4 Tips to Help Choose the Right Contractors for Residential Windows Replacement

Residential windows replacement is a big investment, and homeowners should be cautious when hiring glass contractors. Begin with a solid plan for what you want to achieve, and spend a little time looking into the glass company’s reputation and job quality. Try to make sure you have the right team on your side before you hire. 

1. Prepare Before Hiring 

It is a good idea to know what you want to accomplish with residential windows replacement before you begin looking for contractors. Among the options available are custom window shapes, frame materials, type of glass, and whether or not you want to install laminates to reduce sun exposure and block UV light. You can even replace your doors with appealing glass entryways. The more you can express your goals, the easier it will be to match a contractor to your project.

2. Verify Credentials

In California, contractors are required by law to be licensed and insured. Contractors who seem reluctant to provide you with a contractor’s license number or verifiable liability insurance should be avoided because they may lead to serious consequences if anything goes wrong during the project. Most qualified contractors will offer that sort of information at the outset, and you are also encouraged to look the company up with the Better Business Bureau.

3. Read Reviews

Check for reviews on popular websites that were submitted by previous customers. If they have one available, check the contractor’s website for customer reviews and testimonials that can give you some insight into what you can expect when the work begins. Keep in mind that third-party reviews seldom have a middle ground, and many negative reviews should be taken with a grain of salt, owing to projects that weren’t initially planned out or even fake reviews by competitors. 

4. Meet the Contractors

Once you have chosen a potential glass contractor, schedule an estimator to come by and give you a price for the work. You will also be asked about various frame and window preferences. This is also your opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the contractor, how they will handle your project, and more. This is the final step in hiring a residential windows contractor and if you aren’t comfortable with your choice you still have the option of continuing your search.

A well-established glass contractor will have the staffing and experience to take care of residential glass replacement in a timely manner. And contractors that specialize in glass replacement and installation offer customization options that are not available through big box store offerings. With a little research, you will hire a glass installation company that makes your home shine when the job is complete.
