Whether you’re getting new casement, picture or double-hung windows, you must find a reputable contractor. Keep in mind that the efficiency, appeal and performance of your new windows depend on how they are installed. Also, proper installation contributes to a longer unit lifespan.
Here’s a guide to finding the right contractor for your window replacement project.
Request At Least Three Quotes
When looking for a home improvement contractor, obtain at least three quotes from different local companies. Getting estimates will give you an idea about the probable cost of your window replacement. Make sure that the quotes include the cost for both labor and materials.
Do Your Research
Thanks to the internet, researching your prospective contractors is easier. Visit the website of each contractor on your list. It would also help to check reviews, taking note of both the positive and negative.
Ask the Right Questions
You can learn more about a provider of residential windows by asking the right question. Ask your prospective contractors how long they’ve been in business and how much experience they have with residential windows. Besides asking about the products they offer, also request information about their warranties. Don’t forget to ask for proof of insurance for workers’ compensation, property damage and general liability.
Things to Keep in Mind
Don’t deal with a contractor who asks for a huge upfront or full payment even before the actual work starts. A reputable contractor would not pressure you into signing anything immediately. Remember that estimates should look similar unless the materials are completely different.
