Window replacement is a big undertaking that requires proper preparation. To ensure a successful outcome for your project, here are a few questions you should ask your contractor before starting on the job.
Are There Any Hidden Fees?
It’s important to read the fine print in any agreement or contract, and a window replacement project is no exception to this rule. Installing a new window in your home may cost a significant amount, so it’s in your best interest to draft a detailed budget before diving in. To ensure the accuracy of your budget, you should ask your contractor if there are any hidden fees for potential services carried out during the project. Knowing about these hidden fees in advance also helps you identify additional issues with your property. Typically, hidden fees are only applied in cases wherein the contractor cannot determine the state of your windows before beginning the work. Rot within the frame is one example.
How Do I Operate My Windows?
To fully maximize your windows, be sure to ask your contractor how to operate the windows you are planning to install. As simple as they may look, they may require a specific method of operating, and you could inadvertently damage your windows if you go about this incorrectly. Also, be sure to ask your door and windows replacement expert for tips on how to properly clean and maintain your windows.
Can I Request a Virtual Consultation?
Due to Covid-19, a virtual consultation is more practical and safe for both parties. Be sure to ask your contractor if you can have a virtual consultation. At Renewal by Andersen® of Cape Cod, we have all the proper social distancing and sanitation protocols in place. It’s more convenient to have a virtual consultation as it’s contact-free while still providing the same quality of service as if we were there physically.
Once the installation day comes, Renewal by Andersen contractors follow strict sanitation guidelines while all of our vehicles carry waterless soap, hand sanitizer and disinfectants to ensure that everyone involved in the job takes the necessary precautions. We mostly work in teams of two to follow social distancing protocols and we’ll thoroughly disinfect the area after the job is done.
