Industry leading performance

We have undertaken major product development, utilising the skills and experience of Universities, suppliers and customers, to create products which really work. Are products are always designed to deliver exceptional guarantees, excellent performance in security and weather testing, and traditional British aesthetics together with setting new standards on sustainability and materials health.

No quibble 10-year guarantee

We take a completely unique perspective on guarantees! We believe that a warranty is a relationship and by respecting that relationship, we save a lot of money on marketing. We are so confident that our windows and doors will perform in the long term, we offer a 10-year no maintenance guarantee with all our painted products. No small print about unachievable maintenance schedules, no exclusions and no “materials only” clauses.

23 years uninterrupted trading

Our guarantees are supported by our trading history dating back to 1998. Although we have grown during that time from a small bespoke joinery shop to a nationally known supplier of high-quality windows and doors, our approach and ownership haven’t changed. We always seek steady and sustainable growth which puts the customer first. Our guarantees have genuine value because we will be here to honour them.

We love to get good feedback from our customers and clients regularly refer to us as, “the nice guys of windows”. We know that windows and doors are a significant investment and we are dedicated to delivering a product you are delighted with. No-one is perfect and if problems arise during the process (regardless of fault), we are quick to respond and work with our customers to find the best possible solutions.

We continue to invest in our Derbyshire manufacturing facility to meet the ever-increasing demand for our products. We carry out every part of the process, from sales, surveying, manufacture, installation through to any aftercare or servicing from Derbyshire with either direct-employed staff or carefully chosen and trusted partner organisations.
