    Hi
    I am having a single storey side extension built and my builder was going to buy the windows from wickes but I had a couple of window companies come and quote. They both said wickes windows were externally beaded and not secure.

    Anyway we are having a roof light installed and the builder is getting this from wickes too, he said the roof lights they sell are good quality and secure, is this true or should i request real velux ones?

    I only ever fit Velux and rarely shop at wickes so can't comment.

    I have to say though the Velux winows are a doddle to fit.

    the roof windows at wickes if i remember correctly are the ones with integrated flashing and they are babba. if you want a roof window velux should always be your choice they are reasonably priced and easy to fit, they are better than any thing else on the market.
    as for your windows, go to a local manufacturer they will be cheaper and better + you can specify any additional security features you want, wickes is ok for plaster etc and the special offers nothing else
