Why Talk With An Expert?

Shopping for windows and doors isn't something most people do every day. That's why it's important to talk with a professional who can help make sure your project goes off without a hitch.

An in-home appointment is a great place to start. Think of it as shopping from the comfort of your home. Your representative will ask you what you're looking for in a window or door, show you samples and take the necessary measurements. Once that's done, they'll have the information needed to provide you with a quote. In most cases, the quote and the visit are free.

4 answers you'll want to have handy
When you call to schedule your in-home appointment, the representative will ask a few basic questions to get a feel for your home and your project:
1. How many windows do you plan on replacing?
2. What is your home type? (e.g., ranch, two-story)
3. What year was your house built?
4. Do you prefer a certain material type? (i.e., wood, fiberglass or vinyl)

During your appointment, your representative may ask you about preferred styles and features, how much you'll use the product, whether you have children or pets, and other questions focused around your lifestyle.

For more information or to schedule an in-home consultation, contact your local Philadelphia showroom.
