Have you had the “sales person” out to provide the free estimate? Have you done your homework on the internet and now have more questions than you started with? Do you have a fist full of brochures and they all look the same? You are not alone. In many cases, a white window is a white window is a white window and they all look relatively the same. In many cases, they are relatively the same with minor differences in the locks or the frames, etc.
What really sets window and door companies apart is the installation process. Folkers has a documented 9 step process that is followed every time. We do not use sub contractors but rather employees who are highly trained in that process. We use only the highest grade of installation materials (caulk, screws, etc.). During the installation, we follow the manufacturer’s recommended installation processes and specifications in order to ensure that the product is installed properly. We do not cut corners. As an example, if we discover wood rot or termite damage, we inform the home owner and we fix it. We pick up after ourselves and clean the area ensuring that we treat your home like we would treat our own. We pull building permits which leads to the building inspector having to inspect our work in order to clear the permit. The inspector is ensuring that we installed the products to state standards as well as the manufacturers’ standards.
So the next time you are wanting to compare windows and doors, keep in mind the installation is one of the most important components of the project.
