The Orange County shutters that were put in my home only less than a year ago started to fall apart and had chipping paint. To make matters worse, the company that installed them had gone out of business because they were facing lawsuits from unsatisfied customers. I had no choice but to find a better company that would be able to install shutters while making sure to avoid the pitfalls of the last company. I should have known something was up with that company from the beginning.
I looked at as many customer reviews as I could find online that would give me an idea about the companies that offered shutters. Some of them were eliminated from the running almost instantly because of things like not having insurance, or using bad parts or having rude workers that would show up late for work. I can’t stand things like these, and it just makes a terrible experience for everyone. When you’re paying for a product or service, you should at the bare minimum get professional service.
I was tempted to go with a few companies that insanely cheap prices, but I knew that those prices were too good to be true. Either those companies were using cheap items that would break, just like my old shutters, or there was some other reasons that probably wasn’t legitimate. I was able to find a company with a fair price and good reviews for the shutter installation. Many of their customers had been people who were screwed by the company that went out of business. I’m glad that all of the people who were deceived by that company were able to find a better company for their needs. I need to see if there is some way for me to get in on the lawsuit, because that other company owes me for the shutters.
