Ask Your Window Contractor These Important Questions

If you’re thinking of replacing your windows, know that it can be a big project that should be done professionally. As a leading contractor for vinyl replacement windows, we’re sharing some important questions you need to ask to your windows installer.

Ask Your Window Contractor These Important Questions


1. Can I Have a Written Estimate?

With a written and itemized estimate, you can see what kind of expenses are going into your project. This should happen after your windows contractor has done a thorough inspection of your home’s windows. The estimate should include parts, labor and other materials used, even during cleanup. This breakdown of expenses should be agreed upon in writing to avoid any misunderstandings later on.


2. How Long Will the Project Take? 

You need to clarify this with your hired window replacement contractor so you won’t get too worried if the replacement project seems like it’s not going to finish on time. Depending on the number of windows needed to be replaced as well as the schedule of your hired contractor, it may take some time before your replacement project is completed. For instance, if you hire our services for replacement windows, we usually give a general timeline of how and when it will be done so you’ll have some peace of mind that your project is being prioritized.

3. Are Your Licensed and Certified?

This is a very important question to ask any window replacement contractor you hire to do work in replacing your home’s windows. The fact is many states require such licenses and certifications, and hiring a professionally licensed installer can give you some protection as well when issues arise later on. Along with licenses and certifications, you should also ask if your contractor has insurance on property damage, liability, as well as worker’s compensation. This not only protects you but the contractor as well.


4. What Kind of Warranty Will I Receive?

No matter how well your windows were installed, you’ll never know whether issues will arise weeks or months later. Ask your contractor about the warranty policy of your new windows, and make sure you get it in writing. This will come in handy just in case. Also, don’t forget to ask for your contractor’s contact information so they can be at a call’s notice when something happens to your windows.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
