Servicing and repairing of sash windows

Verified Review

I was well informed when I first contacted them and kept up to date when booking. The 2 workmen were polite, efficient, tidy, and talked me through all the work they had done before leaving. I am very pleased with the result. Having eliminated the drafts my house is 0.5 to 1oC warmer.

Very pleased with the finished work and the way it was completed. Team focussed on the details from quote through to final part of a sash being replaced.

Replacing multiple sash windows

Although there was a slight delay to the start date, once the wheels were in motion, it was a very slick job. Mo was excellent at explaining what they were doing and the process. They were very tidy, thorough and the workmanship was excellent. We can't believe the difference having double glazed sash windows has had on keeping the house warm! We had many quotes, but they were extremely competitive and Nicky was very quick with drawing up a well detailed quote. We will definitely use them again to finish /repair the remaining windows that we have yet to do.

Replacing rotten casement window

Verified Review

Allwood Sash Windows did a great job taking out my rotten casement window to supply and fit a new hardwood one in its place. They worked hard and efficient, tidying up afterwards, were very polite and I would recommend them for any sash window or casement window work.
