Windows

We are proud of all our installations, windows are carefully installed without affecting the surrounding decor.

Your new windows & doors framework will be manufactured at our own premises.

Our windows are a multi chambered system offering five thermal chambers in order to comply with the new regulations. The profile used is Legend 70mm ‘Unplasticized poly vinyl chloride’ UPVC. We specifically use a 70mm system for strength & rigidity, plus it also has the added advantage of usually matching the thickness of the timber window we are replacing. Legend 70mm is 100% virgin profile and has no reground profile included. It is extruded in the UK. Most existing timber windows measure 70mm therefore our profile fills the same gap, unlike most competitors who use 60mm profiles. Profile blend mixing is done in-house maintaining quality and consistency, so your windows are not likely to discolour or be brittle like the cheaper alternatives!

All frame work will be fully reinforced to the manufacturer’s specification; they will be fully welded with internal glazing bead for maximum security. The sealing gaskets in the windows are post extruded which are formed on the profile at the time of extruding, this eliminats the draught beading seals shrinking back over time and the windows becoming draughty. 

All opening windows will be manufactured with high security pincing locking mechanisms for maximum security. They can be locked in a night ventilation position if required. All side openings will be installed with 90 degree easy clean fire escape hinges. Child safety restrictors can be added to openings if required. Quality cranked locking security handles will be installed; they come in a choice of white, chrome, gold or black. Our locks come with the secure by design accolade; more information is available on our download page.

All waste will be removed from your property, rooms will be fully dust sheeted and vacuumed each day, ensuring you have nothing more to do but to enjoy your new windows and doors.

It also carries the secure by design accreditation and has exceeded BS EN 1670. French doors will have both independent master and slave door Yale locks with a handle set on both doors.

Inner window cills

Most inner cills are in good condition; if this is the case we will install your new windows finishing neatly to your existing cill. There are a couple of alternatives below if required. Internal white UPVC capping cills scribed and installed on top of existing wood cills; this method does not create any adverse effect to your existing décor.

Fascia and guttering

We can also quote for replacing your fascia and guttering. Ogee fascia shown in white below:

We will remove existing guttering carefully and dispose of all waste. We can clad existing fascia and soffit with matching quality boarding, supply and install new square guttering. We check felt run off and replace it if necessary with heavy duty upvc eaves protectors. 

Soffit will be run at 90 degrees to the fascia boarding; this is very time consuming however gives a much better finish. We don't run the board lengthways as it accentuates any discrepancy in the existing soffits and looks uneven! Please note any timber found to be rotten will be removed and replaced before cladding. Dry verge tile edge covers can be supplied for front top gables if required. Please note the majority of the work is carried out from our easy deck platform as shown below saving you the usual £600 plus in scaffolding costs! This unique system has an end leg to span conservatories.

Installation teams

We have several installation teams who are employed directly by R&R Services. They are not subcontractors on piece work. They will install 3 or 4 windows per day usually starting upstairs. They are paid a fixed weekly rate therefore it is of no advantage to rush your windows and perform a substandard job. Please note most of our competitors use contractors on a price per window basis. This forces the fitters to rush the job in order to make a living which often leads to the nightmare stories we have all heard about connected to our industry!

The next step and payment

We do not require a deposit. Your email order confirmation is acceptable enough to place the order. We will return to do a more in-depth final survey at which point you can decide on handle colour, glass patterns ect. As we do not take a deposit we do ask for prompt payment on completion / satisfaction. This can be paid by cheque directly to our installation team or by bank transfer to the details on your final invoice. Cash payment does not help us due to the high bank charges paying cash in over the counter.

All costs inc vat @ current rate of 20%.
