Testimonials

Satisfied customers of The Home Depot had the following to say:

  • ‘Would definitely work with this team again. This was an excellent experience from beginning to end. It was particularly important that the installation team successfully coordinated their work with our stucco team so that we had no duplication of effort.’ - NZmultifuel

  • ‘Comparing the experience here with other window contractors and their products - I got a solid product (Simonton 6100) sold by a very easy going sales person and installed by a tech who managed to keep intact all 100 years old trim and jamb pieces for reinstall, completed the job ahead of schedule, and left my house cleaner than when he entered it. Do your homework on windows and make sure you understand precisely what you're getting like you should with anyone. These guys did not disappoint.’ - Ian

  • ‘The process was very easy and the consultant did a great job on helping us choose a window for our need. The only issue we had was communication with the installer and getting a correct time for the window to be installed. The installer did a great job installing the window and we are happy.’ - Burt

Customer Service and Response Times

The Home Depot’s customer service is available online, by email, or on the phone. For general inquiries, it is advised to contact them via the website, either online or by email. But if you need to contact them urgently, you should call the customer service number, which is 1-800-466-3377.

When you want to arrange a quote, you fill in the online form to schedule a free in-home consultation. You will then choose what windows you want, and the specialist will provide you with a quote there and then. When you are ready, they will have your new windows delivered and schedule the installation date at a time that is convenient for you.

Warranty

The Home Depot states on its website that it offers a lifetime warranty on labor and accidental glass breakage, and up to the double-lifetime warranty on hardware and screen. However, it offers no further details on what exactly is involved in the warranty on the website, because it works with other companies when providing and installing windows. Therefore, each individual window's warranty would depend on who is supplying the window.
