Q. What are the advantages to custom made windows over pre-made windows?

Brian Kaley Resized

Brian Kaley, Senior Sales Associate: “Ordering custom windows allows our clients to possess the option to design their own windows exactly how they dreamt of them. Custom windows are made to fit a window opening precisely, meaning that the installation process is far more seamless. Although pre-made windows may cost less up front, they often require additional expenses such as the addition of siding for installation.

The advantages for custom made windows easily outweighs those of pre-made windows.”
