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.
