Finding a Company that Has Been Around for a While
Did you know that St. Petersburg was incorporated in1892? Chances are that even if you’ve lived there a while that you had no clue. I know I had no idea!
The first and most important step in looking for replacement windows is finding someone who has been doing the job for a while, like Clearwater Window and Door.
Chances are, if a business has been around for as long as these guys, then they are doing something really right. Business, I’m sure you’ll agree, isn’t just about the nuts and bolts, but about customer service. People matter. Businesses don’t keep a float if they do a bad job.
Clearwater Window and Door, Inc. has been putting in replacement windows for over 50 years, giving them decades of experience over most of their other competition.
Licensed and Insured
The Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg was established in1982 and is the only museum that is dedicated to his works of art alone. If you think about it, before the Dali Museum there was nowhere to go that guaranteed seeing his work.
That’s really similar to when a business isn’t licensed and insured, especially a window replacement business. If a business isn’t licensed or insured how can you be sure that you can be guaranteed to see Salvador Dali paintings! I’m just teasing but you get my point.
So now you’ve got a couple businesses you are looking at and you are looking over the steps. The second step is an important one. If a company isn’t licensed then they shouldn’t even be doing business in window replacement. You might as well go hire a St. Petersburg neighbor for that lack of security!
Every company that hires out a service must provide a license number, which tells you as a consumer that they are allowed and certified to do the job of window replacement.
If they do not provide this number then honestly there is no reason you should trust that they even know how to do window replacement properly.
Clearwater Window and Door, Inc. is one of the companies that provide their license and insurance number for anyone who wants to know!
Now you may be thinking to yourself, “Well if they have a license number shouldn’t that mean that they have insurance, too?” You can’t really assume that either. Honestly, the company shouldn’t have any issue putting out that information either.
Accidents happen all day, every day. If a company doesn’t have insurance it’s not only most likely illegal, but also it basically says that they don’t care enough about their customers to protect them from accidents that are just unavoidable. Do you really want to be a customer to a company that cares so little about you?

Did you know that there are just about 250,000 people living in St. Petersburg? The average income for a household in St. Petersburg is about $35,000, as of 2000.
Now you’ve finally found a company that you think you can trust but then you think to yourself, “Yeah I know I can trust this company but how much is this going to cost?”
Give them a call! Any company worth looking into will have a phone number to reach them and will have no issues with any questions you might have including those about prices.
Clearwater Window and Door, Inc. is waiting for you to give them a call and is happy to give you any information you need!
If the company you are looking at won’t give you a quote then I don’t know about you but I feel that there is something not quite right going on. Either they don’t know what they are talking about or it might be a sign that the company might not be what they are trying to portray themselves as on the Internet.
If you followed the first couple steps then you shouldn’t run into any issues with the company not giving you a quote for free. It shouldn’t cost you a dime for you to call them up and ask how much the window replacement job you want done will cost.
Let’s just be honest, money is an important factor when looking for a window replacement company. You can’t always say the cheapest is the one to pick; because let’s face it… the price is cheapest for a reason. But usually you can stick to a price somewhere near the low end and still come out with a job well done.
So the next time Johnny breaks a window with his new ball, an unfortunate earthquake hits or (knock on wood) a burglary happens just follow these three simple steps and I’m sure you’ll find a company in St. Petersburg that does quality work, cares about its customers, and won’t take an arm and a leg to do the window replacement.
