Full house installation with flush sash windows

A huge thank you to Scott and Damien for doing an amazing job installing my windows. They were prompt, attention to detail and cleaned up after themselves. Nothing was too much trouble. I have no hesitation in highly recommending the team at GHW – thank you. 😃

“We had an old set of wooden garage/workshop doors replaced with a set of aluminium framed bi-folding doors. Communication throughout was great and it was quick and easy to get a quote and then set a date for the work to be carried out. The installers were extremely friendly and professional, and we couldn’t be happier with the work they carried out.”
