Very good quality product and workmanship. Were pleased to the point of having a second one done by Craig, local fitter North Devon. He sells, surveys and fits himself and provides personalised service.
We run a busy redevelopment of a traditional Pub and modern restaurant, keeping historic and original features with additional modern facilities and tweaks relating my family's love of dragons. - The George & Dragon in Dartmouth Devon.
We wanted to make our Boatroom Restaurant more comfortable and attractive to diners. It is a fabulous room with local artist's works relating to the River Dart and historic Dart Harbour, just 200m away, however the new and very attractive central Lanternlight windows, also allowed considerable heat build-up in Summer, and despite being double glazed to the latest standards, also allowed significant heat loss in winter - because of its size, all of which we wanted to prevent. We contacted several companies locally and nationally but received little interest because of its large size at more than 3m long and nearly 2m wide, or our location in Devon, or something, it seemed no one had what we wanted or was interested!
My wife then saw an advert for Conservatory Blinds in one of her magazines and so once again half-heartedly I went on line and called them, "no problem" they said! "Our man in the area will contact you" - so having heard this before but had no response, I was pleasantly surprised when Craig called us the next day and arranged to come and take a look, take measurements and give us a price the next week. Craig duly came was immediately able to identify exactly what we needed, in a material that met my wife's aesthetic demands (she who must be obeyed!) and also met my shade and heat / insulation requirements, plus ease of operation and minimal maintenance - Perfect in fact!
So we placed an order and grace a deposit to Craig, then yesterday, just 3 weeks later, Craig returned and fitted the blind - just in time to keep the afternoon sunshine at bay and make the restaurant very comfortable in the evening, this has also immediately significantly reduced the running of our air conditioning unit and I am sure it will do likewise for our heating in the winter.
I must say that we are impressed with the speed and efficiency of service, the knowledge and cutesy of the estimator/fitter and the product. Thank you.
We are very pleased with our pleated blinds fitted in conservatory windows and roof in North Devon by Craig.
In particular the following:
1. Craig sells, surveys and fits the product so one point of contact.
2. Quotes from two other companies, one local and one national, stated they could not fit to our wide (1.5m) sliding doors. Craig had no problem with this and the solution to this matter looks and works very well.
3. Overall customer service and communication was without fault. Quality of the product seems lovely and large variety designs allowed us to pick exactly what we wanted. Big thank you to Craig and I look forward to using you again in the near future.
Sshhh... going to let you in on a little known deepest darkest Devon secret: need security, peace of mind, privacy & beautifully dressed windows/doors? Then look no further in this county than a knowledgable, personable and talented South African installer called Craig representing this brilliant family run company.
Following a traumatic burglary at the beginning of the year Craig responded in a timely manner to an enquiry for help and guidance in respect of 7 bifold doors. He arranged to visit us and immediatly instilled friendly professionalism with no hard sell providing a cost effective solution to the request. This not only reassured us in respect of privacy and security but now we have a stunning high quality addition to our décor and at last my doors dressed as I have always dreamt helping me fall in love with my beautiful home all over again.
Thank you Craig and THANK YOU Conservatory Blinds Limited.
