When looking to pay a professional contractor, you want to know that you’re going to get your money's worth and be satisfied with the end result. Feeling confident in the contractor you choose is important.
Southwest Exteriors has been a locally established contractor for over 30 years. What sets us apart from our competitors is our purpose. We are a purpose-driven company that values our relationship with you over a sale.
While we strive to serve anyone in need, Southwest Exteriors might not be the company you are looking for for your project.
In this article, we want to outline exactly who Southwest Exteriors is and how to know if we are or are not the right contractor for you.
It is important for you to know about us and any company before scheduling your first consultation. The last thing you want is to have to filter through multiple contractors that aren’t your favorite before finding the right one.
Southwest Exteriors is a purpose-driven company.
Before getting into whether or not Southwest Exteriors may be right for you, we want you to know who we are and what we stand for.
Our mission statement is to transform lives by transforming homes for the glory of God. When you do your project with us, we are with you for life.
We pride ourselves on the service after the sale.
If something goes wrong or you are not satisfied with any part of the process, we will do anything and everything we can to make it right no matter if you had your project done last month or last decade.
We value our relationship with you over the transaction of the sale. While of course as a business, financial profit is necessary to continue to grow and serve our clients. However, financial profit is not our number one goal. This is what sets us apart from our competitors.
We work to build trust with our clients through educating them on all products, services, and about us. Whether you choose us for your project or not, we want you to make the best decision for you and want to help you with that decision.
Everything we do we filter through what we call the Four C’s: compassion, communication, cleanliness, and craftsmanship. These are most important to us.
Now that you have a better understanding of our values as a company, you may already have an idea of whether or not we are right for you. Let’s get into some specific points that are important to discuss to help you with your decision.
How to know if Southwest is right for you
The easiest way to look into whether or not we are the right contractor for you is to break it down into categories: what is important to you, your goals, and what your price range is.
1. What company values are important to you?
If you are looking for a one-and-done type contractor that will complete the project and get out of your hair, Southwest Exteriors is not right for you.
Not only is it a part of our core company values to build a lifelong relationship with our clients, but it is included in our lifetime warranty as well. We cover the cost of installation, labor, and materials if anything goes wrong with your product from us for as long as you live in your home.
If having an ensured relationship with your contractor after the project is finished is important to you, then we might be what you’re looking for.
2. What are your goals for the project?
If your goal is to replace your windows with the quickest and least expensive option, and you are not concerned about the longevity of the product, then we may not be right for you.
Part of our Four C’s is craftsmanship. The craftsmanship that goes into the installation is extremely important for a proper installation and to ensure you do not run into any problems in the future.
Because of this, we need to take our time. Rushing through an installation can only result in mistakes and missed steps in the process.
It comes down to whether you are looking for a short-term solution to a project or a long-term investment.
If a thought-out, quality project from the initial inspection to after the installation is what you are wanting, then Southwest Exteriors may be right for you.
3. What is your budget for your project?
If you are looking for the least expensive option for your project we are not the right contractor for you.
We are not the cheapest contractor out there. There are a lot of companies that advertise a window replacement for only $199 a window, and that is pretty inexpensive.
When considering the cost of a project, it is extremely important to look at all that goes into the cost. A window advertised for only $199 might be true, but more often than not, fees are going to be stacked on top of that for installation, labor, and warranty.
Although Southwest Exteriors is on the higher end for home remodeling services, what you are paying for is incomparable to other companies.
When you have a consultation with us, we provide you with the exact penny price it is going to cost for your project, and that includes the product, labor, installation, and a lifetime warranty.
If price range is the most important factor to you to choose the right contractor for your project, make sure you are looking into what all is included in the price.
Like most products and services, what you get is what you pay for in a home remodeling project. The least expensive option is never going to be the highest quality one, and the price of the project is just one piece of the puzzle.
If you are looking at a more expensive contractor for your project and the cost is the only thing swaying you from choosing them, know that most contractors offer different payment plans to make it affordable for you.
At Southwest Exteriors, we have multiple payment options and discounts to fit whatever plan you need. We want you to be comfortable and confident in choosing us and don’t want the cost to get in the way of a quality job done.
If you are looking to pay a little more to get the most out of your home improvement project, then Southwest Exteriors may be for you. What you pay for with us is professional service and installation from the moment you contact us to after the project is complete.
We are in constant communication with you throughout the entire process, and you will never be left in the dark of what is going on.
Are you ready for your next home remodeling project?
When looking for a contractor for your next project, remember to consider what values you are looking for in a company, your goals for the project, and how much you are looking to pay.
It is important to rely on real client reviews when researching contractors. Resources like Yelp, Google Reviews, and Angie’s List are helpful to read company ratings and what clients have experienced.
Whatever your project may be, it is your project alone. If you choose a contractor that is not client-centered and whose only goal is to make a monetary profit, you may end up blindsided with complications before, during, and after the project.
With Southwest Exteriors, our purpose above all else is to serve you. We understand that in the world of sales, there is a tone of distrust. Our goal is to be open and honest with you about everything so you know all you need to know about your project and our processes.
