When looking for a place to buy your replacement windows, you should always be on the lookout for scams and manipulative sales tactics. While not all window replacement providers will be employing these tactics just to make a sale, it’s still better to be safe than sorry. One of the ways you can avoid these different types of scams and manipulative tactics is to know as much as you can about them.
In this post, roofers from ReNew Home Designs discusses the different window replacement manipulative sales tactics you should always avoid.
Buy X, Get X Free
Some replacement window companies will offer sales that will allow you to buy a certain amount of windows and then get at least one for free. This is one of the trickiest tactics to spot as some can actually be a legitimate sale. To know if you might be getting scammed, take a look at the overall prices of the windows you’re buying; for all you know, you may be paying the amount needed to buy that many windows in the first place.
It’s tempting to buy a window with a good deal but it’s often recommended by window replacement experts to take a closer look at the fine print. It’s possible that the window you’re buying is of a lower price because it’s a size that no one has and doesn’t come with a lot of energy efficiency options. With that in mind, always keep your options open when it comes to your window company or contractor. If you’re in need of more advice, don’t hesitate to turn to the window and roof replacement pros of ReNew Home Designs.
As much as possible, never ever give in to a window replacement salesman that pressures you to buy now. Any ‘sign today’ discounts should always be taken as an immediate red flag because they aren’t giving you the proper amount of time to consider the pros and cons.
Other Spouse MUST Be Present
One of the common excuses that homeowners use to avoid buying a window immediately is that they have to talk it over with their spouses. Unfortunately, some window replacement companies know this, which is why they’re requiring the other spouse be present at the same time. This is another red flag that should be avoided at all costs because once again, they don’t want either of you to take any time to think it over.
