Read our expert guide on double glazing – how to get quotes, avoid the traps when dealing with salesmen, finding a reputable company and, most importantly, avoid being overcharged when you install double glazing. There are many horror stories about double glazing salespeople and they certainly have a somewhat less than perfect reputation. However, knowing how they operate means you are one step ahead, less likely to fall for their sales tactics, and have a better chance of paying a reasonable price.
To give you that head start, we have spoken to both double glazing experts and home owners to get their insights on the best way to get a good double glazing company and a quote that won’t break the bank.
Find a reputable double glazing company
There is always more than one option for buying and installing double glazing. The main options are:
- Use a well-known, nationally recognised, reputable double glazing company. Big names such as Anglian, Safestyle or Everest have earned their reputation for a reason;
- a reputable independent company that supplies double glazing within your local area; Complete Glazing Birmingham are a perfect example of a local independent double glazing company.
- a local builder or joiner.
If you are already renovating your property, or doing major works like building an extension or a loft conversion then you will be more likely to choose the last option simply because you already have access to someone who can coordinate this for you and can probably get you a great deal, even as low as trade price, for the products you need.
