Asking the right questions can point you in the right direction when looking for a replacement windows company. Here are some practical questions to ask a window replacement company before selecting one.

What Window Styles Do You Offer?

Whether you already have a clear idea of the windows that you want or if you’re simply looking at what’s available, you have to know what the company is offering. Not all replacement window companies offer custom window styles or textured glass or the option to mull multiple windows together. If your remodeling plans call for such options, you should be able to narrow down your choices just by the list of offerings.

Can You Describe a Typical Project Timeline?

Experienced window replacement companies should be able to give you a nearly accurate estimate of a project timeline. On an average home, skilled installers can install replacement windows in a day, start to finish. This may take longer depending on factors, such as house size, number of windows and window styles. Bay windows, for instance, take much longer to install as opposed to simpler styles like double hung windows.

What Is Your Replacement Process?

Watch out for window replacement companies that remove all old windows first before installing the new ones. It will leave your home open to dust, dirt, pollen and small animals, especially if installation is expected to last more than a day. Instead, choose a window replacement company whose installers remove and replace one window at a time. It helps prevent air leaks, and it allows installation during any time of the year – including in the middle of the winter season.

Do You Provide Written Estimates or Quotes?

Never pick a contractor who wouldn’t provide a written estimate or quote. A trustworthy window replacement company should have no problems providing either document on or shortly after a consultation. We at Renewal by Andersen® even hand-deliver the written quote, ready for review.

Who Will Dispose of the Old Windows?

Generally, it is the homeowner who arranges for waste disposal, at cost, unless the window replacement company offers it as a part of their service. Renewal by Andersen is one such company: we properly dispose of old windows to help reduce waste that ends up in landfills.

Reviews

"We had a large picture window and two side windows replaced. Everyone from the person who took our order to the installers were top notch. We got exactly what we wanted. Granted, we had to wait a few months, just like you do for everything these days, but we were told that up front. The windows were well worth the wait. We've replaced windows before by going to home maintenance stores. Don't waste your money on those. Our Renewal by Andersen windows look great, they operate like a dream, and are worth every penny. Quality through and through."

B. Young | RBA OF ST. LOUIS, MO - MARYLAND HEIGHTS

"From start to finish everyone we dealt with were total professionals.. The project process was well communicated, the installers did an excellent job and the windows - I’m so excited about our new windows! They look great. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I am looking forward to cleaning them. And it was obvious immediately that the insulation is vastly better than the old windows. Also, I am just a customer who gets nothing for this endorsement. I just appreciate good service and an excellent product. This company knows how to do it right."
