FAQs about Windows & Doors

At Window Installation Specialists, it’s our practice to provide our customers with all of the information they need to select the right windows and doors for their homes or businesses. Many of your FAQs may be answered below. If not, call us with your concerns.

Do you replace windows and doors in the winter?
Absolutely! We alter our normal working methods during the cold winter months to minimize mess and heat loss. We frequently have winter specials. Call Melissa today for details.

Note: We do NOT replace windows during polar vortex events; it's just too cold!

Do you fix broken windows?
If you are looking for someone to replace the glass of a broken window pane or fix a torn screen, we do not provide those services, but we can refer you to people who do. What we do is replace entire windows (and doors), which usually includes replacing the entire frame.

Do you install storm windows?
Windows aren't made the way they used to be. Today's modern windows are engineered for high-performance and energy efficiency, and storm windows are no longer necessary. (Old stained-glass windows are the exception to this.) You're better off replacing your old windows with modern windows that provide protection from the sun and the elements all year long.

If your concern is retaining the historic look of your home, there are plenty of quality modern replicas that will give you the look you want with the energy savings you need.

Why should I replace my windows and doors?
Replacement windows and doors save you money on expensive energy costs. A new window or door is easier to clean and maintain, saving you valuable time. Updating the look of your home or business with new replacement windows and doors adds more value to your investment.
