About Me

Hiring and Communicating with a Home Cleaning Service

Thanks for stopping by my website. My name is Annabelle Collins. My husband and I live in a large house with our two teenage children. We’re fortunate in that we’re able to have a cleaning service come and clean on a weekly basis. In the past, I found that it was difficult for me to exert myself when it came to hiring and communicating with our cleaning service. I’ve never been very authoritative, and that shone through in a not good way. I wanted things to be done in a certain way, but found it difficult to ask for what I wanted. I have come to realize that in order for the service to do the job I want to be done, I have to ask for it to happen. I doubt that I’m alone in the fact that this is difficult, and want to share my experience and growth.

Here's What The Windows Dealer You Decide To Work With Should Be Able To Do For You

by Vicki Burns

Buying new windows for a home is serious business. Not only do windows work to protect the house from outdoor elements, but they make a big impact on the look and feel of the home overall. There are many great styles and designs on the market to choose from, all you must do is find a reliable dealer to work with. Here are a few important things that the dealer you choose to work with should be able to do for you: 

An Initial Home Inspection

One important thing your windows dealer should do is come to your home and inspect all your windows before even talking about the kinds of windows you should replace your old ones with. An inspection will allow your dealer to identify things such as the sizes of your windows, the condition of your framing, and the energy efficiency of your house overall. Only after making such identifications can they provide you with window recommendations that will best accommodate your home and meet your expectations in terms of design and performance. Getting recommendations from your dealer will help you avoid choosing windows that will not perform the way you expect or fail to give your home the look you are going for.

An Efficient Installation Process

Another thing your window dealer should be able to offer is an efficient installation process. It should not take days for the installation team to remove your old windows and install the new ones, and the process should not interfere with your family's life in any way. Make sure that your dealer can get the installation job done in just a day or two so that your household can move on with minimal impact on things like indoor temperatures.

Old Material Removal                        

What will happen to your old windows once the new ones have been installed? This should not be a problem for you to deal with. Your windows dealer should be more than happy to remove all the old windows and the discarded materials before they finish the job. You should be left with a clean home full of new windows and no sign of the old windows. If the windows cannot be reused, you may have to pay a small removal fee. However, if the windows are salvageable, your dealer might pay you a small fee for getting to take them back to their warehouse for refurbishment and resale.
