How to Choose the right Invisible Grille vendor

There are many factors to consider when selecting a company to help you install an invisible grille. In this article, we’ll discuss what are the factors and considerations you’ll need to look out for before finalising on someone to help with the installation.

This list is not exhaustive or ordered in terms of importance. Each homeowner will have their own selection preferences, and might not be here but in general should be similar to these points.

  1. Costs — End of day, it should meet your budget. If cost is too high, homeowners should be exploring competitors for a better offering (assuming you’re not sacrificing on something that is important, refer to our buyer’s guide for more details).
  2. Feedback/Experience from friends and neighbors—Word of mouth is still the most effective form of marketing and we trust the people that shared their feedback. If possible, it is worthwhile to check the actual installation of your friends or neighbors to have the actual look and feel.
  3. Online Social Trust —Oftentimes we don’t have the luxury of benefiting from experience of people close to us. Thus leveraging on the Internet, reviews from owners whom have engaged with the vendors are the next best thing. Forums, Social Media sites, Google reviews, or other review sites are the best places for this. Renohoot provides a curated list of vendors with reviews and would be the easiest approach, compared to sourcing the Internet to find reviews.
  4. Warranty Provided — This is quite an important factor and will save owners a lot of headaches down the line. In general, if a company trust quality of their product and offers a good post sales service, their warranty period should be market norm, if not longer.
  5. Responses of vendor to questions—Similar to an interview, the objective is to make sure the vendor knows what they’re doing. Ask questions that you know is challenging or requires some experience to answer. This will help to filter out those inexperienced companies. If you don’t have an idea what to ask, check out our Buyer’s Guide, other blog post on IVG (particularly on the FAQ) post.
  6. Vendor risk profile — Last but not least, owners should also be looking past surface issues, but looking at hidden red flags that potentially can delay or cause other issues to your purchase. Here in Renohoot, we’ve developed an approach (similar to how Bank’s access our credit score) to check if a vendor will cause potential risk. Hop over here to check it out!
