Why Choose A Regional Home Improvement Firm?

Author: Conservatories & Double Glazing Expert  |  Leave a Comment >>

When improving your home you are overwhelmed for choice in terms of the number of home improvement companies out there who install the very latest thermally efficient conservatories, windows and doors.

You can appoint 1 of 3 different types of installer:

- A regional installer
- A national installer
- A “man in a van” installer

We hate to be biased but we would always recommend that you employ a regional installer and here are some reasons why:

Advantages of a Regional installer

• Localised expertise

If you are thinking about fitting a conservatory at your home you need to ensure it complies with planning permission requirements and building regulations. A regional installer will advise accordingly, and should any prior approval from your local planning department be required, deal with such obligations on your behalf.

• Instant customer service

No-one wants problems to arise with your installed home improvement product, but occasionally they do. You will want any issues to be attended to quickly and they will be when your appointed installer is based nearby.

• Local endorsement

Recommendations from friends and family members are always helpful as they may have had work completed by a local company that they would have no hesitation in endorsing. Go to their home and see the work for yourself.

The above three points are only justifiable if we give you the reasons why we wouldn’t suggest you use a national installer or one-man-band; so here they are:

Disadvantages of a National installer

• No product understanding

Sometimes we need a little helping hand when buying new home improvements to help us make the right decision. But, many of the consultants at national installation firms have minimal product knowledge and aren’t able to give you a firm enough understanding of what’s available.

• No showroom

It’s only natural that you would want to see products in person before committing to a purchase, but some national installers don’t give you that option as they don’t own a showroom. It almost makes you wonder if they have something to hide.

• No local presence

It definitely helps when the showroom or Head Office of your chosen installer is within decent commuting distance of your home. You may find that the store and/or headquarters of most national installers is hundreds of miles away.

Disadvantages of a one-man-band

• Don’t always honour warranties

A warranty is a written guarantee that an installer will repair or replace a product if necessary during a specified time period. There are several examples of independent installers failing to honour such agreements and leaving customers out of pocket.

• Don’t supply an Insurance Backed Guarantee

An Insurance Backed Guarantee is designed to cover you if an installer goes out of business and is unable to finish a project or honour a guarantee. An independent installer may not be able to provide an IBG.

• Don’t offer financial assistance

Not everyone has the financial clout to pay for home improvements alone. They may need a home improvement loan to realise their ambitions. Again, an independent installer may not be able to supply access to such loans.

If you live in the North West you cannot go wrong with Clearview. Contact us now and find out why we’re the best in the business.
