Your new windows will last longer when installed correctly by skilled professionals. Speaking to at least three contractors will help you find the right people to do the job and make informed decisions for your project. Read on to get tips on how to prepare for window replacement consultations.
As much as possible, hire a local contractor to replace your windows. You can ask your friends, colleagues and family for companies they can recommend. The internet can also help in finding window installers in your area. Once you have a list of prospective installers, it’s time to do your research. Luckily, many companies have websites or social media pages where you can check portfolios and read reviews.
Schedule an Appointment
After completing your research, the next step is to schedule consultations. It helps to list down questions you wish to ask your prospective contractors. Ask how long they have been in business and request to see proof of license and insurance. You also want to know about the features of the replacement windows they install.
During the Consultation
During the consultation, ask as many questions as possible. It’s the perfect time to clarify details unclear to you while doing your online research or reference check. Request written estimates, ask how their installation process works and determine their payment options. Don’t forget to inquire about the warranties they offer.
After Speaking to Contractors
Following your consultations, compare estimates. Price should not be the only factor you should consider when choosing a contractor. It pays to invest in a company that installs high-quality windows with comprehensive warranties. You also want to hire professionals who are easy to communicate with and attentive to your needs.
