How To Choose a Window Company in West Chicago

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

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 cheap replacement windows could actually raise your overall cost, due to their shorter lifespan and more intensive maintenance needs. The final cost of your replacement windows will rely on the specific sizes, styles, and materials you need. Transom windows are inexpensive with their simple size and straightforward form factor, while a sweeping, custom-size picture window will cost more. If you're unsure, a window company can help you decide which options are best 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$235-$1,442
Awning$340-$947
Bay$783-$5,810
Custom$349-$968
Casement$271-$1,571
Double-hung$127-$818
Egress$232-$580
Glass Block$46-$588
Picture$204-$1,506
Single-hung$92-$1,549
Skylight$116-$1,399
Sliding$267-$1,356
Storm$55-$383
Transom$284-$594

Window Material Cost

Materials also help determine a window's cost. You might select 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$55-$1,549
Composite$559-$1,257
Fiberglass$92-$783
Vinyl$189-$1,743
Wood$280-$1,571

Other Window Replacement Costs

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

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 in business
  • Photo galleries of projects its crews completed
  • 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 more varied.

Types of Windows Offered

The kind of window you desire should influence your company choice. Not every installation crew will necessarily be familiar with the window brand you want. A company website will reveal more about the window types it specializes in, such as:

Also, check the kind of window framing materials a company works with. Each material has distinct price points, life spans, and energy performance capabilities. Common materials include wood, aluminum, composite, vinyl and fiberglass.

Customer Feedback

Reading other customers' stories is an excellent way to screen different window companies. You can find customer reviews on websites like Yelp, Google, Trustpilot, and the BBB. 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.
