When you are in the market for door and window replacement, it’s important to be aware of the potential scams that exist. In this blog post, we will discuss what constitutes a window replacement scam and how you can avoid them when shopping around for new windows or doors. 

Window Replacement Scams

Types of Window Replacement Scams

Window replacement scams can take many forms, from simple overcharging to more elaborate fraud. Some of the most common types of window replacement scams include: 

  • Charging for windows or doors that are not actually installed 
  • Overcharging for services or products 
  • Installing doors or windows that are substandard or not up to code 
  • Misrepresenting the quality and/or cost of a product or service 

Tips to Avoid Window Replacement Scams

Research the Company Before Signing Anything

Before signing any contracts or making payments, do your research. Look up customer reviews and make sure the company is licensed and insured.

Have a Professional Install Your Windows

Don’t be tempted by offers of cheap, DIY installations of windows or patio doors. Professional installers are trained to properly install windows and doors to ensure that they meet safety standards. It is important to make sure you have a professional installer handle your windows or sliding doors in order to avoid any potential scams or problems down the line. 

Don’t Pay with Cash

When dealing with window replacement companies, it is recommended to never pay with cash. Paying with a credit card or check allows you to dispute any fraudulent charges and will give you more protection in case of any problems.
