,far below the quality of the windows i installed for barrier. i think you have to consider whether that quality makes a difference & how much that's worth.
agree

12 windows = 24 k, I said no. Price goes to 14k , again no. Now the price = 9k. No no no. No honest company would do this and how does one price w/o the customer actually choosing a design / style / color , I don't think so!! scammers !!!

Well we were scammed by them! Their windows suck! The gas between the windows burst then it looked like frost on the windows all the time..we had a warranty and they never showed up and quit calling us..so we were stuck and after unloading 15000.00 beans we couldn't afford even cheap windows..bunch of scammers..and I agree with whoever said that ladies voice is one of the most annoying I have ever heard..I agree!I would stay far away from them..Oh,and the sliding glass doors we got from them weren't installed properly and they wouldn't fix those either.

Needed siding for our house, thought " what the heck, let someone else measure" Guy shows up w/o a tape measure. Price is $53,000 "retail", then it goes to $31,000 and after sales rep leaves, "office " calls me to inform me that manager has further lowered the price and I informed sales rep that I want your best price the 1st time. STAY AWAY FROM THESE GUYS!!!!!!!!!!

My husband and I did have barrier install siding, went from 19,000 to 9,000 they play good guy bad guy. We were happy with siding, only came back for 1 of 2 requests. We also had 2 windows, 1 kitchen and 1 bay window. The bay window did not stop the cold winder wind. We were putting plastic up over our new 2,000 bay window. WHATS UP WITH THAT! Its to bad companys like barrier need to be persistant in order to get into your house . Humm maybe we need comercial companys and health insurance both monitored.
