How To Choose a Window Company in St. Paul

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

Window Cost by Type

Replacing your windows is a significant undertaking, so balancing cost with long life is important. Although top-of-the-line replacement windows may come with a higher initial price tag, they often provide better long-term value due to their extended lifespan. The style, size, and material of your replacement windows have the greatest impact on 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. If you're unsure, a window specialist can help you figure out which options are ideal for your home.

In this table, you can find cost data for the most common residential window types to determine how much you might pay.

Window TypesAverage Cost
Arched$259-$1,592
Awning$375-$1,045
Bay$865-$6,415
Custom$385-$1,069
Casement$299-$1,735
Double-hung$140-$903
Egress$257-$641
Glass Block$51-$649
Picture$225-$1,663
Single-hung$102-$1,711
Skylight$128-$1,544
Sliding$295-$1,497
Storm$61-$423
Transom$314-$656

Window Material Cost

You'll also need to pick a window material. Homeowners often choose a material based on the local climate, aesthetic preferences and energy efficiency objectives. Aluminum windows are perfect for sleek, modern designs, but they cost more up-front. Wood windows cost less up-front, but you'll need to invest in regular maintenance to prevent the frame from warping and wear. Vinyl is readily available and tends to cost less, but don't underestimate its strong durability and low maintenance needs.

Window TypesAverage Cost
Aluminum$61-$1,711
Composite$618-$1,388
Fiberglass$102-$865
Vinyl$208-$1,925
Wood$309-$1,735

Other Window Replacement Costs

Your total cost for window replacement will also include warranty fees (if applicable), permit-related costs (if required), and labor. Be sure to discuss each of these elements with an estimator before committing to a window company.

Experience and Training

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

  • How long 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

In Minnesota, window and door installation is considered carpentry, and firms need either a remodeler or residential building contractor license from the Department of Labor and Industry. A company representative must successfully complete a pre-application exam, provide copies of legal disclosures, and enroll in continuing education classes every two years once licensed. If a window installation company makes $15,000 or less per year, it can request a Certificate of Exemption in place of a certification.

Types of Windows Offered

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

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

Customer Feedback

Perhaps the best way to screen window companies for your job is to read what previous customers have said about them. 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. Speak with people you know who have used the company you're evaluating, and ask a representative for professional references.
