Even veteran homeowners should be wary of inviting a stranger into their home to for work. If you’re hiring contractors to install new fiberglass replacement doors on your Benicia, CA home, it’s important that you be well informed about their background, experience, and process. To be sure you’re getting the right information, you need to ask the right questions.
Use this list of 4 questions to ask your replacement door contractors to guide you while interviewing potential businesses. Their answers will help you determine if they are a good fit for your home.
- What Does Your Replacement Process Entail? Your replacement door contractor should be more than will to walk you through their entire process. This is an important question, as you should be confident that the crew would know what they are doing, and will work diligently through the entire journey. This is also important because you need to be able to prepare your home for the door installation, from moving furniture and artwork to maybe even getting a sitter for the kids for the day.
- What Materials Will Be Used for the Doors? It’s a good idea to learn as much as you can about the materials your contractor or vendor use to manufacture your replacement doors. Do some research, and make sure that the materials hold up to your standards for appearance, energy efficiency, function, and long term performance. Vinyl, wood, and fiberglass are all good choices, but you should be sure that your chosen material can hold up to your replacement door needs.
- When Will You Be Able to Install My New Doors? There’s no point moving forward if the contactor can’t work within your desired timeline. Be sure to check when they can expect your doors to be ready, and when they can perform the installation. A common time frame is to schedule an installation two week in advance. This gives you time to prepare your home, and the contractor time to prepare your replacement doors.
- Is Your Staff Well-Trained? Your replacement doors can be as well made as possible, but it won’t matter if they’re not properly installed. You should only hire a team that can guarantee their experience and skills. Ask about certifications, licenses and insurance. Don’t be shy about inquiring as to the team’s training, and how up to date they are on the latest technology and techniques in the industry.
If the contractor is unwilling to answer these or similar questions, you should probably reconsider hiring him or her. Transparency is always key, but especially so when you’re asking a stranger to work on your home.
