Why Hodges is the Best Window Replacement Company for Your Job

December 20th, 2021, 4:15 PM

With a population of approximately 6.32 million, the Washington-Arlington-Alexandria metropolitan area is home to a lot of people and consequently a lot of buildings. As the residential and commercial landscape expands and these properties age, the need for replacement windows and doors is constant. 

Accordingly, there are plenty of window and door installers to be found across the region. To the unacquainted, Hodges Company may seem like just one among the many. But to those who know, Hodges is one among the few. Find out why customers have consistently chosen us as the best window replacement company in Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. for over a century.

Our history and track record

From its very inception in 1907, Hodges has operated as a small, locally and family-owned business. That makes a big difference. To this day, we are not married to any one type of window/door or one type of manufacturer, which gives us the freedom to make recommendations in your best interests. We do not have any controlling forces to appease; we are only accountable to our customers and our own high standards. 

Naturally, having high standards means we only sell quality products from quality providers. It means we only hire quality people (and often their children and even grandchildren!), investing in their development and progression from fieldwork to sales work. Our associates speak and act from experience, giving them special insight to all aspects of window and door styles, brands, installation, service, and repairs. We do not subcontract and all our employees are full-time. 

We know that we invest in our relationships internally, it translates to relationships externally — 70 percent of business is derived from repeat customers and referrals. That's because we treat people like they deserve to be treated — like people.

Our approach

Yes, Hodges Windows and Doors is a for-profit company and we actively pursue and look forward to doing business with you. But more than that, we're eager to work with you. When you talk, we listen. When you have questions, we'll mutually seek answers. We favor an approach that is consultative and collaborative, not pushy or aggressive. We will never place pressure on you or force your hand to make a sale. 

Instead, we strive for a shared vision informed by your needs and our know-how. As former installers and technicians, our salespeople speak from knowledge and experience, with an intimate understanding of how our partners' products look, feel, and function — and in the best contexts. Whether you're in line for replacement windows and doors, a historical replacement, or new construction requiring a keen eye for detail, you can trust that any recommendation we make is well-backed.

Our transparency

When it comes to window and door installation (or any form of contractor work, for that matter), no one likes surprises. What customers do like is clear expectations:

  • Who are the people showing up on my private property?
  • What will they be doing when they're here?
  • When will they be doing it, and for how long?

To fail to convey these details undermines trust and goodwill between business and client, which is why Hodges Windows and Doors takes great care with customer communications. Once your service appointment is scheduled, you'll receive an email introducing the lead installer or foreman on your job, what to expect, and when to expect them. And you'll easily be able to identify them with branded vehicles and uniforms. 

Our quality guarantee

Another thing you can expect from Hodges is quality — in fact, we guarantee it. Every window or door installation we perform is closely supervised by an experienced foreman and backed by a 5-year labor warranty (if a product is for any reason misinstalled, it's almost always evident within the first 1-2 years). Our technical warranty program aligns with the warranties of our partnering manufacturers — if there is a replacement or repair covered by a manufacturer's warranty, Hodges will render those services with pride. Overall, we stand behind our workmanship and the products we carry, and will go out of our way to resolve any issues with either.

Our accessibility

Hodges is not one of those window and door replacement companies that only exists in the ether. We make it a point to be present, always with real people to talk to, whether it's over the phone or face-to-face at either of our two beautiful showrooms. At both our Falls Church (in the immediate D.C. metro area) and Ashburn locations, you'll be able to test windows and doors from top suppliers in their natural habitat (installed within wall displays), getting a great sense of their look and feel before your purchase. 

Open up to Hodges for your replacement window and door needs

Hodges is regarded as one of the best window replacement companies in Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. for many reasons, but the most important is our commitment to you. Do not hesitate to visit us or reach out for any of your window and door replacement, installation, or repair needs.

Everything was excellent. The salesman offered good advice and provided examples of how the end result would look. Hodges' workers arrived on time and worked quickly. The lead installer was quite knowledgeable as well, so the job was done neatly and without incident.

Before, we could never keep up with the cold. Now we just turn the heat on, and it stays in the building. Complaints are way down, and we're very happy.
