Choosing to have new windows installed is choosing to have higher energy efficiency in your home and to enjoy many other benefits. While choosing the right windows to have installed is one important element, it is also important that you choose the right company for window installation. How do you know if they have done their job right? Inspect the following elements before they leave your home.
At Progressive Insulation & Windows we want to complete every job correctly and for every client to be 100% happy with the work we do. If you run across a company that does not want to allow you to inspect their work, then you have likely run into a company that is not the right choice for your needs.
Check This Before the Windows Are Even Installed
When the installers show up, ask to look at the windows before they install them. You do not need to inspect them at this point, but you do need to check and ensure they are the style and color you ordered. If you chose upgrades, make sure they are included. Window companies are very careful to doublecheck to prevent these issues but mistakes can happen in any industry.
The Team Should Offer a Final Tour
When the window installation process is complete, the team leader should offer to show you all the work they did. They will give you a chance to ask questions. This is the time for you to take a closer look at the windows to make sure that everything has been done to your specifications. You’re looking to ensure that the windows are flush with the wall, that they open can close without issue, and that they work well.
If you have questions or concerns, do not hesitate to ask for clarification. This is an investment and you have every right to feel confident that it is a wise investment.
Keep Your Eyes Open After the Installation is Complete
After they leave, there are some things you can keep an eye on over the years. Do you notice your home’s energy efficiency improving? Do you notice that they are working correctly? Do they let rain in? Have they continued to work as well as they should? If you have worked with a good company, they should warranty their installation and the windows used should have their own warranty.
