How to Choose a Window Installer

Written on: August 8th, 2014 BY IN Windows

Are you in the market for new windows? Replacing windows in your home is a significant investment, and one of the most important aspects of window replacement is the initial installation. Therefore, it’s essential that you choose the best installers!

But how do you know which window company to choose? The Indianapolis area has many companies, so it’s important that you do your research and know what to look for. It can make all the difference, helping ensure quality installation from reliable installers.

Time to Research

When it comes time for you to do the research to find a good company, you’ll probably either ask friends and neighbors or go straight for your computer and the good old World Wide Web. Ideally, you should do both. Talking to people and using the internet are both ways to find reputable companies in your area.

If you’re researching online, be sure to check sites to confirm a company’s legitimacy and reputation, such as the Better Business Bureau, Yelp, Angie’s List, etc.

What to Look for in Window Companies

Once you have a few companies in mind (try to have at least three potentials), you should ask them questions to get a better understanding of how they do business—and to ensure they have the proper licensing, insurance, etc.

Remember, price is the last thing you should focus on. If you hire a company based on low costs, you’ll probably get what you pay for. Higher quality may cost you a bit more on the front end, but it saves you more in the long run!

Be sure to ask things like:

  • Can I see proof of licenses and insurance?
  • Do you offer any warranties or guarantees?
  • Do you have industry credentials? What are they?
  • Can you provide me with at least three references I can contact?
  • Can I see past work you have done?
  • Do you have a showroom?
  • How long have you been in the window replacement business?
