Thanks to the power of the internet in the 21st century, finding a glass company or contractor is very easy. If you do a local search on Google, you will find more companies and contractors in and around your area than you need, and then the next problem becomes: “How do I know which one to hire and which one to kick to the curb?”
This is the essence of this article. We hope to show you a few ways you can determine which company or contractor is right for you by asking a few questions. Here are some of the questions you should ask prospective glass contractors or companies for your glass replacement before hiring them:
- Are you licensed and insured for this job?
Replacement or fixing of glass is not an easy task. It is also very sensitive. You have to make sure the contractor helping with yours is a certified professional in the field. You also want to make sure they are insured incase of any damages that may happen during the process. The value of this question cannot be overestimated.
- How long have you been in business and how often do you do this work?
The reputation of the contractor or company you are doing business with is also very important if you want to get a good one. This is not to say, however that you should not give newbies a chance to impress you if they are licensed and insured, but just a subtle reminder that the experience of the company you are working with will have an effect on your work. If you are working with a low budget though, it might make be wiser to hire licensed and insured newbies.
- Can I see previous jobs you have done?
Seeing is believing most times. Seeing previous jobs will give you the confidence that a contractor is good or not. That confidence is necessary when selecting a good company or contractor for your glass fixing or replacement.
- Can you offer me a warrantee or even a money-back guarantee?
If a licensed and experienced company is willing to stand behind their guarantee to you and give you a warrantee in case their jobdoes not live up to expectations. It might even be possible that you find a company that will pay you your money if you are not satisfied with their service. This kind of guarantee gives you the confidence that they are so sure of the quality of their service that they are willing to put all the risk on their shoulders.
