Finding a Supplier
Finding a supplier who is willing to sell you some replacement windows is really not all that difficult. In fact, in some ways it is too easy. Many people interested in home window replacement complain that there are so many different choices out there, it is impossible to narrow down the field when it comes to finding a window replacement supplier they can trust. It's hard to separate the companies all from one another; with so much money spent on marketing by so many window replacement companies, they all just seem to blend together.
Sales Always End This Week
The advertising they take on to promote their businesses is usually quite extensive, almost omnipresent. Everywhere you go as a consumer and a private citizen, you are reminded over and over again that this week really is the best week of the year to buy new replacement windows, and that these prices are the lowest of the year. The funny thing is: you heard the same thing from that same company last week; and also the week before that, over and over again seemingly without end. Except that according to the television or radio spot, these sales end this week. It is enough to make you want to forget all about windows entirely.
But if you really are in need of new window replacement on your new home, you know that you can't just forget about it. At least some of the advertising banter is slightly useful, when they give you dollar amounts for the prices they charge. But even these prices have to be taken with a grain of salt. Until you talk to that company on TV, you can never know if that price represents a tiny basement window or the window you actually need replaced in your living room.
Using TV and print advertising as a price check method is a shaky one at best. For one thing, there is no telling whether the prices mentioned in the ads came with strings attached, or whether that sale really will end this week. It is hard to get much useful information at all about your home and the work you need done from these ads. You need to do some price checking by calling on some of the companies you're interested in. Dig a little deeper and get the information you're looking for.
Many Suppliers have Local Showrooms
If the suppliers you're thinking of using have showrooms in the area, it's a great idea to take a drive out and spend some time there. Come armed with at least some rough measurements of what you think you need. Even if you're contracting out all the labor, you still need some measurements so they can give you an accurate price. More than likely the showroom can set you up with some names for contractors to install the windows if you don't already have on in mind.
Online Searching for Window Suppliers
Using a search engine, you can enter in a term such as "replacement window suppliers" and see what pops up if you wish to find suppliers online.
