How do you know that the companies are reputable and reliable?
Fortunately, as a leading window installation company serving Sedalia, St. Louis 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!

St. Louis is located on the western bank of the Mississippi River near its confluence with the Missouri River. It is the second-largest city in the state of Missouri. Since 1876, it is an independent city, and hence it is not part of any county. It has a bi-state metropolitan area that stretches into the State of Illinois. The city has a raft of nicknames among them Gateway to the West, the Gateway City, Rome of the West, The Lou, The River City, Saint Lou, and The STL.
The city has a total surface area of 65.99 square miles. Land makes up 61.74 square miles, and water makes up 4.25square miles. It lays on an elevation of 466feet above sea level.St. Louis is served by the Interstates 44, 55, 64, 70, and 270.According to the 2010 Census, the city had a population of 319,294 residents. The 2019 estimates put the figures at 300,576.
St. Louis is the home of the St. Louis Cardinals, a Major League Baseball team. It is also home to St. Louis Blues of The National Hockey League and the St. Louis City SC, slated to begin playing in the Major League Soccer in 2023.The city boasts of three national research varsities. These are the University of Missouri-St. Louis Saint Louis University, and the Washington University in St. Louis.
St. Louis is home to ten Fortune 500 firms. These include Edward Jones Investments, Emerson Electric, Express Scripts, Centene,Reinsurance Group of America, and Graybar Electric.
The history of St. Louis goes back to February 14, 1764. It was founded by French fur traders Auguste Chouteau and Gilbert de St. Maxent. They named it for King Louis IX of France. When France lost the Seven Year's War, the region got ceded to Spain. It stayed that way until 1800 when it was taken back by France. In 1803, the United States purchased the area in the Louisiana Purchase.
St. Louis became the gateway and capital of the new territory after the Louisiana Purchase. When President Thomas Jefferson commissioned the famous Lewis-Clark Expedition, the expedition set out from St. Louis in May 1804 on the Missouri River. The expedition explorers returned to St. Louis on September 23, 1806, after they had reached the Pacific Ocean via the Columbia River in 1805. The two expedition leaders resided in St. Louis thereafter.
Due to its strategic location, with the Ohio River to the east, Missouri to the west, and the Mississippi to the north and south, St. Louis became a major base of interregional trade. In the 1840s there was an influx of German and Irish immigrants, very against the chagrin of some native-born Americans. By 1860, the population had risen to over 160,000 residents.
With many settlers from the South, Missouri was a slave state and by extension St. Louis. During the Civil War, the city was split in loyalties and was highly polarized. The Union blockade of traffic on the Mississippi River to the south dealt a blow to the city's economy. Although thiswas a slave state, it was surrounded by Free States, and some of the slaves escaped to Illinois and other neighboring states.
The completion of the Eads Bridge in 1874 boosted trade with the West. The bridge connected St. Louis to East St. Louis Illinois, and was a symbolic image until 1965, when the Gateway Arch Bridge was constructed.This city voted to secede from St. Louis County on August 22, 1876. It became an independent city officially in March 1877.
Towards the late 19th Century, the city continued to enjoy increased industrial growth. The Wainwright Building, one of the early skyscrapers was built in 1892 by architect Louis Sullivan. Several major corporations including the Anheuser-Busch Brewery, Success Automobile Manufacturing Company, and Desloge Consolidated Lead Company also set up shop in St. Louis.
St. Louis started the 20th Century on a high note. The city played host to the Olympics and the World’s Fair in 1904. It was the first city outside Europe to host the Olympics.In 1916, in the infamous Jim Crow Era, the city passed a residential segregation ordinance.
The NAACP went to court and successfully challenged the ordinances, but was struck down. Later, racial covenants were invented to prevent the sale of houses to non-Caucasians. Such covenants too were challenged in court, and in 1948 the U.S Supreme Court declared them unconstitutional. Up to the 1950s, there existed educational segregation, while de facto segregation went on until the 1970s.
St. Louis greatly expanded in the first half of the 20th Century and thus attracted high numbers of immigrants in search of a better life. That has continued, and the city attracts immigrants of different nationalities.
St. Louis is home to many symbolic landmarks that contribute richly to the history and heritage of the city. The most iconic of these is the Gateway Arch, the world's tallest arch and the highest manmade monument of the Western Hemisphere. It soars up to 630 feet.
Other notable landmarks in St. Louis include the St. Louis Art Museum, Missouri Botanical Garden, Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis the City Hal, City Museum, the Central Library, Old Courthouse, St. Louis Symphony, Union Station, St. Louis Science Center and the St. Louis Zoo.
