I have been looking for new windows for a while now and I wanted to buy locally. Realistic came up when I was researching window companies near me. There website was easy to use, and I liked what I saw. The whole process was easy, they worked around me as I was going away for several weeks. I was kept informed and Realistic managed to fit my windows before I went away. The product is well made and was fitted by a very polite team of two young men. I have been asked, where did you get your windows, as they so nice. I have told all my friends about Realistic. A fantastic company .
I have driven pass the Realistic showroom many times and just loved the green conservatory. So, I went on the website to see what was on offer as I have always said I will have a chartwell green stable door sometime and now I have one. The stable door is fantastic, it is well made, solid and easy to use. The office staff very helpful indeed, the whole process was seamless, we have no problem whatsoever. The fitters came made a lovely job. French doors next, I think.
I have used realistic before in my old house. I like the products they use and being local is a bonus as I was able to pop up to the showroom, speak to the staff and take samples away with me. I was kept updated through out my project. The door was fitted by two very nice fitters and explained everything they were doing and why. The door looks great, very in keeping with the property and people walking past have commented on how nice it looks. I have recommended Realistic to friends and will be using them in the future.
I have had a large window fitted by Realistic. Every part of the process was professional and very good. The installation required a team of 4 due to the size of the glass. Every member of the team were polite, and respected my home. The quality of the work was very very good. Would i recommend them, without a shadow of doubt. Thank you Realistic.
I choose Realistic because of the straight talking from the rep. He gave me a good price right from the outset. The installers where great, very polite, tidy and did a lovely job. I have already recommended someone ans received £25.00 for doing so which was lovely. I only have my door to re new now and i will b using Realistic when the time comes.
We choose Realistic after using a trade recommend website. The salesman was very polite and patience. The french doors are lovely, well made, and look super. The after care service has been brilliant , nothing is to much trouble. I would recommend Realistic every time.
We moved into a smaller bungalow and had what we thought was a lovely little conservatory out the back but it leaked, I had to get it changed. I checked with all traders and after reading many reviews decided to go with Realistic. The salesman came gave me all my options, showed us pictures of what it would look like. I wanted it put up asap due to the one I had leaking so much. The installers came two lovely young men and soon it was all up and we could move all out stuff out there from the house. It is a god send, I couldn't do without it and they brought me flowers on my birthday.
My old front door was draughty, and I needed a new one. I drove passed Realistic at the garden centre and looked at pics on the website and decided to buy from them after seeing the salesman. My door is fantastic. I love the colour and it is solid. I choose long handles inside and out which makes it so easy to open and close.
We had all our windows in the rear of the property changed and they had to match all the other windows in the complex. They did an outstanding job. We had a slight hic-up with some measurements but it all worked out in the end. We will be having all the windows in the front of the property changed soon by Realistic
Our front door was draughty and slightly bowed. We were not sure what type of door to buy, the salesman was very knowledgeable and we were able to choose what ever we wanted and we are very pleased with the result. The guy that installed the door was very careful and made a lovely job of it, nothing was too much trouble. We would choose Realistic again. Great Job.
I am very very pleased with the service, quality and customer care i have received from Realistic. Their product is of very good quality and fitted to perfection. The installers were a great pair of guys always very polite and always tidied up after themselves. I will and have already recommended Realistic to family.
We were recommended realistic by my brother and the windows and doors are of good quality . The installers had a few little mishaps but these were put right. However on a couple of occasions no body got back to us reference questions we had asked and some small remedial jobs need doing. Hence 4 stars
I had a very large tilt and turn window in my bedroom which was to heavy for me to open, so Ryan suggested I have a smaller window with a large fixed pane so i still get all the light and i can manage the window. The men who came to fit it where lovely couldn't do enough for me. The whole company was very helpful. I would recommend them to anyone.
Our new room is outstanding, we love it. We are so pleased. The lads were very clean and tidy and was all completed on time.
very good value for money, sales man a perfect gentleman. These are new build houses and i wanted the windows and door to be of top quality which they are. I will be using realistic for my up and coming projects and also my own home.
We were recommended to use Realistic by a friend. We had a lovely new roof completed by them and we use it all the time. It is light and airy and a great asset to the house. My only problem was that when the guys finished they did not clean the glass properly . They left marks on the roof glass.
I needed three windows for my rental property and choose Realistic due to my son using them before and being very happy with the service. The service was very good and I am pleased with the finish. My only concern which is a small one hence 4 stars is that they left a small mark on the bedroom window.
Needed some new windows and Realistic were good on price and the salesman was not pushy. They came fitted them, did a great job, cleaned up after themselves . I would recommend them. Other family members have already used them.
I wanted patio doors out into my garden so i had Realistic make a window bigger by cutting the blocks below the window out to make a bigger opening. Now i can sit and look into the garden with the doors open or shut. I choose Realistic because they were local and i have seen them at the garden centre i use. The lads that came to install the doors were very goods and took great care when putting it in. They finished it off with edging all the way round and it looks super.
I had a poly roof and it was getting old so shopped around and found Realistic, a lovely local firm. The men that came to fit it were very tidy and did a lovely job. The room now is lovely to sit in and a great asset to my house. I would recommend realistic every time.
It took us a long time to find this type of bi fold door and we had been let down by other companies. Realistic offered a good price. The men that came to fit the door were very polite, clean and tidy but had to put the door together from a kit and i don't think they had done very many. There were magnets missing and the gasket was the wrong colour hence 4 stars, but these were put right by Realistic. We are very pleased with the doors and would recommend Realistic to anyone.
We have the most beautiful conservatory/Livin room. we sit in there all the time and watch the birds, it is delightful. The salesman was pleasant and no hard sell, we looked at what was on offer at one of there showrooms. The men that came to install the conservatory where very professional and cleared up every night before they left. I would recommend Realistic.Great Job.
Glazed extension with Ultraframe LivinROOF
Project did take longer than we were expecting in the main due to a major issue with the plastering, these delays could have been avoided with better communications with Realistic. Having said that they rectified the issues, with a special thank you to Paul Little Construction.
Now the project is complete it has exceeded our expectations and we are delighted with the final finish. The new room works perfect as our home office. Thank you to Paul, Scott, Chris & Mike in the office.
In short Realistic gave us the room they promised, even if it was slightly painful getting there.

