Industry Info

Pre-screen aggressively by telephone. You’ll want to “pre-screen” window contractors by phone before you hire them. Though they’ll be asking you questions about your project—location, number and type of windows, timeline—think of this phone call as your fact-finding mission. You want to eliminate candidates who don’t meet your expectations. So answer their questions, but make sure they answer yours as well.

There are many questions you can ask, and many will be dictated by your own specific circumstances. But make sure to ask these five:

• How long have you been in the construction business?
• What is your specific experience with window installations?
• Is there a specific window you use or recommend? Why?
• Do you have your own installation crew or do you subcontract the work?
• What are your payment terms?
• Are you on site during the installation process?

It’s also a good idea to ask how the company handles problems once the project is complete. They should also be able to provide a list of referrals, preferably in your area. And find out about warranties beyond what the manufacturer offers.

If possible, work with installers who have exclusive relationships with established, name-brand window manufacturers. You won’t want to work with a company that buys from second-hand shops or, even worse, out of someone’s trunk. You can save money with cut-rate products, but only in the short run. When they break down, you’ll be left with more cost and inconvenience. Suppliers should be reputable and have a fixed address.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What type of window should I buy?

A: Start with your budget. Your basic options, from most to least expensive, are wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Most people feels that wood windows are the most authentic. Fiberglass windows are actually very paintable, helping if you want to change the color of the frames. Vinyl windows are extremely energy- and cost-efficient.

Q: What about longevity?

A: These days, there’re all quite durable—although fiberglass windows were only introduced ten or so years ago, so it’s hard to know just yet. Vinyl windows have gotten better since they’ve started using sophisticated polymers that don’t break down or warp in sunlight and ultraviolet rays. Vinyl is extremely long-lasting.

Q: Does caulking guarantee no leaks?

A: No. When caulking is maintained over the years, it does a great job. But sometimes water can still find its way in.

Q: Can I replace a window myself?

A: With some skill and resourcefulness, yes. But if you’re not confident in your skills, hire someone. It will give you peace of mind at relatively low cost.

Q: What kind of glass do I use to qualify for a tax rebate?

A: All glass installers essentially use the same glass, called Low-E (Low Emissivity). Due to its energy efficiency, it qualifies for the $5000 tax credit through the American Recovery Act. There are other glass products and technologies that offer even greater energy efficiency and savings.

Q: Do you do free estimates?

A: Absolutely.

Eric Warm: A Heightened Career

By James Florence, Diamond Certified Resource Reporter

PLEASANTON — After several years in the carpet and upholstery cleaning industry, Eric Warm had reached a professional plateau. Fortunately, thanks to an uncommon drive to succeed (along with a helpful referral), he was able to advance his career to new heights. “I used to be an assistant plant manager at COIT, which was about as far as I could go up the ladder,” he recalls. “I got involved in the window industry when the plant manager at COIT referred me to a management job with a vinyl window manufacturer. From there, I got into window sales and consulting, and in 1989, I opened my own business.”

Today, as president of Quality Windows & Doors, Inc., Eric says his favorite part of his job is helping customers find the right products. “A big part of our job is learning our customers’ particular needs and matching them with products that meet those needs. After going through the process from selection to installation, it’s very satisfying to see the customer happy with the final result.”

Originally from Southern California, Eric moved to the Bay Area when he was 13 years old and today resides in Pleasanton with his wife, Marianne. Outside of work, he stays physically active by engaging in his favorite pastime: tennis. “I’ve been playing tennis since I was a kid,” he says. “I played in college, and I still play several times a week with friends and family.” Speaking of family, Eric also enjoys spending time with his and Marianne’s children, Nicole and Billy, and their grandson, Isaac.

In regard to his professional career, Eric espouses the importance of providing helpful expertise. “Since we have a showroom, we get a lot of customers who come in with questions,” he explains. “This makes it extra important for us to be on our game in terms of product knowledge, since they’re depending on us to help them make informed decisions. That’s why we strive to provide good communication and customer service in addition to quality products and workmanship.”

When asked what his future retirement might look like, Eric says he’ll continue to pursue the same activities he currently enjoys. “I’ll continue to play tennis, spend time with my kids and just enjoy life. Maybe I’ll compete on the senior men’s tennis tour!”

Ask Me Anything!

Q: Who’s your favorite tennis player?
A: Roger Federer.

Q: What was your favorite Halloween costume as a child?
A: Batman.

Q: Pancakes or waffles?
A: Waffles.

Q: Music or talk radio?
A: Music.

  • Considering Home Value When Choosing Window Frames

    PLEASANTON — When it comes to choosing window frames, most people want to find the most cost-effective options available. However, another important factor to consider is how your choice may affect your home’s resale value. Depending on the home, even a quality window frame product like vinyl can potentially increase or diminish resale value, so be sure to make an informed choice.

    Given their affordability and high performance, vinyl window frames are ideal for rental properties or homes valued at less than $800,000. However, while vinyl frames will perform equally well in a high-end residence, they have the potential to negatively affect its resale value. For example, if you install vinyl frames in your high-end home and your neighbors install fiberglass or wood frames, it can simultaneously cause the value of their homes to increase and yours to decrease. So, if you live in a high-end residence, you may want to consider a frame style like fiberglass or wood, as these are likely to bring more long-term value.

Expert video tip
  • Video: Window Frames and Home Resale Value

    Complete Video Transcription:

    PLEASANTON — Host, Sarah Rutan: When choosing new window and door frames, an important yet often neglected consideration is how your choice can affect your home’s resale value. Today we’re in Pleasanton with Diamond Certified Expert Contributor Eric Warm of Quality Windows & Doors to learn more.

    Diamond Certified Expert Contributor, Eric Warm: There’s more to purchasing a window and door than just price and color. If you have a value of a home that is quite expensive, then you probably should look into a fiberglass or a wood window. If you live in a track home, then vinyl windows are a preference. If you live in a custom home, and you put vinyl windows in here, and your neighbor puts a fiberglass or wood window in there, the value of their home increases and yours decreases. So, what does that mean? It’s the thickness of the frame.

    My suggestion is if you have an aluminum patio door that you’re replacing, and your value of your home is in the $800,000.00 or less range, you can typically put a vinyl patio door and be fine. Or if you have a rental, that you just want to replace the windows, because they still do a tremendous difference for energy efficiency, but once you get over that value of the home and you put vinyl windows in, it becomes a deterrent for the resale of your home.
