In Seattle, there are many windows and siding contractors, window replacement contractors and home improvement contractors. Each of these companies offers a different variety of services including window installation and repair, siding repairs, window painting, window tinting, and many other types of services as well. If you want to find the best window and siding contractors near me, here is how to find them.
I first ask for references. This is very important. You should not hire the first company that you find in the phone book or that someone recommends to you. Find out what their business practices are and how long they have been in business. Ask if they are licensed, bonded and insured and call their references to find out what they think about their work.
I also look for recommendations from friends and family. Ask their opinion about the window company you are considering hiring. What kind of work is performed? Are the worker’s trustworthy? When was the last time the window replacement or other service was completed successfully?
Another good source of information is online reviews. There are several window companies on the Internet with reviews from prior customers posted. Read the reviews carefully and take note of the positive as well as the negative feedback. Negative reviews should be avoided at all costs. You want to hire a window company that has happy past experiences so you will avoid having problems with them in the future.
Visit the window company in person to meet the owners or employees. If possible, see the office where the window installation or other service will take place. This gives you the opportunity to discuss the work in person with the window company representatives. If the window company operates out of your home, ask for a tour of your home. This is an excellent opportunity to review the services offered by the window company. Get a feel of how professional the employees are, how the job is done, and how satisfied their customers are.
If the window company is operating out of your home, inquire about the window replacement guarantee. Find out if they stand behind the quality of their work once the window replacement service is complete. Nothing ruins a service more than poor workmanship or shoddy products.
Once you have narrowed down the window installation options to two or three window companies, call each to schedule an appointment. Meet with the employees in the company offices. It’s important to ask questions about their customer service, the quality of the window materials, and whether or not the window installation service guarantees the job. Inquire about the window replacement guarantee and what it entails. The window company should have a written guarantee that they offer to customers. The guarantee should include specific details about the window replacement process including the date and time the window is due to be replaced.
You may want to bring in a friend or family member to help make the appointment. That person can also provide information about the window installation company. When the window company makes its appointment, it will provide you with an estimated time for completion. If the window company provides an estimate with a deadline, you can get an idea of the quality of work to be expected from the window company.
A good window company is going to replace your window at an undetermined cost. It is important to ask the window company about the window replacement guarantee. If the window installation company doesn’t offer a guarantee, it is probably because they have not completed the window installation process to your satisfaction. If a window company guarantees your satisfaction, the window installation process has been completed and you’re free and clear.
The new windows and doors Seattle will usually provide an estimate price, which is a rough figure telling you how much the entire window replacement project is going to cost. It’s best to get estimates from at least three window companies. You want to compare the costs of different window companies before deciding on one. It’s also important to get estimates from a window company that offers a guarantee.
When you choose a window installation professional, it is always a good idea to check out several window contractors before making a final decision. Ask friends and family for recommendations, and read reviews online. Find out the window company’s reputation for completing the job in a timely manner and the window installation methods that they use. No matter what you decide on, hiring a window installation company can be a great investment.
