Window and Door FAQs

Premium Replacement Windows for Kanas City Homeowners

Below are some of the frequently asked questions from our customers.


Why should I consider replacing my old windows and doors?

New replacement windows fit properly because they are custom made to fit the existing opening. Both windows and doors installed by Bordner give your home added beauty, security and energy efficiency.

You will see a significant savings in your energy bill in the very first month after replacing your existing windows and doors.


Is all glass used in replacement windows the same?

No, not at all. Special consideration should be given to glass options such as tempered glass, Low-E glass, Argon gas, and Krypton gas. Each option offers various levels of energy efficiency and safety. Your Bordner representative will be happy to help you determine which options are best for you.

What should I look for in a replacement window or door warranty?

At Bordner, we believe that a manufacturers faith in its own product should be reflected in their product warranty. Simply put, if the manufacturer believes in its own product, that product should have a great warranty.

That is why we have partnered with an industry leader who has been in business for over 100 years. Click here to learn about the window and door products we offer.

Which is more important in saving energy, the frame or the glass?

Seventy percent of an average window is glass; therefore, your biggest opportunity to save on energy comes from the glass. For this reason, Bordner offers a window that exceeds Energy Star requirements and qualifies for energy efficiency tax credits.

Quite often, a replacement window will feel drafty around the edges. A frame that lacks insulating value generally causes this problem. That’s why, at Bordner, we often recommend fiberglass windows. Fiberglass does not transfer heat or cold and doesn’t require foam filling like vinyl windows.

Should I use a professional remodeler to install my windows and doors?

Generally speaking, the quality of any product is only as good as its installation. An improper window or door installation could reduce the energy efficiency, do structural damage to your home, and even void the manufacturer’s warranty.

Bordner experts are trained to do the job right the first time. This ensures maximum performance from your windows and doors and eliminates future problems. From start to finish, you will be satisfied with your installation experience when you select Bordner.

Bordner Bliss


Bordner is a very professional company from the sales staff & office staff to the install crews. They retain very knowledgeable and skilled tradesmen to do the work and they showed up when they said they would.

The work was done right the first time and the warranty is just an added bonus. Thanks to all the people who worked on our projects!

We did a complete roof preventive maintenance make over — Bordner was great to work with. No salespeople – they are all professionals in their roles. We always received full disclosures, updates and notifications. We felt very well informed from the whole team. The work was done on-schedule and the clean up was very thorough — not a scrape left behind for us to clean up.


I contracted with Bordner to install a new roof on a home I am selling. I was very pleased with the workmanship and time it took them to complete the job (it only took them about four and a half hours).

They stand behind their work, their promises & are one of the most widely respected companies in the Kansas City area. I highly recommend Bordner Home Improvement.
