There are so many home improvement companies in the market place, all offering a wide range of bespoke, quality products and conforming to the latest legal requirements. But why would you choose one over any of the others?
We believe the answer is in looking after our relationship with you.
At Cherwell, we’ve spent many years investing time and money in the way we do our work, so that we have the information at our fingertips to provide you with excellent service – before, during and after you place an order with us.
We can book an appointment for someone to visit you at a time to suit you during your first call to us. You don’t need to wait for a call-back.
We can often prepare a quote instantly in your home – you can even see your design come to life with our CAD software or place an order with us, without leaving your home.
We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that materials are delivered correctly and on time and we track your order so that you can be kept up-to-date with the progress of your project.
Post-installation, our service department is second to none.
Should you have a problem, we can usually order replacement parts from your original records, only sending the engineer equipped to complete your repair.
So what exactly are Energy Efficient Windows? They are windows that help to contain and conserve heat within the home, keeping out wind and rain, reducing condensation and yet allowing natural “free” energy – the warmth of the sun – to heat the home. They can be made using any frame material – aluminium, PVC-U, timber, timber-alternative or even a combination of materials.
With carbon emissions high on the global agenda and the current high cost of fuel, we are all looking for ways to make our homes more energy efficient.
Each window will have its own unique label of either ‘A’ or ‘C’ rating. The current minimum to comply with building regulations is ‘C’, however if you decide to have the most efficient windows on the market, we can upgrade you straight to ‘A’ rated. At Cherwell, we license all our own installations with our own in-house labels, all geared towards giving you the peace of mind that you’re dealing with a trustworthy and reputable company.
Next on your checklist when choosing your installation company is ensuring they are FENSA (or another recognised certified company) registered. At Cherwell we self-certify all of our window installations through FENSA. A recognised industry brand to all local authorities and the Government. We are continually vetted by FENSA to ensure we are adhering to building regulations and service.
If you are not offered a FENSA certificate be sure you’re not choosing one of the many unregistered one man bands in the market as you will be faced with problems if ever you come to sell your property.
From the 1st July 2013 it has become a requirement for all window and door suppliers to CE mark their products. Please see below our Declaration of Performance certificates:
