How To Choose a Window Company in Carlisle

Each window company has varying offerings and approaches. To simplify the company search, keep these factors in mind:

Window Cost by Type

Replacing your windows is a substantial investment, so balancing cost with durability is important. Choosing cheap replacement windows could actually raise your overall cost, since they come with a reduced lifespan and more intensive maintenance needs. The size, material, and style of your new windows play the largest role in determining 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. It's advisable to consult a vetted window installer to figure out your best options.

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

Window TypesAverage Cost
Arched$225-$1,383
Awning$326-$908
Bay$751-$5,574
Custom$334-$929
Casement$260-$1,507
Double-hung$121-$784
Egress$223-$557
Glass Block$45-$564
Picture$196-$1,445
Single-hung$88-$1,486
Skylight$111-$1,342
Sliding$256-$1,301
Storm$53-$367
Transom$272-$570

Window Material Cost

Materials also help determine a window's cost. You might pick a material based on your energy efficiency goals, your desired look, and the local climate. 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$53-$1,486
Composite$537-$1,206
Fiberglass$88-$751
Vinyl$181-$1,672
Wood$268-$1,507

Other Window Replacement Costs

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

Experience and Training

Browse a company's website and contact a representative to learn more about its product and service offerings, pricing, and warranties. Many window companies also keep online photo galleries that present past projects.

Ensure that the company focuses on window replacement. The more specialized training its staff has, and the longer it has been in operation, the more likely it will provide high-quality service.

Licensing and Credentials

While Pennsylvania window installers don't need to hold a state license, they must still register with the attorney general's office and follow written contract requirements for residential jobs over $500 in value. Some cities, including Philadelphia, require licensure and have liability insurance standards.

Types of Windows Offered

No two businesses offer the same window styles and materials. Look for one that focuses on the type you want for your home.

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

Customer Feedback

Perhaps the best way to screen window companies for your job is to read what previous customers have said about them. You can find customer reviews on websites like Trustpilot, Yelp, Google, and the BBB. 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.
