The HiRise team replacing windows in Clarendon
Condo and co-op owners are often surprised to find out that they – and not their condo association – have the responsibility for the upkeep of windows and doors. HiRise Windows, a local company founded and managed by Kevin Vincent, brings excellent customer service to this particular homeowner need. The firm replaces and improves windows and balcony doors to improve noise filtering and energy efficiency, enhance light and functionality, and limit drafts that bring in dust and dirt from outside.
Using commercial grade AAMA standard materials, HiRise has completed high-profile projects for renovations, new construction and historic properties across the region, including Georgetown North and Macomb House Condominiums in DC, Regency at McLean and Charleston Condominiums in Virginia, and Westlake Towers in Bethesda.
In 2011, the firm was hired to upgrade the iconic three-tower, 26-story Skyline Plaza in Virginia. Removing worn out steel doors, HiRise’s new glass and aluminum frames have gone a long way in maximizing natural light, minimizing drafty gaps and saving energy at Skyline Plaza. The company has already replaced thousands of windows and balcony doors for the multi-tower condominium, and late this summer began work on an upgrade of hundreds of windows and doors at the project’s third and final set of towers.
The HiRise team onsite.
The HiRise Windows team works with condominium boards, property management companies and individual unit owners to make sure the design and installation of the windows is in line with what the client envisions. For homeowners whose condominium boards handle interior building issues only (leaving exterior issues like windows to individual owners), working with HiRise proves incredibly advantageous. The firm can help organize individual condo owners, formalize group purchasing and bring costs down for the entire building.
“We believe in exceeding our clients’ expectations by adhering to excellence in customer service,” Kevin Vincent said. “Shaking hands over a contract, providing skilled on-site crews and being available to answer questions throughout the project are all important parts of the way we do business.”
