Before buying replacement windows, it’s important to vet the company thoroughly. A good window company will produce quality work that will last through the service life of your windows. Identifying the best installers can be a challenge. Below are five questions you can ask installers when you’re trying to decide who to hire.
#1. Do You Have References?
Any window company that has been in business for several years and who has a history of doing good work should be able to produce a list of references from previous jobs. Even newer companies should have experience in the industry and should be able to refer you to someone who can vouch for their workmanship, skill and commitment to their customers.
#2. Do You Warranty Your Work?
An window company that won’t warranty its work is a company that has no confidence in their abilities or product. Most windows do offer a warranty, but not all warranties are the same. Find out how long the warranty lasts, and what exactly is covered. If your installer and window manufacturer are two separate companies, then you may need to read two separate warranties and figure out who covers what.
Renewal by Andersen of Long Island is your one-stop-shop for window product and installation. Our warranty covers our products and our installation. Our windows are backed by one of the nation’s best warranty coverage, and our warranties are fully transferrable.
#3. When Will the Windows Be Installed?
A good window installer may be busy. Expect to wait a little while for your installer to become available, it only means that you’ve chosen to hire a business in high demand.
#4. How Long Does Installation Take?
Your installer should be able to provide you with a timeline, including a start and end date. Ask your installer if this installation timeline takes into account events like poor weather or unexpected challenges on the job site.
#5. What Material Are the Windows Made From?
Vinyl windows are very popular and common, but they warp easily and can develop issues. Wooden windows can be expensive and require regular maintenance. At Renewal by Andersen of Long Island, our window frames are made from a unique composite material called Fibrex, made from reclaimed wood and thermoplastic polymer. Our windows are stronger, long-lived, maintenance-free and beautiful.
