When it comes to window replacement, you only want what’s best for your home. This means taking careful planning and consideration as you browse through products offered by different window companies. However, not all contractors have your best interests in mind, with some even employing scams and manipulative sales tactics just to make a quick profit.
To learn more about the different scams and sales tactics you may encounter, Renewal by Andersen® of Phoenix explains some of the more common ones below.
Buy One, Get One Free
You’ll sometimes encounter window products with a “buy one, get one” deal, but don’t always assume that they’re worth the price. While some may be valid offers, you still need to look at the deal closely for any hidden fees that may come out as soon as you make the purchase. Companies tend to lower the price to make the product more attractive to potential buyers, especially first-time buyers who aren’t aware of possible hidden costs.
Suspiciously Low Prices
While not all expensive window products offer the best quality, some that are offered at low prices should also be considered carefully. The rates are often just too good to be true simply because they hide other costs that won’t appear until later on during the window replacement process. When this happens, you’ll be forced to shell out more money than planned because all the details weren’t available in the initial offer. If you want a good deal for your windows, it helps to ask a lot of questions and read the fine print especially if you find a suspiciously good deal. In doing so, you can be sure that there aren’t any additional hidden fees.
As you browse through different windows, a sales representative may approach you and offer a product at a seemingly attractive price. However, he may say that it’s only good for today, which forces you to decide immediately whether or not you should work with them. This is a sales tactic to let you think you must take advantage of the “low” price, but you won’t normally find quality products this way. Only reputable window installers are more than willing to give you enough time to consider your options.
