Window Fitters Reading Berkshire (RG1): Independent window fitters in the Reading area can help you with any conservatory installation, glazing repairs and door replacements around the home.
When you've bought off-the-shelf windows and doors from your local builders merchants, a window fitter's skills will be crucial for the installation. As an alternative to dealing with a double glazing company, you can decide on more economic variants of DIY outlet windows, doors and perhaps even conservatories. This will allow you to still enjoy a high quality installation, but instead of paying inflated double glazing company prices, your specialist, local Reading window fitter will get the whole thing done less expensively.
An experienced window fitter will have the specialist safety equipment and tools to make your installation or replacement go smoothly and problem free. When you receive a job quote, it could refer to a "fitter's mate", who'll commonly be necessary to assist with the installation and any heavy lifting.
You should aim to get at least three different quotes (in writing), to give you a reasonable idea of the overall cost of the installation. You also need to make sure that the removal of any builders rubble, broken glass, door frames and old windows, is included in the quotation. In some cases this might not be mentioned in the original quotation and can be a bit of a shock when it's brought up at the conclusion of works.
Ask neighbours and friends for their suggestions about window fitters in Reading, if they have recently had any work done. It's also a good idea to check the professional memberships and experience of any individual or company you're hiring. The bare minimum qualification for a window fitter in Reading, is to hold a CSCS card. CSCS stands for Construction Skills Certification Scheme and demonstrates that your window fitter has the applicable training, skills and qualifications in their particular field.
If a member of either CERTass (Certificate and Self Assessment) or FENSA, any work carried out by that window fitter is covered by the relevant regulating body. In case of any concerns or disagreements in the course of, or after your project, you can call the applicable association for help and assistance.
FENSA has over 9000 members and was established by the Glass and Glazing Federation to provide assistance and promote training and support to glazing companies. FENSA provides mediation between the homeowner and the window fitter if any disagreements or arguments arise regarding the installation. Certass is a UKAS recognized Certification Scheme that evaluates companies and independent contractors competence against set standards.
Both schemes are UKAS (the United Kingdom Accreditation Service) authorised and provide protection for your deposit and external insurances along with any specific company policies and guarantees. Therefore, choosing a window fitter in Reading who is a member of one or other of these 2 recognised trade bodies, is advisable.
Before offering you an accurate estimate, the window fitter will need to do an on-the-spot survey which will include measuring any windows or doors that need replacing. Checking the finer details on a job quote is always a good idea, and you should specifically look for details of any percentage error, given that most window fitting companies will put in a customary margin for error of approximately 10%. When a price has been agreed for the work and a starting date arranged, you'll likely get a request for an upfront deposit, this shouldn't normally be above about 10%.
You are going to need your window fitter to check the measurements, if you are buying your own windows or doors, to make sure that they are the correct measurements to perfectly fit into the available openings. If the window frames are made from timber for example, and they need to blend in with the style of your house precisely, your Reading window fitter may be prepared to build custom frames that are suitable for this purpose. A specialist window fitter in Reading may be able to obtain a price reduction on the windows and doors you want to purchase through their contacts and trade discounts.
Using an assortment of power and hand tools, and aided by the fitter's mate, your window fitter will first of all prepare the workspace and then safely remove any old glazing, doors and additional frames. New door or window units will be firmly fixed in place, making certain they are level and plumb, before being weather sealed.
Using the services of a small, family run business or independent door and window installer in Reading will likely offer you a more personal working relationship during your project.

The attention to detail and more friendly approach of a local family business can make all the difference when you are considering the options open to you for your glazing or construction project. Knowing that a person you're familiar with is on the end of a telephone call if there are any problems, instead of a national or international call centre, can be of priceless reassurance.
When using the services of a local Reading window fitter, you'll typically see the same person from quote, through to the conclusion of the installation, which is a rarer occurrence in these times of corporate greed and apathy. The personal and unique services that this seamless chain of contact provides can't be rivaled by the major double glazing companies that a lot of less informed folks in Reading use. All of the time during your project you will have a familiar face to ensure that any concerns or questions are promptly answered a professional and respectful manner.
From whole home window replacement to cracked window panels, door re-alignment due to warping, or preparing a pre-existing window in a bathroom or kitchen for the installation of an extractor fan; no task is too large, or too small for your local window fitting company in Reading.
