What Factors Do Consumers Consider When Purchasing New Windows And Doors

In this article, we’ll be taking a look at some of the factors that customers take into consideration when purchasing new Windows or Doors. As well as this we will take a look at how you can provide greater assurances to your customers.

Why make the switch?

As any experienced installer will know, many factors go into the decision to make a new window or door purchase. Poor thermal efficiency, irreparable damage or even new builds can all be valid drives to make such a purchase.

But what else goes into the decision to purchase Replacement Windows or Doors?

How consumers arrive at a purchase decision

Whilst retail purchases of Windows and Doors still outweigh online sales for now, consumers increasingly rely on the internet to inform their purchase decisions. More informed than ever, you can be sure that a vast majority of potential customers that contact you, or enter your door are already well informed. Both on what they’re after and what you have to offer. Likewise, they will be well informed on your competitors.

Online sales are rapidly increasing as powerful tools such as our Quote Builder provide homeowners with a quick way to create their own order with no fuss. Time is a precious resource to consumers, so as online tools become more powerful online sales will continue to rise.

Customer confidence

As your customers will be vetting all installers they’re considering, prior to making contact, having a strong online presence is vital. Demonstrating clearly what you offer is highly important. If a customer can’t figure out what products are available to them and what guarantees are provided, they may go somewhere else.

If the customer is intending to make a purchase due to damage or performance related issues, it’s of the utmost importance that you can assure the customer that they won’t experience the same problems should they choose to work with you.

Costs

Door and Window replacement costs are also a key consideration homeowners will factor into their decision. From a few hundred pounds for a single window to a few thousand for a full house, costs can vary significantly based on the type. Having a good understanding of your costs and being transparent will lead to a better customer relationship

Time cost is often overlooked. Projects dragging on is a big concern for most homeowners, so setting a timeline and sticking to it goes a long way to winning a job. Having a supplier with a 24-hour turnaround on quotes is also a huge help.
