Replacement conservatory

We asked for a quote to remove our old, leaking conservatory and replace it with one of the models they have on Realistic's website. Ryan visited to discuss what we wanted and what options were available, which was clear and detailed. He left having left us a price quote for a couple of options that we had discussed. Once we agreed to go ahead the detailed pricing and preparation documents arrived. There was initially no start date because other planned work would not allow them to give an exact date. An agreeable start date was later fixed, having taken into account our availability as we had to allow access to isolate the electrics. Once work began, we negotiated if and when we could allow access. The old conservatory was removed and the delivery of the new one was delivered on what was a very wet and windy two days, which we were impressed by. The rest of the work was done to a high standard and with good attention to detail. We are happy with the quality of the new conservatory but is described by the company as an Orangery, as it has four corner pillars, an internal pelmet with 6 spotlights, 2 corner tower radiators and a 'lantern' skylight with special blue tinted glass to help reduce UV rays and the room overheating. All these make the room feel so much more a part of the house and making the room more usable. The price was higher than a 'normal' conservatory but, for the way it has changed how the room can be used, we feel is good value for money.

Following a meeting with Ryan, and also obtaining other cheaper quotes, my wife and I chose Realistic Home Improvements to replace our old windows and doors. Our decision was based on the helpful, informative nature of Ryan’s approach and subsequent responses to our many questions. At all times he responded promptly providing the answers we needed to make a considered decision. Once we agreed the style/finish/design of our windows and doors, the confirmation and measuring happened immediately. A date was agreed for installation and right on the date agreed, the fitters Paul and Kayden arrived to carry out the work. They were both very professional, took care when removing the old windows and installing the new. Paul’s attention to detail is commendable, and nothing was too much trouble for him. He was capably assisted by Kayden and they did a fantastic job. We are extremely pleased with the quality of the products and the high quality of the installation. We have received many complimentary comments from neighbours and passers by about the windows and doors and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Realistic Home Improvements.

Had a bit of a mess of a roof that a different trader did for me. This one came out quick, assessed the issue, they were very professional and trustworthy. Always on time, kept me informed throughout and left everything tidy. They did a good job.

Used them a couple of years ago for a back door. Now I wanted a new front door matching the back door. They listened to me and advised me on my options. They might not be the cheapest but the quality of what they do and their communication is fab. Throughout the whole process they were informative. I recommended them to others as well. Very good value for money.

I really liked the work they done for my neighbour, and wanted to have the same. They fitted a glass-roof to my conservatory. Their workmanship was excellent. However they didn't clean the glass afterwards and wasn't very happy with that, even though is should be self cleaning.

I did see a sign along the road, looked their business up online and invited them for a quote. They had the best quote, price was good and competitive and the windows were up to spec that I needed. They turned up on time, which was very important to me as we were a bit under time constraint. But everything was done to very good standards. Came back to resettle door in a later stage as well. Will be using them again.
