Although it’s easy to take them for granted, your windows play an important role in your business facility from both a functional and visual perspective. If you want to update your windows to let in more light, keep in more heat, or just achieve a different style for your building, you’ll need the help of a qualified window contractor. To help make your selection process easier, our team at DGC Glass Systems, LLC has put together a list of key qualities to look for when choosing a contractor for your business.

  • License and Insurance- The first thing to check when researching a window contractor is whether they have the right licensing and insurance coverage. Trade licenses certify that a contractor has completed a certain number of training hours and upheld certain quality standards–essentially, they prove that the technician can do the work. You’ll also want to make sure that your contractor has the right insurance coverage to protect you in the event of an accident or injury during the course of the project–without insurance, you may have to eat those costs yourself.
  • Experience- Another thing to look for in a window contractor is experience. Having the right license is a good start, but practice is what really makes a difference to the final results. Because of this, you’ll want a team that’s had plenty of time to become familiar with the craft, and with over 125 years of combined experience, we definitely have that.
  • Reputation- Lastly, you should also look into a window contractor’s reputation in your community and among its trade organizations before you hire them. We are proud members of the Raleigh Chamber of Commerce, the National Glass Association, and the Association of Building Contractors, and we are committed to upholding the highest standards of workmanship and service for all of our projects.
