Working with a great contractor can make a big difference in the outcome of your window replacement project. But before you hire one, you must first assess their expertise. One way to do this is to ask the right questions. Apart from their credentials and qualifications like proof of licenses and insurance, ask them questions related to the project itself. We highlight some of them below.
1. “How long will the project take to complete?”
A window installation project can be finished within a day, but the crew may have to return the next day, depending on the number of windows that need to be replaced and the size of your home. Check the estimate provided to you to get an idea of whether or not this will be the case.
2. “Can you give me an itemized estimate?”
Your contractor should provide you with a copy of the estimate. Make sure that everything is precise and detailed, including the materials, labor and other expenses, like the cleanup. The information in the estimate will help you address any disputes that may arise during the project.
3. “What type of warranty do you offer?”
Even after the installation is complete, problems may occur that cause the windows to suffer damage. Before you sign the contract, make sure you read up on the details of the warranty that comes with your new windows. The warranty should provide information that dictates how defects will be dealt with by the window manufacturer, should your windows have them.
4. “How do you handle service issues?”
You know you’re working with a reputable window contractor if they provide a plan to help you keep your window investment in great condition and guide you when it comes to warranties. An thorough answer to this question should give you the assurance that they’ll still be around for the entirety of your windows’ lifespan.
