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.

I did my research on window companies before getting an appointment with this company. Tony (sales) was not pushy, I told him what I wanted, he listened to me, made a couple of suggestions, which I agreed with. Installers Steve, Lee and Dave came and really took their time or it could have been the old windows were difficult to get out! Anyway the kitchen frame was damaged and this was only noticed once it was installed and the following day the new frame was ready. There was a window unit that had a blemish in it, not a big issue as Aaron came and replaced with no problem a week later. Customer service was next to none, nothing was any hassle. One thing I will say, the installers do like their cups of tea and slice of toast in the morning, so make sure you have plenty of teabags, milk and bread! I also had all 20 windows replaced in the conservatory as most of the seals had gone and poor Steve had the pleasure of doing them all. Would highly recommend academy windows.

This is the third or fourth instalment of successive vital replacements at this address. The preliminary arrangements have been made most effectively beforehand. On each occasion the installation has been carried out to the letter, with faultless performance

Had 2 very large double glazed windows installed yesterday and we are so pleased with them, the windows look lovely and the 2 fitters Dan and Ryan , used plenty of carpet and furniture covers and hoovered up at the end and to be honest it is almost impossible to see that 2 new windows have been fitted , no damage around the window , not a mark anywhere, incredible . We are very happy with both the price for the work and the quality . Definitely recommend this company.
