Before you do anything, make sure you start this project at the right time of year. Beginning in late fall is a great time because typically the weather is dry and the climate is relatively warm. While windows are being replaced, your home will be open to heat, cold and rain, so it’s best to do this during the mildest possible time. These considerations will only pertain to those that live at very high altitudes or where the weather is known to constantly change.

A reputable company won’t try to sneak things by you, so make sure that you get estimates from companies with an honest reputation. Anytime you hire someone for a job, there is the possibility of misunderstanding, so don’t sign anything until you know exactly what you are getting. To protect the job you are paying for, make sure that you have a written down warranty. An honest company will do what they say, even without having anything written down.
