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.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
