Trying to find a window supplier who will not let you down should not be something that puts the fear of God into you. But it is easily understandable why some homeowners are incredibly anxious about choosing a double glazing specialist as there are still the odd individuals and companies out there who are after nothing but a fast buck.
So that you don’t fall into their trap and get left out of pocket, we have put together 3 handy pointers you should follow to locate a dependable window installer:
Do a background check
Check out the credentials of the window installers in your area. Find out how long they have been trading and speak to family and friends to find out if there is anyone they would recommend. Also ask to see any testimonials left by previous customers. Some firms may even let you visit a residence where they have completed a window installation so that you can witness their experience first-hand.
Get a few quotes
Never accept the first quote you receive. Get 3 or 4 quotes from different companies and assess them all so that you can figure out what you should be paying. If any of the quotes you receive seem too good to be true then it usually means that it is and should be ignored. You need to be totally comfortable with the final quote. A little online research will also help give you an idea of the potential cost.
Pay the conclusion of the job
Alarm bells should start ringing if an installer insists on receiving full payment before work gets underway. It is totally acceptable for them to produce an invoice at the outset, but never should you have to hand over your cash until all, or at least some, of the work has been done.
