Whether you’re installing a new set of double-hung or picture windows, a window replacement project requires a significant amount of time and funds to complete. To ensure best results, you need to work with a reputable, experienced contractor.
Here’s a guide that can help you hire the right window contractor.
Vet Your Contractor
When looking for the right contractor for your replacement project, make sure to review each candidate’s website clearly to understand the types of services they provide. In addition, look up customer reviews on websites like Yelp, Google, and the Better Business Bureau to get a feel for the quality of work they provide.
Meet With Them
Once you’ve narrowed down your list to a few candidates, it’s time to schedule meetings. At this stage, ask each candidate for their proof of insurance and make sure to get a fixed price before signing the contract.
During your meeting, be on the look out for red flags, which could include the contractor asking for a large cash deposit or the full payment up front or pressuring you to sign the contract immediately. If you feel like something is off, cross that contractor off your list as these are not the people you want to install your windows.
Prepare for the Final Meeting
After you’ve made your choice on who your contractor will be, prepare for the final meeting. During the meeting, make sure to reaffirm your initial quote, agree upon the payment plan and obtain a paper trail of important documents such as your contract, project plans, bills and invoices, and proof of insurance. Once you have all these in hand, your window replacement project can finally start.
