When it comes to replacing windows and doors, choosing the right installer is crucial. The choice can sometimes feel bewildering with everything from national companies, and regional ones such as Glevum to “one man band” builders that also install windows and doors. While national installers may be household names, there are many reasons why you may opt for a regional installer for your window and door needs. In this blog, we’ll explore the top ten reasons why regional installers are a better choice.

Local Expertise

Regional installers have a deep understanding of the local area, building regulations, and architectural styles. This expertise ensures that they can provide tailored solutions that are perfectly suited to your specific needs, considering factors like weather conditions, energy efficiency, and design requirements.

Personalised Service

With regional installers, you can expect a more personal and attentive approach. They often have a smaller customer base, allowing them to focus on individual needs and offer a higher level of customer service. You’re more likely to have direct access to the decision-makers, ensuring clear communication throughout the installation process.

Faster Response Time

Regional installers are generally more responsive and efficient than national companies. They are typically located closer to your home, which means they can provide quicker assistance, from initial consultation to project completion. This promptness ensures a smoother and more convenient experience for homeowners.

Local Reputation

Regional installers rely heavily on their local reputation to thrive in their area. They prioritise customer satisfaction and maintain a strong track record of successful installations. By choosing a regional installer with a well-established reputation, you can have greater confidence in the quality of their workmanship and after-sales support.

Supporting Local Economy

When you choose a regional installer, you contribute to the growth of your local economy. By supporting local businesses, you help create jobs and stimulate economic development in your community. It’s a win-win situation as you receive top-notch service while making a positive impact on your area.

Flexibility and Customisation

Regional installers often have more flexibility in accommodating your specific requirements. They can offer a wider range of customisable options in terms of window and door designs, colours, hardware, and finishes. This allows you to tailor the final product to your preferences, creating a unique look for your home.

Competitive Pricing

Contrary to popular belief, regional installers can often provide competitive pricing compared to national companies. Their lower overhead costs and focus on local markets enable them to offer cost-effective solutions without compromising on quality. By obtaining quotes from regional installers, you can potentially save money on your window and door installation. Whilst sometimes a “one man band” installer can be cheaper, do they have the same experience, level of skill and after-care service?

Local Regulations Compliance

Building regulations and codes can vary from region to region. Regional installers have an in-depth understanding of the local rules and ensure that your installation meets all necessary compliance requirements. This knowledge helps streamline the process, avoiding delays and potential complications.

Community Involvement

Regional installers are deeply invested in their local communities. They actively participate in community events, support local charities, and establish strong relationships with their customers. By choosing a regional installer, you become part of this community-centric approach and contribute to a sustainable and supportive ecosystem. Glevum is active supporter of the local charity and sporting community.

After-Sales Support

Regional installers are more accessible and responsive when it comes to after-sales support. In case of any issues or concerns, you can expect a prompt resolution, often with the same individuals who handled your installation. This level of personalised care ensures that you receive ongoing support and peace of mind long after the project is completed.

So, which will you choose?

While national installers may have their merits, regional installers offer a range of benefits that make them the preferred choice for window and door installations. Their local expertise, personalised service, and commitment to the community set them apart, providing homeowners with exceptional value, reliability and high-quality products.

A truly professional company, who respected our home, were courteous and helpful when dealing with us.

M. Wear (Gloucester)

Excellent service from start to finish. Well explained on the initial home visit and questions answered fully. Easy to make payments and such a professional and pleasant experience. I would recommend to others and would definitely use the company again.

B Rollins (Gloucester)

Glevum Windows and doors are of excellent quality and the fitters, Matt and Dean were both quick, efficient and tidy workers. We found them both friendly and polite. We would not hesitate to recommend the Company and the service they provided.

N Harris (Pershore)

A very personal service; I felt valued as a customer and they listened to what I wanted. Excellent quality of product and service. I decided not to go with a larger well-known brand as they did not provide the same personal service in the quotation stage.

J. Miller (Symonds Yat)

Excellent everyone was professional and yet friendly. I felt all were giving me good service and I felt a valued customer.

D. Morse (Lydney)

Always helpful and courteous whichever department one is speaking with.

Fitters are skilled and careful. Products are not the cheapest on the market but they are of the best quality and extremely good value for money.

R. Savage (Worcester)

Excellent service from start to finish, we had secondary Glazing fitted into our dental practice. Glevum attended when they said they would, completed the job with minimum disturbance to the daily running of the practice, and left their work place clean and tidy. The glazing has made such a difference, staff are much warmer and the radiators have been turned to low.

H. Pugh (Gloucester)

Glevum were prompt in quoting for the work. The order was placed and doors and windows far more quickly than other companies were able. The fitting was completed to a high standard. I'm very happy with the work and product!!

K. Smit (Bristol)

So happy with installation, can really feel the difference in room temperature. Fitters were excellent, very pleasant and left everywhere clean and tidy. Very professional job. Would certainly recommend. Thankyou Glevum.
