5 Questions for Prospective Commercial Glass Contractors

Absolute Glass LLC suggests that you evaluate several commercial glass specialists before assigning someone to the job. The glass contractor will give you a bid listing the offered products and prices, including service costs. To understand if each contractor is qualified to do the job and if it will suit your style, ask them the following questions.

Binswanger’s Solution:

  1. Made in the USA from lightweight, high-strength glass, acrylic, or polycarbonate
  2. Custom-built to your needs
  3. Free-standing, mounted, or hanging
  4. Standard and custom sizes available
  5. Temporary and permanent options
  6. Pass-throughs, holes, and transaction windows
  7. Fast lead times Table dividers, office barriers, vertical barriers, cashier panels, manicure table shields, food service barriers, desktop shields, screw-in dividers, and urinal dividers.

#1. If so, what is your company’s name, including credentials and proof of insurance?

This is the most critical question when searching for a commercial glass specialist. You can avoid liability by ensuring your commercial glass contractor is licensed and qualified; proof of insurance will protect your business.

2. Provide me with a list of past clients?

Your commercial glass contractor should be a seasoned professional. You should be able to contact them with a list if they have any referrals. You will gain a better understanding of their work by asking for referrals. It would help if you also asked for photographs of the completed work. Many business owners now check Google for reviews and ratings. Online reviews can help narrow down your choices. A low score doesn’t automatically knock someone out, but it is essential that you carefully read the reviews. You should also check the response of the company to these negative reviews. This can tell you a lot about the commercial glass contractor that tries to correct their mistakes.

#3: How can I get an itemized estimate?

It is important to ask upfront. You will get a detailed look at the project with itemized estimates, which is crucial for large commercial projects. You can work back and back and forth. An experienced commercial glass contractor should not have problems breaking down the project. If you have to make changes, it is a good idea to have a detailed estimate ready before the project begins.

#4: What’s the timeline for the project?

Commercial glass projects can be very time-consuming, from the design to the installation. A timeline can help you plan the time it will take to install exterior windows or specialized glass. You will also know when the glass will be removed.

#5 – Do you offer any warranty for your installation or other maintenance services?

Most glass contractors offer a warranty. Some warranties are for one year, while others last a little longer. The warranty length is not as important as the company’s willingness and ability to honor its guarantee. Referring to customers is a great way to learn how commercial glass contractors treat their clients. No matter which contractor you choose to work with, be sure that they stand behind their work. Also, be sure to read the warranties provided by glass manufacturers. Both promises should be understood. Ask for a copy of each window product’s warranty and a contract with the selected contractor’s warranty.
