Replacing a window involves more than simply calling up a window installation company and setting up a visit. Unless you want some poor-quality, haphazard end-result, you want to approach this with as much information and preparation as possible. This means taking the time to carefully plan out the details with your contractor during the initial consultation.
So, what are the important questions that you need to ask our window and door contractor? Here are a few ideas.
Discuss Different Window Types
To some people, a window is a window. Whatever type, style or brand you choose, it will still work the same way. Then, the moment your new vinyl window replacement is installed, you realize there are a few quirks in its operation that doesn’t really do it for you. The only way to really make the most out of your windows is to make sure that you’re getting what you truly need, and discussing this with your contractor is a good way to do just this.
Discuss Design Options
While it’s important to get useful windows, some experts might argue it’s equally important to get ones that look good or, at least, fit your current architectural style. Ask your contractor about design recommendations so your new windows don’t clash with the rest of your home.
Discuss Product Specifics
Lastly, don’t forget to ask your representative about any warranty information, installation procedures and other important details. You’ll also want to make sure that all the features you’re looking for are in the product that they’re about to install. If you asked for energy-efficient windows, then make sure it has all the standard features like low-E coating and double-pane glazing as well as North American Fenestration Standard (NAFS) ratings and certification.
