How To Choose a Window Company in Glen Ellyn

Trustworthiness is essential when it comes to choosing a window installer. However, your chosen company should also suit your needs and understand your vision. Keep in mind the following factors during your company search:

Window Cost by Type

When it comes to replacing your windows, value is king. Each window you buy should offer optimal durability at a reasonable price point. Choosing budget replacement windows could actually increase your overall cost, since they come with a shorter lifespan and more intensive maintenance needs. The style, material, and size of your new windows play the largest role in determining your final cost. Simple double-hung windows deliver great value with their straightforward style and simple mechanisms, while a sweeping, custom-size picture window will cost more. An installer can guide you through picking the products that fit your needs.

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

Window TypesAverage Cost
Arched$252-$1,548
Awning$365-$1,016
Bay$841-$6,238
Custom$374-$1,040
Casement$291-$1,686
Double-hung$136-$878
Egress$250-$623
Glass Block$50-$631
Picture$219-$1,617
Single-hung$99-$1,663
Skylight$125-$1,502
Sliding$286-$1,455
Storm$59-$411
Transom$305-$638

Window Material Cost

Replacement window prices also vary based on material. Each option gives you different benefits depending on your climate and energy efficiency needs. Fiberglass and vinyl are readily-available materials, so they tend to cost less. Likewise, composites and aluminum look sleek and stay strong against the elements, so they tend to cost more.

Window TypesAverage Cost
Aluminum$59-$1,663
Composite$601-$1,349
Fiberglass$99-$841
Vinyl$202-$1,871
Wood$300-$1,686

Other Window Replacement Costs

Your total cost for new windows will also include applicable warranty fees, permit-related costs (if required), and labor. Make sure to discuss each of these aspects with a sales representative before committing to a window company.

Experience and Training

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

  • How long it's been serving the Glen Ellyn area
  • Photo galleries of projects its crews completed
  • Private certifications 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 towns 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. Beyond the Windy City, licensing requirements are not uniform.

Types of Windows Offered

No two window contractors offer the same window types and materials. Find one that focuses on the type you want for your home.

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

Customer Feedback

Reading other customers' stories is a surefire way to screen different window replacement companies. Trustworthy sources for customer reviews include Trustpilot, the BBB, 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.
