A service you can rely on

"Through a recommendation, I popped into the office to see if they could help me source a new door handle. Nick was extremely helpful and ordered one for me through a company they use. I will certainly recommend the company to family and friends and I will use them for replacement windows and doors in the future. Many thanks for the free tin of silicone spray!"

"Brilliant local company. Installed a new door for my father (after a recommendation by a friend). Great product, great price, but (& I can not stress this enough) their kindness & care dealing with an elderly gent, especially regarding the guarantee (so both myself as his son & he could have a copy) was amazing. I genuinely did not believe service like this existed any more. Lovely people to do business with & a company I can thoroughly recommend."
