Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the cost of window installation?
    The cost of window installation varies depending on factors such as the type and the size of the window, the condition of the existing window frame, the manufacturer, materials, and the complexity of the installation. On average homeowners can expect to pay between $626 and $1,716 per window for installation.
  • What types of windows do you install?
    We install a variety of window types including double hung, casement, sliding, bay, bow, and custom specialty windows. Our current feature product is North Star, but we also have installed Pella, Andersen, and Quaker units as well. There are several different types of windows installation available. The most common are full frame replacement, and pocket replacement installation. Full frame replacement involves removing the entire window, including the frame, and replacing it with a new window. Pocket replacement is a more cost-effective option that involves replacing only the window sash, not the frame. Both types of installation offer advantages and disadvantages, so it’s important to speak with a professional to determine which is best for your needs.
