Are you planning on having your windows replaced? If you answered yes, then you should definitely try to learn as much as possible about the project. And, what better way to learn about it than directly asking window experts during a consultation? Here are some of the most important questions you should ask before your window replacement even starts.
How Will the New Windows Operate?
This one seems obvious at first, but you’d be surprised at how many homeowners are caught off-guard by windows that don’t operate as they expected. Even if you know that you’re getting new casement windows, ask if these are casement windows that open by swinging outward, inward or both directions.
Ask About the Finish
A window’s finish can have a significant effect on the overall look of your windows. The finish will also have an effect on the overall cost of your windows, plus the maintenance requirements and even the energy efficiency of the window as a whole.
Standalone or Set
A lot of homeowners tend to overlook the appearance and function of their new windows in relation to older ones that don’t have to be replaced yet. Some windows are fine as standalone replacements, but others work better if installed along with other replacements as a complete set. This will have a huge effect on the budget needed to get the best results so it’s important to ask this well before installation starts.
Ask for All the Fees
It’s common for replacement window projects to go beyond the expected budget. However, you can avoid unexpected fees during home exterior renovations by asking for a more comprehensive cost breakdown of your projects. This will also help you prepare an extra “buffer” for rare cases where an unexpected problem could cost extra resources to fix before the new windows can be installed.
