When it comes to hiring a window installer in Chicago, you want to make sure that you’re getting the best service possible, both for your home and for your budget.
Here are some tips on how to find a trustworthy window installer:
1. Seek out written estimates from at least three different installers. If there are price variations, ask for an explanation and don’t simply select the lowest bidder. Have the installers itemize their estimates so that you can see exactly what they’re including in their quotes.
2. Verify professional licenses, insurance policies and bonding—and make sure they’re current!
3. Do a background check through Angie’s List, the Better Business Bureau or other agencies in your area on any windows replacement Chicago contractor you’re seriously considering for the project. This will help ensure that no one has had any complaints about them in the past.
4. Determine if the project bid being offered by an installer is an estimate or a fixed price. If it’s an estimate, determine a specific amount by which the price could increase on the job and set a cap (this will save you from surprises later).
