How To Choose a Window Company in Gurnee

Dependability is essential when it comes to choosing a window installer. However, your chosen company should also suit your priorities and appreciate your vision. Think about the following factors during your company search:

Window Cost by Type

When you're shopping for new windows, it's crucial to remember that there's more to cost than just purchase price. You want a high-quality and durable window. Choosing economy replacement windows could actually increase your overall cost, due to their reduced lifespan and more intensive maintenance needs. The final cost of your window replacement will depend on the specific materials, styles, and sizes you need. 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. A professional can guide you through picking the options that fit your preferences.

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

Window TypesAverage Cost
Arched$223-$1,368
Awning$323-$898
Bay$743-$5,513
Custom$331-$919
Casement$257-$1,491
Double-hung$120-$776
Egress$221-$550
Glass Block$44-$558
Picture$194-$1,429
Single-hung$87-$1,470
Skylight$110-$1,327
Sliding$253-$1,286
Storm$52-$363
Transom$270-$564

Window Material Cost

Materials also help determine a window's cost. You might select a material based on the local climate, your desired look, and your energy efficiency goals. For example, wooden windows 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$52-$1,470
Composite$531-$1,192
Fiberglass$87-$743
Vinyl$179-$1,654
Wood$265-$1,491

Other Window Replacement Costs

Your total cost for new windows will also include warranty fees (if applicable), permit application fees, and labor. Ensure that you discuss each of these elements with an estimator before committing to a window company.

Experience and Training

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

  • The number of years it's been in business
  • Photo galleries of completed projects
  • Privately-issued certificates 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. Find one that specializes in the type you want for your home.

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

Customer Feedback

Reading other customers' stories is a great way to screen different window replacement companies. Trustworthy sources for customer reviews include the BBB, Google, and Trustpilot Talk to people you know who have used the company you're evaluating, and ask a representative for professional references.
