Question DetailsAsked on 5/27/2016

Is LEI Home Enhancements on Angie's List? What might you have to say about or would you recommend this company?

I am considering replacing 24 windows in my home. I want to be sure I am dealing with a reputable company. I am under the impression that they are listed on Angie's List. They did mention in Cincinnati, though I don't know if that makes a difference.
I will also be changing from wooden windows (I live in an older home) to vinyl windows. Do you have any information on vinyl windows vs wooden ones?

Are listed in West Chester, OH - so not close to Cincinnatti - closer to Columbus and Cleveland - but still more than an hour away from each, you would have to contact them about whether they service your area. Here is their profile page -

On Window materials - you can find a fair number of comments on different window materials in the Home > Window link in Browse Projects, at lower left. My preference - if you maintain the house paint and use good quality paint, I would expect wood to be the better product choice. For lower maintenance, vinyl. For lowest (near zero escxept lubrication and occasional seal replacement) maintenance but generally somewhat lower energy efficiency and more tendency to interior condensation/icing - aluminum.


While material type does make a difference in lifespan, especially if a material that needs repainting periodically to protect it, the biggest factor is how well the water barriers are put into the rough opening and tied into the siding, so you don't get water penetrating the window area of the wall, and a reputable experienced contractor who knows how to do it right, because a lousy contractor can screw up the best product, whereas a good contractor can get a good to excellent result out of all but the lowest grade products.
