Top 7 tips for choosing a great double glazing firm

Water on Double Glazed Window

When you’re searching for a double glazing firm to complete your window, door or roofline installation, you may be wondering what you should be searching for. Despite providing the right service to suit your home, there are a number of other factors that make a double glazing firm great. There are plenty of cowboy double glazing traders out there that you need to be wary of. Here are DG Solutions’ top seven tips for choosing a great double glazing firm.


If you have decided that you require double glazing in your home, the first thing you will need to look for is a company with experience. A great double glazing firm will have been in operation for a number of years and have a large portfolio of work to show their clients. This will also mean that they will have had the chance to carry out an extensive variety of projects. With the right experience under their belt and years in delivering a high quality service, a double glazing firm with experience is guaranteed to be a good choice.


If you are searching for an official seal of approval, you should always check a firm’s professional accreditations. Quality accreditations will come from world renowned organisations and are proof positive that your supplier is making a serious commitment in terms of delivering a quality product, service and price. You should always ask your company to back up any accreditation claims with documentary evidence. DG Solutions are accredited by HomePro, REHAU, FENSA and Planitherm.


You should always check to see if your firm offers a guarantee. Windows, doors and roofline products are items that you will only want to buy a few times in your lifetime. When choosing a company, you should check to see that there is a comprehensive guarantee. This is a promise to resolve any problems with their product or service within a fixed period of time. Most customer focused companies will have a guarantee that will add to your rights under consumer law.


The option of a warranty is an invaluable benefit for any customer. Acting as an ‘extended guarantee’, this will cover a wide range of issues with your products should they arise. DG Solutions, for example, offer an all-inclusive 10 year manufacturer’s warranty that is fully backed by our industry’s adherence board, the FENSA. This way, you can always rest assured that a post-sales installation team will be prepared to resolve issues with your double glazing in the future.


When you invest in double glazing products, you want to know that you are receiving the best possible quality. You will also want to know that you will be able to receive these products with bespoke installation options. If you are searching for door or window products especially, you will need to feel assured that you are receiving secure and durable double glazing solutions. You should always ensure that the products you’re provided come with a seal of approval. DG Solutions products come with ‘Secured By Design’ approval from the official police security initiative, as well as maintaining the highest British Standards Institution (BSI) classifications.


A customer that truly cares about their customers will have a well-earned reputation for quality. With a combination of extensive experience, excellent products and high quality customer service – a firm should come with verbal recommendations from friends, family and colleagues. Don’t make a rushed decision by choosing a firm that you have never heard of. A good company will recognise the importance of keeping a happy customer. So do your research to guarantee your firm has the right reputation.


A great way to help you choose a double glazing company is to read previous customer testimonials. A series of honest, positive reviews will help you to feel more confident about their abilities. There is no stronger recommendation you can receive than from a previous customer, so make sure testimonials are easy to find. If the company doesn’t seem to have testimonials or they are only negative, it is probably best to steer clear.
