Finding a contractor for your home window replacement project isn’t as easy as it sounds. A reputable company can help ensure that your investment lasts a long time. Keep in mind that research matters when hiring anyone to work on your home.
Here’s a guide to help you find a good window contractor.
Go for a Local Company
Ask your family, friends, neighbors and colleagues for local window companies they can recommend. You can also look for local contractors online. When you hire a local installer, you can get better references and even get to see their work in person. It will be easier to find their office, and they are often easier to reach.
Research and Get Quotes
Obtain at least three estimates from local contractors. Doing so will give you an idea about the cost of your double hung replacement windows. Check if their websites are updated and looking professional. Take note of both their positive and negative reviews. Over the phone, ask the companies how long they have been in business and how much experience they have in window installation. Also, ask for references.
Schedule an In-Home Consultation
You should meet your prospective contractors in person so you can talk about the specifics of your projects as well as expectations. Get proof of insurance, including the name of their insurance provider, policy number and policy limits. Discuss the warranties they offer, and get a fixed price before signing anything.
Get Ready for Your Final Meeting
Make sure to reconfirm your initial quote and finalize your payment terms. Get a written document of your contract, project plans, bills and invoices, order changes, proof of insurance and contractor correspondence.
