Your replacement windows are as good as the installers you chose to install them. Replacement windows can add value to your home; however, if you choose a contractor who is not qualified to do the job, your windows will not perform as they should. Choosing experienced installers is an important part of your window replacement project. Improper installation is more than just an eyesore - it can result to drafts, voided warranties, and damage your home. Before you start your window replacement project, check your installers to make sure your windows will be installed correctly the first time.
When looking at window installation Winnipeg, keep the following points in mind:
Installing the window is not easy. Since windows come in a variety of styles and sizes, there is no such thing as a "one size fits all" installation method. When choosing contractors, look at the company's experience with window replacement. Think how long the company has been in existence and what is the average experience of installers. The more experience the company has in replacing windows, the better.
General contractors are good at everyday projects. However, if you are replacing your windows, be sure to hire a professional who specializes in installing windows. When looking for companies, limit your search to companies that specialize in installing windows to avoid hiring someone who doesn't have the right skills.
Always take the time to check references when hiring a window installation company. Check out sites like Better Business Bureau or Angie's List to read reviews from previous customers. Make sure to research the quality and professionalism of the company to make sure that you are hiring a company that you can trust.
No window replacement or installation project is alike. Your installers should be trained to handle all projects, regardless of project size or window type. Make sure your installer is trained in the best installation methods and knows the latest installation methods.
Clear and detailed quote
Check that all the bids are complete and concise. What does the estimate cover? Has something been forgotten? Are there any hidden costs like waste disposal? If you don't understand something, let someone explain it to you. Also, inquire about the warranty to make sure your windows are free from possible defects.
Site preparation and cleaning
It may seem like common courtesy but some contractors might not clean up the mess after installation is done. A reputable windows and doors installer must want to protect your property and respect your wishes. Ask them how they protect the workplace, what they do with old windows, and how they clean up afterwards.
