Selecting the right contractor for your window installation is critical. Your choice can mean the difference between a successful project and a disaster.
To help make things easier for you, we came up with a checklist that will serve as your guide in choosing and hiring the right contractor for your project.
Finding a Reliable Contractor
Start the selection process by obtaining recommendations from trusted sources like friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers, as well as contact your local Better Business Bureau (BBB). To determine the best professional fit for your project, review each candidate’s website to see what services they offer and whether they appear professional. Visit their profiles on the BBB website and read reviews from their past customers.
Vetting Potential Contractors
This part of the selection process is where you put your hiring manager “hat” on. It is the part where you ask the contractors crucial questions such as:
- How long have you been in business?
- Do you carry insurance for personal liability, worker’s compensation and property damage coverage?
- Can you provide me with references?
- Will the project require securing permits?
This can be done over the phone. This is also the time to learn about their window offerings like double-hung, casement and picture windows. From there, you can narrow down your prospects based on the information you’ve obtained.
Meeting With Your Top Choices
This phase of the selection process allows you to confirm each contractor’s technical experience. During your in-person meeting, be sure to ask questions related to your project. Find out who will obtain permits and purchase the materials. Who will clean up after the project and dispose of the old window units? See to it that you get a fixed price before you sign the contract.
