How your windows and doors are installed is crucial to their overall performance and longevity. With installation being an essential part of the overall success of your home project, choosing a competent contractor is extremely important.
There are a few essential things you should always do when hiring a contractor—make sure you get multiple estimates, check their references, never pay upfront, and always get everything in writing. Here are some additional things to consider to help ensure you’re hiring a qualified contractor.
Having copies of the contract, change orders, payment records and any communication with your contractor will help keep the project on track and resolve disagreements by detailing what has been agreed upon for your home project. To protect yourself, get a written contract detailing the work that will be completed, who will take care of getting any required building permits, any subcontractors that will be working and the payment schedule. It is recommended to arrange a small down payment and pay for work completed as the project progresses. Do not make the final payment until the job is completed.
