When tackling a window replacement project, it’s wise to work with a local contractor. While hiring a home improvement company always comes with risks, choosing a neighbor over a stranger mitigates the job’s inherent dangers. Today, Renewal by Andersen® of New Mexico shares five reasons why:
1. Vetting Prospective Contractors Is Easier
All businesses put their best foot forward to attract customers, but doing your homework is less difficult when considering companies operating in your area. You can easily validate window contractor claims, check the existence of the company’s physical address and verify references. Doing your research becomes trickier when investigating an out-of-state company.
2. Bringing Your Home Up to Code
Credentialed, local contractors have a deep understanding of the latest building requirements. Considering that fire egress codes can vary from one city to another, working with a not so savvy, non-local company can render your home unsafe. Worse, your new windows might not comply with current regulations and the local authorities might take issue.
3. Getting Sound Advice
Like other home improvements, window replacement requires a lot of consideration. Beyond having a lot of architectural savvy, your contractor must be familiar with local climatic quirks. Otherwise, your replacement units might lack features that perform best in each of your rooms.
4. Enjoying Peace of Mind
In case of any failure, it’s easier to make a local business accountable for its mistakes. On the contrary, a window company from a faraway city could unjustifiably refuse to honor its product and workmanship warranties with little difficulty.
5. Boosting the Local Economy
Buying windows from a local company helps keep your money within the community. Supporting your local economy allows you to do your share in improving communities you care about.
