When it comes to fitting windows, finding the right service for carrying out the installation is essential. Failing to choose the right supplier may lead to a number of problems from poor fittings that could be downright dangerous to doing installations incorrectly, which cost more to be corrected. The bottom line is that you want your windows fitted within budget, on time and to a high standard. To do this, you have to do your homework. Let’s see what can be done:
- Get referrals
How will you choose one when you don’t have any options? The first thing is to get referrals from friends and family as this is the fastest way of drawing up a shortlist of possible options. Since they have their ‘seal of approval’, you may be able to find a quality fitter for your needs.
- Do your research
Bear in mind that you shouldn’t choose window fitters only based on recommendations. You also need to do your research, which you can easily do on the internet. Take a look at the website of the top window fitters, look at their reviews and other details and see what kind of reputation they have in the market.
- Get everything in writing
After you have shortlisted a few options, you can now whittle down your choices even further. Now, you talk to your potential window fitters and check their rates and availability. Get all proposals and quotes in writing and go over the small print carefully.
- Don’t forget insurance
Before you sign any contracts, you should ask the window fitter about their insurance details and also ask them to provide references. Be sure to follow up and talk to these people and ask them about their experience. If they are not ready to provide proof, you need to look elsewhere. If they do, you can go ahead with them.
