Frequently Asked Questions and Swift Solutions
Couldn't I order the Windows, Doors, or other products you offer and then install them myself or have someone I know install them?
You always have the ability to buy other brands of windows, doors, or other home improvement products, install them yourself, but the products we offer are exclusively sold to us because we are certified installation professionals. We cannot sell them to you uninstalled.
We offer a labor warranty on any products we install in your home, meaning we will service the product free of charge. There is also a warranty on the products, offered by our manufacturers, so you have peace of mind that your project will be done right - something you can't guarantee when doing the work yourself.
How do I know if my windows need to be replaced?
- Sticking or Sagging- Causing lack of Function
- Peeling Paint or Rotting Exterior- lowers appeal and value of home
- Drafty & Leaking Windows- Air coming in or leaking out increasing Utility Bills
- Foggy Windows- Condensation on or between Glass is caused by Seal Failure
Do you offer Warranties on your Windows?
Yes, our Window Manufacturers Marvin-Infinity and Gorrell, offer a variety of extended warranties on their products, and we also offer a labor warranty that includes servicing any product we have installed. Call for more details.
What is the difference between a Gorrell Window and a Marvin Window?
Both Companies offer premium grade window systems but Gorrell Window Products are made from vinyl whereas Marvin-Infinity Products are made from Fiberglass-technologies most advanced material. Gorrell and Marvin are both Family Owned and Operated companies that put time and care into customizing every order, unlike some of the large companies that mass produce quantities of windows to sell in bulk. Every window that we sell is made with quality, so whether you choose vinyl or fiberglass, rest assured you are getting the best products available in our industry.
How much does it cost to install a window?
The cost of window installation is dependent on the size of the window, the window options & brand you choose, and the details of the installation. There is no simple answer to that question, one of our professionals will need to measure the opening and find out the project details from you to be able to estimate on the cost of installation. Please give us a call and we would be happy to come to your home or the job site and give you an estimate on your project.

What is the lead time on installation?
Generally installation will occur 4-6 weeks after you sign up with us. We expect 2-3 weeks for a normal shipment to arrive from the manufacturer and then weather permitting; we will schedule installation following product arrival. Based on the season you could expect 6-8 weeks, because in the spring and summer months manufacturers are busy, extending shipment dates.
