The overall transaction with Stuart Doyle was very friendly and helpful. The fitters were also friendly and efficient. I was so pleased with the quality of the work and the way I was treated that I recommended Betterhomes to my sister and she had the same job done as I have.

Door fitted quickly and efficiently. Problem with water ingress so door adjusted by maintenance engineer but still a little water collecting in threshold. Will keep an eye on it over the next few months.

The quality of the doors and windows we purchased are excellent quality. The French doors are extra wide and I absolutely love them. Andy from waterside windows was very professional and I would recommend his work to anyone. From start to finish he went through every little detail with us and kept us informed throughout. Professional, courteous, polite and punctual - Andy Waterside Windows.

Can I fit a new door to an existing uPVC porch?
There is no reason why you could not fit a UPVC door into an existing frame, but it will depend on the frame thickness and as it will need to be compatible with the design that you choose. Speak to your local installer for further advice.
What are sash windows?
A FlushSash casement window fits true to its frame to give a beautiful flush appearance. The sash closes level into the outer frame, so it sits in line, rather than protruding from the exterior brickwork of your home like traditional Sash Windows. The result is a clean, modern and stylish appearance.
What are the Benefits of uPVC Windows?
There are a number of ways in which uPVC windows can benefit you and your home. Firstly, uPVC windows are low maintenance. The window frames don’t need painting or sealing which significantly reduces the maintenance required over their lifetime, uPVC windows are easily cleaned with soapy water. A key benefit of uPVC windows is that they don’t rot and are resistant to corrosion, this makes uPVC windows extremely long lasting. Unlike metals, uPVC is non-conductive, so your window frames will not transfer heat and contribute to a more consistent internal temperature for your home. Combining uPVC window frames and double glazing makes for highly energy efficient windows. uPVC windows provide excellent acoustic insulation. Double glazed uPVC windows can cut down noise by as much as 70%. Thanks to their integrated locking systems, uPVC windows provide a high level of security for your home. Most uPVC window locking systems lock at multiple points all around the sash and frame. Compared to aluminium and timber alternatives, uPVC windows are low cost. Prices can vary depending on the quality and features of the windows, but you can expect a much more affordable price by choosing a uPVC window.
Can I use a conservatory all year round?

With tough double-glazed windows, window locks and secure external doors with multi-point locking systems, the conservatory should be as secure as the rest of your home. Door, window and movement sensors can be fitted to a conservatory as part of your wider alarm system to provide extra protection for your property.
