How to Choose the Right Shutter Company
You have thought about it for a while, debated back-and-forth, and have finally decided to get the window shutters you have always dreamed about. Congratulations! Window shutters are a great investment for any home. They add style, increase your home’s property value, and are much more energy-efficient than many other window treatments. But now who do you choose with the important task of installing them? You want your St. Petersburg shutters to be installed properly and professionally, but how do you find the right company?
No worries. We are going to go over some of the questions to ask and things to look so that you can feel confident you are hiring the right company for your job.
How Long Have They Been in Business?
A long, reliable history says a lot about a company. Most likely they didn’t get this long history by doing bad jobs and giving poor customer service as those companies don’t tend to last long. If the company has been around a while, typically they have the knowledge and skills needed to complete jobs professionally and on time. Going with a more established business can give you a little more piece of mind.
Read Their Reviews
Check out their reviews and testimonials from past clients. Are they reviews good? Is there anything past clients complain of? Don’t just read the first few but try and read as many as you can to get a true idea of how the company performs.
What Products Do They Offer?
Find out what products the company offers. Are they offering the brands of shutters you are interested in? How big is their selection? Do they have a good relationship with the shutter manufactures?
Are They Family-Owned?
Some people may not find this important, but many people like to work with family-owned and operated businesses. If this is important to you, most family-owned and/or operated business state this on their website. If you are unsure, simply ask.
Look at Their Past Work
Most companies will have a section on their website for their “gallery” or “portfolio” showcasing some of their past work. Make sure to take a look at this. These images can give you a great idea on what the company can do as well as options for your job. It’s also a great place to see the quality of their work.
Are They Easy to Get a Hold Of?
You don’t want to hire a company that you can never get a hold of. Check out the website and notice the contact information. Is there just a phone number? If so, they may be more difficult to get a hold of once the job starts. Having several options of contact is a good sign that the company welcomes communication. This may consist of a contact form, email addresses, or the physical address with a map on their site.
Installing new window shutters for your home is a big investment that you don’t want to trust to just anyone. Knowing you are hiring the right company can set your mind at ease. Asking the right questions and being aware of certain things can help you have the confidence you have chosen well.
