How To Choose a Window Company in Elmira

It's essential to find a window installer that matches your specific values, needs, and preferences. Consider the following points during your search:

Window Cost by Type

When you're shopping for replacement windows, it's essential 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 increase your overall cost, due to their shorter lifespan and more intensive maintenance needs. The overall cost of your replacement windows will hinge on the particular sizes, materials, and styles you need. Transom windows are inexpensive with their simple size and straightforward form factor, while new skylights cost more to prepare for and install. A window expert can guide you through choosing the products 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$243-$1,493
Awning$352-$980
Bay$811-$6,015
Custom$361-$1,003
Casement$281-$1,626
Double-hung$131-$847
Egress$241-$601
Glass Block$48-$609
Picture$211-$1,559
Single-hung$95-$1,604
Skylight$120-$1,448
Sliding$276-$1,404
Storm$57-$397
Transom$294-$615

Window Material Cost

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

Window TypesAverage Cost
Aluminum$57-$1,604
Composite$579-$1,301
Fiberglass$95-$811
Vinyl$195-$1,805
Wood$290-$1,626

Other Window Replacement Costs

Ask each contractor you're evaluating about warranty fees, labor costs, and permit fees. This will help you get a better picture of the total costs involved in the project.

Experience and Training

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

  • How many years it's been operating
  • Photo galleries of projects its crews completed
  • Official non-government certificates attesting to its workmanship
The more experience a company has, the better its service and workmanship.

Licensing and Credentials

New York's state government doesn't issue contracting licenses for window installers, but this doesn't stop local governments from stepping in and setting up their own licenses. For example, to put in windows in New York City, a company must secure a Home Improvement Contractor License by passing exams and ecological assessments.

Types of Windows Offered

The type of window you prefer should play a role in your company choice. Not every installer will necessarily be familiar with the window styles you want. A company website will provide more about the styles of windows it deals with, such as:

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

Customer Feedback

Reading other customers' stories is one of the best ways to screen different window companies. You can find customer reviews on websites like Yelp, Trustpilot, Google, 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.
