Evaluate the Need

Is it really time for a replacement?  Some signs, such as condensation or slight cosmetic damage, are actually perfectly normal.  Others, like water stains, leakage and wood rot, warrant an immediate replacement.  But to be sure, get in contact with us.  We will come to your home and help you decide if replacement is needed.

Once you have determined a need for window replacement…

Choose the Style

Do you like the style of window you already have or would you like to try a new look or operation?  Windows come in all shapes and sizes.  Some of the most popular are the Casement and Double Hung:


A casement window is hinged on the side and opens much like a door.  It is the best option for maximum airflow.



Double hung windows have two movable sashes.  Both top and lower sashes slide up and down.  This creates air flow at multiple levels.


Other window styles we offer: Awning, Bay and Bow, Corner, Picture, Single Hung, Sliding, and Specialty Shapes

Contact us at 651-464-0234!  We would be happy to help you choose the right style for your home.

Determine a Budget

The cost of windows can vary greatly depending on features, options, and installation requirements.  It’s important to decide approximately how much you would like to spend on your window replacement project.  If you have several windows to replace, we could discuss spreading the installation out over a few months.  We also have excellent financing options and accept all major credit cards.

Decide on the Material

We partner with some of the best window manufacturers (Marvin, Alside, Sunrise) to bring you the highest quality products in vinyl, fiberglass and wood.  Our experienced window replacement professionals can help explain the benefits of each material so that you can make an informed choice.

  • Maintenance-free vinyl frames are the most cost-effective choice for replacement windows. If you like the look of wood, you can add a wood grain finish to the vinyl frames.
  • Maintenance-free fiberglass windows are another option that provides year-round energy efficiency. Fiberglass windows come in a variety of colors and can be paired with wood interior frames.
  • Wood windows are also an excellent choice when it comes to the frame for your new windows.  Even though they are not maintenance-free, wood windows are easy to maintain.

Accessorize with Design Options

Stains, colors, hardware finishes, shades, screens, grid styles, glass options!  The possibilities are endless and each adds a unique flair to your project!
