Window repair and installation in Kansas City

Kansas City skyline

When considering the areas of your home to upgrade or renovate — such as your kitchen or bathroom — windows can be pretty low on the list of to-dos. However, replacing your windows can increase your home’s value and energy efficiency while making it more attractive.

There are many reasons why you may want to find window repair in Kansas City, including:

You can see damage/aging

If your windows start to age, they’re less attractive and can become warped and stick when opening or closing. To enhance the overall look of your home, inside and out, replacing your windows is a great option. Additionally, replacing your windows can produce an 85 percent return on investment on the cost when it’s time to sell your home.

You have high energy bills

Windows are responsible for 25 to 30 percent of your home’s heat loss and gain. By replacing your windows with energy-efficient products, you can improve the efficiency of your home’s HVAC systems and save money on high energy expenses.

When choosing energy-efficient replacement windows in Kansas City, you have to consider four factors: frame, glass, design and installation. The differences between the three main types of window frames are:

Frame type Benefit Drawback
Wood
  • Less heat/cold transfer
  • Historic look
  • Hard to maintain and requires regular maintenance
Aluminum
  • Mostly maintenance-free and inexpensive
  • Suitable for wet climates
  • Poor insulation
Vinyl
  • Stabilizes UV lights
  • Good moisture resistance and insulation
  • Not as attractive

Once you decide on a type of frame, you can choose to get single or double-paned windows. The thicker the window, the more insulation you have between your home’s interior and the temperature and noise outside. While double-paned windows can be expensive, you may be eligible for a tax break or rebate from Kansas or Missouri by replacing your windows with more efficient options.

You want more protection

In 2017, there were 4,647 burglaries reported to the Kansas City Police Department. According to the FBI, 25 percent of burglars enter homes through the windows. If your home is old and has less secure locks or easier-to-break, single-pane windows, consider upgrading them for added protection. Some new windows can also protect you and your home’s belongings from harmful UV rays.

You’re renovating a historic home

Kansas City has a rich history, and many areas across the metro, including Midtown and the Volker neighborhood, have unique houses and features that renovators value.

The windows in these homes are often less-than-ideal in terms of efficiency and look. If you want to maintain the architectural details of the home, you can choose to restore the windows rather than replace them. In this case, you may need to work with a company that specializes in that type of service.

The cost of replacement windows in Kansas City

The overall cost of replacing windows in Kansas City depends on the size of the windows and how many are being replaced, but the materials also play a significant role. Another factor is whether you’re replacing the window or the frame and window.

If you’re replacing the frame, wood is the most expensive material and costs between $550 and $2,250 per window. The cost of replacing windows with vinyl frames ranges from $250 to $750 per window, and the price of fiberglass window replacement runs between $550 and $1,000.

Your cost also depends on the type of glass you choose to use. Thermally insulated, energy-efficient windows are more expensive than single-pane windows. The extra cost is made up for by savings in your utility bills, however.

Hiring a windows installer in Kansas City

In general, you do not need a permit for window replacement in Kansas City. However, you need to get a permit to alter an exterior wall, which is necessary for projects such as installing a larger window. An experienced contractor lets you know if you need a permit and keeps your home protected through the installation process.

Here’s what you should look for when hiring a windows installer in Kansas City:

  • What is their specialization? Many installers specialize in one type of window. Before you decide to hire a company, make sure you do research to find out if you want to use the windows it provides.
  • Is there an upfront cost? As a general rule of thumb, you should never pay more than 30 percent of the total cost upfront — this keeps your contractors liable for the work they do.
  • What warranties are included? The contractor should offer some type of labor warranty for at least two years. You should also check if your windows come with a product warranty.
  • What licenses do they hold? Before starting any project with a contractor, check what licenses and certifications they have. While they’re not required, having a license can be a good descriptor of the type of work they do. You can check Missouri licensing here and Kansas here.
  • How much is the bid? Get at least three detailed bids from different installers and contractors that outline the total cost, the materials used and specific start and finish dates.

Never go with a company just because it offers the lowest bid. Consider everything listed above when hiring window installers in Kansas City to ensure you are getting the best work and materials at a great price.
