I got a pretty great deal on some plantation shutters after looking all over the Internet for a company to put them in. I was just going to go with a local company that I had been getting advertisements from, but my wife told me that it would be best to take a look around and see if we could find anyone better. She didn’t really trust that local company because she had heard things about them from other people who had used them. It was a good thing she told me to look around, because not only did I find the good deal, but I learned that this company had been doing shoddy work all over town.
Looking for a good company isn’t as easy as one would think it is. It isn’t just about picking the first one that comes into sight. A company has to have a good reputation and good reviews from the people who have used it. It helps if you can see first hand the work that the company has done. Unfortunately, no one on our block had gotten shutter work done, which was surprising, so we pretty much had to go by online resources. The customer reviews really helped out a lot for getting rid of the companies that weren’t worth their ads.
All in all, the company that we used were probably heads above anyone else we could find. They were prompt about their responses and showed up for work on time, which is something that is rare to find in this neighborhood. I swear all of the other companies except this one have conspired to be as late and unresponsive as possible with their customers. I have no idea how they continue to stay in business, but they better watch out, or good companies like the one we hired for shutters will eat them alive.
