When replacing your windows, ensure 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 many 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 many years behind them.


Of course, this will be a significant 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 many positive testimonials.

Visit Their Showroom

If they have one, you should visit before considering 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 helpful information about the materials they use.
A close-up look at the materials will also help you understand what you prefer for your home.

A Clear Quote

You want to understand the quote from your glazing company of choice.

Ask for the total, including labor costs, materials, survey, and installation.

Be aware of companies that quote the price of the materials only. These 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 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 know how long the work and materials are guaranteed.

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

You may know someone who has recently used a window installation service.

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 research.

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