The quality of your replacement windows is only as good as the quality of the installation. You can splurge on the best products on the market, but if the installation isn’t handled properly, your windows won’t perform correctly. To ensure you are benefiting from flawless workmanship as well as high-quality materials, you need to hire a highly experienced, trustworthy contractor. Here’s how to find the best contractor for the job:
Confirm That They Have a Valid License
It should be easy to obtain a contractor’s license information and contact your state’s Department of Labor and Industries to check its validity. Reputable window contractors, including Renewal by Andersen®, will be happy to provide their license information. Note that a contractor’s license is different from a business license.
Check Their Insurance Coverage
Obtaining a contractor’s insurance information should be just as easy. In addition to checking the validity, confirm that the insurance coverage includes general liability insurance and workers’ compensation, which cover accidental property damage and injuries, respectively.
Verify That the Contractor Is a Full-Service Company
A full-service company takes care of everything, without the aid of subcontractors and other third parties. Renewal by Andersen is one such company, and our clients have found it incredibly convenient to have only one company to reach out to regardless of what stage the window replacement process is in. For us, this gives us absolute control over the outcome of your window replacement project, from the replacement window design and build and installation and warranty.
Review the Estimate Carefully
At this point, you may already have received written quotes from a few window companies. (Any company who doesn’t provide a written estimate should be crossed off your list.) Renewal by Andersen consultants won’t pressure you to sign the estimate; in fact, we encourage our potential clients to read and understand the terms before signing.
