Your involvement in the window replacement process is critical. To give you an idea of what to expect from your contractor and the project itself, here are some questions you should ask during a consultation.
Are There Hidden Fees?
Before signing anything, make sure to ask for a written estimate and inquire if there are any hidden fees. Doing so will help you avoid being caught off guard by the costs of your project. This will also protect you against unreasonable increases to your total bill.
What Exterior and Interior Finishes Do You Offer?
You must select an interior and exterior finish that complements the rest of your home. The installation method determines the best type of finish for your windows. Full-frame window replacements typically come with finishes. But if your contractor will do a retrofit installation, they should be able to assist you in choosing the right finish.
How Long Will the Project Take?
The success of your window project depends on careful planning. Ensure your window contractor understands the entire procedure and can tell you how long the job will take. Find out if they can install all new windows simultaneously or if the installations will be done in stages over multiple days.
Can You Discuss the Actual Process?
If you are planning your window replacement along with other home improvements, make sure to plan the timeline and observe the proper order of the tasks. For example, if you’re replacing the windows and doors for a bathroom or kitchen renovation, you should complete the installation of the windows and doors before finishing the bathroom or kitchen remodel.
