I am Dean Wanstall one of the company directors. I've been in the glazing and building industry since leaving school.
My first job was as a trainee glazier working throughout London and across the south east.
I then moved into working for a large window installation company for some years then with my father who had his own business roofing and general building, we specialised in Kent peg roofing and oast houses as well as lead, felt and grp roofing systems.
After more than 15 years working for myself as a sole trader we set up as a limited company in September 2017 to allow us to expand the business. My wife, Kate Wanstall, the other company director works alongside me dealing with the administrative and ordering side of the business. When we get really busy Kate even helps with taking tools/materials to site for the various trades.
We supply and fit windows, doors and conservatories in upvc or aluminium in a wide variety of styles. We also run a trade outlet allowing the trade and diy persons to purchase discount windows and doors from us, including bi-fold patio doors.
Our business began due to my trading as a self employed roofer and builder and we still conduct this type of work offering a full domestic and commercial building service. We have close links to a chartered building engineer to draw any required plans so we are able to submit the necessary planning and building control applications.
We are extremely proud of what we have achieved and we always work hard towards building a sustainable company that will stand the test of time.
The fact that we have so many customers that we would even call friends now speaks volumes for our reputation.
