Questions To Ask Before Your Window Installation

Whether you are installing impact windows or planning a window replacement in West Palm Beach, there are a few questions you should ask your window contractor. Window installations are very important to keeping your home protected and energy efficient. You need to make sure you are receiving the best product from the most qualified contractor.

Which window and frame materials will protect my home the best?

Depending on where you live, you may benefit from a specific type of window, such as impact windows. Other locations may not need impact windows, but they still cannot support a wood-framed window installation. There are a number of factors that go into a successful window installation. Consult your window contractor on the best windows for your home and location.

In what ways will this purchase benefit me and my home?

When investing in a new window installation, you want to know all of the ways you can benefit from it. The window may protect your home against debris, but you should know if it will also contribute to making your home more energy efficient. With the right window installation, you could easily pay off your investment with added savings from your energy bill, damage replacement, and insurance discounts.

Will this purchase be covered by my insurance policy?

Many insurances will not cover window replacement, unless it is part of the policy. However, you may be able to receive a discount based on the type of windows you choose. Ask your window installer and homeowners’ insurance provider if there are any deals or discounts you can receive.

Does the company, and its employees, carry the necessary insurances and licenses?

Every home improvement company should carry insurances to cover their business and employees. They should also be licensed and certified by the appropriate organization to work on your home. Your window contractor should be licensed by the state, as well as carry code-approved products for every home or commercial building.
