Replacing your old windows can increase your home’s curb appeal and improve its defense against weather extremes. It can also help reduce your energy costs and improve your indoor comfort. To enjoy these benefits, you must work with an experienced professional for your project. One way to determine if someone is qualified to do the job is by asking questions.
Assess your prospective contractor better by asking these practical questions.
Do You Have Proper Licensing and Insurance?
You must always ask for proof of license and insurance before hiring a home improvement company. Licensing requirements vary by state or municipality. Working with licensed and insured professionals will keep you protected if something goes wrong during window replacement.
When Did You Start Your Business?
Windows are a major investment, meaning you want to hire professionals who can do the job right the first time. Ask your potential contractor how long they have been replacing windows. Do background research, browse their websites, check portfolios and read customer reviews.
How Long Will the Window Replacement Take?
Delivery times for windows vary, especially for specialized or custom styles. Ask your contractor when your windows will be delivered so you can anticipate changes in your timeline. Having a general schedule or timeline will give you the assurance that your project is moving forward.
What Warranty Comes With the Windows and the Installation?
Don’t forget to ask which warranties come with the windows and their installation. Consider contractors who are offering comprehensive coverage with their products. The warranty that a company provides shows how sure they are that they can do the job efficiently. Moreover, material warranties protect you against manufacturing defects affecting the performance of your new windows.
