For example, are vinyl windows a good idea? Can you put a new window anywhere in your home? There are lots of questions like these when it comes to window installations. Here are six of the most common inquiries we receive.

1. How Do I Know My Window Needs to Be Replaced?

Window Contractors

There are a few signs that it's time to replace your windows, starting off with whether they are more than 15 years old. If not, other signs that new window installation is needed include sticking or refusing to open, high energy bills, and an inability to maintain temperature.

2. What Types of Windows Can Be Installed?

If we're talking about an existing window in your home, there's a good chance any reputable home improvement company can install it. But you want to consult and confirm your window type with the company before getting started. Some of the most common types of windows that we install or replace include:

  • Single-hung windows

  • Awning windows

  • Bay windows

  • Bow windows

  • Casement windows

  • Garden windows

  • Double-hung windows

  • Picture windows

  • Sliding windows

New Energy Efficient Windows

Climate plays a big factor in which windows are best, and for Texas homeowners, a high-grade vinyl is the best choice. Because energy-inefficient windows are the single largest source of energy loss in a home, replacing your old windows with vinyl windows can reduce energy bills significantly.

6. Can My Windows Be Customized?

Yes! It will take a consultation to confirm, but it's likely feasible to replace or customize any window in your home. Since this may involve contractor or architectural work, it's important to ensure the company you hire is insured, licensed and offers the proper warranties.
