How To Choose a Window Company in Kent

Each window installer has different offerings and approaches. To streamline the company search, keep these factors in mind:

Window Cost by Type

Replacing your windows is a major purchase, so balancing cost with durability is crucial. Although top-of-the-line windows may be more expensive to buy, they often provide better long-term value due to their increased lifespan. The total cost of your replacement windows will depend on the particular sizes, styles, and materials you need. 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. An installer can guide you through selecting the solutions 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$209-$1,285
Awning$303-$844
Bay$698-$5,177
Custom$311-$863
Casement$242-$1,400
Double-hung$113-$729
Egress$207-$517
Glass Block$41-$524
Picture$182-$1,342
Single-hung$82-$1,381
Skylight$104-$1,246
Sliding$238-$1,208
Storm$49-$341
Transom$253-$529

Window Material Cost

You'll also need to choose a window material. Homeowners frequently base their decision on energy efficiency objectives, aesthetic preferences and the local climate. 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$49-$1,381
Composite$499-$1,120
Fiberglass$82-$698
Vinyl$168-$1,553
Wood$249-$1,400

Other Window Replacement Costs

Ask each window installer you're evaluating about warranty fees, labor costs, and permit fees. This will help you understand the financial commitment involved in the project.

Experience and Training

The longer a window provider has been in business, the better its workmanship will likely be. Contact a company representative to learn more about its guarantees, experience, and public and private credentials. Company websites often have photo galleries where you can see previous work technicians have done.

Licensing and Credentials

If installing windows and doors is all a company does, it will likely not need an Ohio contractor's license. However, it still needs a business license from the Secretary of State.

Cities like Cincinnati, Columbus, and Cleveland have their own licensure requirements. We recommend contacting your local building office for more information.

Types of Windows Offered

There are many replacement window types you can choose from, and it's crucial to find a company that is experienced 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 installer if it offers the frame material you want, such as wood, aluminum, vinyl, composite, or fiberglass.

Customer Feedback

One of the greatest ways to screen a company is to check what other customers have written about their experiences. You can find customer reviews on websites like Yelp, the BBB, Google, and Trustpilot. Ask people you know who have used the professional you're thinking of hiring, and ask a representative for professional references.
