Replacement Windows

There are two very important things to consider when replacing your windows: choosing the right window, and choosing the right company to install and stand behind them.

You have heard the stories of how big name companies promise to deliver too good to be true results when selling windows. You know the promises of insane heat savings, unbelievable price discounts after they tell you the starting price of $1500.00 and the story that no other window in the world is like theirs! You know the stories of how homeowner’s had to sit through a 3 to 4 hour sales presentation about windows. Then they had to either sign the deal to get rid of them or kick the salesman, who wouldn’t take no for an answer, out. You will not be treated this way by the professional home contractors at Paradis Remodeling and Building LLC.

(Vinyl, Fiberglass or Wood) replacement windows are designed to be installed into your existing window frames. This is the most cost effective window purchase. The new window is provided with a frame and sash to be installed into your existing window frame. This is a very straight forward process. The old window sashes are removed, weights or balances are removed, and the stops are carefully taken off and set aside for reuse. Often the existing stops can be reused and only need touch up paint. The drawback to replacement windows installed into your existing frames is the loss of 3-4 inches of daylight on all four sides. If you choose this route ask us to show you the new downsized daylight opening. Some recommended manufacturers’ are Harvey Building Products, Marvin Integrity, Sunrise Windows.
