There are hard questions when it comes to getting replacement windows in Ventura, CA. If you were to ask a window contractor: which window is the best one? Or which window do you recommend for me? That takes a little figuring. It’s not something they can answer the minute you walk through the door. They’re going to want to know more about you, what your goals are, what your budget looks like, and what needs your home has. The best window for one person isn’t the best for someone else. But there are some questions that should be very easy for them to answer—but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t’ ask them. In fact, it’s a good idea to know the answers so you can ensure that you are working with the right contractor and company overall. Here are some of those easy questions.
Are You Licensed?
It sounds like it might come off the wrong way because they should be, of course. But if you don’t ask, you won’t know for sure. And those who have the right licensing should be quick to understand that you are trying to protect your interests and your home’s investments in replacement windows. They should be able to answer you with a resounding yes and they should have paperwork that proves it.
Are You Fully Insured?
Again, this should be something that anyone in the industry should have, but that doesn’t mean everyone does. You want proof of insurance so that when the workers come to your home, you know if anyone is hurt or if your home is damaged, you are covered through the window company, not on your own. It’s important to have that peace of mind before you move ahead.
Do You Have References?
Any window contractor should have a list of references you can contact to back up the work they have said they have done in the past. There’s no shame in contacting some of them to make sure they are happy with the job they received. You want to make sure you get what you need from this rather large investment.
How Much Installation Experience Do You Have?
Most people keep track of approximately how many years they have on the job so it should be easy for the installers to tell you just how long they’ve been installing windows. Not everyone knows exactly how many jobs they have done, but if they’ve been there for years, it’s easy enough to figure that they’ve been a part of hundreds of installations.
