How do you know that the companies are reputable and reliable?
Fortunately, as a leading window installation company serving Sedalia, Columbia and surrounding areas, we know what homeowners are looking for when it comes to having replacement windows installed. Hiring the right window replacement contractor is just as important as the actual replacement windows themselves! We install the following types of windows:
Here's how to make sure your replacement windows installation goes as smoothly as possible:
Every home is different and for that reason, no two window replacement projects are alike. It's a good idea to research different window installation options since many window installers are familiar with only a few types of windows. For example, if you want to install energy-efficient windows, your windows contractor may recommend a PVC or fiberglass window. But even among those options you have different levels of window efficiency in terms of letting in air and sunlight.
Understanding not just the type of window you want, but the type of materials you choose for it will have a lasting impact on the quality of your window installation, and is just as important as hiring your replacement window installer! Beyond the windows themselves, it's important that when receiving quotes from your windows contractors, that you be ready to ask them important questions, many of which we've detailed for you below.
Window replacement bids should be more than just a price. The best window replacement quotes should include the types of materials and products being used as well as whether or not materials and labor are included in the price. The right bid also includes a start and end date. In short, the more specific the bid, the better.
You should also ask that the bid include payment terms. Never agree to pay the full amount up front, no matter how good of a deal it looks like. Generally speaking, most windows contractors will ask for 20-30% up front and the rest paid along the way or immediately once the job is done to your satisfaction.
One of the most important things to consider during your window installation is what happens if something goes wrong years down the road. Be sure that you're covered according to the manufacturer's warranty.
A standard warranty is around 10 years and a good contractor will also include a workmanship warranty of at least two years to protect against any issues that may arise from installation of your replacement windows. The main reason why most windows break after installation is due to faulty installation, so be sure to have this part of the warranty specified in writing before you choose a window replacement company.
In addition to checking the references of your windows contractor, also check the references of the windows manufacturer. You want to choose not only a reliable windows installer, but quality, well-made windows. Ask to see photos from other projects that are similar to yours and make sure to ask how long the company has been in business. You want to know how the company resolves issues as well as whether or not they stand behind their work. You want a company that works with windows consistently.

Last but certainly not least, before starting a project you'll want to be sure that your windows contractor meets the proper requirements for your local area. That includes whether or not your jurisdiction requires a permit and if the contractor is properly licensed or registered for the type of work you need performed.
Ask to make sure that the windows installation company has the proper documentation and is licensed, bonded and insured. This not only protects you in case there is an accident, but it also protects the company and is vital to ensuring that you're not hit with a big claim from your homeowner's insurance in the event of an injury on the job!

Nestled in the middle of Missouri is the so-called ‘Athens of Missouri’ A.K.A Columbia. The city was recently dubbed Missouri’s fastest-growing city. Formed a hundred years ago, it all began in the 1800s when people from Virginia and Kentucky started settlements in Boonslick. By 1820, the first house was built in Columbia- none other by Thomas Duly. His first settlement is only the first to come, as nowadays, Columbia is known for its great architecture, with the colleges around the city reflecting the years of artistic reflection in the neo-gothic architecture phase. Inspirations throughout this time are littered throughout the city, evidently seen by the surrounding monuments and City Halls in Columbia.
Columbia is the hub of the youth, with colleges seen around the city. There are so many, that it even gained the title of being a ‘College Town’, with Universities and Colleges alike circling the town; the University of Missouri, for example, is highly respectable due to their love for different cultures and arts. This love is shared throughout the people of Columbia. The students of the universities here regularly produce plays and movies in the Jesse Auditorium and the Missouri Theatre Center for the Arts. It’s safe to say that the community are huge movie buffs, with filmmakers even using Columbia as a regular site for their movie productions.
Visitors and locals alike can also visit the Museum of Art and Archeology for free, where over 10,000 pieces are located. It’s no question that the people of Columbia are a bunch of forward-thinking individuals, you can even go through the Columbia Public Library, where loads of students around Columbia study.
As mentioned above, the people of Columbia aren’t shy in producing or taking part in artful theatrical productions or movies. Just a few years ago, the city was used as the main setting for the movies ‘You’re Next’ and ‘Box Elder’. This doesn’t end there, however, as the students of Columbia also conduct their own plays and musicals with productions running all throughout the year. Stephens College is just one to name when talking about the talent seen in Columbia’s performing arts. Though, it can be said that this passion began long before their college days.
Teenagers in Columbia high schools take on the challenge of doing their own productions of musicals during spring. They make use of the theatres mentioned above and partake in recreations of their favorite classic hits such as Annie. Their talent doesn’t stop there, they also set up live shows of improv performances. It’s always such a delight to see people nurturing their gifts and talents, especially as one day these kids may very well be seen on the big screens at nearby movie houses or on Broadway.
The community of Columbia is a well-rounded bunch, they also partake in doing fun and sporty activities, hosting a number of national baseballs, football, and basketball games. Back in 2007, the NCAA Baseball Championship used the Taylor Stadium to host one of the biggest games that year. A far cry from Columbia’s usual artistic activities. Throughout the years, Columbia has also partaken in hosting non-profit programs for people’s livelihoods and health.
Littered with numerous cultures and fuelled by diversity, people also relish the fact that Columbia has great cuisine, where college students everywhere can go to delicious bars and restaurants, with some of the establishments even being over a hundred years old.
The beauty of Columbia is well known throughout the United States of America, considered as a treasured city by many around the United States of America. Aside from the countless plays and performances, you can spot throughout the city, you can also see beautiful preservation sites of the United States of America’s nature hallmarks like the Wildlife Refuge, Rock Bridge Memorial State Park, Big Muddy National Fish, and the Mark Twain National Forest. All of which are being protected by Columbia. Only in Columbia can you spot the Best Urban Trail as declared by the USA Today’s Choice Awards a couple of years ago, the MKT trail. Another preservation project in which plenty of residents love traversing in.
