Choosing a window replacement contractor can be overwhelming, but if you know what to look for, you can narrow down your prospects into just one. To determine if a potential window installer is the right one for your needs, here are some of the things you need to look for.
Qualifications should be at the top of the list. Make sure that the prospective contractor is licensed, insured, and certified by manufacturers. Ask for their certifications and verify if the license is up-to-date with your local county business office or licensing board. Experience also matters — ask the contractor for a list of references and get in touch with them.
Reviews and References
Get to know your prospective contractor both online and offline. Read customer reviews on Yelp or Google. If you can, talk with friends or family who may have had windows replaced by that contractor. You can also interview a previous customer in the reference list, asking questions about their overall experience working with the contractor. The answer they provide will give you an insight into the contractor’s level of experience and customer service.
The price of a window replacement project should offer value to you as a customer. Cheap service can save you money, but it could mean leaving you with sloppy work and inferior materials. Before making your selection, get multiple quotes from your prospective contractors. Review each one — it should provide detailed information about the labor fees, material costs and warranties associated with the project. They should include any additional costs that may arise during the project if things don’t go according to plan.
