How to Recognize Window Supplier Scams

Many window companies will do just about anything to be more appealing than the competition. This includes bad-mouthing competitors, spreading fake reviews and outright lying.  Many homeowners choose window contractors based on price alone. Unfortunately, scammers lie about prices, offer fake discounts or quote for lesser-quality products. Once the contract gets signed, they go back to the client and adjust the quote to the higher one.

Don’t let yourself be fooled. In today’s post, Renewal by Andersen of Seattle shows you how to spot potential window supplier scams.

Fake Discounts

Some companies offer incredible “limited time only” discounts of 20, 30, 40, or even as much as 50 percent. But are they real discounts if offered often? They inflate the price, and if the client doesn’t bite, they offer a “discount” to sweeten the deal. Ask how these companies sell high-quality replacement windows at half their normal price. If they always offer such big discounts, shouldn’t those be regular prices?

Quoting for Something Different

Some salesmen will not hesitate to give you a quote on a lesser-quality or cheaper window. This makes any reasonable quotes from other companies look overpriced. In reality, dishonest companies can get away with this by not giving an official quote. A proper quote should specify the exact type, model and size of the window, as well as any extra features.
