How To Choose a Window Company in Plano

With Plano's robust local economy, you're sure to find a dependable window replacement company that aligns with your values and preferences. As you make calls, keep the following factors in mind:

Window Cost by Type

When it comes to window replacement, value is paramount. Each window you purchase should deliver unparalleled durability at an affordable price point. Although premium windows may cost more upfront, they often yield better long-term value due to their increased lifespan. The age of your home, together with the sizes, materials, and styles of replacement windows you select, can influence pricing. Single-hung windows often cost less due to their straightforward style and simple mechanisms, while a sweeping, custom-size picture window will cost more. It's wise to consult a reliable window installer to figure out your most suitable options.

This table shows average prices for various window types to give you an idea of what to expect.

Window TypesAverage Cost
Arched$220-$1350
Awning$318-$886
Bay$733-$5442
Custom$326-$907
Casement$253-$1471
Double-hung$118-$765
Egress$217-$543
Glass Block$43-$550
Picture$191-$1410
Single-hung$86-$1451
Skylight$108-$1310
Sliding$249-$1269
Storm$51-$358
Transom$266-$556

Window Material Cost

Materials also help determine a window's cost. You might select a material based on your energy efficiency goals, the local climate, and your desired look. For example, windows made of wood 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$51-$1451
Composite$524-$1177
Fiberglass$86-$733
Vinyl$176-$1632
Wood$262-$1471

Other Window Replacement Costs

Ask each window installer you're considering about warranty fees, labor costs, and permit fees. This will help you get a better picture of the overall expenses involved in the project.

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 window companies also keep online galleries that highlight past projects.

Ensure that the company specializes in window replacement. The more specific training its staff has, and the longer it has been in operation, the more likely it will deliver excellent workmanship.

Licensing and Credentials

To install windows in Texas, all a contractor must do is register with the Secretary of State. Some cities, most notably San Antonio, require window installers to hold liability insurance and pass a background check. Dallas and Fort Worth require window companies to register with the city, and Houston does not require licenses or registrations at all.

Types of Windows Offered

There are many replacement window types you can choose from, and it's important to find a company that specializes in the ones you want. Look on a company's website and reviews for any of these types:

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

Customer Feedback

Perhaps the best way to vet window companies for your job is to find out what previous customers have said about them. You can find customer reviews on websites like Google, Yelp, Trustpilot, and the BBB. Talk to people you know who have used the company you're interested in, and ask a representative for professional references.

Frequently Asked Questions About Window Replacement in Plano

Why should I hire a professional to install or replace my windows?

Window replacement is an important investment that greatly impacts your home's comfort and energy efficiency. Hiring a professional window company to supervise your project ensures your windows will be properly installed, operate effectively, and be properly insulated. Companies also typically include a guarantee that addresses required maintenance and most needed fixes.

What is the maintenance schedule for an average window, and how long will it last?

Windows don't have an indefinite lifespan, and most wood models are designed to serve your home for around two decades. Over time, weatherproofing materials weaken, framing contracts and expands, and window coatings deteriorate. These changes result in air leaks, energy loss, condensation, and other expensive problems necessitating repair or replacement.

Do window installers also work with blinds and coverings?

Maybe. Numerous installers work with both windows and blinds, so you can design a window covering solution that adds visual appeal and boosts your new windows' performance. However, based on your location, blind work can require a different license that a company might not have. During your company search, ask each representative about blind installation. If a company does not offer it, they might subcontract it to a different company or recommend a retailer that can help you with blinds.
