Frequently Asked Questions























































After thousands of customers and tens of thousands of windows installed throughout Chicago & New York metropolitan area, we have compiled a list of the most popular questions that we are asked most often; including some great tips and facts on protection against break-ins.

Q. What makes you different from the other companies?

We manufacture locally and invite you to visit our factory and staff. Some companies do not even have an office for you to visit.

All of our window installers are employees of Factory Trained Installation Company. We pride ourselves in training and equipping our installers to work on your projects using our time tested installation techniques.

We are members of numerous organizations that scrutinize us as a company, a window manufacturer and contractor.

For instance, we are a contributing member of the National Fenestration Rating Council, we are an Energy Star® Partner, a member of Efficient Windows Energy Collaborative.

We invite you to visit the website. We have thousands of happy customers.

Q. Can you give me a ballpark price?

It’s a little difficult to give you a ballpark price on the web because there are many factors. For instance, what is the exterior of you house? The interior? How old is the house? Is there any termite/dry rot damage? What kind of install do you want? Do you want special trim?

However, we will give you a FREE estimate or ballpark price if you come to the showroom, however, we will always estimate high until we can see your home. We don’t believe in the “bait and switch” technique of sales.

Q. What is the advantage of vinyl over aluminum/wood?

Monda Window & Door's vinyl framed windows are maintenance free, never need painting, will not corrode, shrink, crack or fade. Vinyl is a natural insulator, with the similar insulation properties as wood. 

Q. What is High Performance LoE2 Glass?

High Performance LoE2 glass products give you year-round energy savings and comfort by helping manage the sun's energy and the heating system energy in your home.

High Performance LoE2 glass products are coated with microscopically thin, optically transparent layers of silver sandwiched between layers of antireflective metal oxide coatings.

These "smart" coatings provide optimal year-round energy saving benefits by selectively filtering the sun's energy in summer and reducing heat loss in winter. In the summer, High Performance LoE2 glass products let in visible sunlight while blocking infrared and ultraviolet solar energy that drives up cooling costs and damages curtains, window treatments, carpeting and furnishings. And in the winter, High Performance LoE2 glass products offer greater comfort and reduced heating costs by reflecting room-side heat back into the room.

Q. Do you have a showroom I can visit?

Yes, please get maps/directions here.

Q. Can I/my contractor install the windows?


Q. When can you give us a free an in-home estimate?

Virtually anytime Monday-Saturday. Call 858 689-9737 for a free in-home estimate. Since this is a very busy time, the only request is that all decision makers are present at the time of the presentation. We are not high pressure, but since it is a free in-home estimate, we want to get all of the questions answered at that time. We bring samples, prices, etc.

Q. How far will you go to install?

At present, we will install in New York State and Illinois.

Q. How do I qualify for energy rebates?

To qualify for the energy rebates, you must upgrade your window purchase to our High Performance LoE2 glass. Rebate payment comes to you directly from your energy provider, as long as funds are still available.

Q. Do you put in Argon gas?

Our windows come standard with a dead-air space separating the two panes of glass in an insulated glass unit. Argon can be added for an additional price  

Q. Can I get House Armor in all of The Window Factory Products (windows, patio doors, entry doors, french doors, garden windows, and bay & bow windows)?

Currently, you can have House Armor installed in our vinyl windows and patio doors. We are, however, working hard to make it available in our other product lines and you should expect to see these in the near future!

Q. The idea of increased security windows is great, but can you offer us some true statistics about break-ins?

Nine out of 10 home break-ins could have been prevented if homeowners knew how to properly burglarproof their homes.
One in 10 tens homes in the United States will be burglarized this year. A break-in occurs approximately every 10 seconds.
3 Burglars will typically spend less than five minutes, and in some cases as little as 60 seconds, breaking into a home.
Approximately 25 percent of home break-ins occur through a window. Another 22 percent occur at the back door, which in Southern California typically means a sliding patio glass door.
The summer months mean a surge in home break-ins as many people leave their homes for vacations.
Approximately 60 percent of break-ins occur during daylight hours, when homeowners are at work.
