Seen everyone on Instagram talk about replacing their front doors which makes you want to replace that old crusty front door of yours? We’ve got you covered!
We’re the manufacturers of the doors so if you’ve liked our doors, thanks, but it’s time to get in touch with an installer who will install or fit them for you.
A common question that we’ve come across, in this case, is what should you look for in a good door installer?
First and foremost, look for an installer who is local to your area. While informing you of the installer’s details, we ensure that the installer isn’t too far away from you. No point in having them travel to you for hours! (They might not agree but even if they do, it’ll add to your costs)
It’s important to find someone who is accessible and credible. You might be able to pop into their showroom (check to see for their operating hours and appointments, if any) and browse through the doors on display, brochures, colour swatches, door cuts, as well as talk to their staff, other customers, and else. Every single house in your area translates into a potential business for your local installer who will try their best to convert as many as possible into buying customers.
Next comes the price. While it’s important to have someone local, make sure you shop for prices. After all, it is your home and you’re the decision-maker- A good product or service shouldn’t burn a hole in your pocket. It’s ideal if you’ve more than one installer in your area or someone who is willing to travel a bit. Make sure to ask your installer about financing options. Many businesses these days have various schemes that work on a buy-now-pay-later model.
Check what guarantee the installer has to offer. At The Palladio Door Collection, we offer a 12-year manufacturing guarantee against discolouration, bubbling, blistering, or any manufacturing faults. Your guarantee, as the homeowner, would lie with your installer. Any reputable installer should have commendable experience in surveying and installing doors for several years, an active business with a phone number, if not a website and email, and strong communication skills. No point in having to pester someone to get the slightest of information!
Read through the reviews, if any, to see what other customers have had to say about the installer’s expertise when it came to processing the order, surveying, fitting, and after-sales (Bonus points if they’ve a social media presence!) A door and window installer’s business heavily relies on word-of-mouth and referrals. They will do their best to appease the customer.
