CHOOSING YOUR WINDOW CONTRACTOR WISELY

June 02, 2017 0

When shopping for replacement windows, it is relatively easy to choose a window style and an aesthetic goal. Want traditional? Check. Prefer contemporary? Check. Noise and element protection? Check. But, what about choosing the company to which you will entrust your Toronto, ON, home?

At Brock Doors and Windows, we understand this dilemma. Within our homes are our most prized possessions: our families, our pets, our belongings, and all our memories. We do not frivolously allow anyone inside, right? Right! So, how do you choose the right contractor to install the windows you want for your home upgrade?

Ask around
Are you new to the area? Ask your coworkers who they have chosen for a window repair or installation. Don’t be shy! You can ask your doctor, your pharmacist, your children’s schoolteacher, or the guy in the deli with whom you have begun to become familiar. These are your fellow Toronto neighbors!

Experience
Looking into a Toronto window contractor could be as simple as reviewing the company’s length of time in business. In general, contracting companies prove their worth if they have “made it” past the first five years. On that note, with Brock Doors and Windows, you are getting decades of experience (we’ve been in business since 1991)!

Ask questions; a LOT of questions
Never let anyone make you feel like there are too many questions you want to have answered before signing the dotted line. Your home and your future satisfaction rely on you to make good, informed decisions. Here are some question prompts for you:

  • Are you licensed? (“Yes” is the only acceptable answer)
  • What types of insurance do you carry to protect my home and yourself?
  • May I have a list of references?
  • What is the projected timeline for this project?
  • What’s your (or your company’s) track record on finishing a job within the projected timeframe?
  • Will you provide me daily updates?
  • Do you guarantee your work?
  • What is the work schedule going to look like each day?
  • How many installations has your company completed (Brock has over 70,000 under its belt!)

Check online reviews
We live in a digital age—take advantage! The internet is an excellent resource for gathering a general idea of others’ experiences with a certain contractor. Try these well-known resources:

Awards
A company with accolades is usually a company worth utilizing. This is not to say there aren’t very well respected and honorable businesses out there which have not yet earned an award or recognition of some sort. But, for a company to stand out among its competitors is no easy feat. Here at Brock Doors and Windows, we are very proud to hold the following awards/recognitions:

  • Six Reader’s Choice Awards
  • Four Home Stars: Best of Awards
  • A Consumer’s Choice Award
  • Membership with Guild Quality
  • A Mark of Excellence: Top Choice Award

At Brock Doors and Windows, we strive to give the very best to our clients: excellent service, quality products, affordable options, and beautiful replacement windows. We can’t wait to be a part of your Toronto, Ontario windows replacement project!
