A Few Things You Should Do When Searching for a Window Installer
Get a Warranty
First and foremost, get a copy of the company’s warranty. Many companies will not even cover the actual installation work in their warranties. Unfortunately, more than 50% of future problems for the homeowner are directly attributed to the install.
In many cases, the reason that other companies won’t tell you about their warranty is simple–they can’t afford for you to read it. Most companies will not even cover the actual installation work. At the end of the day, wouldn’t you prefer to have your work covered? Getting a warranty means you know exactly what you can expect and that’s invaluable.
View a Copy of the Business License and Insurance Plan
Ask to see a copy of their business license and insurance. Due to rising expenses in the home-improvement industry, many companies are under-insured or have no insurance at all. So guess who is first in line to face legal action should a worker get hurt on your property and the company’s insurance is no good? That person would be you! Pretty scary, huh?
If the company you are considering has a business license and are properly insured, they should have no reason not to show you. Just ask because it is certainly not worth losing your home to a lawsuit, and when it comes right down to it, you want to know that the company you’re working with is reputable or you could get taken for a ride.
Beware Fake Discounts
Watch out for indicators that a company doesn’t have your best interest in mind. Look out for multiple “make believe” price drops or discounts, or the offering of “good, better, or best” services that indicate a willingness to compromise on quality.
What we mean by that is that you should be on the lookout for different grades of quality in their product and their work. If they’re willing to compromise, you could end up with a less than ideal outcome. Both of these are strictly fabrications. These key indicators are nothing but smoke and mirrors. These are individuals that have no interest in the well being of your family, property or your budget. Stay alert and you should be just fine.
