In previous articles, we’ve discussed how to take good care of your windows. But what about getting them installed in the first place? Badly installed windows can lead to draughts, maintenance problems and even poor security. That’s why it’s important to use a high quality installation company from the very start. So what makes a great windows provider? Here are a few things you can look out for.
Your home is your personal space and should reflect your taste and style. You’ve probably spent time and money getting your décor just right. But have you given the same thought to your windows? Most people keep the same windows in place for years, so it’s worth making sure they’re perfect. That’s why it’s important to choose an installation company who offer plenty of choice.
At Unicorn Windows, we pride ourselves on our wide variety of products. We also offer customisation through a choice of glazing, locking systems, hardware, and finishes.
A well-managed service
Great products are important but you should also expect a great service. Amongst other things, this means working with a company who value communication. Poor communication can lead to all sorts of problems, particularly if your windows are part of a larger renovation project. You need a provider who will liaise with other contractors who may be working on your home. You’ll also want to be kept in the loop yourself, to ensure everything is going to plan.
At Unicorn Windows we work closely with architects and specifiers, wherever possible. We also offer a full project management service, including regular progress reports. This helps us to deliver our work to a high standard and make sure our customers are happy.
When choosing a window provider to work with, experience is key. A company with a good track record will know the best way to approach your project. They’ll also be able to foresee potential problems, ahead of time.
Unicorn Windows have been installing windows to a high standard since 1994. We’ve also worked on a wide variety of projects, including small and large-scale refurbishments, schools, and new builds. If you’re considering working with a certain company, first enquire about their level of experience. You can usually find this information online or alternatively, ask one of their representatives.
One way to spot a good track record is through positive customer testimonials. Ask your chosen company for some examples of happy clients from previous projects. Another option is to do an online search of review sites and forums, to get an independent opinion.
If you’re working with a local provider, ask around your community and see if anyone has worked with them before. At Unicorn Windows, we’ve helped thousands of happy clients. You can view some of their feedback on our site.
