As a homeowner, you need someone to rely on for the everyday stuff that pops up in the home—plumbing, landscaping, grass cutting and so on—as well as for the bigger things, like roofing, additions and remodels and, of course, window installation.
Typically, you don’t have a list of all the best contractors on hand for these projects, but we’ve got you covered. If you’re currently in the market for window replacement in Santa Fe, NM, simply follow this guide to pick the best company for your needs.
Experience and knowledge
First, you should look for a company with experience and knowledge. An experienced company is one that’s been in business for a long time—not a flash-in-the-pan organization. Beyond looking for a company that’s simply been in business for a long time, look for one that’s locally owned. You want them to retain that knowledge and skill. Locally owned businesses tend to do this better than corporate outfits, which tend to experience more employee turnover.
Additionally, you should look for someone with a variety of expertise. With glass installation, all experience compounds—skills in different types of glass installation carry over. The more varied their expertise, the more unlikely it is they’ll run into something unexpected or make an error. For the experienced installer, everything is routine.
Word-of-mouth and online reviews
These days, everyone relies on online review sites to help them make their choices, but few people think to ask their friends for advice. When you’re over at your friend’s home and they’re showing off their beautiful new windows, ask them where they got the windows and who installed them. Ask them about the process. Was it easy? Did they stay in budget and on time? Were there any surprises along the way?
This is not to say that online reviews aren’t excellent resources when you’re looking for window installation in Santa Fe, NM, but you can’t ask follow-up questions to a review. If you see installation work that you’re impressed with in someone else’s home, that’s pretty much the best sign you’ll love it in your own home as well.
Simple estimates and installations
We offer free estimates to first-time customers because we understand they need to get many estimates first and then compare them. At every stage, we do our best to understand the process from our customer’s perspective, and to remove all potential for confusion.
It’s important that your window installation company makes the process just as transparent as the windows they’re installing—no hidden costs, no last-minute upselling and no bait-and-switch tactics. A good window installer gets the job done on budget and on time.
To save even more money, look for a company that sells the windows they install. Sometimes companies will use this as a chance to charge more, but with a reputable window installation company, there’s a good chance bundling windows and installation into a single purchase will save you money.
