How To Choose a Window Company in Washington

With Washington's robust local economy, you're sure to find a reliable replacement window company in line with your values and preferences. As you reach out to companies, keep the following factors in mind:

Window Cost by Type

Replacing your windows is a major purchase, so balancing cost with durability is vital. Although high-quality replacement windows may cost more upfront, they often yield better long-term value due to their longer lifespan. The final cost of your window replacement will depend on the specific sizes, materials, and styles you need. Single-hung windows often cost less due to their straightforward style and simple mechanisms, while a sweeping, custom-size picture window will cost more. It's wise to speak with a reliable window installer to decide on your ideal options.

This table shows average prices for various window types to give you an idea of what to expect.

Window TypesAverage Cost
Arched$234-$1,433
Awning$338-$941
Bay$779-$5,775
Custom$347-$963
Casement$270-$1,561
Double-hung$126-$813
Egress$231-$577
Glass Block$46-$584
Picture$203-$1,497
Single-hung$92-$1,540
Skylight$116-$1,390
Sliding$265-$1,348
Storm$55-$381
Transom$282-$590

Window Material Cost

Window prices also vary based on material. Each option gives you unique advantages depending on your climate and energy-saving goals. Vinyl and fiberglass are readily-available materials, so they tend to cost less. Likewise, aluminum and composites look sleek and stay strong in Washington's strong storms, so they tend to cost more.

Window TypesAverage Cost
Aluminum$55-$1,540
Composite$556-$1,249
Fiberglass$92-$779
Vinyl$187-$1,733
Wood$278-$1,561

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, guarantees, and any other additional costs that your project may need.

Experience and Training

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

  • How long it's been in business
  • Photo galleries of completed projects
  • Official non-government certificates attesting to its workmanship
The more experience a company has, the better its service and workmanship.

Licensing and Credentials

Types of Windows Offered

The type of window you prefer should play a role in your company choice. Not every contractor will necessarily be familiar with the window brand you want. A company website will provide more about the styles of windows it deals with, such as:

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

Customer Feedback

Reading other customers' stories is one of the best ways to screen window companies in your area. You can find customer reviews on websites like Google, the BBB, Trustpilot, and Yelp. Speak with people you know who have used a company you're interested in, and ask a representative for a copy of its reference list.
