Are you planning to get new windows for your home? Window installation or replacement can be a very technical process, so it’s best to let the pros do it and hire a contractor. However, you shouldn’t just hire any contractor you find. Our team of experts have a quick guide to help you make sure you’re getting the right people for the job.
If you have a list of window contractors that you could hire, make sure you narrow it down to local contractors only. Local contractors are more familiar with the climate and building codes in your area. Also, these contractors have offices and warehouses that are a short drive away at worst, so they can arrange meetings and even perform site visits easily.
Check for Credentials
A certified local contractor will have the right documents to prove that they are “legit”. You’d want to look for certifications to make sure the people working on the project are qualified to perform window replacement. You should also check with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) to see if they are registered as a business qualified to operate in your area.
Check Out Customer Feedback
Local contractors that have a good reputation will have many customers in your area. There’s a good chance that some of these customers are friends or neighbors that will be more than willing to share their experience working with the contractor. Take note of things that make them stand out (pros) and any criticisms that you can prepare for in case you decide to hire that particular contractor.
Check the Estimates
Whether you’re having your windows checked, or you’re getting a set of casement windows in your home, you should get a quote or estimate for your project. Aside from checking if the project is reasonably priced, you should also make sure that the estimate is detailed to avoid getting caught off-guard by hidden fees.
