We’ve been improving homes in Derbyshire since 1993

Author: Andy Ball


We’re celebrating 25 years of transforming Derby homes this year!

We’ve been transforming homes in and around Derby for an amazing 25 years! Our expertise of double glazed windows first took Derby by storm back in 1993, and we’ve had an incredible quarter of a century since then.

In 1993, Derby needed quality double glazed windows and doors and Trade Windows came along.

Armed with just a pencil and ruler, two members of staff and a virtually empty workshop, our founder Paul Brighouse had one dream – to make Trade Windows a success. It worked, and in 2018, Paul was recognised for his hard work and success when he won Entrepreneur of the Year at September’s East Midlands Chamber Awards.
