I would thoroughly recommend Ironglaze, they are reasonably priced, they do a very good job, are Fensa registered, and any problems should you have any, they are on top of it.
Garry W
You or your window fitter do not need to be fensa registered but you will need to pay building regs fees if they are not. You can fit them yourself as long as they meet current building regs.

As a result of having panels installed and our telephone number and some details passed on we get a lot of cold calling. My advice is to ask for an email giving technical details of any proposals. They have not yet complied with that request in our ... [ more ]

Ian W - As a photo-journalist with a wife that works in crime/incident reporting at Police HQ, I have found out enough not to write it off as "Nonsese". I have seen a sick dog first hand (a Red setter) and spoken to it's owner who told me it was ill ... [ more ]
Ian W
So you can't link to anything about missing cats, poisoning of dogs or your expertise at illness diagnosis. You should make it clear that what your saying is hearsay without anything to back it up or people will become unecassarily worried.
