If you’ve had your windows for a long time or they were poorly installed, you may have begun to experience some unexpected issues. It’s common for old or dodgy windows to become stuck, which is the last thing anybody wants. If it’s stuck in the closed position, you won’t be able to let air into the affected room and your home can begin to feel quite stuffy. A stuck window can also be very serious as it becomes a fire hazard because it’s somewhere that won’t be able to be used as a possible escape route or for smoke to leave the room. It’s annoying no matter which way you look at it, so we’ve provided some quick fix tips to resolve this problem!

Dartford is a town with a rich history of religious, industrial, and cultural importance. It’s also close to London, but is it classified as a part of London? Situated 18 miles south-east of Central London, Dartford actually falls into the shire county of Kent, whilst just shy of being part of London, it isn’t classified as so. Despite this, Dartford is still very closely linked to London.
uPVC windows are increasingly common amongst all forms of buildings thanks to both their sturdiness and thermally efficient properties. Of course, with anything that gets popular, there’s always some misinformation floating about that picks up steam and before long it’s a common misconception among many. In the case of uPVC windows, there’s a fair number of untrue claims and accusations, some more damaging than others.

This is just the beginning and I cant wait to see the final results. I have been looking around the window market for about 5 years now and I think I have had every wide boy in my living room that ever existed from Arthur Daley to Del Trotter, All making promised, spending 4 or 5 hrs happily listening to their own voice and they never listen to the customer and then putting the huge sting in tale by quoting extortionate prices.
Well that all changed when a very nice Chap called Martin, from Fitter Windows rang me, obviously one of the companies I had previously been in contact with had passed on my information but Martin was a breath of fresh air. He Listened, yes I said he listened, he actually heard what I was saying, he wasnt pushy or pompous, he was just a genuinely nice bloke. He rang me the week before I was due to go on holiday, He was patient and said he would call after I got back, which he did but not the min I got of the aeroplane, he waited 2 weeks before he called me.
He came to see me yesterday and was a super nice guys. He took me through everything, step by step, we sighed the paper work and then he had a long drive back to kent, I rang martin at 7.45 to as him a question before the surveyor about Facia's, Martin wrang straight back answering the question and sorted it all
10.30 this morning the surveyor was at my house and he was such a lovely man too, that is all now sorted and my windows will be fitted at the beg of Oct.
Thank you Martin you really are a genuine superstar.
Really cant wait for them to be fitted (pics will follow....... I promise x)read more

Very happy overall with the service. There was a little bit of confusion around the quote and admin side but very promptly responded to. First delivery date was delayed due to broken down van and late arrival on revised install date due to traffic issues but I was kept informed and all went well in the end. Fitters were brilliant. Quality of Windows is excellent. Everything left clean and tidy. Would definitely use again.read more
