Budget Exteriors – Just spent nearly 3 hours with a rep getting "educated" on replacement window...the presentation turned in to a high pressure sales push to make a decision on windows within minutes. When I wouldn't be bullied into a sale, the rep became angry, but did leave. Now I'm worried about follow up after reading the previous reviews...... I agree with all the negative reviews...DO NOT do business with this company!
Worst business I have ever encountered!!! Beware!! – Budget Exteriors deceived me into signing into a contract with them because they said not acting quickly would result in more damage to my home. When I tried to cancel the next day they told me I couldn't cancel even though they provided me cancellation paperwork which states you have 3 days to cancel. I would have to pay 25% of the cost as damages. The man on the phone said they would take me to binding arbitration where I would lose and also have to pay their fees. A week after me e-mailing, calling, certify mailing my cancellation paperwork they mail me stating that they believe I am trying to cancel my contract after the cancellation period and that now I would have to pay 25%. I contacted the list of departments below and they folded quickly. Later when I checked with other businesses to get the work done I found out Budget Exteriors was trying to charge me 2-4 times as much as competitors.
Please do not do business with them. Find somebody legitimate that isn't going to try and take advantage of you. If you are having troubles with this company contact:
-Better Business Bureau
-The office of the Attorney General of MN
-MN Dept of Labor and Industry
-Federal Trade Commission
-Possibly a personal attorney
Unwanted calls! – I have never done business with this company, but they cold called me twice today within the span of 2 hours. The first time they asked for my husband by first name. When I said he was at work, they asked "Is this the Mrs.?" I asked "Who is calling?" They promptly hung up on me. I tried calling the caller ID number back, but it was just a busy signal. I called my husband and he said he never even heard of the company.
When they called back the second time, they again asked for my husband- "Is ******* available?" I again told them that he was at work and then asked them- "Where did you get this number anyway?" Again, they hung up. I tried calling the number back again and this time it rang about 5 times before someone on the other end picked up and hung up again. When I tried calling after that I was again met with a busy signal. What kind of company doesn't tell a person which company it is or how they got the number unless they have something to hide?!!?
BEI - Bloomington – We had a contract with Budget Exteriors but declined to go with them after signing. They worked with us to resolve this.
Horrible! – I am so sickened by the way this company treated our home. After I signed a contract and discovered I was being ripped off I tried to cancel. I recieved a threatening phone call from Kenneth Thompson (owner) who told me he was going to sue. Later I found out that half the company are convicted fellons. Including the sales person that came to my house. I think it is my right to be aware of this! I warn you DO NOT GO WITH THIS COMPANY!
The so called good comments where deffinitly written by someone from the company to save there reputation...no way would they treat a homeowner with respect!
AWEFUL JOB< SHINGLES ARE FALLING OFF OUR ROOF OVER CHARGED – Well let's just say this Company if a complete joke! Never ever will we go with this company again. We paid 4X the amount it should have cost us to put a new roof on only to litereally have all our shingles falling off. Not to mention non english speaking workers to ask questions to. Company has been saying they will come back and fix our roof but has yet to show up. This case is proven by the shingles company stating short nailing and angled nails. Insurance agent stated the same issue. Budget is a RIP OFF!!!!!!!! DO NOT USE THEM EVER!!!!
1 of the worsest companies in the twin citys – I want to warn people about this company and just how bad it is. This company will try to sell windows or siding to everyone for 5 times what they should. They will tell you that windows for your house will range from $10,000 to $25,000 and since most people have to get financing for the work they have their own mortgage company to do it for the customer. The owner Kenny got sick of mortgage people telling the customers that they were getting screwed and decided that only filing judgements for work that was never done wasn't paying off. What I mean is that if you sit down and sign ANYTHING with this company they will sue you if you try to get out of it. A couple of the sales reps are currently in jail due to drug charges and another one that worked in the mortgage side that the owner thought could run the company was so drugged up that he was jumping off his roof thinking he could fly. What a lot of people don't know is that if you sign papers from that point on they are allowed to go after you for that amount and this company will order the product even after you tried to cancel just to sue you. They marke up the product so high that even if they get only half of what they charged you they are still paying for the product and then some. This is a company that at the end of the day you will regret ever answering the phone so save yourself the trouble! And I also noticed that each of the positive comments appear to have been written by someone that knows that company and the product. I wouldn't be surprised if the company wrote the comments since they also have a message from the owner.
Awesome Job, highly recommend!!! – I really appreciated the fact the sales person spent the time in order to fully educate me on the product and how it would benefit my family. The insulation has made a huge difference. We saved over 35% on our energy bills this year over last. The other really neat thing is how the house is more evenly heated. The workers were very easy to talk to and ask questions. Great company to work with. I have already recommended them to three of my neighbors who have also done business with them. If you are looking for a professional insulation company Budget Exteriors is the company to go with.
Great Group of people – My wife and I had this company replace our old windows with energy efficient replacements and we are very happy with their products and their staff. The installers were professional and on time and the sales dept were enjoyable and honest. We have and will continue to refer our friends and relatives.
Completely satisfied with Budget Exteriors – I have done quite a few projects on my home, as we bought it as a fixer upper, and boy was there some fixin up to do, but we are getting there, thanks to Budget Exteriors. We are totally sold on there company and products. Everyone was so professional and kind, and a few funny people too. Salespeople always answered our questions with no hesitation. Production was very on the ball for keeping us informed as to when they were going to be there to do a 2nd measure, and install them. When the crews left, they left no debris in the yard or for us to clean up. We still have some more fixin up to do in our fixer-upper, and you can be sure that we will be calling them. They really do keep there customers happy.
