  • Do determine what suits your home

Replacement windows in Peoria, Il, and the surrounding areas, come in different types and materials. Each type and material has its own function and quality. Their costs may vary, as well. For instance, clad wood is energy-efficient and is not high maintenance. Vinyl windows, on the other hand, are the most affordable option today. Knowing the best fit for your home and budget will give you an easier time choosing the perfect windows for your home.

  • Do spend wisely

Stick to features that are valuable and avoid unnecessary upgrades. For instance, our High Performance™ Low-E4® glass will boost your window’s energy efficiency. This will assure you that our windows will be worth your money. Our exclusive TruScene® insect screens will also benefit your home with its advanced features.

"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
