Here are some objective questions you should ask in your own interests to help choose the best supplier for you.
You can download a PDF brochure version to take with you for comparison.
Are products manufactured locally to support local businesses and protect jobs in Cornwall?
Are frames 70mm deep and internally beaded for maximum security, strength and rigidity?
Are all frames normally fully reinforced with aluminium alloy or recycled uPVC, not galvanised steel, to avoid rust?
Are glazing gaskets co-extruded and welded, to avoid shrinkage or dislocation, and ‘low line’, avoiding ugly black lines around glass and panels?
Are all locks and screws used in manufacture made of stainless steel, to avoid rust?
Are all hardware items screwed into the reinforcement (not the plastic) and all locks 3 directional, with a £500 cash back offer if forced entry is gained due to product failure?
Is glass sourced mainly in Cornwall, manufactured to the relevant British Standard and ‘Kitemarked’, with a ‘U’ value of 1.2 W/m2/oC, and an option to achieve energy saving ‘A’ rating of 1.0 W/m2/oC?
Can products be supplied in any one of the 12000 RAL colours, painted on their premises in their own dust-extracted and heated spray booth?
Is it an established and reputable business, in the same ownership and trading since, say, 1985? (NB. Well over 100 double glazing companies have ceased trading in West Cornwall during this period.)
Are guarantees fully honoured and free of charge for 10 years, meaning absolutely no hidden charges later?
