What Does a Good Window Replacement Contract Look Like?
How can you be sure you’ve chosen a skilled and reliable window contractor? As a homeowner, reviewing your contract and discussing your concerns with your hired personnel is a must. To determine whether you are working with a reliable windows contractor, here are some of the things you need to look for when reviewing your contract.
Project Overview. The work required for window replacement and its scope are elaborated in this section. You will also see here the number and other details of the windows that are yet to be installed, an estimated timeline of the project and a description of how the old windows will be disposed of.
Bill of Materials. This section is one of the most important. Here, you’ll see an itemized list of all the materials that your contractor will be using to complete the installation. When reviewing your contract, make sure that everything in this section matches what you have discussed with your contractor.
Payment Terms. The payment terms should be clearly stated in the contract. If your window company insists on receiving full payment upfront, take it as a red flag. Honest contractors will never ask for the full payment upfront. The most common payment structure is a down payment upon signing the contract, with the remainder of the payments due in installments after specific project milestones are met.
License and Insurance Information. Be sure to verify your contractor’s license number, as well as a copy of their insurance certificate. Confirm that they have general liability insurance and workers’ compensation, which provides coverage for accidental property damage and worksite injuries, respectively.
