When installing replacement windows in your home, the best move you can do is hire a professional to do the job. That way, you can avoid any mistakes that can cost a significant amount to fix. However, when you’re hiring a contractor, you shouldn’t just hire the first one you find. Instead, you should make it a point to ask your potentials a few questions during the window consultation, such as:
What Exterior and Interior Finishes Do You Offer?
Your windows can affect the interior and exterior aesthetics of your home. So, you’ll want to pick one that looks good on your home. To accomplish this, make it a point to ask your potential contractors what exterior and interior finishes they offer so you can choose a window that blends well with the rest of the house. If you’re having a hard time deciding the best finishes, meanwhile, you can also ask them for their advice and assistance in choosing.
What Are Your Payment Terms?
During the window consultation, you should also ask contractors what their payment terms are. Do they need up-front payment? Will they only accept payment after the project’s completion? Or, do they need a down payment and will return for the rest after the new windows have been installed? By asking them this question, you can adjust your finances accordingly and create a budget to accommodate the project.
Are There Any Hidden Fees?
Finally, you should also ask them if there are any hidden fees attached to the project. This is because you should be aware of all the fees that you need to pay for in the beginning. If there are any hidden fees, it’s vital that you find out even more as you need to know what products and services your money is going to cover.
