About

Academy Windows: domestic installation of quality uPVC and aluminium windows, doors and conservatories. With 30 years industry experience we have earned the trust of many thousands of customers. We are a FENSA registered business, the industry gold standard for replacement windows and doors. Choose Academy Windows and you are choosing quality products and service during and beyond your installation. We are happy to honour our guarantee because we believe in the quality of our products and service.

Our manufacturing arm, Windows Direct, make all our own windows, doors and conservatories in our factory in Brightlingsea. We use, as far as possible, British made components (i.e. hinges, locks and handles) which are more expensive but far superior to the mass produced products from the Far East. This ethos has gained us recognition as one of the leading manufacturers of uPVC products in the United Kingdom.

Great job on a replacement kitchen window

We had a replacement window fitted in our kitchen yesterday by this company and we were super impressed with their professionalism from start to finish. Great communications with the assessor, surveyor and finally with the fitter. The finish in particular was fantastic and there was a bit of remedial work also done to the plaster where the original window came out. Now thinking about our other windows...

After 3 years searching for the right product and company we decided to use the Academy to replace our conservatory roof and chose the individual "tiled" cladding. Right from our first visit to the Brightlingsea depot, it was clear this is a friendly and professional operation, offering quality products. Following the initial home visit to outline our requirements a detailed survey quickly followed. All materials and options were clearly explained and despite the COVID restrictions coming into force and delaying supply of parts, we were kept informed and as soon as allowable a start date was agreed. Their construction duo (not subies! ) worked from before 8.00 am to 4.30 even in the 30C+ temps; they were always tidy, polite and professional, clearing up and hoovering every day. The job exceeded our expectations and has given us back our "extra room" in the heat and we expect to benefit in the winter from the 8" of roof insulation now in place. Additionally, we ordered a new front door, which again was excellent and has lightened our hall and appears to have increased the width, since the framework and attached edging in white (not brown) creates a visual illusion of space. We are more than satisfied with this company and would recommend them to anyone; we would have no objection if they wanted to send anyone round to see their work.

Work due to Covid 19 has been carried out over the last 5 months. From the initial enquiry to completion of the work, everything has been completed within agreed timescales, on budget and to our entire satisfaction. Everyone at Academy Windows has acted in a friendly and professional manner and the standard of work undertaken by the various teams has been excellent. I also feel comfortable in that it has been made clear that in the unlikely event that any problems should arise, the company can be contacted and will look to put things right as soon as possible. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this company for anybody considering installing a conservatory, Windows or doors. First class from start to finish. Thank you A.W.

Excellent service, from quotation to installation. Their sales team are very friendly and professional, at no point was I under pressure to purchase or rushed into making a decision - actually quite the opposite. I was offered many options and the pricing differentials to decide. Once I decided on specifications, I paid my deposit and manufacturing and installation was fast and efficient despite the COVID lockdown I suffered no delays. Their installation team on site were polite and the job finished in record time, taking with them all the waste materials and leaving behind my new windows. My order was for two large bay windows, three-bathroom windows, one kitchen window and three-bedroom windows. Their prices were very competitive without compromise of product or service includes a Ten Year Guarantee !! I would strongly recommend Academy Windows.

The products supplied are excellent. Liam and Joe the installers were very helpful, liaised with me at each stage of the work schedule. Their hard work was very much appreciated and they left the site clean and tidy. Budget and schedule agreed and completed on time. Academy Windows have kept me informed at all times, especially when one of the panes was cracked and will be replaced asap. It has given the bungalow a smart and up to date look. Great service and value for money, highly recommended.

Replacement of 10 double glazed window units plus 3 replacement windowsills and lock on one original window . This was carried out to the agreed schedule and budget. All parts of the process were done in a professional and polite manner and no pressure was applied to proceed with the installation. The installers were experienced and courteous at all times. They all knew their trade and communications were faultless. One key was missing and this was replaced without fail .

I recently had my windows and front door replaced, porch panels replaced and a wall built underneath my living room window. With Academy Windows everything was done under one roof so I didn’t have to look separately for a builder and plasterer. It’s was all done as part of their service. Academy Windows are very reasonably priced, of high quality, provide fantastic customer service, clean and tidy and very accommodating when I had minor adjusters I wanted to make. They provided a first class service. I highly recommend Academy Windows. It was a joy having the fitters and builders working on my house whilst I worked from home. Really friendly guys. Thank you to all the team involved especially Duncan and Aran.
