The Criteria for Hiring a Reliable Window Contractor

The road to a successful window replacement is paved with financially sensible decisions. Sure, you could base your decision solely on whoever provides the lowest estimate, but paying attention to price alone rarely yields positive results.

The Criteria For Hiring A Reliable Window Contractor

In today’s post, Renewal by Andersen® of Portland shares several factors to consider when deciding what contractor to hire for your window replacement project:

Quality of Product

Before anything else, scrutinize the products your prospective window contractor offers. The glazing technology and framing material are the most important components of a window, as they can make or break a window’s energy efficiency and longevity. High-quality glazing significantly reduces thermal exchange, blocking heat gain, protecting against UV radiation, and allowing abundant daylighting. Meanwhile, a high-quality framing material prevents draftiness, contributes to beauty, and adds insulating value to your window.

Look for the ENERGY STAR® and National Fenestration Rating Council labels; they indicate energy efficiency. The former tells you the replacement windows are designed for your climate, while the latter describes their energy performance in critical areas, especially U-Factor and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient.

Scope of Service

Don’t assume all window contractors will be able to handle every aspect of your project from start to finish. Some contractors hire subcontractors to carry out certain parts of the job, which puts you at risk since you have no way to ascertain the reliability of these workers or the quality of the products they use.

Ideally, you should hire a company that literally oversees everything, from measurements to installation. Otherwise, your installer might not take accountability for manufacturing or material defects, leaving you between a rock and a hard place.

Comprehensiveness of Warranty

Spending your hard-earned dollars on a window replacement without reliable insurance against faulty products and workmanship errors is a risky undertaking. Select a company that provides warranties that cover the glass, non-glass components, and installation.
