Since you are hiring complete strangers to remake an important part of your home, you need to be absolutely sure that you found the right people for the job. There are a couple of things you should put the focus on during your research:

  • Experience in the field

  • Quality of the products offered

  • Warranties & insurance

  • Open-mindedness and excellent communication

Experience & Dedication

Even though new companies have their own strong suits such as enthusiasm, it’s better for you to choose older and more experienced ones. Same as with everything, experience expands knowledge and skill, often leading to much better results.

You would want your contractors to have faced tons of difficult situations since through them they have gained impeccable knowledge. Additionally, you would want someone that is dedicated.

Going through your home quickly and without taking the time to explain or find adequate solutions is highly amateurish. True professionals know that communication and dedication are key for building trustworthy relationships.

Reviews & Preferences

Online presence speaks volumes about professionals. Those that have cheap, hard to understand websites, significantly lose points with potential clients. In truth, a poorly organized online presence isn’t proof that the company lacks professionalism.

If you want to investigate more about your chosen contractors, check for reviews on sites like Angie’s List, HomeStars, LinkedIn and even Facebook. Besides reading reviews, put the focus on the replies.

The manner in which the contractor replied to a review (whether positive or negative) will show you everything you need to know about their character. Just replying by itself is a big plus since this means that the company spared time to address complaints and appreciate compliments.

Beware of fake reviews or those written by friends and family!

Educate Yourself

The best way to choose a windows and doors company is by being educated on the subject yourself. There are tons of informative articles online through which you can learn a lot. This will give you an upper hand and reduce the chances of you getting scammed by an amateur.

Some contractors won’t give you that many options and will limit your creativity. This doesn’t benefit your home at all. A good company will try its best to realize your ideas.

However, in some cases the options truly are limited. If this happens, your contractors must take time to calmly and thoroughly explain the entire situation.

You should also educate yourself about quality materials and products. Companies that offer various materials, from cedar wood to fiberglass, are usually the best ones. A good company will have certified products such as those with Energy Star ratings and CSA.
