For us, it was an integral part of the process as we had essentially ground to roof windows on one side, top to bottom panes in the middle, and walls wrapped with glass around the other half of the house which enclosed the patio.
So we spent a decent amount of time making sure that the options we were deciding on were going to be cost-effective, timeless so as not to be out of ‘fashion’ within the year, and most importantly were installed correctly and beautifully.
Finding the right company to ‘dress’ your home can be daunting, whilst they may have advice and input in terms of suitability ultimately the choice is yours, and they simply install your preferences.

3 Key features of a quality window and door company.
- Experience. Have they been in business long enough to have seen and dealt with all situations possible, are modern designs an issue or they prefer older buildings? The more hands-on experience they have will show not only in their number of years in trade but their customer review comments on their website, so be sure to have a look.
- Quality. This goes hand in hand with reputation because let’s be honest, no-one is going to recommend a company to their family and friends’ if the service and workmanship were not up to scratch, am I right? It is better to choose quality over quantity, as my granny always liked to say, but it rings true. Paying that little bit extra can be all it takes to needing the issues rectified from shoddy work.
- Professionalism. Often customers overlook the fact that the work vehicle is run down, the engineers don’t have uniforms on, or worse they’re grubby and stained, and the tools seem outdated. Ensure the company prides itself in first impressions, this way you know you’ll be getting a job well done as opposed to ‘just another paycheck.’
If you require an installation and not sure where to begin or where to turn then companies such as Fenster Glazing can offer professional advice with unbiased opinions on the appropriate and aesthetically pleasing window and door frames, all the while ensuring they keep up with top customer satisfaction.
You may look at your home and think that the frames, windows, and doors don’t affect the look that much, but you’d be surprised how drastically it can alter the appearance.
It’s all about the look.
The results are determined by a few factors such as colors and materials.

If you have been saving for years to have a home for your design then you should go for it, no matter what others say or think, the main priority is to use a company that will look after you and gives you the quality of work, materials, and customer care you deserve.
A small investment can bring a big return, financially and even more so to fulfill your desires. Make it worth it.
