In places where the risk of hurricanes and tropical storms is always at hand and building codes are strict, the windows and doors of your house must be installed properly to keep your house safe and secure while also appealing to the aesthetics. And for this, you need to hire the best contractor to get the job done right. So here are a few tips on hiring the best windows contractor-
- Check for Licensing and Insurance
Due to strict building codes and specific requirements in different states, one must always check the licensing of the contractors. It is an important legal requirement of the state and also gives a references in case there is a legal issue or complaint to be filed. Installing heavy windows and doors especially on upper floors can be risky and cause injury to workers, hence make sure that the contractor and the crew and fully covered for insurance otherwise you would be legally bound to pay for any injuries that occur on your property.
- Ask How Long They Have Been in Business
One of the most important factors to consider is the experience of the contractor. Ask them how long they have been in business. Companies working for a long time have a better knowledge of the area and the work and also have tie-ups with suppliers. Due to this, they can help you get through the process more smoothly and deliver the best results.
- Verify a Storefront and Physical Address
Make sure that you visit the office or company premises of the contractor before you finalise them for the job to ensure they are legitimate and trustworthy. If a company does not have a physical address, a landline or a store front, then you should not make the mistake of trusting them with your home and money.
- Gather References
A good list of references indicates a company’s goodwill and experience. The artistry and skill level of past installations can be checked reflected through them. You could also contact the previous customers ask them about their experience with working with that contractor and satisfaction with the work and clean-up after the job.
- Get it in Writing
A solid work contract reflects the work of a solid professional. A contract should include the breakdown of all the material and labour costs as well as satisfaction guarantees and warranties offered by the provider. This shows accountability and confidence in their own work.
