If you have ever embarked upon a home window replacement project, you know that it can be equally exciting and stressful—with the potential to be only stressful. If you budget poorly, manage your time unwisely, fail to learn about the different window pros and cons, or choose an installation company with unfavorable ratings/business practices…you will quickly find yourself regretting what should have been an exciting renovation!
Just thinking about it is stressful! And, for those of you who have yet to undergo any sort of home renovation, you’re probably scared now. But there’s good news…your next project can be enjoyable!
At Discount Windows & Doors, we know what we’re doing! We’ve been in this business for ten years and have helped many Oahu residents streamline their projects with beautiful, quality windows. Follow our tips to learn how to make your next project an enjoyable one:
- Choose the right window installation company
This takes just a little bit of work on your end to ensure you are satisfied with the outcome. Don’t worry, choosing the right company is easy. First, ask around! Someone in your life has replaced their home windows: your neighbor, coworker, best friend, sister, barista, fellow surfer—someone you know has done this before. So, find out what others’ experiences have been. Who did they work with and why? What did they like and dislike about their window replacement project and what would they have done differently? Would they go back to the same company and why or why not? Next, check out some company websites, testimonies, and online reviews. You can learn a lot about how the company presents itself, the staff values, and what total strangers have to say about their experiences. Lastly, call around and check out some showrooms. Gauge the staff’s professionalism, friendliness, and knowledge. In doing so, you will at least be able to pick up on red flags, should they exist.
- Who has quality products?
Again, a little research on your behalf goes a long way. During an online search for local companies, jot down a few manufacturers listed. In doing so, you can compare different features that are importance to you. Note: if this kind of research begins to feel overwhelming, remember you can always ask questions about specific products/materials when you speak directly with a professional on the phone or during a showroom visit.
- Keep in mind what’s most important to you
A good company will not attempt to sell you something you don’t want or need—so be sure to know and communicate what those things are upfront. Do you have a strict budget? Is energy efficiency your priority? Is soundproofing necessary in your neighborhood? Do you love anything low maintenance? Whatever it is most important to you, be forthcoming to ensure you get what you want.
