You are ready to invest in a custom window to update a specific room in your home or to update all of your house’s windows, but you aren’t sure what to do next. Finding a custom window professional can be frustrating or even overwhelming, especially with many options throughout the Chicagoland area. Before you commit to a specific professional or company, be sure to do your due diligence by asking a few questions that could help to point you in the direction of an excellent working relationship.
How long have you been in business?
You definitely do not want to work with a custom window professional that won’t be around for the next five or ten years. You also don’t want to work with a company that is brand new to the area. Instead, look for a company that is established in the Chicagoland area and has longevity; this way, you know you can reach out to them with questions or with your next project.
What types of materials do you work with?
It is wise to work with a custom window professional that chooses to use quality materials that are energy-efficient, durable, and built to last. While these materials can sometimes cost a bit more, the durability and energy savings are well worth the investment. Beware of professionals who work with cheap materials that may not last the test of time.
Can you give me a price estimate on my project?
While no company will be able to give you the exact price of your window and installation, a professional with decades of experience should be able to give you a close approximation. Beware of companies tentative to give you an estimate or any company that bids an amount that is well below the others you have received.
Can I see some of your work in the neighborhood?
You want to go into business with a professional who gives outstanding results and creates beautiful windows in your neck of the woods. Ask to see before and after photos of recent projects as well as a reference list of happy customers you could talk to. No references? No deal.
Do you offer installation and follow up?
Installation is important and you want to be sure you are working with a professional that has connections with a reputable team of installers. If not, your project just got a bit more difficult.
