“Excellent 10 window installation”

Written on: 17/11/2014 by bluemoonjazz (1 review written)

Installation completed today replacing 10 25 year old wooden windows that were variously drafty, not opening, and in poor condition. The half dozen fitters completed the job in under 6 hours, were as polite and efficient as hoped and appear to have done a great job. Pleased with selection of frosted glass for bathroom etc. windows, and with wood colour exterior / white interior colouring. Surprising how much extra light this gives the rooms. I know a couple of other local houses that… Read Full Review

“Garage Doors/Windows and Porch”

Written on: 11/11/2014 by andrea6352 (1 review written)

We have now had several installations from Zenith. They have completed all the windows in the house including two outside doors and also a porch and now we have had new garage doors. All the installations have been trouble free and have been of good quality. The windows were done over 10 years ago and still look like new. The only downside is that once you have had an installation they will keep calling you and trying to make appointments with you to have other things done until there is… Read Full Review

Once again,cold called on my elderly mother and left, having got her to sign up to a ten year plan for soffits and fascias costing overall £13,450.I managed to cancell within the 7 day cooling off period and got a local company to carry out the work to a fantastic standard for £1260.They even had the nerve to call her afterwards saying that they would reduce their quote by afew hundred quid.In usual fashion they dont want to know when you call or e-mail.DONT dish out your hard earned cash to… Read Full Review

“Beware they have no concience and prey on the vunerable”

Written on: 22/10/2014

Cold callers hounded my elderley mother to buy facias and soffits and when she explained she could not afford for this work to be done they then persuaded her to take out a loan to pay for it. She felt pressured and agreed,.What they did not tell her was that it had a term of 96 months. THis was 4 years ago she is 82 years old and she still has 4 years left to settle the account after paying £5600.00 for a job costing £2300 . They do not respond to calls or letters in our appeal for some… Read Full Review

“Salesmen will not leave without an order”

Written on: 19/10/2014 by DisgustedOfReading (1 review written)

I had had Zenith supply my roofline bargeboards etc and was reasonably happy. So when I was cold called an promised a 2year fixed price I agreed to a visit. When the salesman arrived I explained I would not sign an order that day and was only interested in the 2 year price. I also told him I only had 2 hours for his visit. When he worked out the price and I told him I would not sign he became agressive and his body language said he would not leave without an order. I explained again I would not… Read Full Review

“Zenith's deal isn't green, unless green means "for...”

Written on: 01/09/2014

Zenith's green deal is a slanderous lie. They call their discount (all the glazing mafioso use discounts) a "green deal", but their doorstep sellers (after flashing their bootlegged pamphlet with Govt Logo) will admit that it's really a discount if you press them. Thanks to MumsNet (and your site) I have decided not to be around for their appointment tomorrow, have left a message on their website and a note on their door not to approach me again! I have no time for Zenith now - I'm taking… Read Full Review

“Just rude!”

Written on: 30/08/2014 by eisiam (1 review written)

It was my misfortune to have a Zenith cold caller come to the door. I agreed to a rep coming round as I had 4 windows and 2 doors still to replace and was curious as to the green deal. I was very happy with the windows I had just had replaced by a sole window trader but wanted to take advantage of the 2yr fixed price Zenith offer. An appointment was arranged for when my husband would be home with me (red flag..usually means they want you to sign for the great deal on the day) Two men arrived… Read Full Review

Stonyg's Response to eisiam's Review

Why are there very few 2-star or 3-star reviews? I'm therefore very doubtful about the reliability of the 4-star and 5-star reviews.

“Installation of Zenith Staybrite Double Glazing and Doors”

Written on: 31/07/2014 by Calcott39 (1 review written)

The installation was completed on time in three days with excellent workmanship. The workers turned up on time and worked through the day with only one break for lunch. There was aproblem with the latching of the back door after installation, but this was corrected very quickly. I also had some brickwork carried out to blank out the ottom half of the lounch window. This was carried out with excellent craftmanship. I am very pleased with the finished product. The only problem was the new… Read Full Review

“where is my refund”

Written on: 04/07/2014 by HopeMacPherson280 (1 review written)

we were pleased with the installation of our windows and considered having a new door, but changed our mind the day after signing the contract which we were within our right to do, but when we found that the deposit had been taken from our account we asked Zenith for this to be returned straight away but were told it could take up to 30 days. This inspite of the terms of the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 which states refunds should be made within 14 days. We have written to Zenith, but… Read Full Review

“New windows ”

Written on: 27/06/2014 by Moore123311 (1 review written)

Having recently been looking at changing my windows I had a few quotes from anglian, Everest, safe style, crystal and zenith. The salesman all took ages in the house as they wouldn't just quote me they had to talk for ages about what they did and show me windows. To be fair it was important to hear them out as they all offer various different thing. Zenith was the last one to come in and go through the process but after hearing what they did I realised they were the only choice. I was fortunate… Read Full Review

“Don't touch Zenith with a barge pole.”

Written on: 26/06/2014 by windowmess (1 review written)

Got talked into having two new front windows after lengthy sales pitch. The type of openings on salesman's drawing were not explained to us. We asked him for side opening but when fitted they are top opening. Because we didn't understand the drawings that salesman had and surveyor didn't explain them to us either, just asked for signature. Installation manager said we have no chance of replacement unless we pay ...again as we signed the contract. Rang to complain to customer services and was… Read Full Review

“Pros and cons”

Written on: 16/06/2014

We found the sales pitch took far too long. I was suspicious about "the call" to the office, especially when our ideal price was agreed. The door was fitted - had a slight problem that was quickly sorted, so all is well there. The TLS cashback is not what it is purported to be. We were told we could earn "a free door". If something sounds too good to be true it usually is so I was sceptical about it from the beginning. In 2 months we have earned 15p! The system was changed and we were not… Read Full Review

“Bad Ethics”

Written on: 10/06/2014

I worked for Zenith for a few months a back. When I started I thought that it was the job to have until when I realized I was over pricing people and talk them into the more expensive route. Sorry enough I had no choice because it was a matter of you sell and you eat if you don’t sell you don’t eat. I couldn't stand myself to be giving people these prices so I was actually a lame sales man or maybe an honest individual and on top of that those in the office will have you calling from the… Read Full Review

“Windows giving you a view into HELL”

Written on: 02/06/2014 by unhappyofwilts (1 review written)

Sales pitch - they just won't shut up and get on with giving you a final quote. Scrappage scheme, advertising brochure discount, discounts for taking out extras, phoney phone call to advertising exec to get that extra discount yep they had it all. Right first time - erm more like wrong every time. I fell for the pitch seemed like a reasonable price for a reasonable product, they love fitting tickle vents at every opportunity which of course completely invalidates their energy savings claims… Read Full Review

“Be warned!!!!!!!”

Written on: 22/05/2014 by Dugganom307 (1 review written)

Be warned do not have them round for a quote! The chap was round for hours. I had to keep asking him to stop talking & just give me a price as it was late and my kids needed to go to bed. Could not get rid of him & kept asking him to leave. In the end my husband had to pack his stuff and aggressively get him to leave. … Read Full Review
