Our business model has the added benefits of quick, easy pricing without having to sit through an often, high pressure sales pitch. Even if our approach is not the best model for you, it is an easy way to get a quote.
For patio doors just measure the opening in the wall - width and height.
Entry doors (without sidelites) and storm doors - measure the slab, the part that swings. Entry doors with sidelites, measure the opening in the wall.
Don't worry - we are not going to use your measurements for anything but the quote. If you decide to proceed with the products, we come out to take exact measurements.
The quote will show the cost for each product and we include the energy rating (NFRC numbers) and the warranty.
What may be additional is if your home was built prior to 1978 and the openings have lead paint. EPA requires that homes built before 1978 be tested for lead paint prior to window or door replacement. There is no charge for the test. We are certified by EPA to perform the tests and also do the installation if lead is found. If lead paint is found we must follow "Lead Safe Practices" during the installation. If lead paint is found, it add $50 to each opening that contains lead paint to cover the cost of the material and time needed to follow the "Lead Safe Practices".
The terms of the contract are a third deposit and balance due at completion.
For patio doors and entry doors the existing frames are removed and new trim installed as needed.
VinylVinyl offers superior energy efficiency, lifetime warranties and are a half the cost of fiberglass and a third the cost of wood. Not only does the vinyl window have the best energy efficiency ratings they also have the lowest air infiltration. This means less drafts. Grids are available inbetween the glass or affixed to the outside of the glass on the interior and exterior of the home.
FiberglassFiberglass windows from a distance mimics painted wood. Their finish is more matted without the sheen of a vinyl window. Fiberglass windows are also easier to paint if you decide you want to change the color later. Grids are only available inbetween the glass.
WoodWood windows offer interiors that can be stained or painted to match any decor. Wood also adds warmth and charm to any room. Grids are available inbetween the glass, removable roomside wood grids or affixed grids to the outside of the glass on the interior and exterior of home.
Legacy SteelLegacy Steel doors are the least expensive option and are available in a smooth, painted finish with 16 colors to choose from. These 20 gauge steel won’t crack or warp and are the strongest, most durable doors available on the market. Although generally low maintenance, if scratched through the galvanization, these doors can rust if not properly primed and painted. Dents and dings can be pulled and puttied with an auto-body repair kit. Steel entry doors offer the best solution for property owners concerned with building or home security.
FiberglassThe fiberglass doors offer a little better energy efficiency than the steel. In addition, fiberglass does not feel as cold or as hot to the touch as steel. Fiberglass entry doors do not shrink, warp, split, crack or delaminate. They’re ideal for harsh or humid climates. Fiberglass entry doors offer the lowest maintenance, resisting denting and scratching, and can be cleaned with mild soap and water. These doors can be re-finished, but must be done by a professional.
