Choosing the right contractor for your window replacement project can be a challenge, especially given the number of unscrupulous window companies in the industry. When searching for a contractor, you need to remain vigilant about certain red flags to avoid falling victim to a scam.
Read on as the exterior remodeling professionals at V. Nanfito Roofing & Siding, Inc. shed light on the latest window replacement scams.Limited Time Offers
Sometimes, window replacement companies will hold special promotions that are only available for a certain period of time. This is common, but if a representative is pressuring you into a contract by enticing you with massive discounts on the condition that you sign today, that could be a huge red flag. Limited time offers in the remodeling industry must be taken with a grain of salt. It’s a sales tactic that plays on your feelings.Unbelievably Low Prices
When it comes to windows, certain product costs are pretty much standard across the board. It’s reasonable to expect some difference in prices between products, but wild disparities in price are abnormal. If a company is offering suspiciously low prices, take it as a red flag. Familiarize yourself with standard price ranges and be wary of products that come with heavy discounts. Bait and Switch
Dishonest companies may give you different replacement windows than the ones you negotiated and paid for. You can avoid falling for this age-old bait-and-switch scam by doing your research on the products that you want and knowing the basics of all the features your windows should have.
