You’ve done your homework. Now it’s time to find the right dealer for you.
Some people can be intimidated by the process, but if you know what you want and what to expect, you’re likely to end up with windows you’ll be happy with for as long as you own your home.
It’s best to seek out the most qualified dealers in your area and compare what they have to offer. Ask for their references. Ask to see previous projects or to talk to previous customers. Are all their installation crews AAMA certified? Are they members of their local Better Business Bureau? SoftLite Windows & Doors partners with some of the most professional, qualified dealers in the industry and they can be found on the dealer locator.
Sometimes buyers find a dealer through an advertisement or word-of-mouth, and buy whatever they offer. A better way is to shop for a manufacturer first, then find a dealer who offers exactly what you’re looking for. We thank you for your interest in SoftLite Windows & Doors. We partner with qualified dealers that know our products and provide superior service. Find one near you!
On the initial visit, a dealer will take a walk around your house inside and out. They’ll note the size and style of each window and ask for your input. Your dealer will want to understand your concerns and will want to know your ideas on possible upgrades. In addition, they will look for any unusual installation challenges. During this assessment, it is important to make sure the dealer understands exactly what you want.
As the weather grows colder, foggy windows can become a problem in some homes. This simple phenomenon happens when an object is cooler than the air around it, causing a thin layer of water molecules to form on the surface. The windows in our homes are among the most common spots where this condensation occurs because windowpanes receive direct contact with the cold air outside and are usually the coldest surfaces in the interior of a house. While this may sound harmless, the condensation that forms causes water droplets to run down windows and walls, which can result in mold and mildew.
