As a Bay Area replacement window company, we meet with a lot of homeowners in Pleasanton, Livermore, San Jose, and the surrounding areas. In their meetings with us, they typically ask lots of questions about the windows we sell—their features, their prices, their energy efficiency, etc. They want to make sure they are getting the best windows for the best possible price, and we are happy to answer all of their questions to make sure they have a good understanding of our products.
Something we get asked about less often is the replacement window installation process. Understandably, installation isn’t as “sexy” as things like window glazing systems, Energy Star standards, and frame styles, but knowing about the installation of your windows is just as important.
Who Will Be Installing Your Replacement Windows?
The first thing you should ask your Bay Area replacement window company when it comes to installation is who will be installing the windows. You don’t need to know their specific names, but you should know if they are professional window installers or subcontractors. Many replacement window companies will “sub out” the installation of the windows they sell. When this happens, it means that your windows could be installed by someone with little to no experience with replacement windows. They may be experienced in general construction, but not specifically trained in window replacement.
Why does this matter? Because proper installation of replacement windows is paramount to getting the best possible performance out of them. Even if you buy the most energy-efficient windows available, if they aren’t properly installed, you won’t see the energy savings you might have been hoping for.
When you go with a replacement window company that provides professional window installation, on the other hand, you will have your windows installed by people who are familiar with the best installation methods and who are familiar with the products they are working with.
At Custom Exchange we only use our own team of highly trained window installation experts. Here’s what some of our past customers have had to say about our installation teams:
On the job day, Robert and Joseph came to my house on time. They were impressively efficient. Beautifully done job. They customed trims on site to make the windows fit perfectly. Robert did a very good job in detail.” – Irene L., Fremont
[The Custom Exchange] crew is hard working, professional, courteous, are more than happy to answer any questions one might have, and very efficient. They installed 19 windows in 2 days which included 3 large picture windows as well as a new construction fit. The windows look great and we are very satisfied with the work they did.” – Michael Y., Oakland
We recently replaced seven windows and a sliding glass door, and Custom Exchange did a fantastic job. The crew clearly knew what they were doing — it turned out they had worked with Michal for many years. They were also careful around items in the house and did a great job at cleanup. I really had the feeling throughout that we picked the right company.” – Jay S., Livermore
We were impressed by [the Custom Exchange] team of installers–2 guys who arrived early, worked neatly and efficiently and installed 15 new windows in one day, about 7.5 hours. They seemed very experienced and even took the time to talk to me about properly caulking the exterior of our home. Other companies had quoted that the job would take 2, possibly even 3 days, and one company seemed nervous about a large upper story window that we needed to replace. They made it look easy, and we are enjoying how much cooler our home is this summer.” – Pang Houa T., Castro Valley
As you can see, our customers are consistently impressed with the level of experience and service of our replacement window installers. They take pride in what they do and deliver great results for our customers.
