HOMEOWNER REVIEWS SELECTED FROM SURVEYS COLLECTED:

“We've used them before. I think the quality of work is really good—the quality of product they have to offer and recommend. I also feel very comfortable and feel like I have a high quality product. I mostly just deal with the installation work that they do. Customer service is good. We had a couple of questions afterward, and they came out and checked and explained. It turned out nothing was wrong, but they gave a clear explanation of what was happening. This one was a sliding glass door replacement. A few years earlier, they did windows for us. I'd give Murphy's an A+.”

“They just do great work, and they are good people, and they are doing more work for me in the future. They replaced a door for me. I would grade them an A+. They are top notch. They are doing more work for me in a couple of weeks; I have windows on order right now.”

“I had twelve windows installed; four were mismeasured and had to be reordered. They were, indeed, finally put in—twelve windows. One of them I can't open, because if I do, I can't close again, because it was misinstalled. It took over a month to finally get it, and it is less than the windows that I can get in. I would grade them a D+.”

They had to figure out how to get it to the top floor, and I can't remember how they did it, but they did it. I would give them an A+.”

“I liked everything they did. They did a great job. It was real good, and I appreciated them. They replaced the windows. I would give them an A.”

“They did a good job. They replaced windows. Three years ago, I did basement windows, and last year, I did first-floor windows. The window that they installed three years ago was leaking, and I had to call them back to fix it. They did come and fix it, so I'm happy with it. I would like to give them an A.”

“It was quite a while ago. It was great. I'm very happy with the people who came out and did the work. We had a couple of issues after the work was done. There was something with the windows where we got condensation or something. They came right out. They were good. We're real happy with them. We had a full house of windows done and also a door. I just found out about them through word of mouth. I would say they're an A.”

“They just had a good installation. They just did the one window at that time. I picked them, and it worked out well. I guess I would give them an A.”

“I liked that they were very thorough, they did a good job when they were here, and they followed up. They replaced windows and doors. This was a full-house thing. I would say they earned an A.”

“There was nothing that I disliked about them. It was a sliding door. They were recommended by my condo management. I didn't have to call them back for any problems. I would rate them as an A.”

“They did pretty much everything that they promised. It was a quality product they put in. They knew their stuff. I basically had windows done. I had a lot of rotted wood up on the fascia and the soffits. I had to have a lot of wood replaced. They did three rows of shingles also. They handled it. I would give them the top rating.”

“He came out, measured everything, and told me their price. They put it in, and everything looks nice. It was just windows. This was the full house. They were just in the area. An A rating is fine for them.”

“They were very quick with estimates and weren't trying to upsell or get us to do something else. We asked them what we could do, and they gave us an estimate really quickly. They got the work done without any hassle. They were doing windows. We had the upstairs done. Everything was taken care of before they left. I would give them an A rating.”

“Murphy's was awesome. I would definitely say good things about them. They did windows for our whole house. The owner came out, and the customer service was awesome. The quality of the guys who did the work was phenomenal. I don't trust people, and I actually left them alone in my house—that's how good these guys were. It was really cool.”

“The entire process was really good. Everybody that I dealt with was great. The owner came out to do the quoting, and I was happy with what they recommended. They did half of my windows one year, and then the next year, I had them do the other half. They were awesome. They're A+.”

“I liked everything—from customer service to installation. They did a really nice job. This is the second house I've used Murphy's to do windows for. They're an excellent company.”

“They screened in my balcony, and they did a phenomenal job. They kept up with everything. Every time I called the office, someone was able to help me.

I would refer them to anyone and everyone.”

“My experience with Murphy's Windows & Sunrooms was OK. They did the windows, and they look great. I'd give them an A rating.”

“I would give Murphy's Windows & Sunrooms an A grade.”

“He's done about seven jobs for us so far, and he's going to do another job for me. Last time, they did windows. He did the job relatively on time and on budget, and you can't ask for anything better than that. He kept in touch and let us know exactly when he was going to show up, and I had a pretty good idea of how long it was going to take. A neighbor of mine who fixates on every detail and follows up on every imaginable thing checked Murphy's out before he used them on his project. This guy always criticizes everything, so when he said that somebody actually did something that he was pleased with, I knew I had a keeper. I'd give them an A, A, A.”

“Murphy's installed a whole new window system in my three-season room. They were really fast at returning calls, which was really nice. They should get an A.”

“They replaced windows, and they were professional, courteous, and tidy. I had dealt with them previously, and they're local. I would use them again, and I'd rate them as an A.”

“They replaced all of the windows and sliding glass doors in our house. They had a wide selection of products that we could choose from, and they did a good job on all the work. They were great and very knowledgeable. The person met with us, gave us the proposal, and then followed up through the whole process. It was a good experience, overall. I'd give them an A.”

“They did windows, and they did good work. I had called another company, but they couldn't do the job, so they recommended Murphy's. They earned an A grade.”

“It was the sun porch, and the time Murphy's finished in was pretty good.”

