Replacement Windows and Doors
Specializing in all types of remodeling and replacement solutions in the greater Chicago area.
When to Replace Windows & Doors
You’ll know when it’s time to replace your old windows and doors when your home’s interior can’t maintain a comfortable temperature. Old windows can make your home too hot in summer and too cold in winter. This is likely due to windows that no longer close tightly or contain poorly conducting glass. Maybe you have a water problem resulting in signs of mold or mildew? What ever the problems, the reality is that everything eventually wears out, including windows.
Where to Begin
Start with an in-home consultation with a professional who can help you assess your home’s replacement needs based on a number of factors.
- The condition of your existing windows
- The style of your windows
- Your remodeling plans
- Your budget
Your options are plentiful, the challenge is to know exactly what those are. Our replacement professionals talk with homeowners like you everyday and can show you the possibilities, often providing you with a quote that day or within a few days of coming to your home. No pressure, we know it’s a process.

What Does It Cost to Replace Windows & Doors?
In order to plan your budget, you need to understand the costs involved in replacing your windows and doors. To budget, you need to know the cost of the ‘installed window or door’. To best understand this you need to understand the key components.
- Window selection – Wood, Wood Clad, Vinyl, fiberglass or aluminum.
- Replacement type – Partial or full.
- Interior and exterior trim – use existing, add new, primed, painted or stained.
- Condition of the existing opening.
- Location of the window – upstairs, downstairs, accessible or inaccessible.
- Size of the window – small, regular or oversized.
- Access to your home – how close can the windows be unloaded.
Each of these contributes to the cost or your replacement, which is why it’s key to get a quote from a reputable replacement dealer otherwise you risk getting an inferior installed product or hidden costs you didn’t know about upfront.

The Woodland Difference
Choosing the right company for your replacement project is a difficult decision given all of the companies who claim to be the best replacement window and door suppliers and installers.
The difference between Woodland and other companies is our product selection, sales consultant expertise, easy to understand pricing and installer know-how.

Sales Consultant Expertise
Our sales team are solutions experts focused on recommending the best option for your project, unlike other companies pedaling the deal of the day.
Easy to Understand Pricing
We don’t quote projects to make the sale. Our quotes include brand products and factor the real installation costs associated with your specific project so it is done right and there are no hidden costs.
We do the job right the first time with no short cuts, unlike less experienced or sub-contracted installers who often are unaware of window installation best practices and manufacturer guides.
