When you’re considering a Sunnyvale, CA windows replacement, you might think that your priority is choosing a top-quality brand and the right type of window. However, that is the priority after you choose your windows replacement company. The best window in the world will not be satisfactory if it’s not correctly measured and installed.
Therefore, there are several questions you should ask your windows replacement company before making a commitment to invest in a windows replacement.
The first question you should ask is how long the windows replacement company has been in business. The less time the company has been in business, the less amount of experience it has in windows replacement installations. Therefore, they’re more likely to run into problems they’ve never seen before, and it may take longer – if they are even able – to fix it properly. Peace of mind comes with experience, so you’ll want to choose an established windows replacement company. Their longevity comes from many consistently-happy customers, which is a very good endorsement.
Another question you should get answered is whether the windows replacement company is licensed and insured. Window replacement companies are by the state to get a license that gives you the assurance that they are in compliance with the current safety procedures and best practices. Insurance is critical because it puts the liability on the windows replacement company instead of you as the homeowner if a worker is injured while doing a windows replacement.
A third question you should ask a windows replacement company is what credentials it has and what major accomplishments the company has achieved. As is true with any company, only the best windows replacement companies win awards and are inducted into local and national industry and community business associations.
Another question you should get answered is what brands of windows replacements the company carries. A windows replacement company with a broad selection of brands gives you better choices to get the exact windows replacement you are looking for, so that there is no chance you’ll end up with buyer’s remorse.
Ask the windows replacement company if they have a showroom. While you can window shop – pun intended – for ideas about windows replacement, nothing can be substituted for walking into a showroom and seeing and touching the real deal. In a windows replacement showroom, you can look at the variety of window styles available, as well as the different types of windows that are on the market. You also have an experienced professional to talk with about the details of windows replacement.
The next question you should ask is whether the windows replacement company provides warranty service. On rare occasions, windows will have defects or there may be some other issue that needs to be addressed. The windows replacement company should fix these instead of offloading them to the windows manufacturer, which may be located across the country from you.
The seventh question you should ask is where you can find reviews or testimonials about the windows replacement company, since this can give you an idea what to expect from the company. Look at the company’s website, but also look at third-party websites like Angie’s List and Yelp. The windows replacement company should also be willing to provide you with a list of references that you can contact about their reputation and service.
