What should a window cost?

The average homeowner has no idea what a quality window should cost. We believe you shouldn’t spend too much or too little your windows.

The cost of replacing your windows varies greatly depending on your needs and how long you intend to own your home. Here is a cost comparison for one replacement window.

Who can I trust?

If you Google “replacement windows Indiana”, how many different contractors or companies would come up? Hundreds! Many claim to have the best quality at the lowest price. So how do you even begin to determine who you can trust?

A five year study of the window industry in central Indiana showed the following results…

In January of 2000, 99 retail companies were listed in the yellow pages. Less than 1 year later in December of 2000, 17 of those companies were out of business. Then just 5 years later in January of 2005, 72 the remaining companies were out of business. Various factors determined their demise such as lack of profits, ownership changes, and law suits.

So what does this mean to you?

All of those companies, with all those attractive deals made false promises they couldn’t stand behind.

Which means that if you had purchased from a company that was now out of business, you were back to square one and in search of a better product and better service to fix previous mistakes.

What questions should I ask about window warranties?

How long is the warranty?

Never believe the term "Lifetime!" The average "Lifetime Warranty" is only seven years. The White Oak Construction warranty is for as long as you own your home, no questions asked. Our warranty is backed by over 30 years of outstanding service.

What is covered under the warranty and what is not?

It is very important to find out the details about what the warranty covers. All hardware and materials are covered on your White Oak products. We even replace broken glass.

Prorated or Non-Prorated?

What’s the difference? A Prorated warranty means that the warranty will only cover a portion of the replacement cost based on a certain period of time. The White Oak products are non-prorated, which means that 100% of the replacement costs are covered under the warranty.

Is your warranty transferable?

White Oak warranties are transferable. If and when you sell your home, you'll want a warranty that will transfer to the new owner. This will help you recoup your initial investment and add value to your home.

Will new windows reduce my energy costs?

According to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, windows are the single biggest cause of energy loss in the American home. Accounting for over 70% of all heating and cooling loss, inefficient windows and doors can really inflate household expenses, in some cases without the homeowner’s knowledge.

Here’s an example:

Let's examine a 3' x 5' wooden double-hung window, with a leak of just 1/16” of an inch around the frame and sash. That leak in one window adds up to hole more than 13 inches square, the "size of a brick!" If you have the average of 12 windows in your home, you have a hole the size of 12 bricks. It's like trying to heat and cool your home with a window open, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Will installing new windows add to the resale value of my home?

“These days, buyers shop for homes with energy efficiency in mind. Old, drafty single-pane windows are a major turn off. Energy Star claims that adding Energy Star-rated windows can save you up to $500 a year in heating and cooling costs by making your home more energy efficient.

According to HGTV, you can expect to recoup 60%-90% of your costs when you invest in energy-efficient windows. You can also receive a green energy tax credit of 10% for this upgrade, as long as you install Energy Star-rated windows. You might also qualify for additional credits from your state, or even your utility company.”
