This also gives you the chance to talk to our team of experts about what you need to consider, so you can be sure to get the best possible product without any compromise on aesthetics, security or energy efficiency.

2. Find a reputable fitter

To make sure you get the most out of your new windows, make sure to look on stockist websites for trusted installers or use sites like TrustATrader. It can be difficult to find good local window installers and with TrustATrader, all installers have been vetted and reviewed independently so you can make the decision based on this. This also makes sure that they have the right skills and standards of workmanship to carry out the window installation. At Trade Windows, we have been transforming Derbyshire homes since 1993 and have completed over 40,000 installations, helping us grow into a valued local business you can trust.

3. Have a site visit

Once you have chosen the right window fitter for you, arrange for them to visit your property and make sure that they measure up correctly and give you a clear timeline for project delivery.

4. Revisit the showroom with your installer to make a final decision

Once you know how many windows and what sizes you need, we recommend revisiting our showroom, possibly with your installer to make a final decision. This is the part where you can choose your window fittings, hardware and glazing. We offer full design flexibility so you can tailor your window installation to your requirements.

5. Make sure you’re clued up on the facts

Rules and regulations in property continue to change, for example the introduction of trickle vents, so make sure that you get everything you need sorted. Buying from a reputable manufacturer assures that you won’t get caught out by any of these. There’s no cutting corners with Trade Windows, as every window installation easily meets the standards and requirements of the industry.

6. Wait for the install

If you’re having all of the windows in your home replaced, then it can be disruptive to your daily routine, which is why sticking to an arranged schedule and the installer keeping you informed if there are any unexpected changes works best. If you’re not planning on being home during the window installation, then be sure to let the installation team know so that they can make arrangements to gain access.
