A window may just be a small part of your home, but it can take so much time and money if you don’t take its replacement seriously. At Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City, we can help you replace your residential windows without the hassle and regret. We got you covered with these helpful tips:
Hire a Professional
Select at least three options recommended by your friends or family and ask for estimates. Most reputable contractors do not require payment for estimates, even for an in-home consultation. Make the most of these estimates and choose which one of them can serve you best. Your choice should be based on experience, credentials, which include permit, license, and recognitions, and the manufacturer brands carried.
Check The materials
Reputable contractors are in partnerships with manufacturers. Make sure you choose a contractor that carries good brands. You can always check the quality of their materials through reviews available online. At Renewal by Andersen, we can install double hung windows of such high quality you can never find anywhere: we make them with High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass and Fibrex® frame.
Don’t Forget The Warranties
Before the installation, ask your contractor about warranties. Be sure you get two types: materials and workmanship. Material warranty is usually provided by the manufacturer and can for several years or decades, while workmanship warranty covers a few years’ worth of repair or replacements of parts.
Renewal by Andersen warranties, for instance, includes a 20-year limited warranty for Fibrex and the glass package, a 10-year limited warranty for the frame, sash and locking mechanism, and a 2-year limited warranty on installation.
Double-Check The Paperwork
Do not settle for verbal promises and look for these words in writing.Review the contract thoroughly to prevent unwanted surprises during installation. It is also where cost, installation procedures, and insurance details are indicated and officially agreed by both parties. For instance, if you want a sliding windows installation, make sure the contract indicates how they are going to install it, what will happen after installation, and how they are going to collect the payment.
