Because craftsmanship and the person on the jobsite means more than the window or door itself
A quick look around the internet at window reviews will tell you quickly that the single most important variable in a replacement window or door installation is the person on the jobsite performing the installation.
A bad install even with the best of windows will produce mediocre results. While a multi-thousand dollar project should make a home go up in value, if the install looks bad it can actually make a home worth less than before.
Bad installations are rampant with many vendors. It's hit or miss as to who will do your install and their skill level.
Even the largest, most expensive window and door companies only pay between $35 and $65 per window for the installation portion of the project. The installer making $350 for a ten window job simply can't take the time and expend the effort that a higher skilled, better compensated installer can demonstrate.
We are very proud that our lower overhead and advertising costs translate to more resources for quality products and installation of those products. We want you to pay for windows and a great installation. Not a bloated business model.
Ten manufacturers with 2 to 5 models for each means you can have more options for cost effective solutions.
Most replacement window and door companies have a good, better and best type line from one manufacturer. Many times it is "private labled" to limit your ablity to see who really makes it and compare it with other manufacturers.
While tricks and deception are a part of the home improvement world for many we make it a point to provide total transparency in window cost, manufacturing and installation costs.
We use the very best sealants, trims, spray foam and accessories to provide the very best installation money can buy, at any cost. This is more costly, but provides better results, Also due to our experience in the field we know more options are available than would someone with fewer resources availble.
Many manufacturers have offered us slightly discounted pricing in exchange for a position with us as a single vendor but we continue to believe that more options are better and that we are abliged to bring the best option for the home to the table, not simply something we offer.
The homes we live in are our biggest and most valuable assets. Don't leave your home in the hands of inexperienced salesmen who may be trained to exert high pressure tactics or lumber store counter help. Trust the name that means quality. The Window Connection.
Small family owned businesses bring more caring and more personal accountability to the table.
There are a few ways to run a window company, Big with big overhead and advertising usually means big sales commisions and very high pricing. Many vendors are at $800 to $1000 per window for a basic product that we can offer for 30% less.
Another window business model says to price cheap in advertising and then nickle and dime the customer up the options list to bring the numbers up. This model also requires you to squeeze the labor and employees into the lowest compensation possible to net a small profit (hopefully). This leads to inexperienced help with limited skills, lower accountablity and more installation problems.
Windows are much like cars. Too expensive is wasteful and too cheap is just a bad idea when we all know you get what you pay for.
The best options are usually in the middle of those two extremes and we're very happy to be in that last category. We can't be cheapest and will never be expensive. We bring value and "bang for the buck".
Also because we run a small, tight operation we have more time for you and your home. Many vendors do hundreds of thousands of dollars in monthly volume. It leaves less time for everyone who works there to take time for you. We are proud that we keep our numbers manageable and purposely limit our commitments to twelve to twenty per month. Days on end for everyone we deal with. That's a big difference in accountablity.
