When buying products or looking to employ the services of a company, there can often be lots of choice. With home improvements being a significant financial investment, how do you know you are making the right decision when it comes to choosing a conservatory roof company? We give you some handy tips of the things to look out for when making your decision.
Look For a Strong Digital Presence
If you are looking for a reliable and reputable conservatory roof company, look at their marketing as this can say a lot about them. In days gone by, you may have turned to the newspaper or yellow pages to see the companies that had their name out their week after week. You may also be looking out for vans or signs in your local neighbourhood. These days, much of that marketing budget is spent on websites, social media and Google ads.
One of the best ways to find out about a company is to look at their online efforts. Carry out a Google search for conservatory roof systems, look up the name of the company, or companies, that you are considering and then have a look at their website. Is it up to date, do they have recently updated blogs, do they have a Facebook page. What other thing can you find on Google about them?
Look for Online Reviews
Unlike years ago when you would probably get the recommendation of a family member, friend or neighbour, now we look online to find out what we need.
With so much technology and information at our fingertips, it’s so easy to find out more about a company and their reputation online. Not only will most reputable companies have a digital presence including a website and social media pages, they will also have accessible reviews. Reviews can be found on a company’s Facebook page, on their Google page or on a third party review site such as Ekomi.
Reviews are an important part of the process when choosing a roofing company to provide your new roof system. You can read about the experience of others, find photos of finished projects and look at the overall star rating.
What Guarantees Do They Offer?
If you are investing in a new conservatory roof system, you want to make sure that it is going to last for many years to come. You should be looking for a full insurance backed, ten year guarantee. Make sure that you choose an approved installer so that the guarantee is protected.
Look for Accreditations
Accreditations mean that a product or service has met stringent conditions to be granted approval. If you are looking for a conservatory system then you should be looking for LABC and LABSS approved products.
Check Out Examples of Their Work
Look for pictures of completed projects. Perhaps they will have a gallery on their website, examples on their social media pages or they can provide a brochure or images of work completed. The more imagery that can be provided, the more completed projects which means lots of experience and happy customers.
How Can You Contact the Company?
The last thing you want, when choosing a conservatory roof company, is to hire someone to do the work and then discover that you can’t get hold of them. When choosing the right people for the job, make sure you can get hold of them. This should be pretty apparent from the outset. Can you reach them on the phone, do they call you back as expected, are there contact details clearly labelled on their website? You should also look for social media presence and make sure that you can contact them via their Facebook page for example.
When you do choose a company to provide your conservatory roof system, you should also use an approved installer too. This way you know that your guarantee will not be affected and that the installers are reputable too.
