Investing in a glass manufacturer for bespoke glasswork is a wonderful way to add a touch of elegance and refinement to your home or business. However, finding a reliable one can feel daunting, especially if you don’t know much about glasswork yourself. It is an investment in your property and you want to make sure that it is done right and at a reasonable price.
Not to worry. Whether you’re totally new to glasswork or a total aficionado, our guide on what qualities to look for in a reliable glass manufacturer will help find the right company for you.
Always make sure that your glassworker is experienced in what they do. Every glassworker has a first job, but you aren’t paying to be someone’s work experience. When considering a potential glassworker, check out how long they have been in the business. Look over any image galleries they have on their website. You deserve a glassworker that knows the difference between cutting edge and cutting corners.
Accreditations, Certifications, And Affiliations
If a glassworker you are considering has a website, scroll to the bottom of the page to check out their accreditations and affiliations. A reliable vendor will have the badges to prove that they are trustworthy, knowledgeable, and proficient in their craft.
To give an example of what a properly badged company looks like, at Armada Glass and Glazing we are certified by Warringtonfire, affiliated with the Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ and Manufacturers’ Association (PASMA), and accredited Which? Trusted Traders. All of our accreditations and affiliations can be found at the footer of our website, free for anyone to check.
Approval from professional third parties is a must. These are companies whose reputations rely upon the trust people put in their recommendations. Always look for them when checking out a potential glass maker.
When looking into who to hire, it’s important to know that they properly cover your area. This may seem obvious but it often doesn’t occur to people.
You can find out whether your prospective glass manufacturer covers your area in a number of ways:
The first, and easiest, is to simply ask. Most vendors will have no problem telling you exactly how far they are willing to go for their work.
Sadly, this doesn’t always work. Some businesses are known to lie about how easily they can reach a customer’s property in order to secure a purchase. This can lead to complications in communication, scheduling, and transportation.
The second and often more reliable method of checking a potential glassmaker’s coverage is to look at their website if they have one. A business’ website will detail its address and even its service areas, making for an easy solution.
Is Your Glass Manufacturer Competitively Priced?
Be wary of any vendor that prices themselves too highly, but also those who promise unrealistically low prices. A reliable glass manufacturer will price themselves according to the value of their craft.
Choose a glass manufacturer that provides you with open and frank communication. Whether your needs are private or commercial, you deserve glass that fits your needs and that fits into your property perfectly.
