It’s always a little stressful inviting a stranger into your home to perform work or maintenance. That’s why if you’re hiring contractors to work on the entry doors in your Winnipeg, MB home, it’s important that you are well informed about their background, experience, and process. To be sure you’re getting the right information, you need to ask the right questions.
Before agreeing to work with a contractor on your entry doors, you need to ask these 4 questions. Their answers will help you determine if they are a good fit for your home and doors.
- What Does Your Replacement Process Entail? Your replacement entry 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 will 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 entry 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 entry door needs.
- When Will You Be Able to Install My New Entry 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 entry doors.
- Is Your Staff Well-Trained? Your entry doors can be as well-made as can be, 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.
