In the past, double glazing companies have gathered an unfair reputation for being untrustworthy. This is due to a few unscrupulous companies who give honest traders a bad name. The majority of double glazing companies are reliable and want to help you improve your home. It’s important when you make any major purchases or improvements to your home that you choose a trustworthy company. Let’s take a look at the ways you can spot a credible company for your home improvements.
Signs that a company can be trusted
- They don’t use pushy salespeople or tactics. You should always be given adequate time to think over a quote and not pushed into deciding then and there
- They can give you customer testimonials that you can follow up to get honest feedback about a company. Online reviews are also a great source of information
- A reliable home improvement company will have accreditations from glazing associations including FENSA and consumer watchdogs
- They offer guarantees with their products and services
- They have a showroom where you can take a look at windows, doors and conservatories up close before you commit to buying
What to do before agreeing to work
Ensure you have a wide range of quotes so you know what the average cost should be. Talk to family and friends that have used the company to hear their experiences. Ensure you visit the showroom so you can ‘try before you buy’. Walk around a conservatory and see how it would fit into your home. This also gives you the chance to talk to designers and find out everything you want to know. From the thermal performance of a window to the colour options of a composite door, ensure you’re fully informed before buying.
