    How To Choose a Window Company in Bloomington

    An exceptional reputation is important when it comes to choosing a window company. However, your chosen company should also align with your needs and respect your vision. Think about the following factors during your company search:

    Window Cost by Type

    When you're shopping for new windows, it's important 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, as well as the styles, sizes, and materials of windows you opt for, can affect pricing. Transom windows are inexpensive with their simple size and straightforward form factor, while new skylights cost more to prepare for and install. If you're unsure, a window provider can help you figure out which options are ideal for your home.

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

    Window TypesAverage Cost
    Arched$206-$1266
    Awning$298-$831
    Bay$688-$5105
    Custom$306-$850
    Casement$238-$1380
    Double-hung$111-$718
    Egress$204-$509
    Glass Block$40-$516
    Picture$179-$1323
    Single-hung$80-$1361
    Skylight$102-$1229
    Sliding$234-$1191
    Storm$48-$336
    Transom$249-$521

    Window Material Cost

    Materials also help determine a window's cost. You might choose a material based on your energy efficiency goals, your desired look, and the local climate. For example, windows made of wood can give your home an organic design without breaking the bank, but you'll have to invest more toward maintenance. Aluminum and composite windows cost more up-front, but they're incredibly durable against the elements, so you'll spend far less on maintenance.

    Window TypesAverage Cost
    Aluminum$48-$1361
    Composite$491-$1104
    Fiberglass$80-$688
    Vinyl$165-$1531
    Wood$245-$1380

    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 factor in the cost of labor, warranties, and any other supplemental fees that your project may require.

    Experience and Training

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

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

    Licensing and Credentials

    Illinois doesn't issue state contracting licenses to window installers, but municipalities in the Land of Lincoln might have their own requirements for companies to follow. In Chicago proper, window installers must have a Class D or E license and submit copies of their business filings for the public record. Outside the Windy City, licensing requirements are not uniform.

    Types of Windows Offered

    No two businesses offer the same window styles and materials. Look for one that focuses on the type you want for your home.

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

    Customer Feedback

    Reading other customers' stories is an excellent way to screen potential window companies. 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 Bloomington

    How could new windows help my energy efficiency?

    In Bloomington specifically, most homeowners using efficient windows reduce their carbon emissions by 640 pounds yearly. This means they save $300 on their annual electricity costs.

    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 installing new, more efficient windows, you can improve your home's energy efficiency and lower your electricity bills.

    I've heard there are tax credits for energy-efficient windows. How much could I save?

    Ultimately, the tax incentives you can claim depend on the scope of your window replacement and the community you live in. You can claim 30% of the value of new efficient windows as a federal tax credit, up to $3,200 per year, until 2032. We also encourage you to speak with your city or county government for more information on tax breaks specific to your area.

    How important are guarantees and extended support packages?

    We strongly recommend choosing a window company that backs their work with a guarantee for your protection. These plans usually cover material flaws, manufacturer defects, and workmanship errors that appear after installation. Verify the warranty details with a window company before signing a contract.
