Window Installations

If your home windows have never been replaced or installed before, you maybe not aware of the technicalities involved in the process. Trying to do it yourself you may stumble upon videos that may not properly explain where you need to measure, what you need to buy, and how to properly and professionally install it. There are several types of setups of window installation. They include the following:

New Construction Windows

The name “new construction windows” is a bit of a misnomer because it sounds as if you will only need them if you are building a new house or addition to your house. Actually, whether you use new construction windows or not depends on whether or not you need to replace rotten or worn casings. It is important to check the casings and windows before you get your home windows installed for this reason. You can mistakenly get different sizes or shapes that differ from what you previously had if you install new construction windows improperly.

New construction windows include the frame and a nailing fin which sticks it from the outside of the home. If you need this type of window installation, you will have to remove the exterior around the window. This can be used for new houses, but if it is used for replacement it takes considerable skill to install them correctly. Once they are installed, the window edges on the outer side have to be put back in the same initial way, with siding covered, stucco blended in, or bricks replaced. A home window installation company like us will both advise you and install them properly for you to save you a ton of headaches.

Window Inserts

Many home window installations are actually inserts. They are made to fit into an existing frame. If your window frame is a standard size, you can get a window insert to fit it without having to special-order it. However many windows, especially older ones, do not correspond to the standard measurements available and ready-made in stores. 


You will need the help of experts in installing them to make them fit.
If you are going to use inserts for installing home windows, the installation must be done carefully. The opening must be measured precisely and the window must be prepared with attention to detail. The window inserts that are bought must precisely match the ones that are required for the window casing.

Retrofit Windows

For the purposes of energy conservation, putting a new insert in an old casing is considered a repair and not an improvement. This is because the sash and framing of the window must be updated to increase the energy efficiency of a window in most cases. Adding triple panes will increase the energy efficiency
even more. Energy efficiency equals money savings for you!

Retrofit windows are designed to fit within the exact space of the previous window and casing. Yet, they are new windows with all the energy-efficient features now available for home window installation. Retrofit windows can be placed very quickly by our experienced window installers. Hiring us will definitely save you time, and if it keeps you from making costly mistakes that can be very costly.


JG contracting met and exceeded my expectations with the work that was done and their customer service. The fact that they kept me in the loop on everything that was being coordinated and scheduled meant a lot to us. Its refreshing to do buisness with contractors like JG that will help restore and perfect your home without anything to worry about. They finished in the same manor they started with professionalism and customer care. Thank you JG!

We were selling our house and needed to get a new roof on fast and they were able to respond quickly to my needs and they contacted my insurance company to get the work approved by them so that I only had to pay my deductible. They were able to complete the job prior to closing to meet my needs and they provided a warranty for the new owner. Fast and friendly service and listened to my needs and worked to exceed my expectations. The yard was clear of any debris once they completed the work.

The best roofing company in the country !

It was great working with JG Contracting Randie Woods, the Project Manager, was always helpful with any concerns I had and kept me up to date on when the crews would be here. The crews were friendly and did a wonderful job on our roof and gutters/downspouts. Quinn did outstanding work on the leaf guards and Aaron did an awesome job on the repair of the upstairs ceilings, and always arrived at the appointed time. They stand by their work!

Here are the best reasons for hiring professionals instead of DIY:

1. An expert will have the tools required for the job. Some window designs need special tools and buying them may be a bigger investment than hiring a window installer instead.


2. You will need help if you decide to turn this into a do-it-yourself project. Depending on the type and size of the window you are installing, you may need extra hands to help you carry and install them properly


Think about the extra fees that you may have to pay people to help you. Compare these fees with the fixed price that a window installer may charge you, and you may actually realize some savings if you just hire a company to do the installation for you.


3. A reputable window installation service guarantees their products and services. If you have never installed a window before, you may commit mistakes that can be costly. On the other hand, if you go with our professional service, you can always call us again if something goes wrong with the installation. 


The best window installations come with a many solid references as we have all over the Kansas City area. Check out our testimonials to see how satisfied our customers are with our earned work.


4. If you work with a window installer who has been in the business for a long time, you will benefit from the company’s years of experience


They can anticipate problems and provide solutions in case something goes wrong during installation. You should make sure that your installer will guarantee the work for at least one year.


5. Hiring a professional window installer saves you time. One reason people may choose to install windows themselves is to save money. 

However, if you have never done this job before, you may actually spend more time and money trying to get the task done correctly. If you make a mistake, you may end up paying more than your budget.


JG Contracting’s window installers have sufficient technical know how on all types of windows and the processes of installing them. 


We will advise you to go for energy-efficient windows which will eventually be saving you from huge electrical bills that accumulate fast. This will be beneficial on the long term and you will appreciate the savings over time.
