North Texas

In North Texas, BuyWindowsDirect can provide installation of your windows.  We have certified crews that are master craftsmen, insured, and excellent customer service rating.    All installations provided by our certified craftsmen are backed by a limited lifetime installation warranty.   BuyWinodwsDirect warrants that the installation of the product will be free of defects in workmanship under normal use and services for as long as you own your home in which the products were installed.  This warranty is transferable one time only by the original single-family homeowner to a successor owner of the property.  If this warranty is transferred, it will remain in effect for 10 years after the date of the transfer.

If you are outside our North Texas coverage zone then see our suggestions below.

  • It is best to find a local contractor that has multiple crews that install windows for a living.  This way you are dealing with a company that has a track record and previous customers that can be used as references.

  • To find a local contractor you can search sources like BBB, Angie’s List, internet search or the Yellow Pages.

  • This is like any other job interview. You are the boss and they are the potential employee.

  • Verify insurance and license that are required in your state.  Request a copy of the insurance and other required documents be given to you prior to the start of the project.

  • Each contractor should give you an estimate listing the price for each of the following: materials, labor and overhead. They should also give a time frame for the project’s completion.

  • Ask them to provide references from past customers. Three to five should be enough. Try to have the references span from the recent past to a few years ago to see what the contractor’s career has been like.

  • If the contractor can’t pay for materials and other costs, ask for some sort of financial reference (like banking information) that will act as collateral so they will not run off on the job.

  • Make sure the contractor knows what permits (if any) to file with the county. Do not allow the contractor to work without permits no matter how much they insist it is easier without them and they will not get caught. If they do get caught (and it happens more often than not), the project will have to be halted and you may have to pay a fine.

Call the References the Contractor Provided

A list of names and telephone numbers doesn’t really tell you anything about the contractor’s abilities to complete your project to your satisfaction. Call each reference and ask these questions:

  • How did they find the contractor (phone book, friend, etc.)?

  • What were the details of the project the contractor did for this person? Example: how long ago was the project, were the results satisfactory….etc.

  • Did the contractor behave professionally? Did he stick to the schedule and budget?

  • Would the person recommend the contractor to others?

Choosing a Bid Offer

Once the references check out, compare the estimates of the contractors to one another. If a bid seems suspiciously low there is probably a (not good) reason for it. Make sure a low bid isn’t the result of the contractor trying to use substandard materials. Remember to compare time frames as well as money. Decide whether it is important to have the job done fast or to have it done for less money. Keep every document and ask any questions that you may have now. Before you sign a contract, make sure you know what you are signing yourself up for.

This may seem like an obvious statement, but make sure the contract is an actual, legally binding one. Do not draft your agreement on a bar napkin. Make sure your expectations for the contractor and what is expected from you are clearly spelled out in the contract.

If you do your research and select a reputable contractor, there should be no major problems with the installation process. At the end of the project, your home will have its new windows that will make life more attractive and energy-efficient for you. And you barely had to lift a finger.
