The Best Replacement Windows – Choosing an Installation Company

best replacement windows

So you’ve picked out the best replacement windows for you, but how do you evaluate the installation company?  This half the battle as having great replacement windows installed by a less than great installer will ruin your day.

The first step is the easiest: read our page on common replacement window sales tricks.  These will not only help you avoid getting hoodwinked, but they will help to identify which companies are planning on treating you well BEFORE you bother meeting with them.

For instance, if a company requires both homeowners to be present you know you’re in for a sales pitch.  This isn’t something you should plan on enduring.  It should be used as a sign to avoid that company all together.  Just cross them off the list and move on.  There are plenty of great companies in your area and you absolutely do not need to deal with that kind of junk.

Once you have these companies crossed of your list it’s time to do a little research.  We’re not talking about spending every waking minute worrying about windows, but an ounce of prevention goes a long way…

I’d suggest taking a look through review sites.  You can find reviews on google and Angie’s List tends to provide a wealth of info too.

Once you have narrowed things down to 3-5 companies have them come out to take a look through the project and give you an exact quote.  If anybody gives you the runaround just send them on their way and move on to the next company.

We know this sounds like basic advice, but people get pressured into on gimmick or another every day.

Once you find a great company to install your great windows you’ll be sure you have the best replacement windows in your neighborhood.

Take a look through our pages on replacement window reviews and common sales gimmicks for more detailed info.

  1. Can’t stand when a company says we both have to be there. I had Power Windows come over when we had our 1+ year old. Of course the baby didn’t want to sit and listen to him and my wife didn’t want to be there. He keep saying, just a little longer, etc. The sales process is terrible. Any of those companies that want both of us there I tell them to pound sand because my wife could care less about windows.

  2. Do you have suggestions about the installation process? I have watched Youtube videos. Some show installers injecting foam between shims on both interior and again on exterior. Some just caulk both sides.

    1. It depends on the specifics of your installation. Many people are using foam now, but sometimes the gaps are too small. Find a great installation company and they’ll be able to show you the best way.
