Hi,

It's great to see that you are pleased with the sales side of our company; however, it is with disappointment that you see fit to write such a negative review regarding the installation with Walkers Windows.

In reference to the fitting running over schedule, I would argue that all the work was completed within the specified time slot, however, due to how your old windows were installed, on brackets it created a problem when removing your bathroom window. The workmanship is to a good standard and has been checked by more than one member of our management team. The issue you have is with the damage to the tile, which Walkers Windows has attempted to rectify by trying to source a replacement for you - despite clause 7 stating that the company cannot accept liability for this. After extensive research, it came to light that the tile was over 25 years old and was no longer available to purchase. You will not accept anything else.

It comes as a surprise too that you would review a product that you do not own as you have not paid for your installation yet. Your argument that it is incomplete is invalid as you will not allow us back on site to merely finish the trims on the windows until we agree to cover the cost of re-tiling your entire bathroom (approx £1,000!)

One of our Directors has made several attempts to come to an amicable agreement with you but, living in the compensation culture that we live in; we now feel we are in an impossible situation as you refuse to negotiate.

If you have taken time to read this reply to this review, a member of Walker's staff would love to speak with you in order to allay any concerns you may have. As a company that has been in business for over 30 years, it is unfortunate that we have particular customers that would rather write a review on here rather than speak directly with us as we are more than happy to try and resolve any complaint or query

OH dear, seems quite a lot of customers are dissatisfied with the quality of work you carry out, and some without a response from you ! a rebuild at their cost?

You gave a schedule of 1.5 days to complete, you took 3 days and did not finish, you argued the work was completed within the allotted time scale , however you contradict this when you state we would not allow you access to complete the job, so which statement do you stand by? Is it because you sent an inadequate sized fitting team?

The two inspections of your workmanship was carried out before completion, how can this be a true inspection? and one of them slightly biased as problems outlined were discarded immediately.

We don't just have an issue with a tile we have several issues that include broken tiles, however as usual you seem to choose to ignore these issues and would rather bully for payment than rectify works in order to achieve payment. We would like to reiterate what issues you are already aware of, refer back to previous e-mails as we can ! Removing items from our property without consent, When politely asking for said items back on several occasions, you played ignorant and offered no real answers is this legally correct? a 32 inch crack to main wall in master bedroom this is one of many, shot plaster to the third bedroom, cracks or chips to all window sills, previous work carried out to this property: back door needs re - alignment inner frame snapped, French doors to where day light can be seen not weather proof by any means, all these issues were pointed out whilst the director was carrying out his inspection, his response was a shrug of his shoulders yet in clause 7: all work other than tile and wall fittings will be rectified by Walkers windows, you clearly breach your own contract details but are quick to quote them when the situation benefits yourselves.

You blame the damage of our property to the brackets on the old windows, yet Walkers Windows had full knowledge of the brackets because of prior work carried out on our property, but you failed to inform us or the contractors to this potential problem. Very amateurish in my humble opinion !

Could you please list the offers made by your director so we can assess them, as so far we have not received any formal offers, just demands of full payment for work not yet finished or rectified. Which then led to aggressive correspondence and threats of legal proceedings.

I am however prepared to pay in full if you provide an independent window surveyor (by agreement) to come and inspect your workmanship and him to be 100% satisfied with the work you have carried out and no further work is necessary other than your 25mm inner trim.

Or you agree to use our home in your sales brochure, showing all internal photographs to show off your quality workmanship and how your home will look after Walkers windows have installed their goods.

“Dreadful company - Beware”

Written on: 17/04/2015 by 189Dickson (1 review written)

We are disgusted with the service received throughout from Walkers Windows when building our extension. Time scales were not adhered to, work was shoddy, far too many mistakes were made. Workers were pulled off tasks before completing them leaving them rushed and doing a poor job. Project management was non existent hence we never knew what was happening when. Walkers sought money when they were due non and the job nowhere near complete. We were told the job would be 3 weeks. It's now over a… Read Full Review

Hi,

We are sorry to hear that you feel this way about your installation by Walkers Windows last year. Due to a very successful advertising campaign and a high volume of referrals from satisfied existing customers, the installation department was working to their absolute limits in order to achieve the desired timescales of our customers, sometimes under circumstances that are unfortunately beyond our control.

This is by no means an excuse and in our endeavours to improve our service we are keen to learn from any mistakes made, if you wish to highlight them please feel free to contact our Sales Manager Charles Whitehead to discuss further.

