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

Regardless of your options, it’s best to make sure that you do enough research on the contractors you’re planning to hire. 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.

"The service provided by Renewal by Anderson is great, both on the sales and the installation side. Our sales representative was very accommodating and helpful. The installation crew was efficient and they all were professional. These are really nice windows and a great upgrade especially from builder-grade windows."

"It is great to do business with a company that still cares about what they do and respects the end goals. We appreciate your craftsmanship professionalism, and cannot say enough about the wonderful experience.

"Everyone I worked with from setting up the initial appointment to the salesman to the installers to everyone who checked on us and kept us updated on the progress of the windows was courteous, professional, and responsive. There’s always someone who is willing to answer your question without jumping through hoops which is rare these days! The installers were on time, did a beautiful job, cleaned up the space better than I expected, and even helped me with some blinds I couldn’t remove and fixed my squeaky front door! I’ve already recommended Renewal by Anderson to friends!"
