5 out of 7 cranked windows all stripped. Can't close them. I paid a lot of money for these windows. Now what?????????

Has very poor installations. living room window was not even screwed onto studs, they had to redo it. Bedroom window was very loose, had to redo, bathroom window was too tight couldn't open, had to redo, door installed was leaking from window, had to get new one. Now 5 out of 7 windows won't close because teeth are stripped!!!!! What am I supposed to do. Bought a "universal" crank and it doesn't fit. I can't afford new windows and you don't change windows every 10-15 years.

Fix my windows, or send correct cranks and I will change. If you don't have cranks then change the window or give me a refund. Disgusting poor install. I'm 63 and have no money to change windows and why should I, they are only 16 years oId!!!'

DAVE MURRAY(FORMER OWNER OF PRESTIGE HOMES) IS A SCAM ARTIST !!! BEWARE

he did my siding and windows, it took him 9 months after i paid him to even start the job, the workers would miss days and wouldnt call to tell me they arent coming in and this was every week! they put in some windows crooked, and siding crooked, dave owes me 3,000 right now as i overpaid him and he wouldnt pay me back right away, he told me he would pay me back after the job was completed!! (as if i have to wait ) then when job was completed there was always some excuse why or he'd say he would pay me this day then ignore my calls! also they left all the garbage in my yard for about 5 months(i have pictures of this, one picture is with snow, then no snow,etc, shows how long the garbage was there) also they left broken glass, over 100 nails all around my yard and scraps of garbage all around my house and i had to pick it all up myself!! i have never seen any business so unprofessional! he would give me excuses how he was broke and he couldnt pay me right then! i told him i am a customer and he is the business and he owes me the money!!! I have all our conversations taped. I heard he has claimed bankruptcy so now i proberly cant sue him for my money. But i just heard he opened up a new renovation company. Its called eco something so BEWARE everyone HE IS STILL OUT THERE SCAMMING PEOPLE!!!!!!!

I know he is my sibling and the biggest narcissistic looser to his own family namely his own mother screwed her over thousands of dollars.

#1196467

Yah don't worry this guy is a piece of *** Took my money also. Came in with some garbage windows that would do more damage than the ones I have. I would recommend going through consumer protection

After my wife and i got some calls from the city due to misplaced files and inspection reports ... We contacted prestige's previous owners for help ...i was actually ready to yell and scream at them and so was my wife .....

but once they were so kind and heard us out answering our messages .... I couldn't help but feel less upset and focus more of my attention towards the city, the previous owners even contacted the city on my behave talking and arguing with them for me .... citing names and dates and everything and this job was from years ago, the final result was only a needed paperwork trail of an inspection and the city and engineer were both so impressed with the work of prestige that i couldn't help but post something today all THESE FRUSTRATED CUTOMERS AND POSTING really wasn't the experience i had at all BOTH DAVE AND GLEN were polite and professional with me and my wife i am glad i was able to track them down i wouldn't of been able to take on the city alone or site names and dates and they were able to her even offered to help with the cost for the new inspection for us NOW THATS PROFESSIONALISM ...... if in the future i need any more work done i will for sure call his NEW COMPANY !!

Winston Grey !! one satisfied customer than and now !!

#881332

After a few weeks of trying to located DAVE and GLEN the previous owner and staff from Prestige do to some issues with the city ..... I was finally able to touch base with them in regards to a job they completed for me almost 10 yrs ago !!

YES AFTER 10 years !! I located Glen at his place of work (*i will admit it I creeped him out on the internet LOL) and he was so pleasant honest and thoughtful to me it was amazing how he could remember the job the location and everything I was impressed he took the time FROM HIS WORKPLACE !! to listen to me hear my questions and city horror story and do the best he could to direct me to others and to his brother !! SO ALL THESE OTHER PEOPLE WRITING HURTFULL AND RUDE COMMENTS ABOUT THE UNPROFESSIONALISM THAT IS NOT AT ALL WHAT I EXPERIENCED NOW OR 9.5 years AGO!!

And Today DAVE took my call as well ..... was gracious and knowledgeable when I talked with him and even came to my house to look over the city papers! call the city in front of me (therefore not hiding anything as others claim!!) and got a solution, something I wasn't able to do !! Thanks so much GUYS for standing by our job, you loyalty to your customer and being honest with me from day one !!

