Home window replacement and repair in Cleveland

skyline

Windows usually last 15 - 30 years or more before needing replacement or repair. If you notice any of the following, contact a window company in Cleveland:

  • Problems opening or closing a window
  • Damage to any part of a window (e.g., cracking, rotting, warping)
  • Drafts of air nearby a window
  • Noise from outside
  • Fading furniture, carpet or flooring
  • Decreased curb appeal due to your windows

Most window companies in Cleveland will visit your home at no charge to examine your windows and help you determine if repair is an option.

If your window isn’t repairable and you need home window replacement in Cleveland, there are two main types to know about:

  • Replacement window inserts fit into an existing frame that is in good condition. Inserts preserve most window parts and take less time to install. Consider inserts if you want to replace your existing window with another of the same size and style.
  • Full-frame replacement windows completely replace existing windows, down to the opening in the home. Full-frame replacement is necessary if a window frame is beyond repair. With full-frame replacement windows, a homeowner can significantly change styles and sizes.

Replacement windows come in many different styles and materials. Styles vary in their appearance and operation. Materials differ by look, insulating properties, maintenance requirements and durability.

Replacement window styles

Style Description
Single-hung Lower panel moves up and down; upper panel doesn’t move
Double-hung Lower and upper panel both move up and down
Awning Hinged at top with an outward-moving panel
Casement Hinged at side with an outward-moving panel
Sliding One or more panels move horizontally
Bay/bow windows Three to six windows meet at angles and project outward
Picture Fixed (doesn’t open or close)

Replacement window materials

Material Description
Vinyl Common and affordable choice; energy-efficient and low-maintenance
Aluminum Sleek; light and strong; durable; low-maintenance; lower cost
Wood Classic look; natural insulator; requires maintenance; more expensive
Fiberglass Superior strength, weatherability and durability; energy-efficient; higher cost

Replacement windows also have different glass, or glazing, options, like double- and triple-pane glass, low-emissivity coating to block ultraviolet rays and gas filling for extra energy efficiency.

How much does window replacement cost in Cleveland?

Cleveland homeowners pay an average of $300 - $1,000 per replacement window. Window installation cost is $100 - $300 per replacement window.

The exact cost of home window replacement in Cleveland depends on these factors:

  • Replacement inserts versus full-frame replacement
  • Number of windows being replaced
  • Window size
  • Window style
  • Window material
  • Window glazing

Many window companies in Cleveland offer financing options to help customers pay for replacement windows. Alternatively, Cleveland homeowners can apply for a loan with reduced interest rates from participating banks through Ohio’s ECO-Link program.

How to choose a window installer in Cleveland

Look for a registered contractor in Cleveland both selling and installing replacement windows. Registered contractors in Cleveland are insured and bonded. The city doesn’t maintain an online list of registered contractors, so call (216) 664-2884 to verify a contractor’s registration.

Once you set up in-home consultations with several well-reviewed contractors, make sure to ask these questions:

  • How many years have you been selling and installing windows in Cleveland?
  • Do you have a list of customer references?
  • Who will be doing installation? What training do staff have? Do they have certification from any professional organizations, like the American Window and Door Institute or InstallationMasters?
  • How long will it take to receive my windows? How does the installation process work and how long does it take?
  • Are your windows ENERGY STAR-certified? Do they have NFRCNFRC labels so I can compare energy performance ratings?
  • What warranties/guarantees do you offer with windows and installation?

Get at least three written estimates before choosing a window installer in Cleveland. Check carefully that the estimate includes a summary of work to be performed, window descriptions, parts and labor costs, projected start and finish dates and permit information. As a general rule, a City of Cleveland permit is required for installing windows.
