Common Mistakes to Avoid When Hiring a Window Installation Contractor

Hiring any contractor to work on your home can be stressful if you’re doing it for the first time. After all, you’re taking a significant risk and putting your house into the hands of someone you may not know.

The hiring process can be even more stress-inducing if you’re seeking someone to help you find the perfect set of replacement windows. The experts at Weber Windows want to educate you on the finer points of avoiding these common mistakes when hiring a window installation contractor.

Don’t Make These Mistakes!

Hiring someone – anyone, even – to do work on your house is easy. Hiring the right person for your home is where people get into trouble. Avoid these mistakes.

1. Not Researching Credentials

When hiring a window installation contractor, thoroughly research their credentials, licenses, insurance coverage, and certifications.

2. Don’t Get Cheap

It can be easy to get sticker shock when price shopping among all the window contractors in your area. The cheapest is not always the best option for you. Evaluate the contractor's reputation, experience, and the quality of their past projects and pricing.

3. Not Checking References

The best way to check a contractor is to check their references. These are folks who have already dealt with the contractor and know what to expect regarding their craftsmanship and pricing.

4. Poor Communication

The only way for someone to know what you want is to communicate it. Effective communication between you and your contractor is like a marriage – they won’t know what to do unless you tell them!

5. A Flimsy Contract

Window installation requires a firm contract laying out the details, pricing, and warranty information. A job without a clear contract will not end well.
