Choosing the right company to supply and fit your new double glazing can be a difficult process, and one that may leave you feeling in the dark! There are a few basic considerations though that could help with making a wise decision, and to ensure there are no regrets. Whether it’s glazing for your new windows, doors or multifold doors, the reputation of the specialist you opt for is crucial. You need to feel that you can trust them to be honest and that they have the right attitude.
1. Reputation Matters
This is a biggie, you should always take the time to discover reviews and testimonials from other customers. Some people cringe about this, but it is quite reasonable to ask the company if they can provide evidence of satisfied customers. After all you are spending good money, and often feel like you are taking a gamble.
2. Check The Company’s Accreditations
Check that they are FENSA registered, as this organisation is trusted by local authorities, home owners, governments and the industry in general. FENSA represents the industry standard when it comes to replacement windows and doors. The double glazing company should have documentary evidence that they have the required certification.
3. High Quality Products
The company you choose needs to use high quality glazing products from leading manufacturers, meaning a long lasting investment for you. Some unscrupulous companies cut corners, resulting in the need for many repairs and maintenance after installation.
4. Attractive Warranties
Most decent installation companies offer a significant guarantee of at least 10 years. Make sure you know what is included before you agree.
5. Double Glazing Security
Ensure that your new double glazing products include high performance security features to protect your family and home against criminal intrusion.
6. A Experienced Company is Best
Always get a written quotation including all work proposed along with a price breakdown, and while very high prices are suspicious, extremely low prices are worrying too. They more often than not indicate inferior products and services! It’s a good idea to see an example of the work if possible, perhaps in a showroom.
