How to Choose a Windows & Doors Company You Can Trust
Windows and doors are important pieces in the framework of your home. They affect everything from your family’s safety and security to your comfort, energy bills, and even the aesthetic appeal of your home. That’s why it’s important to choose a company you can trust when it comes to replacing your home’s windows and doors.
Many people have never been faced with the decision before and are unsure where to start. After all, if you choose a good company to begin with you may only have to decide once. But in order to help those faced with the decision now, we’ve compiled the following list of questions to help guide you to making the right choice:
1) Are they local?
Locally owned and operated companies have a vested interest in keeping their community happy. Their business relies on maintaining a solid reputation in the area in which they operate, and that can only be achieved through great customer service and high-quality products. Moreover, if they have a long history in the community, that bodes well for their continuity and levels of customer satisfaction over the years.
Another advantage to choosing an Ottawa-based windows and doors company for the job is that you can likely find a family member or friend nearby who has dealt with the company before and who can provide you with a reference from their experience. A positive endorsement from someone you trust is a good sign you can trust the Ottawa windows and doors company as well.
2) Do they offer a solid warranty?
When it comes to choosing a company to replace your windows and doors be sure to choose one that offers a warranty as clear as the windows themselves. That is, make sure you understand the precise terms of the warranty issued, and what would happen should your windows or doors prove defective a couple years down the line. Who made your windows? Where were they manufactured? Will that company still be around 10, 15, or 20 years from now?
In general, don’t settle for anything less than a comprehensive lifetime guarantee against any and all manufacturing defects. Saving a little money on your doors and windows upfront won’t be worth it in the long run if you have to pay to replace them down the line.
3) How do the costs compare?
When looking to buy a new home, it’s generally advised to choose neither the most expensive nor least expensive home on the block. The same lesson holds true when selecting a windows and doors company. The cheapest option could signal a lower quality product and/or installation, whereas a job priced on the other end of the spectrum could be overpriced for the value you’ll receive. Look for a company that strikes the right balance between quality and cost, primed to deliver great value to its customers.
