Getting Help From the Pros – Going Local vs. National

Do you need to have your patio doors or windows replaced? If you answered yes, then you have two possible options: hire a local contractor, or look for a more popular national option. Both options have their merits, but which one will give you the most value for your money? Read on to find out.

Getting Help From the Pros - Going Local vs. National

Choosing Local Contractors

The biggest advantage of picking a local contractor over a more general national alternative is familiarity. Local contractors operate in your area so they already have an idea of what window or door options you will need. Local contractors also have a physical address a short drive away so discussing your project plans personally is easy. This personal connection with customers is invaluable to the success of most projects.

Going for National Brands

The biggest advantage of picking national brands is the quality and the brand’s reputation itself. A national brand will do everything it can to preserve the reputation it earned, and that involves putting more resources into ensuring the quality of their products. Big brand products are also known to have some of the best warranty coverage, which is always a big plus.

The Importance of Research and Feedback

After all, you are putting your money, your property and your new doors in their hands. Make sure you check each contractor has good feedback from their previous customers so you can get an idea of what to expect from the contractor.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
