    Hi

    I'm currently looking at getting new doors and windows!

    One company, 1st Scenic have quoted me £4,9k for triple glazed rehau unit with uv rating of 0.8, French doors, rear door and composite door

    Britelite have offered me £5k for I believe duraflex frame and 1.3 uv rating again with the doors etc

    Has anyone had any dealings with these products or recommend which deal is best? Also any dealings with these companies would be good to hear on experiences?

    Many thanks

    Rehau all day long for me now, used to use Duraflex back in the late 90's though, never had any issues. I wouldn't be happy with just a 1 year guarantee on all moving parts, and whats with the "if you can't see a defect in the glass from 3m, its deemed acceptable?. Check out the hardware on the windows, companies may use the same profile Rehau, Veka, Kommerling, Eurocell etc, but they may all use different suppliers for handles, hinges etc.
    No point having decent profile with Micky Mouse handles/hinges. I don't get why companies use suppliers with only a year guarantee??!!

    I take it both prices are for 44mm triple glazing??

    No I think the rehau is 44mm but the other one on duraflex is smaller!

    Thank you for reply. I will ask the supplier re handles etc

    Britelite do use duraflex, we used to use duraflex but moved to Kommerling. Never used rehau. Check that heavy duty hinges will be used or you may have issues.
