The first thing you should consider when replacing windows is whether you only need to replace the windows or the frames as well. The cost of the project, and the time involved will be much less, if only the glass needs to be replaced. As far as jobs go, it will be relatively simple, when you only have to take the old glass, and put in new.
Unless you really know what you’re doing, the safest route is to hire a reputable contractor or window replacement company to handle this project. Windows and the surrounding areas can be easily damaged, and if you make a mistake, it can turn out to be more expensive rather than cheaper to have done the work yourself. Before deciding to DIY, you also have to make sure you can spare the time necessary to get the materials and do the work. Choosing the right company or contractor, on the other hand, presents a different set of challenges. You should look for a contractor who will give you a free consultation and estimate. Word of mouth is always a good way to find quality help, so you should ask everyone you know to recommend a contractor who’s reasonable and does quality work. If you can’t get a personal recommendation, try to find a contractor who has some positive customer reviews online -with local Google searches, this shouldn’t be hard to find.
Don’t jump into anything too quickly, because aggressive salespeople will sometimes try anything to get a sale. Make sure that you have at least three estimates before deciding, so that you won’t be talked into anything without having time to think and compare. Remember that you are in charge, and that the decision is yours. When you have several estimates you will be able to think things through, and make the best conclusion. A bunch of bids is for comparing prices, but the determining factor should come down to the reputation of the company.
Depending on how long you have lived in your house, one of the best upgrades you can do is to replace the windows. By now you should realize that changing your windows is something that you need to carefully consider before you get started. A lot of guys think they can save a lot of money by doing a remodel job on their own, but usually having the right professional do the job will save you money in the long run, and give you a better job.
