Prior to installing Orange, CA replacement windows in your home, you should always try to arrange a consultation with a window company. It’ll give you the opportunity to ask any questions you might have about the windows you’re thinking about installing in your home.

Before your consultation, you should put together a list of the questions you’d like to ask and avoid forgetting anything that might be important. It’ll help you feel 100 percent comfortable when it’s time to install your windows later. Check out 5 questions to ask during a replacement windows consultation below.

“How long has your window company been around?”

You might be tempted to start talking about new windows as soon as your consultation starts. But rather than doing that, spend time talking to a window company to find out more about what they’re all about. Your window company should be able to tell you a little bit about their history and the work they’ve done in your area. It’ll shed some light on what you can expect while working with them.

“What types of windows do you offer?”

The next thing you’ll want to discuss with a window company in Orange, CA is the types of windows they offer. They should offer more than just one type of window. From wood and vinyl to aluminum and fiberglass, you want a company that has a large selection of replacement windows available. Otherwise, you might end up getting roped into buying windows that won’t work well for your home.

“Which type of window would be best for my home?”

Speaking of buying the right windows for your specific home, you should ask a window company what they would recommend to you. More importantly, you should ask why they would recommend one type of window over the others. They might suggest wood windows because they would work well with the interior of your home or vinyl windows because they would cut down on the energy costs that you mentioned earlier in your consultation. Either way, you want a company that’ll customize your consultation to your home.

“How quickly can you install windows in my home?”

Once you agree to work with a window company, you want to know they’ll get right to work on installing your windows. It may take a few weeks for them to get your windows in stock. But once they have them, it should only take a day or two to actually install them. Avoid working with an inexperienced company that could take days or weeks on end to do a basic window installation.

“Do you offer financing options on windows?”

Replacing all of the windows in your home could potentially be very expensive. It’s not uncommon for homeowners to spend more than $10,000 on windows. If you can’t afford to pay all of that at once, a window installation company might be able to help you come up with a way to finance them. At the very least, they should be willing to provide you with a free estimate for your home so that you know what you’re getting yourself into with window installation.
