How To Hire A Shutter Company
Hiring a shutter company is just like hiring a roofer or a remodeling contractor to work at your home. You have to be careful today because there are all types of people out there.
You want to protect yourself and your family by asking some questions before you actually hire a shutter company. With the right questions, you can avoid a world of trouble.
Don't risk getting flimsy shutters and window blinds that the company won't stand behind or even sued by contractors who have accidents on your property.
Here are a few key things to ask before hiring a shutter company:
Ask The Shutter Company If They Measure & Install Free
If other quality shutter companies are offering free design consultations, free measuring, and free installation, why go with anyone else? If they do offer these freebies, it's likely that they also offer their products at wholesale prices rather than run a retail shutter store that sells shutters made in China at 3 x the markup.
No matter what services the shutter company offers, you need to be sure it's all outlined in the contract. Don't hire them unless you get a written contract with all the details you discussed over the phone.
Licensed Shutter Company In Your State
Hiring a licensed shutter company helps you to avoid scams, cheap products, bad installations, and con-artists who take your hard-earned dollar and run. Be sure to check with your state licensing registrar before hiring a shutter company.
The Arizona Registrar of Contractors is the licensing entity for a shutter company located in our state.
Our clients in Arizona can go here to check any contractors license.
Anyone Who Works In Or On Your Home Or Property Should Be Bonded
Many shutter companies like ours will offer you personalized services like a free in-home design consultation, free measuring, and free installation. Anyone, including your shutter company, should be covered by liability insurance (bonded) if they access your property for work.
If they aren't, you could be held responsible if they slip and fall or injure themselves while on your property. Protect yourself and family by making sure your shutter company is fully insured. Ask to see their certificate of insurance to verify what they claim over the phone.
Ask Them Where Their Shutter Products Are Manufactured
Many shutter companies try to sell flimsy knock-offs of American-Made window treatments that actually come from overseas. Ask them whether or not they make their own and if not, where they come from.

Just bought a house in Maricopa, Matt came and measured and was very thorough and conscientious. When the shutters came in they were installed perfectly and look fantastic. Overall an incredible experience, from customer service to professionalism, superior products, and value. One of the best companies I've ever dealt with.
