Whether your existing windows are damaged, mouldy, single-glazed or just ugly, investing in new windows can help to make your home a more comfortable and secure place to live as well as a more aesthetically pleasing one. However, there are lots of window companies out there, so how do you know which one is reputable and can be relied on to do a good job?
The most modern windows should have a lifespan of about 30 to 40 years, but if the installation is not to a good standard, they will require replacing much sooner. Therefore, finding the right windows company couldn’t be more important. With this in mind, here is some expert advice to help you make the right decision.
Experience Is Key
When you’re choosing a company to supply and install new windows in your home, you should look for one that has a lot of experience in the field. You should look into the length of time that they’ve been operator and the extent of their experience. Look for a company that is manufacturer approved as this will give you peace of mind that you are making a good choice.
Reputable window companies will always offer a warranty when they install a window. This will protect you from having to pay out for any window repairs while the warranty is in date. You should be looking for a warranty of ten years – any less than this and you may doubt the quality of the windows that the company provides.
Check Out Trust Schemes
It’s always worth checking out your chosen window installation company on trust schemes like Trust Pilot and Checkatrade. This will give you a good idea as to whether the company that you have chosen can be relied upon to do a good job.
Look At Testimonials And Reviews
Many window installation companies have testimonials and reviews on their website, and many more will have independent reviews on third party websites. Bear in mind that more people are likely to report poor service than an excellent experience, but it’s still a good way of getting a feel for the company in question and whether they may be potentially problematic.
Ask Your Neighbours
If your neighbours have recently had windows installed in their home, it’s always a good idea to ask them which company they used and whether they would recommend them. This will help you to feel reassured that you’ve made the right decision since you will have already seen the quality of their work. If this isn’t possible, try to find the contact details of some customers of the company of your choice and call them to find out their opinions about the work they had done.
