How To Find A Window Installer

There are a number of reasons you might be considering replacement windows for your home.


Perhaps they look worn out or have become difficult to operate. Maybe they are not energy efficient or even sound-proof.


Regardless of the reason, all replacement window projects require professional support. In fact, who you choose to install your new windows is key to ensuring your desired outcome – a beautiful look for your home, inside and out.


If installed improperly, even high quality windows will not look as good as they should. They may even end up using more energy, rather than less.


So, if you are preparing for a home improvement project, start by searching for the best window installation company in the area.


Keep reading to learn which traits the best window installers should have.


What To Look For

Clear Expectations

A professional installer should walk you through every aspect of the installation process beforehand, so nothing ends up being a surprise. You want the home improvement process to go smoothly, from start to finish – no hidden costs, no hassles, no problems.

For the smoothest process, it is best if each new window is installed immediately after the old one is removed. Avoid using a contractor who removes all the old windows first, then installs the new windows. Otherwise, you risk spending time with a boarded-up hole, awaiting the right windows.

At Big L, our process begins with a free in-home consultation, during which we measure the exact parameters of your home and develop an accurate quote. Then, we schedule a time for installation that is convenient for you. Customers are never in the dark.

Our goal is to ensure that you feel comfortable and confident that your new windows will not only look amazing, but that your home will be treated with the utmost respect.

Guaranteed Satisfaction

Many national window brands recommend using installers who have been specifically trained and certified to work with their products. So, using the same contractor for purchase and installation can avoid finger-pointing if problems occur later.

If you do have a local dealer install the replacement windows you buy from them, find out how complaints are responded to. The dealer should always be willing to help resolve problems until you are totally satis­fied.

At Big L, we proudly offer our unique Total Trust Guarantee. It’s an exclusive suite of warranties that cover both the products we sell, as well as the installation services we provide.

By selling only high quality windows, and using our installation professionals who have over 200 years of combined experience serving Buffalo, NY, the Big L Total Trust Guarantee is our promise that you’ll be completely satisfied when your job is complete (and for many years to come).

Social Proof

When it comes to hiring a professional for your home improvement project, you never want to be a company’s test dummy. Look for window installers who have positive customer reviews, ideally dating back a few years.

While not all customer reviews are one-hundred percent accurate, they do help offer a general gist of window installers’ credibility. Don’t let one or two customers’ bad experiences discourage you from working with a dealer that makes you feel comfortable. However, be weary of any window installer who has only negative feedback online.

At Big L, we take great pride in each and every review left by our customers. The videos testimonials page on our website puts these reviews on full display. Plus, we offer a referral program that allows any one of our satisfied customers throughout Buffalo, NY to benefit from their positive feedback.


Put simply: If your home improvement project involves replacement windows, make sure you are working with a high quality window installer.

If installed improperly, even the best windows on the market can end up looking or performing poorly.

So, when preparing for your next window replacement, look for window installers who:

  • Set clear expectations of what the process will entail
  • Guarantee your satisfaction with both the products and the installation
  • Have positive feedback from previous customers easily-accessible online
