When replacing your windows, make sure that a reputable company does the work. If you don’t, you run the risk of your windows not performing to the standard that you would expect. Because of this, they might require further attention and work later on.

The best way of avoiding disappointments like this is by educating yourself about what to look for in a glazing company. We have a few tips to help.

Use An Established Business

The problem with a lot of trade related companies is that they can stop operating if they’re not financially stable.

Not only is this a concern mid-job, but also if you need any aftercare once the work is complete. Look for a company with an established history and a good number of years behind them.


Of course, this is going to be a big factor in your decision.

One of the ways you can find out if the company you’re looking at is legitimate is with a simple search online. Typing in their company name will often be very revealing, and if they’re reputable, your search should show a good number of positive testimonials.

Visit Their Showroom

If they have one, then you should visit before you consider using their services.
Not only does it provide a good gauge of the quality of service they will offer, but you can also get a lot of useful information about the materials they use.
Getting a close up look at the materials will also help you to understand what you prefer for your home.

A Clear Quote

One thing you want from your glazing company of choice is easy to understand the quote.

Ask for the total in its entirety; this includes the costs of labour, materials, survey, and installation.

Don't be fooled by companies that quote the price of the materials only. These, of course, sound better, but when it comes to paying your bill, you could have unwanted surprises.

At C&D Brooklyn Roofers - Top Roofing, Siding & Window Installation we try to make this process as simple as possible. We encourage you to ask questions if you have any concerns.


When you choose a company, you need to make sure you know how long the work and materials are guaranteed for.

If they’re not forthcoming with this information, then it can be a sign of a less than reputable company, and they should be avoided.

Word Of Mouth

The chances are you know someone who has used a window installation service in recent years.

Ask your friends and colleagues to see who they would recommend to give you an idea of who is reputable in your area.

No matter what you’re looking for, whether it’s a door or an entire home, choosing a glazing company to work on your property requires a level of research.

Once you have shortlisted a few companies, go with the one that offers a mix of value, reputation, and quality.