The was a little confusion over a small window but that was quickly sorted out.

We have already referred Realistic to friends of ours.
We like the extra space, its warm and light, enabling us to use the room even now winter has come, plus we don't have to put the lights on during the day to use it.
The standard of work is very good with pleasant and helpful workers, we are happy to recommend but would like to point out that this is not a quick job.

We initially viewed their website, then visited their showroom, it was great having the ability to speak direct with a designer on site. Our installers were very polite, always on time and worked really hard despite some awful weather. The products are very good and we are delight with the final look, we envisage using the room far more throughout the year, it already feels so much warmer.
The only small issue was the manufacturing process took longer than expected and this could have been communicated to us better.

The locking mechanism can be a bit cumbersome but I appropriate that this is manly do door security.
I have to say that I am very happy with Realistic as our installers.
Flint 1 composite door.
As before workmanship and quality are second to none. We are more than happy to recommend Realistic and will continue to do so.
My conservatory build was so problematic that I had to cut ties with the company and pay 2 others £1,488 and £65 respectively to carry out remedial work . Problems included not building what I had signed up to, wrong colour glass installed, floor covering not level, door hinges had to be replaced, poor finishing on plastering, roof panel installed upside down, weeks exposed to the elements as there was no front on the room, different colour cream trims inside and out, sound of gushing water whenever it rained, water coming in in several places etc. Took weeks to resolve some problems, failed to resolve some satisfactorily, gave many broken promises about dates when work would be carried out, considered serious problems as "snags". A very stressful experience.
We take full responsibility for our builds and welcome feedback, which enables us to move forward in a proactive way.
The design was agreed prior to any works commencing, the problems relating to the glass, hinges, plastering and floor level were all completed as part of the ongoing build process.
A roof pane of glass was labelled upside down and subsequently installed incorrectly, when it rained it became apparent that the glass was not dispensing water the same as the other panes, we therefore reversed the pane which corrected the error.
Mrs Tamblyn’s photograph of the plastering shows that the plastering does not go to an acceptable floor finish for the exclusion of skirting board. This was our mistake, we assumed Mrs Tamblyn would at some point have skirting board installed into the room. The plasterer was sent back to rectify his work, which can be seen clearly in Mrs Tamblyn’s 1st photograph taken whilst the plastering was drying out. - Our plasterer now asks the question on future skirting board requirement.
Products are ordered from survey after the ground base works are complete, this ensures that the products fit correctly, it limits risk or problems, but it does delay installation time, which is exasperated when ordering coloured products, especially coloured aluminium frames, both of which were part of Mrs Tamblyn’s contract. PVCu coloured profile and aluminium profile are impossible to match exactly as they are both different materials.
We were not able to meet Mrs Tamblyn’s expectations for her installation, we therefore felt it fair to offer her the option of:
1, Allow us to put down the latex self-levelling compound, which would take out the defects she had pointed out in the floor. This would then leave the outstanding balance to be settled and her guarantees sent in the post.
2, Not pay her sizeable outstanding balance and waiver her 10-year guarantee.
Finally, we do not consider the building process to be a problem, we do have snags, which we overcome.
We try to work together with our clients and hope that the majority will have a good experience when dealing with us, sadly though, we are not always successful.

