Be sure to avoid replacement windows contractors that don’t have your best interests at heart

A Windows replacement project will bring all types of contractor’s to your door.

We all want to assume the best about people we deal with. However, with replacement windows, the combination of quick turnaround and high dollar value sometimes invites those looking to make a quick profit. The challenge with selecting window replacement companies in this situation is eliminating the two most problematic kind of contractors from your process as soon as possible –

  • The low-ball artist who may or may not be in existence in a year to perform any service work or warranty work needed. They usually have low overhead (a pick-up truck and a hammer) and no real track record. The quality of the workmanship may be questionable as well.

Avoiding scams and window replacement contractors who just “don’t fit” can be the most important aspect of the process. Continue reading
