3 Questions to Ask Florida Impact Windows Companies
Whether you’re looking to improve your home’s resale value, lower your energy bills or better protect your home from an impending hurricane with impact windows, the following are questions you should be asking Florida impact windows companies.
Question 1: What licenses do you have?
It’s important that you dive a little deeper than face value when searching for quality impact windows companies.
Asking them if they have a current state license with the Florida Department of Business and Professional regulation is one way to give you a little more peace of mind knowing you are working with a reliable business.
Question 2: How do you operate?
You should also ask how they operate or do a little digging on your own to help you learn more about their organization.
You can do this by looking at their website or social media to learn more about their history, customer reviews and testimonials, or even recent installation projects.
Question 3: Can I have a quote?
This may seem obvious, but it’s important to request a quote to compare with other Florida impact windows companies or even different window styles and glass packages.
Keep in mind that a quote shouldn’t be taken at face-value. You’ll want to look at all the value-added aspects, such as their warranty coverage, what their customer service is like, how much you’ll save in energy bills and potential home damage from hurricanes.
