A Basic Guide to Finding the Right Window Contractor

With so many contractors offering window replacement services, the sheer amount of options can overwhelm the average owner. That’s why it’s important to have the right contractor at your side to assist you with selecting the right windows for your home.

A Basic Guide To Finding The Right Window Contractor

Local Contractors Only

The first thing you need to do is narrow down your list of options by sticking to local contractors only. This is because local contractors have a physical address that you can visit if you need to discuss details about your window replacement project. Local contractors are also aware of local building codes and the climate so they can recommend options that will best suit your needs.

Look for Licensed and Certified Contractors

While contractors can have varying levels of skill, they must still have a minimum level of competence necessary to install your new windows properly and according to manufacturer’s specifications. One of the best ways to ensure that is to check each contractor for the necessary paperwork. You’d want to look for a contractor license certification from the manufacturer of your chosen window brand.

Consider Client Reviews

If you want to get an idea of how good (or bad) a window contractor’s work is, you can always look for feedback from previous clients. Since they are local contractors, there’s a good chance a neighbor or a friend has already worked with those contractors, and they can tell you about their own experience as fellow homeowners.

Choose Reasonable Prices

Window replacement will always cost a significant amount of money so you need to find out which contractor will give you the best offers. You shouldn’t go for the cheapest quotes to avoid sacrificing quality. Pick a contractor that offers a reasonable price to get a good balance of quality and cost efficiency.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
