What’s The Real Reason Behind The Big Difference Of Window Bids Between Window Replacement Companies?
Windows are not created equal, as you probably know by now. There are good windows out there as much as there are bad ones. This makes it crucial for buyers to exert time and energy to look for the right window for their home. However, a good replacement window should not only have excellent quality but also should be priced right. That is why before making a purchase, you have to spend some time to shop around for prices. According to the Better Business Bureau, getting quotes from no less than 3 companies is recommended.
Now, going back to the question as to why window bids differ so much. While many companies will probably give you explanations that can go on and on, the long and short of it is that the price of the windows is actually a direct reflection of the overhead of the company that provided you with the estimate.
For instance, on a particular window replacement project, one company gave a quote of $51,000 while another gave a quote of $32,000. Zen Windows gave an estimate of $15,000. Obviously, the difference was so big that it surprised the customer who asked for the quote. My explanation was actually very simple. It’s all about our business models. You see, the two companies are obviously big companies that undoubtedly could offer high quality products and excellent service. However, common denominators among big companies are their huge offices and large number of employees consisting of a group of telemarketers, canvassers, sales people, managers, and so on. There’s no other way to pay for the cost of the overhead but to build on the price of their windows.
And still, there’s the cost of various marketing strategies. It is typical for a large company to promote their products through the newspaper, radio, television, and other forms of media. These don’t come free of charge. How do these companies pay for all of these? You now get the picture, right? This whole picture explains the huge difference in the pricing of windows out there.
Now, let’s take a look at Zen Windows Boston, whose business model has already been pre-determined by the Zen Windows founder, Dan Wolt. Basically, what we offer is a win-win situation for both our company and our clients.
First of all, at Zen Windows Boston we don’t have salespeople. This means that our clients will directly talk to the owner of the company. Aside from keeping the flow of communication fast and simple, there is also no better person to represent the company but the owner himself. Moreover, we employ only a few people enabling us to keep the overhead at a minimum. This allows us to offer extremely competitive prices for our windows and doors.
Finally, Zen Windows Boston thrives largely on referrals. This means that we will do our best to take care of our clients and ensure customer satisfaction at all times. We will personally take care of your needs rather than entrust them to salespersons that care less about you, more than they do about the commission they will get.