I am not hiding my name my name is TRISHA STONLEY and I am truly best to of chosen these men to work on my house and even though the original company may not be in business they still acted like it was and helped me out when I needed help and answers and that is CUSTOMER SRVICE !! THANKS AGAIN

I CALL YOU BLUFF!!! AND ***...THAT IS NOT DAVE MURRAY'S CHARACTER...HE'S A ***!

AN ***! A SELF-RIGHTEOUS ***! HE THINKS OF NOTHING BUT HOW TO STEAL MONEY FROM PEOPLE WHO WORK HARD...HOW TO SWINDLE HIS NEXT CLIENTS. HE DOESN'T EVEN PAY HIS STREET PEOPLE...HIS WANNABEES WHO THINK THEY ARE CARPENTERS.

THEY ARE NOT EVEN LISCENCED!!! WTF? DAVE MURRAY SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO RUN ANY BUSINESS EVER!!!

@PissedConsumer1241039

I agree, that is certainly not Murray's character. And his brother Glen has no positive interaction with Dave.

There is no f'n way the two above testimonies are correct. Fake and fictional ***

#571257

Prestige Home Centre A Huge Scam

Windows and Siding waiting to be finnished Since August 2010. Windows are partially completed, and siding not even started. He never answers the telephone and avoids his customers. He takes the money and runs and never even thinks about the innocent customers he is scamming. Please contact if any information!!! The windows are not even installed properly. I've seen his only employee installing windows on a house down the street from my house, and they don't look finnished either. When you do get a hold of him he lies and gives you a date to start the work once agin and the date comes and goes with no work completed. He has apparently sold the business, but to who I have no idea. Poor guy who bought it because no one will ever deal with this Company name agin!!

He didn't sell his business. He went under cause the *** was brought to court, in which he never showed cause he couldn't afford lawyer fees!

He owed over $100,000.00 to Falcon Builders. He had an open account there, and was never entrepreneur enough to made payments on debts he owed. In addition, he never paid his so-called wannabe contractors / builders. We went through *** with this *** loser....he's a bloodsucking snake.

He sucks every penny out of you, so he can live the high life...and doesn't keep his end of the bargain because he knows *** about building. He used to work at the sports shop, Champs as a sales person. Yeah. What does that tell ya!!

Wish he'd be put in jail for a very long time. Too bad people who got caught in his web cannot hook up and launch a class action lawsuit against this ***!

BEWARE PEEPS!! HE'S A GREAT LIAR AND STEALER!

#456673

PLEASE EMAIL ME AT dnmurray1712@***.com

I would like to discuss your claim.

If found to be valid I will come to a resolution..if it be a only smear campaign and it will be dealt with legally.

Your very truly,

David Murray

Prestige home center lied to me never gave me land survey

My family and I bought a home from Pregstige Home Centers in Lake City Florida April 2010. We were new to North Florida and didn't know much about buying a home with land. We found a home on five acres and Pete was the salesperson we spoke with. He said we could qualify after speaking with his boss Jim. We asked for them to take us out to the house/land and show us around. They gave us the key and we went ourselves but Jim promised to come out there with us. We wanted the house/land and everything looked good. We inquired about the survey and Pete started to tell us that the land is fenced in. We looked on a website and were confused about the property we went back to Prestige and stated our concerns Jim informed us he would come out himself to show us around and that it was fenced in and the end of the land was behind the pond. Well he kept putting it off we signed papers and still kept asking him to come out. Now he says that it is not his problem anymore. This sucks cause we do not know were our property ends on any side of us. There is no survey that we can find and it will cost us over 500 to get one. They Lied To Sell Property and Didn't Live Up to their Part. We are Screwed Now

Prestige Home Centre has taken 9 months to complete a job of siding and install windows.

My husband and I hired this company called Prestige Home Centre located in Sudbury, ON , CA 9 months ago and they still have not completed the job. Its to late to get out of the contract and we can not afford to take them to court or we would. If only Mike Holmes could come save us right now from this disaster. Plus they have all of our money. 14,000.00$ right from the get go to go to him. Talk about reading the fine print! Prestige is nothing but a pimple on the *** of society and someone needs to pop him!!! I am so pissed at this company. I hate, hate, hate what they have done to me and my family. I hope no one ever hires them. They only work a total of 3-4 hours a day when they do work, and they will not clean up after themselves. They left 5inch long nails all around my house. Like several hundred of these nails and I have a dog, 2 young kids and a vehicle. I am just surprised no one has stepped on a nail yet and my tire hasnt blown.

