You need to be able to trust everyone that works on your home, and this includes the contractors responsible for your replacement doors and replacement windows in Sacramento, CA. Beyond reading reviews and doing research, you also need to ask lots of questions. But, to be sure you’re getting the right information, you need to ask the right questions.
Before agreeing to work with a contractor on your replacement doors or replacement windows, you need to ask these four questions. Their answers will help you determine if they are a good fit for your home and doors.
- When Will You Be Able to Install My New Doors? There’s no point moving forward if the contactor can’t work within your desired timeline. Be sure to check when they can expect your doors to be ready, and when they can perform the installation. A common time frame is to schedule an installation two week in advance. This gives you time to prepare your home, and the contractor time to prepare your replacement doors.
- What Materials Will Be Used for the Doors? It’s a good idea to learn as much as you can about the materials your contractor or vendor use to manufacture your replacement doors. Do some research, and make sure that the materials hold up to your standards for appearance, energy efficiency, function, and long-term performance. Vinyl, wood, and fiberglass are all good choices, but you should be sure that your chosen material can hold up to your door needs.
- Is Your Staff Well-Trained? This is a big one. Your doors can be as premium as can be, but it won’t matter if they’re not properly installed. You should only hire a team that can guarantee their experience and skills. Ask about certifications, licenses and insurance. Don’t be shy about inquiring as to the team’s training, and how up to date they are on the latest technology and techniques in the industry.
- What Does Your Replacement Process Entail? Your replacement door contractor should be more than will to walk you through their entire process. This is an important question, as you should be confident that the crew will know what they are doing, and will work diligently through the entire journey. This is also important because you need to be able to prepare your home for the replacement door installation, from moving furniture and artwork to maybe even getting a sitter for the kids for the day.
