San Rafael Replacement Windows

It is often times difficult to determine which retailer you should choose when deciding to purchase San Rafael replacement windows. There are a lot of dealers in the market today, and it can be tough to decide which one is best for you. Here are a few ideas that might assist in the decision making process.

In-Home Consultation

Some dealers of replacement windows in CA offer an in-home consultation. This is a really good benefit to you in many ways. The San Rafael in-home consultation can go a long way in clearing up your confusion; easing your mind and helping you make decisions.

When a San Rafael replacement windows consultant visits your home, he or she will be to determine first hand exactly what you need. They can walk through your home in San Rafael and look at your existing windows. While they are doing this, they can discuss with you the options available to you for California replacement windows.

If any repairs are needed prior to installation, this can be discussed at this time as well. As you can see, an installer that makes San Rafael house calls will make your life easier than one who doesn't.

That being said however, the simple fact that a San Rafael replacement windows dealer will provide an in home consultation to you is not enough for you to give them your business. While an in home consultation is definitely helpful, beware of companies that try to pressure you into using them to install your San Rafael replacement windows just because they were nice enough to come to your San Rafael home. You are under no obligation to patronize any one company until and unless a contract is signed. If you feel pressure to sign anything during the consultation this is a good sign that you should take your business elsewhere.

Of course, this does not happen very often. Most California replacement windows retailers are reputable and would never dream of trying to pressure and or cheat their customers. This is just something to be aware of in case the one you call happens to be the exception to the rule.

Consultation isn't Everything

While an in home meeting is a great start, the San Rafael replacement windows dealer has to do more than this to earn your business. The first thing the dealer must do is earn your trust. How does a CA company earn the trust of a new customer?

The best way is to prove that they have the trust of their previous customers in the San Rafael area. Customer reviews can go a long way in telling you whether or not a San Rafael company is worth your business. You can usually find reviews for any California replacement windows company on the internet. However, another good thing to do is to ask the dealer for references. They can provide you contact information for prior customers that will give you feedback from their experience.

The Two W's

Two very important things you can get from any CA replacement windows retailer that will help ease your mind regarding hiring them to perform the job are "Warranty" and "Writing". Any reputable installer will warranty their work. While your San Rafael replacement windows will come with a manufacturer's warranty, you will need to get an installation warranty as well. Most (if not all) manufacturers will consider their warranty void if the installation was done improperly. If your chosen retailer will has not guaranteed their work, you are at risk of having to foot the bill for defects should they arise.

This is where the second 'W' comes in. Get it in writing. We cannot stress this enough. Get it in writing. Get everything in writing. Get your cost estimate in writing. Get your list of materials in writing. Get an outline of the project in writing. Document, document document! Additionally, If the cost of the San Rafael replacement windows or the work changes at all during the course of the project, make sure you get that in writing too. Another good idea is to make sure someone in authority at the San Rafael replacement windows retailers signs everything you sign. Get copies of everything for your records.

Additionally, you will need to get their guaranty in writing. As the old adage goes, a guaranty is only as good as the paper it is written on. Be diligent and consistent with this. You do not want to run into any problems when they being installing your San Rafael replacement windows.
