Whether you’re in the market for replacement windows or brand new construction windows, you don’t want to trust that job to just anyone. After all, this is your home and should be treated with care. You want to be sure that you hire the right window installation crew, but with so many window installation companies in Greensboro, how can you be sure you’ve found a good one?
The answer is by choosing carefully.
Don’t know where to start on your search for a window installation company? Before you break out the phone book or online directory, ask the people you actually know. Call your mom or ask your neighbors who they used for their last window replacement. Or you can widen the pool. We rely on the internet and social media for so much nowadays, and asking for referrals is just one more way the internet has changed our culture. Now you can sign onto Facebook and ask for recommendations, whether to your friends or the community at large.
Whoever you ask, this will allow you to form a short list of window installation companies and cuts down sizably on your work when it comes time to research. Which brings us to our next point.
Once you have a short list of window installation companies in your area, do your research. While it might seem obvious, one important starting point is to make sure that the address you find is an existing address and that the company is still in operation. Then check for a website where they lay out their services and service areas. Look at the manufacturers and suppliers they work with, and research those companies as well.
Finally, check out their references and reviews. In the window installation world, reputation is everything, and if their past customers have been less than satisfied with their service, they’ll certainly have let the world know in the form of a review. Besides checking their reviews on their website, you can view reviews on Angie’s List or Houzz, or see their rating on Better Business Bureau (BBB).
Unless every window installation company that was recommended to you has all 5-star reviews, there’s a good chance that your research has whittled down your list even further. Now to choose a winner, it’s time to get quotes.
As long as none of the companies you talk to use high pressure sales tactics (in which case you should probably avoid them anyway), it’s perfectly fine — and even encouraged — to get quotes from a few different window companies. This quote will give you an idea of how much the window installation will cost, what benefits it will offer, and how long it should take. Once you have a few to compare, you can easily see which deal is the best for you.
Getting a quote also offers you an opportunity to ask the window installation company any questions you might have, such as questions about their certification, references, or insurance. Here you can get to know the window installation company a little better. Make sure you take their service into consideration, not just their price.
