What You Need to Know About Hiring a Window Contractor

Window replacement is an exciting endeavor, but it requires you to do your due diligence to ensure its success. To get the most  value for your money in this home improvement, you’ll want to work with the right contractor for the job. Today’s blog post outlines what you should look for in a window installer and questions to ask a prospect before making the decision of hiring them.


A reputable window replacement contractor should be able to provide proof of licensing and insurance. These credentials are a crucial indicator of their legitimacy as a business. Licenses provided by the local government means they are eligible to do business in the state, city or county. Insurance coverage protects you from being held liable in case of accidental injury or property damage that might occur while they are working in your home.

A reliable window replacement contractor should also be certified to install casement and double-hung windows from the top brands in the industry. If they do have certifications, it means that their installation team has extensive knowledge and skills, and undergoes continuous training to ensure top-notch workmanship in every window project it handles.

You know a prospective window contractor is qualified by also looking at online reviews from their previous customers. The list of references they’ll provide also helps in determining whether the installer is a good fit for your needs. The information from the references will give you an idea of what to expect from the contractor when working with them.

Questions to Ask 

When you choose a window replacement contractor, ask them questions about the type of windows they install and the estimated cost. Ask for details about their warranty and determine how long it will take them to complete your project.

Can they provide referrals from previous customers, so you can see some of their work and talk to other clients using their services? A good contractor should be willing to answer all of these questions before finalizing an agreement.
