Choosing a Houston Window Replacement Contractor
Without a doubt finding the right company to replace your windows is every bit as important as the type of replacement windows you buy. You can have the best insulated replacement windows that can be found in the marketplace but it will make no difference if they are not installed and sealed correctly.
Here are some tips for hiring a window replacement company:
– Do Some Preliminary Window Research
Most people who have no experience installing windows will not know the pricing or terminology for them. That is why it is a good idea to do some internet research on windows and maybe also take a look at them in person at your local home improvement center. This will give you a good idea what the roofing contractors you will be interviewing are talking about.
– Do an Internet Search
After you have a general idea what type of replacement windows you want to use, do an internet search for companies to install them. Make sure you check reviews of the companies you are interested in that are NOT on their website.
– Get At Least Three Detailed Bids
It is always recommended to get at least three bids from different window replacement contractors in the Houston area. Make sure these bids are detailed and are broken out by cost per task too.
– Check References
Make sure if the company you are considering hiring furnished you with references that you follow through and check on them. Don’t shy away from the hard questions as you will most likely be surprised how honest people will be with you.
– Sign a Detailed Contract Only
Make sure the contract includes the written details of everything you expect from the window replacement company and also spells out clearly such things as warranties, guarantees and the installment payments when certain portions of the project are completed.
If you follow these steps we are quite confident that they will lead you right back to us because we work hard to satisfy each and every one of our window replacement customers.
Types of Windows
It would take an article five times the size of this page to go into detail about all the different types of replacement windows you can install in your Houston area home. That is a good thing because that means you should have no problem finding a window type that looks good to you and is well insulated.
Keep in mind when shopping that all replacement windows are not 100% vinyl. Some have decorative wood on the outside or the entire trim area.
Here are the most popular types of replacement windows:
– Double-Hung Windows
These are the number one seller in the replacement window market and there are several reasons for this. They are made to install easily for one and they also provide excellent insulation value for your Houston home. Double-hung windows also conveniently drop down in both the top and bottom sections for easy cleaning.
– Single-Hung Windows
These are right up there in sales with double-hung windows and they offer the same advantages as they do also. The only major difference is only the bottom panel drops down when you go to clean these types of windows.
– Sliding windows
Not everybody like windows that slide up and down. Sliding windows open side to side much like a patio door. They are well insulated too and can provide a unique look if used right.
Keep in mind that our expert window sales team members are always here to answer your questions about replacement windows. After all we want you to make a replacement window choice that leaves you very satisfied with your purchase.

Average Cost to Replace Windows
Determining the cost to install new vinyl windows on your Houston, Texas home is no easy task with all the variables that are involved. For starters there is an extremely wide price range for even the same type of windows. Just as there are economy car manufacturers and luxury car manufacturers in the world, so too is the case when it comes to vinyl replacement windows.
Most companies that sell windows are big enough and smart enough to be competitively priced. So if you do a little research in person or on the internet yourself you can get a good idea of what the type of window a contractor is offering will cost. Often the sales from the supplier come down to volume discounts and the extras they offer those that purchase from them.
The biggest area where there might be a price discrepancy is in the installation cost of the project. Please note that you have to be careful here too. Some companies that offer dirt cheap pricing might send some inexperienced worker to your Houston home that has very little time spent actually installing these types of windows.
Benefits of Using Energy Efficient Windows
If you walked into a crowded room of people and asked them who in the room likes to save money, it’s a pretty safe bet everyone in the room would raise their hand. Based on that fact it is a wonder that many homes still have old single pane, non-insulated windows in them; especially when a nice double hung window can save them a lot of money on their home energy costs. They can have quite a dramatic effect on your yearly energy bill to say the least; enough for them to pay for themselves over time.
There are other advantages to using vinyl replacement windows on your Houston home too. For one they will make your home look much better and they will also add value to it too. If you don’t believe how much better they look than old non-insulated windows, then find a Houston neighborhood with some older homes and you will find some with each to compare too; you will be taken back by the dramatic difference in looks.
