Re: Finding a Good Contractor
a few points to make
in regards to the house being more energy efficient, windows and doors make up only about 15-20% of the wall surface. you have to take into consideration the amount of insulation in the walls and whether or not a vapor barrier is present just under the drywall, this is a major factor in how air tight the house is.
with window replacement, going with a insert will make things slightly better but going with a fully replaced winow using a construction window you'll see better results.
as to looking for contractors on the better business bereu's site, good luck...... companys have to pay to get put on their list as a good company, the more you pay the better the rating. i've worked for companys who were with the bbb and had great ratings but did mediocre work. all that will happen with hiring a company who is a member is the final price tag for you will be higher. its seen as nothign more than a marketing tool within the construction industry it has nothing to do with the final product