“They put windows in upstairs, and I was very satisfied. The owner was very cooperative, very nice, and very knowledgeable. There was a little bit of an issue, and he came right back out with his guys and fixed it. I had no problem. I thought they did a great job, so they get an A in my book.”

“What Murphy's did was amazing. They installed our new patio door and renovated our sunroom. The whole team was great. I'd give them an A++.”

“Everything was great, and I'm happy with the window. They came exactly on time, so it was perfect. I would give them a very good grade. If I ever need any other windows, I will be using them again.”

“Murphy's installed a patio door for us, and they did a great job. It was a huge space, and they did it very quickly in terms of getting materials and getting it installed. It was awesome. I would give them an A.”

“They did my doors and screens, and I had a great experience. They did excellent work. They deserve the highest rating.”

“They were very professional. The owner is very friendly and personable, and they did good work. If we had an issue, they came out right away. We didn't have any kind of trouble with them at all. It was a very good experience for us, and they did excellent work. They put a Florida room on our house—they put in the roof and one wall. The work they did matched the existing siding and window trim perfectly. They did a really good job. I would give them an A+.”

“They did our house about three years ago. They did a great job. They did a very good job, they were timely, they were prompt, and they addressed any minor issues that came up immediately. They installed windows on my entire house, and everything is still looking perfect today. Last year, we called them back, and it turned out to be a minor fix. Not only did they send a technician out, but they sent the head of the company out to look at it. One of the window locks was stuck, and they fixed it. They had no problems about coming out and doing it; they were very responsive. They should get an A+.”

“The windows are wonderful. I wasn't here for the install, but my family said that they were very good and quick. After everything, they did exactly what we wanted. Everything was very satisfactory from start to finish. The work is holding up very good. I'd rate Murphy's an A+.”

“They did the work quite a while ago. It turned out excellently. I liked the way they got the job done quickly and effectively. Nothing could have gone better. They brought out the windows and installed them, and it's holding up very well. Murphy's is an excellent company, and anyone considering their service should be confident that they'll do a good job. I would give them an A+.”

“They're a great crew that does a good job. The end result looks good. They replaced windows, and they look fine; they also did a front storm door. I would recommend them to other people. Everything went perfectly smooth, and there were no issues, so I'd rate them as an A.”

“They've done some windows for me. I've had them out four times to do different windows, and their service was great. The gentlemen that installed were very professional, and I would definitely recommend them to anyone. They have come back to repair windows for me that they installed, but the windows were about 20 years old. I would give them an A+.”

“Murphy's did work for me a couple of years ago. They were timely, clean, and efficient. They did about five or six of my windows. I heard about them from a family member who had used them in the past. I haven't had to call them to come back out for any reason at all. I think their work is A+.”

“They're here right now, and they're doing a nice job again. It was a very nice installation, and the quality of the windows was very good. I'd give them an A+.”

“They did work for us. They did it very efficiently, and it was very neat, clean, and timely. We wanted to use someone local, and it's a pretty local business; we'd heard other people talk about them. They were just much better than other companies we've used. The quality of the product is better, and the way they did the installation was much better. They deserve an A+ rating.”

“Murphy's Windows & Sunrooms did work for us previously. They replaced our windows, and they replaced a door for us. They're in our neighborhood—right down the street from us. They were very friendly and very informative. I would say they're A+.”

“We had a little problem with them in the beginning regarding siding that we had done, and we weren't perfectly satisfied with it. He turned around and kept up with it until we were perfectly satisfied. They did siding, and they replaced every single window in the house. Everything has looked good since then—we've had no problems. I would give them an A.”

“They did a great job. The quality of their work stood out. The technicians were good, and so were their salesmen. I would rate Murphy's Windows & Sunrooms an A+—it was good.”

“They were very professional, they did very good work, and they paid attention to detail. They didn't leave until the customer was satisfied. They replaced windows and sided my house. They did an A+ job.”

“I liked the product, and if I needed something or I needed them to come back out, they were very responsive and fixed the problem. I had a problem with the door closing in the winter, and they fixed it. Murphy's gets an A+ from me. I was happy with the product. They installed quality doors, and the installer did a good job.”

“They did work about twenty years ago, but they're going to be doing some more work again. We had some windows put in over three visits. They gave us real good customer service. We had a couple seals go bad in the windows, so we had Murphy's replace them. They're a family-run business—not a corporation. They know us real good, and we know him. The owner's real friendly, and he always returns his calls and all that. He's a real talkative, friendly guy, so you get to know him, and he's a real good guy. I'd rate them A+.”

“The work Murphy's did for us was fine. Everyone was very polite and nice, and I have no complaints. I think the job they did was A+.”

“They were very quick with the work, and they had it taken care of. The guy that came out and did the work was very nice and had good people skills; he was just very nice to me. They did very good work, and they were able to do it in a timely manner instead of giving me the runaround and calling me back and saying, 'Oh, we're still waiting.' They came, took a look, went back, got the piece that they needed, and put it in. I would rate the company an A+.”

“They were very neat. The workers that were here took away all the old stuff. They did a pretty good job, and they were quick. If I had questions, they answered them to my satisfaction. Somebody in our building had work done by them, so that's how I heard about them. I would give them an A+. If we needed more work, I'd call them again.”

