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.
