Things To Know Before Hiring A Glass Installer
If you are planning to fix, replace or purchase new windows or glass for your home then here are some important things that you should know. According to a report that was released by Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value back in 2014, the average costs incurred during a remodeling of a vinyl window is around $9,978 to $13,385. During resale, homeowners are able to get a return of investment of around 76 to 78 per cent.
The most important thing that you should ask before hiring a glass installation company is whether they have full license and if the business is bonded and insured. Don’t forget to ask about the warranty before installation and what it covers.
If you are planning to do a DIY project for your glass and window installation, keep in mind that it is easier to do new construction compared to retrofitting. Retrofitting is taking out the current window frames and installing the new ones. If you have been doing DIY projects for quite some time, it would still need a certain level of precision in order to make sure that the measurement you are taking will be a good fit for your house. When thinking in the long run, it is still safer and much cheaper if you hire a professional who have the proper skills in measuring and cutting as well as choosing the right materials.
If you want to prep your home for the installation, you have to know that for an experienced staff, the retrofitting can be done in a day with up to 15 windows that can be installed. Make sure the work area is clean before the crew arrives. Move all the furniture and any obstacles in the way. If you have bushes in the window area that is getting in the way then it is the best time to trim them. Once you have set an appointment with a glass shop Melbourne, make sure that the area where they will be working is fully prepped to make their job faster and easier as much as possible.
