The options for custom windows are almost limitless. Windows can be made with metal, wood, or plastic. Different colors and wood finishes can be produced to match the decor and style of a home or business.

Custom windows can take some time to produce, although this depends on the complexity of the design and demand. When windows arrive it is best to let a professional installer put the windows in. This is especially helpful if older windows need to be taken out. Angie's list or Yelp.com can provide reviews of custom window retailers and installers in your area that have proven to be reputable. Always make sure to use a retailer that offers a good warranty and any installer is licensed and insured.
