Contrary to popular belief, buying double glazing doesn?t have to be the fearful process many people expect it to be. Keep a level head; don?t be rushed, above all find a reliable installer and it should all be a piece of cake! However, just to nudge the score in your favour, here is a list if things you might like to check before signing on the dotted line.
A good double glazing contract should include:
- The price as well as listed fees for additional work
- Any arranged extras
- The contractual timeframe for work to be started and completed
- A thorough description of the materials to be used and the work to be done
- Your contractual rights to cancel, plus whether any monies already paid will be forfeit
- A clear outline of agreed payment details, including particulars of the deposit
It?s also a good idea to check that the VAT is included and of course: Always read the small print!
