Last week, Fieldstone installed our new vinyl windows.
Now that I see how great new windows are, I wish we had updated them five years ago when we bought the house! We waited (I was ok with them). We waited (can't we restore the existing windows?). We could have changed them when we did the basement, but we waited some more (I am tired of messes, no more dust!).
Once we ruled out restoring the wood windows, I stopped dragging my feet. I wanted to find an installer to take care of us in 2012. We found Fieldstone on Aubrey and Lindsay's blog, and honestly, that was good enough for me*.
Sure there was a bit of dust and mess, but only for three days. Fieldstone vacuumed and cleaned up at the end of each day, and it was easy enough to wash the floors and move the furniture back. The baby was able to nap through the noise. There was plenty of room for us to play in the kitchen, basement and outside and stay out of the installer's path.
I am only lukewarm on the colour. Wait-let me revise that! I adore the colour on the back of the house, the front of the house is only so so. Now I see how desperately we need to find yet another contractor to come in to paint the peak and to change the eaves. There is a tiny chance we can pull something off this fall. I am not going to get my hopes up! (Who are we kidding, my hopes couldn't be higher). Otherwise, we will fix up the rest of the exterior next year.
Of course, I wouldn't be posting this if I didn't want to know what you think!!! I am all ears!!!
