Replacement Windows: Enhancing Comfort, Efficiency, and Style


Replacement windows are custom-built window units designed to replace existing windows in a home or building. They are specifically made to fit into the same opening as the old windows, ensuring a seamless installation process. These windows come in a wide array of styles, materials, and finishes to cater to different preferences and architectural designs. The primary purpose of replacement windows is to enhance a property’s energy efficiency, aesthetics, and security while addressing issues associated with outdated or damaged windows.

Usually takes a total of 4 visits and 3 days, excluding the time spent waiting for the windows to be custom made for your home.

Starting with our first chat, Cool View will set up a convenient time to come to your home and go over the entire process and take measurements.

Once the measurements and the style of window have been solidified, you will receive a professional, detailed proposal from Cool View!

After you agree to the terms and conditions of the proposal, Cool View will collect a deposit and place the order for your windows. You will also receive a packet of information for permitting which will include a notice of commencement (NOC) – see below- already pre-filled and ready for your signature with our streamlined notary process!

A notice of commencement is a vitally important part of the permitting process, and per state of Florida law (Chapter 713 of the Florida Statutes) no inspection can be scheduled or completed without a NOC recorded with the clerk of court for the county that the home is located in. While this may be intimidating it all boils down to one thing.

You’ve selected the best window and door installation team in Tampa Bay and we will make this process a breeze for you. It takes about 1 minute of your time!

Once the permit is approved, and the windows arrive, the fun begins!

Prior to our arrival, we have already picked up the windows and doors, insured that all the hardware and tools we need to install them are on the truck, all the cordless tools are charged, and crew needs are covered.

The professional Cool View team will arrive at your home, with your windows, typically around 8AM, but we will tell a more exact time a few days prior to our arrival.

We have a company truck and large cargo trailer to safely transport your windows. Generally, we park in front of your house, in the street. If that’s a problem in your neighborhood, let us know so we can make other arrangements.

First, of course, the old windows have to come out. We remove your old windows and take care of disposing of them in a responsible way. If you want to save all or some, make sure to let us know.

Most installations only take a day, but some may be more involved and take more time.

When we install a window, we take great care to make sure it fits in the opening properly and operates smoothly. We caulk any seams that need it, and we make sure that your windows won’t channel water into your home.

After the installation is complete, and our quality control supervisor has inspected each and every window and door WITH YOU and you are satisfied, the final payment will be collected, and the county inspection scheduled.

The building inspector will come to your home and inspect the windows. Sign the permit placard placed on the closest window to the front door and that concludes your window installation journey!

Each of your top quality windows are produced, for the most part, right here in Florida by real Floridians. Each order is placed the same day you make your initial payment and takes its place in the production lineup. The volume of work and material availability at the factory will dictate the length of time it takes to get your new custom sized windows!

Cool View will keep you informed so you know what’s happening with your windows.

As a homeowner in Florida, you absolutely can do this, but without the decades of experience Cool View has, the process can be fraught with pitfalls and expensive lessons learned. Often homeowners will order their own windows and try to pay an installer directly, only to realize that they spent thousands of dollars on windows that won’t fit or are incompatible with their home, that they cannot return and now must hire a window company and start the process all over.

An additional hurdle for homeowners is navigating the permitting process or worse yet, skipping the permitting process all together. Navigating this process can be simple if you’ve done it hundreds of times and know all the intricacies of the system. IF that is not the case it can be tedious and full of
bureaucratic roadblocks. Should a homeowner in Florida start work on their own home with no permit, and the city becomes aware of the fact, they can place a stop work order on your front door. This is not
a good path to walk down.

The Florida building code (section R-301.2.1.2) mandates that all new windows installed in windborne debris regions must have the proper protection. This is a very detailed and time-consuming subject, if you’d like to read more here is a helpful link.

Cool View Windows and Doors offers all its clients a lifetime warranty on all workmanship related issues, IF FOR WHATEVER REASON your windows weren’t installed to the highest standards of quality and strength, rest assured not only will Cool View repair or replace the workmanship, but we will do so.
