Your home is your castle! It's a place where you want to feel comfortable and relaxed and it needs to work on a practical level too. Buying new windows and/or doors is a big purchase decision and you'll want to get it right first time. Along with the design, the quality of the fit is the most important element of any project and the one that will truly make the difference between you being satisfied or delighted with your purchase. There are several ways to go about replacing your windows and doors, from buying directly from a national firm which will supply and fit the windows, to hiring a smaller, local firm who will source the windows themselves. Look for firms that are registered with national bodies FENSA or CERTASS, which aim to raise the standards of the industry and promote quality tradespeople.
