I recently began renovations on yet another fix and flip project. This property in particular was in desperate need of some replacement windows. This is a quite common update that the majority of my projects require. Many of my friends are new to flipping homes and were wondering how to choose a quality replacement company. Over the years, I have found a few important things to consider when subcontracting work on a home and found my own personal favorite company. Here are my best tips for finding a quality window company!
Many replacement companies can be fly by night organizations that do not stick around for long. Avoid dealing with companies that may perform poor quality work or sell faulty product. There is nothing worse than a company that does poor quality installation and then simply disappears in a few months. You will be left with a damaged product and no one to stand behind it. Instead be sure to pick a company that has established itself well within your community, over the course of several years. It is also helpful to read customer testimonials/reviews and speak with locals to determine if the business has a good reputation in the area.
Be Certain of What You’re Paying For
Be sure to research whether the company you are considering has appropriate certifications and accreditations to back them up. It is a good policy to ensure you are getting what you are paying for. A salesperson can say anything in order to make a profitable sale. Protect yourself by asking to see proof that the windows you are planning to purchase are indeed certified with respected labels, such as Energy Star and the National Fenestration Rating Council.
Check Out the Warranty
Before you make your final purchase be sure to find out if the company will stand behind their installation and product. Ask about the manufacturer’s warranty offered on the replacement window, as well as any warranty the company itself offers on your installation. It is important to choose a company that will fully back their work so that your investment is protected even if someone makes a mistake. Additionally, it is wise to seek information regarding having the issue handled if a problem does occur.
After years of flipping homes and trying multiple different replacement companies, I can say without a shadow of a doubt that 303 Windows is the best by far! This company stands behind their work, has an established reputation amongst the community, and has been in business since 1995! I trust this company completely to provide a quality job for every replacement window I need. They provide excellent service and affordable prices! If you live in Colorado, why not give them a try for your next project?!
