What are the things you should be aware of before looking for door and window companies? At Window Mart, we receive several calls from clients inquiring about how to deal with window replacement situations when hiring window and doors Edmonton contractors. Not all questions are new and most of them come with universal solutions. Yet a lot of homeowners start a window replacement without getting the basic knowledge of it. And, that’s all right, this is why you are paying the professionals. However, in order to hire the right contractors for your door and window replacement, you should be aware of these things.
Some of the common questions to ask in relation to your house from door and windows Edmonton contractors to get an idea of what results you can expect are:
How long will the window installation take?
Door and window installation depends on the number of them you want to install and the complexity of the project. On average, you can expect the installation of 6 windows on one working day. However, installing one bay window can take one whole day. Sharing from our own experience, most window installation projects take up to 3 days depending on the number and size of the windows and the amount of work needed.
How long does it takes to service it if something happens after the installation?
If the service problem has a connection with installation defect, then it is taken care of within a week’s time. One of the common issues which newly installed windows face is leaky caulking. As caulking can take some time to harden up and get fixed in place and caulking is left for around a month before it is redone again. However, if there is an issue with the window and service needs ordering of components, it may take a few weeks till the service part is made available and installed.
Can the windows be painted?
Well, yes! The vinyl windows can be painted with any shade. Most colors have a set of standard colors to choose from. However, if you have selected a custom color, then that can also be done. Remember, the cost of painted windows is more than white windows and custom painted windows are priced higher in comparison to standard color windows.
What if you find rotted wood while replacing the window?
When you notice rot wood, then you need to follow the proper installation procedure. The installer should get rid of the old rot wood and replace it with a new one. These problems are more seen in big window openings and in patio doors. In several cases, if the damage is small, it is done free of cost. In some cases, where it requires additional materials and effort for several hours, then customers are notified about the additional fees with such repairs.
