So in the last post I talked about a website I found that helps people find good contractors specifically for window installation. I also talked about what a nightmare it was for me and my family when we were getting our windows replaced and that is why I brought up this website because I thought about how much a service like that would have come in use had I known about it before I had begun the renovation process of my home. Well it had dawned on me after I had made the post that I did not even mention the name of the website I had been talking about. So Depart-Ment.com is a website as I mentioned before made to help connect customers with contractors. What I like about it more that the more common sites like Angie’s List or any other contractor referral website is that Depart-Ment seems to be tailored specifically to help people find great window installers. They also seem to help people find the right salesman as well to help through the entire process. I can’t say enough about this website because although I don’t have any first-hand personal experience with them they seem pretty legitimate. I’m just bringing this up because I had such a bad experience with my own renovation project that I wish I knew about this website before hand. I know in the last post I was complaining about the installing but I have to admit, I’m not too pleased with the product either… My new windows seem very cheap and the craftsmanship just isn’t there. This is yet another reason why I regret jumping the gun on getting new windows and not being patient and waiting and doing more research to find the best place to go and talk to a true professional. Well that’s enough of me complaining for now, I just wanted to vent and hopefully save someone else from going through the same trouble I did.
So a lot of people under estimate the value of new windows in their home. Most people just don’t realize what a huge difference that new windows make on the appearance of their homes. First of all it makes everything look so much nicer from the inside and helps with the interior design of your home. It also makes a huge difference on the outside of your home, which is the first thing anyone sees when arriving to your house. Getting replacement windows help you save a huge amount of money on heating and cooling costs over the lifetime of your home, I mean come on, thats just common knowledge. So I recently just got the windows replaced in my home and it was a freaking nightmare. Everything was horrible from the time I met the dead beat guys who showed up to install the new windows. Even before that 8 weeks ago was when they were supposed to but we had to push back everything 2 1/2 months because they ordered the wrong size and color replacement windows. So I just heard about this website that helps people find contractors for various home renovation projects. I wish I had known about this earlier because it would have saved me a ton of time, money, and energy. It seems like a pretty solid website thats sole purpose is to set people living near major US cities with the best Window Replacement professionals. Right now it seems like replacement windows for Phoenix Arizona is the first city that they are launching as of now. Seems pretty cool and it should be interesting to see how this website turns out.
