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.

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.

After all, you are putting your money, your property and your new doors in their hands.

Reviews

"Love the windows and patio door. We want to finish the whole house when we can financially. We give Anderson and employees, especially the sales rep Mike that came to our house, the highest rating. Mike was knowledgeable and courteous. Also not high pressure."

"Our installation team was top notch. While they said they were sending a "team"to install 21 windows it was only two people. But I see why, the process was seamless and everything was done correctly and consistently with the leadership of Clayton. We had a tiny problem with one window within a week of installation and their response time was prompt to remedy the situation. Our windows are beautiful. Our home is warm and cozy."
