Important Questions to Ask a Window Replacement Contractor

Like any other major home improvement, window replacement is a considerable  investment that can enhance your property’s energy efficiency, aesthetic appeal and overall value. This emphasizes the need to choose the right contractor, starting with asking the right questions. In today’s post, Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City shares some of the questions you should ask a prospective window replacement contractor.

“What types of windows do you offer?”

The windows offered by replacement window contractors vary. On one hand, you may find a contractor may offer just a few popular window styles in standard colors and finishes. On the other hand, you could find a full-service contractor that offers customization. If your window replacement plans call for something more than standard options, then the latter is what you should seek.

“Are you licensed and insured?”

Whether you need new roofing, doors or windows, it’s generally a good practice to ask about license and insurance. They are more than just proof of a business’s legitimacy: they are your protection against accidental property damage and worksite accidents.

“How do you install replacement windows?”

After a home inspection, a prospective window replacement contractor should be able to discuss the window replacement process and give an approximate timeline. They should have a plan in place for keeping air leaks to a minimum. Ask them about how they will help you prepare for installation and how they keep the work areas clean, as well as how they will clean up and dispose of the old windows.

“Does your warranty cover installation?”

Window problems are, more often than not, caused by installation mistakes. This is why you should ask a prospective contractor if they offer installation or workmanship warranties. Some contractors offer some kind of quality guarantee, while some manufacturers offer workmanship coverage through certified contractors. Our limited warranties at Renewal by Andersen include a two-year coverage for installation, in addition to a 20-year coverage for Fibrex® components and glass and a 10-year coverage for the frame, sash and locking mechanisms.
