Window replacement isn’t something that you need to do frequently. You’ll probably only have to tackle this project once or twice in your lifetime. That’s why when you do, you need to properly plan for it.
As with a roofing replacement, the success (or failure) of a window replacement project depends on the initial consultation. Your conversation with your prospective contractor sets the tone for the entire process, so you need to ask the right questions to ensure you buy good products and hire the best crew for the job.
The following are four questions you should ask during the consultation.
What Window Brands Do You Carry?
Like most roof repair contractors, the majority of window installers tend to specialize in just a handful of products. One-trick ponies aren’t necessarily better than those who are knowledgeable of multiple different window brands since they can have dedicated installers for each line.
The biggest advantage of using a contractor with expertise in different products is choice. Right off the bat, you’ll be able to compare and contrast the likes of Andersen, Marvin, Pella and MI Windows, saving you time and energy.
What Are Your Design Options?
Customization is one of the benefits of a 21st-century window replacement. Since one single window type isn’t suitable for every architectural style, it’s imperative to have the freedom to put together the design elements that make the most sense for your home.
Could You Provide Samples of Your Past Projects?
The same as credentialed roofing contractors, reputable window installers love the opportunity to showcase their previous projects and provide you with helpful references. Only contractors with something to hide would be reluctant to share samples of their past work.
How Will You Protect the Property During Installation?
You should only hire a window contractor who can articulate exactly how the crew will safeguard your house from construction debris and messes during installation. Ask for a detailed explanation of the process so you can look up the details in the contract upon signing.
