Today, finding residential window services for brand-new replacement windows is easier than ever. One quick Internet search will likely connect you to a long list of contractors in your local area. The problem is, for every dozen or so reputable window companies, there will be one or two unscrupulous ones you need to watch out for.
Screening your contractors carefully can help you avoid falling victim to these scammers. However, this is easier said than done. Here are a few tips from our trustworthy window professionals at Renewal by Andersen® of Rapid City on how to make sure you’re dealing with a good company.
Check the Better Business Bureau
It’s highly unlikely that a scam window installation company will be listed with the BBB. Even then, the chances of the same company earning a rating of A+ with a clean track record of customer satisfaction are remote. Look up potential candidates on the BBB website and check their history to learn more about how they conduct their business.
Look Out for Questionable Prices
It’s a common tactic of unscrupulous window contractors to offer their products and services at a considerably lower price than most other companies. Like other home improvement products, replacement windows often follow pricing standards, which means their prices will not be too far off from each other. If your contractor is offering their services at a very low price, it’s definitely a huge red flag.
Limited Time Offers
Any good replacement window contractor knows that there is a lot of thought and consideration that goes into replacing a window. If your contractor is pressuring you to “sign today,” take it as a big warning sign. Playing on your emotions and giving you little to no time to weigh things carefully is a common strategy employed by scammers.
