When you’re having your windows replaced, it’s vital that you pick the right person for the job. After all, a window replacement is a significant investment. To accomplish this, you need to ask your contractor a few questions. Apart from helping you determine if they’re the right contractor for you, the questions can also help you gather more information about the project itself and help you plan ahead for the days to come.
Here are the questions you should ask your window installation contractor:
Are You Licensed and Insured?
This is the most important question you need to ask your contractor as depending on where you live, a license may be required before your contractor can perform any remodeling tasks. This is because the licenses give you protection should a problem arise. As for insurance, on the other hand, they free you from any responsibility should your contractor be injured on the job.
Will the Project Require a Permit?
Again, the answer to his question depends on where you live. Thankfully, if you hire a local contractor, they’ll immediately know if a permit is required and will even acquire it for you for a small fee included in your overall bill.
How Long Will the Project Take?
Be sure to ask your contractor this question before you decide how many windows you want replaced. If you hire a good installation crew, they can install ten 3×5 foot replacement windows in a day. However, depending on the amount of windows you’re replacing, the project may take more than a day. By asking this question, you can adequately prepare for the days to come.

Is Your Work Certified or Factory-Authorized?
Contractors may be certified by various entities and there’s no doubt they can get the job done but according to pros, hiring a factory-authorized installer is better since they’re trained to install a specific product.
What Warranties Will I Receive?
Ask the contractor what kind of warranty you’ll receive. If you can, find a contractor who can offer a 20 year warranty on the glass and a 10 year warranty for any other component. If you have plans to sell in the near future, ask if the warranty is transferable as well.
What Services Do You Provide?
Apart from installing your windows, make sure to ask your contractor if they offer other kinds of services such as the removal of the old window, debris disposal, and protection for your home and landscaping. That way, you can determine if the contractor really is the right person for you.
