    How To Choose a Window Company in Norwalk

    Dependability is important when it comes to choosing a window installer. However, your chosen company should also suit your priorities and appreciate your vision. Think about the following factors during your company search:

    Window Cost by Type

    When it comes to window replacement, cost-effectiveness is king. Each window you buy should deliver optimal durability at an affordable price point. Choosing cheap windows could actually increase your overall cost, since they come with a reduced lifespan and more intensive maintenance needs. The overall cost of your replacement windows will hinge on the specific styles, materials, and sizes you need. Transom windows are inexpensive with their simple size and straightforward form factor, while a custom-cut arch window in a master suite will cost more. If you're unsure, a window company can help you decide which options are most suitable for your home.

    To help you form a rough estimate, this table shows the typical cost of the most common residential window types.

    Window TypesAverage Cost
    Arched$243-$1495
    Awning$352-$981
    Bay$812-$6025
    Custom$361-$1004
    Casement$281-$1629
    Double-hung$131-$848
    Egress$241-$601
    Glass Block$48-$609
    Picture$211-$1562
    Single-hung$95-$1606
    Skylight$120-$1450
    Sliding$276-$1405
    Storm$57-$397
    Transom$294-$615

    Window Material Cost

    Window prices also vary based on material. Each option provides different benefits depending on your climate and energy-saving goals. Fiberglass and vinyl are readily-available materials, so they tend to cost less. Likewise, aluminum and composites look sleek and stay strong in Norwalk's strong storms, so they tend to cost more.

    Window TypesAverage Cost
    Aluminum$57-$1606
    Composite$580-$1303
    Fiberglass$95-$812
    Vinyl$195-$1807
    Wood$290-$1629

    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 assess the cost of labor, warranties, and any other extra expenses that your project may require.

    Experience and Training

    Choose a business that focuses on window installation and repair, and look for this information on its website:

    • How long it's been serving the Norwalk area
    • Photo galleries of completed projects
    • Privately-issued certificates attesting to its workmanship
    The more experience a company has, the better its service and workmanship.

    Licensing and Credentials

    A California window provider 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

    There are numerous replacement window types you can choose from, and it's essential to find a company that is experienced with the ones you want. Check a company's website and reviews for any of these types:

    Finally, pay close attention to the materials that a provider uses. Each window frame material has a different price point, life span and energy efficiency level. A company will usually specify whether the windows they install use fiberglass, composite, vinyl, wood, or metal.

    Customer Feedback

    One of the best ways to vet a company is to see what other customers have said about their experiences. Read customer reviews on sites such as Yelp, Trustpilot, and Google. You can also view customer reviews and company ratings on the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website. 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.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Window Replacement in Norwalk

    How could new windows help my energy efficiency?

    In Norwalk specifically, most homeowners using efficient windows lower their carbon emissions by 120 pounds yearly. That amounts to $510 of annual savings.

    The U.S. Department of Energy states that 25%–30% of a home's heating and cooling capacity is used to compensate for heat gain and heat loss through windows. By purchasing new, more efficient windows, you can boost your home's energy efficiency and lower your electricity bills.

    How frequently should I upgrade or replace my windows?

    Windows don't have an indefinite lifespan, and most wood models are built to serve your home for around two decades. Over time, caulking and weatherstripping loosen, framing shifts, and window coatings deteriorate. These changes result in condensation, energy loss, air leaks, and other expensive problems necessitating repair or replacement.

    Can I replace just my windows' glass and not their frames?

    If you broke your window's glass, you may not need to replace the whole thing. Usually, you can simply swap out the shattered glass pane without having to replace the entire window structure. However, it's best to consult a window repair expert to figure out the most appropriate repair for your specific situation.
