If you have had a quote for double-glazing, you will be well aware that changing your windows and doors will be a big investment. Naturally, if you are going to be spending thousands of pounds you want to be sure that you will not be wasting your money.
It is easy to find out from the sales person how much double-glazing will cost for your home or premises. However, to make the right purchasing decision you need to know far more than just the price.
You need to find out if the firm you are thinking of using offers the following –
Value for money
Good quality doors and windows fitted by professionals
Good customer service with help to resolve any issues
A guarantee that the firm will actually honour in full
Most firms promise all of this, but not all of them actually deliver on those promises. The best way to find out which firms really do offer the above is to read reviews written by people who have recently had double-glazing installed.
Forums Provide Invaluable Information
These reviews can really be a mine of useful information. Take for example an Everest double glazing review thread on a money saving forum or home decor forum. Here you can ask other people questions like whether they offer good value for money or if there are any other products they recommend.
If the forum is a busy one you will start to see answers appear after just a couple of hours. Within a day or two, you will have enough information to make an informed decision.
Use more than One Source
As well as asking questions on forums, we recommend reading double glazing reviews. Some of these reviews go into great detail. They cover things you may not have thought about such as how easy it is to clean a particular model or how easy it is to open a particular type of window with arthritic hands. Alternatively, try looking for recommendations into local providers from a reputable source such as the Glass and Glazing Federation.
If you are spending thousands on windows, we think it is worthwhile taking an hour or two to get a bit more information. Hopefully, this article has given you some ideas of where to get information that you can actually rely upon.
