Apex Energy Solutions sells a window manufactured by Alside and is carried by 70% of the window companies today.The main window sold by Apex Energy Solutions is the Sheffield or UltraMax by Alside. This particular window Apex Energy Solutions has renamed Series Signature 8000. Don't be fooled ny the fancy lingo and made up names of certain parts of the window.


Apex Energy Solutions lied to us by telling us they employ their own installers. This is another misleading scam and tactic used by Apex Energy Solutions. Installed Sales Solutions is a division of Alside and can be found at any Alside local office or lacation in any of the near by citys they operate in. Each in staller at Installed Sales Solutions at Alside is subcontracted out and gets a 1099 at the end of each year.


We later found that Apex is currently paying $169.00 for each tripple paned double hung or 2-lite slider (Series Signature 8000) with Low Emissivity and Argon which meet the tax credit. To install each window Apex Energy Solutions is charged $79.00 by Indtalled Sales Solutions by Alside and covers all supplies needed to install the window including coil wrap (G8). Total Apex Energy Solutions pays$248.00 per windowinstalled and sells thethem for$650.00 per window. We found other companies selling the exact same window at$350.00 with exact same options and ratings (U Factor, SHGC)which is how you can measure a windows performance.


Apex Energy Solutions will target neighborhoods that they deem "need to be more green" or "need energy solutions" which is how they start the scam. They knock on the doors if unexcected homeowners daily pitching thier selves as "Energy Solution Consultants" or "Energy Specialist". They changes these titles from door to door. They will then send another Energy Solution Cunsultant to your home, this will be a much more experianced representative who then will go through your home using buzz words that will make you feel as if you are going to save a bundle on your next energy bill "your home needs their energy solutions" which is "windows". This more experienced "Energy Solution Consultant" mill more than likely pull up in an Audi. They will tell you they want to make your home a "Market Home" and how they want to display your home "the firat home in the neighborhood" to have their Energy Solutions. Now they are going to give you special pricing because of this too! $600.00 per window...They normally price a triple paned window installed with all supplies included around $500.00 to $700.00 or whichever they can sell you at.


Apex Energy Solutions is making around $250.00 to $500.00 profit per window installed. How many windows do you have in your home? 90% of customers in general who purchase windows replace them all. The average home has 8 to 10 windows. Apex Energy Solutions profits around $2,500.00 to $5,000.00 per customer! Not Bad for company who scams 60 to 70 homeowners a month per location or office grossing a WHOPPING $3,500,000.00 per month in profit all by just knocking on doors in your neighborhood and selling "Energy Solutions".


Now it makes sense why Michael Foit Owner/President owns a Huge Home and Audi with a Lamborghini Engine under the hood. Shawn McCain is doing to bad either they have decided to part waysfrom each other and split up the officees and franchise out other locations for around $200,000.00 a pop.


If you tuly want a better price for the exact same windows; Google reputable companies that are registered with the BBB and Angie's List by searching "Windows" on Google. Remember 70% of the companies out there carry this exact same Alide window. You will find these companies charge around $300.00 to $400.00 per window and employ their own installers, saving you $200.00 to $300.00 per window...That's a lot of money.


I wish you the best and hope your read this before you make your final decision...


Remember Google "Windows" and get three to four estimates to get the best deal.

Hmmm...sounds like a disgruntled competitor to me. Way too much knowledge for the average homeowner; how did you find out all their overhead costs? Did you factor in other overhead such as marketing, insurance, service follow ups, taxes???? No, you did not. As for purchasing the same window, or any vinyl window, for $350, maybe the window itself, but installed? No you didn't. This is not a scam Mr. Whine Simpleton, it's called running a business. It's called taking the motivation to start your own venture and having success. There's no way I would trust a legitimate 'contractor' install windows in my home for $300 or $400 because you get what you pay for; poor product performance due to poor installation from a company that can't afford to service you in the future or even stay in business for very long. I don't work for Apex however, I am in the replacement window industry and it pisses me off enough to respond to a false and misleading posts such as the ignorance you posted. Maybe they get such a competitive price on their product due to volume commitments? These sub-contractors you paint in a negative light are actually participating in a factory backed F&I program; who better to install your windows? Just so you know, $600 is a fair price to invest to have a high performing replacement window properly installed. You, sir, are a jackass.
