Requirements Your Window Contractor Must Have

When hiring a window contractor, it’s imperative to take every precaution to vet candidates properly. Screening each one’s resume is the first step to weed out bad eggs early.

Read on as Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois’s explains what to look for in a reliable contractor for your window installation project:


Inexperience spells disaster. Window replacement has a learning curve, which takes a while to master. Sure, every company has to start somewhere, but it’s hard to give one a chance when thousands of dollars are on the line. Even the best products can underperform and fail prematurely when improperly installed. To make the most of your replacement units, work with a company with over 15 years of proven expertise and industry excellence.


Gaining experience is one thing, getting certified to handle the job is another. At Renewal by Andersen, we only entrust the installation of our windows to Certified Master Installers. These professionals are graduates in our very own training program, equipping them with adequate product and construction knowledge.

What separates Certified Master Installers from other certified window contractors is that they’re in-house workers. We don’t use subcontractors and observe one-company accountability. You can’t say the same about installers certified by manufacturers completely independent from them.


In the event of accidents, a contractor’s insurance will bail you out. But if you hire an uninsured company, you might have to deal with the rigors of litigation, and be left high and dry. Ask for verifiable proof of insurance to protect yourself from any liability in case of worker injury.

BBB Accreditation

The value of accreditation from the Better Business Bureau needs no introduction. To separate the best from the rest, though, pay close attention to the company’s BBB rating as well as customer reviews and complaints.

In addition to flawless installation of replacement windows, Renewal by Andersen of Central Illinois delivers peerless customer service. Don’t take our word for it; the BBB rates us an A-plus (highest), and our valued customers give us nothing but five-star reviews.

"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!"
