company. Simply knowing that another person has had a good experience with a window company prior to calling them lessens your chance of hiring a problem.
• If you have the time, call a few window replacement
companies to look at your job. This will help you determine fair market price. This does not mean you should always go with the lowest price, you should go with the company you feel most comfortable with, who is offering the best products, and who you feel will do the best job. If an individual is offering a real low price you should ask yourself "why?".
• Make sure the company or individual has insurance. As mentioned above there are many fly-by-night window replacement companies that may not be insured. If you skip this part you could be held liable for an uninsured window replacement worker's injury at your house. They should also have liability insurance. If they do something that ruins a major area of your house they should be insured to pay for their mistakes.
• Ask the window replacement company what types of windows they suggest using. If you are looking for an extremely low price, the window replacement company may offer a lower quality window. It is worth the extra money to make sure that your windows are of acceptable quality…otherwise you will pay more money in the long run. Ask about warrantees, energy efficiency, and styles of available products.
• Always get a statement of work performed in writing. Keep this filed away. Make sure the statements clearly lay out what work is to be performed.
• Ask he company if their work and products come with guarantees. Make sure you get these things in writing. These are all factors to weigh when looking at the total estimates left by different window replacement companies. Most window warranties from window companies are only good if the product is installed properly..another reason to make sure you hire a quality pro.
• Some window replacement companies require an upfront payment. If you have hired a smaller window replacement service, and they require money upfront to help pay for materials, make sure you have a refund policy stated in your agreement if they end up not working out. Also, this upfront amount should never be over 30% of the total cost of your job.
• Check in on the window replacement company's progress regularly…try to catch potential problems or misunderstandings before it is too late.
Good luck with your window replacement needs!
