If you’re looking for a windows and doors expert to advise about options for replacing your commercial windows and doors, it’s essential to find a specialist who can fulfil your needs. However, many businesses aren’t sure how to easily identify which local company is right for the job.

To make things easy for you, we’ve put together this handy guide, helping you to think about the most important factors to consider.

Commercial windows & doors guide - how to find the right specialistDo they identify as a commercial windows & doors specialist?

Locate a company who are experts in supplying and installing new windows and doors in commercial properties rather than just homes. While most installers will have residential experience, the range of products and specifications required for commercial buildings can be very different. Search for a specialist who has a dedicated service to commercial windows and doors, showing they understand the varying needs of this sector.

What experience do they have on commercial projects?

If you’re a business considering investing in new windows and doors, it’s vital to create a professional look which gives the right impression to visitors, staff and the public. If a window company is promoting their commercial services, they should be able to provide visual examples of their work. If these aren’t present on their website pages (look at their ‘gallery’, ‘portfolio’, ‘case studies’, ‘projects’ or directly on their commercial services page), request to see photographs of installations they’ve completed. You should also check out their social media pages to learn more about what they’ve been working on. It’s always useful to see evidence of their work, backing up claims they make about their craftsmanship.

Have they worked with businesses like yours?

While a company may have experience working with a few commercial clients, each business has their own priorities when it comes to what they’re looking for in new windows and doors. For example, a high rise office building may have different requirements to a school, church or residential home. Check if they have experience working on similar projects to yours. If they also specialise in installations for domestic buildings such as houses and flats, working with them is a great option if you’re a letting agent or property developer.

What do their customers think of their work?

There’s nothing more useful than hearing from those who have experience of a company’s work already. An established team will have a range of testimonials on their site, and you should also be able to find reviews about them online, including on their Facebook page. It’s one of the easiest ways to find out more about the experience they’re offering, finding out anything from their timekeeping and attitude to their expertise and quality of work.
