Behind the sleek styling and colourful finishes can be the world of difference when it comes to how your door is actually made.

Slide and Swing doors are becoming one of the most popular choices for UK homeowners, as a versatile replacement for standard patio doors. One of the main reasons they are becoming so popular is that the slide and swing doors allow you to completely open up your living space. During the lovely, warm summer months you can open multiple doors and let the lovely warm air flow into your home. As soon as the colder seasons start, you can close the doors and keep your home nice and warm, using one door individually to come and go as you please without letting all of the cold air in.
Buying replacement double glazed windows can be a daunting experience. It is a big investment for any home owner and is a product you would hope will last you for years to come. But with so many different double glazing companies in Kent offering a wide range of different products, how do you know which is best for your home?

One of the most popular questions we are asked is how secure are uPVC doors? Home security is important to us all, so it is important we have good quality doors and security to keep out any unwanted visitors. We recently completed an online survey, asking home owners what was the most important thing they looked for when purchasing a new front door for their homes.

One of the most asked questions we always have from new customers is “Why is condensation forming on my old windows”. Stopping window condensation is a common problem for people with old, single glazed windows, or even people with very old, broken double glazed units.

Fitter Windows delivered an excellent service-from the first marketing call to the last finishing touches during the installation.
Without wasting my time Martin guided me to find the best product for me, offered me a. very reasonable quote and stayed in touch all the time to ensure that everything was running smoothly.
The installation team was very professional, efficient and polite.
Thanks to the team for the excellent service!

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
