Whether you’re a design-build firm working with contractors on new projects, or an office admin looking to replace your building’s windows, finding the right commercial glass company is never as simple as it seems. When working on a commercial property, you don’t want to overspend, but you want to ensure the work will be completed quickly and efficiently, and last for years to come. Instead of making your decision based on quote-shopping, look into these factors as well:
As with any service, you’ll want to work with a company whose team members are professional and considerate. From the initial quote until the project is completed, are they going to communicate with you, provide a time frame and meet your expectations? Are they easy to reach if you have questions or concerns? Oftentimes the customer service received is well worth skipping the cheapest quote.
Reviews and referrals:
A great thing to look for in a commercial glass company is good reviews, or even a referral from someone you know. When starting your research, begin with recommendations from friends or colleagues, and online reviews.
Bringing your ideas to life:
Glass is one of the most creative industries there is, and if you own an apartment building, office space or retail space, it can help transform a bare space into one that is beautiful, modern and functional. Don’t be afraid to throw your ideas out there – you want to work with a commercial glass company that helps bring your vision to life, not one that shoots it down.
Qualified employees, license and insurance:
A lot of work goes into a commercial property, and it’s likely that if you’re the one in charge, you’re in contact with up to dozens of different people on any given day to complete the project. Working with a company that has qualified, trained employees on staff (not subcontractors), and is licensed and insured will help prevent any hiccups along the way – especially if you’re working with someone else’s budget. Don’t be afraid to ask for proof of these items!
