10 essential questions to ask any supplier & installer of replacement windows
When you want to replace your windows, it’s important to find out as much information as possible before you begin. A well-planned and thought out project is always more likely to be a complete success. The first thing to do is find a reputable and professional company. With so many window installers out there, it can become a minefield.
A good way to choose a window supplier and installer is by looking for two essential criteria. Firstly, choose a company who manufacture and install their products. This helps to ensure product quality. Secondly, look for positive customer reviews. Impartial recommendations speak volumes for a company’s professionalism. Remember, an unhappy customer is more likely to leave a negative review, so positive customer testimonials are testament to a company’s service and professionalism.
Once you’ve decided on a company, you need to start asking questions. Here are 10 essential questions to ask any supplier and installer of replacement windows.
1. How much will it cost?
First and foremost, it’s imperative to budget accordingly. All suppliers and installers should provide free comprehensive quotes before any installation begins.
2. What is the energy efficiency rating of your windows?
An increasingly important factor for modern homeowners. Rated ‘A+14’, Majestic uPVC windows will help to create a warmer, more cost-effective home.
3. Can I view the products before choosing?
A showroom is both a great showcase for a company’s products and a place where a customer can speak to an industry professional face to face.
4. How long will the installation take?
A realistic timescale is important so that you can organise your life around the work and limit any disruption.
5. Do you provide finance?
Linked to question number one. Always make sure that you can afford all payments that you agree to.
6. Who are you accredited by?
Third party industry accreditation gives customers peace of mind that they are working with a professional company.
7. Are your products guaranteed?
Another way to provide peace of mind in the event of unforeseen problems.
8. How secure are your products?
Home security is an important factor to consider. Secure windows will protect your home from attempts at forced entry and save you money on reduced insurance premiums.
9. What options are available?
A wide choice of products is an attractive feature for many customers. This is particularly the case when you want bespoke windows such as coloured or unusually shaped.
10. Have you completed any installations nearby?
A local company will have local knowledge which is a positive point for any customer. You can also have a look at the quality of any installations in the local area.
