If you find a window fitter, you need to check whether your old windows need to be removed. Discuss all the factors to consider with the window fitters before establishing a time for them to come and fit the windows. Try to ensure the windows are removed and replaced on the same day so your home is not vulnerable and cold.
When choosing a window fitter here are some tips you will need to follow:
- Check whether a certified body approves them. This is to make sure they possess the right credentials so you know they are proficient in what they are doing. You would not want to spend money on a window installation only to discover the fitter did the job poorly.
- Do not immediately go for the cheapest rate. It may be tempting if you want to save on funds but this could end up as a risky choice. Consider the price; an expensive rate does not guarantee the best services so the decision should be based on other important factors such as their certification.
- A large company will probably charge you more at times unnecessarily. There is no problem with going for a large company for your window installation needs but local installers could have the same skillset and accreditation and have cheaper rates. They may also be more flexible given that their work demands are usually more lenient.
- Check whether you will have to remove your old windows and put in new frames to avoid wasting time when the fitter comes to install the new windows.
- Check the window fitters’ previous work, reviews, and their recommendations as they could be certified but have bad reviews. Reviews are important in confirming whether their services are up to standard.
- Obtain multiple quotes for window installation services so you can compare prices between the choices you have narrowed down to find the best option.
- Do not feel obligated to commit to anything immediately. Ensure you do your research beforehand so you do not agree with the first quote you are presented.
- A good window installation company should have insurance so that if something goes wrong with your installation they can be held responsible.
