Altus windows news update

This article was added on Monday 13 March 2017

Just a bit of an update on our whereabouts.

 

Conservatories are proving to be really popular at present with people extending and adding to their properties instead of moving house.

We are still fitting many front and back doors too, mainly Composite and Rockdoors.

Anthracite Grey is hugely popular at present as is Black and Chartwell Green however we do offer a wide choice of colours and even fitted a bright yellow front door and a rasberry pink cottage style last month that both looked really striking.

If you are unable to find the appropriate colour on the website then please do ask as we can normally manage to accomodate you.

Something we do offer which people seem to like is the number of your property etched into the glass.

It can either be at the side of the door or above the door if you have a panel. There are some examples of this on our facebook page too.

The majority of our work is still fitting lovely new windows.  There is much more variety now than there used to be with colours, glass patterns and fancy handles etc so people can be more creative with their properties and ideas.

There is a lot of positive feedback and reviews on our facebook page as customers seem to find it easier to comment there. So if you would like a bit more information about us then please check out our page.

Best Quality @ lowest prices

This article was added on Wednesday 13 July 2011

Photo: Best Quality @ lowest prices

Over the last few months, it has been a very testing time for Double Glazing companies in Leicestershire. Due to the rising cost of living and uncertainty of the future, there has not been the same level of work available for companies to compete for.

Inevitably, this has caused some more casualties (companies failing and leaving customers with uncompleted work or without a decent guarantee).

To avoid being in a vulnerable position ourselves, we have gone back to the very basic business fundamentals that have always kept us on the straight and narrow.

Give the customer the best job at the best price!! Simple??

To achieve the best job, we have to instal the most up to date quality products available i.e. Duraflex A-rated high security windows.

They have to be fitted to the highest standards i.e. Fully employed, trained quality fitters.

We offer the best guarantee.. 10 years comprehensive (insurance backed).

And we have to be efficient in every way to keep our overheads low so that we can offer amazing prices.

Can you trust us to deliver our promise? No deposits required..Payment upon satisfaction..thousands of installations over 27 years!! Yes you can...

If you would like to talk to me directly, please feel free to call me directly on my mobile phone 07805 467708.

Thanks for reading... John

The Benefits of Pay-As-You-Earn Window Fitters

This article was added on Tuesday 01 March 2011

Photo: The Benefits of Pay-As-You-Earn Window Fitters

The replacement window market has always been affected by the demand for "fine weather" installations during the summer months and lack of demand in the winter months. Since the downturn in the economy, this summer boom seems to have shortened and the winter famine has got longer and harder each year.

It is common industry knowledge that almost without exception window fitters are paid on a sub-contract basis, earning a set price for each window or door that they install. As the sales departments claim that they use "their own fitters", it is common practice for the firm to provide a van to make the visual suggestion that they are indeed employed by the firm.

The downside to this is huge, with both negatives for the company and the customer. Sub-contractors need to fit between five and seven windows per day to make the job pay a realistic wage that will cover the usual commitments that most of us with families have. Having been a window fitter for many years it is my considered opinion that an average of three windows per day is achievable on a permanent basis. This enables the fitters to remove the existing window more carefully and spend more time making sure that the new window is fitted to the very highest standards.

Fitting at this pace also means that the company has less work to find to keep the fitters busy, and that they will rarely be called back to correct work that is sub-standard. This has a positive effect on the company's sales effort, as customer satisfaction means that they will get more recommendations, meaning less expensive marketing.

In short, the cost savings mean that the premium that has to be charged for a company to employ its fitters is not as large as you would think, but the benefits are really positive for everybody. The customer gets a first rate job, happy employees work better are more loyal, and the company cements its local reputation for quality and longevity.

We have been practicing this for several years, and although we can tell that we are in difficult times, we are still in profit and paying our bills on time! That is quite a feather in our cap when taking a look at the industry in general.
