How do you know that the companies are reputable and reliable?
Fortunately, as a leading window installation company serving Sedalia, Shawnee and surrounding areas, we know what homeowners are looking for when it comes to having replacement windows installed. 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!
