The window industry has taken big leaps, especially in terms of added features and sustainability. However, there are some unscrupulous businesses that use sales tactics aimed at manipulating customers.
Here are some of the most common window replacement scams you should avoid.
Don’t let the pressure of buying a window right then and there get to you. Some salespeople may tell you that they can offer a certain price only on that day and urge you to sign a deal. However, a good salesperson will allow you to consider all your options and not force you into a decision you haven’t carefully considered.
Buy Some, Get Some
Buy-some-get-some promos are pretty common. They’re done by businesses in various industries, so you might be wondering what the harm could be. When offered this kind of deal, don’t forget to check the regular prices, and compare them to the “discounted” bundle rate. For instance, if they say you can get a free window when you purchase three windows, look at the total cost, and make sure you’re not really paying for the fourth window.
Too Good to Be True
Some deals will feel like they’re too good to be true right off the bat. In this case, ask for the fine print, and read it carefully. Discuss the details with the salesperson, and have them walk you through the terms and conditions. Ensure that you understand the terms correctly.
