CR Windows started trading in 1975, becoming a limited company in 1978. CR Windows has continuously been manufacturing and installing for over 40 years.

The independent warranty is with the Installsure which is based in the UK. This warranty ensures that your installation continues to be insured should CR Windows cease to be a trading company.

Our products are manufactured in our 22,000 sq ft factory using state of the art machinery.

CR Windows employs over 50 local employees, some of whom have been with us for about 40 years.

We request a 20% deposit of the order value. This is a minimum figure that we require, most customers decide to pay between 20 and 30 percent.

All of our products are internally glazed as standard.

All of the old windows and doors we are replacing are removed and placed in a separate recycling skip at our factory. This ‘old’ PVC-u is granulated and recycled by a recycling company in Wales. All of the ‘old’ glass is also placed within it’s own recycling skip also and this is used in the manufacture of tarmac! Hardly any waste from our installations is transported to the landfill sites.

Our fully comprehensive ten year guarantee not only includes all of the components used within your windows, doors and conservatories (i.e. glass, handles locking mechanisms, etc) but also covers any fading on any of the PVC-u materials used.

If you are looking to have a conservatory built onto your property then typically if the projection of the conservatory on a semi-detached house does not exceed 3 metres (4 metres on a detached property) then planning permission is not required.

If your proposed conservatory exceeds either 3 metres or 4 metres then you would have to complete a Neighbour Consultation Scheme Document and this will need to be submitted to your local planning authority. At present there is no applicable fee for this service.

Our Sales advisors will be able to advise and assist you with any planning permission requirements as we have several contacts within the various planning authorities and also some consultants who will, provide any required drawings or plans if required. There is an additional fee for this service and it is typically anywhere between £100.00 – £200.00 depending upon the requirements.

What our customers say

Brilliant service! Thrilled with results and the 2 chaps were very professional and did a great job!

Elaine Mitchell

CR Windows installed a replacement back door, and a double glazed window to replace our Victorian sash in our second floor. They liaised really well with the scaffolders, tidied up and were very personable. A great company to deal with!

Angie Thomas
