How To Choose a Window Company in Pittsburgh

With Pittsburgh's sheer size, you're sure to find a trustworthy window replacement company in line with 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 value is vital. Although premium windows may cost more upfront, they often yield better long-term value due to their increased lifespan. The overall cost of your replacement windows will depend on the particular sizes, materials, and styles 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 choosing the products that fit your preferences.

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$227-$1,395
Awning$329-$916
Bay$758-$5,622
Custom$337-$937
Casement$262-$1,520
Double-hung$122-$791
Egress$225-$561
Glass Block$45-$569
Picture$197-$1,458
Single-hung$89-$1,499
Skylight$112-$1,354
Sliding$258-$1,312
Storm$53-$371
Transom$275-$575

Window Material Cost

Replacement window prices also vary based on material. Each option gives you different benefits 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$53-$1,499
Composite$541-$1,216
Fiberglass$89-$758
Vinyl$182-$1,687
Wood$271-$1,520

Other Window Replacement Costs

Your total cost for new windows will also include applicable warranty fees, permit application fees, and labor. Be sure to discuss each of these elements with an estimator before committing to a window company.

Experience and Training

The longer a window installer has served your area, the better its workmanship will likely be. Contact a company representative to learn more about its experience, public and private credentials, and guarantees. Company websites often keep photo galleries showing off previous work technicians have done.

Licensing and Credentials

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

Types of Windows Offered

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

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

Customer Feedback

Perhaps the best way to prescreen window companies for your job is to find out what previous customers have said about them. Read customer reviews on sites such as Yelp, Google, and Trustpilot. 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.
