Choosing the right company to carry out home improvements on your home can be overwhelming, especially with national giants vying for your attention. But before you get swept away by their wide reach, consider the hidden gem right under your nose: your local glazing specialists.
What are the main benefits of choosing a local company over a national chain?
- They're just a phone call away, ensuring prompt repairs and maintenance.
- Deeper understanding of local building regulations in your area, avoiding delays and complications
- By choosing local, you're supporting jobs and businesses that contribute to the well-being of your community
Is there anyway I can see examples of your work?
Yes, most local companies will have case studies to browse. We have a portfolio of previous projects on our website, where you can see how we've transformed homes in your area with new windows and doors.
Do local companies have showrooms?
Yes, many local companies will have a showroom, where you can get to try before you buy their products. We, for example, showcase a wide selection of windows and doors in our local showroom, where you can get a firsthand look at the quality of our products and discuss your project with our experts.
Making sure you are in the right hands is of paramount importance, that’s why in this article we’ll explore the benefits of choosing a local, reputable company to carry out the installation of your new windows and doors.
Local Knowledge is Power
Local companies have the inside scoop on your area. They have a greater understanding of the specific building regulations, restrictions, and architectural trends that shape your neighbourhood. This translates to expert advice on choosing the perfect windows and doors to complement your home’s style and seamlessly integrate into the local landscape. No cookie-cutter solutions here!
Faster Response Times and Support
Emergencies don’t wait for business hours. This is one of the biggest advantages of a local company, as they are much more likely to have a knowledgeable person at the end of a telephone, rather than a telephone answering system with seemingly neverending hold music. A local company is just a phone call away, offering prompt appointment scheduling and quicker response times for repairs or maintenance. No waiting for days for a technician from out of town! Plus, with their vested interest in the community, they’re more likely to go the extra mile for their neighbours.
Improve Your Home and Support Your Community
By choosing local, you’re not just improving your home, you’re contributing to the growth and well-being of your community. Local businesses create jobs, strengthen the local economy, and support local initiatives. It’s a win-win for you and the community!
A Personalised Touch You Can’t Fake
National companies might have slick marketing campaigns, but do they have the personal touch? Local businesses, on the other hand, treat you like a neighbour, not just a number. They take the time to understand your unique needs and preferences, offering tailored solutions that fit your specific home, the surrounding area and your budget.
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Choosing local reduces the need for long-distance travel, meaning a smaller carbon footprint and a greener planet. It’s not much, but every little bit counts in the fight against climate change!
Reputation Built on Trust (Not TV Ads)
With local businesses, you can see their work up close and personal. Ask for case studies of past projects in your area, chat with satisfied customers, and even visit their showroom to get a feel for their quality and craftsmanship. Feel free to read our 1,200+ Checkatrade reviews and visit our recently remodelled showroom.
Build Real Face-to-Face Relationships
In today’s digital world, face-to-face interaction is a rare treat. Local businesses offer the human touch, allowing you to discuss your project directly with knowledgeable experts. This builds trust and ensures you’re on the same page from the get-go.
The Value Beyond the Benefits
Local businesses focus on value for your money. They prioritise quality materials, skilled installation, and long-lasting results. Plus, you’re supporting a business that cares about your community, not just its bottom line.
So, when your home needs some improvements, look past the national companies like Anglian and First Home Improvements, by considering local companies first. If it’s your windows or doors that need a revamp, give your local glazing specialists a call. You’ll be surprised by the level of service, personal touch, expertise, and value they bring to the table, all while supporting your community and helping you with your home’s improvements.
