Dont let the salesman sell you someting you dont need. They are in it for one reason.
Determining that you wanted new windows was your
choice, and your choice alone.
Most people who decide to buy new windows have a real good reason...
Maybe their windows are falling apart, their windows are real cold, they are losing too much energy, or they don't operate well.
Many times there are no obvious problems with the windows. It may be for purely aestetic reasons, or to just keep their home updated, which we see people do all the time.
Why denegrate window salesmen for wanting to sell windows when you
made that decision and then invited him to your home to get an estimate?
You decided your windows needed to be replaced, not the other way around.
Is a salesman supposed to read your mind and make his own determination of what all your motives are for replacing your windows and then try to talk you out of it?
I can certainly understand someone changing their decision to replace their windows during the looking process, but don't act like the window contractor is the bad guy for wanting to sell you windows, because you
changed your mind and now think you don't need them.
