Window Frequently Asked Questions

Window Faqs

Are my windows standard size?

Replacement windows are always custom built and custom sized. Measuring the windows correctly is extremely important. A great window with bad installation is a bad job and defeats the purpose of the project. Buildpro takes the time to verify each window individually for proper measurements and installation.

Do you guarantee your work?

Buildpro also guarantees its labor to the original homeowner for as long as they own that home. That’s what we do and that’s what you deserve. Other companies offer only 3-5 years.

Do your installation procedures involve removing or disturbing the interior trim inside my home?

No. In fact, our installation occurs from the outside so our procedures are non-invasive and we do not remove or disturb the interior trim. This also eliminates the need for repainting and staining that occurs with some other company’s methods.

How can the customer help?

Hey thanks for asking. In normal situations we got it, but sometimes we do need help. Pets, large furniture and custom window treatments may be addressed. We will inform you if anything arises.

How long does the installation take?

The majority of homes take only one to two days to complete the project. However, each window is custom manufactured specifically for your home. Production and delivery take three to four weeks at the most.

How much household energy do leaky, energy inefficient windows use?

About 25% – according to the U.S. Department of Energy

I’m confused – what’s the difference between “R-value,” “U-factor” and “SHGC?”

Heat flow is measured with R-value. The greater the R-value, the more efficient the window is. U-factor, by contrast, determines heat transfer from inside to outside a home. Lastly, SHGC (Solar Heat Gain Coefficient) indicates the amount of solar heat your home is absorbing. A lower SHGC translates into less heat absorption.

I’ve heard that window replacement isn’t rocket science. Why shouldn’t I try to do it myself?

Your local home improvement store does not typically stock replacement windows off-the-rack. They might have new construction windows, but these are meant for additions and new structures. The main problem with self-installation is exterior cladding (frame inside a shell) because special skills and tools are required to properly seal and match the color of the windows.
