So, you’re beginning to realize that your home may need some new windows and a new door.
Maybe you went through the home spring check-up list in our previous blog and realized that your windows and doors could use an upgrade.
Windows and doors are an essential part of every home and are one of the first things people see when they arrive at your home. Windows and doors also boost the curb appeal of your house, so ensuring you choose the right company is imperative.
Let’s take a look at some things you should look for when choosing a windows and doors company.
Do Some Research
Before rushing to choose the first windows and doors company that appears on Google, do a bit of research. Here’s a few questions you should answer before choosing a company:
- How long has the company been in business?
- Do they seem reputable?
- Will they provide references?
- Do they have positive reviews?
- How has their communication been with you thus far? Avoid companies that don’t respond back to you or avoid answering questions.
Another important consideration: their reviews.
Which leads us into our next question…
Do They Appear To Have a Good Reputation?
Windows are a significant purchase. Poor quality windows can lead to a drafty home, leaks and leaves the possibility of bugs and other critters being able to enter your home. Choosing a reliable, trustworthy window company will ensure that your windows last for years!
When you have a company in mind, take a look at their website. Do they appear to be well established? Are there testimonials on their site? Do they have generally positive reviews on Google and on their Facebook page? Naturally, not every review you see will be a positive one, but if there are more negative than positive, that’s a sign to avoid that company.
How’s Their Product Selection?
Quality replacement windows can last a long time if you choose the right products. Good quality windows can last up to 30 years, whereas low grade windows can last around ten to fifteen years. What kind of products does the company offer? Additionally, do they offer a warranty?
Do They Have A Showroom?
When you’re thinking of replacing your windows or your doors, you want to see what your options are and you most-likely want to see it in person prior to purchase.
A reputable windows and doors company should have a showroom to display their products.
While a lot of showrooms are closed right now due to the pandemic, once things begin to re-open again, schedule a visit. Some companies even offer online tours of their showroom so that you can take a sneak peek! Pay close attention to how you’re greeted during customer service calls or when you’re able to visit a showroom.
The Company’s History
Replacing your windows is not only an investment in your home, but it also increases your home’s value. As such, it can be costly to replace all the windows in your home. You’ll need a reputable, reliable company who can get the job done efficiently. Look for a company with experience.
