Tips to Help You Avoid Window Replacement Scams

A window replacement project is an important investment. As such, you’d want only the best high-quality windows, a reasonably priced installation and a partnership with a trustworthy windows installer. At Renewal by Andersen® of Southwest Missouri, we have years of industry experience and the commitment to providing top-notch customer service.

Not every company, however, has what it takes to ensure customer satisfaction. Preying on homeowners who don’t know any better, they either have manipulative sales tactics or take on the aggressive approach of asking for payment in advance, but then do shoddy work. In today’s post, we provide tips on how you can avoid window replacement scams.

Obtain Recommendations

Beware of contractors who contact you unsolicited. Even if you are offered a big discount or an incentive, don’t be swayed into hiring their services. The best way to select the right company for your project is to obtain recommendations from friends, neighbors or relatives.

Read Customer Reviews

Before you hire a contractor that offers energy-efficient windows, check its Better Business Bureau (BBB) profile. You’d be provided with the business details as well as reviews and customer reviews it has incurred.

Review Credentials

Check with your state if the contractor is licensed or registered. It should give you peace of mind knowing that you are dealing with a legitimate window replacement company. Again, steer clear of those that don’t have any licenses to operate.

Get Everything in Writing

Home improvement scammers often ask you to pay a substantial amount before work commences. Don’t agree to it; instead, ask them to put everything into writing, including the estimate and the work agreement. Begin your search anew if the contractor doesn’t provide you with anything.

As a BBB-accredited business, you can be sure Renewal by Andersen of Southwest Missouri will provide you excellent services. Call (417) 351-2801, or fill out our contact form to request a free in-home consultation.

"Excellent service and product! They checked in with me every few weeks while we were waiting for the order. I was impressed with Sam, who measured my windows and headed the installation crew. He was respectful and patient with his team. They cleaned up after themselves. Before the new windows I had huge windows that didn’t open. Now I feel much safer and get better temperatures in those rooms."

"My experience with Anderson Renewal was amazing! From the first meeting with Miranda to choose my windows and doors to the installation provided by Tim and his crew was a pleasure! I just bought a home built in the 1960's that needed new windows and a new double front door with sidelights. As everyone knows Anderson Windows are great, but it was the people I interacted with from Anderson that made it such a great experience. It took three days for the windows and door to be installed and they "worked" every minute they were here. My huge front door took most of the day to install because they had to put in a new header and other improvements to make it fit! They even put up new drywall on the inside. Many people in the neighborhood have stopped by to comment on my beautiful front door! I think the crew left my house cleaner than it was before they started! Constantly cleaning up after themselves. I am thrilled with my windows and feel lucky to have met the team at Anderson."

"Very professional staff . No pressure sales. The job they do is neat and clean, no cleanup left for the owner. Communication is great. Always informed on the status of of your product, AND the tin of cookies you receive afterwards is a pleasant plus."
