If you’re thinking of improving your home with double glazing windows then you’ve come to the right place. Whatever your reason; whether you’re looking to add value to your property, maximise energy efficiency or improve thermal insulation, one goal remains the same: to use a reputable company. Why? Find out here:
Choose a Name You Can Trust
This may sound fairly obvious, but you’d be surprised by how many people search on Google for double glazing suppliers and click on the first one they lay their eyes on. Whilst this may be the easiest way to find a company that offers double glazing services, you have no idea whether they’re good or bad installers.
Be sure to find a trustworthy firm so you know that they’ll do a professional job. Alternatively, you could read reviews online; after all, there are no better reviews than from previous customers!
Rely on Word of Mouth
The best way to find a reputable company is to go off word-of-mouth recommendations. This is how the majority of good companies find work; a customer will recommend to a neighbour, who will refer the company to her sister, who will mention the double glazing supplier to her friend…you get the picture. There’s nothing more genuine than reviews straight from the horse’s mouth. Perhaps speak to friends, family and colleagues to find out if there’s a particular company they would recommend.
Join the Queue, It’s Worth the Wait
You may have to wait a little while for the company to be available, but rather than see this as a negative, see it as a huge positive. If a company is receiving lots of work, it must be doing something right! Be patient because it pays off, literally!
Verify a Company Independently
It is important to verify a good company independently. A renowned name may not mean they offer a good service but simply that they have advertised well. Always do your research.
Find Out if the Company Carries Insurance
Any reputable company will carry insurance. Why? Well, not only to protect you, but to cover their backs too. A contractor should have comprehensive liability insurance in order for you to be protected in the event of an accident. How will you know this? Well, you’ll have to do a bit of prying, and rightly so!
Ask to see the contractor’s certifications of insurance and let them know that you wish to have the valid relevant certificates sent to you by the insurance company before the job is started. Make sure you ask for proof of general liability; if you don’t hear from them again, you’ll know why.
It is up to you to decide if it is worth the risk to hire a contractor who does not carry insurance. However, we advise opting for a double glazing supplier that carries insurance. We offer an Insurance Back Guarantee here at Heath Windows.
