We also install new or replacement windows. Replacement windows offer several benefits, including energy efficiency and ease of use when opening and closing. Our new vinyl windows are quality products that stand the test of time. They block out noise and keep your heat and A/C inside your home.

    Truly sad experience. Marshall ordered the wrong glass, installed the wrong glass, cashed our check, took 2 months to get him to come back ON HIS schedule, he would not communicate with to tell us when he would fix HIS mistake, and the new and CORRECT glass has an even worse silicone job filling the gaps on the entire frame to cover for a terrible installation. Nice guy, terrible communication and even worse quality. I would have been better learning how to do this myself. Sad Marshall, really sad. Be more than happy to show you the transcripts of our conversations also if you think this was anything other than a total waste of time and $180...for glass I had already removed and prepared.

    Thank you for complimenting Lightning Glassworks on being nice. We stronly disagree with the other parts of the review; one just has to look at the other 40+ reviews below to see Lightning Glassworks work ethic. The installation was completed with quality workmanship, on time, during the busy season. There is no discount provided for preparing the window frame, nor was one ever offered.

    Marshall quoted me based on my pictures and description, but since he wanted to make sure that his estimate was accurate he offered to come out to confirm the price. It was a special order glass piece for my door for my private personal training studio in Littleton - JRT Fit. He was professional and even made the glass install better than the one he took out (no airspace cracks when there were two before it broke). Thanks Marshall!

    Provided a very accurate and competitive estimate to replace a broken 24 X 60 window pane without seeing the window or location. Visited my property quickly to provide a firm written estimate and performed the work a few days later. The total time from bid receipt to work completion was just over a week. Very happy with their service and would definitely use them again for window work.

    I was supposed to have replacement glass ordered and have them install it. I received the initial contact, they came out and got a quote to me very quickly. However, my order was broken on the day of install. They were to order another unit and that was a month ago. After emailing them and waiting 2 day for a response we made arrangement for them to come the next week to install. NO SHOW NO CALL!! So after several calls, emails and even texts I get no response. Very disappointed with all the good reviews and I received the poorest of service. Taking my business else where.

    Marshall came to measure the window that needed replaced and I never heard from him again. Called him, left him emails but ZERO response
    Marshall B. Aug 18, 2015

    I do apologize. This was completely unacceptable on our part. We did come to measure your windows. Around that same time, one of the founders of our company passed away. This man was also the father-in-law to the owner of Lightning Glassworks and the grandfather to the most of our employees. As you can imagine, this funeral caused considerable pain and for a short time our regular workflows were interrupted. However, the funeral has occurred and we are back on track now. Lightning Glassworks is extremely sorry that we overlooked your concerns. Please accept our gratitude for contacting us and leaving your feedback. If there is some action we can take to rectify this and improve our reputation with you, please call us immediately. Thank you.

    Marshall, Called me and told me that he could go measure the window that evening, which was on a Tuesday. He had the window cut and installed on Thursday of the same week! His quoted price was very reasonable. Due to his professional and expeditious service, I would definitely recommend Marshall, Lightning Glassworks & Screens.

    Had a small job of the top half of a single hung double pane window to replace. Checked several local glass shops who were considerably more expensive and back logged for weeks. Marshall was able to stop by in a day or two and saved me money. He also fixed 8 screens. Will call him again.

    Let me tell you a little something about perfection, its impossible to find. Sure, I bet you already knew that but what you didn't know was that the Bradshaw crew at Lightning Glassworks is as close as it gets to perfection. While a lot of companies can do a job, Lightning Glassworks gets the job done fast and does it right THE FIRST TIME! They are knowledgeable, capable and honest. That's what I call a business worthy of 5 stars!
