Finding an installer you really trust to fit your new uPVC windows can be difficult, especially with the media making a mockery of sneaky installers. Take the 2017 BBC series ‘White Gold’ for example, the first episode is named ‘Salesmen are Like Vampires’…which doesn’t particularly fill you with confidence, does it?

Well, we are here to make sure that your installer provides a home improvement that defies any detrimental stereotypes (and isn’t anything like the ‘White Gold’ guys). Simply use the checklist below to ensure that your home is fitted with the highest quality uPVC windows – by an installer you can trust.

1. Are they secure?

Every DGN dealer is an approved installer of the UK’s most trusted manufacturer of secure locking systems, Yale. So, we can assure you that our locks will provide you with a secure system that is guaranteed to prevent forced entry into your home.

We are highly confident that our optional Yale Shootbolt Locking system will stand the test of time and resist forced entry. Plus, in the unlikely event of a Shootbolt lock failing, you will be covered by the Yale Security Guarantee and will receive £1,000 towards your home content insurance.

2. Are they stylish?

With a multitude of different uPVC window styles, from Sliding Sash to Tilt and Turn you are bound to find a shade that compliments your home.

Additionally, we have multiple colour options from Dark Red to Anthracite Grey as well as handle and glazing options. So we have got you covered.

3. Are they Energy Efficient?

Due to revolutionary multi-chambered Liniar profile technology, our windows and doors are capable of achieving the highest standards in energy efficiency.

The tight weather seals of our windows prevent cold wind and rain from entering your property whilst the glass of the windows has a transparent metallic coating that reflects heat back inside, retaining warmth and reducing the amount of energy needed to heat your home. Ultimately, this is good for the environment and your wallet!

4. Are they environmentally friendly?

Our uPVC windows hold fantastic energy saving values, without the use of harmful materials such as lead and steel.The environmental dangers of lead are well known and we are proud to provide a 100% lead-free range of products, which substantially minimises environmental impact. This makes our uPVC frames kinder to the environment, as well as being 100% recyclable.

5. Is your Installer Trustworthy?

All of our Double Glazing Network members are local double glazing companies who have been fully vetted, monitored and approved by TruFrame, a leading window supplier of Liniar, meaning that you can have absolute confidence in your installer.

Our approved installers obtain reviews from customers, meaning that you can read honest, unbiased reviews before making your decision. This transparency will aid you in finding a professional, trustworthy installer who will provide you and your family with peace of mind.
