When you need new sliding, casement or double hung windows for your home, one of the first things to do is to find a contractor. Obtaining estimates and scheduling consultations will help you determine who is the best company to do the job. Make sure that you are ready to ask questions that will help you get to know the company and the products the companies are offering.
Make sure to ask these questions during your window replacement consultation.
Are There Hidden Fees?
Before signing a contract, make sure you ask about hidden fees and the purpose of these expenses. Usually, hidden charges are only applicable during extreme scenarios where the consultant can’t determine the condition of the windows. Most times, hidden fees apply to bay and bow windows where wooden components need to be replaced. It is also a good idea to ask about fees involving re-installation of shutters, blinds and other window treatments.
Can You Please Explain How Your Windows Operate?
Understanding how different window types operate can help you determine which one is ideal for your home and needs. Keep in mind that not all windows are made the same. For instance, a sliding window is better for aging individuals or people with limited mobility. If you want to improve your home’s ventilation, consider operable styles, such as casements and double-hung windows.
What Are My Options for Interior and Exterior Finishes?
The right window colors will boost your home’s curb appeal and overall value. Make sure to choose replacement windows that go well with the existing color palette of your interior and exterior. Ask your contractor what exterior and interior finishes they offer. A reliable contractor will suggest which ones are ideal for your home’s architectural style.
