If you’ve visited our website, you may have noticed that our window replacement company doesn’t use subcontractors to install the windows we sell.
We’re proud to be able to provide our customers with professional installation. We do not sub-contract our jobs.
So you might be wondering… “Who will be installing my replacement windows and doors?”
At Windowfits, we guarantee that all of our installers are carefully chosen and have extensive training and experience.
With us, you can trust that your window replacement project will be finished in a timely manner, your home will be cleaner than when we arrived, and all the windows and doors will be quality products. We believe in treating each home as if it were our own.
So why is it important for us to mention that we do not sub-contract? You see, many homeowners don’t realize that other companies that sell window replacements are just selling and ordering windows.
Once they order your windows, they hire another company to complete the installation.
Be aware that not all companies that sub-contract window replacement installation will be upfront with you about this. They probably won’t lie to you, but they will just let you assume that their employees are completing the installation if you don’t ask them.
So, what can you do?
Ask them! Here are some questions you should ask the window company you are thinking about buying window replacements from:
- “Who will be installing my new windows?”
- “Do the people installing my window replacements work for your company?”
You may be thinking, “Why should I care about who installs my windows?”
Well, we’re here to tell you, there are several reasons why you should buy from a window replacement company that has its own team of professional window installers.
Window installation is a specialized skill. Sub-contractors may be qualified in window installation, or they might not be. They could be a general building company that does all types of home improvement and remodeling projects. A window replacement company’s benefit is that their installers have been trained and specialize in window and door installation. They know the best practices and can handle unique situations.
You want window installers who are knowledgeable about the windows or doors they are installing. In many cases, the installation team is your last point of contact in the window replacement process.
If you have any final questions about your new windows, they are the ones you will ask, so you want to make sure they are knowledgeable about the products to answer every question you may have.
Most times, sub-contractors don’t always feel a sense of accountability to the homeowners. Sub-contractors know that if an issue arises down the road, you will call the company you purchased the windows from, not them.
This may cause them to rush through your job or cut corners, causing more issues in the future. If there’s an issue later due to poor installation, the manufacturer most likely won’t honor their warranty, and you’ll be forced to pay out of pocket for a new window or to have it fixed.
We hope this blog gave you a better understanding of who will be installing your replacement windows and doors. Window replacements are a big investment, so you want to make sure that the people installing them are certainly qualified to do so! If you’re going to invest in high-quality windows, make sure you also invest in highly trained professional installers. For all your window replacement needs, contact us at Windowfits.
