Installation of 2 Seceuroglide Original insulated roller shutters in Jet Black.

An excellent experience from start to finish. John and the installers were great and couldn't do enough to make sure we were happy at every stage. A few tiny marks were found on slats (from transit or manufacturer) and they were all replaced a few days later without any fuss. Highly recommend.

Installation of Alutech Trend Sectional garage door in Golden Oak

These people are experts in their profession, of all the contenders they stood out as being knowledgeable, confident and practical. When the door arrived they gave me their plan of action (including extra building work) and kept to it. Installation was all done in 1 day, it looks brilliant. When I had a query they came immediately to adjust the door to my request. Couldn't ask for better service, thanks John and team.
