What do you need to know about UPVC window and door installation/repair?
The installation of UPVC windows and doors can take around 1-2 days, depending on the size of your home and how many are being fitted. There may well be an initial visit from your local professional to assess the scale of the job ahead of installation, in order to make the process as quick and efficient as possible.
The cost of having a UPVC window or door repaired will depend on the nature of the fault. Replacing individual glazing units can cost as little as £15, though you will need to watch out as many repairers have minimal callout charges. If the damage is extensive you may be told that you need an entirely new door.
It is important to look at the qualifications and experience of your potential tradesmen. Many companies sell themselves as 'experts' on UPVC windows and doors. It can be good to get an assessment from such companies, but do not be pressured into signing anything until you have compared prices. A good sign will be if a tradesman is registered with the FENSA, a government authorised scheme that certifies companies for their competency in the installation of doors and windows. You can also ask for information about their previous jobs: have they worked on properties similar to yours, and do they have reviews from satisfied customers? Finally, you must take the time to check that your tradesmen are adequately covered against accidental damage and liabilities. They should also offer a guarantee in case their work is incorrectly done.
