Window fenestration is critical to the appearance of your home. Get them right and they blend in like they were there from the day it was built. Get them wrong and it’s a painful eyesore you’ll either have to live with or pay to rectify.
We promise to provide you with as much information as possible about the choices you have and to discuss any aspect you may have concerns about.

Built To Last And Tested To Prove It
The (BBA) is the UK’s major authority offering approval and certification services to manufacturers and installers alike.
Consistant Production Standards For Every Window
BBA certification tests confirm the products tested are durable, however companies must guarantee consistency of production and that they use the same products that satisfied the BBA testing.
When Security Matters
The Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) set up Secured by Design (SBD) to encourage the building industry to adopt crime prevention measures in housing.
A Rated as Standard
BFRC is the British Fenestration Ratings Council and they decide how to interpret energy efficiency calculations for the whole of the UK. All our windows are A rated as standard, but we can offer C rated which is still the industry standard requirement.
Only the Best is Good Enough
The Energy Savings Trust can only recommend the highest performing companies so only the best products that get to be Energy Savings Trust recommended.
All Our Sash Windows Are CE Compliant
CE marking indicates that a product is compliant to EU laws so that it can be traded anywhere within the EU.
Made in the UK
We have always selected UK suppliers for our parts, components and machinery, however, following the referendum decision to leave the EU it is even more important that we continue this stance.
Our sash windows are manufactured at our factory in Essex.
