Unless you're someone who uses window fitters day in day out you'll find, as with most trades, there is no correlation between the price you pay and the quality of the job you get. It seems to be pot luck, even down to which fitting team the company send to do the job.I thought it was a little expensive but not sure if bay windows justified that.
Mate fitted my doors from them. Put back door in. Fine. Front door-no letter box? Said didn’t have time to correct. Mate waited to to see if they would come out, nope. Woke up every day for a week by deliveries.I live in the CLS area and asked the next door neighbour where he got his doors done as they looked canny and he said it was BMW on Stella Gill but said he WOULDN'T recommend them. Had no issues initially but then had a couple of problems and had a hassle trying to get them back out but apparently it's a family firm and it was the son he had been dealing with. When he started kicking off a bit and the dad found out he sorted it out no problem.
Hence, I'm still looking for someone so will watch this thread with interest.
There’s one above I’d avoid like the plague !I use a lad who’s a one man band who not many know but he’s the best in the business.Be it ally doors ,roof lanterns ,pvc he knows the score and I never have one come back with him.
I’ll not give his name out incase one of my competitors is watching.
I’d go for W windows
out of all the ones who manufacture etc in the town.
I’ve had a quote off Wearside Windows, got to say the bloke has been spot on so far.
Called and quoted when he said he would and the price seems very competitive. The gear they use looks good quality too.
Unless NE&C pull something spectacular out the bag I’ll be using WW.
I got a feeling the bloke (Arthur) is a trustworthy kind of bloke too.
tell Arthur and there’s a good chance he’ll match it.Ive now got NE&Cs quote in. It is £250 cheaper than WW.
Who and why?
Never would do that, not my style. I know a fair price when I see it and he said he wouldn’t want to lose the job over a few quid. He talks a great game and can tell he knows his onions which is worth more to me anyway.tell Arthur and there’s a good chance he’ll match it.
I would tell him the truth like, if you go in daft low I doubt he would
MDF sills are way better than placca ones, aye.Got mine fitted by Wearside Windows today. The lads were really nice and topper work. Dust sheets down and cleaned up after themselves.
Weren’t the cheapest quote (by a couple of hundred quid) but the windows are spot on and like I say, really nice and respectful lads.
Even went out and swapped the UPVC sills for wooden ones for nothing extra, removing the stone sills that were in.
Would recommend them for anyone considering new windows and doors etc.
