How Important is the Window Installer?
Let’s assume that you’ve done your research and have found the very best window on the market. Most homeowners think that finding this high quality window is the end of the purchasing process. What many do not consider is the window installer. When purchasing a new window, the first question that should be asked is: Are the installers who will be doing the work actual employees of the company or are they subcontractors? This will immediately give you a good idea of how the company operates. A window installer who is a loyal employee of a window company should only be used to install window jobs. Never should he become a jack-of-all-trades installing whatever project comes up next. A company that utilizes certified installers with years of experience that are also employees of their company, coupled with a fine product, is generally a sure bet.
Homeowners need to evaluate installers carefully to ensure that the people doing the actual work are professional, licensed, and insured. Look for installers who are factory trained and certified. They're completely knowledgeable with the manufacturing process to better understand the products they install. Many companies, especially with their own employee installers, send them to seminars and educational programs to ensure the highest quality workmanship.
If a company says that they use their own employee to install their products, don’t be afraid to ask them to put it in writing. Once the job is over, it’s too late to check out who did the work.
