    • Does the quote include permit fees
  • Ask the right questions – write them down on a list so you don’t forget
    • NC state license?
    • Does the general contractor use licensed subcontractors?

    • Ask for pictures of previous work – are they just “after” pictures or do they have before and after?
    • Will you deal with the same person throughout the remodel or just the day you sign the contract and the final walk thru?
    • What kind of warranty?  Tail light warranty or the industry standard.

Tips

Replacement Window

Replacement window installation can be a simple task when broken down into steps.

  1. Removal of old window can vary based on the type  of window installed.  This may be as simple as the removal of interior stop followed by window removal.  It can be a little tougher if the window installed has an exterior nail flange.  This will have to be cut out or the exterior trim removed to provide access to remove the window unit.
  2. Verify and correct window jam square and level.  This is an important step that many remodeling rookies skip.  Cutting this corner can lead to rough operation of the window and poor aesthetics.
  3. Apply a bead of caulk around the entire jam where the new window will contact.  Provides an air and water tight seal.
  4. Install properly sized replacement window.  Screw window into jam.
  5. Replace interior and exterior trim.
  6. Caulk as necessary and paint.
  7. Enjoy years of leak free beautiful energy-efficient replacement windows.

At custom construction we recommend double pane windows that are Low E and argon filled.  These windows will bear the energy star logo.  Many times this will make the home owner eligible for a green tax credit for energy savings.
