Mudroom mirror

I had the pleasure working with VEL to install a full wall height mirror in my mudroom. I chose VEL because its excellent reviews, and VEL didn't disappoint and delivered excellent customer services and great product for the whole process. Kim always kept me updated about the product ordering/installation process, and Randy and another installer did a great job installing the huge mirror. I will definitely recommend VEL for all window and glass related products, and looking forward to using their service again in the future.

Basement window replacement and new basement windows

We shopped around quite a bit and VEL windows were the most knowledgeable about building codes. They were very helpful while selecting windows. We were impressed with the speed of completion. We had two new basement windows cut, with new wells dug: having the wells dug and the cement cut took one day and the windows were promptly installed the next day.

Quality work, excellent service!!

We booked with VEL a second time to replace our bonus room windows because they were so awesome the first time when we needed to replace our living room window. I found Randy and Kim fantastic to deal with and the staff was extremely knowledgeable and experienced. We had a dead wasp nest near one of the windows that Aaron spotted and Randy went above and beyond by removing it for us.

We would highly recommend VEL Windows.

Steam shower glass install

Aaron & Chris did a perfect install on my basement bathroom steam shower glass. They were prompt, clean and along with Kim extremely knowledgeable about the product and my requirements. I will definitely be using them on future projects.

Replace sealed units in even windows and repair locking mechanism in one of them.

My wife and I were tired of the frost buildup on our upstairs windows during the last 2 winters, so we went out for suggedtions and quotes. VEL sent Aaron and Chris who suggested that we replace our sealed units with double-glazed units complemented with Low-E film. We accepted VEL's quote for the job and were very pleased with the job they completed just today. Very professional and helpful with advice regarding the window lock.
We would definitely recommend VEL to anyone needing high quality window work.

Egress window installation

Kim and Randy from Vel Windows and Glass were great to deal with. They were always available to answer my questions, and very prompt at getting back to me with any further inquiries I had. The workers who completed the work were very professional, on time, and did an exceptional job. I was also very satisfied with the price that they provided me ($500-$1000 less that quotes from given by other companies). I would highly recommend Vel Windows and Glass to anyone who is in need for window or glass service.

Shower Glass

Kim was great to work on the info/quoting/communication side. The installers came to do measure and advised on some changes that needed to be made on the slope of the shower curb and a notch to be cut out. The advice they gave was great.

On both the measurement date and the install date the installers came on time, which sadly is a rarity in construction. VEL was a refreshing change! They installed the shower glass, and cleaned up after they left.

I was really impressed with the professionalism and care they took with our shower. Their craftsmanship shows!

60s Bungalow Basement Window

As part of a renovation of a 1960s bungalow, I wanted to update the windows in a basement bedroom to ensure it was up to code. When the window company that was replacing the rest of my windows in the house told me they didn't do egress windows, I asked my network if there was anyone they would recommend. The name VEL kept coming up. After calling VEL, an installer came out and measured our opening and gave us all of the info we needed for getting our plans drawn up and permits in order. When they came out to cut the concrete and install the window, they were quick, professional and easy to deal with.

New Windows

The whole experience with VEL Windows was excellent. So far I have used them twice and I plan on calling them again for my future window needs. First project was enlarging and replacing my basement windows to meet egress requirements. The whole process from the quote, window well digging, concrete cutting and window installation was taken care of and all for a reasonable price. Other companies request that you dig your own window wells or hire your own concrete cutters and that greatly increases the price and complexity of using other contractors even though their "window installation" quote may be cheaper. VEL windows really took care of everything. They even matched the concrete filler they used to my 60 yr old foundation. Not to mention they did this work in the middle of winter.
Second project was replacing 2 main floor windows as well as repairing a large, 5 section, bay window that were all prone to condensation and frost. At first, we were prepared to have to replace the whole bay window but VEL windows took a good look at it and only replaced 2 sections that were in dire need and just replaced seals and silicone on the others saving us thousands of dollars. I really appreciated the honesty and not being taken advantage of as they easily could have just unnecessarily replaced the whole thing. They were also extremely flexible when I had to last minute change the install dates.
Save yourself the time and at least call them to get a quote for your next project. I know you will be impressed by there professionalism and knowledge and I am sure you won't be disappointed by their work when you select them. Thanks Kim, Randy and everyone at VEL!

Thank you so much for your very kind words! We love it when customers' come back to us for work more than once and there is no better compliment we can receive! I'm so glad we were able to save you some money with the bay window and I'm very happy it all worked out well with the sealed units and the new windows (and the basement window!). We appreciate your business and the lovely review :) ~Kim
