Top Questions to Ask Your Window Installer

Hiring the right window installer is an important decision in the window replacement process. Much like other industries, the window installation community is full of shady salesmen solely focused on making as much money as possible instead of focusing on the needs of the customer and the quality of their work. The search for the right window installer should include asking certain questions to ascertain whether or not the installer has the experience needed to complete the project efficiently and professionally.

A professional and reputable installer will not scoff at the idea of answering your questions. It is part of the process between the customer and the installer, and any competent installer should understand that the customer will have questions. Ask your questions, including the suggested questions below, and don’t settle for an installer who refuses to take the time to answer them.

Do You Have Examples of Past Work?

Experienced window installers will be able to present examples of their past work. Being able to examine completed versions of past projects allows homeowners to survey the installer’s capabilities and confirm they can handle the homeowner’s needs. Should an installer refuse or be unable to provide examples of past work, this should be a red flag alerting you that this installer may not be the right person for your window replacement. Reputable window installers will also have an online presence that will help you to gain an understanding of their professionalism and the quality of their work, primarily through company reviews.

Who Will Be Doing the Installation?

As a homeowner spending substantial funds to replace windows in your home, it is not unreasonable to ask the installer who will be doing the actual installation. First, you welcome strangers into your home to complete work that requires precision. Second, while you understand it takes time to install the windows, you want to ensure the company has enough installers available to manage your project in a timely manner. Of course, the number of installers needed for the job will depend on the actual scope of the project. If only a few windows are being installed, a limited number of installers may be required. However, for larger projects involving numerous windows and multiple stories, it is not unreasonable to expect the installation company to provide a larger installation crew.

How Will You Protect My Home During Installation?

Communication is the key! Depending on the work being completed, the installation process may require access to not only the exterior of the home but also the interior. It is not unreasonable for a homeowner to inquire as to how the installation company will ensure the home and its belongings are not damaged during the installation process. While homeowners may choose to remove window treatments and decorations and move belongings stored near windows, many installers will work with the homeowner to ensure belongings are covered and protected from installation debris. Working with the installer to create a plan for proper access to the windows without harming the family’s belongings will ensure no damage occurs.
