We often get calls at our office asking if we do window installation in San Diego. The answer, of course, is “yes!” At BM Windows, we have a great team of window installers, but we do so much more at our San Diego replacement window company. Window installation is only one part of what we do—albeit a very important part!
We are a full-service replacement window company. Our team will help you with the entire process of outfitting your home with new windows. Typically, when a company calls themselves a “full-service company,” it can mean they charge a premium for whatever they are selling. This isn’t necessarily the case when it comes to new windows. We work directly with replacement window manufacturers who give us special pricing. This allows us to provide our customers with quality windows at great prices.
Here’s how the process works at BM Windows: You contact our office and we’ll schedule a time for you to meet with someone from our sales team. We can come to your home or you can come to our San Diego office. Typically, we go to the homes of our customers so we can take measurements and provide an all-inclusive quote right there on the spot. Our team will take careful measurements, so your new windows fit perfectly once they are installed.
We offer several different lines of windows to choose from, including budget-friendly and luxury options. Once you select the windows you want for your home, we place the order with the manufacturer. When they come in, we’ll schedule your window installation date.
Expert Window Installation is Key!
Now we come to the most important part of the process—the installation.
At BM Windows, our window installers are some of the best in the business! They have received factory training from the window manufacturing companies and additional training from our own company’s installation leads. They use the best materials and methods to ensure that the job is done properly. They also work efficiently to finish the job in a timely manner.
Can a general contractor do window installation? Sure. What about a handyman? Probably. But these types of people are usually not trained specifically in window installation. They may have general knowledge of how to install windows, but they aren’t usually experts at it like we are. We’ve installed thousands of replacement windows in homes throughout San Diego.
Our team knows how to install windows without doing damage to the surrounding walls, and more importantly, how to get the best performance out of your new windows. One of the main reasons why people purchase replacement windows is to improve their home’s energy efficiency, and proper window installation is key to making your home as energy efficient as possible! We say it often, but it bears repeating: You could buy the most expensive energy-efficient windows on the market, but if they are improperly installed, you won’t see the energy savings you were probably hoping for.
The Best Replacement Windows Come from Authorized Dealers
If you’ve started your search for replacement windows in San Diego, you know that there are a lot of options out there! There are many different window manufacturers, and each manufacturer may have several different “lines” of windows. Some of the replacement windows on the market can be purchased by anyone from a home improvement store or ordered online, but others can only be purchased from authorized dealers. When you hire a general contractor or handyman for window installation, they are likely buying windows from a home improvement store—the same windows you could buy if you went to the store yourself.
In almost all cases, the windows sold exclusively by replacement window dealers are better quality than the windows you or your contractor can buy off the shelf. This is because the manufacturers that truly care about quality carefully vet the people and companies that they allow to install their products. They often require their authorized dealers to go through a process to prove they are qualified to install their product properly. The manufacturers of lesser-quality windows typically just want to sell as many windows as possible and allow anyone to install their products—regardless of their experience or skill.
Again, you might be thinking: “But higher-quality windows are going to cost me a lot more than the windows I could buy myself and hire someone else to install.” Not necessarily. At BM Windows, we can often provide our customers with higher-quality windows for less than what you would pay for lesser-quality windows!
Keep Your Window Warranty Intact with Professional Window Installation
Another advantage to hiring a dedicated window company for window installation is that they are more likely to keep your manufacturer’s warranty intact. If you ever have an issue with your replacement windows and go to the manufacturer with a warranty issue, the manufacturer will not hesitate to void your warranty if your windows were improperly installed. This is written into every window warranty out there.
You can avoid this unfortunate (and expensive) issue by using professional window installers. At BM Windows, we offer a Lifetime Installation Warranty, which is on top of any manufacturers’ warranties. This means you are fully covered, whether the issue with your window is related to the window itself or the installation.
In addition, because our replacement window company has such tight relationships with the window manufacturers we work with, we can contact the manufacturer on your behalf if the window proves to be faulty. We will make sure you get taken care of in a timely manner and that your issue is resolved to your satisfaction.
