Unless you plan on swinging a hammer on your window replacement project, you have to pick a contractor to do your project.

So, no pressure now – your choice of a replacement windows contractor will determine the success or failure of your project. It can be tough to do – especially if you have not done any construction or building of you own. In other words, you have no frame of reference.

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.

We believe homeowners deserve great value with their window replacement or any other roofing, siding or remodeling project. Selecting the best, most reliable replacement windows contractor can save you thousands on the front end – and thousands after the project is complete. Avoiding scams and window replacement contractors who just “don’t fit” can be the most important aspect of the process. Continue reading
