When it comes to glass repair and replacement in Dallas, TX, your options are many. Unfortunately, not all replacement glass companies are created equal. In fact, if you’re not careful in who you choose to handle the glass needs for your home or business, you could end up with a much bigger and costlier problem down the road. So, how can you weed through the masses and find a company that’s truly qualified to manage your glass repair and replacement project? Here are five key things that can help narrow your search.

Specific Experience

Some fly-by-night operations may bill themselves as replacement glass installers, but if that’s not truly their specialty, you could get more than you bargained for (and not in a good way). If glass isn’t repaired or replaced by a skilled professional who knows exactly what they’re doing, the ensuing damage could range from drafts and leaks to cracks and dangerous hazards to yourself, your family and/or your customers. To avoid this, look for a provider with specific experience, qualifications and skills.

Range of Services

While it’s important to choose a contractor that has specific experience with glass repair and replacement, it’s also a good idea to look for a company that offers more than just that one service. Having a range of options will enable you to get all of your glass needs taken care of without having to contract with multiple different companies. For instance, rather than just look for someone who can replace your commercial glass windows, find someone who can also repair those windows in an emergency. This will save you time and frustration.

Word-of-Mouth Reputation

An established Dallas glass replacement company should have plenty of satisfied customers who would be willing to recommend them. Ask around to your friends, family and colleagues. Take suggestions from your social media network. Find out who’s had a good experience with a particular glass company. Ideally, look for folks who have had the same or similar project as you’re looking to do. Comparing apples to apples is always your best bet.

Good Reviews

Once you’ve received some solid recommendations, it’s time to start doing your research. The internet is home to a ton of different review sites where well-meaning individuals and business owners can voice their opinions and share their experiences with specific businesses. Look up each of the glass replacement company’s on your list and read through the reviews. If you’d like to take things a step further, contact each provider on your list and ask them to provide you with testimonials and references from happy customers.

Excellent Interpersonal Skills

Glass replacement and repair may be a business transaction, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t choose a company that offers friendly, personable service. This is especially importance since the technicians will be spending time in your home or business while they work. You’ll want to choose someone you can feel comfortable to interact with, ask questions and discuss the project as it progresses. Before hiring anyone, be sure to speak with them, either over the phone or (ideally) in person to see what kind of vibe you get.
