    How To Choose a Window Company in Elk Grove

    Reliability is key when it comes to choosing a window provider. However, your chosen company should also align with your priorities and understand your vision. Consider the following factors during your company search:

    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, since they come with a reduced lifespan and more intensive maintenance needs. The material, style, and size of your new windows play the largest role in determining your final cost. Single-hung windows often cost less due to their straightforward style and simple mechanisms, while a custom-cut arch window in a master suite will cost more. If you're undecided, a window specialist can help you determine which options are best for your home.

    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$240-$1475
    Awning$348-$969
    Bay$801-$5946
    Custom$356-$991
    Casement$277-$1607
    Double-hung$129-$836
    Egress$237-$593
    Glass Block$47-$601
    Picture$208-$1541
    Single-hung$94-$1585
    Skylight$118-$1431
    Sliding$273-$1387
    Storm$56-$392
    Transom$290-$607

    Window Material Cost

    Window prices also vary based on material. Each option offers unique advantages depending on the local climate and energy efficiency needs. Vinyl and fiberglass are readily-available materials, so they tend to cost less. Likewise, aluminum and composites look sleek and stay strong in Elk Grove's strong storms, so they tend to cost more.

    Window TypesAverage Cost
    Aluminum$56-$1585
    Composite$572-$1286
    Fiberglass$94-$801
    Vinyl$192-$1784
    Wood$286-$1607

    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 additional costs that your project may require.

    Experience and Training

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

    • How long it's been serving the Elk Grove area
    • Photo galleries of completed projects
    • Official non-government accreditations 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 cities 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 business disclosures for the public record. Outside the Windy City, licensing requirements are not uniform.

    Types of Windows Offered

    The kind of window you desire should play a role in your company choice. Not every installation crew will necessarily be familiar with the window brand you want. A company website will tell more about the kinds of windows it focuses on, such as:

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

    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 Google, Trustpilot, and the BBB 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.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Window Replacement in Elk Grove

    How much energy and money will I save by upgrading my windows?

    Elk Grove homeowners could potentially save $300 annually by upgrading to efficient windows. They'll also lower their property's carbon dioxide emissions by 450 pounds per year.

    According to the national Department of Energy, up to a third of a house's HVAC usage is to compensate for the heat or cold entering through windows. Energy-efficient windows help keep heat out in the summertime and in during the wintertime, both protecting your comfort and saving you money.

    What time of year should I replace my windows?

    There is no "right" or "wrong" time to upgrade your windows, but some seasons might be better than others depending on the local climate and a company's demand. Elk Grove experiences average winters, so anytime in the fall, spring, or summer will maximize your comfort during the process.

    How long does a window replacement job take?

    The length of a window replacement project can vary greatly. It usually takes up to a month for the contractor to receive your windows from the manufacturer. The installation process itself often takes 40–60 minutes per window. However, larger windows or more complex installations may require additional time.
