How do you know that the companies are reputable and reliable?

Hiring the right window replacement contractor is just as important as the actual replacement windows themselves! We install the following types of windows:
Here's how to make sure your replacement windows installation goes as smoothly as possible:
Every home is different and for that reason, no two window replacement projects are alike. It's a good idea to research different window installation options since many window installers are familiar with only a few types of windows. For example, if you want to install energy-efficient windows, your windows contractor may recommend a PVC or fiberglass window. But even among those options you have different levels of window efficiency in terms of letting in air and sunlight.
Understanding not just the type of window you want, but the type of materials you choose for it will have a lasting impact on the quality of your window installation, and is just as important as hiring your replacement window installer! Beyond the windows themselves, it's important that when receiving quotes from your windows contractors, that you be ready to ask them important questions, many of which we've detailed for you below.
Window replacement bids should be more than just a price. The best window replacement quotes should include the types of materials and products being used as well as whether or not materials and labor are included in the price. The right bid also includes a start and end date. In short, the more specific the bid, the better.
You should also ask that the bid include payment terms. Never agree to pay the full amount up front, no matter how good of a deal it looks like. Generally speaking, most windows contractors will ask for 20-30% up front and the rest paid along the way or immediately once the job is done to your satisfaction.
One of the most important things to consider during your window installation is what happens if something goes wrong years down the road. Be sure that you're covered according to the manufacturer's warranty.
A standard warranty is around 10 years and a good contractor will also include a workmanship warranty of at least two years to protect against any issues that may arise from installation of your replacement windows. The main reason why most windows break after installation is due to faulty installation, so be sure to have this part of the warranty specified in writing before you choose a window replacement company.
In addition to checking the references of your windows contractor, also check the references of the windows manufacturer. You want to choose not only a reliable windows installer, but quality, well-made windows. Ask to see photos from other projects that are similar to yours and make sure to ask how long the company has been in business. You want to know how the company resolves issues as well as whether or not they stand behind their work. You want a company that works with windows consistently.
Fortunately, you'll be glad to know that at US Quality Construction, our specialties include replacement windows, replacement siding, decking and roofing. That's all we do, and we're incredibly good at it, as evinced by the dozens of five star reviews we've received from delighted homeowners across Missouri!
Last but certainly not least, before starting a project you'll want to be sure that your windows contractor meets the proper requirements for your local area. That includes whether or not your jurisdiction requires a permit and if the contractor is properly licensed or registered for the type of work you need performed.
Ask to make sure that the windows installation company has the proper documentation and is licensed, bonded and insured. This not only protects you in case there is an accident, but it also protects the company and is vital to ensuring that you're not hit with a big claim from your homeowner's insurance in the event of an injury on the job!

Considered as one of the biggest cities in the state of Kansas, Olathe, KS is a continuously growing population of 125,000 people. Filled with endless humor and a lively set of wonder in the community, its populace is thankful for the care and dedication set up by the governs and the higher-ups. Olathe, KS is a place filled with activity, bristling energy, and a competitive drive in all aspects of life. Though before it became such a staple to the state, Olathe, KS was but a lowly acre of land given a chance to prove itself. In the spring of 1867, Dr. John T. Barton took his horse and rode out to Johnson County. He was perplexed with the beauty etched of the petals of each wildflower that he saw within Olathe, KS. He described the ride to his friends about how he would name the future town as ‘Beautiful’, and as romantic as that sounds, Olathe, KS was named from a Shawnee interpreter’s native language.
With such a delightful beginning, one might assume that the town was set on a prosperous path then and there. However, this wasn’t the case with Olathe, KS. As the town became a city in 1857, tension began to rose over multiple and neighboring cities around Missouri and Kansas. Abolitionist’s settlers were angry and agitated over the slavery seen in the neighboring state, and a conflict quickly arose between the two, which consequentially led to what is known now as “Bleeding Kansas”. Issues didn’t subside in Olathe, KS even after the intervention of military forces and Union officials. By 1862, a raid by guerilla Confederates was led by William Quantrill against the city, causing piles of dozens of bodies littered across the destroyed city. Quantrill demanded to put the community of Olathe, KS into a binding oath into Confederacy. Despite the oath being deemed as invalid due to the enemy not being actual militia units, Olathe, KS was placed into the hands of Kansas militia throughout the Civil War. Raids persisted against Olathe, KS, with over 10,000 men fighting till retreat. It was only until 1865 did the Confederate surrender, and the posts surrounding Olathe, KS was subsequently disbanded.
After the destructive horrors in Olathe, KS’s pasts, the city is now the 24th fastest growing city in 2008, as by research done by the U.S Census Bureau. It was even deemed as the 11th Best Cities to Live in the United States by CNN, which is such a far cry when compared to what happened during the American Civil War. Olathe, KS underwent a number of city-wide developments, including demolishing previously beloved pieces of architecture around the city, to the pain of loving historians. Let this era of history set as a reminder for years to come, to be mindful of those people that you are with along with the inherent values that they may possess. Olathe, KS can still be a welcoming place with some effort, and learning between what transpired before to what is happening now is crucial for any long-lasting development within the city and its community.
Though nowadays, the people in the city occupy their time with helping their rising economy be the best it could be, along with trying to unify the community together with a number of city-wide events. Family nights where guests from everywhere can participate in. Much like every other place, Olathe, KS aims to be a permanent home for plenty. Though the past might be telling, one must remember just how the city first came to be.
From the blooming of flowers and a man with simple dedication, the origin tale of the city can also serve as a reminder of the possibilities it can accomplish with the right push and under the right governance. Olathe, KS may one day become that same bed of wildflowers the founder originally saw, with the whither and blow of time. Much like its name, it will be beautiful, but it can also be created from the destruction seen by its people before. The history of the city must remain in the hearts of its people, and be remembered by generations to come. With the help of the city’s Historical Society, it is.
