When it comes to replacing the windows in your home, there are a few factors you will want to keep in mind. In this article, I will discuss some questions you should consider asking your replacement window contractor.

Ask the Replacement Window Contractor for References

Ask the replacement window company if they can provide some references around your area of previous customers. Then call those references and tell them you are considering hiring so and so replacement window contractor and ask if they did a good job. You may even be able to look at the windows from the street. Look, it depends where you live, and yes, sure some people might call the cops. But there is no better way to get a feel for your replacement window contractor than by seeing them and speaking with their previous customers! 

Ask the Replacement Window Contractor to Tell You About the Windows

Ask if they can tell you a little bit about the windows they are recommending that you buy. It’s super important that your replacement window contractor knows about the windows they want to sell you. I am not going to go as far as to say they have been to the factory where the windows are manufactured, but I am not saying if they have, I’d be mad. It is very common for manufacturers to solicit contractors to come to their factories and see the process and quality in which goes into the products these manufacturers want the contractors to sell. The point is that you want to work with a replacement window contractor who knows the product thoroughly to be sure that it is the right contractor for your home. 

Now, these two questions are worth a lot more than just two simple answers; the answers to each one of these questions will help you learn a tremendous amount about any replacement window contractor. If you get the first question answered, you will learn all about how good the contractor’s work is. You will probably hear about any issues that they may have had and how they handle problems that arise. You will also learn whether or not they are easy to work with. 

If a contractor knows a lot about a manufacturer of a window that they want to sell you and if you even hint at being interested in them telling you more about it, oh boy, they may not stop talking about it! This may be super annoying after a while, but it’s a good thing because you will learn all about what makes these windows unique and what you are paying for.
