Window Replacement, Las Vegas, NV – are you a gambler or an investor?
So, you are deciding which window replacement company to use and rid yourself of your old, inefficient windows and doors. If you go with cheap window replacement, it’s like you are playing the penny slots in your favorite Las Vegas Casino.
Penny slots can make you think you are saving your bankroll while you sip on your free watered-down drink, and you avoid the higher minimum bets of the tables.
You tell yourself you are being prudent with your money as you are only betting a few pennies at a time, that sounds like a responsible way of gambling, right?
The truth is: although it can take hours of play you will most likely find yourself with an empty wallet by playing those couple of pennies at a time slots.
This same concept holds true when you decide to go with a cheap window replacement in Las Vegas. Initially you think you are saving money, but at the end of the day you will pay dearly when you decide on cheap window replacement for your home.
Let’s pretend you hire “Mr Discount World Windows and Patio Doors” to do your window replacement project.
They come and give you a price that is very low, lower than other quotes you have received.
Now before you decide to throw the dice you think to yourself;
“In order to provide me with such a low price and still make a profit where could they be cutting corners?”
- They could save a bunch by hiring an inexperienced laborer instead of a window installation craftsman and expert.
- They can use low quality materials like; Caulking, sealants, cheap screws, trim, and any other materials they use will most likely be inadequate and cheap.
- They could bait and switch you; by offering a lower quality model in order to meet your price point.
Just the lower quality caulk and sealants can allow air leaks into your home and monsoon driven rains can bring that moisture inside your framing and cause you even more headaches.
If you decide to go with cheap window replacement in Las Vegas make sure you set some money aside for the repairs of those same windows in the future. This reminds me of why John Ruskin wrote this famous quote about low cost price providers and the risk buyers take when using them. “It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money – that’s all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot – it can’t be done.
If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.” “There is hardly anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price only are this man’s lawful prey”
So is the gamble worth the risk? While no one wants to pay too much for window replacement in Las Vegas, in the end you must be realistic and realize that a quality window replacement project is going to cost you money.
And just like gambling: if you go the cheap route even if you only bet pennies at the slots, at the end you could still lose everything.
