4 Questions You Need to Ask Your Window Installer

When it comes to window replacement, there are a ton of contractors and companies out there. As such, finding the best window installer for your specific needs can be a tedious endeavor. One way to make it easier is to ask the right questions.  

Read on as your go-to roofers list the four questions you need to ask during a consultation with your window installer.

1. Can You Provide Examples of Your Past Work?

Ask your contractor to show you past window installation projects that they’ve done. By doing so, you can determine the quality of service that they can provide. A reputable contractor who does high-quality installations will be more than happy to show you their portfolio of work. If they’re able to show you plenty of examples and even provide references, that means they have the necessary experience.

2. Is There A Consultation Fee?

Just like roof inspection consultations, some companies offer free window consultations, while some ask for fees, so it’s important to clarify that with your contractor. Keep in mind that it isn’t a bad thing if they require a fee. It’s just a good idea to have that information beforehand so that you can include it in your budget. This way, you don’t get surprised by any sudden fees. 

3. Is Trim Work Included?

Ask if they do interior and exterior trim work. Some contractors include it in their service package, some do it for an additional fee, and some don’t do it at all. Knowing whether or not you’ll need to find another person to do the trim work will help you plan your project more efficiently.

4. How Long Will This Project Take?

The duration of the project will depend on the scope of the service. Obviously, the more windows that need to be installed, the longer the project will take. It’s crucial that you tell your contractor exactly what you need so that they can provide you with an accurate timeline. Avoid those who can’t provide you with a clear timeline or provide only vague estimates.
