How to Find a Replacement Windows Company in San Diego
When looking for a window replacement company in San Diego, it might not necessarily be hard. But when it comes to finding one worth while, that might take a little more doing. Pelican Replacement Windows is one of the best window and door companies by San Diego. Don’t want to take my word for it, that’s ok. I’d need a little convincing myself. I will be explaining a few things that you need to look for regardless of which company you decide on.
One of the first things to be looking for in a window replacement company is: what do other people say about it? I don’t know about you but when I like a place, I brag. It’s so hard to find a company you like today. There are so many bad ones out there it’s hard to figure out which ones are worth the time and money. The best way to figure that out is by reading what others say about them. Pelican Replacement Windows was awarded a Super Service Award by Angie’s list last year. Everyone knows that a company can’t pay to be on Angie’s list. But everyone who has worked with a company and is on Angie’s list can comment and give their views on what it’s like to with them. Only the top 5% of window replacement companies, in San Diego, receive the award; just like with every type of company, in every region. That is a fact you can look up on Angie’s list itself. It is quite a prestigious honor. Good reputation is a must when it comes to having any work done in your house.
Another thing to check on with the company you are looking at is the website. People are on their computers an average of 2-3 hours a day and on their phones who knows how much longer! A company who puts effort into their website will be guaranteed to put a good deal of effort into their actual work. Pelican Replacement Windows has a beautiful website with many things that you, as a possible customer, can look into. Some websites can turn out to be a real mess but a few specific things to look for are pictures of finished jobs, multiple tabs that you can look through that describe the types of windows they use when installing replacement windows, FAQs or frequently asked questions that you are probably wondering yourself, reviews from previous customers, and a contact us tab. On the home page should be a very obvious phone number for you to call, but if not a contact tab is a must. All of these things are a must on any San Diego company website and especially a window replacement website.
A few other things that you might be looking for on the website to help just bump it up a notch could be that they have a blog, either through the website or separately, that you can go look at. That is definitely an added bonus! I love watching informative videos or reading informative posts and you can usually find a lot on a blog or at least have it better explained on a blog. Another big plus for any company that has a blog is having videos that explain something about the business that may be hard to explain without visuals. Pelican Replacement Windows has a blog tab with many videos that explain the different types and styles of sliding doors, how windows are installed and also some big mistakes that people make when looking for replacement windows that you can have installed in your home. The fact that any company would take the time to make a video to help explain how their business works puts me at ease. Anyone can type up the things a consumer might need to know but putting yourself out there on a video shows that they care about making it easier for me to understand the things about their business that really is easier to understand through visual example. That takes real dedication.
Another thing that I look for that just makes me believe a company is really being competitive is that they advertise specials on their website, if no where else. How will you find out a good deal that might be perfect for you? Many times along with their specials, a company will advertise a popular package or special that has everyone running to them. Usually in a separate tab they explain what the package entails. Those companies that run specials show that they are competitive and that they are trying to save the customer money in the ways that they can. So if nothing else maybe you could use them when they are running a special that works with what you need done.
One of the most crucial things for the company to have is the option for you to call for a free estimate. Just about every window replacement company in San Diego will offer free estimates, but only Pelican Replacement Window has no pressure selling and very competitive pricing when you call them for your estimate. A company that understands that sometimes all I want is an estimate and I might just shopping around makes me more comfortable; also in the end I will most likely choose the one who seemed so desperate to close the deal. If a company is good then they can afford to wait for the customer to come to them.
San Diego is one of the Foreign Trade capitals of the world so you can easily find plenty of businesses in this area. When it comes down to it, if you need your windows replaced there are plenty of companies that you could choose. But shouldn’t you go with a company, like Pelican Replacement Windows? One who is really trying to make this experience as easy to understand and wants to do a good job for you and your home.
