5 Things You Must Know Before Hiring
A Window Replacement Company
Don’t Choose A Colorado Front Range Window
Company Until You Look At Their Track Record
It’s not something everyone in the window industry likes to talk about, but the truth is that the quality of window replacement companies varies.
We are not saying that most Colorado Front Range window companies are trying to scam people. (There are always a few bad apples, but that doesn’t mean most are like that).
It doesn’t even mean that most window installation contractors are sloppy or don’t care.
But the truth is – just like in any industry – there are very few companies that truly stand out. There just not many companies that you can count on for top-quality results every time.
A simple fact proves this point: the majority of window companies fail within the first 3 to 5 years of launching. In a market that has that many unstable companies, you should always check that your window company can meet the following 5 criteria:
(And checking that your window company can meet all 5 of these points is not looking for negatives. It’s simply a sensible way to protect yourself and set yourself up for a positive experience with window replacement results you’ll love).
The 5 Things You Must Know About Your Window Company
With the fact that the majority of window companies go out of business in 5 years or less, Colorado Front Range homeowners need to be careful about who they hire. Many contractors fail because of poor financial stability, a less than professional team, and sometimes problems with the quality of the windows.
That’s why you should look for the exact opposite – a company that has been in business for 10, 20 or even 25+ years. It’s is a great sign that you are dealing with a rock-solid local company that keeps its promises.
This one is pretty straightforward: have the window company earned the Better Business Bureau’s highest rating of A+? That’s not the only thing that matter when looking at a company, but you should use it as a minimum standard to verify that a company is ethical and above board.
This is where a window company can really start to separate itself from other choices. If you have hundreds of other homeowners leaving 5-star reviews on an independent site like Google Reviews, this tells you that the company has a long and proven track record.

Most window companies offer pretty ordinary windows. For example:
- The glass in them is double-pane, instead of triple-pane.
- The frames are hollow vinyl or foam-filled, instead of a frame reinforced throughout with High Density Resin.
- The various other parts and components of the window are nothing special, instead of being of the highest quality.
Always look for a company that truly believes in the superior quality of the windows they install and can actually explain what makes their window product better.

The warranty is your peace of mind that the time and expense of replacing your windows will be worth it and that you’ve made a good investment in your home. And that you won’t get stuck with a lemon or a defective product should there be a problem years down the line.
But it’s not enough to get the surface promises of your window warranty. Always dig in and get the exact details of your window warranty. Don’t settle for hearing that a window warranty “lasts a lifetime.” Ask what that actually means – a warranty’s length should always be crystal clear.
Similarly, always find out what’s in the fine print of the warranty. You may be shocked to learn that some warranties exclude coverage for damage caused by things like “normal weathering.”
Not all exclusions and loopholes go that far, but you should know exactly what is excluded and why.
