What Safety Procedures Do We Follow?
People had to make adjustments to their ways of living and communicating to help prevent the spread of the virus. At Vizion Windows & Doors, we are making adjustments to the way we work.
Here are some of the rules we have introduced in order to keep our team and our customers safe:
- Cleaning your hands as much as possible
- Not shaking hands during greetings or goodbyes
- Keep yourselves at a distance from one another and our customers
- Wearing a surgical mask (by customers’ request)
- Wearing disposable gloves (by customers’ request).
We do not show window samples during in-home consultations at this time and we are doing our best to accommodate outside consultations, however, it is not always possible.
We almost always need to come inside in order to measure the windows, especially if it is a two-story house. Sometimes, it is possible to take rough measurements by measuring just the window openings, and in some cases that would be enough to provide an accurate estimate.
We have been asked if it would be possible for the customers to measure the windows themselves and provide us with the numbers, but it is not a good idea. One of the reasons is that the homeowners are not familiar with the glass tempering codes and other technical details that are critical for a successful window replacement.
Whether you are ready to start your window replacement project now or have questions about replacing windows during COVID-19 pandemic, give us a call at 832-483-3249.
