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.

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.

Good price, very good product. Installer turned up on time. Appalling weather (heavy rain). A most pleasant, diligent chap. Door well installed. Trim and finish very good. He left everything clean and tidy. Would very much have Academy again and more to the point I feel safe in recommending this companies service.

Professional work, prompt delivery and installation throughout. All tradesmen cleared up each night. Did have a couple of unforeseen hiccups, but these were quickly resolved after a discussion to our satisfaction. No hesitation in recommending Academy Windows for conservatory and/or replacement upvc windows.

Product very good. Fitting took place on day scheduled and finished in good time. Fitter identified a problem with the base that the door frame would rest on but solved it by filling it with sand and cement. Very pleased with the door and the quality of the fitting.
