Help please, who do I ask?

I’m looking for someone to remove and replace the silicone around my front and back door and the window at my house.
My question is, do I find a handyman or do I contact a window company? I’m finding it hard to figure out whom I ask.
Any suggestions would be amazing!
Thanks so much!

"A handy man can do the job but using silicone is an art form and a window fitter will be more experienced using silicone and getting a neater finish"

"Hi an experienced fitter is a good idea but don’t fall for the company jargon, if you try it your self masking tape both areas try a 5_7mm nozzle and use a wet wipe in a downward direction aster applying, best of luck,

You should not pay more than £25 by a handyman."

"Whilst a handyman can do the job effectively I am sure in many cases.
A window installation / door installation company that carries out repairs carries out this type of work all the time therefore a window installation / repair company would be best suited to this work."

"Hello Kristi. You could ask either a window company or a handyman. Although I don’t think a major window company would entertain the job but a smaller company may. I myself as a small company would quote you for this job depending on location of address."
