How to Find a Window Replacement Contractor

Field the options

To help ensure that you find the right company for the job, you need to do your research that will help you narrow down your search for a reputable company. Make sure you do some homework on researching the company’s reputation and consider what they do, how much they charge, and whether they provide quality work.  

When it comes to window replacement contractors, referrals from friends and family are one of the best ways to find a trusted contractor. You can also post a question on your Facebook page, via Twitter, or through the NextDoor app. People are often very willing to share their experiences to help others make informed decisions. 

Do your research

How do you know if the contractor you’re looking at has the credentials and experience you need for your project? There are numerous steps you can take to ensure that contractors are licensed, qualified, bonded, insured, and working in compliance with all local requirements. You may want to do some digging online to discover what other states require for general contractor compliance. If a prospective contractor fails to provide these basic pieces of information, it may be difficult or even impossible for you to work with them effectively.

Set up a date

Once you narrowed down your list, you can start reaching out and ask for information about the location of the company, the costs of the services you’ll receive, and whatever additional detail you need. You want to know that the person heading up your window replacement work is local (ie: easy to reach when there’s a problem) and not some fly-by-night, P.O. Box front. 

A good local renovation company is going to be able to give precise recommendations about the best products for your situation. More importantly, they’re going to be able to give you accurate, up-to-date information on the laws that govern window replacement and on the best procedures for getting your new windows in place without breaking the bank or causing unnecessary disruption. And don’t be scared to ask for, and more importantly, check references. An experienced window replacement contractor should have no problem providing you with a couple of references. Talking to a reference can provide you with helpful information regarding their window replacement experience and provide you with valuable feedback on how the materials have held up since installation. 

4 qualities to look for in a window replacement contractor

Now that you’ve chosen a potential window replacement contractor, it’s time to drill down and have a real conversation about their products, processes, and procedures. The answers that they give will tell you a lot about what they do and how thorough their work is. 

Quality materials

When you hire a quality company for window replacement, you will not be forced to choose between quality and price. You will be given all the information about what kinds of windows you have and what their pros and cons are so that you can make an educated decision about what is the best option for you based on your unique needs, wants, and budget.  Even better, the right window replacement contractor should bring samples to your home so that you can review the quality and aesthetics of the recommended products and explain how different options can be combined to work best for your home.

Exceptional customer service

To be successful, a contractor must engage, give, and reciprocate the highest level of service. Each contact – both before and after installation – should be designed to put the customer’s needs on top priority.
