Replacement Windows and Doors, Part 2: Finding an Installer

In the first part of this blog series, we discussed the numerous benefits of installing replacement windows and doors. Apart from improving your home’s curb appeal, they also play a huge role in keeping your home comfortable and protected from the elements.

Home Improvement Contractor

However, your doors and windows in Springfield, IL, are only as good as the installation. Even top-quality products will not perform well if installed improperly. That’s why hiring an expert installer is important for your project’s success. Let Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois discuss some tips for finding an installer qualified for the job:

Get Recommendations
When it comes to your home, you want only the best. You can locate the best door and window installer by getting recommendations from friends, neighbors, and family members. If they have recently undergone a door and window replacement, ask them if they would hire the same company for their next project. You can also search for reviews online and ask for references to verify the reputation of your potential installers.

Consider the Contractor’s Reputation
One way to know if a contractor is worth your money and time is by reviewing their professional experience. Some companies tend to offer more affordable prices only to deliver low-quality output. Make sure that your installer has years of reputable experience installing doors and replacement windows in Springfield, IL. For instance, Renewal by Andersen has been improving homes around the country for over a century. To date, the company has replaced more than two million windows in 300,000 homes. This clearly demonstrates its strong commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction. As the official representative of Renewal by Andersen in the region, we share the same standards and values.

Know the Action Plan
Make sure that the contractor will be able to detail their action plan with you. This is to help you make adjustments on your daily activities and to keep you up-to-date with the progress. You should also know their plan in case of any adverse conditions during the installation of your doors and replacement windows in Decatur, IL. Lastly, be sure to establish good communication with the company so you can raise any concerns promptly.

"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
