    How To Choose a Window Company in Reading

    It's crucial to find a window company that meets your unique values, needs, and preferences. Consider the following points during your search:

    Window Cost by Type

    Replacing your windows is a major purchase, so balancing cost with quality is important. Although premium windows may come with a higher initial price tag, they often yield better long-term value due to their longer lifespan. The age of your home, together with the sizes, materials, and styles of windows you opt for, can influence pricing. Single-hung windows often cost less due to their straightforward style and simple mechanisms, while new skylights cost more to prepare for and install. It's wise to speak with a trusted installer to figure out your ideal 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$244-$1499
    Awning$353-$984
    Bay$814-$6042
    Custom$362-$1007
    Casement$281-$1633
    Double-hung$131-$850
    Egress$241-$603
    Glass Block$48-$611
    Picture$212-$1566
    Single-hung$95-$1611
    Skylight$120-$1454
    Sliding$277-$1409
    Storm$57-$398
    Transom$295-$617

    Window Material Cost

    You'll also need to pick a window material. Homeowners frequently make their selection by considering 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$57-$1611
    Composite$581-$1307
    Fiberglass$95-$814
    Vinyl$196-$1812
    Wood$290-$1633

    Other Window Replacement Costs

    Your contractor will factor the price for your windows and the value of their services into its total estimate. Make sure to take into account the cost of installation, warranties, and any other additional costs that your project may need.

    Experience and Training

    Peruse a company's website and chat with a representative to learn more about its product and service offerings, pricing, and warranties. Many companies also keep online portfolios that exhibit past projects.

    Ensure that the company focuses on window replacement. The more specialized training its staff has, and the longer it has been in business, the more likely it will deliver top-notch service.

    Licensing and Credentials

    While Pennsylvania window contractors 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 companies offer the same window styles and materials. Look for one that specializes in the type you want for your home.

    • Awning
    • Bay
    • Bow
    • Casement
    • Crank-out
    • Custom
    • Double- or single-hung
    • Egress
    • Garden
    • Jalousie
    • Picture
    • Sliding
    • Skylight
    • Specialty
    • Storm
    • Transom
    • Vent
    Also, check the kind of window framing materials a company works with. Each material has distinct price points, life spans, and energy performance capabilities. Common materials include composite, aluminum, vinyl, fiberglass and wood.

    Customer Feedback

    Perhaps the best way to screen window companies for your job is to find out what previous customers have said about them. Trustworthy sources for customer reviews include Google, 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.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Window Replacement in Reading

    How could new windows help my energy efficiency?

    Reading homeowners could potentially save $300 each year by installing efficient windows. They'll also decrease their property's carbon dioxide emissions by 290 pounds per year.

    According to the national Department of Energy, as much as 33% of a house's HVAC usage is to compensate for the heat or cold entering through windows. Energy-efficient windows help keep heat out in the summertime and retain heat in the wintertime, both protecting your comfort and saving you money.

    Are there tax incentives for installing energy-efficient windows?

    Yes. No matter where you're located, you can claim a federal tax credit of up to $3,200 per year on up to 30% of your window replacement's cost. Further, most state and some local authorities offer tax credits of their own. We recommend checking with your local government for specific information about tax incentives available in your area.

    What are some important metrics to know when I shop for replacement windows?

    You can determine the quality of a window by looking at some key numbers, including the following:
    • Air leakage rating, which indicates how tight a window's seal is
    • Condensation resistance, which rates how a window manages moisture
    • U-factor, which shows a window's temperature-insulating capability
    • Visible transmittance, which shows how much visible light passes through a window
    • Solar heat gain coefficient, which evaluates how much heat from sunlight can pass through the window
