Windows play several important roles in your home, from increasing your property’s appeal to keeping your indoor spaces comfortable. They will stay in good shape with regular maintenance, but they won’t last forever. Once the need for window replacement comes, it’s essential to hire an experienced contractor for your project.
Before hiring a company, don’t forget to ask these questions.
Can You Show Proof of License and Insurance?
You should request to see proof of license and insurance before hiring any home improvement contractor. Hiring a licensed professional will give you the assurance that if something wrong happens, you won’t be held responsible for covering damages. Only consider companies with liability and workers’ compensation insurance.
Can You Provide a Detailed Quote?
With a detailed estimate, you will have a better idea of how much your replacement windows will cost. Estimates usually include the expected cost of labor, material and cleanup. You shouldn’t be able to experience difficulty obtaining them from reputable professionals.
How Long Will It Take to Replace My Windows?
Sometimes, windows take time to be delivered, especially customized or specialized units. You might need to adjust your project’s timeline, depending on when your new windows will arrive. It’s also a good idea to ask your prospective contractor how long it will take to complete your project.
What Type of Warranty Do You Offer?
The warranty your contractor offers says a lot about the dependability of their products and services. A reliable contractor who is confident about their workmanship will not hesitate to provide you with comprehensive warranties. At Renewal by Andersen® of Alaska, our windows come with a fully transferable limited warranty, with 20-year coverage on glass and Fibrex® material, two-year coverage on installation and 10-year coverage on hardware.
