Below, we have compiled a list of tips that we hope will help you to zero in on the most reputable replacement window companies in the city.
Factors to Consider When Requesting Quotes for Replacement Windows
Before you ask a company for a quotation, consider the following factors and ask any questions you may need to ask, in order to ascertain whether they are a reputable, reliable supplier and installer.
- Previous Installations – The best way to establish whether a particular company is capable of delivering on their promises is to inspect previous installations they have completed. In some cases this will require permission from the owners of the properties in question but in other cases, you may be able to simply drive slowly past the houses to see the condition of the replacement windows they feature.
- Testimonials – A company in good standing that has been operating in Toronto and the surrounding area for a number of years is sure to be able to provide you with copies of testimonials they have received from satisfied customers. If this is not the case, it is probably best to cross them off your list and look for other suppliers in the area that can.
- Free Estimates – A reputable firm should not charge you for putting together an estimate. When you ask them how much the replacement windows you are interested in are likely to cost, they should be happy to provide you with a free estimate that is both accurate and detailed.
- Online Reviews – If you want to research a company before you approach them, you can search for online reviews that other customers have written. However, the absence of any such reviews is not necessarily a sign that the company in question is unreliable. If you cannot find any reviews on the internet, you may like to move on to the next suggestion.
- Asking for Personal Recommendations – Friends, relatives, and work colleagues in Toronto are all possible sources of information when you are looking for reputable firms that sell and install replacement windows. Make a note of any they recommend and be sure to ask those companies for quotations.
- Asking Awkward Questions – When you first get in touch with a company that you wish to request a quotation from, make a point of asking a few difficult questions to see how they respond. A reputable firm that is focused on customer service will be more than happy to provide you with any information you require whereas one that is only interested in turning a quick profit will probably be reluctant to answer all of your questions.
