Therefore, when deciding which timber window and door company to choose, the quality of manufacturing should be one of the key factors in the decision-making process. Similarly, if the installation is not to a high standard, the product could be damaged on installation, let in draughts or not operate properly.
One of the easiest ways to ensure that you choose a company who will install high-quality windows and doors is to choose a British window and door manufacturer who also employ their own installers.
Easier to communicate
Choosing a company that both manufactures and installs windows and doors means that you will only need to liaise with one company throughout the work. This helps prevent problems arising from breakdowns in communication between the manufacturing and installation company.
See how the product is made
A major advantage of choosing a British window and door manufacturer is that you can see the product being manufactured. Before placing an order, ask your salesman for a tour of their workshop. This allows you to see the quality of the product being made first hand.
When attending a tour of the workshop, be sure to ask questions. Find out why they use the materials they recommend and how the manufacturing process works.
Greater quality control
Having the manufacturing workshop in the UK allows for greater quality control, as the product doesn’t need to be shipped to the UK. This reduces the potential for damage to occur in transit.
Keeping the specification close to home
By having the same company manage the quality control throughout both the manufacture and installation, you can be confident that the same quality standards are being applied throughout the order.
If any issues happen to arise, which require the product to be returned to the workshop, it is a lot simpler and quicker to fix these issues if the workshop is based in the UK as opposed to being abroad.
Support British manufacturing
Finally, by buying from a UK manufacturing company, you are backing local British businesses, helping create more local jobs and supporting British craftsmanship.
