Choosing a Double Glazing Company

The following tips can help you to go make the right choice and find a company that is reliable and experienced, when choosing a double glazing company.

Reputation

Spending some time reading customer reviews online, and comments from both happy and dissatisfied customers is one of the best ways to weed out the disreputable double glazing companies. You may want to avoid a company that has many unhappy customers and negative comments, although you should realistically expect all companies to have at least a few unhappy customers.

Accreditation

The Glass and Glazing Federation came up with the double glazing industry standard, along with assistance from the government. Look for a double glazing company that belongs to FENSA, the fenestration self assessment scheme. Before you decide on any company, make sure they belong to this body, which is widely considered to be the industry standard, and membership can help prevent you from working with a rogue tradesman.

Local Company

When you work with a locally based double glazing company, communication is much easier and more efficient than with one based across the country. A local company is also more likely to proved quality workmanship and use quality materials.

Brand Names

Inferior brand names that you may not be familiar with are often used by unscrupulous companies in an effort to cut costs and make more money. Unfortunately, as these products aren’t reliable and won’t last as long as others, it can actually cost you more in the long run. If you are planning to use a particular double glazing company, find out if they use good quality and well known aluminium and UPVC products in their installation process. You want and expect to have high quality materials used, if you are paying for these costlier and better known brands.

Value Or Cost

Choose a double glazing company that has a competitive pricing structure, allowing you to compare overall packages and their cost and features. Of course, you should expect to be given a free and no obligation quote by any reliable company, allowing you to get a clear idea of the work that will be carried out and how much it will cost you. Avoid a company offering very low or very high bids.

A reputable double glazing company puts their customers first and will answer any questions or concerns that customers may have. Once you know what to look for, choosing a double glazing company is a lot easier.
