What Does a Good Window Replacement Contract Look Like?

In order for your window replacement project to be successful, it needs to be backed by a solid contract. Not understanding, or worse, not even going over your window replacement contract before handing over your check can lead to many problems down the road. It doesn’t matter if you are replacing simple casement windows or more elaborate bay and bow windows, making sure that your investment is well-protected during and after installation is something that you should definitely do. Here’s what you should look for. 

  • A Brief Overview. This section reflects the scope of your replacement project including the expected outcome.

  • Schedule. This shows you the timeline of the entire installation project as well as the expected date of completion.

  • Payment Terms. This is where the payment schedule and terms are indicated. It also includes the amount you are required to pay as a downpayment.

  • License and Proof of Liability. This portion of the contract includes your contractor’s license to install replacement windows as well as their liability insurance.

  • Warranties. Any good replacement window should be backed by a strong warranty and there should be a portion in your contract describing the coverage.

  • Termination Clause. Of course, nobody wants to end things midway through a window installation project. However, if things go badly with your contractor, this portion lists down acceptable reasons why either you or your contractor can end the project before it is completed.
