    How To Choose a Window Company in Wilmington

    With Wilmington's large population, you're sure to find a reputable replacement window company that suits your values and preferences. As you reach out to companies, keep the following factors in mind:

    Window Cost by Type

    Replacing your windows is a substantial expense, so balancing cost with performance is crucial. Although top-of-the-line windows may cost more upfront, they often yield better long-term value due to their extended lifespan. The age of your home, together with the styles, sizes, and materials of windows you select, can affect pricing. Simple double-hung windows deliver great value with their straightforward style and simple mechanisms, while a custom-cut arch window in a master suite will cost more. A window expert can help you with picking the products that fit your needs.

    To help you form a rough estimate, this table shows the typical cost of the most common residential window types.

    Window TypesAverage Cost
    Arched$212-$1306
    Awning$308-$858
    Bay$709-$5265
    Custom$315-$877
    Casement$245-$1423
    Double-hung$114-$741
    Egress$210-$525
    Glass Block$42-$532
    Picture$184-$1365
    Single-hung$83-$1404
    Skylight$105-$1267
    Sliding$241-$1228
    Storm$49-$347
    Transom$257-$538

    Window Material Cost

    Window prices also vary based on material. Each option offers unique advantages depending on the local climate and energy-saving goals. Fiberglass and vinyl are readily-available materials, so they tend to cost less. Likewise, composites and aluminum look sleek and stay strong against the elements, so they tend to cost more.

    Window TypesAverage Cost
    Aluminum$49-$1404
    Composite$507-$1138
    Fiberglass$83-$709
    Vinyl$170-$1579
    Wood$253-$1423

    Other Window Replacement Costs

    Your total cost for window replacement 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

    Browse a company's website and talk to a representative to learn more about its product and service offerings, pricing, and guarantees. Many window companies also keep online portfolios that exhibit past projects.

    Ensure that the company specializes in window replacement. The more dedicated instruction its staff has, and the longer it has been in business, the more likely it will provide high-quality service.

    Licensing and Credentials

    In North Carolina, window businesses need a specialty contractor license and interior construction classification from the state's contractors' board. The application process includes exams on local regulations and industry best practices. If a company only works on jobs costing $30,000 or less, it is considered a handyman's business and a license is not required.

    Types of Windows Offered

    No two window installers offer the same window styles and materials. Find one that's an expert in the type you want for your home.

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

    Customer Feedback

    Perhaps the best way to screen window companies for your job is to see what previous customers have said about them. You can find customer reviews on websites like Google, the BBB, Yelp, and Trustpilot. Speak with people you know who have used a company you're interested in, and ask a representative for a copy of its reference list.
