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.

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!

Jefferson City, Missouri, is 28.32 miles to the northeast of the village. Tuscumbia sits by the banks of the Osage River.
Tuscumbia has a total surface area of 0.34 square miles, all land. It sits at an elevation of 577 feet above sea level, and had a population of 203 residents during the 2010 Census. By then, it was designated a village. Estimates by the Census Bureau in 2019 showed that the population figure remained unchanged.

Local folklore tells about the origin of this town, which got named in honor of another town that goes by the same name, in Alabama.
Tuscumbia, Alabama, a town along the banks of the Tennessee River, is a sister town to Tuscumbia, MO. Tuscumbia got its name from Tash-Ka-Ambi, a Cherokee Indian word that translates to the warrior who kills. There are many recorded similarities between the two towns stretching back to their formative years.
These towns are the only ones in the entire nation that share the same distinct Indian name. Both came into existence after white settlers moved into the respective areas and found friendly Indians with whom they engaged in trade. As a result of this trade, the settlements expanded and gave rise to these towns.
Another peculiar similarity between the two Tuscumbia towns is in the names of some of their earliest settlers. In Tuscumbia, Alabama, the family of a man named Michael Dickson was the first settlers there. That's compared to a man named William P. Dickson, who is the person who gave Tuscumbia its name.
While Michael Dickson went on to be elected as the County Court Clerk in Franklin County, AL, and serve for 16 years, William P. Dickson, on the other hand, served as the County Court Clerk of Miller County, MO, for 16 years too. Both towns’ respective counties got formed on the 6th of February. Both the Tuscumbia towns are the county seats for their counties.
Tuscumbia was found in July 1837. J.B. and J.P. Harrison donated the present-day location of the town. It became the first town in Miller County to be surveyed. Miller County got organized through the State Legislature, which the Governor approved on the 6th of February. In December of 1837, Miller County's first post office was opened in Tuscumbia with J.P. Harrison as the first-ever postmaster. The post office is still operational to date.
The years that followed the town's establishment saw numerous businesses set up and thrive in the area. General stores, a dry goods, and groceries store, a hotel, a publication called The Vindicator, and a blacksmith and wagon maker were some of the businesses set up in the town. There was also a mill and a saloon. By 1889, there was an attorney and counselor at law and a drug store with practicing doctors.
By then, the town had three hotels; a livery barn, a mail and passenger hack line, and a lumberyard were some of the other enterprises in the town. Tuscumbia continued to grow well into the 20th Century with infrastructural development, including roads, telephone lines, and electricity.
Tuscumbia has two public schools under the Miller County R-III Schools, and these are the Miller County Elementary School and the Tuscumbia High School. Miller County Health Center offers a range of medical services in the village. The Miller County Sheriff's office and Miller County Court House are located in Tuscumbia, MO. The Tuscumbia Fire Protection District is always on call in case of any emergencies.
There are several affordable and idyllic accommodation options in Tuscumbia, MO. these include rental homes, cabins, hotel rooms, and lake houses. Due to its proximity to Lake of the Ozarks and its surrounding nature attractions, the village continues to grow into a perfect tourist destination. Other places worth mentioning in this town are the Miller County Historical Society Museum and the Panther Creek Campground & Horse Trails.
