When you need windows for your new construction project or replacements to upgrade an older property, you’ll need a reliable window contractor. To ensure you’re getting the best service, ask questions before signing the dotted line. Below are a few key areas you should cover with your prospective provider before deciding.
What to Ask Your Window Contractor
1. How Long Have You Been in Business?
You want to hire a team that's been around a while. The longer they’ve been in business, the longer they’ve been satisfying clients. It also often means that all their beginner mistakes are in the past. Ask how long the company has existed, how much experience the individual contractors have, and if the company has performed jobs like yours in the past. For instance, a general remodeling contractor may have years of experience with kitchens and bathroom updates, but next to no experience installing windows.
2. Are You Bonded & Insured?
Bonding protects you and the contractor against losses due to criminal activity perpetrated by their employees while they are in your house or on your property. Meanwhile, business Insurance covers you against liability if a team member should fall off a ladder or otherwise suffer injury. It also protects you financially in case they should accidentally injure someone else or damage your property.
3. Can You Provide References?
Ask your contractor to show you photos, video, or actual buildings, so you can see the finished results of their work. Moreover, ask if they can provide the names and numbers of satisfied customers. Then, once you've been given these references, be sure to follow up by contacting several. Ask these prior customers if they were satisfied with the quality of the work and the products. Did the team clean up properly after completing the job? Were there any unexpected costs?
