There are dozens of questions that you should ask a window company before you allow them to install replacement windows in Union City, CA. You should ask questions like, “How much experience do you have when it comes to doing window replacement?” You should also ask, “What techniques do you use to replace windows?” And you should always ask, “Can you please show me proof that you have a business license and insurance?”
But there’s one other question that you should ask that homeowners don’t always think to bring up. That question is: “Does your company rely on subcontractors to install windows?” There are many companies that don’t handle window installation on their own. Instead, they outsource the job to someone that’s not directly affiliated with their brand. Here is why you should avoid working with window companies that call on subcontractors for help at all costs.
They’ll send window installers that you don’t know to your home.
When you sit down with a Union City, CA window installation company to discuss your window replacement project, it’ll be nice to know that they’ll be the ones coming out and doing it. You won’t have to worry about who is going to show up at your home on the day of your window replacement job. You’ll see some familiar faces at your home, which is something that you won’t see if you hire a window company that sends subcontractors to do their dirty work.
They won’t always stand behind the work that gets done in your home.
Let’s say that something goes wrong when subcontractors are performing your new window installation. Maybe a window accidentally gets broken while it’s being installed or a window is installed improperly and it allows moisture to leak into your home right from the beginning. Ideally, the window company that you brought on board in the first place to install windows for you will take care of the problem by speaking to their subcontractors to get things straightened out. But there is a chance the subcontractors might not take responsibility for the issues with your windows. It could make things messy and make you wish you hadn’t trusted a window company that works with subcontractors.
They’ll make you feel uncomfortable throughout the duration of your window installation.
When you’re having new windows installed in your home, you should be excited. You should look forward to seeing window installers walking around in your home putting new windows into place. But if you have subcontractors all over the place, “excited” is the last thing you’re going to be. You’re going to be peeking around every corner and looking behind you at all times since you’re not going to fully trust installers you don’t know. It’ll make your window installation an uncomfortable experience all around.
