The quality of installation is an important factor that contributes to long-term window performance, which is why it’s important to make sure that you find a great replacement window contractor. To get you started on your search, Renewal by Andersen® of Cape Cod shares the qualifications you should look for in a replacement window contractor.
License and insurance. Contractors are required in most states, counties or cities to register for a license. In Cape Cod, replacement window contractors are required to register with the Massachusetts Secretary of State, and one of its requirements include a certificate of insurance. It should be a simple matter for a prospective contractor to produce a verifiable copy of their license and proof of insurance, which should include coverage for workers’ compensation and general liability insurance.
Selection of window options. A replacement window contractor that offers a limited selection of replacement windows can, in turn, limit how you can improve your home. A replacement window contractor that offers a wide selection of window options — better yet, one that can build custom replacement windows — will provide greater flexibility on your project.
Installation warranty. The window installation or workmanship warranty is your guarantee that problems caused by installation errors will be corrected at no additional cost. Some contractors provide a quality guarantee, while some manufacturers include it as part of a comprehensive set of limited warranties. Ask a prospective contractor for the terms and conditions before you commit to a contract.
Experience and reputation. You can benefit from a window replacement contractor with years of experience and a good local reputation. In addition to the assurance of good service, they can also provide insight on which window options are best for your home, as well as making sure that the project stays on track from beginning to end. This is why it’s important to ask for references — after all, past customers provide the most reliable feedback.