#337720

dave is that you!!!!

#337555

David Murray is a total SCAM. His police record is as long as his arm and he has defrauded so many people it is incredible. STAY AWAY!!

#229804

We hired this company(guy) to do work on our home. Yes it took a little longer than we expected but in the ned it was worth it.

They are very busy but that is supposed to be a good thing. Right? FYI, when we sold our house in New Sudbury with a big profit, we did not hesitate to call him again to fix up our home. Sorry to hear that things aren't going as smoothly for you.

Must be a good reason for it. Good luck!

Prestige Home Centre is a company based out of Sudbury, Ontario, Canada and on the business card it says they take care of your biggest inventment.

Well its been 8 months since we signed the contract and not 1 basement window is installed and my siding is still not complete. This company is as shady as they come. I hope they finish my job and go out of business. I hope someone nails them soon!!!

Call and ask the can get of commerce if he's already "moved" from there.

Hard to get money out of a deadbeat loser without a penny to his name tho.

#758530

not sure if I am a victim yet or not. lots of excuses owes me money thinking of pursuing in legal matter??? anyone knowing his addresse please post so I can serve papers?

#485332

I am not from Toronto am in Sudbury. I also don't know why he says all complaints have been dealt with, mine hasn't yet.

#485330

I called repeatly and took 5 years to get the name of supplier of material. They (supplier) will replace roof but I have to pay for installation AGAIN.

For sure it will be no one even remotely connected to Prestige.

They did not order the colour we picked to start with. I would like to see legal action taken and would be willing to testify about their business practices.

#700754
@PissedConsumer485330

Hey Ripped off and ignored....don't believe a word Murray said. He never took care of the complaints.

He's a pathetic liar and thief. He steals peoples hard earn money and runs...and doesn't do the job! Why? No one is qualified to do it.

He would get people off the streets, jail to work for him. They too would not get paid most times. I know. We spent a very long time with this ***, having to deal with his *** day in and day out.

We finally brought him to court. That's when he was forced to go bankrupt!! Yup. No more money.

He couldn't even afford a lawyer, but was always the first one threatening about legal action and so forth. We are still in a mess because of him. He's cost us almost $100 grand. But, at least I can sleep at night with both eyes closed shut.

Too bad people here cannot get together and get a class action lawsuit started!

Now, wouldn't that rub him the right way? LOL

Just a heads up to everyone that Dave Murray now has a new company that sells windows and siding called ECO LIFE based in Sudbury. Hope no one gets scammed again by this guy.

#325602

Had them do our roof in 2005, work was done ok but sure it was not the colour we ordered. The Next year parts of it, various sections started to fade.

I called and was told it was a different dye lot. The next year is was worse and I called again, was told it is the manufacturer and he would contact them. After numerous calls and no call backs he finally returned my call and gave me name of supplier and implication he would call. A month later I called them and they came out and said is definite problem.

Just waiting for find out what is the problem.

My next call would have been to a lawyer. I have told people do not call this company for any jobs as not reliable.

#286047

i too have been ripped off by dave murray he owes me 3500.00. but after what i have heard from you guys i cant believe!!!

at least i got the work done on my house but it took forever for them to complete it! i was calling him every day i had to stay right on his ***!! i have all our phone conversations taped too! i wanted to take him to court for the money he owes me but then i heard he went bankrupt!!

it took dave the *** 6 months to even start the job, i was suppose to get 6months no payment but it took longer than 6months for the job to get started so i didnt get that! and then they left all the garbage (siding,insullation.etc) in my yard in 3 different piles for about 5 months!!! they left over 100 nails all around my house and they broke a window taking a window out to change and they just left it there in my yard broken wwith glass pieces all over and i have kids!!!!! I HAD TO PICK IT UP!!!!

i have never seen such an unprofessional business in my life!! he was telling me how he is broke and cant afford to pay me the money he owes me and how he will pay me this day and then he wouldnt answer my calls!! Like its my problem if he's broke! i told him that too, i told him he was the business guy and i am the customer!!
