Book a home consultation

The next step is to arrange a home consultation. A member of our expert team will visit your home. They’ll talk you through the window styles and colours. They’ll also discuss the energy efficiency of your aluminium windows and any security enhancements you would like to make.

As part of our personalised consultation, we will also take detailed measurements of all your windows and make a note of all the unique features of your home and window installation project.

Rest assured, there will be no hard sell. The aim will be to answer any questions you may have and help you choose the windows that are right for you.

Your no-obligation quote for aluminium windows

Using all the information from your home survey consultation, our team will draw up a detailed quote. It will include all elements involved in manufacturing and installing your aluminium windows. We’ll also outline any optional extras, such as our servicing package.

As before, there will be no high-pressure tactics to force you to accept the quote. We can also amend or update the quote if there’s any element of the aluminium window specification you’d like to change. If and when you’re happy with the quote, we’ll be delighted to move to the next stage.

Manufacturing your aluminium windows

Once you’ve formally accepted our quote, we move to the manufacturing stage. All windows are manufactured to order in our Uxbridge factory by our skilled fabrication team, who all take pride in their work. Depending on how busy we are, this could take around four to six weeks, although sometimes it will take less time and sometimes more.

Once your windows have been manufactured, they undergo rigorous quality control checks to ensure they meet all industry standards and will enhance your home.

Scheduling the installation of your aluminium windows

While your windows are being manufactured, a member of our team will be in touch to arrange a date for our installation team to fit your aluminium windows.

Installing your aluminium windows

The next stage is to install your aluminium windows. How long the installation will take will depend on factors, such as the complexity of the installation and the number of aluminium windows you are having installed.
