5 Questions To Ask Your Door Replacement Contractor

How long have you had your entry door? If your door is 5 to 8 years old and starting to show signs of wear and tear, it might be time for a door replacement. Before you jump into purchasing a new entry door with a contractor, there are some important questions you should ask them. Continue reading to learn about the 5 questions to ask your door replacement contractor.

1. How Long Has Your Company Been In Business?

When it comes to the reliability of a company, identifying how long they have been in business is crucial. The more time a company has been in business means the more experienced they are at door replacements and installations. If you want to trust a company enough to provide you with a quality door replacement, it’s best to figure out how many years they have been replacing entry doors for.

2. What Type Of Warranty Do You Offer?

Although not a dealbreaker, a warranty can give you more reassurance in choosing a door replacement contractor. Ask the company about specific warranties. For instance: What happens if my door breaks down in the next week, or upcoming months? Does the warranty cover the accompanying labour that is needed to fix the problem? Based off the warranties, you can decide whether the company is right for you and your lifestyle.

3. Can I See Examples of Your Past Work?

If the company you have chosen has been in the door business for a while, they should have many different examples of their past work that they can show you. Seeing these examples, or reading reviews from past customers, will allow you to see the quality of the work. Not only will you see the quality of work, but you will also see the style, aesthetic, and design of the job. This will further help you decide if the company is a good fit for your door replacement.

4. Are You Licensed And Insured?

While it might seem picky to ask this question, it’s important to ensure the company has the proper licenses and insurances. If a contractor is licensed and insured, it means that you, family members, and any visitors will be protected from any bodily injuries or property damage that can occur on the worksite. For example, if anyone is injured, the insurance from the company will cover any medical fees.

5. Do You Have Energy Efficient Options For Exterior Doors?

When deciding on an exterior door, energy efficient doors are the most popular options, as entry doors are the main spots where heat can escape. This means insulated doors are a great option, as well as fiberglass, steel, and vinyl doors. Before choosing a company to replace your entry doors, make sure that their suppliers provide energy efficient door options, so you can save on your future energy bill costs.
