Who will install the windows? Most window companies will offer a supply and install service. Those that don’t will be able to put you in touch with experienced, professional installers.
Carrying out the survey also means they will have manufactured all the replacement windows to the exact size needed to replace the old frames – again minimising time on site.
If you’re worried about your home being a potential target for burglars, then it’s definitely worth asking your window supplier if the company’s products are Secured by Design (SBD) accredited.
SBD is an official UK Police initiative supporting the principles of 'designing out crime.' If your window supplier has this accreditation it means they are authorised to supply windows and doors with an optional Secured by Design endorsed upgrade that includes extra security.
