“Pricey, but great service and stunning Windows ”

Written on: 27/09/2016 by ReeseJarvis (1 review written)

Penicuik had contacted me in regards to a promotion they had going on in my area and because my Windows are over a certain age I qualified to get a 'heavily reduced' price to upgrade them with new energy efficient ones. The house had been feeling a bit colder recently so I agreed to a quote. A lady arrived that evening and started on her quote, I told her I was wary of sales tactics etc but told her to crack on. After about an hour or so we finally got to the price- 19,000 for 8windows a door… Read Full Review

“Replacement windows for whole house”

Written on: 21/09/2016 by DavidBY (1 review written)

Was a bit alarmed by some of the bad reviews posted - after we had signed up for replacement windows! Our previous windows were 26 years old, wooden framed and with some panel seals broken. So thought time we looked at new windows. Had been aware of Penicuik for many years and seemed a reputable Scottish based company. Salesperson was very pleasant and informative, professional approach, not pushy and offered a reasonable price to replace all the windows (12 in total). Date arranged. The two… Read Full Review

“Worst service ever”

Written on: 06/09/2016 by Lindseyby1961 (1 review written)

Salesman came to price for roofline and gutters gave me a price. So I paid my deposit and survey costs. It then turns out the sales man had under priced my job and they wanted £4000 extra. After many calls and emails I am still no further forward. NEVER NEVER USE THIS COMPANY… Read Full Review

He bacame very agressive and said i had wasted his time. I felt very intimmidated as i was a womon on my own. Horrible experience… Read Full Review

“St Helen;'s Glass good”

Written on: 18/08/2016 by wirralians (2 reviews written)

We only found these disturbing reviews because we paid £99 surveyor fees to Penicuik Home Improvements when our windows were installed by St Helen's Glass, so we looked them up on the web. PHI owns the St Helen's Glass name. Installation was by "Job Worth Doing". All companies are part of entu. We had the "scrappage" bull and the massive price reductions from the salesman, but the eventual price was competitive with quotes from last year. The surveyor was excellent, pointing out many… Read Full Review

“Stay well clear!!!!!!!!!”

Written on: 16/08/2016 by August16 (1 review written)

Penicuik sales man talked my parents who are both in their 80's into buying new windows throughout the house (7 in total), a new back door and glased side panels and new patio windows. They were assured that no redecoration would be necessary after the fitting of the windows etc and mess would be minimum. Installers arrived on 27 July 16, asked who had done the measure as the windows well all too large. The re-measured and said new windows would be made. Leaving my parents living with the… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/08/2016 by Baguiodeener (1 review written)

Ok, so I get a call from a lovely Lady explaining that I have been awarded upto £2,000 scrap scheme funding for new windows (sound familiar??) So I agreed to a 'quote' being left. That same night I get 2 salespeople at my home offering me a quote at a ridiculous price, which they could reduce significantly if I agreed to it right now- usual sales pitch.. The 'new' price seemed fine, though when I asked about my scrappage discount- they had never heard of it!! Still, pleased enough with the… Read Full Review

“Quality terrible, aftercare terrible, sales calls terrible”

Written on: 09/08/2016 by archierob (1 review written)

Headlines: -Fitting OK -Wrong door handles supplied and took nearly five weeks after installation to get fixed -Wrong window vents supplied and after 5 weeks still not corrected -Window and door locks very cheap and fiddly, and at least two (of six) will need to be replaced -Customer Service needs constant prodding to get anything done and any rectification takes ages - Have now complained to Penicuik's parent company ENTU, because all of these problems stem ultimately from the policies… Read Full Review

“Absolutely awful company!”

Written on: 29/07/2016 by ncButcher26 (1 review written)

Awful hard sell-guy phoned his boss who basically told him to stay there until we signed something-he was still in the house at 1am.eventually we signed to get rid of him and cancelled the next day. How on earth do companies think this is the way to go about getting sales?… Read Full Review

“Very Expensive Back Door ”

Written on: 18/07/2016 by imRoy272 (1 review written)

I eventually bought a door thinking they were going to make my door sizes! Tosh! They put a normal sized door in. The door sticks all the time and when I told them I have not heard a word from them! It also swings shut as you go through just about pushing you out. It sort of hangs in the air...swaying about! BUT THE WORST THING IS THE PHONE CALLS AFTERWARDS... I have had a timeshare holiday company on my back, window blinds, and all the calls probably that I dont answer. Stay well clear of… Read Full Review

“Rude, Aggressive and terrible customer Service”

Written on: 15/07/2016 by Marijke2026 (2 reviews written)

First the salesman who visited me was rude, unpleasant and treated me like some kind of idiot if I didn't accept his offer. I got bullied into signing a contract including decorative glass panels. we both signed the contract and he seemed annoyed and left without shaking hands; just a very unpleasant experience. Anyway, the surveyor came and showed me an overview of the glass panels. I made a choice, which a few days later I tried to change. They then told me it would be an additional £700! I… Read Full Review

“Poor ”

Written on: 01/07/2016 by nmBailey158 (1 review written)

To begin with I was impressed with the sales pitch and quality demonstrated, but after spending nearly 3 hours in the evening after a long day at work I was just too much, especially when you have kids to put to bed etc, the quote for 9 windows started at over £18.000 but surprisingly enough that all changed after a phonecall to his boss that went down to £6.000!!!! alarm bells went off im sorry so if id been stupid enough to go with the sale I could have been been overcharged by £12.000!!!… Read Full Review

“Had to call the police”

Written on: 24/06/2016 by lqPreston1967 (1 review written)

Their salesman would not leave the house. I literally had to call 999 to get him to pack up, over 2 hours after he arrived. When I asked him to leave he just asked the next question in his sales spiel and said "but why won't you answer?" when I asked him to leave again. I'm absolutely flabbergasted… Read Full Review

“Avoid at all costs!”

Written on: 21/06/2016 by Unhappyfortwilliam (1 review written)

I made the mistake of being talked into buying windows from this company through a Home Energy Scotland incentive offering a financial rebate for energy saving windows. The fitters arrived and removed four of my six Everest windows (26 years old but still in good condition)before they realized that none of the six new Penicuik windows were the right size(all were too small).The fitters left the new windows in place and made my house "wind and watertight" using expanding foam. They contacted the… Read Full Review

“BEWARE”

Written on: 14/06/2016

BEWARE of Penicuik Double Glazing. The salesman badgered my 79 year old father in to signing up for new windows there and then at a cost of just over £1000 per window. I cancelled the contract on the same day but my fathers most recent bank statement shows that Penicuk have taken £99 out of his account as an admin fee. I would also advise anyone thinking of using them as they have loads of 5 star reviews here but BEWARE as they have no shame in badgering an old man I would say they have no… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/08/2016

They did the same with me, single mum, working full time- they turned up at my house at 8pm!! I signed as I thought I was getting a good deal. Then cancelled after a day, as I found a local company that were £500 cheaper! They still took the £99 "admin" fee. I have actually contacted the ombudsman service to try and get my money back! You and your Father should do the same- they are a disgusting company.
