No matter how old your home is, the odds are good that you will have to have the windows replaced at some point over the course of your time living there. Even if you’re in the process of a new construction project, you will still have to select the right windows for your new house while it is being built.

Window replacement, fortunately, is a relatively straightforward home remodeling project that doesn’t usually take a great deal of time if done correctly. Improperly installed windows, however, could result in a host of problems for you and your family down the road. Therefore, it’s important to make sure you select a window replacement contractor who will do the job right the first time. You’ll learn more about how to do this as you read on.

Consider Whether or Not You Need a Specialist

Although most window installers are willing to deal with any standard type of window on the market today, some contractors do have certain specialties. If, for instance, you live in a historic home and you want to replace all of your old, rotting window frames with historically accurate reproductions, you may have more limited options than someone who is purchasing popular vinyl, double-hung windows.

Research Your Options Thoroughly

There are many window installation contractors throughout the Carolinas and Virginia. It can be overwhelming to begin sifting through them, trying to figure out which one is the best fit for you. The best thing you can do is start by making a shortlist of options you’ve heard a lot about locally, or you’ve gotten word-of-mouth recommendations about.

Once you’ve created your shortlist, you can spend time researching each of those companies in-depth. Read online reviews, look at details about each of their service offerings, and don’t hesitate to call if you have questions about your specific situation. Hatch Homes is proud to have many repeat customers throughout Charlotte, NC, Charleston, SC, and the surrounding region; we look forward to speaking with you about your upcoming project too.

Get Written Quotes

A good rule of thumb is to have three prospective window installation contractors give you quotes before you make your final decision. Not only will this give you a baseline in regard to cost, but it will allow you to compare various contracts. You might find that you don’t like one of the stipulations in a particular contractor’s fine print. If this is the case, you can remove that company from your shortlist.
