Depending on the contractor you choose, you may also be able to do work on transom, storm, sliding and skylight windows. They offer some widow types with extra insulation and extra panes to improve insulation and reduce heat loss in the winter and cooling loss in the summer. The contractors who work with Modernize also work with several types of window frame materials, including wood, aluminum, vinyl, and fiberglass. You can get free estimates for replacements and installations or updates on already existing windows, as well as new construction planning and larger renovations.
Modernize doesn’t have it’s own pricing, as it is a contractor matching service. However, getting a price quote is easy. You just tell Modernize a bit about yourself, like your location and how many windows you want replaced or fixed, whether or not you own your home, and your contact information. You will probably pay an installation fee from your contractor, as well as for the materials and time, but the actual price will vary depending on the scale of your project and the quality you’re looking for. Modernize has online checklists and price calculators, so you’ll know upfront what standard rates are for the providers you’re looking at.

Customer Service and Response Times
Modernize is always available online and ready to partner you with the right contractor for your new windows or window repair services. Customer service reps are available toll-free via phone, at (888) 219-1908. Once you’ve picked a contractor from the options that Modernize has shared with you, you’ll find more information about that company’s specific hours and response times. Many operate with 24 hour customer care, and same day service.
Modernize does not offer its own warranty, as it’s not the company doing the work on your home. Many of its partner window replacement and installation companies offer warranties up to lifetime, covering replacement and refunds for any unsatisfactory work. Some will cover the windows for a set number of years, and take responsibility for any work that doesn’t live up to expectations. Once you’ve selected a contractor through Modernize, you can ask that company what the window installation or replacement warranty covers, and for how long.
Modernize puts a high focus on matching users with energy efficient contractors and materials, with Energy Star ratings. Energy Star windows are designed to let in infrared light that can cause heat generation, helping your home retain heat (and reducing your heating costs), as well as to keep heat out in warmer climates. The rating attests to the insulation value, and many such windows have multi-pane windows, high quality frames, low-e glass coating, argon or krypton gas between glass panes, and window pane spacers. The installers that Modernize partners with will be able to tell you exactly which windows they offer and how energy efficient they are.
