Some people want to know how much new replacement windows & doors will cost before they invite someone into their home for a presentation, inspection and estimate.
Maybe this is you.
And if this is you; We certainly understand.
But the fact of the matter is this.
They must first see and inspect your property with an expert set of eyes.
As you can imagine, it is easy to estimate the cost of just windows alone.
But when you add installation into the price things can get complicated…fast.
Because they never “really know” what circumstances they’ll be dealing with. And these circumstances make Over-the-Phone estimates a challenge – and unreliable.
And the list goes on…
California law also requires that window companies test all properties built before 1978 for lead.
And the list goes on and on…
Did you Know that California law also requires that window companies test all properties for lead if built before 1978. It’s true. Lead tests are required if the paint around the window will be chipped, sanded or disturbed.
All of these things, and more, can make installations more challenging, more time consuming and more costly.
So what usually ends up happening after those over-the-phone estimates?
Well, a salesperson eventually gets out to your home to provide you with the “Real Estimate.”
And then they often find themselves in an awkward position with you.
Because the actual cost can be hundreds, or even thousands of dollars more the original over-the-phone estimate.
And now you, the homeowner, feel that you were lied to…and that you can’t trust them…and you are upset.
We’ve even heard of some companies using the original estimated amount only to adjust the price in real-time during installation… Because they discovered “New Issues” while they were installing the new windows & doors.
Then you are informed that these “New Issues” make your job more difficult…and it will cost more money. So they adjust the price accordingly.
Of course, these on the job discoveries and adjustments can also happen legitimately. But wouldn’t you like to reduce the likelihood of them happening to you?
By now, you are starting to realize why it takes a personal visit and inspection of your property to provide an “honest” and “accurate estimate.”
Yet with all that said; If you really want one, you can still ask for a “ballpark” over-the-phone “guestimate” from Win-Dor before we meet. And if you do get one, at least you know now that these types of estimates aren’t as meaningful as you may have once imagined.
So the choice is up to you.
Do you get an estimate over the phone that doesn’t really mean much?
Or, do you invest the time in getting accurate estimates that you can truly rely on?
