New Windows: What You Must Know

  • Verify the process for securing required building permits and obtain them before installing your new windows
  • Verify window contractors you're considering have appropriate credentials and licensing, and that they are bonded and insured. This protects you in case of accident or injury on your property
  • Verify that window contractors are authorized by your window manufacturer to install your windows. Allowing non-approved contractors to install your windows could cause your manufacturer's warranty to be voided
  • Obtain and check references for window installation contractors you're considering. If possible, arrange to inspect samples of their work
  • Establish a completion date in writing
  • Communicate freely with your window contractor. Consistently addressing questions and concerns with window contractors assists them with meeting your expectations and ensuring your satisfaction
  • Review written estimates, contracts and other documents carefully and ask for clarification if needed

Interviewing multiple contractors can help you find the best match for your needs and budget; asking friends, family and neighbors for recommendations can also lead to excellent window replacement results.
