Whether you’re having your glass block or awning windows replaced, it’s vital that you ask your consultant a few questions. That way, you can get to know your potential window supplier and narrow down your options. Some questions range from the easy ones such as “Is the company local?” or technical ones like “How is Low-E glass beneficial?” While these questions are important and are pretty standard fare, there are other questions that you should always ask.
Are There Any Hidden Fees?
Hidden fees are a major concern. Usually, hidden fees only apply when the consultant can’t determine the window’s condition, but the fact that they aren’t stated right away can catch you off guard. With that in mind, it’s always important that you ask about any other related project fees and what services and products they’ll cover to avoid being surprised by hidden fees.
Can They Plan Around Other Contractor’s Services?
Oftentimes, you won’t have your vinyl or glass block windows replaced on their own; you’ll most likely do get it done alongside other renovations like a kitchen makeover or a new siding installation. Should this be the case, it’s important that everything goes as smoothly as possible to allow the projects to be finished on time. With that in mind, always ask the consultant to plan around or alongside the other contractors to prevent any shortcomings in the end.
Can They Explain The Exterior and Interior Finishes?
On the other hand, if you’re having new vinyl windows installed in your home, there’s already an existing interior and exterior finish. Selecting the correct ones is important if you want to maintain harmony in terms of design and to get the best performance. Therefore, you should always ask your consultant about these finishes in order to have an aesthetically pleasing window.
