Transform Window Materials

Transform Wood Windows

Transform offers several lines of energy-efficient and traditional-looking wooden windows for your home. Whether it is a classic hinged awning window or a custom bay window project. Transform’s wooden window options are guaranteed to last decades — but will require proper maintenance to avoid premature aging, wood rot and other issues that target wood materials.

To many, wooden window frames are considered more visually appealing, but they can also add additional costs to your window replacement project. To account for extra steps required with wooden frames like paint or stain, it is wise to account for paying an additional $100 per window compared to a vinyl counterpart. 

Popular window options for wood frames:

  • Awning
  • Bay
  • Bow
  • Double-Hung
  • Fixed
  • Sliding

Wood Window Warranty: 

  • Limited lifetime warranty; details vary 

Transform Vinyl Windows

Economical and low maintenance by design, Transform vinyl window options come in a wide range of exterior colors, glass and grille options. The energy-efficient materials are typically lower in price-point than options such as wood and require minimal maintenance, making them a popular choice among homeowners. Additionally, vinyl window frames don’t need to be painted or stained. 

Popular window options for vinyl frames:

  • Awning
  • Bay
  • Bow
  • Casement
  • Double-Hung
  • Fixed
  • Sliding

Vinyl Window: Warranty: 

  • Limited lifetime warranty; details vary 

Transform Aluminum Windows

Specifically engineered with coastal regions in mind, Transform’s aluminum window frames are manufactured to hold up to challenging climates, while paired with an affordable price-point. The window frames are more limited when it comes to styles and models, but serve as a sturdy, durable option with minimal maintenance required. A downside to aluminum frames is they may not provide as much insulation from hot and cold weather compared to other window frame materials. 

Popular window options for aluminium frames:

  • Sliding
  • Double-hung

Aluminum Window Warranty: 

  • Limited lifetime warranty; details vary 

Transform Composite Windows

Composite window frames are made from a mixture of both wood and plastic materials. They are lauded for their appearance, looking like a more high-maintenance wood frame, without requiring nearly as much upkeep. Taking care of a composite window frame is similar to taking care of a vinyl window frame. It is also an ideal choice for environmentally conscious homeowners since the frames are made from recycled materials. 

Popular window options for composite frames:

  • Awning
  • Double-Hung
  • Fixed

Composite Window Warranty: 

  • Limited lifetime warranty; details vary 

Transform Window Pricing 

Transform’s average window prices range from mid to high-tier levels depending on a range of factors including the window style and the frame’s material. For instance, a basic double-hung replacement window typically ranges between $600-$1200 installed. But a more involved bay window replacement would start at a higher price, around $2,000. 

Be aware that window prices may vary based on your location and the window sizes you are looking to install, along with the local labor cost involved. Expect a 10% increase or decrease to the cost to account for these variations, and use our window cost calculator to estimate the most  accurate prices in your region.

Transform Home Improvement Window Styles

Transform Garden Windows

Also known as a Greenhouse window, garden windows can add additional light to a space. They are a popular choice in kitchens above the sink. 

Transform Bay Windows

Always a crowd-pleaser, bay windows are a classic option featuring a large, fixed center glass panel shouldered by smaller windows that are either fixed or operational on either side. 

Transform Bow Windows

A row of four or five panes, bow windows give the illusion of a curved wall, which helps to open a space while gifting an abundance of natural light. 

Transform Double Hung Windows

Transform double-hung windows allow both a window’s upper and lower sashes to move up and down. The movable sashes both tilt inward allowing for easy cleaning of the exterior panes. On twin and triple units, homeowners can choose integral mulls for enhanced performance and a polished finish for their double-hung window. 

Transform Awning Windows

Awning windows offer ventilation as well as versatility through their hinged design. The windows — also known as casement windows — open with a crank outward, away from the home. 

Transform Geometric Fixed Windows 

Exactly as their name describes, geometric fixed windows are non-opening windows in fun, decorative shapes that provide both light and architectural interest.


Energy Efficient Windows

As a company, Transform believes in coupling energy efficiency with style. That is why they recommend homeowners do their research on a window company’s involvement in the popular ENERGY STAR program. Windows involved in the ENERGY STAR program will display stickers that show their National Fenestration Rating Council energy rating. The National Fenestration Rating Council is a critical agency that tests the following for windows:

  • U-Factor: a measurement that calculates how effective a window is at containing heat within your home 
  • Solar Heat Gain Coefficient: a measurement of how well a window can keep the sun’s heat from entering your home 
  • Visible Transmittance: a measurement of the amount of light a window allows to enter the home 

Transform Home Improvement Window Warranty 

Transform offers a limited lifetime warranty on their replacement window projects. Specific information regarding ratings and standards set for Transform windows is available through the manufacturer or its dealers and distributors. 

Transform believes in the quality and value of its replacement window products and backs each unit with a hassle-free limited lifetime warranty. As with all warranties, the exact details of Transform’s Limited Lifetime Warranty varies from product to product, and some exclusions may apply to your specific circumstances. Because of this, Modernize always advises homeowners and contractors to carefully examine the warranty documents of each product before making a purchase.
