    How To Choose a Window Company in Wheeling

    With Wheeling's large population, you're sure to find a reputable replacement window company in line with your values and preferences. As you contact companies, keep the following factors in mind:

    Window Cost by Type

    When it comes to window replacement, value is king. Each window you buy should provide top-notch durability at an affordable price point. Choosing budget windows could actually increase your overall cost, since they come with a shorter lifespan and more intensive maintenance needs. The age of your home, as well as the sizes, styles, and materials of replacement windows you select, 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 undecided, a window provider can help you determine 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$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

    Materials also help determine a window's cost. You might pick a material based on your energy efficiency goals, the local climate, and your desired look. 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 in Wheeling's strong storms, so you'll spend far less on maintenance.

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

    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 factors with an estimator before committing to a window company.

    Experience and Training

    The longer a window installer has been operating, the better its workmanship will likely be. Call a company representative to learn more about its public and private credentials, guarantees, and experience. Company websites often keep photo galleries showing off previous work technicians have done.

    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

    There are numerous replacement window types you can choose from, and it's essential to find a company that has expertise with the ones you want. Check a company's website and reviews for any of these types:

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

    Customer Feedback

    One of the simplest ways to vet a company is to read what other customers have said about their experiences. Trustworthy sources for customer reviews include the BBB, Trustpilot, and Google 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 Wheeling

    How could new windows help my energy efficiency?

    In Wheeling specifically, most homeowners using efficient windows lower their carbon emissions by 450 pounds each year. 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.

    Do I need a building permit to replace my home's windows?

    Replacing windows may require obtaining permits, depending on your local building codes and regulations. Some communities mandate permits for window replacement projects in cases involving structural changes or alterations to the window openings. We recommend checking with your local building department or consult a professional before starting any window replacement work.

    My window screen tore. How should I fix it?

    It depends on the size of the tear and where it's located on your window. You can usually repair small tears yourself using a special kit. Some window companies will supply you with one when they install your windows, or you can purchase one for $5–10 from a local hardware store. Larger tears, or those located at the edge of a window, usually need professional assistance.
