The Good

  • Factory-Direct Service
  • Catalog and Options
  • Features and Technology
  • Window Warranty

Factory-Direct Service

One of the most unique aspects of the Install America service is the fact that there is no middle man from window make until project completion. Most window replacement services will purchase windows from a manufacturer then the in-house team or a third party contractor will carry out the installation. This can lead to complications especially when a warranty is in effect because there is a manufacturer, installation provider, and client that all have to get on the same page. Additionally, installation can get hairy since window installation companies are working with a number of manufacturers. This means that technicians have to knows the ins and outs of countless window makes increasing the risk for poor workmanship.

With Install America, none of this is a projected issue. The in-house installation team install the windows that the company manufactures itself, providing a hassle-free experience. Homeowners will not have to go back and forth between a sales company or installer since Install America handles everything from the manufacturing to the sale to the installation.

Catalog Options

Since every home has different needs, functionality, and measurements, finding the ideal customized window solution is imperative in each window replacement project. Install America is equipped to install the following window types:

  • Double Hung Windows
  • Bay and Bow Windows
  • Picture and Architectural Windows
  • Casement, Awning, and Hopper Windows

When manufacturing these windows, Install America will meet design preferences of the client, light specifications and needs, and even privacy standards. Not all window replacement services can include these features in the window catalog and truly offer tailored solutions, but Install America does.

Features and Technology

Since Install America manufacturers the product they install, the company has complete control over the technology and associated features built into the product. As a result, Install America ensures that it creates a high quality product that homeowners are pleased with. Key features and technological advancements of Install America windows include the following:

  • Fusion Welded Frame and Sash
  • Customized Cove Mold Look
  • Positive Sloped Sill
  • Deeply Pocketed Head
  • Heavy Walled Construction
  • Constant Force Balance System
  • New Soft Curved Sash Design
  • Attractive Integral Lift Rail
  • Dual Tilt-In Sashes
  • 3/4 Inch Insulating Glass System
  • Warm Edge Technology
  • Interlocking Meeting Rail
  • Die Cast Cam Lock and Keeper
  • Optional Coating

Install America is one of the only window replacement companies that can say with complete assurance the quality of its window product and the infused technology each window employs. Install America has 27 different patents on its windows and continues to push the envelope on what windows can provide homeowners. 

Window Warranty

Install America is so confident in its product and installation work that it offers a Lifetime Warranty on its windows. Most window replacement companies offer a "limited lifetime warranty" meaning if the original homeowner that had the windows installed were to move, the warranty would become void. 

With Install America on the other hand, all windows are installed by the company are covered by the warranty the entire time they remain in the residence. The lifetime warranty then also covers the windows if the original homeowner were to sell to a new buyer for the duration of the time that second homeowner lives in the residence. That makes the Install America warranty one of the best and "longest lasting" coverage plans in the industry. 


The Bad

  • Service Area
  • Alternative Financing

Service Area

The Install America operation, while headquartered in Pennsylvania, has expanded since its founding in 1955 but that growth has been relatively stagnant for quite some time. For homeowners looking to have new windows installed, the only states the company operates in include the following:

  • Pennsylvania
  • New Jersey
  • Tennessee
  • North Carolina

Outside of these states, Install America is unable to take on the workmanship aspect of the window replacement service. While this geographic service area is larger than a traditional local provider, it does not compete with national brands that handle projects from coast to coast. 

Alternative Financing

For many homeowners, the cost of a home renovation project is the main hurdle. Paying for supplies, labor, and unplanned repairs are enough to keep many homeowners from taking the plunge on projects that need to be done around the house. This is definitely the case with window replacements, and since the cost for windows is so high, many homeowners shy away from making it a priority.

To combat this issue, many window and home upgrade providers offer some sort of alternative financing. Whether the provider themselves offers the flexible terms or through a financing partner, most window replacement services offer some sort of alternative payment structure. These financing options are then almost always made public so prospective clients can determine if it is financially feasible to have new windows installed. That being said, there is no public mention of alternative financing through Install America. There are promotions the company will offer at different times to help bring down the overall cost, but straightforward financing options are not disclosed. It is unclear whether or not financing is available to Install America clients despite most of the competition making this information clear and widely known. 


The Bottom Line

Install America provides a number of home installation and remodel services, but its window replacement and manufacturing efforts stand out within the industry. Install America provides a factory-direct service, which eliminates the middle man and streamlines the entire window make and installation process. The catalog of window solutions available through Install America address nearly every window need a homeowner could encounter. This allows Install America to tailor its solutions and provide a customized service. All Install America windows are infused with some of the best and most efficient window and energy technology in the industry. Finally, all Install America windows are backed by its lifetime warranty boasting some of the best and most agreeable terms for homeowners in the market. 

The window replacement service offered through Install America is worth considering, but there are limitations to the company's service that prospective clients should be aware of as well. The service area is limited to certain states on the east coast. Outside of this geographic service area, homeowners will have to look elsewhere for home upgrade solutions. Additionally, there is no public information regarding financing or alternative billing structures for those looking for a budget friendly payment plan. 

Considering all the services and window features included in the Install America catalog, those within the service area of the company should consider using Install America for replacement window services.
