Need advice on starting a window business in massachusetts

#1 Post by tonyc56 » Sat Jan 12, 2008 7:00 am

Hi All,

Happy o8 to everyone... I'm thinking of purchasing a window replacement dealership in Massachusetts...However, I'm still hesitant in making a decision to invest due to the following reasons:

1. I have no window experience...

2. Has the turn down in the economy and real estate market affected
the vinyl window replacement industry here in Massachusetts...
I've heard mixed opinions, some say yes others say no...

3. Would it be difficult for me to learn on how to install replacement
windows..Is there any school located here in Massachusetts that
trains on how to install replacement windows

4. If I were to sub out the jobs to installers...On average what do
installers charge to install a typical double hung window here
in mass...

5. How do I find installers and what qualities should I look for in finding
a good and responsible installer...

6. The dealership that I'm thinking of purchasing carries two lines of
replacement windows---Silverline and Heartland...I was told that
Silverline is a poor quality window, that I should stick with Heartland
which carries a better quality window---is this true...

Any info to the above questions would be appreciated...
