5 Questions to Ask Your Window Contractor

Feb 20, 2015

Having your windows replaced can be a bit tedious. It’s important to know if the contractor you plan on hiring has the knowledge and expertise to ensure you get the best window replacement products and installation.

We at Valiant Home Remodelers are always ready to help. We offer quality replacement of siding, roofing, doors, and windows in Edison NJ and its surrounding areas. If you’re looking to replace your windows, here are a few guide questions to ask your potential window contractor:

1. How long have you been in the business?
Experienced contractors are always preferred over newer ones. As the old saying goes, “Experience is the best teacher.” The same goes for contractors. Those with more experience at their jobs are more likely to excel in what they do.

2. Are you a member of the Better Business Bureau?
Knowing that your window contractor is a member of the Better Business Bureau will keep you at ease. This means that Valiant Home Remodelers cares about the quality they provide to their customers.  Contractors that are accredited by the Better Business Bureau are most likely experienced and licensed.

3. What will be included in your services?
Ask about the window replacement process, from start to completion, as well as a written timeline. To avoid additional charges, it’s also a good idea to ask about how much the entire process is going to cost you.

4. What method of installation will you be using?
Ask your window contractor if they will be using the “pocket replacement” or the “full frame” installation technique. Pocket replacement involves the removal of the operating sash, but with the outer frame intact. Full-frame installation, on the other hand, involves the removal of the whole window down to its rough opening. Proper flashing, insulation, and sealing will help ensure that your windows will perform efficiently.

5. Are you backed by a major warranty?
Always ask if their services are backed by a warranty. If you don’t want to shell out additional expenses on repairs down the line, asking the scope of the warranty is a must as well.

Window replacement can be a complex job, and as a homeowner, you want to be sure that your contractors will get the job done right the first time. So it’s best to know more about your contractors before hiring them to replace your windows.
