Your Guide to Hiring the Correct Window Contractor

A home window replacement project is a significant, yet worthy investment for homeowners. With that in mind, you’ll want your replacement project to run as smoothly as possible. After all, the slightest mistake can cost you a lot of money just to rectify the problem, and this is something that you’ll want to avoid at all cost. Thankfully, by hiring the right person for the job, you can avoid any costly window installation mistakes.

Here is your guide to hiring the right window contractor for your project.

Vet Your Contractors

When you’re looking for the right contractors to install your new windows, it’s highly recommended that you vet them before signing a contract. To accomplish this, make sure that you request a quote from three to four contractors around your area, and check the internet for any reviews from their previous clients. That way, you can determine if they really are as trustworthy and reliable as they claim to be.

Meet Them, and Look for Red Flags

Once you’ve vetted your potential window replacement service providers, meet them one by one, and look for any red flags that indicate that you should part ways with their company. These red flags often include lack of proof of insurance, refusal to give a fixed price, requesting the entire project cost upfront or pressure to sign the contract immediately.

Prepare for Your Final Contractor Meeting

Finally, before the project commences, set a date and time to meet with your chosen contractor. At this stage, you should reconfirm your initial quote, agree upon your payment plan and obtain a paper trail of your contract, project plans, order changes, bills and invoices, proof of insurance and contractor correspondence. Once you have these, you can now start having your windows replaced.

"Excellent service and product! They checked in with me every few weeks while we were waiting for the order. I was impressed with Sam, who measured my windows and headed the installation crew. He was respectful and patient with his team. They cleaned up after themselves. Before the new windows I had huge windows that didn’t open. Now I feel much safer and get better temperatures in those rooms."

"My experience with Anderson Renewal was amazing! From the first meeting with Miranda to choose my windows and doors to the installation provided by Tim and his crew was a pleasure! I just bought a home built in the 1960's that needed new windows and a new double front door with sidelights. As everyone knows Anderson Windows are great, but it was the people I interacted with from Anderson that made it such a great experience. It took three days for the windows and door to be installed and they "worked" every minute they were here. My huge front door took most of the day to install because they had to put in a new header and other improvements to make it fit! They even put up new drywall on the inside. Many people in the neighborhood have stopped by to comment on my beautiful front door! I think the crew left my house cleaner than it was before they started! Constantly cleaning up after themselves. I am thrilled with my windows and feel lucky to have met the team at Anderson."
