How To Choose a Window Company in Wauwatosa

Reliability is essential when it comes to choosing a window provider. However, your chosen company should also suit your priorities and appreciate your vision. Consider the following factors during your company search:

Window Cost by Type

When it comes to replacing your windows, value is paramount. Each window you replace should deliver optimal durability at an affordable price point. Although high-quality windows may cost more upfront, they often provide better long-term value due to their extended lifespan. The material, size, and style of your replacement windows have the greatest impact on your final cost. Single-hung windows often cost less due to their straightforward style and simple mechanisms, while new skylights cost more to prepare for and install. A professional can guide you through choosing the options that fit your requirements.

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$222-$1,365
Awning$322-$896
Bay$741-$5,499
Custom$330-$917
Casement$257-$1,487
Double-hung$120-$774
Egress$220-$549
Glass Block$44-$556
Picture$193-$1,426
Single-hung$87-$1,466
Skylight$110-$1,324
Sliding$253-$1,283
Storm$52-$363
Transom$269-$562

Window Material Cost

You'll also need to select a window material. Homeowners usually choose a material based on the local climate, energy efficiency objectives and aesthetic preferences. Aluminum windows are perfect for sleek, modern designs, but they cost more up-front. You'll pay less for wood windows 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$52-$1,466
Composite$530-$1,189
Fiberglass$87-$741
Vinyl$178-$1,650
Wood$265-$1,487

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 factor in the cost of labor, warranties, and any other extra expenses that your project may entail.

Experience and Training

The longer a window company has been operating, the better its workmanship will likely be. Talk with a company representative to learn more about its guarantees, public and private credentials, and experience. Company websites often have photo galleries demonstrating previous work technicians have done.

Licensing and Credentials

Wisconsin builders need a Dwelling Contractor Qualifier certification from the Department of Safety and Professional Services for most projects, including window replacement. The only exceptions are if a job is under $1,000 in value, or if your city doesn't require permits for window work.

Wisconsin is one of a few states that require continuing education for construction companies. A representative must take at least 12 hours of training every two years to keep their license. The state actively promotes trade and business best practices.

Types of Windows Offered

The kind of window you want should influence your company choice. Not every installer will necessarily be familiar with the types you want. A company website will provide more about the window types it focuses on, such as:

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

Customer Feedback

Reading other customers' stories is an excellent way to screen potential window companies. You can find customer reviews on websites like Trustpilot, the BBB, Google, and Yelp. Referrals can also help you in your company search. Ask each company you're interested in for a list of references, and talk to family and friends about who they use for window installations.
