Choosing The Best Window Contractor

What Makes a Good Window Contractor? Choosing the best replacement window contractor to handle your window installation is the most crucial aspect of your project. A wrong choice will leave you with a lot of mistakes to correct. Here is a list of the things you need to consider to choose the right company for your project.

Choosing The Best Window Contractor


Most window contractors have a web presence, meaning they will be found in google and bing map listings. However, just because a contractor shows up at the top of search results for you does not mean they are local. While this may not seem like a big issue, some contractors will charge additional transportation costs on top of the labor and material expenses. To avoid such issues, look for a contractor near your place of residence or one that does not pass travel costs on to you.

Pro may call Ferndale home, but we regularly take on projects as far away as Flint, and we never charge more for a job based on location.

A window contractor will have to deal with different sizes and shapes of windows as well as different configurations of frames and trims. Just knowing the difference between window styles is not enough. A truly experienced contractor will be familiar with all the steps required to complete the job accurately, professionally, and in a manner that will last decades. For the best results look for a contractor with at least five years of experience.

The best window contractors will have a good reputation in your area and the state at large. A good reputation means the contractor has made it a point to ensure that their clients are satisfied with the project from start to finish. You can often find evidence of their reputation by visiting online platforms such as Angie’s List, Home Advisor, and even the Better Business Bureau.

Beyond checking the reputation for a window contractor online, it is a good idea to request references, such as testimonials, when receiving the estimate. If they are a general contractor make sure you request references regarding window installation specifically. Just because a company is excellent at installing a new roof doesn’t mean they offer quality window services. Let the contractor give you at least five references.

In order to protect your home, property, and savings during a window installation it is important to choose a contractor with current liability and worker’s compensation insurances. Liability insurance covers any property damage that may occur, while worker’s compensation insurance takes care of the medical costs the result from a worker injuring themselves on your property. If a contractor does not carry both of these insurances, you may wind up being liable for the costs!

Pro has been fully insured since we opened our doors and want our customers to rest assured knowing that any issues which arise will be handled swiftly and professionally.

Builder’s License

Any home improvement company in Michigan must obtain an operating license from the state government. The reason for this license is that it allows the state to ensure that the company has met all the standard requirements and knows how to do the job they are offering. Make sure any window contractor you hire has a valid license. You might also want to know if they have any certification from the manufacturer of the materials they use.

Warranties & Guarantees

Guarantees and warranties can reduce any risks associated with the window project. Most window contractors have some form of guarantees, and a majority of window manufacturers offer some sort of warranty. Find out who covers what and the process for filing a claim before the project starts, so you’re never in the dark in case an issue arises.

Pro Home Improvement does not offer a split warranty. Instead, we guarantee all materials and labor involved with every windows project we deliver. If something goes wrong with a window we installed, we will handle the repair without you needing to run through any hoops.
