Every update to your home is an important investment and shouldn’t be left to just any contractor. Here’s why you should work with manufacturer-certified companies.
What Are Manufacturer-Certified Contractors?
Manufacturer-certified contractors are much like authorized dealers in that they are authorized to offer products and warranties from the manufacturers they represent. Additionally, manufacturer-certified contractors receive training from the said manufacturers. Given that the most common cause of window and door failures is poor installation, installation is just as important as the products themselves. Contractors can hold certification from more than one manufacturer. At Madison Door, we hold certification from leading manufacturers such as Andersen®, ProVia® and Pella®.
To obtain their certification, window installation companies have to comply with requirements that typically include valid business and contractor licenses, comprehensive insurance coverage and good customer ratings with organizations such as the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Some manufacturers also consider local reputation. Contractors that meet these qualifications may be required by manufacturers to undergo periodic training to keep them up to date with their products and processes, as well as standards.
Why You Should Work With Manufacturer-Certified Contractors
Manufacturer-certified contractors offer the following advantages:
Access to quality products — Manufacturer-certified contractors get their products straight from the manufacturers, which means they’re guaranteed factory-fresh and not gathering dust in some warehouse backroom. Custom windows and other exclusive products are only available through manufacturer-certified contractors.
The best limited warranties — With manufacturer-certified contractors, you can rest assured that your new windows and doors are covered by the best warranties available. Filing a warranty claim is also much easier as manufacturer-certified contractors can process both product and installation warranties.
Superior workmanship — As we mentioned above, poor installation can make even the best doors and windows fail. The quality of installation is where manufacturer-certified contractors excel over uncertified ones. Also, manufacturers send quality inspectors after installation to make sure the finished work meets their workmanship standards.
