How to Choose a Home Improvement Provider, Part 4: Reviews & Established BrandsJune 22, 2017
Selecting a home improvement provider is an important decision. Choose the wrong person, and you could be putting your home and your money at risk. As we wrap up our series on choosing a provider, we’d like to discuss two additional elements that consumers should consider before making a decision: online reviews and established brands.
Examine Online Reviews
Despite all the money businesses put into marketing and advertising, when consumers choose which companies to do business with, word of mouth still reigns supreme. This is because they trust the experiences of other consumers much more than the promises and marketing material of a business looking to make money. One of the great things about the internet is that a few keystrokes can bring up dozens of online reviews. Before choosing a home improvement provider, be sure to carefully read reviews of the business on its website. This will give you a good idea of the company’s pricing, the quality of its work, how customers are treated and the accuracy of estimates.
In addition, consider more than just pricing. Think about which company would provide the most value for your investment in your home.
Go With Known, Trusted Brands
It’s important to consider not only the quality of a home improvement company’s work, but also their products. Select a company that installs and stands behind well-known, trusted brands with a track record of solid durability and performance. No matter how many positive reviews a home improvement provider may have, if they don’t back up the products they install, those reviews aren’t worth much. Here at Renewal by Andersen of Northeast PA, we make standing behind our products a priority. Not only do we provide professional installation and superior customer service, we also back our replacement windows and patio doors with a Fully Transferable Limited Warranty.
