When you are planning a new window installation, it’s always a good idea to work with a reputable contractor who you can trust to get the job done. As you do research, make sure to keep an eye out for installers who offer cheap products and services and employ manipulative sales tactics and scams just to make a quick profit. Examples of such include:
Windows Offered at One-Time-Only Prices
As a homeowner looking to get a full window replacement, you may encounter a few sales representatives offering different products at seemingly attractive prices. However, if they say that it’s only good for today, don’t fall for it. This is just another sales tactic that forces you to decide whether or not you should work with them immediately. They’re attempting to convince you to take advantage of the “low” price, but this isn’t the best way to find quality products for your home. Remember, trustworthy window installers are more than willing to give you enough time to consider your options.
As you browse through different windows, you’ll sometimes get offered a “buy one, get one” deal. They may even be valid offers, but don’t always assume that they’re worth the price. This is because they’re likely to have hidden fees that come out as soon as you purchase them. Companies tend to lower the price just to make the product more attractive to potential buyers, so make sure to look at the deal closely, especially if you’re a first-time buyer.
Windows Offered at Unusually Low Prices
Even the most expensive windows won’t always provide the best quality. However, that doesn’t mean they’re on the same level of quality as windows offered for cheap. When you encounter windows that are priced much lower than the rest of the market, it may be too good to be true. This only means they’re hiding other costs that won’t appear until later in the window replacement process. You’ll be forced to shell out more money than planned, so to avoid this, make sure to ask a lot of questions and read the fine print if you find a suspiciously good deal.
To avoid window replacement scams, make sure you read customer reviews, secure referrals from friends, family and colleagues, and get everything in writing.
