Excellent service given by friendly and professional staff. The quality of work carried out was done efficiently - Left very neat and tidy.
This was the 2nd time I'd used Dorset Windows. Their fitting is very good, the product is a good solid and attractive range at a competitive price. On both visits, one exterior, one interior, when they had gone you wouldn't have known they'd been, it was left spotless.
Excellent service. Informative. Prompt supply and fit. Problems with manufacturer quickly remedied. Very friendly family run business. Warranty delivered by hand with flowers, which was a nice touch.
Friendly family service, all appointments kept on time. Workmen friendly and polite, did a good job and left everything clean and tidy when they had finished. This is the third time we have used this company.
The quotation was very straight forward and understandable with no pressure selling. The work was done on time to a high standard to the specification of the order. The installers did the work efficiently and in a friendly manner.
Workmen turned up on time, completed work on schedule. Clean and tidy throughout, all redundant material taken away on completion. No mess inside or out. An excellent job.

First date made and kept to look at job. Dates and jobs given and kept to. Overall i would recommend this company. I have used them 3 times in all.
Good company to deal with. Fitters worked hard and were polite at all times. Any issues were discussed and resolved in a constructive way.
How refreshing to have dealt with a company that treats their customers with respect, no pressure, and supply an excellent product.

This was the 2nd time I have used Dorset Windows and as before the service and quality of work was at the top. These comments are from someone with over 40 years spent in the construction industry.
Fast, efficient service with polite staff. They kept me informed of any dates or time changes at all times, which was mostly due to the weather.
The job was done with a minimum of disruption. The two operating got on with the job, stopping only for lunch, we were grateful to have two pleasant young men working on our home.
I would recommend using this company. The fitter were polite and clean, nothing way too much trouble for them. From start to finish it went smoothly. I would rate the company 10 out of 10.
One 4 panel and one 8 panel circular 1936 wooden bays and one front door replaced with minimum mess considering poor weather conditions. Products supplied excellent and soundproofing is very good considering main road location. Very little repair work required just paint re-touching. Installers were very efficient and polite and left the site spotless. Would highly recommend Dorset Windows.
My 2016-fitted window locking mechanism was not working. I phoned; the bloke was out within a couple of hours and worked the magic, free of charge. Very good customer service.
