1. What is the process when replacing windows?

It is important to have a complete understanding of the installation process with every company you may be considering. This will give you an idea about the company’s process, how long the job will take, where do they start and other important details you want to know about.

2.  Is the window installer licensed, insured and bonded?

This includes if the installer has personal liability, property damage insurance, and worker’s compensation insurance. A licensed window installer is much better because they have made an investment in themselves and care about their profession.

3. Who is going to be installing the windows?

Will subcontractors or employees be installing the windows? How long have the installers been working for the company?  It is important to know this information so you know how the potential installer may be in your home and how they may treat your window installation job.

4. Will my window installation project requires a permit from my city or village?

If so, will you obtain it or will I need to? Window installation is a home improvement and more than likely will require a permit. If your window installer says you don’t need one, it may be a good idea to call your village hall and ask someone to verify it to avoid any potential fines.

Asking questions about any fees like obtaining a permit will help you have an understanding of what may be in the estimate, and if you will be liable for anything else before the project is started.

5. What if there is a problem with the installation?

If there are any questions or concerns, it is good to know who to call for any questions or any issues.  Hopefully, there will not be any issues at the time of installation, but if there is you want to know you can call someone right away.
