What happens if there’s a problem with my new windows and doors?
Very simple, we ask that you check your windows and/or doors prior to removing the old frame. It’s unlikely you’ll find a problem because all of our products are rigorously quality checked before they are delivered. But just in the same way that you’d check your parachute before you jump out of a plane, not after, it’s the same fitting windows and doors. Have a look at them, make sure everything is as you ordered it, that the specification is correct, that everything opens and works properly, that you’re happy with the standard of the sealed units (glass), that there are no imperfections, that everything lines up as you would expect and that generally you’re happy that everything is as it should be, and don’t forget to read the Installation Instructions in full, hold items up to the light and don’t install when it’s getting dark. It may take a few minutes to fully check each item but it’s normal practise in the industry because once you remove the old frame you’re past a point of no return. Ok, so let’s say you’ve found something that you want to query. First port of call is to quickly send an email to our customer services department with your invoice number and what you’d like to query. They’ll probably reply with a couple of pertinent questions to see if there is a potential genuine problem. Worst case scenario, well as we don’t employ service engineers, we’re a Supply Only Company after all, we’ll come out, pick up the item and bring it back in to our factory for inspection and repair or replace if necessary. If unnecessary we’ll organise with you to drop it back out to your house, naturally there would be a charge for the collection and re-delivery in the event no problem was found, equally this, of course, wouldn’t cost anything if there had been a manufacturing error. Don’t forget, we’re making your windows and/or doors to measure so we can’t just send out a new one as this would be unreasonably costly and our prices would go up, this is why we would need to reassure ourselves and yourself that there is a genuine problem, another reason why we’d collect them in the event of a query. We manufacture all our goods to a commercial standard and would check to this standard if we bring them back in. You can be assured that our excellent product knowledge nurtured over years in the trade will ensure a fair assessment. And that’s it, we check them, you check them before you fit them and if there’s a problem we’ll bring them back in to inspect and replace if necessary, like we said, very simple!
THE GLASS & GLAZING FEDERATIONS (GGF) VISUAL QUALITY STANDARD FOR GLASS
A totally flawless piece of glass is very rare. If you look enough at any piece of glass, you will almost certainly find a minor blemish. The question that has to be answered is, is the flaw or mark of such a nature that it spoils the appearance of the window.
In an attempt to help resolve what can be a contentious issue, the Glass and Glazing Federation has devised the following test to enable both customer and glazing companies to examine glass against objective standard.
HOW TO DO A PROFESSIONAL CHECK
Stand in the room no less than 2 metres away from the IGU and look directly through them.
- For toughened, laminated or coated glasses, stand no less than 3 metres away.
- Do so in natural daylight, but not directly towards the sun and with no visible moisture on the surface of the glass.
- Where it is not possible to stand at the right distance then stand as far away as you can from the IGU.
- Exclude 50mm wide band around the edge of the glass from the check.
- Glass must be viewed at 90 degrees to the window.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN VIEWED AS DESCRIBED
Flat transparent glass, including laminated, toughened (tempered) or coated glass (low 'E') is acceptable if the following are neither obtrusive nor bunched:
- Bubbles or blisters
- Fine scratches not more than 25mm long
- Minute particles
The obtrusiveness of blemishes is judged by looking through the glass, not at it, under natural light. It must be understood that the glass used in double glazing is a processed glass, and so as a consequence, blemishes are to be expected.
Insulating glass units with optical defects such as smears, fingerprints or other dirt on the cavity faces of the glass, or extraneous material in the cavity are unacceptable, except in some cases where small particles of desiccant can be seen.
Toughened glass may show visual distortions which are accentuated by reflections in double glazing. Such surface colourations and patterns do not indicate a change in physical performance.
Low emissivity coating may produce transient visual effects. In some lighting conditions the coating may look like a transparent film or produce a haze, ie a cloudy look to the surface. When light coloured objects such as net curtains are placed close to the glazing they may look slightly darker.
