It’s not easy to find a trustworthy contractor when you need help for your home improvement; you have to consider important things before you can shake hands and sign the dotted line. You should place a few elements above the rest, however. At Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City, we share a rundown of what to check for.
Any home improvement project requires documents that the contractor needs to provide. This includes permits from the state, warranties, licenses and insurance. And even if they do have these documents, always make sure they can present them to you physically or provide ample proof of said accreditation.
2. Realistic Assessments
Contractors promising quick work, great results and cheap prices are not to be trusted. A true professional will always give you a realistic timeframe and budget for the project. When hiring, be sure to double-check with your contractor and ask about any concerns or possible issues. Always research on estimated and likely time periods or budgets to double-check.
3. Trained Eyes and Opinion
Any type of damage can affect your roof and go undetected until it’s too late. A trustworthy contractor can determine different types of leaks, shingle damage and other points of reference. This means a contractor must know exactly what to look for. A good indicator of this is from customer reviews or feedback, especially for companies.
This also applies to the design of the home. Window contractors offer different styles and colors for the windows. Always research their material and design choices. For example, we offer various window styles, from double-hung to bay and bow and casement windows.
4. Listed and Proven Benefits
It’s important for a contractor to show you proof that their product works and not just during the inspection. Your best bet for trustworthy contractors come from those who show the results of their years of experience.
Our materials for both the window and doors have been tested in terms of durability and energy efficiency. Not only do they have the Green Seal that shows their energy-saving capabilities, our glass packages have all been tested to last over 20 years.
