Frequently Asked Questions

Q:

What is this going to cost?

A:

Traditionally no two houses have the same windows. replacing windows can run in the thousands of dollars for a whole house full or as little a few hundred dollars for a small single replacement. Certain windows may cost far more than others depending on the features of the Window and the size. Installation can also impact the price when there are obstructions or simply difficult areas to work within. You can rest assured that the price we give you is the final price of the windows. on occasion you may have a slightly higher cost if we find decay or other issues that are not visible without first removing the old windows. This is extremely rare and in almost every case the cost we quote you is the final cost.

Q:

What is an impact resistant glass window?

A:

These are windows with impact glass consisting of a strong laminated interlayer bonded between two panes of annealed, heat-strengthened, or tempered glass. When struck by a forceful object such as a tree branch or the stray golf ball, the glass could crack but would remain in the frame. When combined with an exceptionally strong window frame, in the rare event an object impacts the glass and causes the pane to shatter, it remains held within the frame. This type of window provides greater security and protection by greatly reducing the risk of flying glass or debris from entering the home during high windstorms.

Q:

What happens to my old windows and screens?

A:

We generally remove all debris from your property and dispose of it. If you would like to keep your old windows or screens, please notify the installer as soon as he arrives for your installation.

Q:

Is there going to be a big mess?

A:

Not with Newman's, you can expect us to take a great deal of time setting up walkway covers and dust barriers when we are in your home. When we are done for the day all of our equipment will be removed and your house restored to normal. At Newman's this has been a top priority from the start.

Our employees realize that this type of respect is what has helped make Newman's so different than most other window companies in Florida.

Q:

Who should have impact resistant glass in their home?

A:

Impact resistant glass is ideal for homeowners living in coastal areas prone to strong windstorms and hurricanes, or for those who live on a golf course or other area where vigorous sports activities take place. Some homeowners choose impact resistant glass for the sound reduction and security benefits it provides.

Q:

Will impact-resistant glass prevent intruders from breaking into my home?

A:

No glass can completely prevent intruders from entering your home. Any glass, when struck repeatedly with forceful blows, will eventually shatter. However, the majority of impact-resistant glass stays in the frame when broken, causing a forced entry to be much more time consuming, cumbersome and difficult.

Q:

How soon can you get it done?

A:

In general new windows and doors on most houses in florida is a 6 - 8 week process. It begins with a phone call then we meet to decide what type of window and doors are best for your needs. This usually happens in a week or less. The next step is we come to your home and measure the windows you need replaced. After measuring is done the proper windows and doors are ordered from the manufacturer to exact size. The manufacturer can take from two weeks up to four weeks with most orders arriving in three weeks. In some cases some manufacturers can take longer, if this is going to impact your order we let you know in advance. After we receive your new windows and doors, simple installations can take up to three days with most done in two.

Q:

Do you hire subcontractors?

A:

We never use Subcontractors for any window or door installation. In the rare event we may hire a subcontractor it will involve some other aspect other than the window or door installation. For example: you may have peeling or decayed stucco around the window that needs repair. in this case we would hire out a full time stucco contractor to make the repair a professional one.

If we do need a sub contractor, you can rest assured they will be licensed and insured to work in Florida.

Q:

Will the replacement windows be installed from the inside or outside?

A:

The majority of our windows are installed from the inside. In certain situations, we may be required to install from the outside.
