One vital consideration when deciding to replace your windows is finding a contractor. Should you look for companies that specialize in window installation, or should you search for a general contractor instead? Both camps have their own sets of pros and cons.
If you’re doing several home improvement projects, you may think that a general contractor may be enough to handle everything. After all, you’ve already hired one for something else, why not just hire the person for your window replacement as well? But there are also advantages to using a specialized contractor.
For energy-efficient replacement windows, performance depends greatly on installation. Poorly installed windows might perform badly enough to counteract any savings you may get from your efficient windows. This is not to say that general contractors are poor installers of windows. Instead, it’s a reminder that certain styles and types of windows are better handled by contractors who are trained and experienced in window installation.
Choosing Renewal by Andersen® to do the installation means you’re also getting a wide range of customization options for your windows. Whatever size or shape you need for your replacement windows, you’ll find that our professionals can get you a product that is 100% right for your home. You can also choose specific security hardware, style, color and even grille options for your replacement windows.
Some window warranties require that the products be installed by certified window replacement companies. Choosing a general contractor might not entitle you to some of the terms and conditions granted by your warranty.
