Choosing a replacement window company in Billings

billings skyline

When you’re looking for a window company in Billings to replace the windows in your home, you want to start by finding those that are registered with the state of Montana. Then, find out what each company specializes in and what its reputation is in the community by asking family and friends, reading reviews and checking references. Make sure a company has the type of windows you’re looking for, especially if you want a specific material or a custom shape.

Windows come in many styles and sizes. Here are the most popular styles of windows in Billings:

  • Double-hung windows are the most popular residential windows and are often found all over the house, including in hallways, bedrooms and kitchens. They have top and bottom panels that move up and down vertically. Single-hung windows also have two panels, but only the bottom panel slides up and down.
  • Hopper windows open into the house and are usually found in basements and crawl spaces to provide ventilation.
  • Specialty windows are common in living rooms and custom homes. They’re made in custom sizes to fit the design of a home. Shape windows are custom-made as well and come in uncommon shapes like triangles.
  • Picture windows don’t open but allow in lots of natural light, add curb appeal and provide unobstructed views. They’re commonly found in the living room and kitchen.
  • Bay windows are multiple windows extending out at an angle. Bow windows are similar and extend out at a curve. Bow and bay windows are typically found at the front of a home because they add to curb appeal and provide panoramic views.
  • Horizontal sliding windows have a panel that slides horizontally on a track and are found in bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchens.
  • Casement windows have a hinged panel at the side so they can open away from the home and provide ventilation. They’re found in bedrooms and living rooms as well as kitchens.

It’s common for Billings window companies to offer energy-efficient windows with two to three panes of glass and low-emissivity (low-E) coating to keep your home warm during cold Montana winters and cool during the summer.

Windows are made from vinyl, fiberglass, aluminum and wood. For Billings homeowners who prefer low-maintenance products, vinyl windows are durable and look like wood windows without all the upkeep.

Before choosing a window installation company, get multiple written estimates and ask if installation is included in the price. Request information about the warranty on new windows, also. Most companies provide free in-home consultations to answer your questions and provide a quote.

How much does window replacement cost in Billings?

To replace all the windows in a home in Billings, it costs between $4,400 to $5,800, on average, including the window installation cost. Each window costs anywhere between $150 to more than $4,000. Replacing bay windows costs more than replacing double- and single-hung windows because of the design. The window frame material also affects the price of window replacement, with wood windows being on the high end and vinyl and aluminum windows being more affordable.

In Billings, the average cost to repair a window is $350 to $1,000. Energy-efficiency windows with features like triple-pane and low-E glass that reduce heat transfer and block ultraviolet rays add to the price, whether you’re repairing or replacing your windows. However, energy-efficient windows often save you money on electricity bills over the long term.

Most of the Billings companies on this list offer financing plans and seasonal promotions, and a few offer discounts for various groups, including veterans and first responders.
