Quality. It’s a word we hear in advertising and marketing all the time. Many people say “quality over quantity” and “make sure to get quality products.”
I want to address the quality of products when remodeling. We all learn from mistakes (at least we are supposed to). One thing I have learned is not to cut corners when remodeling. Most people get two or three estimates for remodeling projects. It is human nature to probably lean toward the lowest price to save money. There’s nothing wrong with that, and over the years, I’ve done that myself.
However; I have learned from my mistakes. There’s a reason some of the big box stores sell windows on their end caps for $159. Don’t get me wrong, some of these products serve a purpose, but they are lower quality.
Your home is your castle, not a cabin “up north.” Everyone knows higher quality products, like windows, doors, countertops, cabinets, siding, roofing, well everything that Callen designs and remodels, will cost a little bit more than what you’ll find at big box stores.
When installed properly by the professionals at Callen, these high-end products will last for a long time, and you likely will not have to worry about replacing them again. It’s why the manufacturers are comfortable providing longer life warrantees than we have ever seen. Talk to the professionals at Callen about these lifetime warranties. The companies would not offer them if they were not confident in their product’s performance. Callen believes in these products so much that on top of the manufacturer’s material warranties, Callen provides a Lifetime Workmanship Warranty to give you the peace of mind that your products were installed right the first time.
In your own life, you can probably think about when you saved a few dollars and regretted it down the road. Believe me, when the project is all done, you’ll be happy that you chose quality.
