To help you find the ideal contractor for your project, it’s important to ask the appropriate questions during your consultation. Here are some you should ask.
Are You Licensed and Insured?
Before hiring contractors, you should ask whether they are licensed and insured. Remember that licensing requirements vary per state. But when it comes to insurance, your contractor must have liability insurance and workers’ compensation insurance to protect you if something goes wrong during your project. Don’t forget to verify the validity of their license and insurance policies.
Can You Provide a Detailed Estimate?
It’s recommended to get three quotes from different window contractors before making your decision. This would help you avoid shady companies that take advantage of homeowners. A trustworthy contractor will give you a written estimate that includes a breakdown of the costs associated with your project.
How Long Will the Installation Take?
Custom windows usually take longer to be made and delivered, so if you selected these windows, expect a longer timeframe for your project to be finished. That said, ask for a timeline so that you’ll know what to expect throughout the window replacement process. If you have a timeline, you can relax knowing that your project is moving forward.
What Does Your Warranty Cover?
A manufacturer’s warranty covers problems resulting from manufacturing defects. On the other hand, a workmanship warranty covers the installation done by the contractor. Ensure the contractor you choose provides both of these warranties for your peace of mind.
