Adding some nice new windows to your home can help make your entire home look better overall, but only if they’re installed correctly. When you have windows installed, you expect them to be installed correctly. However, the only way to ensure this is to work with an experienced and professional window contractor in Maryland. At Element Windows, we’ve been providing homes and businesses with our window installation and repair services for many years, and wanted to talk today about a few questions you should be sure to ask any window contractor before you sign on the dotted line.
Do You Have All Proper Licenses, and Are You Insured?
There’s a reason the law requires window contractors to be licensed. Many amateur window contractors have had their shoddy work fall apart over the years, and sometimes people can get hurt. It’s so important to make sure any window contractor you work with is licensed and insured. Doing so will protect you and your family from any mishaps in the future and against any defects in the installation.
Could I Receive an Itemized Receipt?
You don’t want to pay for anything that wasn’t used in the installation of your windows, but some companies will try to tack extra costs onto your bill. You can avoid these extra charges by asking for an itemized receipt. With an itemized receipt, you can be sure that you’re only paying for materials and services that you approved. Any professional window installation company should be able to provide you with an itemized receipt.
What Kind of a Warranty Is Your Work Backed By?
When you work with an experienced Maryland window installation company, you expect the work to last, but sometimes something happens, it’s important to make sure you’re covered if it does. Asking a window contractor what kind of warranty they offer as well as how long it lasts is a common question, and is one that a window contractor should be able to answer.
How Long Will the Project Take?
The installation of a window can be a loud process, and you’ll probably need to be clear of the area. For these reasons, you need to know how long the project will take. A window contractor should be able to give you an estimate on how long it will take them to install your windows and complete the project.
