How do you know that the companies are reputable and reliable?
Fortunately, as a leading window installation company serving Sedalia, Springfield 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.
Fortunately, you'll be glad to know that at US Quality Construction, our specialties include replacement windows, replacement siding, decking and roofing. That's all we do, and we're incredibly good at it, as evinced by the dozens of five star reviews we've received from delighted homeowners across Missouri!
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!

The city sits at an elevation of 1,299 feet above sea level and is served by US Route 60, Route 65, and Route 160, and Interstate 44.

In 2010, 35,453 families were living in the city, and 69,754 households. Springfield, Mo is nicknamed the 417 after the city's area code. It also has another nickname, Queen City of the Ozarks, and is also referred to as The Birthplace of Route 66.
In 1820, one year before Missouri became a state, John Polk and Madison Campbell, two brothers from Tennessee, set out on a prospecting trip to southwest Missouri. They found the area inhabited by the Indian tribes of Kickapoo, Osage, and Delaware.
In February 1830, yet another pair of siblings from Tennessee, John and William Fulbright hewed off 160 acres of land around Jones Spring. William Fulbright is documented as the person who built the first cabin in what would become Springfield, MO, near what is today 1200 block of West College Street.
In March of 1830, the Campbell brothers set camp near a natural well or a spring. John P. Campbell wanted to claim the land surrounding the well and turn it into his farm. He, therefore, took out a knife and proceeded to carve his name on an ash tree on the land. The spot today is known as Founder's Park. These would be the first settlements of Springfield, MO.
In 1833 John Polk Campbell was instrumental in the organization of the Greene County. He served as a county clerk, and his house was also the county’s first courthouse.In 1835, John gave 50 acres of land towards the construction of a town to be the county seat. They set aside two acres, designated as the public square, and then he sold lots to new settlers and began laying out plans for the construction of a town that was modeled after his hometown of Columbia. By then, the town had approximately 500 residents.
Springfield, Mo was incorporated in 1838. In 1838, the US government enforced Indian Removal, which featured the Cherokee being forcibly displaced from their tribal homelands in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee. They were moved to Indian Territory. During the forceful relocation, thousands of the Cherokees lost their lives. As a result, the journey came to be referred to as The Trail of Tears. The Trail of Tears made its way through the Springfield area via what's called today the Old Wire Road.
Springfield, MO, was the stage for some battles during the American Civil War. When the war started, the town was split in its loyalties. The settlers in the town came from both the north as well as the south. There were also German immigrants. As a result, both The Union and The Confederate armies sought to take and control the strategically important town.
On August, 10, 1861 the Confederates won in the Battle of Wilson's Creek, which took place a few miles southwest of Springfield. During the clash, General Nathaniel Lyon became the first Union general to die in the Civil War. October 25, 1861, saw Major Charles Zagonyi lead an attack against the Confederates in what is known as the First Battle of Springfield. It became the only victory by the Union soldiers in southwestern Missouri. The Second Battle of Springfield took place on January 8, 1863, and the Confederates withdrew in the evening.
Springfield, MO, was the stage for the first-ever recorded shoot-out in the nation. This was between Wild Bill Hickok, who shot and killed Davis Tutt. The shootout made national news. Another dark blot in the city's history is the lynching of three African-American men by a white mob on April 14, 1906. The mob accused the men of sexually assaulting a white woman but later evidence proved the three to be innocent of the accusations.
Springfield in the 1950s ranked third nationally for originating network television programs. Between 1955 and 1961, there were four nationally broadcasted series that originated from the city. Ozark Jubilee was one of the programs by ABC, and it is credited with popularizing country music nationally.