Superb job by Mark and Matt. Would recommend realistic to anyone. Excellent job well done.
The service was of exceptional value and was carried out in a friendly manner.
Really pleased with the whole service from ordering through installation. When choosing the door the salesperson was very knowledgeable and able to answer all my queries so that i was confident in my choices and the product i'd be receiving. The fitters arrived on the dot this morning and before anything was done a dust sheet was put down to protect the carpet. Both fitters were very professional and clearly take great pride in the quality of their work. I'm really pleased with the standard of the finished work and would defiantly recommend them. Just one final thing id like to say - in the past other tradespeople have taken advantage of the fact that i'm a lone female in respect of pricing or substandard work which is naturally incredible frustrating. That was NOT the case with realistic! I would defiantly recommend Realistic anyone who is either in the same situation or who is nervous, their standard work is excellent and price you're quoted is what you pay. You're fully informed throughout and don't need to worry as your in safe hands!

We have been completely delighted with the whole process, the workmanship is excellent, friendly knowledgeable staff. well done realistic
The work was completed to an extremely high standard. From the very start we were extremely impressed with realistic. Unfortunately due to an issue that was outside our control, we had a problem with our front door. in my experience its how companies go about resolving the problems the defines them and their customer service is - no one says anything when things are going well. Luckily for us realistic have been amazing and have made sure they weren't happy until we were. i would recommend this company to everyone and if looking to have work done they should be your only choice.
Very good service, very happy with the result, looks like a new bungalow and time keeping marked lower only because the engineer had a accident and could not turn up, worked extremely hard on arrival to completion!
Ryan and his team were professional, courteous and obviously very good at their job. A happy customer!

Ultraframe Loggia with LivinROOF
If I could give no stars I would! A Shocking service! Bad attitude happy to make the sale and quick enough to take your money but unhelpful when things go wrong. We've had a leak for over 18 months and now we find out our conservatory has been built on the wrong foundations so is slowly sinking and Realistic have said its not their problem! Keep clear of this company!
Very insulated, good quality, amazing conservatory fitters that install the conservatory, through a local company, can't ask for better customer service from fitters of windows and doors and whole conservatory installation. Great sales team, very solid, real company with a great product.
Realistic replaced two of my windows. I was very impressed with both the quality of the product and the workmanship. And at a competitive price.
Certainly would recommend this company and would use them again.
Absolutely delighted with our new door. Mark the installer has done a first class job. Very neat and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend this company.

Very pleased with the work. Mark and Matt were very efficient and very reliable.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your company for excellent installation of replacement windows and doors which you carried out at our property” “The quality of the double glazed units used was extremely good and this coupled with the first class workmanship of your fitters resulted in a very high quality finish to the whole project. The office staff did a brilliant job of communicating to ensure that we were always fully in the picture as to what was going to be carried out and when and this really made the whole project a complete joy. This was also helped, of course, by the fact that your pricing was certainly realistic and we would have no hesitation in recommending you and your team to anyone who was considering having this and similar work carried out.
We are writing to say how very pleased we are with our new conservatory. Many thanks to Mark and his colleagues for all of their hard work, a splendid job all round
