Planning a window replacement requires careful consideration of a few key factors that will determine the success of your project. One of the most critical things to consider is who to hire for the job. You have two general options: a general contractor or a window installer. Which is better? Today, Renewal by Andersen® of Central Pennsylvania, a trusted expert in replacement windows, shares some insight:
What to Consider
Start by researching the companies operating in your local area. Check out their websites and see what type of windows and installation services they offer. Also, read their reviews to see whether customers are generally happy with their services. Once you’ve narrowed down your list, contact your candidates and request estimates.
You’ll want to choose someone with a strong reputation with the community. They must also provide proof of their business license which is required by most states to operate legally. Most states require that a home remodeling business should have two types of insurance to protect the homeowner and the workers.
Consider What’s Best for Your Home
Your new windows will only perform as expected if they are high-quality products and if the contractor installed them correctly. While a general contractor can be a good option for window replacement, a window replacement contractor is typically more knowledgeable and experienced when it comes to window replacement jobs. Both are qualified to do window replacement, but a window contractor offers more specialized services and likely will offer stronger warranties too. This is because window installers are more experienced with window replacement than general contractors, which means they can ensure a higher-quality installation!
