Hiring a Replacement Window Pro

Questions You Should Consider About Your Windows Contractor:

  • Are they licensed by the state where you'd like the work to be done?
  • Do they carry the proper liability insurance?
  • Do they have reliable references?
    • Speak to the references, ask how their project went, drive by their home to see the work if possible
  • Can your contractor deliver services desired in the budget you need?
  • How long have they been in business?
  • How many similar projects have they completed in the last year?
  • Can they complete your project in the time required?
  • How much of the work will be subcontracted out and are their subcontractors licensed and insured?
  • Check them out with the Better Business Bureau

The Contract

It is important to carefully read the contract your replacement windows contractor has drafted for you.  Make sure that it clearly spells out all the details of the work you'd like to have done.  It should include a list of the materials required as well as all aspects of the job itself.  Look for a release-of-lien clause in the contract.  If a contractor does not pay for materials purchased for your home once the job is complete, it is possible that a lien could be placed on your home.  Adding this clause to the contract can help avoid this problem.

Make Sure You Feel Comfortable With the Windows Contractor You Choose

Remember that depending on the scope of the project you require, the contractor and his crew will be in your life and your home for the time it takes to complete the project.  For this reason, it is important to trust your contractor.  Ask him how long the project will take so that you can plan your schedule accordingly.

Arranging Payment

If a contractor demands all of the money for the project up front, do not work with them.  Avoid paying them in cash so that you have a clear record of your payment should any problems arise.  Make sure your contractor has a proper business address and that they are not just working out of the back of their truck.
