How To Choose a Window Company in Reading

It's important to find a window replacement company that aligns with your individual values, needs, and preferences. Consider the following traits during your hunt:

Window Cost by Type

When you're shopping for replacement windows, it's crucial to remember that there's more to cost than just purchase price. You want a high-quality and durable window. Although premium replacement windows may come with a higher initial price tag, they often provide better long-term value due to their extended lifespan. The age of your home, in addition to the sizes, materials, and styles of replacement windows you select, can influence pricing. Simple double-hung windows deliver great value with their straightforward style and simple mechanisms, while new skylights cost more to prepare for and install. It's wise to consult a vetted window installer to determine your most suitable options.

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

Window TypesAverage Cost
Arched$254-$1,556
Awning$367-$1,022
Bay$845-$6,269
Custom$376-$1,045
Casement$293-$1,695
Double-hung$137-$882
Egress$251-$626
Glass Block$50-$634
Picture$220-$1,625
Single-hung$99-$1,672
Skylight$125-$1,509
Sliding$288-$1,463
Storm$59-$413
Transom$306-$641

Window Material Cost

Materials also help determine a window's cost. You might select a material based on your desired look, the local climate, and your energy efficiency goals. For example, wood 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$59-$1,672
Composite$604-$1,356
Fiberglass$99-$845
Vinyl$203-$1,881
Wood$302-$1,695

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 aspects with an estimator before committing to a window company.

Experience and Training

The longer a window installer has served your area, the better its workmanship will likely be. Talk with a company representative to learn more about its public and private credentials, guarantees, and experience. Company websites often have photo galleries where you can see previous work technicians have done.

Licensing and Credentials

Massachusetts window contractors are considered general contractors and require a Construction Supervisor License (CSL) with a window classification. CSL applicants must pass an open-book exam and demonstrate 36 months of vocational training. Once a business has a CSL, it also needs to register with the Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation as a "home improvement contractor."

Types of Windows Offered

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

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

Customer Feedback

One of the simplest ways to evaluate a company is to see what other customers have said about their experiences. Read customer reviews on sites such as Trustpilot, Yelp, and Google. You can also view customer reviews and company ratings on the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website. Ask people you know who have used the company you're interested in, and ask a representative for professional references.
