Technical & Installation

Can your windows be installed into ‘listed’ properties?

To date the best result we have had is having permission to install them to the sides and rear of a listed property. Generally the consensus when asking about PVC windows is ‘no’ however it is always worth a try. If you find that you may require some additional information from Quickslide directly, please just give us a call. We will always do what we can to help.

Have you ever had your windows installed in conservation areas?

Yes. Conservation areas are sometimes a bit of a sticking point, but on the whole we have had great success. I am sure you will appreciate that each area is different and the majority of the time you are reliant on one specific individual to give you green light but in our experience we do seem to be having more and more success. My suggestion however would be to go with a wood-grain finish, most conversation areas I have dealt with tend to like the white wood-grain finish opposed to the smooth white PVC.

I have purchased and installed them myself but how do I get a FENSA certificate?

Contact your local authority, tell them that you have changed the windows. They will arrange to come out and inspect and charge you a small fee.

Can I have trickle vents and safety restrictors fitted post manufacture?

Yes you can but it will be costly. Both of these items are simply not designed to be fitted afterwards they must be included at the quotation stage. If you want to fit them afterwards then it would usually result in a new glazed top sash, so try to get this right to start with.

Where can I find a trusted installer of your products?

We offer installation in West Yorkshire and the York area, outside of that you can find one of our trade partners who will be able to supply and install.
