Our Process…. Your Satisfaction!
During your initial appointment, one of our professionals will inspect your existing windows, ask questions about your needs and budget, and take measurements of your work area. They will then provide a personalized estimate for the project and review financing options. When you’re ready to move forward, we will order your new windows, take payment and schedule a time for the installation. After your old window replacement is completed, the installer will perform a final inspection, review product and service warranties with you, and remove your old windows and any debris from the project.
We back our replacement windows and patio doors with a lifetime craftsmanship warranty. We also back our window installations services and patio installation services with a three-year labor warranty. On top of all that, we offer a free lifetime accidental glass breakage warranty on select replacement window products.

In most cases, replacement windows will be installed from the outside allowing the existing trim and casing to stay untouched. However, in some cases, trim will need to be removed and in all probability, removing the trim around your windows will damage it. Builder Stock Windows will install new matching style trim if necessary for a reasonable additional cost. It will be the homeowners responsibility to paint, stain, or varnish the trim.
Builder Stock Windows asks that the homeowner contacts their alarm company and have them come out to temporarily remove the sensors from the windows prior to the window installation date and then come back to reinstall after installation. In most cases our technicians can remove security sensors. However, if the window sensors are not reusable, our installers will remove but you will have to work with your security system installer to reinstall new sensors. Our sales representative will address this when you receive a quote.
Builder Stock Windows asks that the homeowner removes all blinds and window coverings prior to the installation date. If the homeowner is not capable, our installation team can help remove window treatments, however reinstallation is only provided by Builder Stock Windows if the window treatments fit the replacement windows in the same manner as the original windows. In some cases blinds and or other inside mounted window treatments may not fit the specific dimensions of the replacement window and in those cases the homeowner will have to work with their window treatment company for window treatment reinstallation.
On the inside of the house, if you have fragile personal items near the windows being replaced, we ask that you to remove them from the work areas prior to your scheduled installation date. If you are capable of clearing furniture from nearby the window great, otherwise our installation team will help move your furniture. On the outside of the house any bushes or trees that are in direct obstruction of replacing a window must be trimmed or removed by the homeowner prior to the installation date.
