When you undertaking a large project such as replacing your windows, it’s worth considering exactly when the best time to do it will be. Although the weather worldwide can be temperamental, your best choice would be to choose late spring or early fall. Having moderate temperatures is essential when the windows on your home are being removed sometimes even overnight. If you live in a climate zone or a latitude that provides year-round good weather, you won’t have to worry about this issue before starting.
The best value will cost more in the beginning, and that is getting triple pane windows for their insulation qualities. What part of the country you live in will help to determine what level of energy-efficient window you must have. The durability of the windows, or the appearance, can be the main focal point, when you live in a mild climate. The easiest way to find the right company to do your work is to know someone, but if you don’t, then get several estimates before choosing.
Replacing windows is a good job to hire someone else, so you should know what you need to ask them. Many companies aren’t above doing underhanded things to get a job, such as replacing windows, so don’t jump to taking a bid without checking it out first.
When you get an estimate, make sure that you get everything down in writing just what the bid includes. Always check estimates over so you know what you are being charged for, and won’t have any surprise charges pop up later. To protect the job you are paying for, make sure that you have a written down warranty. Reputation is the reason for you to hire someone, because they will want to have everything written down to protect both sides.
Whether you’re buying replacement windows from a home improvement store, or dealing with a local contractor, make sure that you understand the warranty that comes with the windows and/or work. It’s important to know exactly what the warranty does and doesn’t cover, and naturally for what time period. In some cases, the warranty may be lifetime, and may even be transferable if you sell the house; this would be a good selling point to a prospective buyer. Whether you’re dealing with a window manufacturer, home improvement store or a contractor, don’t sign on the dotted line until you’re confident with the warranty you’re getting.
