Posted on August 9, 2018

Window Replacement Davenport

Deciding to make any major investment in your home can be stressful. There are many choices to be made - the most significant being which company to use to complete your project. The home improvement industry is overcrowded with businesses vying to get your attention - and your money. We know that making the decision to replace your windows is not one that can be taken lightly. How, then, can you know you've chosen the right company to work on your home?

Thankfully, there are some key factors to look for that can help you weed through all the not-so-great companies and settle on the one that will give you the most value. 

Reviews and Testimonials

As any small business owner knows, the tried and true method of word of mouth is still the best advertising and marketing technique. Checking out what others have to say who have already used the company is a great way to get a true view of the business. Not only do reviews provide great raw data about how the company acts, they oftentimes discuss every aspect of the window replacement project, from the sales pitch to the final appraisal of the work. Those companies that have many positive reviews can typically be trusted with working on your home.

Awards

Organizations like Angie's List and the Better Business Bureau exist to give consumers peace of mind. Companies that have an A+ rating from these organizations are more likely to complete your window replacement project with efficiency while maintaining quality work. Local awards that a company has received are also indicative of a business that is worth your time. 

Certifications and Warranties

Any good window installation company will guarantee their work. This guarantee usually comes in the form of warranties. Although warranties can vary depending on the type of window you have chosen, the work of the installation itself should be covered. If the company does not trust its employees enough to guarantee their work, there isn't any reason you, as a consumer, should trust them either. 

Specifically when looking at choosing a window replacement company, you should determine if they use windows that are certified. Any truly certified window will have a label on it from Energy Star and the NFRC (National Fenestration Rating Council). If the company you are looking to employ doesn't have windows with these ratings, then you should move on to another one.

Professional Installers

Companies that use temporary day labor or subcontractors also shouldn't be on your list of potential installers. Those businesses that can retain their installers can hold themselves to a higher standard. We ensure each of our installation professionals abides by a contractor standards guide. This way we can assure you that quality professionals are working in and around your home. We also can guarantee consistency among our installers.