We would like to express that there have been a lot of changes here at Walker Windows Ltd over the last 12 months in order to satisfy customer’s requirements and expectations. We have now appointed two installation managers with over 30 years industry experience who will proactively and promptly deal with any issues that may arise.

Thank you for your feedback

Walkers Windows Ltd

“Job well done”

Written on: 14/04/2015 by AngandStu (1 review written)

The lads have just left after doing our roofline (facias, soffits and dry liners)and we are over the moon with the work they have done. They were here for two days and we have no complaints whatsoever. They were polite, hard working and have done an excellent job. All the mess which came down from the roof was swept away before they left. So glad that we chose to ignore all the negative reviews on here. WELL DONE WALKERS WINDOWS! Lets hope that they make as good a job when they come to fit the… Read Full Review

We have now had all our windows and doors replaced by Walkers and apart from the surveyor not picking up on the fact that there were no lintels, nor noticing that there was only one gallows support under our large bay window instead of three, we are very happy with the work that has been done. Marvellous job!!

“best thing ever done”

Written on: 25/03/2015 by davenjayne (1 review written)

We have recently had a conservatory built by Walkers Windows, after signing the contract I started reading reviews left by other customers about this company. Both me and my husband began doubting whether we should have looked at another company having read some negative comments that other customers had written, all I can say is don't believe all you read!! From the minute the salesman arrived to the minute the job was signed off completed we can find no fault with anyone from the bricklayers… Read Full Review

“AVOID THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS .... YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED”

Written on: 13/01/2015

MY ADVICE …. AVOID THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS. Its 12 months since Walkers took a lot of money from my wife and I and in return provided us with nothing but heartache and misery. As result of their failures and pathetically poor building work, we have had to pay another company James Harvey Builders to completely demolish and rebuild our orangery. … Read Full Review

Just had a new conservatory that looks fantastic! After signing our contract with Walkers, we were giving dates of a survey, and from there given a date when the work would start. There was a little mess, which we were expecting due to knocking through into the kitchen, but it was well cleaned up by the fitters that came. Great service from the office staff who kept us well informed of trades that were coming! BIG BIG thanks to [name removed], he really got the job moving and made it all go… Read Full Review

“Very professional. ”

Written on: 05/10/2014 by Janinetaylor (1 review written)

We decided that walkers windows was the best company to use to install our conservatory. Not only were the staff friendly and helpful, the price was reasonable too. When it came to our conservatory being built, the fitter's were fantastic..... Leaving no mess & installing the conservatory to a very high standard. We are so happy with the extra space. I would use walkers windows again... A friendly, professional service & a reasonable price too… Read Full Review

Just had all our windows and doors replaced by Walkers Windows. The service from start to finish was excellent. No pushy salesman, very good price and excellent fitting team. They came to do the job on the day agreed and took great care of minimizing the mess caused. All surfaces were covered, carpets protected and hoovered up after each window completed. The fitters were polite and no trouble at all, the job was down for 3 days but completed in just 2. Everything is good and we are very very… Read Full Review

“Nightmare to deal with”

Written on: 25/09/2014 by dsrogan (1 review written)

After getting a few quotes we decided to go with Walkers Windows, Huddersfield for our conservatory. At the same time they persuaded us to update the adjoining utility room. It was the most expensive quote, but “those nice people from Walkers” said it would be well worth it. We duly paid our deposit on 28th June, with an expected completion date of end of July/early August. They said the surveyor would be in touch to arrange a visit within a couple of days. After four days or so when… Read Full Review

You say you could not fault the workmanship but a base or walls 40 mm out is down to the bricklayers

“Superb job fitting windows!”

Written on: 17/09/2014 by Batcheloruk466 (1 review written)

An excellent job by Walkers fitting our windows. Got expert advice from both salesmen and project manager, nothing was too much trouble for them. The fitters did an excellent job of fitting the windows and clearing and cleaning up afterwards. This work was over a few days and at all times they were courteous and focussed on the job well done. Energy efficiency and the quality of all the materials are superb. We would have no hesitation in recommending Walkers Windows to others… Read Full Review

“Arrogant .....find a better company.”

Written on: 16/09/2014 by Rosielee53 (1 review written)

Salesmen are slick and convincing but nothing else lives up to expectations. The small conservatory we have had built has been ok in the end, but what should have been a quick straight forward job but instead was behind schedule and construction lasted over a month due to many niggles caused by poor workmanship which had to be sorted. Made many errors with everything from the build itself to mistakes relating to billing for the finished job. The attitude of certain managers and most especially… Read Full Review
