Enjoy a graceful & vintage home by upgrading your windows

The graceful aesthetics of traditional timber sash windows have always been overshadowed by the tiresome maintenance issues that unfortunately came with them. Thankfully, Spectus Window Systems have revolutionised the vertical sliding sash market; flawlessly merging the picturesque cottage-style look with top quality uPVC performance thermal & acoustic efficiency like no other.

Retaining the basic form & proportions that the classic sliding sash is renowned for, this sleek window option offers effective ventilation qualities via the two crafted sliding panes. Substantially complementing period properties whilst adding a provocative heritage twist to contemporary homes, you couldn’t ask more from a vertical sliding sash window!

"Excellent delivery of service and installation (11 windows and 1 door). Thank you Tom for a job well done! Clean and very efficient. We were recommended by word of mouth to use Doors and Windows and would not hesitate to recommend this company ourselves. Many thanks."

"Doors & Windows ( Exeter) have provided a first class service from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble and when it came to a small problem it was sorted immediately without any hesitation. I would thoroughly recommend Nick, Rob and the team. It’s so pleasantly refreshing to find a company who put their customers first. Thank you."

"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!"

- Sue M. 5

"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."

- Ashley D. 5

"Nick and his team fitted some new doors and windows at the back of our lean to. The service from start to finish was excellent and the new doors and windows make the lean to look like a new room! Would highly recommend."

We shall be almost certainly be putting an order in shortly. Cannot recommend this company more highly to anyone thinking of new windows or doors should definitely give Nick a call."
