How To Choose a Window Company in La Mesa

Each window provider has different offerings and approaches. To simplify the company search, keep these factors in mind:

Window Cost by Type

When you're shopping for new windows, it's essential to remember that there's more to cost than just purchase price. You want a high-quality and durable window. Although high-quality replacement windows may be more expensive to buy, they often provide better long-term value due to their increased lifespan. The age of your home, in addition to the sizes, materials, and styles of replacement windows you select, can influence pricing. Single-hung windows often cost less due to their straightforward style and simple mechanisms, while a sweeping, custom-size picture window will cost more. A professional can help you with selecting the solutions that fit your needs.

In this table, you can find cost data for the most common residential window types to determine how much you might pay.

Window TypesAverage Cost
Arched$237-$1,455
Awning$343-$956
Bay$790-$5,863
Custom$352-$977
Casement$274-$1,585
Double-hung$128-$825
Egress$235-$585
Glass Block$47-$593
Picture$206-$1,520
Single-hung$93-$1,564
Skylight$117-$1,412
Sliding$269-$1,368
Storm$56-$387
Transom$287-$599

Window Material Cost

You'll also need to pick a window material. Homeowners frequently base their decision on aesthetic preferences, energy efficiency objectives and the local climate. Aluminum windows are perfect for sleek, modern designs, but they cost more up-front. Wood windows cost less up-front, but you'll need to invest in regular maintenance to prevent the frame from wear and warping. Vinyl is readily available and tends to cost less, but don't underestimate its strong durability and low maintenance needs.

Window TypesAverage Cost
Aluminum$56-$1,564
Composite$565-$1,268
Fiberglass$93-$790
Vinyl$190-$1,759
Wood$282-$1,585

Other Window Replacement Costs

Your contractor will factor the price for your windows and the value of their services into its total estimate. Make sure to take into account the cost of labor, guarantees, and any other additional costs that your project may need.

Experience and Training

Browse a company's website and talk to a representative to learn more about its product and service offerings, pricing, and guarantees. Many window companies also keep online photo galleries that exhibit past projects.

Ensure that the company specializes in window replacement. The more specialized training its staff has, and the longer it has been in operation, the more likely it will deliver excellent workmanship.

Licensing and Credentials

A California window company must be licensed as a Window Coverings Contractor, Glazing Contractor and General Building Contractor if it performs jobs valued at over $500. Each license has its own test and experience requirements. If a contractor is caught working without a license, they'll have to pay steep fines.

Types of Windows Offered

No two window contractors offer the same window styles and materials. Find one that's an expert in the type you want for your home.

Also, check the style of window framing materials a company works with. Each material has different price points, life spans, and energy performance capabilities. Common materials include wood, composite, aluminum, vinyl and fiberglass.

Customer Feedback

Perhaps the best way to screen window companies for your job is to check what previous customers have said about them. Trustworthy sources for customer reviews include Yelp, the BBB, and Trustpilot Referrals can also help you in your company search. Ask each company you're interested in for a list of references, and talk to family and friends about who they use for window installations.
