    How To Choose a Window Company in Ocala

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

    Window Cost by Type

    When you're shopping for replacement windows, it's essential to remember that there's more to cost than just purchase price. You want a high-quality and durable window. Choosing economy windows could actually increase your overall cost, due to their reduced lifespan and more intensive maintenance needs. The age of your home, in addition to the styles, sizes, and materials of windows you opt for, can influence pricing. Simple double-hung windows deliver great value with their straightforward style and simple mechanisms, while a custom-cut arch window in a master suite will cost more. It's wise to speak with a trusted window installer to determine your most suitable options.

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

    Window TypesAverage Cost
    Arched$218-$1337
    Awning$315-$878
    Bay$726-$5391
    Custom$323-$898
    Casement$251-$1457
    Double-hung$117-$758
    Egress$215-$538
    Glass Block$43-$545
    Picture$189-$1397
    Single-hung$85-$1437
    Skylight$107-$1297
    Sliding$247-$1257
    Storm$51-$355
    Transom$263-$551

    Window Material Cost

    You'll also need to pick a window material. Homeowners frequently choose a material based 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 warping and wear. Vinyl is readily available and tends to cost less, but don't underestimate its strong durability and low maintenance needs.

    Window TypesAverage Cost
    Aluminum$51-$1437
    Composite$519-$1166
    Fiberglass$85-$726
    Vinyl$174-$1617
    Wood$259-$1457

    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 installation, guarantees, and any other supplemental fees that your project may entail.

    Experience and Training

    The longer a window installer has been operating, the better its workmanship will likely be. Contact a company representative to learn more about its experience, public and private credentials, and guarantees. Company websites often keep photo galleries where you can see previous work technicians have done.

    Licensing and Credentials

    Window companies in Florida need a glazing, residential, or general license from the state Construction Industry Licensing Board. Some licenses enable companies to operate in one location only, while others allow crews to work statewide. Cities might have their own extra licenses, but they cannot overlap with licenses that the state manages.

    Types of Windows Offered

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

    Equally important to your desired windows' shape is their framing. Ask your window provider if it offers the frame material you want, such as wood, composite, vinyl, aluminum, or fiberglass.

    Customer Feedback

    One of the easiest ways to vet a company is to read what other customers have written about their experiences. Read customer reviews on sites such as Yelp, Google, and Trustpilot. 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.
