Why Do Replacement Window Quotes From Different Companies Differ So Much?
When you want to get new and energy efficient replacement windows installed on your house, it’s really advisable that you get as many quotes from as many window companies as possible. Doing this will help you find the right set of replacement windows that will meet your needs and will fit perfectly into your budget. However, when you ask for window quotes from different companies, you might be shocked as to why some of them have really high bids while others don’t.
The main reason why window quotes differ so much would be the amount of overhead that certain companies have. In the past, we’ve had one customer get three entirely different quotes from three separate companies. The first company quoted his windows for $51,000. The second company’s estimate was $32,000. Zen Windows, which was the third one, quoted his windows for only $15,000. This caused him a lot of confusion and he wanted to find out the reason behind this. Before I gave him the explanation for this, I told him that the other companies that gave him way higher window quotes offered quality products along with good installation services and were not trying to take advantage of him in any way. I then told him that any business out there will surely aim to earn good profit. For this specific reason, some of them will opt to get a huge office and will hire a lot of employees. If a window company does this, they will surely end up with a lot of expenses, which will reflect on the windows that they’re going to offer their customers. Apart from getting a huge number of employees, some companies also invest money on TV, radio, and newspaper ads, which further increase the price of their products.
Zen Windows does things differently by following a simple but effective business model, which was formulated by our founder, Dan Wolt. He has been in the window replacement business for more than 20 years already and has proved that his business model works really well for both his company and his customers. Our business model has changed the way people shop for replacement windows and doors into an entirely easy and stress-free experience. Rather than shelling out thousands of dollars on lots of employees and expensive marketing campaigns, we only get our business from either online searches or by word of mouth. This is something that our customers think works for everybody as it doesn’t take too much time and effort.
All Zen Windows Houston customers get to talk and meet up with the owners. We don’t have a huge team of salespeople for a lot of good reasons. Since this is our own brand and company, we want to be able to represent it ourselves. Next, we think that the best way to establish a good and trusting relationship with our clients is by providing them direct and easy access to us through our cell phone and office phone numbers as well as our email addresses. By doing this, our customers won’t have to talk to anyone else but us. Plus, this allows us to make the prices of our products affordable and extremely competitive because we don’t have to give out sales commissions or spend money on lots of overhead. Lastly, talking to our customers personally allows us to guide and help them in choosing the best replacement windows and doors for their homes.
