While it’s important to do your own research when it comes to replacing windows, you should also make sure to ask a contractor regarding your own project. There may be certain questions that are best answered by an expert, especially if you have a unique situation or specific needs that you want to be addressed.
To help start the ball rolling, here are a few questions that you should ask during your consultation with a window professional.
“How Do the Windows Operate?”
It’s important to have a good understanding of the windows that you plan on getting. That’s why you should ask the contractor how certain window styles operate and where they are often ideally placed. Different types of windows can serve varying purposes, so make sure to let them know about the purpose of the windows that will be installed. For example, if a window will be installed in an area where access is difficult or tricky, they might recommend sliding windows since opening these windows is easy and convenient even in hard-to-reach spots.
“What Interior and Exterior Finishes Would Suit My Windows?”
Make sure that the window company can provide the right exterior and interior finishes to maintain the harmony and consistency of your home’s design. Furthermore, windows should also have the correct finishes in order to achieve optimal performance. If you’re unsure about the finishes that suit your needs, don’t hesitate to inquire.
“What Measures Do You Have in Place to Ensure Everyone’s Safety During the Project?”
Compare their safety protocols to CDC recommendations and best practices. If anything does not satisfy your expectations for health and safety measures, make sure to bring it up during your consultation. For example, if you are more comfortable with virtual updates throughout the project, ask the contractor how they can ensure you will receive such updates on time.
