10 Steps to Follow on the Path to Replacement Windows

The process of replacing the windows on your home – and especially finding a reputable company to replace them – can seem overwhelming. Here we’ve created a start-to-finish guide for you to follow to make the experience less confusing … and maybe even enjoyable!
Determine which windows in your home should be replaced. Do you want to replace one or two, or every window?

  1. Windows vary widely in price, so decide on a budget so you (and the window companies you solicit bids from) understand your price point.
  2. Research the various types of windows to determine which styles will best complement your home. Keep in mind that not all windows will be suited for our climate zone.
  3. Educate yourself about the products and options available to you. Familiarize yourself with common window terms and features.
  4. Make a list of questions you have about windows and the window installation process.
  5. Contact at least three local replacement window companies to request a price quote for your project. Estimates should always be free and in writing! Be sure to ask the questions you have, and write down the answers for comparison purposes.
  6. Visit the showrooms of the companies you are considering to analyze the products available in your price range. Get a feel for the company and its qualifications, reputation and sales approach.
  7. Ask questions about warranty coverage and service after the sale. If you have a future problem with your windows, how will it be handled?
  8. Talk to past clients about their experience with the company.
  9. Based upon the information you have gathered and your impressions, select the company you would like to install your windows.

Efficient and unobtrusive, the crew was in and out of installing gutter helmets and helmet heaters on my house within four hours. They were sure to clean up any debris that was left over. I am very pleased with the whole installation process.

The Gutters look great! Cosmo and Nigel were very courteous, friendly, thorough and professional. They did a wonderful job and took the time to answer any questions and advise us about the incredible warranty. So glad we did this!