“They did the job, and they did it right. There was nothing that I thought should've gone differently. They installed some windows, and it looks good. They are reliable. I'd give them an A+ grade.”

“It turned out fine. I liked the way they handled coming in, doing the estimate, and coming to do the installation—everything like that. The installer came to discuss what was going to be done—from the trim to the colors and everything. They did a bay window and a side window, and then they installed two side windows in the back part of the house. The work is holding up good. I'd recommend them and give them an A+.”

“Murphy's did some work for me previously. They went above and beyond to get it in on time. I was having a party, and they were able to meet that deadline. I was really pleased with them. I would say they deserve an A grade.”

“They did some window work for me. They did a good job, and they were professional and friendly. I'm satisfied with their work; it was good. I haven't had to call them to come back and fix any of their work. I would give them an A.”

“We just had all of our windows done by Murphy's. They did a very nice job. They did their work very well, they were very pleasant, and there wasn't a problem. They did all of the windows, and we were very happy with them. I would give them an A.”

“They came and put the windows in. I don't have anything negative to say about them. We used to feel cold air from the old windows in the family room, but we are able to sit down there now comfortably, so I would give Murphy's an A.”

“Murphy's made sure everything was done the way it was supposed to be done, and if something looked off, they fixed it and took care of it the right way. They didn't take shortcuts. It was a very nice, very good experience. They replaced the windows in our entire house in two different sets. One year, they did the back, and the next year, they did the front. We called them back once about a loose board, and they came promptly and fixed it. We had some problems originally through some contracted stainers, but they fixed everything very well and took care of it, and it was a reasonably painless procedure. I'd give them an A.”

“They did some work for me. They were efficient, and they cleaned up behind themselves pretty good. They replaced some windows on the front and put in some double-pane windows. I would give them an A.”

“Murphy's was fine. They're great people. They put in a front bay window about a year and a half ago. I had a new roof put on, too. I haven't needed to call them back since the work was done. I would give them an A grade.”

“They were in and out, they came when they said they would, and they were very efficient. I haven't had any problems with the windows, and they did a good job. I would rate them an A.”

“They've done work for me—they put in windows. They're professional, and the job was done efficiently. They're very nice to work with. I would give them an A.”

“Murphy's installed new windows for us. They showed up on time when they said they were going to show up, and they did the job they said they were going to do. It went well. I would rate them an A.”

“We enjoyed their work very much. They did the windows on the whole top level of the home. I wasn't here when they were doing it, but I heard from my mother and my father that everything was good. Everything went smoothly and courteously, and the windows are great now. I would say they're an A.”

“They did some window work for me previously. I like that I got new windows. Everything was fine. I would give their service an A grade.”

“They did good work and followed up well. The work they did was fine. They replaced two windows, and they look good. I would recommend going to Murphy's. I give them an A.”

“The representative for the company—I believe his name was John Oros—followed up with us, answered our questions, and gave us the quote and everything professionally. The workers were professional as well. They replaced over half our windows in our house. I would give Murphy's an A grade.”

“I can't give them a high enough rating. From the very beginning with the salesman—most people just don't follow up like that every step of the way. And the workers were outstanding. They couldn't have been friendlier or more professional, and the windows are beautiful on top of it. I'd give them an A+.”

“I've had a number of things done by Murphy's, and everything was perfect. Everything's superior with them, from the workmanship all the way down to picking and ordering the windows—that's why I always keep coming back. They put in windows all the way around my condo. They're A+.”

“Murphy's did a wonderful job. They put in three double windows, and they pulled out my air conditioner that was in the wall and put in a picture window. Everything looked beautiful after they had it done, and it's holding up perfectly. It's A+.”

“I worked with Murphy's on a bunch of projects—windows, porch doors, and a skylight—and they've always done a great job. They're a very good company. They have excellent customer service. I'd give them an A.”

“We were very happy. The workers had good personalities. They worked hard and were very down-to-earth people. There's nothing I thought they should've done better. They put in all the windows in my house, and they're holding up very well. I would use them again and refer them. I'd give them an A.”

“They did an excellent job. I liked their professionalism. They're extremely courteous, and they were extremely clean, considering it was wintertime when they put the windows in. They look wonderful. I would give them an A.”

“The work was really good. They were very pleasant to work with—very personable—and they got the work done in a timely manner. They were good. I liked them. There's nothing I can think of that they could've done differently. They installed two sliding doors, and they still look awesome today. I would say they're an A+.”

“Murphy's did a good job. They used great installers, and they did a wonderful job. They have a quality product and are very good people to work with. I would give them an A+.”

“They're nice people. The two workmen they sent out were just wonderful. They were clean and quick. They were good workers—craftsmen. They put in new windows and a new storm door. It was completed in half a day. I'd give them an A+. They do what they tell you they're going to do.”

“It was done cleanly and neatly—everything I wanted, I got. It was perfect. They deliver on everything that you ask for; you tell them what you want, and they'll figure out a way to take care of it. They're A+.”
